Out of all the airing kdramas, the one that I like the most and the one that I think is the best is Can You Hear My Heart. There is something about it that really draws me in. The drama it reminds me most of is Spring Waltz - the same clean, spring visual palette and the same vibe - some really dark topics wrapped in a gorgeous and somehow hopeful package. It has made me laugh and it has made me cry. I could watch it forever.

Some caps and thoughts, eps 7-9 )

Cannot wait to watch more.

So, I checked out the raw of the first ep of Yaksha to see if it was my thing at all. I was quite looking forward to it because I love period revenge stories, because I've seen comments about it being like 300 (sometimes I love meaningful and smart dramas. Sometimes I just want to watch buff guys bathe in a shower of blood). Plus, the leading guy is hot:



I knew it was a midnight cable show with a 19+ rating



But I didn't think much about it. Friend Our Legend was 19 and even unblurred was not particularly startling. The only other OCN drama I've ever seen was the wonderful Someday and that didn't show anything you couldn't show on the main network except for smoking.

Oh, how wrong I was.

And of course, my other reason for my curiosity was to see Seo Do Young, Winner of Mousie's Heart as emo teddybear pianist in my favorite kdrama romance Spring Waltz, play the baddy.

Ummm.

Ummmmmmmmmmm.

Be careful what you wish for.

NSFW caps behind the cut )

As to whether Yaksha is my thing, I'll have to figure it out once the subs are out. If I ever get over my shock, that is.

1. Much as I loved Jeremy in ep 8 and much as Shin Woo was his own awesome self (my love for Minam goes without saying), if there is anything more adorable than jealous Tae Kyung, I have yet to see it. (Also - the scene with the leaves!!!!)

2. What with You're Beautiful, I have had no chance to watch much of ep 3 of Tamra the Island but I am firmly convinced I am 5 years old because the '**** you' joke had me in stitches - I have an awful sense of humor. Also I got to the point where Park Kyu blackmails Beo Jin into doing his chores (by threatening to reveal William's presence). It's hilarious and even understandable, but rather jerkish - I eagerly anticipate his suffering over her. He has it coming.

Also, am possibly culturally insensitive or whatever but every time I see his hat, I crack up.



3. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ambergold to leading me to this awesome Spring Waltz MV. SW remains my favorite romantic kdrama of all time.



4. My IRIS withdrawal is driving me mad.

I HATE HIM DIE BURN DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE HATE

Who am I this rabid about? Is it a psycho Secondary Guy, an Evil Parent, or a Scary Stepsibling?

No. Not all.

It's the lead of Brilliant Legacy (otherwise known as 'Shining Inehritance').

I want to BOIL HIM IN OIL. Or maybe his Grandma's beef soup.

I have no problem with the drama itself at all - I am enjoying it immensely - it doesn't intend us to take Hwan (the hero) for anything but a spoiled, rotten, violent jerk.

But Hwan himself? I hate with visceral hate I haven't experienced since happy happy days of Shin's parents or My Girl's Tennis Girl.

All he did (in the first two eps, only, mind you):

* Make a total stranger pay his bar tab, in order for her to get back her bag that he took by accident
*Be snobby, snooty, violent, and jerkish to anyone - from a waitress who he doesn't feel like bothering to talk to so just signals like to a retarded deaf mute to a manager of a place he's been ordered to work at - he does nothing asking him 'do you know who I am?' and when the guy insisted he do his job, Hwan punched him in the face
* Awful to his family - they are worried where he is (he just got back from US) - too bad, he'd just party and ignore any calls

And that does not even start on what he did to the heroine - dragging her around violently (thankfully she punched him out), refusing to give her bag back thus leading to her not being easily found and missing being able to look at her father one last time before he is cremated and later dragging her again and humiliating her in public and during all of it, stepping on her phone thus her lost autistic brother can't contact her.

Oddly enough, the two worst, unforgivable things he did are not really, objectively, the worst - he was being a jerk about the bag but he did intend to return it and he had no idea her father died, and the phone thing was an accident and he had no idea the whole thing with her brother would happen. But even if you take that into account, he is still a classist, shallow, violent, useless jerk who thinks of nothing and nobody else but himself.

I hope he has to crawl over broken glass while being set on fire before the heroine even considers looking at him.

The last time I hated a male lead so much was years years ago, when I first discovered Hana Yori Dango. Hwan and Domyouji should hang out (of course, I eventually ended up loving Domyouji so who knows how I will end up feeling about Hwan).

Part of the reason I am so interested in this drama (in addition to the plot being interesting and Han Hyo Joo my huge huge girlcrush) is I have seen Hwan hate all over my LJ in the early eps and now (I think 20 eps are out) I see my flist collectively swooning over the Hwan/Eun Sung ship and I am just dying to find out how on earth that could happen!

ETA1: Ahahahahaaaaaa - I was watching Brilliant Legacy on viikii and for some reason the link for ep 2 jumped from that ep to end of ep 20 (!!!!). I didn't realize it for a minute or so and it was incredibly jarring - I mean, all of a sudden Hwan seemed like a human being!

ETA2: I must be dense, why did Stepmonster abandon autistic brother instead of calling Eun Sung to pick him up? I hope she burns in hell.

ETA3: You know what is so weird? Hwan is an incredible thoughtless bastard to every single person in his life except for Secondary Girl. And I can't even use the excuse that he's in love with her, he is not - it's sort of a little sister thing. He is almost human with her and that little flashback to their high school day made me boggle-boggle-boggle: I mean, he didn't know who she was and he rescued her from bullies and then piggybacked her home. I am not sure what boggled me more - the demonstration that there is something human in Hwan after all or the fact that he picked Secondary Girl out of this whole world to be nice to - he does not normally strike me as a defender of orphans. Hmmmm.

ETA4: Please tell me Hwan gets to suffer for the hell he put Eun Sung through in eps 1-2 - her desperation at having lost her little brother is so horrible to watch.

ETA5: It's funny, Spring Waltz imprinted on me so much that I keep expecting Woobie Pianist to show up and rescue Eun Sung from her situation - and then they can cuddle and make musical babies. Ahhhh, Spring Waltz = LOVE.

ETA6: You know, in some ways it's a much better Korean take on Boys over Flowers than the kdrama adaptation of BOF itself was. Hwan is certainly more of a Domyouji that poor Jun Pyo was ever allowed to be :P

ETA7: The Secondary Guy helps out at a soup kitchen. You know who was the last kdrama guy to do so? Yes, that's right - the serial killer lawyer in Mawang :D

Finished Spring Waltz. What will I fixate on now?

I adored the first 18 and a half eps and loved the sweet ending, but the ep or so in-between I was meh about. It got too kdramaish not in an excellent way.

Still, the OTP was awesome, the design gorgeous etc etc etc...It's definitely going on my favorites list.

Spoilery comments )

Now I need another icy woobie/spunky girl romance. Someone recommend? PLEASE?

Hmmm, maybe I'll just rewatch that ultimate bad boy/good gal kdrama All In. I mean, he is an ex-convict and she is an ex-nun. Mmmm, I love this MV:



I never really metaed about it properly because I gulped it down in 3 days on the way to Italy and at jet-lagged nights. But suffice it to say I love it and not just because of the insane leading couple chemistry.

Hmmm. I think I will rewatch. Or at least cap the sex scene :D

Bwahahahahaaaa...apparently two fashion-themed upcoming dramas Style and Magazine Allo are wrangling about plagiatrism and copycatting and God-knows-what. (The former is claiming the latter is stealing...)

Ehhh, I couldn't care less if they both air or neither - I'd rather watch a drama about boils. The only way a fashion-themed show would be palatable to me would be if it was run by an angsty set of stepsiblings secretly in love with each other. And maybe not even then, unless the male half of the stepsibling duo liked to angst in the shower and run around shirtless in the streets.

Plus, according to dramabeans (where I got all these nuggets), Style would be going head to head with Swallow the Sun and Triple. I am madly excited for both (StS more than Triple: it has the cast/production team I love and a topic that is a narrative kink, while Triple is exciting but I still am upset that Kang Ji Hwan isn't doing it any more. I am not familiar with Lee Jung Jae at all even if he is famous...Still, PD of Coffee Prince, Yoon Kye Sang and figure-skating, even if it looks like less focus on figure-skating than I initially hoped for, so still pretty good.)

So yeah - hahahahahahaa.

In Spring Waltz news, this drama is total addictive crack. One thing that I am immensely amused by, however - the Psycho Secondary Girl keeps trying to blackmail Hero (not very successfully as he doesn't give a damn) and his adoptive parents (much more successfully) with revealing his backstory unless they let her marry him. This elicits a total WTF from me! First off, it's not as if he murdered someone as a backstory. He got illegally adopted as a 10-yr-old (i.e. small child!) by some crazy people. I can't see how that is his fault and thus I don't think he is blackmailable. But even if it is scandalous or whatever, why does it matter? He is not a Korean pop idol with a squeaky clean image, he is a classical pianist! Have you seen some of the nutcases that are famous classical pianists? There is this really famous Polish one who travels with his own piano and recently interrupted a concert in New York to give a lengthy anti-American diatribe and then continued his tour. There is the guy on whom Shine was based who was a schitzophrenic. Etcetcetc. As long as a classical musician is good, nobody cares if they have a problematic background or personality, short of them being a criminal and thus in jail. Even in the unlikely event Korean lovers of classical music are different from the rest of the world, come on! Korea must be a teeny-tiny classical music market. He won't lose a thing - I mean, are you telling me people in Austria, UK, France, US or wherever else would care and not go to his concerts because he was illegally adopted or his birth father was a crook? Bwahahahahahaaaaaaaa.

I do love how he is completely matter-of-fact about not marrying Psycho Girl. They throw an engagement party? He shows up with Heroine and announces she is the one he loves. They plan a wedding and even in the midst of his breakdown he tells them (repeatedly) he is not going through with the wedding (clear corrolary being he ain't going to participate but if they are insane and want to plan a groomless wedding, go ahead). I really wish Boys Over Flowers' gutless wonder Gu Jun Pyo had about a tenth of this emo fragile pianist's spine.

Bwahahahahaaaa...apparently two fashion-themed upcoming dramas Style and Magazine Allo are wrangling about plagiatrism and copycatting and God-knows-what. (The former is claiming the latter is stealing...)

Ehhh, I couldn't care less if they both air or neither - I'd rather watch a drama about boils. The only way a fashion-themed show would be palatable to me would be if it was run by an angsty set of stepsiblings secretly in love with each other. And maybe not even then, unless the male half of the stepsibling duo liked to angst in the shower and run around shirtless in the streets.

Plus, according to dramabeans (where I got all these nuggets), Style would be going head to head with Swallow the Sun and Triple. I am madly excited for both (StS more than Triple: it has the cast/production team I love and a topic that is a narrative kink, while Triple is exciting but I still am upset that Kang Ji Hwan isn't doing it any more. I am not familiar with Lee Jung Jae at all even if he is famous...Still, PD of Coffee Prince, Yoon Kye Sang and figure-skating, even if it looks like less focus on figure-skating than I initially hoped for, so still pretty good.)

So yeah - hahahahahahaa.

In Spring Waltz news, this drama is total addictive crack. One thing that I am immensely amused by, however - the Psycho Secondary Girl keeps trying to blackmail Hero (not very successfully as he doesn't give a damn) and his adoptive parents (much more successfully) with revealing his backstory unless they let her marry him. This elicits a total WTF from me! First off, it's not as if he murdered someone as a backstory. He got illegally adopted as a 10-yr-old (i.e. small child!) by some crazy people. I can't see how that is his fault and thus I don't think he is blackmailable. But even if it is scandalous or whatever, why does it matter? He is not a Korean pop idol with a squeaky clean image, he is a classical pianist! Have you seen some of the nutcases that are famous classical pianists? There is this really famous Polish one who travels with his own piano and recently interrupted a concert in New York to give a lengthy anti-American diatribe and then continued his tour. There is the guy on whom Shine was based who was a schitzophrenic. Etcetcetc. As long as a classical musician is good, nobody cares if they have a problematic background or personality, short of them being a criminal and thus in jail. Even in the unlikely event Korean lovers of classical music are different from the rest of the world, come on! Korea must be a teeny-tiny classical music market. He won't lose a thing - I mean, are you telling me people in Austria, UK, France, US or wherever else would care and not go to his concerts because he was illegally adopted or his birth father was a crook? Bwahahahahahaaaaaaaa.

I do love how he is completely matter-of-fact about not marrying Psycho Girl. They throw an engagement party? He shows up with Heroine and announces she is the one he loves. They plan a wedding and even in the midst of his breakdown he tells them (repeatedly) he is not going through with the wedding (clear corrolary being he ain't going to participate but if they are insane and want to plan a groomless wedding, go ahead). I really wish Boys Over Flowers' gutless wonder Gu Jun Pyo had about a tenth of this emo fragile pianist's spine.

HE WENT DOWN ON HIS KNEES IN FRONT OF HER.

begging forgiveness

and sobbing he cannot live without her

*brb dying*

...

...

Nope, still am recovering.

There was also an awesome scene later where he was crying for her in his sleep over and over and she couldn't help it, she came in and stroked his face, and there was waking up and clutching and ILYing. Mmmmm. MMMMMM.

And later desperate running and hugging and just...GUUUH. Spring Waltz, you spoil me so!

And no, she has not taken him back yet, even after all that. Phillip needs to get with the program and let Eun-Young know what Jae-Ha let slip about stuff that happened 15 yrs back. I can see why Jae Ha thinks that wouldn't make any difference or make him more worthy of forgiveness (plus, saying "well, yeah, my dad wrecked your life and I was indirectly responsible, but I sold myself to crazy evil people so you could have surgery you needed" would sound sorta tacky) but I bet Eun-Young would think very differently. I mean, he was a little kid and he literally gave up his life for her.

ETA: I really wish his adoptive mother would burn in a big big bonfire. Ugh.

ETA2: Never did I use a more appropriate icon :)
