Yeah, judgmental 'best friend', why don't you go die in a fire? Seriously, you see the lady you consider your best friend being mauled by a guy and automatically assume she's committing adultery and won't listen to her explanations and decide she's the worst evilest blah blah blah.

First, even if she has been, she's your friend! She comes first, ahead of some man you barely know. Second, listen to her freaking explanation, witch! And then she tells it to childhood love so of course he misunderstands. Ugh, witch. And childhood love goes and tells heroine how disappointed and ashamed he is in her blah blah he's not her friend any more and that now he can't blame her husband for beating her. Ugh, prig, go die! How about you trust her or listen to her explanation or stop freaking judging her? You and former best friend deserve each other - go hook up and preach at each other noon and night. Yeah, and then they learn the truth and are very sorry and are also so sorry she was so depressed and abandoned by her friends she tried to kill herself. Whatever, freaks, I hope you roast in hell. I am glad you never get her, childhood love, because you suck! And her best friend sucks worse! I love watching her pine for childhood love who is only fixated on Lanyun.

And then childhood love promises to get her a divorce and marry her (rapist has been disposed of by that point) but when her disgusting husband, who beat her and let her get raped, was all "but I loooove her, can I have her?" he just bailed. Ugh, first love, you really suck. There are no words for your sucktitude.

Oh God, I basically hate everyone in this drama except for heroine and Playboy, who asked her to marry him, again (because he assumed she turned him down earlier due to not wanting to deal with rapist's potential rampage and now the man is gone), got his heart crushed to bits when she told him she loved someone else, and took it like a man, wishing her a happy life and leaving her the hell alone, like she wanted.

Also, seriously, whoever made this has some sort of a whipping fetish. Heroine has already been whipped twice and from vids, Playboy gets whipped at some point too. At least they keep their clothes on? That's a small mercy?

Man, this is written by someone with issues. Honestly, I am enjoying this but all that unending heaping of misery on heroine has basically made me detach and numb for my own self-preservation because it's so over-the-top. I mean, past a certain point, it just makes you suspend disbelief that the character isn't just sitting in the corner rocking back and forth and banging her head on the wall (same reaction I got with Ou Chen in Summer Desire - past a certain point you just can't believe a character will go on being functional). I understand that they have to make her married life hell to justify her committing adultery (even emotional adultery) due to societal mores deciding what is acceptable for the heroine and what is not but still - tone it down.

I am glad the rapist has got punished though and became an imbecile. OK, that sentence basically encapsulates the awesome, glorious, addictive awfulness of this drama. Now I know how [livejournal.com profile] lesbiassparrow felt when she watched Stairway to Heaven - I feel dirty yet I cannot stop.

dangermousie: (Romantic princess kiss by lolanicon)


First, to cheer self up after angst in ep 21 of Young Warriors of the Yang Clan, here are almost exclusively happy caps from eps 19/20/21 )

And speaking of Yang brothers, since I am the type of person who likes to retread things until they are dead and skeletal, I plan to check out Warriors of the Yang Clan (not to be confused with YWotYC), the twdrama starring Alec Su and Chae Rim and focusing almost exclusively on Four and his OTP, who in this version is Minister Pan's daughter (!!!!). I was browsing youtube for clips to get a better feel and found this. brb, loling (and swooning just a bit) forever.



I guess the importation of Chae Rim meant they simply had to have the infamous 'kdrama shower scene' or as close as they could get to it in a period cdrama. My interest = peaked. LOL. Though I have to admit Alec Su is very "neutral" for me - I don't find him sexy but I don't find him unattractive either. So it will all depend on how I like his character. Seeing his tendency to take baths with ladies nearby, I'll probably like him a lot :P

last but not least, finall found the gorgeous ending theme for Jade Palace Lock Heart. So good! Both the song and the clips they picked.

it is behind the cut )

dangermousie: (JPLH otp)
I am a little behind on Jade Palace Lock Heart (OK, a lot behind) due to my obsessive Yang Warriors/Three Kingdoms binge, but I plan to remedy it directly. I just want to save up a number of eps to binge on and am tempted to wait for withs2 high-quality raws to watch them with.

But JPLH is not the only game in town this year when it comes to time-travelling ladies hooking up with Kang Xi's kids. The other contender is the artsy, serious Bu Bu Jiang Xin (well, as artsy and serious as you can get when you are based on an internet novel), starring Mousie's girlcrush Liu Shi Shi as the heroine, Nicky Wu as Fourth Prince (later emperor) and Kevin Cheng as Eighth Prince.

See English-subbed trailer below (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cha_maeri for the heads-up):



If you are, like me, watching and obsessing over JPLH, you have to throw out any JPLH-inspired ideas before approaching BBJX. Despite the similar set-up (lady timetraveller ends up in last years of Kang Xi's reign and gets into a love triangle with Four and Eight), the two stories are vastly different in tone and character interactions. For one, it's not Eight but Four who is the heroine's OTP in this one (though from what I've read he's no bunch of sunshine in this either), but for another this one is supposed to be tragic and grim. It will undoubtedly be more historically accurate in feel (insofar as anything time-travel related can be historical) than JPLH, which is basically a period Hana Yori Dango. I happen to adore Hanadan to bits and love period dramas, so a period Hanadan is about as close to a perfect drama as I can get. But I know Hanadan isn't everyone's cup of tea and this may be more your thing. It is, however, likely not a drama for me.

It all looks very pretty but I don't know - I am spoiled for the novel's plot and it really doesn't seem like my thing. Plus, on a shallow note, Nicky Wu is the male lead and I agree with [livejournal.com profile] cha_maeri, he is a good-looking guy normally but he simply cannot carry off the Qing hairstyle the way Feng Shao Feng in JPLH or even his costar Keven Cheng in this one do (well, as much as anyone can, that is).

But we'll see. You know I can't stay away from period cdramas even if they lack Hu Ge, Huang Xiaoming or Peter Ho, so I'll likely check this one out.

And one last comment - ladies, if you must time-travel, please please travel to the Qin or Han times, or even Tang or Song. Go to the Warring States era or the 1920s or most any other time period. I don't care, anywhere but the Qing. The hairstyles are so much better!

dangermousie: (Gloria - KS/JJ dressed up by timescout)
As you can tell by this LJ becoming cdrama central lately, no kdramas have been grabbing me this year, except for New Tales of the Gisaeng. However, a new crop is about to be out and hopefully this is about to change. In addition to Crime Squad, which I am very excited for and posted a trailer to earlier, these are the upcoming "Big Three" I plan to check out. Have the trailers.

Royal Family - family machinations, younger man-older woman (she helped raise him from the slums and now he's going to help her in his turn), and my huge fave Ji Sung. The trailer double-conforms my interest and made me want to do grabby hands at the screen. It looks pretty, intense, and shippy.



Thorn Birds - this one feels like a flashback to older melodramas and, luckily for me, I adore those. It seems intense and dysfunctional-passionate and has the cast I like the most of all the upcoming dramas - I've been dying to see Joo Sang Wook as the lead since he stole the show in Giant (and clearly the makers know what fangirls want - there is a shirtless scene in the trailer itself!), I love Han He Jin and Seo Do Young and Kim Min Jung. Bring it on!



49 Days - the most intriguing one of the bunch, about a young woman whose spirit must find three unrelated to her people to shed tears for her within the 49 day period or she will never wake up from the coma she is in. Lee Yo Won plays the woman whose body is taken over by the spirit, Jo Hyun Jae is the male lead (not sure how he comes in), Bae Soo Bin is the almost-dead girl's fiance, and Jung Il Woo is the grim reaper.

I am catching up on my New Tales of the Gisaeng backlog, am barely twenty minutes into ep 7 and I have just died.

Because Damo just sent Saran an enormous bouquet and signed it this way.



For some reason, this way of signing really got me (it is a reference to his name - his name is Ah Damo = Adamo = Salvatore Adamo = singer of Tombe la Neige). I love even more that this is the first thing he did after telling freakshow RaRa he was not interested in her and doesn't want to date her. I love him because he is so very very blunt and doesn't play games.




Kdramas just haven't been grabbing me this year much - I have been watching mainly cdramas and twdramas. But New Tales of the Gisaeng has, so far, been the sole exception. Love it to bits.

As a bonus, have Salvatore Adamo sing "Tombe la Neige":



Off to binge more...

But not before leaving one of my favorite French songs here, even if it has nothing to do with Gisaeng.

We are less than a minute into the first episode and we see the hero and the heroine do this:








That's more action than kdramas get all year, all put together.

This is pretty tame compared to enter for youtube goodness from other twdramas )

But still. I've been watching too many kdramas and thus found my eyes get o_O.

Anyway, pervy fun aside, the first ep is adorable. It's cute and funny and shippy. I liked Janine Chang in Black & White and I am a huge fan of Mike He - he's not the world's greatest actor, but he's good-looking, charismatic, and has scorching chemistry with his leading ladies. Fun fun fun.

As of now, I am actively watching 7 dramas - this, 3 Kingdoms, Jade Palace Lock Heart, The Holy Pearl, Endless Love, Young Warriors of the Yang Clan, and New Tales of the Gisaeng. Only one of these is non-Chinese/Taiwanese. It makes me feel like old times - Taiwanese dramas were my gateway drug after all.

And we have a winner in "Mousie's next period cdrama" sweepstakes. I actually already started this evening because (a) Jade Palace Lock Heart is still being actively subbed and I need a binge drama as well and (b) I find myself reluctant to move on from ep 10 of Three Kingdoms. I am really happy with where the characters currently are but I know they won't stay that way for long and seeing how psycho I went earlier, I need a little break before I go for bout n2. Plus, 3K is such a smart drama I need to stay fully focused and alert when I watch it but Yang Clan I can watch even when more exhausted.

But out of that huge list of potential cdramas, why Yang Clan? Well, here are my ten reasons.

1. Out of all the ones on the list, it's one of the few I already started but it's also the one I was most episodes into (10 to be exact - I restarted with ep 11).

2. My biggest cdrama crush, Hu Ge, plays one of the main characters, and he's awesome, and his OTP is awesome and *gasp* he gets a happy ending!

How could you not ship them - proof )

3. There is underwater kissing. here )

4. It's a historical drama, not wuxia/fantasy. I happen to love the latter, but my true passion is the former. Plus, it's a period about which I haven't watched many dramas.

5. I honestly do love the Yang family - especially Yang Papa and Yang Mama. But all the brothers are great and the little sister is wonderful and everyone's OTPs rock and the siblings and parents care for each other.

6. Yuan Hong playing a charismatic baddie (though, sorry, I still want to murder him for kidnapping a child. But he's an interesting character, despite the bizarre fur hat).

7. Three Kingdoms gave me a raging crush on Peter Ho. Guess who plays the abandoned Fourth Brother and has an OTP with my cdrama favorite, Liu Shi Shi. (Though, if I am honest, the outcome of his storyline was a large part of what kept me from this drama - I just found it creepy and wrong as hell. I'd prefer death of either/both party(ies), tbh. Oh well, I had time to get used to it.) Have a pretty shippy MV:



8. Did I mention the gorgeous and awesome Liu Shi Shi?

9. Tough women. Yang Mama is awesome and scary. The OTPs of Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh brothers are awesome too. Even the Yang little sister is smart and tough and awesome and she's eight!

10. There are a lot of happy episodes. True, they are probably there to shove the knife in deeper when horrible things happen, but it's a period cdrama, I'll take what I can get.

So here we are :) Just finished ep 11, ep 12 here I come!
