Oh, why did I stop with Ojakgyo Brothers on ep 36? I am so glad I continued because if I hadn't, I would have missed one of the most perfect shippy tender wonderful moments ever.

Mutual comfort, romantic confessions, hugs, and wonderfulness )

Btw, I am getting the sense the drama wants me to feel mildly sorry for Tae Hee's dead Mom, but sorry, not buying, she was a horrible horrible woman to ditch Tae Hee forever. Ooooopsies, lady, guess what, you don't get takebacks from that sort of thing.

Five minutes into Bridal Mask and !!!!!!!! It is everything I ever wanted and more!

!!!!!

Thank you thank you drama gods!

Proper post with thoughts and caps coming once I finish the ep, but for now, all I want to say is the things I want to do to Evil Joo Won, sitting ramrod-straight on his enormous horse and bellowing orders, while in uniform...well...better not go there.

;)

I confess despite my love for the screenwriter and the cast, I only checked out A Gentleman's Dignity due to boredom. Dramas about 30+/40+ singles interest me about as little as romcoms do, which is not at all. So it was a bit shocking to discover just how much I enjoyed the first two breezy episodes, and how down I felt when I realized I had to wait for the weekend for another dose.

The story is nothing new but the charm is in the execution - the snappy dialogue and the vastly experienced cast turn things that often annoy me into yet another thing to enjoy - I can easily see Jang Dong Gun's and Kim Ha Neul's characters, for example, being grating in other hands. But as it is, Jang Dong Gun is a combo of charming, irritating, and intense in one very alluring package. And Kim Ha Neul takes a trope that normally drives me up the wall, and makes me love her scattered, talks-to-herself, indomitable character. It helps that JDG is smitten at first sight (even if he shows it the way a fifth grader would) while she couldn't care less about the picky weirdo.

Of course, I can understand why not everyone is smitten. What I find quirky and charming, others may find overly precious. But then I've loved everything by this writer so far - Lovers, On Air, City Hall, Secret Garden. I really think the red string scene in episode 1 is a great litmus test.








If you find it contrived and teeth-on-edge, you should skip this drama. If, like me, you find it romantic and funny and cute and off-beat, this is likely to be a drama for you.

I don't know how much my honeymoon with AGD will continue. A lot of times, those breezy light dramas lose me before the halfway mark because I crave drama and angst. But for now, I am fully on board. Bring it on, you smart, snappy, funny darling, you! And I am not just referring to Jang Dong Gun :)
