Sorry for being relatively MIA for the last few days. What with Baby Mousie's birthday party, family visiting, Valentine's Day, it got a little busy. But now the family went home (boooo, I love having Mr. Mousie's parents around), the party is over (it was a big hit - 9 of her friends came and she had a blast. She's been muttering "Happy Day, Heehee [corruption of her name]" ever since and demanding cake). And V Day is behind us - it was our 11-yr anniversary. We got a babysitter and went to a dinner and a movie. Munchkin was verrrry grumpy at me this morning for 'ditching' her but eventually condescended to forgive me. Oh, and Mr. Mousie gave me an amazon gift card among other things, which I have already partially used to acquire for my kindle a book on the Tang Dynasty as well as a book on the Incas I've been eyeing for months.
Anyway, back to dramas.
1. Dream High( Dream High ep 13 quick thoughts )
2. Jade Palace Lock Heart:( Jade Palace Lock Heart ep 8 )
3. Haven't had time yet to catch up this weekend's eps of New Tales of the Gisaeng
but seeing that I am only watching one storyline, it won't take long. I honesntly cannot imagine any circumstances under which Saran will become a gisaeng, but supposedly she will, so I am very curious.
4. Is The Duo
done with its childhood scenes yet? I want to check it out but only once adults come on the scene.
5. The first ep of the Inuyasha-type The Holy Pearl
is about halfway subbed so I am going to check it out. Apparently they credited Inuyasha so it's all cool :)
ETA: Just finished the first ep and I like. It helps that I always found Gillian Chung immensely likeable on-screen though she isn't much of an actress. It's fun, animeish fantasy - not a serious materpiece or anything, but quite enjoyable. Plus, horned dude is hot.
6. The list of unsubbed cdramas that I really really would love to watch if only subs were out there is as long as my arm, but I am adding another one to it: The Conquest/The Warriors
, starring Chen Kun and Sonija Kwok as star-crossed lovers in the Warring Kingdoms period (I think). There's slavery, angst, shippiness and other good things. Have a MV:
7. I've pretty much lost interest in Bu Bu Jing Xin
, the upcoming period/timetravel drama with Liu Shishi, because fishcake
gave me some details on the plot and it has some really big dealbreakers for me, but I have to say the design looks gorgeous. Hellochloe posted some new stills on her blog
. Go take a look :)
8. Great news! Jiang Hu picked up cdrama Iljimae
for subbing! You probably know them from Legend of Condor Heroes 200, HXM's Shanghai Bund etc. They are really really really good! It will probably take them a while to get to it seeing that they are busy subbing the monster Three Kingdoms
(which I am dying to watch), but when they do, it will be excellent excellent subs!
