Endless Love = Endless Cuteness

You guys, he does underground extreme fighting to earn money to take care of his mentally handicapped father!

(Also sells fake brand clothes on the street and delivers milk, but that's a little less sexy).

Mmmmm, twdramas, ILY.

Btw, is Sandrine Pinna Caucasian or at least half-Caucasian? She looks entirely white.

I like that her character is totally crushing on him without realizing it yet. Heee. I mean, he bandaged her foot and got her a lollipop and was cute while doing so. What more can a college girl want? I also like that she's spoiled and thoughtless but not too much or too bad about it - sort of in a 'she's young and has been petted all her life' kind of way.

Ah, fandom

Yes, am hideously behind in replies. I promise to get to them today.

In other news, I am not watching My Girlfriend is a Gumiho anymore (it failed to capture my interest and I dropped it after ep 4 - if neither of the main characters is mature and/or competent, I can't deal) but the fandom consternation that it will have an unhappy ending is amusing me. Are you kidding me? Hong Gil Dong notwithstanding, this is not happening - for one, this is not a sageuk (however fusion) but a fluffy romcom. For another, the characters aren't fighting institutional opression here which is historically supposed to go on for another 500 years. But I kinda hope it does end badly because much as I love Lee Seung Gi, boy is nowhere near being able to express proper grief/death stuff and to see him try would be amusing. I'd even tune in.

Feel like a clever cop show? Then this is for you...

I have just started a Taiwanese drama Black and White, about two rather different cops who end up paired up to investigate a drug-distribution deal which turns into a giant conspiracy.



Two episodes in and I highly recommend it, even if you are not normally into dramas - slick production values, twisty plot, strong women, the mob, two awesome cops etc etc - I can see this as a British series.

All that, and endless possibilities for slash.

So far, here are the five main characters:

They are behind the cut. Nonspoilery. Plus more reasons to watch )

Cain and Abel...

Looking for a kdrama after BOF is over? Check out Cain and Abel! It has everything: revenge, angsty love, sibling rivalry, evil families, amnesia, major manpain, pretty cinematography, twisty plot. Oh, and above all So Ji Sub and Han Ji Min. Whoever thought to cast the two of them as leads has my undying love because...seriously. OMG. I love them.

Here is an unspoilery general MV I found featuring four main characters:

BOF fixation...

I am so desperate to watch ep 22 of Boys Over Flowers, I am watching it on youku with hideous quality and endless buffering (and obviously no subs) as it's not on youtube yet and I don't want to wait the 20 or so minutes while I am dling (once dl finishes, I am switching to it)!

You know, I have no idea if JP objects at his own wedding or not, but I oddly find myself unbothered either way - I think I achieved such a state of zen by finally letting go any notion of him being Domyouji, and in the absence of that, I don't find it so odd that a guy wouldn't call off the wedding on which his company depends (and which would also protect the girl he loves) when the girl he'd ditch it for refused to tell him not to go and get married even when he asked her to, and when he has no indication at all she still loves him after the break-up and probably thinks she doesn't. To ditch such a wedding for nothing would be futile; it is something Domyouji would do because he doesn't get controlled and doesn't give up, but JP isn't Domyouji, unfortunately...In abstract, what JP does is not reprehensible - or maybe I've just gone soft in the head under the influence of too much BOF.

In news of the OTP I do care about even more than the main one - I've seen preview for ep 23 and heeee. Ga Eul must have been a Mountie in her past life because she always gets her man :) The funny thing is, when everybody loved SoEul because they were so cute and snipey, I was bored as they were so well-adjusted, and then when emo angst kicked in, is when I got onto the ship and am so digging their storyline now - I am such a born kdrama watcher.

ETA: Yes yes yes - Spoilery for ep 22 )

Amnesia, revenge, and prison torture: this is not your regular episode of E.R.

Since my interest (and the drama run) in BOF is winding down, and I don't think Princess Jae Myung Go alone will keep me drama-occupied, I found another airing kdrama to keep me company: Cain and Abel.



I wasn't going to check it out until later, despite my love for So Ji Sub and han Ji Min, because...medical drama = boring to yours truly.



But.

But.

Why did nobody inform me that there is torture and evil families and amnesia and plucky North Korean refugee girls? Am sold.

A few more shots which sold me )

Heh. Almost nobody in kdramas gets tormented as well as So Ji Sub and the makers of C&A clearly know it.
