The drama winter season is about to kick into full swing - January is full of goodies. Jdrama Wallflower, about an eccentric extreme goth and four pretty boys she befriends starts this Thursday. I love the source manga so even if I am not sure how well it will be adapted, I plan to check it out. And, of course, kdramas are the ones which preoccupy me, as always. Will It Snow for Christmas will continue it's well-made angst and melodrama this Wednesday. The Reputable Family has clearly become my first addicting drama of 2010 with its period love, rivalries and conspiracies (for once, they do not center on the court but on the merchant class - very refreshing). It has aired its first two episodes this Saturday and Sunday. And a whole slew of new dramas hit this week - both medical period drama Jejoongwon, about the first Western hospital in Korea, and romcom Pick the Stars, about an icy lawyer melted by burdened-by-orphaned siblings heroine, start Monday. My most anticipated of the year, Slave Hunters, starts this Wednesday, replacing my one true drama love IRIS, and hopefully will keep up the amazing KBS streak going. Two more dramas which start Monday are not really my thing - cooking romcom Pasta (I like the cast but find cooking-themed dramas boring) and teen manga adaptation Lord of Study (I am too old for it) but you never know. 2009 has been good to me, drama-wise. Hopefully 2010 will be as well.

I am, however, a bit in-between dramas - except for The Reputable Family and Will It Snow for Christmas, I am not really watching much. Yay for next week! But meanwhile I have checked out 1997 drama Beautiful My Lady - there are no subs but it's addicting and I craved old-fashioned romantic angst. My impressions are as follows:

(1) I like the heroine and (2) I have never seen Lee Byung Hun look that young!



(3) There is amazing kissing and romantic angst:



(4) And angsty bloody hugs:




(5) You know it's an old drama when people smoke on-screen:



And last point of this post, not connected to the others. I am still obsessed with IRIS and I love its cast. Here they are at the award ceremony.

Oh great, this is going to end well.

I am now simply obsessed with watching Beautiful My Lady, a 1997 angsty romantic drama starring Lee Byung Hun and Shim Eun Ha. I hold this MV fully responsible:



Even though it's a classic kdrama, so I know very well how it will end and I object in principle to Lee Byung Hun dying on my screen. Even though I can't get my hands on subs for love or money. Even though I have a backlog a mile long. WTF, self?

And yet I am currently downloading raws like nobody's business.

But I can't help it - it looks so very much my thing. She is a widow who learns to love again when she meets him - an orphan earning his living as a boxer. Despite her family's opposition, they get married and are happy and then (told you, it's a classic kdrama!), tragedy strikes.

Here is a brief clip from the drama:



Am off to torture myself...
