And I hate every adult character in this with a burning passion, except for Choi Sira's slighted wife who turns into a monster but I can't blame her - she is married to a man who makes me want to kill him on sight every time he appears (he makes the husband from Baker King seem an angel) and she has a mother-in-law from hell. I mean, what she does isn't right, especially towards poor Ji Ho, who is innocent in all of this, but I can totally get why she is the way she is - hell, in her place I would have gone ten times as psycho, probably even towards poot JH too.

This is a more makjang and not as good take on Baker King actually. Hmmmm.

Before I take Baby Mousie out to trick-or-treat.

1. I watched the first two episodes of Man of Honor and liked it. Even though the story is different, I could tell it was made by the Baker King people about two minutes in - the vibe, the narrative structure, the character types. I adored BK so it's a good thing for me, but if you did not, maybe you should stay away. I confess to loving Chun Jung Myung's underdog protagonist better than YSY's underdog protagonist in BK because CJM is a much better actor. Whatever else happens, I want Yeong Gyung to find happiness. Park Min Young is her bright, adorable self - when have I not loved her? They have a lovely chemistry (the scene at the end of ep when they first meet is just amazing). Where it's inferior to BK is the secondary guy. In BK, Ma Jun was probably my favorite character and his dysfunctional relationship with Eugene's character made my top 10 OTPs that year. Here, my main emotion towards the secondary guy/antagonist is a desire for him to jump off a cliff pronto.

2. I tried with Revenge, I really tried. But I think I have room in my heart for only one trashy revenge show and it's Ringer. I will probably get back to the woes of rich people show soon, but I am very underwhelmed.

3. I continue to be obsessed with Once Upon a Time. I enjoyed the peek into Evil Queen's background in this ep, and Emma v. EQ showdown, but show, I need need NEED more Snow White! Luckily, the preview for ep 3 promises me more:



If Prince Charming will be brought out of his coma through the Power of Love (tm), I will officially decide that this is a kdrama in disguise.

Is anyone else excited about the upcoming Man of Honor, a.k.a. Glory Jane, which is replacing TPM?

I need something light, I adore both Chun Jung Myung (though I was disappointed in his choice of last few roles) and Park Min Young, and this is by the Baker King people and BK was insanely addictive (Team Ma Jun, for the record, I wonder if it will happen here :P)

So, bring it on!

I swear, I will stop spamming, but I barely posted during the week so...

Anyone else going to check out Golden Pond (i.e. Ojakgyo Brothers), the new family kdrama? I am hit-and-miss with family kdramas (when done right, they become some of my favorites but a lot of them don't grab me) but I plan to check this one solely do to casting - it stars Joo Won (who stole the entire drama along with my heart in Baker King as the conflicted sexy mess that was Ma Jun. Ma Jun/Yoo Kyung was one of my ultimate OTPs of 2010 and totally unexpected) and Uee (who was hilarious and oddly likeable playing a stereotypical Hong Sisters' secondary girl in YAB) as an OTP. Just check out this trailer:



And they are using Umbrellas of Cherbourg music!

Plus, Ryu Soo Young is in this and I adore him. This being a family drama, I hope he gets an OTP of his own too.

Oh, and because Ma Jun is one of my favorite kdrama characters ever, have a Ma Jun vid:



I don't know what it is with me and dark dysfunctional messes. I simply cannot resist, at least in fiction. I still wish the whole drama was the Ma Jun show (sorry, Tak Gu, you know I love you!)

Isn't it a lovely poster? It makes me happy to just look at it and conveys the lovely, warm feeling I get while watching this drama perfectly.

I am about 20 minutes into the first ep and I love it. I love the way it's filmed - crisp, warm tones, not particularly exciting cinematography but not closed-in, either. Just very solid. I love all the actors and have no objection to childhood portions at all - and if you know me and my loathing for childhood parts of storylines, that's saying a lot. I am still a little confused on who is who, but figured out that Woori is our future heroine (and eeee, her mother is deaf - I can't wait to see how this will tie into her interactions with her future OTP. I mean, assuming he even knows sign language since, if he's pretending not to have a problem, he might not. Though how does he function? Lip reading? I guess I'll find out). Woori is a kid but sharp and funny and a dreamer and so very believably a kid, with her desire to play piano so she can wear princessy dresses, or her crush on her kinda future stepbro (I think), the kid with the attitude whose father is mentally challenged. Haven't caught his name yet, but that kid is wonderful too - the believable adolescent sullenness and the edge of childhood, all mixed up. Of course, he's much too cool for 'baby' Woori. And there's our future hero, Dong Joo, who I haven't yet seen much of, but I liked what I saw - he's clearly loved and petted by his whole family (and is well-off too), but while he is clearly secure in his place in the world and the love he is 'owed', he is not bratty or spoiled with it in the least.

I am not sure why, but the vibe is reminding me a bit of Baker King, which is a good good thing.

CYHMH is by the writer of both Last Scandal (fluffy, trendy romcom with a wonderful heart) and Tree of Heaven (intense, angsty tragic melodrama that made me bawl for hours) and occupies sort of a middle ground thematically - like a melodrama, there are plenty of class differences, first love, birth issues, etc (I mean, the hero is someone who loses his hearing in a childhood accident but goes through life pretending to hear - that's not really romcommy in the least), but unlike ToH and like LS, it feels warm and optimistic.

Despite their differences, both LS and ToH gave me some unforgettable and intense love stories (ToH especially) so I hope this drama will too. I suppose I'll find out once the adults show up.

My Gloria love cemented what I was earlier suspecting with dramas like Giant and Baker King - I really dig long kdramas and go for family ones in a big way.

So my next binge is likely to be Golden Bride - I saw and liked the first ep ages ago but was scared by the length and put it away. Well, the length doesn't bother me any more, so here we come.

I couldn't find any main otp mvs, so have a secondary otp one:



I also want to continue with Family Honor, where I was also scared off by the length before - but seeing how I loved the writer's Gloria and Pick the Stars, that it stars darling scene-stealer Park Shi Hoo, and that it's actually shorter than Gloria, here I come! I hear dramafever has it (dls don't have great visual quality because they are tv rips so I'd rather stream).
