I confess my interest in Rooftop Prince is beginning to wane. I am currently managing to keep up with 4 airing dramas (all three W/Th dramas and Love Rain) but I am about to add Hero to the list and try to catch up on God of War and if I will find that I need to drop one, RP will probably be the one. It's a cute, sweet drama but it's darling fluff and I am constitutionally unable to be fully invested in a fluffy drama to the extent I prefer other kinds.

This said, the sequence at the end of ep 5 was adorable.

Sequence in question )

Also, Yoochun looks about 200x hotter with that modern haircut and a smile (though he looked fine in Joseon garb) and I am excited Park Ha finally remembered the truth about Sena. Now if only she conveys said truth to Princey.

Episodes 5 and 6 of TEM gave me shivers. This drama's cat-and-mouse game is more overt than that of Mawang but not any less tense, smart and satisfying. Jang Il is such an utter black hole of moral failure. I'd almost say that his being the way he is would be sufficient punishment, except the hell that he plunged Sun Woo into deserves a more bloody repayment.




Luckily Sun Woo agrees with me. The scene above was perfect. I love that he remembers every bit of what happened but is pretending not to - his cat and mouse with Jang Il keeps me on the edge of my seat (JI, btw, still clearly manifests that he'd have no second thoughts about committing another murder if he had to. In trying to kill Sun Woo, he also killed any hope of a worthy future for himself).



Ji Wan and Sun Woo are the sole ray of sunshine in the story and I ship them in part because of that, but also because I know how much it would devastate Jang Il. In your face, soulless psycho!

I have some caps from ep 4 of Rooftop Prince (but still not much meta because this is a darling piece of fluff).

Some pretty pretty caps )

In the unlikely event you missed it, here is the preview for ep 5 of K2H with subs. Is it Wednesday yet? I need this in my life!



I do wonder how they end up engaged? Cannot wait to find out!

Also, seeing HJW is making me nostalgic for Secret Garden, one of my favorite dramas, so have this gorgeous MV.

RP continues to be a breezy, hilarious delight (which, nonetheless, knows when to go for the emotional jugular - that last scene, ouch!). It's not a particularly meta-able drama, but it gives me a couple of hours of pleasure each week.

Yoochun continues to rock his role and is, by turns, funny and oddly vulnerable (I love that he fit so well into his society and was so sure and alpha but now he's utterly befuddled and often cowed by tiny tiny Han Ji Min). His chemistry with HJM continues great (the scenes at the fair were to die for).

My one problem is the bad guys. About the most exciting thing I can say about them is that Tae Mu is kinda hot for a murderer. I don't mind hissable villains but I do mind when they are dull. Of course, if you remove the chaebol family plot, then this drama would be a pure sitcom like a much much MUCH better version of Vampire Idol, so I suppose that's OK.

Anyway, it's adorable, it made me laugh repeatedly, I got misty-eyed a time or two, and it's fully subbed on viki. What's not to love?

Every time Yoochun addresses Han Ji Min as "You Evil Thing" and treats her like some sort of a powerful demon while acting in haugty royal fashion, while she looks at him as if he is a lunatic and is utterly unimpressed, I die inside. From laughter and joy.

Also, modern world shock is hilarious.

And I realized why he doesn't recognize HJM - he only saw her past self with a veil so he has no idea what her face looks like!

Marry me, drama!!!

Ep 1 was nice. Ep 2 is brilliant.

Short version: Love Love Love! It's funny, it's moving, it's got a twisty plot (in the whole 'who killed the crown princess' part in the past) and it manages to juggle past and present storylines effortlessly.

Longer version, with spoilers )

This was shown at the Rooftop Prince presscon and how they expect me to wait over a week for this, I have no idea. I have already rewatched it three times.

Anyway, here is the reel (taken from [livejournal.com profile] clairiere).



!!!! I love how it's totally hilarious but with some serious, serious darkness thrown in too. Han Ji Min and Yoochun continue their campaign to conquer the world through adorableness, and the sole problem (if one can call it that) is that seeing the period bits, I am left craving that there was an AU version of this which was solely the period part with the the intrigue and everything...

I promise to reply to comments tomorrow. Am ridiculously exhausted and swamped (and trying to stay unspoiled for SUFBB 9-10. SPOIL ME AND DIE).

OK, on with the show...

1. Did you ever find yourself thinking "I wish there was another kdrama with the exact plot of You're Beautiful minus the awesomeness of Jang Geun Seok?" If so, your dreams are about to be realized. Channel A is getting ready to premiere The Ultimate Audition, a drama starring Park Yoohwan (Yoochun's baby brother) and a bunch of newbie idols, all about a girl cross-dressing to join an idol group and getting involved with the group leader, who's perfect in front of the fans but is actually a jerk in private. Sound familiar? If I were Hong Sisters, I'd be getting my lawyers up.



Your eyes bleeding yet?

Snark (and the fact that even writing the above paragraph reduced my IQ by a dozen points) aside, I am all set for the first ep to air, and I will be all over this baby. Sometimes I enjoy silly cotton candy and this makes me think of my fun twdramas of old. Now, let's hope there will be subs - viki doesn't have rights to cable stuff, this is likely to be too low-profile for dramafever and withs2, so my hope is in DS...

2. So excited for King 2 Hearts which makes me think more and more of some of my favorite shoujo. And darn if Lee Seung Gi doesn't look handsome in that uniform and with that hairstyle:



I normally fall for his characters like mad, but this is the first time I've found him gorgeous off the bat.

More pics. I want this out already! )

Also, Ha Ji Won is ridiculously gorgeous and I can't tell the age difference at all (I mean, I have no idea if it's supposed to be an older woman/younger man romance, but I am willing to buy they are the same age!)

3. Speaking of royals getting involved with kickass ladies, the posters for Rooftop Prince are out and they are all adorable (you can find them all on soompi and dramabeans) but this is my favorite:



This is going to be kooky adorable!

4. I have watched the first ep of the Qing palace mystery Mystery in the Palace, starring Gai Ting Ting and Kevin Cheng (a.k.a. the only man except for FSF to actually look gorgeous in Qing braid). It's gorgeous (the costumes! the sets!), the story is interesting, and the OTP (who may or may not be half-siblings) will be just my thing, if MVs and previews are anything to go by:



5. Apparently the OTPs of Dream High 2 are still as clear as mud 10 (out of 16) episodes in. There are ship wars. By this point, I think TPTB are just screwing with fangirls.
