Nope, it's not a romance novel cover, it's a poster for the new SRK/Kareena movie. EEEEE! It helps that I am obsessed with seeing them together again.

Even though I haven't watched Protect the Boss past ep 6 (I liked it, but I wasn't obsessed thus it fell by the wayside, victim of my short attention span and huge viewing list), I confess to adoring reading the soompi thread. It must be the trainwreck lover in me because for the last few weeks, that thread has been one giant flame war between rabid Jaejoong fangirls and Jaejoong antis who think he's ugly/bad at acting/has too much screentime/whatever.

Since I have no stakes in that particular contest - I like PtB but am not attached to it in the least, I think JJ is good-looking (if too much like a Korean Robert Pattison for my tastes) but I am not particularly attracted to him, and I think he is a mediocre actor who is, at least, not unbearably stiff. So I just have spectator entertainment. Even if I will never understand the defense 'he/she is new at acting, so give him some slack.' WTF? A person should be qualified for the job he or she is doing. If I go to a restaurant and get a bad meal or buy a table that falls apart asap, I severely doubt 'oh, the chef is new' or 'this is the carpenter's first table' is going to excuse it. Also, the fight over whether JJ has more screentime than Ji Sung (no idea, as not watching) is very entertaining. On general principles, Team Ji Sung though, because I've loved watching that man for years :P

I am HORRIBLY behind with Warrior Baek Dong Soo - I believe I haven't seen past ep 10. I like the drama, and it's certainly pretty and well-acted, but I think it never crossed into love for me because I am not emotionally attached to any of the characters, though I like a lot of them and find most of them interesting (more so the old generation than the new). Plus, it seems to be headed into the direction of Dong Soo/Ji Sun and while I don't hate that pairing or anything, I find it the least interesting one of all possible realistic combinations. It doesn't help that I like Ji Sun better on paper than as we see her - I think the actress is having a hard time portraying this very contained, intraverted character. I keep wondering what is off with Dong Soo to prefer her to Jin Ju.

And last random note - I find it funny that I like dramas where relationships and life overall is not one I'd want in a million years and be largely indifferent to those which portray life/relationships I might like for myself. I mean, my favorite airing drama is The Princess' Man and I think one might very well be better dead than have the life either of the protagonists has and to call their relationship a trainwreck is using too kind a term.

Seriously, I have no idea what cranky pills I was on when I initially checked out My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho because this drama is such a sweet darling darling darling darling and, I swear, disliking it is like kicking a puppy.

I mean, I present this scene from the end of ep 5:








How are they not the most adorable, awesome thing ever? Mi Ho is a huge girlcrush and I want to take her out and feed her all the beef ribs her fox self desires. She is so forthright and odd and alien and WONDERFUL! And Dae Woong is growing up so by leaps and bounds and you can just tell some time soon he will be awesome enough to deserve someone as !!!! as Mi Ho. I think the casting is really good with this drama - Shin Minah is not just gorgeous, she is someone I adored in everything I've seen her in - she can do loveable off-kilter in her sleep. And while I don't find Lee Seung Gi my cup of soju as far as looks go, he has this immense likeability no matter what - it worked in Brilliant Legacy and it works here.

Also, fox hunter guy, a.k.a. No Min Woo, is wooden as a tree here (he was amazing in Buhwal so I am glad he is a quick leaner) but oh boy is he pretty!



And final note! EEEEK! He neglected to tell Mi Ho that if Dae Woong holds on to her bead for 100 days, she will become human but he will die! DO NOT WANT!!!! Do not mess with my adorable (as yet, not really a) couple, drama!

I rest my case.

But not really because I want to post more cute caps.

Mi Ho: "Let's Mate!"



Woong's reaction:



Also, there was this, where he wanted to call her bluff on it only she started groping him. Bwahahaha.




I swear, this conversation went pretty much like this.

Woong: So, did you ever want to eat me?
Mi Ho: Ummmm...
Woong: Like, did you ever think "Woong looks tasty."
Mi Ho: Ummm. Once.
Woong: !!!
Mi Ho: Well...actually...twice.
Woong: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mi Ho: You SAID you will be understanding!
Me: bwahahahahahahahha



Also, this, he got her a stuffed pillow drumstick! Why are you cuter than puppies and rainbows, people?



This pretty much proves that Hong Sisters' dramas work much better for me when I can watch them in one fell swoop rather than on a weekly basis - it flows better and enables me to get past the beginning couple eps better (I find that most of the time, even if I end up liking their dramas a lot, the first few eps are usually the weakest). Also, I must stay away from the fandom in order to enjoy these because rabid, frothing at the mouth fangirls make the whole thing off-putting.

I conclude:



Still could do without Woong's aunt and the action director. But the beauty of marathonning is I can just skip their scenes.
