I am getting a mad craving to rewatch To Get Her, a twdrama starring Jiro Wang and Rainie Yang. I love TGH so and find it so ridiculously underrated it's criminal.

The story, involving a washed-out former idol who enrolls in a college and his landlady/fellow student - who is a manga-obsessed otaku not terribly interested in or good with people, brims so much with tenderness, with off-beat delicate charm, that I remember tearing up at random odd scenes.

When it came out, TGH took me completely by surprise - with such a 'wacky' premise and Jiro and Rainie as the leads, I was expecting a lot of random faces and OTT but it's a very quiet, understated story with a quirky, indie vibe (sure, there are one or two OTT scenes in the beginning but the bare minimum possible and they disappear entirely as a drama progresses). This is the drama that made me truly fall in love with both Jiro and Rainie. Jiro embues his man-child trying to grow up and cope with the world that changed from under him with so much sweetness, vulnerability, and honesty, that you can't help but love him. Mars is one of those rare drama characters you'd not mind being around in real life. And Rainie is a huge hit-or-miss actress with me (Miss No Good, anyone? *shudder*) but she is luminescent here as an odd girl content in her oddness (there are no make-overs in this drama - she does not become a gregarious, gorgeously-dressed butterfly. She is loved for who she is) who has all these barriers but once you get past them, is infinitely tender and caring.

Mars and Momo together just work. They are a couple not just because the drama pushes them together and tells you to like it, they are a couple because they become each other's best friends, confidantes, soulmates. They take care of each other, they fight, they make up. They are necessary for each other's wellbeing. And oh, they have some ridiculously crackling chemistry. Sometimes I wanted to look away.

And in a way, their love story is so lovely because, like the best twdrama love stories, it's about finding the truth behind the person's masks. Despite their polar opposite images - a washed-out idol is miles away from a dedicated otaku - they are both outsiders trapped by their personas/perceived only for them. Everyone treats Momo as a weird/untoucheable freak without bothering to look at the girl within. And Mars is perceived by everyone around him as having value only for his former celebrity status or maybe being a beefcake/piece-of-meat to play with. While the reality is infinitely more complicated and the two of them find the person hidden within.

OK, enough of my blathering. Have this lovely MV:

So, year 2009 has been very good for me OTP-wise, providing many a drama OTP for me to swoon over.

But let's see how I did in the "happy ending for the OTP" stakes - do I go for the tragic ones that break my heart or fluffiness?

Here - obviously spoilers for endings of dramas in my tags )


Hmmm. 11/20 happy

I am still dling IRIS and JIN and Next Stop Happiness has only 2 parts of ep 6 subbed (never fear, I watched them) so I decided to check out Hi My Sweetheart.

*shudder*

*shudder*

The horror the horror!

The unfortunate hero of this drama is welcome to be anybody's sweetheart, I suppose, but how he doesn't get dogs set on him in the street is a mystery. His face can stop clocks and give miscarriages to pregnant women. The fact that his personality makes an average dweeb seem cooler than James Dean is not helping either.

I have never, in all my years of drama watching, have seen a leading man so horrifically, appallingly repulsive-looking. I have never seen anything even approaching it. Show Luo, the actor, is an attractive man, and the amount of effort the makers have spent making him look like a fat, greasy, slightly-retarded mushroom is commendable but puzzling.

WHY?

Yes, I know, eventually, under weight of disappointment of being rejected by Rainie Yang, he will turn into a smokin-hot and cool dude but there is no way I, or anyone else I can imagine, would be willing to sit literally through episodes and episodes of disgusting, snail-like gnome to get to that point. Seriously? What the hell were they thinking.

I generally prefer more serious or off-beat twdramas to funny ones because I find the humor completely over-the-top but there have been exceptions through the years. Alas, with a human gargoyle as a male lead, there is no chance this will join the ranks.

I am indifferent to Show Luo one way or another but Rainie, darling, what are you doing in this? Oh well, if this horror is trade-back for the utter perfection of To Get Her, I can deal with this.

To cleanse the palate, TGH mv:



Ahhh, all better.

I do think I want to check out Roseate Love. Angsty shipping and a happy ending. YES.

Out of about a million dramas out there this spring, this is my Drama Spring Roster, i.e. the ones I am following and thus the ones you can expect to see me blab about.

JAPAN

Smile: One episode is out so far. I am so desperate to see this one, I started watching this raw, because arashi.vox's subs are going to be a bit late. Why? I will basically watch anything Matsumoto Jun is in, and this being a love story and social commentary on mistreatment of foreigners, plus written by the writer of Hanadan and Utahime, and directed by the director of Hanadan, I am set, so very set.

KOREA

Princess Ja Myung Go: Eleven episodes are out so far. I have yet to see a Korean period drama that was not good, but PJMG seems especially made for me - a strong female protagonist, doomed love, poisonous politics, amazing fights, dysfunctional families, gorgeous art design. I love this drama so incredibly much.

Slingshot: Five episodes are out so far. I like gritty dark revenge dramas, so it would have probably always been something for me to check out, but once I found out the screenwriter was the one who wrote Legend, Sandglass, and Eyes of Dawn, I came madly on-board.

TAIWAN

Black and White: Four episodes are out so far. It is THE drama of the spring season for me. Have a bunch of my favorite actors, throw in great production values, action scenes, friendship, twisty plot, strong women, and promise of clever story and angst. I am so very sold.

ToGetHer: ten episodes are out. There is always room for whimsical, tender romantic comedy on my list, and I have been quite in love with this drama so far. Not to mention the story of an otaku and a washed-out idol is deliciously off-kilter, and I adore both Jiro Wang and Rainie Yang.

REJECTS

Atashinchi no Danshi (Japan): I like Horikita Maki but not enough to watch her interact with a bunch of remarkably unattractive men.

Knock Knock Loving You (Taiwan): Knock Knock Raping You is more like it. No thank you. I don't need a Dylan Kuo (thankfully the non-rapist in this one) fix that badly.

Empress Chin Chu (Korea): this sounds very much like my thing, being a period epic and a woman-centric one to boot, but I can handle only one long period drama at a time.

Queen of Housewives (Korea): even the title is boring.

City Hall (Korea): you know what is even more boring than Queen of Housewives? A drama about a small-town city mayor. No thanks.

Cinderella Man (Korea): glad as I am to see a drama where Kwon Sang Woo won't die in agony or have his loved ones do the same, this just sounds really really uninspired - though two look-alikes, one poor one rich, is cute enough I might check out if one of my watched dramas ends.

My drama-watching life has been taken over by Taiwan!

Or, more specifically, the following four dramas

1. ToGetHer. If you are on my flist, you've likely heard more than enough about my love for this drama so I'll try to be brief. Eps 8 and 9 are total love. This drama is getting better and better! ((Jiro)) ((Rainie)) Oh, and the dancing scene in ep 9 made me melt. If I listed all the reasons I love this drama, it would take forever, but the top two are (1) Mars and Momo are both such lovely people. They are this rarity in dramas (though less rare in twdramas) - people I wouldn't mind knowing in RL; and (2) They are aware of their feelings towards each other.

2. They Kiss Again a.k.a. ISWAK2. Once again, if you are on my flist, you have heard more than enough about this drama. I have dled all eps AND have a DVD version so once I have a few hours block, I am binging on the hilarious adorableness that is Xiang Qin and Zhi Shu.

3. Knock Knock Loving You.



Ok, ok, that's a horrible title but whatever! I get to see Dylan Kuo be hot and romantic (and preferably not leaving me a sobbing wreck by the end - I still have PTSD from The Outsiders, thank you very much!) in a drama that will actually get subbed. It also stars two ladies I am not familiar with and Ming Dao (who I am indifferent to at best) but honestly? I am such a pathetic Dylan fangirl, the rest of the characters could be played by finger puppets. Plus, he conducts! Kinda like Rui :P

4. Black and White (am just about to start) Vic. Vic Zhou. Vic Zhou as a hot cop. Vic Zhou as a hot cop with angst and issues. Vic Zhou as a hot cop with angst and issues who also makes out with ladies on screen. Vic Zhou as a hot cop with angst and issues who also makes out with ladies on screen and has an almost-equally-hot cop partner. Vic Zhou as a hot cop with angst and issues who also makes out with ladies on screen and has an almost-equally-hot cop partner together with whom they fight an evil conspiracy run by Kingone. Vic Zhou as a hot cop with angst and issues who also makes out with ladies on screen and has an almost-equally-hot cop partner together with whom they fight an evil conspiracy run by Kingone while Vic gets beaten up or emo and potentially romantically involved with a girl.

"Why do I suddenly have feelings for him, like the ones I do for Prince Kasaba?"

!!!! She has compared him to her favorite manga character. ROFLSQUEE. It's looooooooooooove.



Even more so than when he runs around the park at night in the rain to find her hiding in a pipe and he pulls her up and she just clutches him, crying and he just looks thunderstruck and sort of just stands there and then slowly puts his arm around her and rather prosaically tells her "let's get an umbrella." And then buys her dinner and fusses that she is eating too fast or that she went out in the rain when she had a cold recently. MMMMM.

Caps from that scene )

Guys, you have no idea how ridiculously happy To Get Her makes me. Or how many times I've rewatched the scene of Momo in the pipe in the park and Mars coming to get her. *satiated shipper squee* They are such awesome adorable dorks! And he takes such good care of her despite denying that it's anything special to the death and, hey, it's only fair, because she took such good care of him earlier and helped him out. I love stories where the OTP are actually functional together and friends and good to and with each other - Taiwanese dramas are awesome at that.

"Why do I suddenly have feelings for him, like the ones I do for Prince Kasaba?"

!!!! She has compared him to her favorite manga character. ROFLSQUEE. It's looooooooooooove.



Even more so than when he runs around the park at night in the rain to find her hiding in a pipe and he pulls her up and she just clutches him, crying and he just looks thunderstruck and sort of just stands there and then slowly puts his arm around her and rather prosaically tells her "let's get an umbrella." And then buys her dinner and fusses that she is eating too fast or that she went out in the rain when she had a cold recently. MMMMM.

Caps from that scene )

Guys, you have no idea how ridiculously happy To Get Her makes me. Or how many times I've rewatched the scene of Momo in the pipe in the park and Mars coming to get her. *satiated shipper squee* They are such awesome adorable dorks! And he takes such good care of her despite denying that it's anything special to the death and, hey, it's only fair, because she took such good care of him earlier and helped him out.
