I confess my interest in Rooftop Prince is beginning to wane. I am currently managing to keep up with 4 airing dramas (all three W/Th dramas and Love Rain) but I am about to add Hero to the list and try to catch up on God of War and if I will find that I need to drop one, RP will probably be the one. It's a cute, sweet drama but it's darling fluff and I am constitutionally unable to be fully invested in a fluffy drama to the extent I prefer other kinds.

This said, the sequence at the end of ep 5 was adorable.

Sequence in question )

Also, Yoochun looks about 200x hotter with that modern haircut and a smile (though he looked fine in Joseon garb) and I am excited Park Ha finally remembered the truth about Sena. Now if only she conveys said truth to Princey.

Episodes 5 and 6 of TEM gave me shivers. This drama's cat-and-mouse game is more overt than that of Mawang but not any less tense, smart and satisfying. Jang Il is such an utter black hole of moral failure. I'd almost say that his being the way he is would be sufficient punishment, except the hell that he plunged Sun Woo into deserves a more bloody repayment.




Luckily Sun Woo agrees with me. The scene above was perfect. I love that he remembers every bit of what happened but is pretending not to - his cat and mouse with Jang Il keeps me on the edge of my seat (JI, btw, still clearly manifests that he'd have no second thoughts about committing another murder if he had to. In trying to kill Sun Woo, he also killed any hope of a worthy future for himself).



Ji Wan and Sun Woo are the sole ray of sunshine in the story and I ship them in part because of that, but also because I know how much it would devastate Jang Il. In your face, soulless psycho!

I haven't yet seen this week's ep but last week's ep 4 was brilliant. The large amount of time devoted to Jang Il's fear and almost a sociopath way of overcoming it (practicing his 'surprised face at friend's murder,' saying that he'll have everything he wants but will feel guilty for Sun Woo's death so that sound be enough) was wonderful - it felt organic to the story and fleshed out JI's character (even if that meant I know loathe every second I see him).




I am going to miss Lee Hyun Woo who did a marvelous job and I hope this is the start of a great career for him. But UTW took over as grown-up Sun Woo almost seamlessly - I can believe him the continuation of his teenage self - the hot-headedness, the fear under the bravado, the temper, the grit.



I still hate grown-up Jang Il but watching his suffer the torments of the damned as he tries to wriggle out of the evil act of his past will be fascinating.



Bring it on, drama!

In my not-so-humble opinion, TEM is the best drama airing right now (of the ones I've seen). Sure, I love K2H and enjoy Rooftop Prince, but TEM is just pretty much perfect (except for the soundtrack, which is toned down in ep 2 but still should be cut in half).

The performances are top-notch (especially from Lee Hyun Woo, who plays the younger version of Sun Woo, Uhm Tae Woong's character. That kid is going places) but even more interesting are the characters. I adore Sun Woo the way I don't often adore a character but I find Jang Il even more interesting, even if I don't like him much - take his crush on Ji Won - it is indubitable he's sincerely smitten, but he's smitten, in very large part, because she's an aspirational model - a rich young woman impeccably dressed and singing a song in English. It's not her, it's her status.

I am probably pushing similarities where they aren't, but in a way, Sun Woo and Jang Il remind me a bit of the protagonists of Mawang (my favorite drama of all time) - one is warm-hearted, immediate, prone to violence in just cause, and one a whip-smart, cold, calculating one who finds it hard to open up.

Only the roles have been somewhat reversed - in Mawang, it was the seemingly cold lawyer who was a wreck irreparably damaged by the horrific wrongs done to him and his family (and, in turn, made things only worse when he went for vengeance) and the warm-hearted cop was the perpetrator of the wrongs who has spent his life trying to right the past. Here, this is not the case - clearly, Sun Woo is the victim of the situation, doing everything, even some things that may damn his soul (the bargain offered by the Mob at the end of ep 2 was chilling) for a person whose father killed his (on orders of possibly SW's birth father? Eeeep, this is dark). And Jang Il's ambition and moral ambivalence are not a result of repeated horrific trauma as was the case with Joo Ji Hoon's character in Mawang - no, it's his hatred of poverty and desire for power, understandable but much less sympathetic.

Maybe it is more like Resurrection - I foresee Sun Woo going much darker once he finds out the truth - in Resurrection, Uhm Tae Woong's character morphed from a warm and loving man into a ruthless, ice-cold, terrifying carrier of vengeance who knew he was turning into a monster but could not stop. I wonder if his character here will experience the same trajectory.

Anyway, this is amazing, you should watch!

Finished Resurrection.

Excellent excellent excellent. It got rather dark by the end but I loved the hopeful ending (I nearly had a heart attack because for a while it looked like it was heading into Mawang-ending level trauma. Never again).

I loathed all the bad guys through to the end (felt bad for their dependents though).

Poor poor messed-up Haeun. Get better, woobie! The stuff with Haeun/Eunha (once she found out) was so ridiculously awesome and angsty and hot and comforty and perfect. When he is basically crying at her that he's not Haeun and she is so gentle and tells him if he says he isn't, he isn't and that's what breaks him? OMGSQUEE. And then all the adorableness after.

For a change of pace, next is finishing up Lawyers of Korea. I had some major problems with the male lead of that one but it looks funny so we'll see.

Am through ep 20 of Resurrection, with a lot of marathonning and selective fastworwarding. It's such a solid, well-written, well-acted drama even if it doesn't (IMO) approach Mawang's masterpiece status.

It is brutal to see what his complex revenge plot and using people for that plot is doing to Haeun, who started as one of the sweetest, sanest drama heroes ever. It's an interesting parallel/echo of Mawang - we meet Seung Ha, Mawang's avenger, once he's already been destroyed by revenge but with Haeun we slowly watch his fall. (There are other differences of course - Haeun did not have as long to dwell on vengeance and powerlessness and started from a much more stable place as he only discovered the need for vengeance when an adult and not a frightened hopeless boy. But perhaps that makes Haeun less excusable - he was a whole person when he started so he should have known better. Except I can see how he could not take it, could not let it go. And I can see he also did not have much choice - if not for his masquerade, the bad guys would have killed him without a second thought).

It hurts to see Haeun turn into this monster, this dark mess, and he knows his transformation and is horrified by it (biggest reason he is hiding from Eunha - he does not want her to see what he has become) but he can't and won't stop it.

Honestly, by now, I'd rather Eunha was with Jinwu (who is such a heart-breaking character. He is going to go down so badly in Haeun's revenge against his father, isn't he? Even though he is innocent and is actually a good person). I rather despise Haeun for what he is going to collaterally-damage do (knowingly) to Gangju, the intrepid girl reporter, and to Jinwu, and to Heesu the swindler and even to Haeun's former friend the cop. But at least the cop is in possession of all the facts and is free to choose. The others are not. It's despicable. It makes me want to stab Haeun. But then I see how tortured he is, how he literally is not sure of his own identity any more, how he tries to create outs for himself, and I just want to comfort him and send him to a shrink and make it all better.

But he is still not worthy of Eunha. Sane, good-hearted, strong, pure Eunha. Not any more.

I am in the middle of episode 7 of Resurrection and I really love it.

A few brief points:

1. I sincerely appreciate that Haeun does his angsting while shirtless. It is an artistic choice that I really approve of. I rewound one such bit for purely plotty reasons. Mmmm.

2. Haeun was adorable as the sweet-natured, forthright detective but as the angry, revenge-driven, his-dead-twin-impersonating, beyond messed up Haeun? My God. Ridiculously hot.

3. I do see the same themes of revenge and damnation that echo in Mawang. It's a little less tortured (at least so far) because the bad guys in this one are such awful people - I am rooting for them to die basically (as opposed to Mawang where some of revenge victims were horrors but some not so and the main target of revenge, due to passage of time, changed and was actually a better person than the avenger. Not to mention the whole action that had to be avenged was much less clear-cut). But you also see what it is doing to Haeun, the good-guy, well-adjusted-despite-it-all Haeun and you want it to stop. You just want him to go back to Eunha and have adorable dorky babies and not ever think of this stuff. But ultimately, he doesn't have much of a choice - if he went back as himself, the baddies would just order another murder and this time it won't be his twin who gets it (oh, I totally cried - I liked Shinhyeok - he was reserved but so happy to see his brother and so hopeful).

4. I adore Eunha. Just as in Mawang, it is the woman who is the beacon of sanity.

5. I do not adore Haeun's former friend. Die die die you weak-willed scum.

DIE DIE DIE WHY DON'T YOU DIE.

God, I hate the bad guys in Resurrection even more than I love the good guys.

Also, oh, poor poor Haeun. ((())).

You know, I can definitely see this as a predecessor to Mawang/The Devil in its themes but revenge here is, while corrosive, is a lot more desired and clear-cut. I wasn't cheering for Seung Ha's victims in Mawang to get it (even though I understood his motive and sympathized with him in some ways) but here I want to boil them in oil myself.

DIE DIE DIE DIE HORRID SCUM.

Man, this drama is so frelled up. In the best way.

You know a trainwreck is coming and you can't stop it and yet I want to take Haeun and EunHa and Eunha's Dad and Shinheyok and Shinkeyok's adorable reporter fiancee and relocate them all far far far away where they will be safe.

What is better than one Uhm Tae-Woong? Two Uhm Tae-Woongs.

You know a trainwreck is coming and you can't stop it and yet I want to take Haeun and EunHa and Eunha's Dad and Shinheyok and Shinkeyok's adorable reporter fiancee and relocate them all far far far away where they will be safe.

What is better than one Uhm Tae-Woong? Two Uhm Tae-Woongs.
