I apologize for the scattershot posts since I got back from Turkey, but I am still catching up on things, plus the weather is too nice ;)

Proper posts on Love Rain (still owns me) and Queen In Hyun's Man (perfection) will be done, I swear, weekend latest.

But for now, I bring you this adorableness to partially compensate for my neglect:



I have switched into rabid shipper mode already. Eeeeeee - the adorableness levels are through the roof. But that's the thing - whatever one thinks of his acting skills (which I am personally fine with), there is no denying Song Seung Heon has great chemistry with his leading ladies and Park Min Young is the most adorable thing on earth, who also sizzled like a sizzling thing with Lee Min Ho in City Hunter (and Yoochun in Sungkyunkwan Scandal).

I had no ships in the Japanese Jin, but I am pretty sure this won't be the case here! (But then, Korean Jin managed to get the cast of my dreams, so shipping was always in the cards).

Best of all? Jin starts on my birthday and even though I will be in Montreal, living it up, I can just pretend the airing is a special birthday present from the drama TPTB. How did they know I would love angsting, period-clothed SSH falling for an earlier incarnation of his dead (or comatose?) true love?

Now, off to watch episode 17 of K2H. I feel like such a freak, but while I like this drama and find it very solid, with some outstanding acting (even if the writing on anything resembling real politics is...the less said the better), but I am not obsessively in love with it, the way the entire drama fandom seems to be. It just doesn't have that extra something to make me truly care, even though worse dramas managed that. No idea why. I like it, like it a lot. I just wish I loved it.

1. Respond to everyone...

2. Catch up on The King 2 Hearts eps 13-14, Love Rain 11-14 (bliss!!!) and Queen In Hyun's Man eps 5-6. I am putting aside The Equator Man to binge when it's done.

3. Clear up and post caps of eps 3-4 of QIHM - such a perfect, shippy, gorgeous drama. And Bung Do is such an amazing hero - smart, good, laid-back. Yoo Inna's heroine is wonderful and loveable too.

4. Read Cassandra Clare's latest in Mortal Instruments series, "City of Lost Souls." I eat up that series and the angsty angsty lurve between Clary and Jace with a big spoon. Though I think the premise of CoLS, in which Clary's used-to-think-he-was-her-brother-but-he-wasn't boyfriend gets possessed by her demonic-real-life-brother and there might be make-outs, reaches the levels of insanity not seen since CLAMP or Vampire Knight. Bring it on, people!

4. Start Sherrilyn Kenyon's "Born of Night," the first one in her League series. Love me some space opera, love me some romance, loved the other book in the series I read, and also met the protagonists of this one in the other book and thought they were awesome. The super-tall, super-strong invincible half-human former assassin and tiny dancer gal/daughter of a president that he rescues and who can wind him around her finger is a scenario made for me. Plus, I know Kenyon, h/c is going to be out of this world.

5. Finish Lauren Kate's "Fallen" quartet, at least the three books that are out. I am a sucker for paranormal romance YA (ummm, paranormal romance in general) and got 2/3 through this on my plane ride. Addiction! In Fallen, Luce, our teenage, sent-to-reform-school, seeing creepy visions heroine, finds out that she is one half of a super-doomed, super-punished couple - she keeps reincarnating over and over and over through the centuries only to die at the moment she and her equally punished OTP get together (he is a powerful sort-of-fallen angel and his punishment is to stay alive and remember everything only for it to happen over and over again no matter what he does). They are in their own cdrama! Only this time, she's not been baptized or brought up in any religion, so if she dies, that is the end, no reincarnation or anything. And a lot of supernatural bad guys are interested in that. On plus side, she also didn't die when they got together. Now, if she can only keep staying alive! Anyway, I love it to bits and ship the OTP. The whole thing would make a fun CW show but I am glad it's been left alone because you just know the makers would stick her with bad-boy Cam and not her OTP (see Vampire Diaries, adaptation of...).

6. Sleep. I am so jetlagged.

Proper post with caps coming, but omg so good!!!! Jae Ha manned up in a beyond awesome fashion (and I love it when he is smart and scary, the way he was with that NK politician), we had wonderful Shi Kyung/Princess scenes (omg the hug in the beginning) and, best of all, I love that preview shows the return of HBIC Hang Ah. I was getting way tired of her crying and moping. Wiping the floor with the bad guys is, otoh, just the ticket.

K2H ep 9

Grrr, drama, curse you for making me sniffle.

Both Jae Ha and Hang Ah we're awesome in this ep but the ending fight - the result of Secretary Eun's manipulations (the man must die), the pressure of investigation, and above it all, Hang Ah's insecurity, was brutal. Jae Ha's face at the end - I don't blame him one bit, even leaving aside his temper. Some things you just don't say.

But the thing is, I understand where Hang Ah is coming from. Jae Ha never wavered, not for a moment, and in fact was downright amazing dealing with stuff, but she has never truly processed his shooting her in ep 4 and a lot of it is belated fallout from that, as well as early days and his questionable jokes. You reap what you sow and while he has her heart, he doesn't have her trust yet.

That is why she lashes out (the fact that Secretary lied about what JH did and didn't do and she doesn't know the truth doesn't help).

Ohhhhhh. Poor things.

I am exhausted, so have some caps from eps 7 and 8 without much in the way of comment.

I really loved seeing everyone, especially Jae Ha (these eps really belonged to Lee Seung Gi) coping with the new world.

I still fail to see the necessity of the (implied) sex scene - the emotional climax of the whole episode (let alone that scene) was Jae Ha actually finally allowing himself to break down and crying in Hang Ah's arms, allowing her in closer than anyone else ever. Sex just seemed not necessary at that point - sure, if they were a couple together for a while, who had sex many a time before, it would be fine. But an OTP's first time (and Hang Ah's first time ever?) entirely off-screen, as an afterthought, is kinda bizarre. Plus, having comfort-your-SO sex as a first time is really quite depressing. Ugh. The more I think about it, the less I like the choice. It was wrong for the scene, wrong for the romance, and wrongish for the characters. The only reason I can think of is that they wanted to have a baby in the future for plot reasons or something but still - first of all, I don't like baby plots in thrillers/romances, and second of all, there should have been a better way to get there and have a sex scene that meant something.

(Anyway, enough griping, have some caps) )
