[livejournal.com profile] aliaspiral's awesome post (note: detailed spoilers for entire plot) made me realize that much anticipated (by me) Chinese movie Butterfly Lovers, starring the impossibly gorgeous Wu Zun and Charlene Choi, as the titular lovers, is out and out with subs (you can find it both on jdramas and youtube).



I am watching it and it's such love. It's as if it has been written especially to cater to me. The story? Think Romeo & Juliet set in Medieval China with swords and cross-dressing, or maybe Hana Kimi if it was a tragedy. MMMM.



Our heroine (Charlene Choi, looking adorably feminine even cross-dressing) dresses as a boy in order to train with a particular martial arts sect which does not accept women. The senior student at the school (played by Wu Zun. Oh God, he is scarily gorgeous) takes her under his wing and they become friends. And then fall in love. Oh, and he discovers she is a woman. Lovely, right? Well, seeing that it's a Chinese take on Romeo & Juliet, I think you can figure out what kind of an ending this will have. All sorts of deliciously shippy and amazingly angsty things happen that make me love it.



I was going to cap the movie (it's very gorgeous) but for some reason GOM refused to cap by 1+GB version. Such is my dedication to sharing the pretty and the angst that I dled from youtube and capped parts.

Caps of gorgeousness. Nonspoilery )

Oh, and here are caps from my favorite scene where the OTP channels Romeo & Juliet.

Aaaangst, spoilery angst here )

Here is a spoilery but an awesome MV (seriously, how spoilery can it be? It's a Chinese version of R&J - really does anyone not know how this is bound to end?)

OK, Red River manga owns me.

I just got to the scene in volume 8 which made me die. Prince Kail has to remove the arrow from Yuri’s back and of course back then there is no anesthetic or anything so he has to cause all this pain to the woman he lurves. So he gets a heated dagger and then he holds her tightly and tells her to bite his shoulder because otherwise she’ll clench her teeth so hard she’ll hurt herself, and so OMG, he is cutting the arrow out of her so she is bleeding and in huge pain and she is biting down and so there is blood coming out of his shoulder now too and…seriously. Crack.

Did I mention that she got this wound because she was there during the assassination (by evil minions of the Queen) of Prince Zananza, Kail’s favorite brother and the closest friend Yuri had in the place? Angst. And then she wakes up all bandanged after a few days, in Kail’s gigantic bed and he comes in and she is all ‘sex, now? eeek’ and he is all ‘I am not the type to take advantage of a wounded woman, but I can’t sleep since Zananza’s death but with you in bed I can maybe fall asleep’ and there is kissing and sleeping (not of sexual variety) and seriously. Crack. And the best part? I am on volume 9 now and you know what strikes me? All the adventures, scheming etc aside, Kail and Yuri have an incredibly strong and functional relationship.

Speaking of crack, I just came across this upcoming mainland China drama, The Butterfly Lovers (Liang Shan Bo Yu Zhu Ying Tai). It sounds like a Chinese version of Romeo and Juliet and how could I not love a period drama about angsty lovers.

Plot: A beautiful girl disguises herself as a man and lives under one roof with a young male scholar for three years without revealing her true identity. They become "sworn brothers," soul mates and then lovers. In a world in which marriage is determined by social status and arranged by parents, what is their inescapable Romeo-and-Juliet-type of fate?

*dies*
