With everything else, I did manage to get some drama viewing in. YES. It pays to be an insomniac.

Finished Loveholic and Taiyou No Kisetsu finally. Loveholic required a lot of ffing on my part. Ultimately, it was an OK drama, but I adored eps 1-5 and then it somehow all dissipated. The pace slowed from scamper to a crawl, and the story tropes shifted. Oh well. It was still worth it to see the incredible hotness of Kang Ta. TnK was likewise a flawed drama with some excellent moments. Surprisingly, I was happy with the ending. Takki's character deserved to lose something crucial to him, after making others suffer. I have to admit his friend and OTP were a lot more forgiving than I would have been. Kudos to him for playing an unsympathetic character through. I ended up liking Shinji the best. He really was a nice guy. Also, anyone who's seen it: did Yuki (the girl who Takki seduced, Shinji's fiancee) ended up going insane and Shinji is visiting her in an institution at the end?

I also watched more of Yoshitsune which I really like. The child!Yoshitsune is not only adorable, he really looks like he could be mini Takki. Good casting job. I also adore Yoshitsune Mama. It takes nerve to show up at the stronghold of the man who killed your bf and is the top enemy of the clan to which your three kids with bf belong, and ask for their lives. And to be willing to offer herself to him as a mistress (the man who killed your OTP!) in exchange without flinching. She is made of STEEL. Yoshitsune!Papa we didn't get to know much, but from what we saw, he was sword-loving and hot. So plusses there, too.

But anyway, this is not what the post is about. This is a picspam of the promised manpain of awesomeness from Time between Dog and Wolf. Lee Jun Ki in all his angsty glory.

Afer ep 9 of Taiyou No Kisetsu I decided I needed a break. I was hating Tatsuya. I love and feel very sorry for Shinji though, the object of Tatsuya's wrath. After Tatsuya ruined him and Shinji's friend tried to stab Tatsuya but Shinji wouldn't let him and got accidentally stabbed instead, but then, instead of railing, as all his friends watch in shock, he kneels to Tatsuya, bleeding, and begs him to give Yuki (Shinji's fiancee that he's loved since childhood that Tatsuya seduced) back? Yeah. I think in a lot of other dramas, he'd be the protagonist instead. Nice guy who befriends the 'villain' who seeks to ruin his life for something Shinji's family did, not him.

Basically, I loathe the protagonist about now, when you add in the fact that he treated Eiko (the heroine) abominably. Ugh.

So I decided I wanted some period fun, ergo I finally started Handsome Siblings, Chinese period drama with Nicholas Tse (I posted about it before). I am only at the opening credits but let me say that NT fighting blindfolded in the rain is the hottest thing ever.

OMG. I just finished episode 8 of Taiyou No Kisetsu (I think I will finish it tonight) and [livejournal.com profile] winterspel is right: the second half of this drama is not as good as the first.

Also? The end of 8 made me want to stab the protagonist (Tatsya) in the face. You do NOT do that to Eiko. I don't care about your excuse. Ugh. STAB. I hope she kicks you in the head.

P.S. I promise to get to all the replies tonight.

I have realized this morning that in three jdramas I’ve seen the male protagonist’s father killed himself. Seeing that I haven’t seen dozens and dozens jdramas, I think this is a curious concentration of that theme. So being me, I decided to blab and meta about it obsessively, to compare and contrast the treatment of this topic in Tatta Hitotsu No Koi, Kurosagi and Taiyou No Kisetsu.

Hmmm, maybe I should do a scholarly paper or similar, ‘The abandoning father in Japanese drama’ Heh.

Thoughts on the issue )

I also watched the ending of the drama, not just that one little bit.

They ran away from home.

I repeat.

They ran away from home.

*flail*

They are soooo young here and so adorable and he brings her to his grotty apartment and is all 'are you surprised it's so messy and small' and so anxious and shy and eeeeee.

If there are more gorgeous things in the drama world than intense, uncertain Taizawa Hideaki in a white-dress shirt, I don't want to know it. My heart won't stand it.

Seriously, I space out staring at him.

P.S. The fact that I know how to spell 'taiyou no kisetsu' off the top of my head is sort of scary.

Sorry for the spammage. I don't often do 'post as I watch' posts but Taiyou No Kisetsu got me scarily flaily. I was literally high-pitch squealing at the screen.
