You guys, I am so very pathetic I am not sure how to admit it.

After all my ranting about Jun Pyo and Jandi as an OTP (as in my displeasure at the way BOF is handling them), all it took is the shippy scenes in ep 20 and I am back on board that damn ship. GRRRR. I am so pathetic! (Side note: but it actually pisses me off more at the writer - Lee Min Ho and Goo Hye Sun have oodles of chemistry together and their interactions are always a highlight - if the writer did her damn job right, they should have used it and had a lot of OTP interactions in the last 7 eps or so, as opposed to barely any and wasting it all. All it takes is so little to get me on board, so how come the writer wasn't even doing that?)

And after watching this ep, I finally found a reason that makes sense to me for why Jandi should pick Jun Pyo - I still think he is rather passive and weak-willed in the second half, but who cares - for some weird reason Jandi can only be strong and assertive around/with him. Without him or without him around, she becomes a total wilting violet. And I like the former Jandi much better than the latter. It's a far cry from the original wonderfulness of Makino or Makino/Domyouji but I will take all I can get and maybe if I didn't know this was a Hanadan adaptation, I would have less problems with BOF so I will try very hard to forget it's Hanadan and view it as its own thing.

So yes, I am back on that ship - eeeeee. Am clearly weak-willed myself.

I haven't watched ep 19 and i have a feeling i should probably skip it and watch 20 'cos that's got the JP/JD goodies. Anything i'd miss if i did? I'm pushing myself through the pain that is ep19. It's possible the only thing getting me through it is the subber comments at the top at viikii which are always cracktastic. XD

And lol, it cracks me up how it only take like a couple of minutes of JP/JD being together for us to quickly running back to the ship. XD

I don't even remember what was in 19 - I think I blocked it out in self defense.

** cheers ** They did such a cute job with this usually so silly maid story.

** sigh ** Me- I think I am getting finally obsessed, with Yi Jung/Ga Eul. I am off to trail soompi for spoilers..

(jumping in because that's totally my comment)

It's totally that smile. I haven't seen him smile the way he did in that first scene when he demanded she make him ramen.

Heeeeeeeeee... I giggled all the way through scrolling down this post :D I am so with you on Jun Pyo / Jan Di. The last couple of eps had moments that annoyed me like hell but as you said, once we get some OTP-ness between them 2, I get butterflies in my stomach. And ditto again, re: the chemistry that Jan Di has with Jun Pyo is different to that with Ji Hoo. I can't wait for tomorrow's episode. I want to see Jun Pyo kneeling and begging to Jae Kyung to cancel the wedding. It's the freaking least thing he could do after all the crappiness he's made Jan Di endure :D

Now, if he gets around to begging Jandi, I would definitely cheer :D

When you figure why in the flying hell she's dressed up as maid, please tell me?

Date: 2009-03-18 04:37 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] dangermousie.livejournal.com
She ends up literally homeless, his sister takes her in, she insists on working for her keep...voila. She is his personal maid. I was actually full of feminist rage on that so going bipolar: half of me pissed-off and half 'but shippy cute!'

(In the original manga it's quite different - he hasn't ditched her, in fact he is still wooing her and she likes him but is in denial, and she ends up without a place to stay, he takes her home and the housekeeper who is a total kook insists she works to which he objects strenuously but she agrees because her temper is up and she gets pissed off. It's actually a cool storyline in the original but here because this guy ditched her? UGH).

Yay! Welcome back to the ship, we have missed you!

I have yet to watch 19 or 20, but now I'm all excited for them!! *fangirlish squeal!*

I love Yi Jung/Ga Eul! I wish someone would put together all their scenes so I could just watch them. I'm getting bored with the rest of the show....

i only went and watched the Jan Di/Joon Pyo moments for episode 20 (i totally glossed over everything else) and i'm very happy we finally get the otp together again. you are totally right about Jan Di's change when she has Joon Pyo around him. funny how in this adaptation Joon Pyo's got the opposite affect on Jan Di that Makino has on Doumyouji; while Doumyouji needs Makino to be civil and human, Jan Di needs Joon Pyo to get her moxy.

and Hye Sun and Min Ho's chemistry is getting wasted with the writing. more shippy moments for the next episode pls...

I think there needs to be wall to wall shipping in remaining eps to compensate.

Ha! Don't feel pathetic. I did the same rewatching bits from the first half -- fell in love with them all over again, even when I knew what was coming. They're irresistible. They have such great chemisty.

The first half was so good. What happened????? Did the writer hit her head on something afterwards?

haha, I knew you'd eventually come back to this ship... especially since you've supported them in all the other versions. I can't imagine someone that dedicated abandoning Makino/Domyouji forever... even with such crappy writing. ^_^

Having never seen BOF, I'm a little disappointed to hear (at least from your post) that Korean Makino isn't spunky like Japanese Makino. She's only strong around Korean Domyouji? That kind of makes me sad and takes away what I thought was truly awesome with HYD, that Makino was this girl that kicked ass and defended people who she thought needed defending. When I saw HYD, I though that was what Domyouji was so attracted to her for and thought that was the basis for her character.
Hearing that it may not be the case in the Korean adaptation, makes this drama look less and less like the HYD that I loved.

Gosh, thanks for reminding me why Domyouji fell for the awesome Makino in the first place! Even after they threw us a bone w/ some shippy Jandi/Junpyo scenes in this last episode I was still wondering that very thing...why, why is gorgeous but waffling Junpyo staring at Jandi with so much love? I thought that maybe I was just resentful of the mess they made since ep 11 but really it's just that this Makino is not so awesome to me... and really neither is this Domyouji. (Lee Min Ho = awesome)
Oh well, I haven't said anything new...but your comment really gave me some clarity/relief haha!

I'm finally caught up on this! Thank goodness they have Jandi and Jun Pyo interacting in almost enjoyable circumstances. It was getting ridiculous. I'd almost say it is too little too late, but because I've seen previous reincarnations I'm still rooting for them to be together. I can't help it.

Also, I was incredibly distracted by how tired Ji Hoo looked. DAMN. Let the boy sleep. Now that filming is over he can settle down for a nice coma.

And could Yi Jung be MORE of a flaming asshole. Geez. Ga Eul doesn't deserve that crap.

i know finally some much needed OTP moments!!!!!!!!!! since the second half of the series was seriously lacking in them that i was like Ji Hoo and Jan Di should just hook up.......... but eps 20 gave me hope that Jan Di and Joon Pyo are still it............

love the part where she was waking him up and she fell on top of him and his like can we just stay like this for five more minutes.............that was awesomeness even if i am hating the fact that he is such a pansy with the whole fiancee thing

I'll never leave the ship. NEVAH. Even though tptb are trying to ruin it for me.

I'm still stuck at episode 13, dude. Because they're so awesome but I'm not getting anything right now. And I know you love Ji Hoo but I just can't get behind that ship so it's like totally depressing to watch this crap. And to hear that it only gets worse with a taste of awesome shippy goodness here and there is just WHY BOF WHY?!? I WANT MY SHIP DAMN YOU. DON'T FUCKING RUIN THIS FOR ME.
