dangermousie: (ISWAK first kiss by pinkfactory)


The replacement for tvN's late, lamented Shut Up Flower Boy Band is the lighthearted romcom The Marriage Plot. In a set-up more suited to a weekend family drama (not that this is a bad thing), the mother of four single daughters schemes to get them husbands via cohabitation (no, I have no idea how she convinces the individuals in question).



I am mainly tuning in for Lee Kyu Han, who I have been fangirling for years, finally landing a leading-man role (I think he's ridiculously underrated - he's got great chops and is super-hot. I honestly have no idea why he's not a bigger star). Plus, another of the four bachelors is played by the brilliant Lee Min Woo, who won my heart in The Princess' Man. I am not familiar with the three actress who play three secondary sisters, and am only barely familiar with the leading lady, Kang Hye Jung. I thought she was miscast in Miss Ripley, but that was a flawed (if interesting) drama, so I am willing to give her another chance. Plus, I believe in real life she's married to Tablo, so mad props to her for keeping her sanity with that whole lunatic diploma thing going on.

Have the official MV, sung by Kim Hyun Joong:



So cute! I am in!

I am 8 eps into HZGG and my take on it can be summed up as: pretty fluff with some cool outfits.

I adore Zi Wei/Er Kang (though every time people discourse on how gorgeous Ziwei is, I am puzzled. I like the character but lookwise, she's the plainest cdrama leading lady I've seen). I skip to their scenes a lot:





DOES YAN ZI EVER CALM THE FUCK DOWN?! Seriously, I have high tolerance for madcap, cutesy, hyper heroines, but I want to throttle our ostensible heroine who has the maturity, survival skills and brains of a pancake and acts as if she's permanently on uppers. Common sense is on another planet from this lady. I love suicidally feisty (adored Yang Mi's character in Gong) but Yan Zi appears brain-damaged. She's also not good-looking either (cdramas have so many gorgeous actresses, why is this big-budget production about beauties stocked with so many plain women?) but it's her insane character that drives me off the bend. Her behavior would be cute in my daughter. My daughter is two years old.



Ugh. I know that she is shipped a lot with Fifth Prince, but he seems a fairly nice guy. What has he done to be afflicted with YZ? I really hopes she simmers down.



In conclusion, this guy (I think he's Er Kang's bro) is the only one rocking the queue.



I lied. In other conclusion, can Benjamin go away? I have nothing against the actor, but the character is so wholesomely bland he makes me want to sleep.

So, HZGG - very pretty, some stories and characters I adore, others I want to drown. So basically, your average drama. Though I confess that I kinda want to unleash Zombie Yong Zheng on them and wipe the floor with the lot of them.

Sure, Creepy is sociopathically evil. But he's also completely deranged. What kind of a person genuinely believes that the woman you blackmail into marriage with you and who loves another, will totally totally totally reciprocate your feelings soon, especially if you have the man she loves beaten almost to death for daring to speak to her. I mean - brilliant plan - take her on a date to the hospital to show her the guy unconscious in the icu and tell her that you wanted to have his achilles tendons slit but you held yourself back due to love you feel for her and not wanting to be a bad guy in her eyes.






???????

!!!!!!


I mean - if all he wanted was a hot wife with great family connections, and hang what she may think of him, it's an evil plan but at least I can comprehend it. But how on earth can he believe he is slowly making her fall for him? Awwwww, more men could get love only if they got their crushes' loved ones tortured to bits. Everyone knows the ladies swoon for that stuff.

Creepy really really freaks me out. If he did get Yoon Seo, is there any doubt he'd beat and rape her and make her life a living hell? Probably thinking all the while it's her fault for not loving him as she should.

Creepy is reminding me a bit of Secondary Guy in Delightful Girl Chunhyang who couldn't for the life of him understand why the heroine didn't want to be with him when all he did was frame her husband for rape in order to blackmail her into divorcing him and going with Secondary Guy.

Ahhh, insane bad men of kdrama.

(I love the almost manga-like compositions of shots here btw. Gloria doesn't have the most amazing cinematography a la Secret Garden, but in its quiet way, it's lovely).
