dangermousie: (KO 3an Guo: GY/DC love)
Have just finished ep 2 of Hayate the Combat Butler and such love! It's not a particularly meta-able drama, but I love its quirky manga sensibility, its fast pace, its mysteries which keep my attention, and above all the adorable, shippable, darling OTP. The are so pretty together!





Oh, and her voice can bring him back from the dead. That's always a nifty thing to have around.





Ahem. I did not just post the above sequence just because of a bare-chested pic. Nope.

In conclusion:



So! Cute! Park Shin Hye, ditch Shin from Heartstrings as he only wants to mack on an older woman anyway, and make out like bunnies with your sexay yet lethal butler.

Finished the first ep of Hayate the Combat Butler and it continued adorable, very sweet and oddly gentle throughout. I am utterly hooked. Only twdramas can make it feel so mangaish and so wonderful at the same time.

Also, does anyone else think Maria is the girl from his past that he was having that weird flashback to when he was unconscious? Despite his crush, I really am not shipping him with Maria and much prefer him with Park Shin Hye - they both have the same level of maturity while Maria is about 10x smarter and more grown-up than the both of them put together. I do wonder how PSH will react when she realizes he was yet another in a long line of people who wanted to kidnap her (yes, I care for the characters already, one ep in. That's a good sign).

In other news, I found a trailer for the upcoming Absolute Boyfriend with Jiro and Gu Hye Sun. Not the greatest quality video but good for my purposes. Am so very excited now, because unlike the jdrama (which should never be mentioned lest I get PTSD flashbacks and palpitations), this looks like it's got the manga story and vibe down pat. Plus, Jiro can do both sexy and goofy and while I am not a big fan of GHS, her kind of hyper, physical (over)acting seems very suited for manga adaptations of twdramaland. Can't wait!

I am barely 15 min into the first ep of Hayate the Combat Butler (best name ever, or what?) starring George Hu and Park Shin Hye and I am in love! Only twdramas can make me adore romcoms, adore hilarious endearing nonsense, and just feel glee.

But you know when I got really sold? The first meeting between George Hu and Park Shin Hye. Curse his pesky goodness! In huge debt to the mob due to his useless parents, he contemplates kidnapping her for ransom but the plan goes hilariously haywire when his innate decency instead leads him to devend her from harassers. LOLOLOL I adore you, guys.

Hilarious caps )

And then she starts ragging on the poor quality of the clothes he lent her. Bwahahahahhaa.

Last week, two of my anticipated twdramas started - Material Queen and Hayate the Combat Butler. Viki is subbing them but I would prefer soft/hardsubs and not streaming. I know Doremii picked up Hayate but does anyone know if a subbing group picked up MQ?

Apparently, Hayate the Combat Butler's new airdate is May 6. I wouldn't stake any money on it - twdramas are notoriously bad about airtimes, but I do hope so. I want a fun and fluffy airing twdrama and nothing seems to be coming down the pipe. Yes, yes, I know about Drunken to Love You, but I am not touching that one with a ten-foot pole, seeing that I loathed its spiritual predecessor Fated to Love You (if there ever was a perfect Mousie anti-drama, that was it), I find the leading man completely unattractive, and the drama's title (what does it even mean? in what Universe is it grammatically correct?) makes me twitch every time I see it.

I do know Wu Zun and Rainie's Runaway Sweetheart is coming out at the end of May, so there is always that, but it isn't going to satisfy my newly-found crush on George Hu. Which reminds me, OMG, how does KO 3an Guo keep getting more and more awesome? It's the sole drama in all my years of watching that I have found fits my odd sense of humor perfectly. Usually I find dramas' attempts at humor about as fun as a root canal.

Yay?

I confess to being excited by upcoming twdrama Hayate the Combat Butler from day one, mainly because I think the title cannot be beaten for sheer awesomeness.

But there are other reasons to be excited by the drama about a poor young man who contemplated a life of crime to get out of debt but instead ends up rescuing an heiress from a kidnapping attempt. The heiress, who is constantly under kidnapping threats, then hires him as her butler.

1. Park Shin Hye. I love her. I liked her character in YAB a lot longer than I would have if anyone else played her. I want to see her in a twdrama (though likely dubbed) because I think her cute vibe would really fit twdrama world.
2. I have been craving some romcommy goodness. And while I cannot be sure this will have romance, I am pretty sure that is the reason they aged the heiress from a 12-yr-old kid to...well...Park Shin Hye.
3. While jdramas and kdramas don't work for me when they go for odd wacky concepts, twdramas usually do.
4. While even a few weeks ago I wouldn't have considered the drama's leading man, George Hu, either a detriment or an asset (I've seen him in Love At First Fight and TGH and was fine with him in both but I didn't go starry-eyed or anything), it all changed after I checked out the inspired insanity that is KO 3an Guo. Now I have a massive crush on his Guan Yu and am definitely looking to checking him out in another drama.

Hopefully it will be a fun ride - sort of like Mei-chan without all the power dynamics problems I had with the latter. Worst case scenario, we'll get something like Romantic Princess - which actively made me leak brain matter and fast-forward for the sake of my sanity, but was ultimately inoffensive. But hopefully it will be cooler than that.

Hayate is supposed to air in April but I haven't seen any traces of a trailer so I am not sure how accurate that start date is (ah, twdramas, and their last-minute scheduling which drives me nuts). I did find this adorable video of PSH and George Hu practicing ballroom dancing, so have at it:



There is also a twdrama coming out which is, apparently, called Girl in Boys' Dorm Room which I must applaud for its getting straight to the point.

Some of you may recall that a few months ago, Park Shin Hye became one of a batch of Korean actors to cross over in twdrama (gu Hye Su is starring in Absolute Boyfriend and Choi Siwon i Skip Beat). The twdrama of her choice was a adapatation of a manga with the most spectacular name ever - Hayate the Combat Butler. Indeed.



The titular Hayate is a young man on the run from crippling debts his parents left him. He accidentally meets and saves a sheltered young heiress and she decides to make him her butler. However, due to multiple attempts to kidnap or otherwise harm her, due to her wealth, his job requires not so much pouring port and supervising the upstairs maids, and more of using his awesome martial arts skill to kick bad guys in the face.

I don't know about you, but to me it sounds insanely delightful. Or delightfully insane.

Bring it on, say I! I am a little surprised Taiwan is adapting this because it's a shounen manga and most of their adaptations seem to tend towards shoujo, but they have aged the heiress in question (in the manga she's 12), clearly for purposes of romance.



Anyway, as you can tell, first few stills are out and they look cute. Stills are courtesy of ockoala's blog. I like Park Shin Hye, even if I don't always like her drama choices (YAB - ouch. Though she made me like her dishrag of a character longer than I otherwise have) and I like George Hu (I've seen him in ToGetHer and Love at First Fight), plus the concept is something that really appeals to me. So I am quite excited for this.

Btw, yes, PSH will be dubbed. Dubbing doesn't bother me, but mmv.
