dangermousie: (Gloria - JJ by timescout)

Oooooooh. Finally! YESSSSSS! Jin Jin learns the truth about Creepy and her family tragedy. I feel bad for darling Kang Suk, who is going to get his heart totally mangled, but OTOH, I cannt wait for her to go freaking terminator on Creepy's ass and take him apart piece by piece.

It's on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wooooooooooooo!!!! My cash is on Jin Jin!

(You know, I love how in Gloria events logically follow - Creepy is a horrible person so finally things catch up with him - you can get away with something once or twice but if you keep screwing people over, you are going to mess with the wrong person eventually. None of this would have happened if Creepy wasn't feeling piqued because Yoon Seo ran off and thus scotched Kang Suk and Jin Jin getting married out of pure spite. Because that let to JJoo talking to Grandma and Grandma planning revenge, which lead to Creepy's panic and attempt to kill JJoo, which is when backstory came out and now he is doing DOWN so hard!)

I love it when they fight. Mmmm, angst. Especially when the uber-reserved Kang Suk is so emotionally naked with her. And I love how JJ manages to hold it in just until he leaves. (She is scarily strong).

I really liked this scene because, yes, I feel bad for KS, but I love how good his relationship with his Mom is now and also she hugged him! I remember what he said back in 20s about how he never showed him affection because she knew she'd have to give him away.

That's after they get back together (after the kneeling scene)

So adorable!

Let's not forget my other OTP.

Bae Doona killed me in the end of that fight scene you mentioned. She stood her ground and was so strong but watching her after he left, you can see her face crumble and all the emotions just come flooding out. Within only a few seconds she went from being so emotionless and telling KS to hate her to looking completely destroyed.
BTW, longtime lurker here and I only started watching Gloria based on your posts on it. Now I'm addicted to the amazing-ness! Longest drama I've ever watched but so worth it!

Hi! Thanks for delurking!

And yes - that scene was amazing - she is so good at portraying both strength and the hidden fragility.

I'm really glad JS is about to get what's coming to him. Like you said, it was only a matter of time. He doesn't really seem to be the sharpest tool in the shed, if you know what I mean. The grandma bent on revenge is about a trillion times smarter than he or anyone else on the show and you know she's gonna take her revenge slowly to make him feel as much pain as she can. I kind of love that lady.

Oh there's a scene with Jin Jin coming in I think the latest subbed episode which was just !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. It wasn't a shippy scene, so it's not about that. It was basically her standing up to JS in a way that made me want to highfive her like a million times. I hope that's vague enough to be nonspoilery.

You know what? I kinda hoped that DH had not interfered. Because then KS would have totally lost his cool and FINALLY kicked the every-living shit out of Creepy. Who so totally deserves it. Because you know that KS can do it. He was Mr Fight K'lub after all. Hope THAT's vague enough to be nonspoilery, too!

That would have been super super fun. Mmmmm.

I love that this drama has a reason that its businessman hero knows how to fight and not just taking it out of nowhere.

I loved the smackdown.

And yes, JS is not that bright - it's just pure luck he hasn't been taken down yet.

WASN'T IT GLORIOUS?! Jin jin may have her flaws, but damn, weakness is not one of them. Only an idiot would underestimate her, which, of course, is why JS does it.

JS-I absolutely loved the scene where YS's dad was talking to him after YS announced her marriage to DA. After everything was falling around JS, the old an was like, "Well, I could tolerate you when you were about to be my future son in law. Now that there's no connection there, too bad, but I don't hire incompetent morons." Well, I'm paraphrasing, but it was still hilarious.

I still love the old grandmother with a fiery passion because she just came in, saw the obvious solutions to all these problems, and set about tearing down JS one figurative bitch slap at a time.

I know - YS' dad may be evil but he's no fool and he can see Creepy is useless

I will say this...don't be so liberal with your drama temptations, okay. As of right now, I'm failing three of my classes and while I blame myself...It's your fault too!!! Look, I was minding my own business and then i mistakenly came across your site. Now i stalk it like a crazy person and even leave comments!Gasp! I never do that! Plus you turn me on to these wonderful dramas that make me lose my social life(not that I had one to begin with) Give me my life back!!!
Speaking of life, is there life after Gloria?

Does The Monkey King count as a period drama? Because that's the only chinese drama of that kind that I've watched. Of course, you're tempting me to check out out the Yang Clan and Four Women Conflict even though I'm pretty sure I know better than to get within an inch of those angst-ridden work of arts. The whole year after I watched Love Contract was spent in horrible daze. Yes, I said a year and I mean a full year. I am extremely easily depressed. Even the description of tragic dramas make me depressed.

It counts :)

If you want, I can rec period cdramas with happy endings. They do exist :)

Really. Forgive my doubt. What's the happiest period cdrama you've ever watched? I'll check that out.

Jade Palace Lock Heart (otherwise known as Palace - this is the title it goes under on viki.com. Withs2 is subbing too, under proper title).


It's basically a period Hana Yori Dango, with the heroine accidentally travelling through time to end up in the last days of Kang Xi's reign - she knows what follows is a civil war bloodbath between some of his kids as to who will inherit.

She ends up as a maid in the palace, and she has a big crush on Fourth Prince, who historically becomes the next emperor. But Eighth Prince falls madly in love with her - a problem being he lost the struggle and ended up dying in a gruesome fashion in prison. She ends up in a love triangle. Her OTP is Eight, of course, and they are very Makino/Domyouji, but since it's time travel, it ends up happily for them both - he goes to her time etc etc etc.

It's beyond adorable and the tone is fairly light throughout though there are some angsty bits.

Yay! Did you like? *anxious*

If you need more recs, Return of the Condor Heroes 2006 and Legend of Condor Heroes 2008 both end well. So does Romantic Red Rouge, set in turn of century. Let me know if you need more info on any of them.

I've downloaded the opening theme song which I hear was sang by Four. What do you think about whether or not I liked it? I'm waiting impatiently till a lot more eps has been subbed and then I'll binge on it. I'll probably wait till spring break since I'm pretty sure I'll overdose on happiness and need hospital care.
