dangermousie: (Faith OTP by vierran45)


I think I figured out why I adore Faith so. It is pretty much a more adult, smarter version of Fushigi Yuugi, a manga/anime I was obsessed with years ago. Think about it - we have a cheerful heroine who has been transported from modern times to a violent fantasy world. This heroine loves to eat, is viewed as a divine symbol and the King requests her help. Her OTP is a deadly warrior with a tragic past who is beyond obsessed with protecting her. Oh, and the bad guy loves mind games, collects people with powers and has a slashtastic fixation on the hero. See? Fushigi Yuugi. Hopefully minus the death-toll.

Some caps and thoughts )

In other news, I am not watching this week's eps of Gaksital until I find out how the drama ends so, in case it ends badly, I will be prepared.

Speaking of Gaksital - being in both this and Five Fingers is doing Jin Se Yeon no favors because seeing her in two different dramas yet playing pretty much the same character highlights the limits of her range and skill. (Compare it to her Gaksital costar Joo Won - at one point I was watching him in both Gaksital and Ojakgyo Brothers and his two characters and he in the roles were vastly different). It also doesn't help that she is way outclassed by Choi Sira, Joo Ji Hoon and Ji Chang Wook. It kind of makes me wish that they got a more charismatic, experienced young actress with chops - someone like Jung So Min, Seo Woo or Im Joo Eun. I am sure I'll get over it once Gaksital is done though.

I need subs for ep 7 of Arang and the Magistrate yesterday. I neeeeed them!

Also, I am going to be eternally amused if there is even any hint of a romantic triangle because it's not every day a kdrama triangle involves a secondary guy who has killed the heroine twice. I've seen some amazing secondary guy behavior but beating that would be pretty much impossible. I'd think with a set-up like that, all the Magistrate has to do is keep breathing (or possibly even not) to come away as a better candidate. Though you would then get mother-in-law from hell. Literally. Hmmm, if she wants a date, maybe Arang should move to another village.

Joking aside, somehow slowly and gradually I became obsessed with AandtM - I love how atmospheric it is, how offbeat, unpredictable, and gorgeous, what a great fantasy world it has, and the abrasive, vibrant leads. I don't even care if the mysteries are resolved and if Arang and the Magistrate get together (OK, I lied. I care). I am enjoying the trip itself too much.
