dangermousie: (Hu Ge by kycoo)


The amazing, wonderful, super etc etc etc Heaven and Earth fansubbers have just released the first episode of my all-time favorite drama The Myth. The rest of the episodes are being actively subbed.

Get it here.

The story's protagonist is thrown back into the last years of the Qin Dynasty and tries to cope with the strange, cruel world without losing his soul. The Myth is my favorite drama. The one who made me a Hu Ge fangirl for life. It's smart and heart-breaking and passionate and it made me cry and care more than any other drama before or since. If you need verification, check my 'the myth' tag (you may have to skip a few entries to get to when I was watching and obsessing) or reconfirm with [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf. The first ep is largely set-up (the really great stuff starts in ep 2) but yeah - I always say that if you watch only one drama in your life, make it this one. My best friend, [livejournal.com profile] fire_snake, who refuses to watch dramas, obsessed and marathoned this one and this one only.

This is a pretty good MV for the vibe:



Please thank the H&E team :)

dangermousie: (Three Kingdoms: OTP)


I am about to restart my watch of Three Kingdoms and I realized I had these caps from the last Lu Bu/Diaochan scene before he got captured and executed and I never posted them because the OTP imploded shortly after this and I didn't feel like looking at my caps. Randomly crying at one's laptop is sort of a sign of insanity. Well, I've had a month to chill since then, so here you go.

Pretty angsty caps )

I don't really have any death caps because I was too busy bawling my head while watching to cap and I can't really see myself going back to cap any time soon (I am not that much of a masochist) so there's that.

I just realized something - my two favorite cdrama OTPs are both (a) period secondary OTPs (b) involving fierce but not too-bright warlords (c) who fall in love with their tough wives at first sight (d) and end up in death-suicide which makes me bawl. Three Kingdoms had nothing on The Myth where Xiong Yu/Xiao Yue made me cry so hard I literally had to throw up and lie down. Their death scene remains the most epic, amazing, and awful drama scene I've ever seen. From anywhere.

In other news, the Warlord Mousie Would Most Like to Take Home (and then make sure he doesn't off me or steal things) award goes to:



Yup. My favorite character in 3K is still Cao Cao. I can't stand Liu Bei, who hasn't done anything awful, but I love Cao Cao, who has done plenty of awful things, including killing half my OTP and causing the other half to off herself so as to avoid submitting to dishonor. And I still love the man. Clearly, there is nothing he can do to make me not love him.

Oh, and since I am about to restart 3K, inspect more insane binges and posts. This drama devours my life.

I am a bad bad person but I am currently watching ep 35 (aka the last ever) of Jade Palace Lock Heart. I have no idea what is going on, as that's 27 eps after where I am currently at, plus no subs, but can't stop.

Livebloggy thoughts on the ep and caps of my fave scene )

Last ep was a little choppy but very satisfying (and I've heard the tv version is supposed to be slightly different/with more stuff than the DVD version this was ripped from).

ILY, JPLH.

Oh, and they announced there will be a sequel. Cannot wait! because )

Ep 1 is out:



Same user uploaded through ep 10 so far.

No subs yet but I watched ep 1 raw and it's pretty easy to follow if you read detailed synopsis/movie summary (otoh, I find Chinese Iljimae basically impossible to follow without subs which is a huge pity because it looks intense and gorgeous).

My thoughts are that as far as first episodes go this one gets an A++ rating from me. I find cdramas start rather slowly, as well they might, seeing that they usually have 40-50 eps to play with. This first ep holds up better than the first ep of my favorite drama The Myth (which has an OK first ep but nothing to hint at the brilliance to come) and is much better than first eps of LOCH2008 and ROCH2006, two of my huge favorites.

I am never interested in the modern portions of these stories, so I especially liked that after 5 minutes or so, we go back to the start - the Qin Dynasty. We are introduced to all of our major players and some connections are started - more specifically Qin Emperor's obsession with Ady An. As I do not speak Mandarin, I am not 100% sure, but I believe the fixation is not due to her pretty looks but to that amulet she had - probably some relation to his quest for immortality. Our star-crossed lovers Du Chen and Ady An have barely met (if you call knocking out during a swordfight a meeting) but I can't wait to see more of the two of them together. Du Chen - daaaaaaaamn, the guy is hot. It must the Qin hairstyle + the armor + swordfighting + honorable demeanor because I don't find him particularly coronary-inducing in modern getup. But as sexy Qin general - oh, whoa. Ady An is her gorgeous, adorable self. There is not even a tiny hint of angst yet but I know how these things work - they sucker you in with the cute and then -- whaaaaam.

So, a winner.
