OMFG, you guys! He's homeless and broke and literally only owns the clothes in his suitcase and his watch. And he sold them to buy her a birthday present.

Impractical but so sweet I just might die.

Of course, she makes him return it. I love Miss Practical to bits.

Caps of scene in question )

Also, Rainie and Wu Zun are so cute together, I swear puppies and rainbows are spontaneously created. OTOH, when they angst, IT SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED.



Other caps of my OTP )

And as a final note, what kind of a girl decides that if a guy didn't want to marry you, you'll wreck his whole life? WTF, crazy secondary girl! (Not as crazy as secondary guy who should be devoured by fire ants, though).

I mean, ep 11 gives us baths of angst, starring Wu Zun and his marvelous arms:








Argh, evil cousin of Wu Zun's character, I hope you die in a fire. Seriously, wtf, psycho! Dude just manipulated the situation to take away not only the company but even the house and is now gloating in WZ's face for being too trusting - i.e. not thinking his family is a pack of two-faced hyenas. DIE! I mean, the rationale isn't that WZ ran the company badly or treated people awfully - nah, it's just that he trusted his family. WTF.

He was about to propose to Rainie, too, and you ruined it! On plus side, it did result in the above-mentioned bath, so it's not all bad.

In case you need more convincing, two shippy scenes from ep 11 - one funny and one touching )

My current/asap twdrama roster is this, Love Keeps Going, Material Queen, Calling for Love, I Do, KO 3an Guo, The X-Family, That Love Comes, Marry Me, Because of You, Bump Off Lover, Roseate Love, In Time With You, Ring Ring Bell, and Material People (though I suppose the latter is a cdrama). Plus a few others. And I feel like rewatching Wish to See You Again. Good Lord.

I believe I may be the only person on my friendlist who has watched Sunshine Angel, the currently-airing twdrama with Wu Zun and Rainie Yang.

YOU GUYS MUST REMEDY IT ASAP!

I have only started it today - but I have watched 9 episodes in one day (!!!!). It takes a few episodes to get going but at some point by ep 4, I realized I was madly in love with this romantic, warm, sweet drama.

The story of a plucky cheerful maid (Rainie) and a reserved, perfectionist CEO with issues (Wu Zun) is nothing that hasn't been done before - in fact, this seems to be a remake of the Successful Story of a Bright Girl kdrama (or so I've been told, haven't seen the kdrama in question myself). But what makes this story a delight are the sharp colors, the fast pace and the out-of-this-world chemistry between Rainie and Wu Zun. It also helps that both have an immensely likeable on-screen vibe and play likeable characters. And, as is de rigeur in twdramas, there are some swoonily romantic moments. The one in the cap above is one of them. My favorite scene so far though is the one where he tells her about his parents dying rescuing him and how he doesn't believe in permanence any more (and OMG, I realize that he went into the water to rescue her despite this triggering his biggest issues).

Btw, she is only a maid for the first half of the drama, if that is an issue...

Will this drama change your life? Likely not. But it's a lovely story about lovely people, and a perfect way to while away a rainy afternoon.

KizunaFS has picked it up. However, I don't believe they released any subs as of yet so the best way to watch it is on youtube, where an awesome user has subbed the first 12 eps so far. Trust me, it's worth it!

Have a MV:



I defy you not to give this wonderfulness a chance after this MV.

I was flipping through To Get Her and got to this.




Oh, I am sniffling like a silly silly fool.

I am definitely due for a rewatch.

Note to self - I need to make Yang and TGH icons. This is getting ridiculous.

I am getting a mad craving to rewatch To Get Her, a twdrama starring Jiro Wang and Rainie Yang. I love TGH so and find it so ridiculously underrated it's criminal.

The story, involving a washed-out former idol who enrolls in a college and his landlady/fellow student - who is a manga-obsessed otaku not terribly interested in or good with people, brims so much with tenderness, with off-beat delicate charm, that I remember tearing up at random odd scenes.

When it came out, TGH took me completely by surprise - with such a 'wacky' premise and Jiro and Rainie as the leads, I was expecting a lot of random faces and OTT but it's a very quiet, understated story with a quirky, indie vibe (sure, there are one or two OTT scenes in the beginning but the bare minimum possible and they disappear entirely as a drama progresses). This is the drama that made me truly fall in love with both Jiro and Rainie. Jiro embues his man-child trying to grow up and cope with the world that changed from under him with so much sweetness, vulnerability, and honesty, that you can't help but love him. Mars is one of those rare drama characters you'd not mind being around in real life. And Rainie is a huge hit-or-miss actress with me (Miss No Good, anyone? *shudder*) but she is luminescent here as an odd girl content in her oddness (there are no make-overs in this drama - she does not become a gregarious, gorgeously-dressed butterfly. She is loved for who she is) who has all these barriers but once you get past them, is infinitely tender and caring.

Mars and Momo together just work. They are a couple not just because the drama pushes them together and tells you to like it, they are a couple because they become each other's best friends, confidantes, soulmates. They take care of each other, they fight, they make up. They are necessary for each other's wellbeing. And oh, they have some ridiculously crackling chemistry. Sometimes I wanted to look away.

And in a way, their love story is so lovely because, like the best twdrama love stories, it's about finding the truth behind the person's masks. Despite their polar opposite images - a washed-out idol is miles away from a dedicated otaku - they are both outsiders trapped by their personas/perceived only for them. Everyone treats Momo as a weird/untoucheable freak without bothering to look at the girl within. And Mars is perceived by everyone around him as having value only for his former celebrity status or maybe being a beefcake/piece-of-meat to play with. While the reality is infinitely more complicated and the two of them find the person hidden within.

OK, enough of my blathering. Have this lovely MV:

"Why do I suddenly have feelings for him, like the ones I do for Prince Kasaba?"

!!!! She has compared him to her favorite manga character. ROFLSQUEE. It's looooooooooooove.



Even more so than when he runs around the park at night in the rain to find her hiding in a pipe and he pulls her up and she just clutches him, crying and he just looks thunderstruck and sort of just stands there and then slowly puts his arm around her and rather prosaically tells her "let's get an umbrella." And then buys her dinner and fusses that she is eating too fast or that she went out in the rain when she had a cold recently. MMMMM.

Caps from that scene )

Guys, you have no idea how ridiculously happy To Get Her makes me. Or how many times I've rewatched the scene of Momo in the pipe in the park and Mars coming to get her. *satiated shipper squee* They are such awesome adorable dorks! And he takes such good care of her despite denying that it's anything special to the death and, hey, it's only fair, because she took such good care of him earlier and helped him out. I love stories where the OTP are actually functional together and friends and good to and with each other - Taiwanese dramas are awesome at that.
