1. Is I Need Romance 2 worth checking out? I love Lee Jin Wook and Jung Yumi, but I already have a full slate plus the original INR was not anything that appealed to me, and I am generally very picky about my romcoms (A Gentleman's Dignity is the first one I loved in years).

2. So, I saw some spoilery caps for upcoming eps of Bridal Mask and there is a shot of Mok Dan in the torture chamber with Kang To and Shunji (who are not being tortured, obviously). Now, that is very little to go on, but I bet Shunji ordered her tortured for information on Gaksital. If that is so, I think this highlights a fundamental difference between Shunji and Kang To at their darkest. When KT had Mok Dan 'questioned,' she was nobody to him. If Shunji does the same, she is the woman he supposedly loves. While it is in no way excusable for Kang To to be brutal to strangers, it does highlight the gradations in his character back then - even though he may not care for random people, he does care fiercely for those he loves - he is horrified when he finds out who she is and after that it's clear that, despite all his talk, he would not be able to harm a hair on her head. But with Shunji, at the time this happens, she is about as close to most important person as you can get - she is supposedly his true love. And yet he is having her tortured. If he is capable of doing it to someone he loves, it is a whole other level of chilling. How ironic, after all of Kang To's talk about being able to kill the person he loves, yet being utterly incapable of it, and all of Shunji's horror at the possibility of even small mistreatment of a loved one, and then having her tortured. Of course, this is pure speculation. For all I know, Kimura ordered this and both guys are rescuing her. But what is life without speculating.

3. Anybody watching Beloved? Is it any good? I am very fond of Kim Min Joon.

I confess that when news of INR2012 came out, I had zero interest. Its thematic predecessor, INR2011, pretty much took everything I dislike in dramas and stuck it in one package. Chances of my considering INR2012 would have been nil, however the flisties raved, except for the fact that the makers cast Lee Jin Wook and Jung Yu Mi as the leads. I am a ridiculous fangirl for LJW, who not only does something funny to my hormones, but who also was the lead in one of my all-time favorite dramas, the ridiculously underrated Someday (or as I like to call it, the closest Korea came to 'Mars'). And I've had a huge soft spot for Jung Yu Mi since Que Sera Sera. With that and the flistie raves, I decided to check it out despite my misgivings.



What can I say? I just finished the first episode and the love cannot be contained! It's funny, sexy (hello there, cable!) and fresh. The story involves two former lovers who ended their long-term, on-again-off-again relationship 3 years ago but have remained best friends. CAN YOU SAY MY CATNIP? My big problem with INR2011 was that it revolved around a couple whose spark has gone out and where the boyfriend was a serial cheater - ummm, I am not rooting for that. Here I like both LJW's and JYM's characters - both are quirky and have faults, but are also cool and with ridiculous chemistry - I am simply salivating for them to get their act together and get back together. tVN has done it again!

Caps of two make-out scenes. I know what's important! )

My only regret is that I got 450-with raws for this ep because while this isn't using a Red One camera or wallowing in a huge budget, it is pretty and I love it enough to want HD raws. Next time!
