If there is one shippy trope that I am an utter slave to, it's the tall, icy, messed-up in reserved fashion businessman being utterly puzzled and smitten by the outgoing, chirpy, tiny girl he can't get of his mind. That is why I was so obsessed with Min Woo and Miju in Giant and that is why I am now fixated on Woo Jin/Joomi in A Thousand Kisses. They make me melt...It doesn't hurt that I adore both Ryu Jin and Kim So Eun, both of whom are capable of having chemistry with a brick wall.

By now, I just skip any scene that doesn't involve either of them (or people talking about them). I couldn't care less if the main couple jumped off the edge of the earth and died.

Caps of eps 5 and 6 )

Have a really adorable MV (I especially love that it uses a song I am super-fond of).



I am currently on ep 6 - please tell me they get more screentime. Almost everyone on-line is only watching ATK for them.

Also, I repeat. If they make WJ's stepmom Joomi's bio mom, I will kill things. I do not want angst for my darlings at all. Only in a kdrama would age difference and the guy's utter lack of social skills not be enough of an obstacle so they'd be tempted to throw in sharing a blood sibling and being unknowing stepsiblings.

Woo Jin/Joomi FTW. I watched ep 3 of A Thousand Kisses raw. I won't do it any more as it's a very talky drama and I get hopelessly lost but ahhhh, the cuteness!

What is the male equivalent of old maid? Because he so is one! )

I need subs!

After ep 2, it's official. I am in love!

If I had one niggle it's that I need more Woo Jin/Joomi (Ryu Jin/KSE) right NOW!!!! They have ridiculous chemistry and visually are just so appealing together. Their scenes turn me into jelly. Don't be stingy, drama! I like the main OTP just fine but I am obsessed with WJ/JM. And if online fandom is any indicator, I am not the only one - in fact, they seem to be the OTP everyone is obsessed over, not the main one. (Tbh, I think it will be like Gloria with two OTPs, each of which will have enough screen-time to be viewed as main).

He is so repressed, it's insane.



And no wonder, that is one dysfunctional family - as far as I can tell, his father dumped his mother when WJ was a little boy (and Mom then died) to marry his mistress, but it's not as if he ever treated the mistress as a human being either. No wonder WJ is a repressed icicle who never wants to be in love. Also, I am kinda amazed at how someone can be so rigidly polite while somehow projecting a constant 'fuck you' at the same time (to his stepmom).

Anyway, issues and angst and all that, it doesn't matter because he has no chance against Hurricane Joomi. Yup, that's one smitten and determined girl.



Not that I blame her. RAWR!!!



Pretty much, she is exactly what he needs - she is spunky and cheerful and forthright and irrepresible but also nice. (She is my favorite chracter, can you tell?) Plus, she won over Emo Rich Potter Boy, explictly against source manga canon, and after that anything is child's play.

Also, after years of drama-watching, I have a sixth sense for angst, and I can just tell their storyline will be the angsty one. I am not even referring to the 11-yr age difference or the fact that she is not from a 'suitable' family or the fact that he will have to have a crash course in emotions. Nope, the drama is making it pretty clear that Woo Jin's despised stepmom (who I actually like btw) is Joomi's birth mom - she walked out on Joomi and her older sis (the heroine) to marry Woo Jin's Dad. Ahh, kdramas - fakecest is like candy to you, isn't it? For once I actually hope I am wrong about my favorite trope (though I don't think I am) because I want this to be my fluffy safe darling.

Oh well, I shall distract self with height difference!



And promo cuteness! )

Just finished ep 1 of A Thousand Kisses and I am in love. I came for Ryu Jin and Kim So Eun, but even though they weren't much in this ep and had no interaction, I still adored it. I love everyone - awesome married heroine who is pragmatic and sweet



her cute little kid, her grandmother, the conflicted family of the Chairman (Ryu Jin's Dad), KSE's spunky common sense darling who is just so ridiculously, gloriously alive



the sexy/awesome soccer manager hero.



We haven't seen much of Ryu Jin yet but he is all withdrawn and icy and RAWR.



I can't stand heroine's cheater of a husband or his Mom but they will make fun people to hate. This whole drama just makes me giddy. Waiting for more eps will be torture. (4 eps are out, 2 are subbed).

It is my new love.

Soompiers are speculating whether heroine and KSE's Mom (I am going to learn names soon, I promise) who left is actually Chairman's wife/Ryu Jin's stepmom. That would be WAY too Miss Ripleyish (which is the drama heroine's MIL was watching, LOL), but you never know.

I have also finally watched Myung Wol 14 with subs and my deep thoughts can be summed up thusly: Kang Woo got a new haircut!!!



He should get his heart broken more often.

It is an odd thing - the older I get, the more I like family dramas. When I first started my drama obsession back in 2005 or so, I think there were greater chances of me relocating to Spitzbergen than becoming enamored of a family drama, but as time goes on, I find myself more and more inclined to view them as favorites - even when I do not obsess over them (and I often do obsess, make no mistake), they become a sort of comfort food for the soul. Three of my favorite dramas this year were family dramas - Gloria, New Tales of the Gisaeng, Can You Hear My Heart (four, if you add in Family Honor which I only discovered this year).



And so, when I realized that starting next week, I will have only two kdramas to follow-both of them grim grim sageuks-my first choice of drama to add to the list was a contemporary, family drama. A Thousand Kisses, to be exact.

My reason? Ryu Jin and Kim So Eun and my pre-obsession with this couple, age difference and all. Oh, I am sure I will find the main couple (a divorcee finding love with a younger man) quite appealing. But it is RJ/KSE that is my reason for starting, I adore them both beyond words and think they should be in more things. Ryu Jin owns my heart since Capital Scandal and I think he can do no wrong. KSE was one of the few things that kept me going through second half of Boys Over Flowers and she so fresh and charming and loveable. Together? Heaven!



Apparently she plays a college student/grad in her early twenties and he is a professional in his early thirties. He doesn't date or get married because, due to his screwed-up upbringing, he doesn't believe he can make a woman happy. She is spunky and crushing and determined to prove him wrong. Wonder who will win :)

On a purely shallow note, he is about a million feet taller than she is - my favorite thing! Heeee.

Have a MV:



And the world's cutest scene:



I plan to get to Ojakgyo Brothers too, but with that one I want to wait until there is at least a dozen subbed eps.
