"Why do I suddenly have feelings for him, like the ones I do for Prince Kasaba?"

!!!! She has compared him to her favorite manga character. ROFLSQUEE. It's looooooooooooove.



Even more so than when he runs around the park at night in the rain to find her hiding in a pipe and he pulls her up and she just clutches him, crying and he just looks thunderstruck and sort of just stands there and then slowly puts his arm around her and rather prosaically tells her "let's get an umbrella." And then buys her dinner and fusses that she is eating too fast or that she went out in the rain when she had a cold recently. MMMMM.































Guys, you have no idea how ridiculously happy To Get Her makes me. Or how many times I've rewatched the scene of Momo in the pipe in the park and Mars coming to get her. *satiated shipper squee* They are such awesome adorable dorks! And he takes such good care of her despite denying that it's anything special to the death and, hey, it's only fair, because she took such good care of him earlier and helped him out. I love stories where the OTP are actually functional together and friends and good to and with each other - Taiwanese dramas are awesome at that.

Btw, have you any trouble with hotlinkers recently? My bandwidth is being eaten alive and it's not rainscene -- the only other thing I can think of are my Hanadan posts -- but you'd be hit by Hanadan hotlinkers worse than I would.

I don't seem to have trouble with hotlinkers - is it with your photobucket images?

Yeah. 70% of my bandwidth in a week. D:

That's crazy! Do you have paid photobucket? I do and never got into trouble bandwidthwise - if they are sucking 70% of paid photobucket stuff, that's insane. Also, I think your lj is way more popular than mine so it might have a lot more people hotlinking? I wonder if there is a way to trace where the hotlinking is.

I'm on a free account *cough* two, but that's usually enough for me (25gb a month). Someone must be hotlinking in a major way and it's driving me batty! I'm already at 18gb in a week!

I've been moving files like mad so hopefully there's a pissed-off hotlinker somewhere with a bunch of broken images.

I got about halfway through this last night - the subbed bits - and IT IS TOO CUTE!

He's all - "why didn't you just tell me?" and she's too shy and doesn't want to cause trouble... *swoon*

Did you get to the bra-shopping scene?! Or (my favorite) where she makes him breakfast and he gets mad that she isn't relying on him more?! <3

The bra shopping was so LOLtastic, with his wearing a mask and making his manager actually put the items in the basket and getting distracted by fast food.

And then he stayed with her in the house because she was afraid of the dark. Awwwww. Seriously, they are the cutest OTP I've seen in ages.

The breakfast scene was adorable and his getting mad at her wanting to go back to her house full of loansharks to get her Prince Kasaba stuff was total love.

And then she's all "But if I don't have him near me, I'll lose the feelings that Prince Casaba and I share..." and he keeps calling Prince Casaba the wrong names!! Hee! I can't wait to go home and finish this... :D

She is just such a total otaku! If they hook up, he better get ready to share their bedroom with about 150 Casaba figurines and posters :D Or maybe she'll make him cosplay. LOL.

I think that guy's really cute and I'm intrigued by his "former idol" status and trying to drum up popularity again.

Oh, [livejournal.com profile] dangermousie, you get me to watch the strangest things...

Date: 2009-03-16 05:49 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dangermousie.livejournal.com
It's very very quirky so not sure if you'll like it but I find it off-kilter adorable.

The extra amusing thing about this particular actor playing a washed out idol is that he is a member of boyband Farenheit, which is currently by far the hottest band in Taiwan and is just generally v.v. popular in Asia (when I was in Thailand last year, Farenheit-related pictures were everywhere).

Date: 2009-03-16 05:53 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] bzoppa.livejournal.com
But there is something intriguing about it. I like the otaku-nerd/washed up idol pairing idea. I think this in English would probably make me gag but there's still something appealing!

Date: 2009-03-16 05:55 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dangermousie.livejournal.com
I like it because both the protagonists are such gigantic yet adorable dorks.

I watch a lot of drama stuff which I'd be appealled to watch in English :)

It would be so awful made in "Hollywood," or somewhere American.

Actually, it would never be a scripted drama, would it? It would be an honest-to-god reality show.

Man, that really would be horrible. Eeeek.

I tried watching this on streaming and the quality was so bad, I couldn't really get into it.

From the bits I did see, I liked it. The pacing is quite different from what I'm used to in a TW drama, as is the musical selection. It's nice, laid back.

I have to say, I give props to Rainie Yang. As much as I love her and think she's adorable, she hasn't really impressed me with her acting. In this role though, I think she's ACES, and is able to portray her character with the right amount of vulnerability and strength. I like that while she's shy and doesn't like attention on herself, she still knows how to stick up for herself when she needs to.

When it gets subbed and officially uploaded, I'll def grab it and watch it in HD. :)

Date: 2009-03-16 05:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dangermousie.livejournal.com
I can't wait for it to get uploaded too, because I want shiny HD images - ep 5 on viikii is pretty good quality but it varies from ep to ep and can be spotty.

I keep liking Rainie more and more - I never got the fuss over Devil Beside You at all (it almost put me off both Rainie and Mike He for life) but I really liked her in Why Why Love and she is way better in TGH than she was in WWL.

Oh man, DBY was the first full drama I watched (my first was My Girl but I had to stop at Ep 7 or so because mysoju got wacky) so at first viewing I liked DBY.

Then after I watched a few more dramas, I decided that I did not like it and it was cliche'd and an insult to my feminine and artistic sensibilities (lol).

I'm currently doing a rewatch and I'm seeing it for what it really is. Cheesy crack. Cheesealicious crack. There's so many scenes where I'm dying of viewer/audience embarrassment but it's such crack crackity crack.

(Rainie did well on WWL also, but I am very impressed with her in this one. Oh and can I say that Jiro Wang, his body is amazing??!!? It looks small under those clothes but the first 10 minutes of the episode we got a nice shot of the chest and stomach, and I felt like a drooling fangirl even though I had no idea who he was.)

Date: 2009-03-16 07:54 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dangermousie.livejournal.com
Yes, this drama is good with the fanservice.

In DBY, I basically only ended up liking the secondary otp.

And oh my gosh, Rainie's English is so cute! I wasn't expecting it, but it was adorable.

I haven't watched it all w/ subs yet but I loved the part where Mars said something like of course I should help you because 1) you saved my life and 2) I saw you naked LOL! (well, that's what it seemed like he was saying anyway)
Such a cute show, I am sooo loving it too! Mars was so adorable taking care of Momo - giving her spending money, ordering her bento, buying her bra keke!

I wonder if Mars is going to learn that "famous" does not equal happiness/success. He's already willing to give up his contract to help Momo but it just seems like he views himself as a failure for not being famous like before. And from the previews, maybe he got that thinking from his Mom, idk. Argh, I need to watch it with subs before I start commenting! :) But it was a squeee-worthy episode. It'll be nice when they start depending on each other w/o hesitation... awwww sooo sweet.

That is basically what he said, which I thought was hilarious.

Re: his Mom. She was in that long long preview and didn't seem particularly nice. Ahhhh, drama parents!

Or how many times I've rewatched the scene of Momo in the pipe in the park and Mars coming to get her.

Wasn't it one of the most adorable scene EVER? Gosh, it as just perfect and the way they look at each other is just GUH.
Also my love for the manager knows no bound. He is so cute and faithful to his friendship with Mars ^^. The shopping was absolutely hilarious and when Mars picked the random clothes, the manager made the most wonderful poses \o/.
I watched the all episodes despite the lack of translation in the end and ASKJASKHAKDA!!!!!! The little video!!!

ToGetHer is so my new addiction ^^.

All seven parts have been translated now - but you have to get them from the main viikii TGH page, not by clinking next vid in the group - those are unsubbed for some reason.

You know what I loved even more than the pipe thing? When he took care of her when she was sick. I think I melted into a total puddle.

Oh thanks. I've rewatched it and I love even more now the manager ^^. Just too cute.

Argh, when he was watching if she had a fever by posing his hand on her face... you can't blame the girl for looking at him dreamily ^^.

I loved this week's episode ... they ticked off so many dorama cliches already ... a rain scene with hugging, hero piggybacking the heroine, awkward glances ... though I already here the music of doom in the background ...that scene with the camcorder ..him telling her into the camera he will become famous again I think we will see more of that particular footage in future episodes.
And gosh, Mars is such a dork (his audition vid).
I like that he is still in denial but even risks his career for Momo already. I loved the seen where he even can't deny the fact she is NOT his girl-friend :)

All the cliches were so very adorable - and I agree, in his own way, Mars is as much of a dork as Momo.

OMG! The bra buying! The bra buying!

I dont know what's cuter! Mars with Momo or Mars with Yi Zhi! I confes to laughing out loud when Yi Zhi referred to him as Xiao Ma Ge in the shop in a reference to a popular male actor in the 90-ies.
