1. Have not yet seen this week's Bridal Mask so do not spoil me (staying away from tumblr). Am waiting for 720p :)

2. The upcoming City Conquest sounds like nightmare on a stick - it has the director of IRIS and is based on a manga about vengeance that sounds very much up my alley BUT not only does it have more wooden than a tree Kim Hyun Joong as the lead (why?! I think he's adorable in real life and drop-dead gorgeous but he cannot act to save his life and has zero dramatic star charisma in drama roles, as opposed to on-stage) but, even deadlier, the screenwriter is the one who wrote that appalling mess Lie to Me. Right now, I will be tuning in out of sheer horrified curiously. (Honestly, there are a TON of wonderful young actors out there - why does KHJ get the gig?)

3. There are still no previews for this week's A Gentleman's Dignity. Argh! I keep wondering what is going to happen to our four couples. Here are my hypotheses:

* Jang Rok/Min Sook - I would be shocked if they got divorced - their weird marriage clearly works for them. The question is how JR will worm himself back into her graces. I doubt he would ever reform.
* Tae San/Sera - I don't really care tbh. They sidestepped their real issues - her insecurities and high-maintenance, his solipsism and bossiness. They are making some steps so I think it will work out, but honestly, they are pretty shallow and self-involved.
* Yoon/Maeri - they are at an impasse. It's pretty clear to the viewers but not to Maeri that Yoon is head over heels for her, but it's equally clear he feels bound by his promise to Tae San and his own feelings of age difference/unworthiness/whatever and thus will not make a move. His being scared for her safety didn't draw him out and neither did stirring of jealousy or her steady and open devotion. At this point, I'd like for Maeri to give up and for Yoon to chase but I can't see that. He needs to be either truly made jealous or for her to really end up in some life-threatening situation to break past his barriers. Because it will be worth it.
* Do Jin/Yi Soo - I think it's pretty clear after ep 10, they are about to enter the bliss of mutual attraction and love. I want to see them be a happy solid new couple (hopefully with epic make-outs, though Yi Soo is a bit on the conservative side so I think Do Jin will have to wait a bit for sex, alas). I am pretty sure Colin is DJ's son but before that comes up or even more mundane things, like Yi Soo being traditional and wanting marriage and Do Jin's feelings on that more unclear (he said in that interview he didn't want a wife but it's clear he's breaking all his rules as far as Yi Soo is concerned), I want some glowy honeymoony stuff.

4. I am so excited for Five Fingers, that will be replacing AGD because Joo Ji Hoon, one of my earliest and most enduring kdrama loves, will be starring in it. I think his last drama was in 2007 which is much much too long.

5. Speaking of excited, Kim Young Chul is joining Nice Guy as Moon Chae Won's father/husband to Park Shi Yeon/guy who PSY ditched Song Joong Ki for. He played MCW's Dad in one of my all-time faves, The Princess' Man - clearly he is gunning for a 'MCW's Dad who is hated by her love' niche.

6. I dumped Flower Boy Ramyun Shop but this MV has got me to reconsider:



Off to get eps!

I haven't done my usual ginormous 'end of year' post but you may rest assured that the drama that is going to get 'most romantic' award is TPM. In large part due to scenes behind the cut.

Everything I ever wanted )

I am watching eps 23/24 of TPM with 'proper' subs.



Guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh.

Now, where are my Family Honor eps, again? I believe I stopped with ep 31 and must must must continue now.

I am in week 2 of my drama slump, which is pretty unprecedented for me (I don't remember the last time I went two weeks without a drama). I do have Boku To Star No 99 Nichi first ep with subs - it's a jdrama with Kim Tae Hee as an actress and Nishijima Hidetoshi as her bodyguard. Maybe it will break the drought. I think The Princess' Man has ruined me for all other dramas for a while. I really need to post caps of the last two eps. Hmmm, maybe I really should give Tree with Deep Roots a chance and finally get to Man of Honor.

Meanwhile, I've been watching the second season of Boardwalk Empire with Mr. Mousie (I don't post about it much because I get all the discussion I want with him, but it's my favorite airing show) and checking out the pilot for Revenge - not bad, if possibly a bit too OC-with-vengeance so far to really make me rabid. Also has this:



Mmmm. Kyle, you've grown up nice.

But what I've mainly been doing, was rereading Paullina Simons' WW2 trilogy - The Bronze Horseman, Tatiana and Alexander and The Summer Garden. I think Tatiana and Alexander are my favorite literary OTP of all time, with the exception of Lymond and Philippa from Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles. Those books are so gorgeous and emotional, they make me want to both weep and roll around like a puppy in glee. I mean, see this:

Alexander moved her off him, laid her down, was over her, was pressed into her, crushing her. Anthony was right there, he didn't care, he was trying to inhale her, trying to absorb her into himself. "All this time you were stepping out in front of me, Tatiana," he said. "Now I finally understand. You hid me on Bethel Island for eight months. For two years you hid me and deceived me - to save me. I am such an idiot," he whispered. "Wretch or not, ravaged or not, in a carapace or not, there you still were, stepping out for me, showing the mute mangled stranger your brave and indifferent face."

Her eyes closed, her arms tightened around his neck. "That stranger is my life," she whispered. They crawled away from Anthony, from their only bed, onto a blanket on the floor, barricading themselves behind the table and chairs. "You left our boy to go find me, and this is what you found..." Alexander whispered, on top of her, pushing inside her, searching for peace.

Crying out underneath him, Tatiana clutched his shoulders.

"This is what you brought back from Sachsenhausen." his movement was tense, deep, needful.
Oh God. Now there was comfort. "You thought you were bringing back him, but Tania, you brought back me."

"Shura...you'll have to do..." Her fingers were clamped into his scars.

"In you," said Alexander, lowering his lips to her parted mouth and cleaving their flesh, "are the answers to all things."

All the rivers flowed into the sea and still the sea was not full.


Written for me. Just for me.

So yeah, dramas don't really satisfy after that.

Seems I only use dw when lj is down (note to self - import entries).

Bad self! Bad!

Anyway, I am currently obsessively refreshing soompi's The Princess' Man thread every ten seconds, smiling and cursing alternately and muttering (no, I am not making up) 'please don't die please don't die please don't die!' every other time (more so for Seung Yoo than Se Ryung because I think she's safer).

Grah.

This will be the death of me.

If you pull a Chuno and keep my OTP alive against all odds, I will love you forever, drama. And maybe do a ritual sacrifice in your honor or something. Please!
