You know, [livejournal.com profile] ambergold was so right - BOF is like a bad relationship - you know the guy is no good for you but you keep coming back. I am so irritated with the drama by now, but I still check both the comms and soompi for spoilers, previews etc. And will be watching ep 20 as soon as it's on. Meanwhile, Preview for Boys Over Flowers ep 21:



Much as it's awesome to see Jun Pyo kneel to and beg Jaekyung to let him go, I refer to my previous Man Up post. You know, a wedding involves two people, right? Why beg the girl to call it off when you can freaking call it off yourself! Once again, borrowing from Hanadan2 with odd modifications does not work - in Hanadan2 it made sense for Domyouji to kneel to Rui and ask him to let go of courting Makino because Domyouji has no control whatsoever over what Rui does - he cannot do something unilaterally to stop Rui - he has to ask. Not to mention, Rui is his best friend and he wants to keep the friendship intact, and to go after Makino (who has indicated she is quite willing to be with Domyouji) without clearing it with Rui first, would definitely wreck the friendship. But the relationship with Jaekyung is different, uniquely so - it's a wedding and he has all the power in the world to end it himself. Neither Domoyuji in the manga or jdrama nor Dao Ming Si in the Taiwanese version had any hesitation in calling it off when they felt they couldn't deny their love for Makino (and it didn't go anywhere near close enough to the altar, either). So, MAN UP, Goo Jun Pyo! Seriously, man up.

Honestly, the only time I've seen something close to this was in Save the Last Dance kdrama, but it made sense there - the hero's company was going to be wrecked without the marriage (just as here), but the other girl was a childhood long-term friend, one of his best friends, who tried to kill herself because he wouldn't marry her, and the reason he begged her was not because he was afraid of consequences to himself/company but because what he really was begging was for her not to kill herself, because he could not obtain his happiness at the cost of her life. And even then, he wouldn't marry her until his OTP ditched him in a brutal, brutal fashion to save him. Ahem. Sorry for the sidetrack, I love StLD to bits.

Jun Pyo, go rent Return of the Condor Heroes and take notes - the dude in that one was willing to die a hideous slow agonizing death rather than betray his OTP by marrying someone else. Take notes until it sinks in. Kthanks, bye.

Side note: I can't even be bothered to be irritated that they turned the awesome Shigeru of the manga/twdrama and less awesome but ultimately not too bad Shigeru of the jdrama into the typically evil kdrama other woman - she knows her fiance loves someone else, yet she is happily planning her wedding asap and asking his OTP to be her bridesmaid on purpose, and when he begs her to call the wedding off, telling her he only loves Jandi and will only love Jandi, she is all "I know, it makes me want to marry you all the more". Heh. I've exhausted my ire on all the other character modifications and have none left for this :)

"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.

Caps from that scene )

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.

I am watching Kings right now (the new TV show which is a modern retelling of the story of David) and I have not fallen in love with a show this hard and this quickly in a very very long time - not since the Pilot of Veronica Mars.

It is so damn good.

Also, very very pretty.

I confess I have a bit of a thing for this David already, which only makes sense as I always loved him the best of all the individuals in the Bible.

Caps from the first 10 minutes or so, unspoilery )

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.
