So, as far as I can tell, K.O. 3an Guo has four end-game OTP (five, if you count Lu Bu/Diao Chan which was an OTP but does not end well). Mmmmm.

Guan Yu/Diao Chan:



Faux Liu Bei/ Shan Xiang:



Zhou Yu/Xiao Qiao:



Sun Ce/Da Qiao (OMG, Jiro is guesting as Sun Ce????!!!!)



And I am not even getting into slash!

I have just finished ep 4 and am so addicted. Will post caps later. This drama swas made on $10 but it's hilarious and a wickedly clever riff on Three Kingdoms and shounen, but it also makes me care for the characters. Quite a feat.

I spent this morning investigating the "Three Kingdoms heroes become high school kids" thing that is K.O. 3an Guo. Yes, there are subs! DoReMii is subbing it. They have, so far, done 27 eps out of 50-something. (It's a multi-season drama because even by sticking them in high school, you can't possibly cram the story in less eps).

I have the first two eps ready to go, but I am sort of terrified to start. So I've been browsing youtube. Things I discovered thus:

1. Liu Bei is hot. My world is ending. This cannot be.

2. Also, he has an OTP with Shang Xiang who, for some weird reason, looks like a boy. I suppose they wanted to balance hot Liu Bei with unattractive Shang Xiang?

Have a MV of them:



3. They fight using guitars!!!! Their guitars have fighting powers and when they play them, the force defeats others. It's sort of like Scott Pilgrim on crack. So, basically, they can be emo teens playing in a band AND save the world at the same time. Is the Battle of Red Cliff a giant concert? Please? The fight scenes in general feel me with hilarity and glee:



4. Instead of kingdoms, you have high schools. Okaaaay.

5. There are a LOT of Zhou Yu/Xiao Qiao shippers, if youtube vids are anything to go by. Sadly, that storyline doesn't start until second season. Too bad, because the shippy vids on youtube are cuuuuute and I am not sure if I'll survive it to the second season. My brain is leaking out of my ears just from clips of this drama. But the OTP is cute:



It's been driving me nuts where I've seen Zhou Yu's actor before but dramawiki is not helpful. Oh, and Xiao Qiao apparently gets it on with Zhu Yun at one point?

6. They are all from another dimension. I'd say.

7. The whole thing looks as if it was done for $10, catering included.

I am not sure whether to clutch my head in horror or laugh. I have just discovered that K.O. 3an Guo, a twdrama the name of which I've seen here and there, is a modern-day high-school retelling of Three Kingdoms. Yes, Cao Cao, Liu Bei et al are now modern-day high-schoolers with supernatural powers duking it out for supremacy. Dong Zhuo is a (presumably evil) principal, who sends his adopted son to spy on principal of rival school who happens to be Diaochan's father (I sincerely hope they left the TK part about Diaochan becoming Dong Zhuo's concubine out of this version because - ewwwww). Oh, Guan Yu also has a thing for Diao Chan, and they eventually become an otp (!!!), but not above his loyalty to his sworn brother Liu Bei, who is massively hot (this seems to be the only version with a hot and tolerated-by-me Liu Bei, so there is a silver lining?). And Cao Cao is after Xiao Qiao who lurves Zhou Yu. Check out the relationship chart. And they all wear school uniforms. I am agog to find out how they present the battle of Red Cliff.

Oh my God.

OH MY GOD.

I...I...am not even sure what to say except the drugs involved in the scripting session must have been great.

Have a Zhou Yu/Xiao Qiao MV. I guarantee you have never thought of Zhou Yu this way before :P I confess to swooning all over the damn MV. Ummm. It's all my shippy kinks.



There is something incredibly awesome in it - it's as if someone's ff.net fanfic about famous-historical-figures-go-to-high-school got produced. I simply must see if this gem has subs.

I cannot wait.
