Tonight, I have come to a momentous realization:
It's all Matsumoto Jun's fault.
My current drama obsession that is turning me into a scary-vampire-looking person from lack of sleep?
MatsuJun. My first drama was Mars
and it's still my favorite. But despite watching this and Meteor Garden
(which I also adored), I wasn't sure if I wanted to pursue the genre in general as opposed to them both being adaptations of manga I loved. Hana Yori Dango
jdrama was my third, and it pushed me over the edge. Three in a row, thought I? Must find more. Now look at me.
Weird ships? MatsuJun again. There it was me, a most vanilla person, realizing I was going to a Special Hell, because I was shipping a teacher/student, something I found totally ick before. The drama? Gokusen
. Ten minutes in, I was going 'whaaa? whaaaaa? I can't ship Shin/Yankumi' But there is was. (Just read my Gokusen posts for my flailing over that fact). And what did it open up? The floodgates. Forbidden Love
. Then Sang-Doo
. Now I am impatiently waiting for Hello My Teacher
Falling over the edge of obsessiveness and finally making me learn how to use clubbox (entirely in Korean! Mr. Mousie just shook his head when he learned) and watching hours and hours of a show entirely in Japanese because I am unwiling to wait a couple of days for subtitles? Can we say Hana Yori Dango 2
Complete destruction of my principles of what I find acceptable in fiction? Yeah. Guess. What is the movie I am totally looking forward to? I am in love with my little sister
. It's about twins in love with each other, for God's sake. I can't deal with any sort of 'cest. I was always horrified by it in fic. I am one of the only five people in Supernatural
fandom who doesn't slash the brothers. I always have an instinctive shuddery reaction to 'cest in stories. But this movie? I am disturbed by being not at all disturbed but thinking 'angst! good hair! more angst!'
I give up.
I am afraid to watch Kimi Wa Petto
for fear of what that will result in.
Th funny thing, he isn't even my favorite drama actor (Vic Zhou) or jdrama actor (Kimura Takuya or Yamapi are that). LOL.
Oh. I am going to hell. And it's all the fault of a jpop star.( In order to have a fun soundtrack on the way there, some MVs from MatsuJun dramas )
