Seeing that a bunch of new kdramas are either about to start or have been announced, I thought it would be fun to do one of those periodical 'here is what's coming up, and here are my 2 cents' posts.

Below are all the upcoming kdramas that are on my radar, alphabetical order, and what I think about them.

So, by now I've checked out every airing kdrama I meant to check out. Below is my ranking (from most to least liked - first number is number of eps watched, second number is number of subbed eps out).

1. Faith (2/2) - my new obsession. It's feels like one of my favorite fantasy novels in lush drama form. I've rewatched the episodes out already and obsessed over every little possible thing.

2. Bridal Mask (22/22) - 22 eps aired, 6 eps to go, and obsession is still as strong with me. Smart and dark and poppy and awesome. Like Capital Scandal's older, cooler brother.

3. Arang and the Magistrate (2/2) - a fairy tale for grown ups, this one is ranked as high as it is due to the chemistry between the leads and the whimsical fantasy world. I am not unhealthily invested yet, but I have hopes.

4. Answer Me 1997 (6/6) - the understated underdog of the group. I can't relate to any of the teens at the center of this drama but they feel so real, plus 1990s nostalgia FTW!

5. To the Beautiful You (2/2) - silly and no great acting anywhere in evidence, but it's cute and sweet and relaxing. You could do worse with a fluffy shoujo manga adaptation.

6. May Queen (2/2) - it has the potential to be a great drama when the story moves into the adult portions, but even though the child actors are good, I never get invested in the kid portions of the story. Plus, due to the number of eps, it's moving a tad slowly.

7. Five Fingers (1/1) - I am sure I will enjoy the emo makjang once the adults show up but for now, it's a bunch of talented elders playing horrible people and a bunch of kid actors - and we know how I feel about that. Lower than MQ because it's gloomier.



For now, I am keeping all 7 because I am enjoying all 7, but who knows how it will turn out.

I think this season is literally untenable for me.

Here is what I want to follow:

Mon/Tues - Faith
Tues - Answer Me 1997
Wed/Thurs - Bridal Mask
Wed/Thurs - Arang and the Magistrate
Sat/Sun - Five Fingers
Sat/Sun - May Queen

That is 11+ hours of TV a week (probably closer to 13, seeing that a lot of eps are 1:10). Considering I have a family, job, other hobbies, and need to sleep, this is untenable. (
I used to follow 5 dramas at a time - Big, Bridal Mask, Dr. Jin, I Need Romance 2012, A Gentleman's Dignity, but not for long before they got modified to a more manageable 3. Plus, Bg and Dr Jin were ff-central).

Yet, how to cut it?

Come hell or high water, Gaksital is staying in - I obsessed over 20 eps, I am unlikely to ditch the last 8.
I am keeping both Arang and Faith unless either unexpectedly sucks. (Please don't!)
I could probably wait to finish AM1997 until it's done, only it's the drama with the smallest time commitment (an hour a week) and if I leave it out, I am left with three heavy-duty period dramas, which might be a bit much - one needs variety.

That leaves May Queen and Five Fingers. Between the two of them, I am more likely to keep FF, as Joo Ji Hoon is back and I love makjang, yet MQ looks good and oddly Giant-like.

What to do, what to do?

I think I might stable both the weekend dramas until Bridal Mask (and possibly AM1997) end in a few weeks - there is a good chance they might have barely just gotten out of kid portions then, and I always skim those anyway.

Dilemmas...

So, likely to keep, from most to least:

1. Bridal Mask
2. Faith
2. Arang and the Magistrate
4. Answer Me 1997
5. Five Fingers
6. May Queen.

i.e. what I am likely to be posting about:

Monday/Tuesday: Faith (are you kidding me? DUH!)
Wednesday/Thursday: Bridal Mask (you'll pry it out of my cold dead hands), Arang and the Magistrate (I need this in my life).
Saturday/Sunday: Five Fingers (JJH, baby!), May Queen (I love me some long sagas with pretty people)

That's three period dramas (two of them fantasy-ish) and two epicy and possibly makjang ones...I am predictable.

I will be skipping Haeundae Lovers (the teaser was abysmal and nothing about the concept appeals), Panda and Hedgehog (I feel my braincells die just thinking of it), and To the Beautiful You (I just know watching period and action dramas at the same time as this fluffest will just make me want to murder everyone in the latter).

Now that we are more than halfway through 2012, I thought it would be fun to discuss all the dramas I've seen so far and where they stand. I don't have to have seen every episode of every drama on the list, just enough to form an opinion...

One of my flisties asked for romantic jdrama recs and so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to make a list of my favorite romantic jdramas. When they do it right, nobody is as good.

In no particular order, here are my picks )

And now if you excuse me, I have some romantic jdramas to rewatch.

Yes, I know we are in the midst of a great drama season, but what can I say, I like to look ahead. Here are my Top 10 Most Anticipated, from least to most...

10. To The Beautiful You - I like schadenfreude - this adaptation of Hana Kimi, starring a bunch of idols, is bound to be horrific. The only thing better than a genuinely good drama, is a drama so bad it's fun to watch and mock. Please be this!

9. May Queen - here just for the cast. Shipping empires is not a topic that interests me, but it stars Han Hyo Joo, Jae Hee and Kim Jae Won - my kryptonite, all of them. Though please tell me Kim Jae Won is not the second lead or, if he is, that he gets his own OTP.

8. Horse Doctor - there is no way this list would not have at least one nice, traditional sageuk on the list. This one has a rock-solid cast and a pedigreed behind-the-scenes crew, even if the topic of a veterinarian becoming a royal doctor doesn't sound like a rockin' party time.

7. The Great Seer - speaking of traditional sageuks, if I had to limit myself to just one upcoming one, this one would win. I like the cast better, being a fan of most of the leads - Ji Jin Hee, Kim So Yeon, Go Soo (has he ever been in a sageuk before?), Song Chang Ui. Plus, the topic of divination and power is more my bag than medicine. Bring it on!

6. City Conquest - first, the bad - it stars Kim Hyun Joong, who is a work of art, looks-wise, but cannot act. It is also written by the writer of the trainwreck 'Lie to Me.' Still with me, guys? HOWEVER, despite his lack of acting skills, I find KHJ has a likeable screen presence and I have enjoyed him in his previous two dramas (there is also a chance he magically got better, but I am not that much of an optimist). The director is the one who did my obsession IRIS. But what draws me in is the story - based on a manhwa, this is the story of a young man who seeks revenge on society for the ruin of his family but, of course, inevitably falls in love.

5. Haeundae Lovers - it seems to be 'Time Between Dog and Wolf' as a comedy. I confess my interest went down when I realized that the rumors of Ji Sung starring were unsubstantiated and this will star Kim Kang Woo instead (nothing against the latter, but I am a big Ji Sung fan). Still, the premise, of an undercover cop who gets amnesia and believes he's really a gangster, while falling for a mob boss' daughter, seems rife with potential. Especially since the writer is the same one who did my darling City Hunter.

4. Five Fingers - About a family of pianists and evilness and birth secrets. Yes, it's a 50-episode makjang, but that won't stop me. This is the small-screen comeback of one of my earliest and biggest drama loves, Joo Ji Hoon, whose last drama was in 2007. (Said drama, Mawang, is my favorite kdrama, bar none). At this point, I'd watch it if it was puppet theater. JJH is not the only draw - I am genuinely interested - I am a lot fonder of both long dramas and makjang than most of my flisties, and the potential for angsty shippping and photogenic misery is darling. It costars Eunjung (Coffee House) as a leading lady and I like her, plus Ji Chang Wook (Warrior Baek Dong Soo) as evil incarnate, so the cast makes me happy in my happy place. Now make Joo Ji Hoon have a shower of manpain, drama!

3. Arang and the Magistrate - Lee Junki is back on my screen! In a period supernatural melodrama mystery involving a female ghost seeking justice. Said ghost is played by Shin Minah and there is a romance between her and LJK. How do I love this, let me count the ways: (a) A period drama; (b) Starring two of my all-time favorites, after a long break; (c) All the stills released are painting-gorgeous; (d) A really rarely-done concept; (e) and I am sure the romance will be beyond angsty, seeing she's a ghost.

2. Nice Guy - the more years I watch dramas, the more I realize that the writer is more important than anything, actors or PD included. No actor or PD, however accomplished, can save a badly-written drama. Luckily, this drama is a perfect combination - it stars Song Jung Ki (who blew me away in Tree with Deep Roots, and for whom this is his first leading drama role) opposite Moon Chae Won but, even more excitingly, it is written by the sublime Lee Kyung Hee, who has written drama after drama I adored. Nice Guy is a dark romantic melodrama (my favorite genre, second only to period dramas) about a man who wants to use a young woman for vengeance but ends up falling for her instead. The last time LKH did a dark, vengeance-driven romance, she gave us A Love to Kill, which was incredibly polarizing, but remains my favorite melodrama of all time (all right, tied with Snow Queen) and is in my Top 5 dramas, period. Add in Song Joong Ki's intensity and my love for Moon Chae Won, and I am sold. Beyond sold.

1. Faith - About a general who time-travels to the present to bring a doctor back for his princess, and the surgeon who ends up accompanying him back in time, this is my most anticipated drama of 2012 by far (it was vying with Bridal Mask for that slot and BM is currently airing). It would take a miracle for this drama to not appeal to me, seeing that it is written by the legendary Song Jina, who has yet to write a drama that didn't work for me, and that this is a reunion of Song Jina with her PD from Legend, a drama that is one of my all-time favorites. It is also set around the Mongolian invasions and is a fusion sageuk (so was Legend!) involving time-travel and starring Lee Min Ho, my huge crush, and the star of City Hunter, one of my all-time favorite dramas, in his first sageuek role as a general. Kim Hee Sun is beautiful and underappreciated (I must be one of 10 people who loved Smile Again) and I think will be great opposite him. Plus, on a shallow note, it will also star Lee Phillip (Legend, Secret Garden) and Sung Hoon (New Tales of Gisaeng), so if your hormones are not overwhelmed, there might be something wrong with you.
