I restarted The X-Family, and dorky Jiro is soooo cute!

It also seems that his OTP is (1) his childhood OTP (2) possibly his sister (3) offspring of evilest family trying to take over the world.

Se is also a tough drummer chick.

Somewhere, there is a decade of kdramas weeping for all of those plots back :P

It's going to be a lil weird watching them as Han and Xia Tian because they are playing the AU versions of themselves in KO 3an Guo as Sun Ce and Da Qiao, who are quite different from Han/XT. Hmm.

Have a MV (now with bonus Hanadan soundtrack).



Why is Jiro so adorable? And why do I have no Jiro icons? And why is (was?) Farenheit three hot people plus Calvin? :P

I mean, ep 11 gives us baths of angst, starring Wu Zun and his marvelous arms:








Argh, evil cousin of Wu Zun's character, I hope you die in a fire. Seriously, wtf, psycho! Dude just manipulated the situation to take away not only the company but even the house and is now gloating in WZ's face for being too trusting - i.e. not thinking his family is a pack of two-faced hyenas. DIE! I mean, the rationale isn't that WZ ran the company badly or treated people awfully - nah, it's just that he trusted his family. WTF.

He was about to propose to Rainie, too, and you ruined it! On plus side, it did result in the above-mentioned bath, so it's not all bad.

In case you need more convincing, two shippy scenes from ep 11 - one funny and one touching )

My current/asap twdrama roster is this, Love Keeps Going, Material Queen, Calling for Love, I Do, KO 3an Guo, The X-Family, That Love Comes, Marry Me, Because of You, Bump Off Lover, Roseate Love, In Time With You, Ring Ring Bell, and Material People (though I suppose the latter is a cdrama). Plus a few others. And I feel like rewatching Wish to See You Again. Good Lord.

1. So, I finally got to the break-up scene in Bu Bu Jing Xin. Thinky thinky thinky )

2. When I stopped with my watch of K.O. 3an Guo, I stopped with ep 37. However, it was a while, so when starting my binge, I went a few eps back, and restarted my watch with ep 34-35. In which we have Guan Yu defending the honor of his "Big Sister-in-Law" Shang Xiang (and losing for the first time ever!), an apprearance by Sun Quan (played by the awesome Xie Jie Kai), a blessed lack of Dong Zhuo and Lu Bu (who are getting on my nerves lately) and a LOT of handholding. A LOT.

Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaps )

3. My Girlfriend is a Gumiho continues so wonderful. The last scene in ep 8 took my breath away.

Scene here )

4. So, The Princess' Man. I confess to neglecting it for a bit due to my obsession with BBJX, but now I am back on track. I watched ep 17 and peeked at one specific scene in ep 20.

Thoughts and caps )

5. While waiting for subs for Sword Heroes' Fate, I peeked at ep 31, where Nic Tse finally succeeds getting the amulet that will restore Charlene's memories and idenity. AWWWW. Gosh. Though I wish there was an easier way to rekindle a spark in their relationship than battles to the death (wtf is with the bad guy anyway - what kind of psycho traps a bunch of people in a violent sim game and wipes a woman's memories and personality just so he could lure her bf in for a gamer battle? Honestly).

Shippy awesomeness here )

6. Once I finish with KO 3an Guo, I really must continue with The X-Family. I stopped on ep 6 because it's a prequel of sorts to KO 3an Guo and thus was getting confusing. Have a MV. It's very shounen-like and I like that sort of thing.

The head-to-toe leather! The women kowtowing at his feet! The bling! The teased hair! The spikes! He's clearly auditioning for Sensual Phrase :P






He is so much of a rock god, he doesn't need to plug his electric guitar because electricity literally flows through his body. Ahahahahahhaa.




Also, like a true manga rocker wannabe, he has no objections to making out with his sister.



Jiro Wang amply deserves his paycheck for managing to keep his face straight during this scene.

dangermousie: (KO 3an Guo: Xiu/SX)
I figured out fairly quickly (OK, I am lying, it took me 20 eps or so :P) into KO 3an Guo that Dong Cheng Wei is a real-life rock band. And Xiu a.k.a. fake Liu Bei (who is fast becoming my fave character in the drama) is DCW's guitarist. I probably should have known from the moment they were doing close-ups of his hands playing guitar - they tend to avoid it like the plague with actors who are only pretending to know how to play.

Check out this MV. I totally like the way they sound.



Apparently they are an 'underground' rock band (whatever that means) formed in high school who stuck around ever since and apparently Jiro Wang is a member who used to be lead vocals until he got drafted into Farenheit (though apparently he's also still with DCW? Not sure how that works).

Here they are performing the end theme of K.O. 3an Guo with Pets Ceng, who plays Shang Xiang in the drama:



Also, totally random, but while looking at stuff on wiki, the Jiro article says "When he was 18, his father died, leaving him with his mother to pay the family's debt. This forced him into the commercial and modeling industry." How insane. I thought that only happened in dramas, but apparently not.

Speaking of Jiro - I started The X-Family and really didn't care for ep 1 - I can't say it is more OTT than KO 3an Guo, because KO 3an Guo was pretty insane, but in KO 3an Guo I knew who the characters were and had a structure due to knowing about Three Kingdoms (and a lot of fun came from seeing that classic so spoofed) but with X-Family, I do not have the same structure so I am pretty lost and there is nothing for me grab on as a lifeline in the sea of insanity.

However, I always give at least 5 eps to a drama, especially a long one, and I persevered. And I am glad I did because I really liked ep 2 - I think culture shock has worn off an I am settling in. Plus how could I not be lenient towards a drama that has Jiro look like the dorkiest dork who ever dorked:



And who turns into this when his powers are released. The powers of crazy styling, I presume :P



Plus, Xiu! I have the world's biggest crush on his character in K.O.3an Guo.



So much fun.

dangermousie: (KO 3an Guo: GY/DC love)
1. It kept bugging me where I have seen Xiao Qiao's actress before so I finally went to DramaWiki. She was the lead in the awful awful Summer x Summer with Joe Cheng. I liked her and Joe Cheng is always one of my favorites but that was an awful, awful, awful drama.

2. Ep 30 made me really and truly love Diao Chan. Alone out of all our mains, male or female, she has zero fighting skills. Even if you take the deadly guys out the equation, Shang Xiang is super-powerful, ditto for Da Qiao, and Xiao Qiao is really good with those fighting fans. But DC is basically a muggle, to borrow a Harry Potter term. When the gals go in to rescue the guys who are about to be executed by Dong Zhuo, they ask DC to stay behind because she can't fight. That's why it's all the more handcore when she shows up as demonized Lu Bu* (ugh, die already!!!) is about to kill DQ and SX as the bound Wu Hu Jiang et al can't do annything but watch. And she steps in front of Shang Xiang and Da Qiao who are about to be blasted to smithereens, because she'd be damned if she let's the bad guys kill Guan Yu and her friends, and if she can't stop it, she will die with them.



She is very ladylike but underneath it all, she's pure steel.

* There was a hint earlier she might have to get back together with Lu Bu as a bargaining chip at some point? Please no, I hate him, not to mention that would really eff up my OTP. Plus, having to put up with a whiny scumbag like Lu Bu is bad enough under any circumstances, but after having been with Guan Yu and seeing what a good guy is like, that's doubly horrid.

Those of you who are fed up by my K.O. 3an Guo posts, rejoice! I just finished ep 30. I can't get my hands on 31-32 and they are only available via torrents for now and I can't torrent, and eps 33-53 are not subbed yet.

Alas.

Of course, you do realize this means I am going to work backwards and start on The X-Family right?
