dangermousie: (Young Warriors of the Yang Clan - Four)
I put Alec Su's and Chae Rim's Warriors of Yang Clan aside after two eps, even though I loved it, because I was in cdrama overload at the time and because I couldn't find any subbed eps past ep 25 and this is a 36-ep drama. But the overload is gone and I found eps 26-36 on youtube (to download though keepvid. Though if anyone else knows anywhere else I can get it, please let me know) so on with the show!



And am now, on ep 3, wondering why on earth I ever stopped! This is an OTP designed for Mousie's heart expressly because basically they flirt through battling each other with swords and spears!




Seriously, you cannot tell me this isn't foreplay. Just look at them:




And this is how they look AFTER the fight.



For those who have no idea, btw, Warriors is pretty much a love story between Yang Si Lang, a member of a legendary fighting dynasty and possibly the unluckiest Yang brother ever (and that's quite a competition) and Pan Yu Yan, the rebellious daughter of the super-evil Prime Minister, who has it in for the Yangs. So yes, their families are sworn enemies ON TOP of the fact that he's the famous Fourth Brother who, as per legend, gets captured in battle against evil enemies who killed his family and gets amnesia, forgets who he is, gets a new identity and joins them. Can you say AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGST!!!! At least this one has a sort-of happy ending, unlike the misery fest that was Young Warriors, from which I am still scarred.

Anyway, enjoy the cuteness, OTP. The angst monster will come for you soon enough. It's funny, because normally I find Alec Su as attractive as a piece of toast, but he's RAWR here, with the long hair and the Yang family name, and the sword/spear/every-other-weapon-known-to-man skills. And Chae Rim usually is blandly OK with me but here I adore her.

I think my obsession with the upcoming Chu-Han Contention (楚汉传奇) has reached truly pathetic levels - I am trolling Google images for pics while not being able to read any Chinese. Still, I did find these:








ARGH! Is it 2013 or whatever ridiculous year in the future they are going to air this in, yet?

dangermousie: (Veer-Zaara)
I have just started Mausam, a Bollywood love story which stars Shahid Kapoor as a Sikh guy and Sonam Kapoor as a Muslim girl who fall in love. I've seen Veer-Zaara, I know how badly it can go.

But I think I fell in love with the movie from this instant, her giggling behind her veil at his mud-splattered face.





Please don't break my heart. I am still dehydrated from my hysterics over Veer-Zaara, all those years ago.

To say that the things I've heard about the new adaptation of Huan Zhu Ge Ge were mixed, would be an understatement.

Still, I have a craving for a period cdrama that won't leave me suicidal (especially since am watching Warriors), BBJX and Gong left me with fondness for Qing Dynasty milieu, and this MV was very pretty:



So yes, the story of two best friends, one an illegitimate daughter of the Emperor and one an adventuress, and their adventures, seemed like the ticket.

Hmmm.

One ep in, I don't hate it or anything, and it's certainly very pretty, but I couldn't care if every character spontaneously combusted. My emotional hook is currently nil. I'll give it a couple eps but I wonder if I simply cannot appreciate a period drama without doom and gloom?

Four episodes in, and the OTP has progressed to investigating murders together.




While holding hands and walking in-step. Crime-fighting FTW!



Also, it has just occurred to me that Chae Rim is supposed to be successfully masquerading as a man. Despite the bust and makeup. Ahahahahhahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!



It makes me think of Damo where I didn't even get she was cross-dressing and everyone thought she was a man, and was puzzled for eps and eps. Poor Si Lang, vision problems must be horrid!



Also, have a MV:
