More My Princess stills and a teaser is out. The stills look swoonily romantic and the trailer looks funny. MP stars Kim Tae Hee (whom I love and will defend to the death - I think she's gorgeous, has a warm on-screen vibe and great chemistry with costars. If I hear she is in a drama, it's an automatic 'check it out' in my book) as a long-lost Korean princess who only discovers the fact in her mid-20s. It also stars Mousie's sexiest kdrama actor ever, Song Seung Heon, as a diplomat tasked with training her for her new duties (I will take him over Julie Andrews any day!)

Stills, thoughts, and trailer under cut )

It's rather surprising but the two 2011 dramas I am looking forward to the most are both MBC dramas - My Princess and the fusion sageuk The Duo, which is a Prince and the Pauper-like tale of a nobleman and slave sons switched at birth, with Chun Jung Myung playing the protagonist - the aristocrat swapped for a slave, and Han Ji Hye playing his OTP. I hope it will be more Hong Gil Dongian/Chonolike in its approach to class issues and not take the "well, if only everybody stayed in their place, the world would be perfect" - i.e. the inequity is that an aristocrat by blood got to be a slave, not the existence of slavery itself.

In Secret Garden thoughts, I had a bit of a revelation - I think I love SG so much in part because the emotional power in the story is the woman's. Joo Won may be objectively correct when he states that Ra Im is inferior to him in status, wealth or education, but nonethless she has all the power in their relationship. Because he's mad about her, obsessed about her, cannot eat or sleep for thinking of her, but she is not. She is attracted him to him, sure, and is on the cusp of loving him (if he ever shuts his mouth for long enough :P) but she is not there yet. She can walk away and leave him, but he cannot do the same. His line in upcoming ep that if she doesn't want be the Little Mermaid, he's willing to be one, shows that. Ultimately, when push comes to shove, he is going to be willing to take her on any terms she posits. I love it especially because this is unusual in kdramas - usually the women fall in love first. They are both messed-up people but he needs her and she does not need him. Yet.

In conclusion, this still from MP gives me wicked deja vu to East of Eden (the scene with Dong Chul and Grace on their wedding night). Let's hope MP won't end as badly for the OTP!

dangermousie: (Gloria - Dong Ah broken by timescout)
Gloria has given me a rather unhealthy fixation on Lee Chun Hee. Take that, add my effort of trying to refrain from watching eps 33-34 until subs for 35-36 are also out, and sprinkle in my youtube obsession and you get this.

"This" being a MV for some emo kpop song starring LCH. If you ever wanted to see Thugboy in emo scarves sobbing over a woman, this one is for you. (If you want to see scarveless Thugboy sobbing over a woman, just tune in to Gloria).



My crush is so severe I am even tempted by Smile You, a.k.a. previously known as the kdrama Mousie is least likely to touch even if every other entertainment option in the world was on fire. A 50 ep family drama starring The Nemesis, i.e. Lee Min Jung, my least favorite drama actress ever (how badly do I dislike her? Suffice it to say I am probably skipping Midas because she costars and that stars my supreme obsession Jang Hyuk). Well - let me modify this. Not even for LCH will I suffer through that. Not even if he got naked and covered in chocolate. At the same time. Maybe then. The only reason I am even considering this is because he apparently has his own story and OTP. So, kind flisties - can anyone point me towards a direction of a SY guide which would tell me which eps to watch for best LCH action? I made one for East of Eden, for those who only wanted shippiness without sitting through almost 60 eps, so I wonder if that sort of thing exists for SY.

I realized that while I watched it, I never properly posted about Friend Our Legend even though it entered my Top 10. FOL is a criminally underrated drama - the fact that it's a bleak story of innocence thrown away, dissolution of friendship and love, and loss of humanity probably did not help. It is. after all, a story about four male friends (and one special woman) set in the mafia underworld.

Still, it's gorgeously shot, sharply written, and impeccably acted (Hyun Bin is unbelievable in this) and deserves to be better known. I am going to do my little part by doing episode analyses/caps/recaps.

I won't start until Monday and will try to do an ep a day.

But for now, have this gorgeous, general, official FOL MV:

If it sounds well, come right in, come right in, and welcome Yaksha a drama from OCN (the channel that also brought us one of my all-time favorites, Someday) that aired its first episode today.



Yaksha follows a royal bodyguard whose reasons for living are (1) his duty (2) his lover (3) his brother. But when said brother frames and betrays him in order to further his ambition, his life as he's known it is over. He becomes a slave and then a gladiator. Now, he back and he is going to seek revenge.

The look of this is incredible - I love the grim yet gorgeous aesthetic.

Have a few posters and stills )

Have a short teaser.



Gasping for air yet?

So excited.

Btw, withs2 is subbing. So is viikii.
