I am watching the cop drama Tokyo Dogs for the plot:



Intellectually complex plot.



How I love plot.



Enter here for more delicious and non-spoilery plot )

Ahhhh, plot.

I can't say I am enamoured of Hiro's character - between him and Oguri Shun, they have one brain, and it's not a sharing situation - but I don't hate him, and Hiro looks scrumptuous too (not as much as Shun, but then I am incredibly biased). As to Shun? OMG. And Yoshitaka Yuriko = girlcrush.

In conclusion - I still can't believe I discovered Japanese leading man who actually eats!

Take one serious cop motivated by vengeance and one flaky goofball cop. Add in a mysterious woman with amnesia who may hold the key to their crime syndicate investigation. You get Tokyo Dogs.

This is how I can sum up my thoughts on the first ep:

A. Ahhhh! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! Kairi (Yoshitaka Yuriko, I mean :P) is in Tokyo Dogs as Oguri Shun's OTP! *squees madly* Is she working her way through the F4 members or what?



B. This is the first time ever I found Mizushima Hiro attractive



C. Most important: OGURI SHUN. My reason for watching. I love him as the serious driven cop. Competence = sexy. Not to mention, he is a rare Japanese actor who (a) looks masculine and (b) seems to have regular meals.



I ship them already:



It's fun. Not earthbreaking or anything but fun. A bit too goofy but by jdrama standards that's pretty mild.

Once I finish Love Shuffle tonight, it's off to watch Tokyo Dogs. Let's see how good it is. I don't care for Mitzushima Hiro as an actor (though I think he is awesome in real life - bizarre, I know) but I adore Oguri Shun to bits. Plus, sexy cops are always good. Also, Strawberry on Shortcake because it's written (as I just found out) by the Pride/Love Shuffle/Bara No Nai Hanaya guy. All that and Takizawa Hideaki and Fukada Kyoko as stepsiblings who might like each other and an ensemble cast? I am set. (I also want to see if Utsukushii Hito by the same writer has been subbed - it's about a plastic surgeon who makes a woman who asks for any new face to hide from her abusive husband into a dead ringer for his beloved dead wife - right up my alley).

I think my viewing of You're Beautiful is on-hold indefinitely. I was getting more and more fed-up with the heroine already and then Love Shuffle put the final nail in the coffin - having to go from a story with four different, compelling, strong in diverse ways women to a story with a moronic helpless heroine is just - I can't do it. Maybe I'll finish it some other time.

As of 9 eps into Love Shuffle, the characters I love (in no order except that Kei is my favorite) are Kei, Airu, Ojiro, Kairi and Yukichi. I like Mei and Reiko. As for Masato - I am not telling because I am worried if I do he'll come for me at night :)

Oh, and apparently Wallflower is going to be made into a jdrama. I am skeptical of the outcome seeing the only shoujo manga adaptation jdrama I ever liked was Hanadan, but we live in hope...

1. Episode 3 of JIN was wonderful. But when is that drama not?

Unspoilery caps here )

Now I am about to watch ep 4. EEE!

2. Speaking of jdramas, Tokyo Dogs y/n? How is it?

3.I have watched ep 12 of You're Beautiful and the last two scenes (starting when Tae Kyung finds out about pignose meaning and realizes Minam likes him and leading to his uniquely TaeKyungian confession to her) were adorable. So was the Marie Antoinette scene (God, I love Tae Kyung). But oh, my irritation with Minam grows and grows - I wonder how on earth she manages to get dressed in the morning without help, seeing how helpless and dimwitted she is, needing to be rescued from situations a 5-year-old can extricate herself from (the thing with the medicine this ep - really, drama? REALLY?). Her lack of backbone is also severely irritating - meekness is one virtue she has in overabundance. If the meek shall inherit the earth, Minam is due for a whole galaxy.

4. I love my Kindle (on which I get a lot of questions and comments from random people, including fellow commuters, waiters, and tourists) every day. Latest thing I am reading on it is Nickel and Dimed which I do not care for as I find the author intellectually both lazy and dishonest. Lady, I've been poor, on-welfare poor even - what you are doing ain't it - not only can I think of about 10 ways to save money none of which she follows only to then complain about untenability (Geez, you'd have more money to live on if you bought your clothes at Goodwill or charities, lived in a group home, and took furnishings from garbage - either commit to your freaking experiment or do not. There is one scene that made me livid where she decides not to do telemarketing because of personality incompatibility. Bloody ha! They used to pay $10/hour for it because of people dealing with stress - you are NOT doomed to work %6/hr dishwashing job, and another when she doesn't apply for a clerical job because she thinks she can't afford 5 businessy outfits - well, of course not, she bought a $30 of slacks somewhere for work - when you are broke, go to fucking charity or a thrift store or Goodwill), but her "I am slumming it" attitude makes me sick, as is her lack of discussions for built-in progressions in minimum-wage jobs), but it's a good read because it makes me think about various topics, even if only to disagree vehemently. I found the book pretty damn insulting.

5. I am tempted to watch Princess Lulu because pre-Last Scandal/IRIS Jung Joon Ho is the male lead (and the female lead is Kim Jung Eun (Lovers), whom I like). I've heard it was a trainwreck though - so yes or no on the watching? Let me explain - seeing my obsession with JJH it would have to be truly spectacularly awful for me to skip.



6. Apparently Lee Seon Gyun (Coffee Prince, Triple etc) and Gong Hyo Jin (Hello Teacher, Thank You), two of my huge favorites, are starring in a drama which is going to air after Queen Seon Deok. YES!!!! I adore GHJ to bits and ditto for LSG (finally, a leading role!)

7. Finally, the most important item. WITHS2 released VIA subs for IRIS ep 8. Guess who is a VIA member?????? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

1. I watched Orthros No Inu ep 6 yesterday, which was as cheery as walking in a graveyeard on a rainy day. Ep 7 promises more of the same.

You know, even though I can see the flaws in acting and writing with this show, I like it because the concept is so freaking interesting.

2. Trailer for Oguri Shun's (and Mizushima Hiro's, if he is your thing) new drama, Tokyo Dogs is out.



3. I tried to order Korean channels via international package from my satellite provider - the number to call switches automantically into Korean which is a problem. The 'normal', English-speaking clerk was highly puzzled by my bizarre request (i.e. calling them instead as I could not speak the language) but was helpful. Sadly, their transfer system is down so must try another day. Suckily, they have every channel except for KBS which is what I really want (IRIS! Chuno!). Oh well.

4. aja-aja.com seems to have disappeared entirely - everything is access denied, with no 'donation' buttons any more. R.I.P. d-addicts thread for this was ridiculously entertaining, I must admit.
