1. I am sure anyone who's interested has found it by now, but in case you haven't, long, 26-min trailer for Jade Palace Lock Heart is behind the cut )

So gooooood! This is providing me with new criteria for boyfriend-picking - is the guy going to be willing to gut-stab self in days before modern surgery and antibiotics to save my life? If so, he gets into my skirts. (Other criteria - please pick someone whose relatives are not homicidal in their efforts to get on the throne - that way you won't have to be in danger in the first place). You know, the more I watch JPLH in general, the more I realize how well Hanadan framework works in a period drama - it raises the stakes to life-and-death levels and makes some actions and general personalities more realistic.

2. In news of dramas other than JPLH, I am really enjoying New Tales of the Gisaeng. It's a typical family drama with a billion storylines and I skip them all except for those involving Saran and Damo (individually and together) but their story I love so much! Also, love that he's mouthy to his awful father. I hate when characters are filial to bastards.

Some caps of cuteness )

3. I finished Taiyou no Uta. So good. My favorite scene was this one in ep 7. Scene in question )

4. Checked the ending of Otomen to make sure it ended to my liking (jdramas tend to do annoyingly open endings) and yay! cuteness here )

5. In case there is any doubt about which couple I ship in Dream High, guess which scene I rewatched the most in ep 9? Go ahead, guess!!! )

6. In case you can't get enough of the "woman travels through time and ends up in love triangle with future emperor Yongzheng and Yinsi (aka guys I refer to as Four and Eight in my JPLH posts), may I alert you to Bu Bu Jing Xin, coming out later this year and starring Liu Shi Shi as the time-traveller and Nicky Wu and Kevin Cheng as the princes. I love LSS, not familiar with two male leads but they seem fine enough. It's supposed to be an angsty take on all of it (to which I want to say "only in period cdrama would JPLH be considered anything but an angstfest." Heh).

Either way, it looks freaking gorgeous )

Without knowing anything about this story's take, I rec LSS to go for future emperor. I mean, from what [livejournal.com profile] hollyxu told me, historical version of Eight ended up being tortured/poisoned in prison, which isn't really a great marriage prospect.

I am exactly halfway through Taiyou no Uta and it's official - this is likely the best romantic jdrama I have ever seen. Better than Tatta Hitotsu no Koi. Better than Itoshi Kimi E. Better than Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake. Better than Majo no Jouken. Possibly better than Aishteiru to Itte Kure and Pride (romance-wise, not overall, of course). This is so so so SO good, you guys! It's every thing I wanted in a drama, not knowing I did. And the best part it's all so wistful and understated while being swoonily romantic at the same time.

This scene in ep 5 speaks for itself )

Have another MV. This one is that rarity-of-rarities, unspoilery.

I WANT TO TAKE A BASEBALL BAT TO HIS EX'S HEAD.

GO AWAY, YOU STALKERY MANIPULATIVE USER SKANK.

ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGHGHGHGHGHG!

Seriously - on what planet is this OK - "hey, you know how I dumped you years ago to be rich and famous and sleep with my producer? Well, I can't seem to write any songs and am in career trouble, so please come back and play guitar for me like you used to - it's totally for the sake of your girlfriend! Otherwise my producer will want her songs so we can pretend it was written by me. But if you work with me, I'll totally have inspiration and your gf won't be offered to be my ghostwriter. She'll totally be OK with being dumped by music producer as prospect entirely and with her OTP working with his bitch ex."

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?

DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DDDDDDDDDDIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIE.

I love that he tells her to fuck off and walks out. In your face, whiny selfish user freak!

I looooove a good 'hate to death' secondary girl.

ETA: Holy %^&*, he is kneeling and begging the producer to give Kaoru a chance. In front of a bazillion office people. OMG.




Honestly, his ex was insane to dump him. Severely insane.

Who wouldn't want a guy who'd wake up every day at 4am just to come by your window to try to get you to talk to him and come out of your "I must renounce all worldly bonds" shell? Well, probably not if that means you have to be dying. I mean, 4am? That's SERIOUS dedication. I wouldn't get up that early, let alone for weeks, even if the world was ending.

A few caps and thoughts )
