dangermousie: (Capital Scandal sit by miss_dian)
Here is the newest, 5-min trailer and I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!!!!



I love that Joo Won plays someone who is an antihero (he is the officer for the Japanese!) and not a heroic avenger from the start - I love watching the slow (and I am sure painful) process of him transforming into someone good and someone who cares (you see glimpses of it when I think he recognizes the heroine as the girl he used to know and when he sees who the masked avenger really is). I love the aesthetic (one shot is totally Capital Scandal), I love that the heroine seems gutsy as hell, the secondary girl is an awesome assassin, and that Park Ki Woong gets to wield a badass sword. But, most importantly, I really do love that Joo Won starts the drama as a selfish collaborationist. That's...unusual, to say the least. And few actors can make me love their antagonists and root for them the way Joo Won does (the guy stole Baker King) and here he is both that and the hero. EEEE!

Is it me, or does it look vaguely cdramaish, btw? That is not a slam - I love period cdramas more than anything in the world.

Game of Thrones has a sex scene that does not involve either whores or rape and consists of two participants who have feelings for each other? The scene is actually...gasp...romantic?! Is the world about to end?!



I am not following GoT season 2 (in large part because of my issues with endless rape and treatment of women in s1) but this scene made me melt about 100 different ways and the whole idea of Robb/Talisa would almost make me change my mind about following this, except for the fact that in Martin's world, any character I remotely like (and they are hard enough to find in his singularly repellent world) ends up dying gruesomely while the bad guys prosper.

Talisa - not evil/not whore/not victim = dead
Robb - has honor/not rapist/idealistic = like Ned = dead.

No thanks.

Have a shippy MV though:
