dangermousie: (BSG: Helo/Athena by lyssie)


Would you like to watch a fast-paced, sharp-witted romantic caper drama?

Do you like strong, competent, grown-up heroines (with an angsty backstory no less!) matching wits, trading quips, and swapping kisses with rogueish, intelligent men?

Do stories about catching crooks get you excited?

Do you want a cast of wonderful characters, all with their own interesting stories to tell?

Do sexy academics and tough police ladies turn you on?

Do you like your protagonists chasing antiques-stealers while wearing evening dress?

Do you want an OTP with sizzling chemistry which is allowed to be physical with each other? An OTP that progresses from dislike to best friends to love?

Do you want reasonable 'others' who do not behave like insane people but instead move on to find their own happiness?

How about a despicable villain, heartwarming family bonds, a hero who grows a soul and a heroine who grows a heart?

All that with very little angst.

If you want that, what are you doing not watching When It's At Night, one of the most overlooked gems of 2008, starring Kim Suna and Lee Dong Gun. She is an employee with bureau of antiquities, in charge of catching those stealing/smuggling national treasures. Super-efficient, super-focused, she is one tough lady. He is a celebrity art historian (and a very knowledgeable one), focused solely on his career under the facade of his likeable easy charm. Their paths cross not too happily but when he is retained as an advisor to her bureau, maybe they will see each other in a new light. It wouldn't be fun otherwise.

I watched WIAN's 17 eps in one sitting (literally) on a flight and I loved every minute.

Go watch. Now.

I've liked what I've seen of Tazza a lot so far (first two episodes) but have been a little too swamped with Kingdom of the Winds and East of Eden to catch up with the subbed eps 3 and 4 and to keep up with the drama as zealously as I would like but I have just got a major incentive to do so:

Incentive 1:



Incentive 2:



It's funny, all three dramas I am interested in this season, even if they are very different in basic stories and time-periods, involve protagonists giving into darkness for revenge and/or sheer survival, strong 'tarnished' (as opposed to conventionally pure or happy-cooky) women as heroines, and the twistedness and all-powerfulness of family bonds of brotherhood/parenthood, biological or assumed, and twisted out of their natural channels by the harshness of the world.

In other news, I never started When It's At Night (with Lee Dong Gun and Kim Sunah which aired earlier in the year) despite the deliciousness of it's premise, because it was picked up by BON Fansubs and they are notoriously slow (I was right. The drama finished months before and only 3 eps are subbed or look like they will ever be subbed) but seeing GIFs like the below makes me wish someone else would pick up the damn drama for subbing! I mean, it's LDG and KSA! They are both really popular! Argh.





More GIFs: All Kissing, All the Time )

Yes. They are secret agents who solve art crime. With their tongues, apparently.

This trailer for When It's At Night makes me giddy. Giddy.

In other news, this shippy MV for Gong-Chan and Yu-Rin from My Girl (one of the funniest, most heartbreaking, perfect dramas ever) makes me swoon like mad:



(and not just because GC is one of the rare drama guys who I think would be awesome to date in RL: pretty well-adjusted, a little reserved, and very kind). I need a rewatch.

Grrrrr. Daemul seems on the skids again, this time because both the leads have busy schedules and the delayed production might interfere with it so they might walk.

Curses, kdrama TPTB! Why do you tease me with the awesomeness of a gigolo hired to seduce the first female Korean President, only to take it away! *shakes fist*

Ultimately, I hope that whatever else, if the leads walk, they recast. Much as I would have adored to see Kwon Sang Woo in the role, they could get puppets, and I won't care. Why are my three most anticipated kdramas all delayed or in limbo? Am I a kdrama jinx? (The other two are (1) Four Seasons with Rain as a mercenary falling for a journalist, by the writer of MISA and A Love to Kill; and (2) Cain and Abel with So Ji Sub as an assassin whose brother becomes a cop. CaA is pretty much dead, but there is still hope for FS).

In happier news, poster for When It's at Night which starts next week. EEE!



I wish it was KST or WITHS2 subbing it, but it's BON who are good but slow, so I'll have to wait until all the subs are done because hanging for months would be awful. Still, the knowledge of it out there, flirty prof and 'old maid antiquities rescuer' will keep me happy :)

Seeing that [livejournal.com profile] filmi_girl did hers, here is my list of upcoming dramas I am interested in, for the early summer season. Now, I can’t say I would necessarily be watching all (or any) of them as they air as it’s not my thing, but will be following them to see if they should be watched once I have all of them. This is only for kdramas as I only learn about jdramas/twdramas once they start airing. (Also, I didn't put any dramas that are in the middle of airing already, even if I am interested, such as A Bittersweet Life, or ones that have months to go, like Daemul, but only if they just started or are about to start in June).

OK, here is a list of the upcoming kdramas I am excited by. There are so many. And a lot of them seem to promise awesome heroines and swashbucking heroes.

Enter here for multiple Robin Hoods, cross-dressing female painters, lady bodyguards, chefs, assassins, and swashbuckling academics )

Must make a list like this for jdramas and twdramas
