I confess I redownloaded this ep just to watch the scene of Domyouji doing dogeza to Rui but I ended up watching the whole darn ep and capping like a madwoman.

Oh God, my OTP! My ridiculous, strong-willed, adorably dim, crazily energetic OTP! This is what jdrama did right and kdrama did wrong - this random ep shows it. I am so mad for Domyouji/Makino and I couldn't care less for JP/Jandi - you know why? D/M have tons of romantic scenes, they fit together perfectly (when Makino tells Rui she can be most herself with Domyouji, I actually buy it - she turns a bit demure with Rui but she is her own bulldozer self with Domyouji, not to mention the two just light up in the vicinity of each other, and feel more alive). Oh, and Domyouji actually acts like he can't live without Makino and the way he deals with Rui and the fiancee situation is so infinitely better! I don't hate him for one bit.

Anyone, I'll shut up and bring you caps from ep 8 of Hanadan2.

Emotionally fearless Makino:

The scene with Domyouji and Shigeru, the fiancee. Kdrama so needed something like this - I am not talking about the 'seduction' scene (though yes, that is a pivotal scene and for them to leave it out is insane), but the scene of Domyouji both desively rejecting her and not dragging it out and the major show of growth in his character where he realizes he was wrong and offers a full and absolute apology - someone who at the beginning of the story didn't even notice people. But loving someone made him learn and so he can understand how much Shigeru hurts. If JP showed 1/5 of the maturity Domyouji has here, I'd have so much less of a problem with him.

I love this Rui and Makino scene - for one, I never bought Rui and Makino as super compatible or Rui as over his ex and genuinely in love with Makino, and for another, Makino who is unmopey and straightforward!

The dogeza scene - one of my ultimate faves in the drama! Not the least because Domyouji is all pride but he has none when it comes to Makino - in S1 he was willing to be beaten to death without lifting a finger to defend himself to save her (and at that point he thought she cheated and she was also not interested at him at all). And here he is willing to abase himself utterly. Mmmmm.

Shippiness! You know, D and M are actually compatible. You know the word compatible, kdrama?

Heee! Flashback of awesomeness.

More awesome shippiness!

Oh God I so loved this episode! I loved Shigure and Doumyoji and Makino and Rui. I wanted to hate Shigure so much but I felt sorry for her in the end when Doumyoji went off with Makino.

Yup - I ended up sorry for her too. This is in the running for my fave ep (but won't win because ep 6 in s1, where he gets beaten up, is my fave).

i must seriously eat the words i said about Joon Pyo and Jan Di being my fav incarnates, cause for me, nothing beats these two.

i started rewatching hanadan 2 after episode 13, and i must admit, the kdrama doesn't get to me like jdrama did, and still does. it's so disappointing what with how BOF started in the beginning. i'm just hoping for a good ending on all parts for BOF.

I am hoping for it too!

The jdrama is so good at sucking me in!

I LOOOOVED when Domyoji bowed down to Rui! At first in HYD I was not too pleased with MatsuJun (btw, this displeasure lasted like, 2 episodes) because he initially was WAY too fierce and not enough dork. I'm SO glad he let his geek flag fly, because he turned awesome. Say what you will about Jun, but I think he's a pretty damn good actor.

And Mao-chan? Too cute for words. Did you ever see First Kiss? It was hilarious to see her in that role right after I watched HYD.

And Shun-kun!! I doubt I will ever love anyone as much as I love Rui. Shun is awesomeness personified.

Never watched FK - is it good?

Yeah, he was so dorky after all - I still randomly think of Hemmingyay and crack up.

I agree - I think Jun's the best of all the younger drama actors I've seen. Did you know he has a new one coming out - it's romantic and he is half-Philippino and she is deaf etc etc. Yessss.

It's... not the best thing I've ever seen, but it's cute enough. Mao is adorable (and totally plays the opposite of Tsukushi), Hiraoka Yuta is in there (and he's hot, so that's a plus). Oh, and there's disease drama!

HAHAHA!! Hemmingyay! I had forgotten that one! SO cute! I miss Domyoji's adorable word mixups!

No, I didn't know that! Half Philippino? Deafness? Sound totally bizarre and MADE OF WIN.

his new drama name is smile. It seems purely on human love story. same writer as hyd and utahime. the main girl is the girl from my boss my hero aragaki yui. i can't wait to see it, he hadn't been in a romance drama for 2 year.

Ah, Shigeru. How I hated you, and then felt bad for you. :flails:

Yup - that was me too. Loathing but then pity.

It was the same with Sakurako. "You're crazy!...but I think I like you anyway. o_O" XD

The one good thing about the horrid BOF is that it's making me appreciate the jdrama that much more!
