Rewatching City Hunter, The Greatest Love, and the YT Editions of Playful Kiss.

Want to start watching Tree With Deep Roots just to see SJK.

The rest of the time, I'm re-downloading all my fave kdrama osts, kpop, etc., for my Apple devices which I lost after I updated the software to iOS5 (darn you Apple!). I didn't have backup before for all my files so now I'm making sure I have in an external hd (should've done it the first time, I know!). It's tedious work restoring all 3000+ songs and 100+ videos. On the other hand, I'm listening to the new City Hunter OST - The Score (for me, the best kdrama soundtrack of the year) so I'm happy while downloading.

I have 4 younger brothers so they really don't share my drama addiction (though for some reason they watched and loved Meteor Garden which I hated). Anyway, I'm bonding with their girlfriends over kdramas. They currently have my DVDs of PK, MGIAG, SKKS, and DH. Just watched PK YTE with bro#2's gf earlier since she does not have an internet line at their house. Also sharing my love for kdramas are some of my Sunday School students (including the granddaughter of our Pastor) and the sister and niece of former colleagues. I sometimes ask myself if I'm being a bad influence... ;) So most of them know by now what sites to go to to watch current kdramas, where to order DVDs & OSTs, where to download OSTs, and where to read the best recaps --- @DB of course!

I'm watching this old school drama by bae yoo mi (twinkle, twinkle, who are you?) called Happy together. It stars handtowel (who has a speedo scene), jo min soo, lee byung hoon etc. I'm only up to episode 10 but I love the drama. One thing I really love is the direction and the pace of the story. There are so many things that happen off camera that make the story move faster and the things that they actually show have such great impact. They don't use the things that most shows use to stir our emotions. lee byung hoon is so charming- he has kim rae won notes but it feels very much like he's acting.
I'm also watching All In, Bad Guy ( episode 1), and Live in Style. Anyone else watching it? I can't find subs online so far and the korean channel is starting each episode with about 10 minutes missing from the start but I really like it. I'm also watching a few other weekend dramas.

you know like stupid misunderstandings and not saying how you feel etc. It's not that they don't exist in the drama storyline it's just those things aren't the story that is told or they use the time they have really well. This is a 16 episode drama that would be 50 by today's standards.

Leaf - you're my hero. I Just finished TPM like 10 minutes ago. I'm watching Pasta for recapping purposes and I'm about to choose my next drama/dorama/t-drama. Not sure what. i"m thinking of watching Vampire Prosecutor (currently airing) and Sungkyunkwan Scandal (marathon) next. I just have so many little projects that take my time that I can't lways watch all the dramas that fuel them. I'm arranging 2 Kdrama tunes right now and recapping very slowly...and planning on writing spoilery review for TPM. I'm a total fan!

Leaf - real life is over rated. That's why we're drama addicts. Or at least that's what I tell myself. I was babysitting two kids tonight and as soon as they were out, I pulled out my computer to start working on my TPM review........I was typing whilst watching the 4 y/o sleep.

(Side note: These are the only kids I babysit. I work with children with disabilities and one of them has a disability. He's AMAZING. He's actually the reason I was so interested in Shining Inheritance. The boy with autism just totally struck home for me. It was a realistic portrayal for the most part. It was also the reason I had to skip a lot in the show...I couldn't stand the abuses they put him through. I skipped almost a whole episode at one point because I was crying too hard....and that's a huge side note....)

Anyway, I've decided to watch one new (ish) drama and one pre-MNIKSS at the same time at all times to give myself the good and the bad. At least while I'm working. Then when breaks up...go for broke!

I admire you. How can you watch so many things simultaneously? I usually forget which ep I'm on, or I get sidetracked and laze-out. From your list I've only seen SKKS and Over half of Protect the boss. I can't seem to continue watching past ep 11. :( Does the same conflict repeat from hereon? or do we finally get something new to worry about?? How is Ouran HS host club?

Age of Warriors is so good and well written. The characters are a feast to the eyes! Not by looks or anything but by how complex the characters are. It came out in 2003 so the sets don't look as gorgeous as the recent sagueks but the writing makes up for it.

I try, but I think the obsessive compulsive side of me would have a FIT if I didn't watch the show. I can't watch episodes of any shows out of order either. The huge trouble with me and American t.v.

Most are short enough where I dont have to worry about missing episodes...

I watched several hundreds of dramas over the years, but I can only claim to be drama-compulsive (defined by MJP, though I think I might have watched more daily and morning dramas than MJP.).

The event I became drama-compulsive= when I was out of work for 6 months (when stock market hit the bottom). Drama of my life: Immortal YSS.

I just came back from Korea. I met eight of my friends and of course, I was the one who knew the most about the dramas. ;)

I'm still in Malaysia. The community speaks a different language(dialect?) though. I understand most of what they're saying, of course, since I'm part Chinese as well. I'm pretty sure the locals use Cantonese, but I've got no skill in speaking whatsoever.

I feel you. People had been asking if I'm Russian, Korean, Eurasian or Malay, when they look at me. Awesome conversation starter!

Ricky the royal highness -

I'm not Asian, but I look very Spanish and whenever I travel everyone always addresses me in Spanish/French/Italian/Portuguese and looks shocked when I don't respond. Especially in Miami, I get a LOAD of gaping mouths and surprised looks that my parents didn't pass down the Spanish language. (I'm a bit bitter too...) No hablo espagnol. lo siento.

@ Raine - You can still learn the language? It's never too late!

@Raine

Am kinda in the same boat. I actually forgot how to speak my mother-tongue but strangely I can understand it. So this made for incredibly awkward conversations with my grandmas who only knew how to speak in my mother-tongue. However, the rest of my family is fluent. Sounds weird I know and I have been the butt of so many jokes. To remedy this, my parents sent me to a boarding school in a region that predominantly speaks my mother-tongue in the hope of improving my speaking abilities but it didn't work.

*hangs head in shame*

@ Alua - I'm actually learning Spanish and Japanese actively right now...er, independently studying that is. But its still tough when you can't answer fluidly and your accent is good (mine is...which is terrible...cause I cant actually speak...)

@ shiku - You're not the only one. My bff doesn't speak her mother tongue but her sister does. A lot of older siblings around here speak Spanish but the youngers dont. My mother learned Yiddish and her younger sisters didnt. I'm learning Spanish now to catch up with my roots...

I get a lot of "Konnichiwa's or Annyeonghaseyo's" when I'm neither honestly. I'm cool about it. I usually grin and silently bow out to those presumptuous strangers. Or when I'm in a great mood then I'll toss an equivalent one liner back.

Happy Friday everyone!

Finally managed to watch Protect the Boss this week. The first half was awesome. The second half wasn’t nearly as funny but it was still really good.

*************SPOILERY WARNING*****************

It was such a relief to have a chaebol parent (and grandparent) actually like and accept the poor girlfriend!!! And for the poor girlfriend to not take any s*** from the rich snotty women!!! And I liked the fact that neither Ji Heon or his father believe that Eun Seol was the whistle-blower. I freakin’ LOVED the way Ji Heon and Moo Won acted like such boys fighting over a favorite toy. You could tell they had the potential to be bff’s, but their parents’ fighting kept them on opposite teams. And I loved that there wasn’t just verbal sparring, but downright tussles and fistfights LOL. Does that make me a gangster? Oh, and how do I love Myung Ran!!!!!!

If I have any gripe – and I’ve seen this in other dramas – it’s the whole “I’ve got to do something I’ll contact you when it’s over” thing. There was no real justification for Ji Heon NOT to tell Eun Seol his reasons, but he didn’t. Dunno about anyone else, but it would be a heck of a lot easier for me to wait on my boyfriend if I KNEW WHY I had to wait, rather than just being told to wait. Okay, gripe over.

*************END SPOILERY*************************

On another note: I’m looking for recommendations for saeguks that do not have a sucky ending. The only one I’ve watched is SKKS and I LOVED it. I do plan to watch Hong Gil Dong at some point just because it’s a Hong Sisters Drama (even though I know how it ends). I’ve also downloaded and plan to watch: Strongest Chil Woo, Iljimae, Return of Iljimae, and Legend of Hyang Dan. And based on what I’ve read, I’m considering downloading The Princess’s Man. Chuno sounds interesting, and so does The Legend (aka The Legend of the First King’s Four Gods or something like that). Does anyone recommend either of those? Or do they have sucky endings where everyone dies? I already know not to watch Warrior BDS, otherwise I’ll end up having to buy a new laptop cause I’ll probably throw heavy things at it.

So…saeguks with happy endings anyone???

moo seun! I think what makes a good sageuk is that the character has all the important triumphs and dies after completing their task. I think if you accept that your sageuk path will open.
I just saw that episode of ptb last night ( tonight is the finale!) and I was thinking that the vibe is very coffee house in the last paces ( my sister is watching coffee house so I was reading recaps and I noticed that there's a reference to scent of a woman!) errrrr!!!! Oh, your comment about him just telling her- I thought that too last night. What I really love about this drama is these people actually have conversations and the heroine is not taking in some idiot she had to tame at the end for her happy ending. He consciously decided he must become a person she can lean on, and then when he realized he wasn't yet, they separated. I also love that the second lead girl was just a little lonely thing who has become bffs with our lead and that there's no betrayal between the two when eun sol goes to ji hon.

The Princess Man has happy ending from what i read. i have yet to watch the last 2 episodes.

what new drama that everyone's watching right now? i seriously dont know what happen to me with kdrama now. i read recap but none interest me. i want to watch something!

i read that won bin will be back on small screen (he's still deciding), i hope so!! movie is never the same with drama. i want 16hours of won bin LOL! i watched Ahjusshi last week and its super duper awesome. i remember watching Autumn in my heart before and hating it and cursing the lead couple because Wonbin didnt get the girl.

anyway, i'm listening to our puppy's new album now. love it!

Girlfriday,are you the up town girl in his song? i cant believe he even offer himself as a slave. we need to get this boy a girlfriend! love that song anyway.

and this one is lovely, my most favourite one. i'm sure it will be played a lot on 1N2D;

Saeguk: Return of Iljimae is one of the best TV shows I've seen. Period. No sad ending (at least in my estimation).

Protect the Boss: I agree with your take on the "I have to go away" think. Trope contrivance germane to the Kdrama. What are you gonna do? What I loved about this show (which was definitely better and funnier in the early episodes) was that this is the only kdrama couple (of the many, many, many I've watched) that came across as real to me. Their struggles, their interactions... the whole thing just made much more sense to me than others I've seen, and I could relate. Her trepidation in dating her boss and entering into such a family/lifestyle, his complete openness about liking her and then loving her no matter what, their friendship (an actual friendship!), as well as her resentment after he came back in the end. Realistic. Loved it!

For a totally unrealistic boss/subordinate romance, see the j-drama Hotaru no Hikari, seasons 1 and 2. I understand it is supposed to be a comedy, but I seriously felt that if these people were real, I would want them in therapy rather than marriage.
They have separations not once but twice, both times so she can "become a better person for him" (and ends up changing not one iota) and she has the relationship maturity - even after briefly living with someone else (!) of a twelve year old (afraid of being in his bedroom, getting whacked out about the most chaste kiss on the planet, practicing with the most outrageous pucker...). This is supposed to be a mid-twenties career woman and a mid-thirties divorced boss, living in the same house. I don't believe it, not for a second.

Yikes! That sounds exactly like the kind of drama that would make my head explode. Thanks for the heads up!

Agreed! I loved PTB but the whole "I've got to take care of some things" scenario is ridiculous. I hate it. How hard is it to buy a phone card or shoot her an email or poke her on facebook? What's worse is when people go "study abroad" and no one hears from them for two years until they show up back at the airport without notifying anyone. My university was almost over-run with international students and every last one of them was in constant contact with home.

Such annoy plot devices. Tirade over.

Don't say anything, don't say anything! I'm just starting it now and I have NO IDEA what it's about and I'm really happy about that.

Gee - you asked -
"I’m looking for recommendations for saeguks that do not have a sucky ending".

I really didn't know you had started Chuno yet. Sorry :(

Oops, sorry JoAnne - got you mixed up with Stacy! Sometimes these threads get really confusing in the length.

The Princess' Man has a happy (ish) ending. I say -ish because it came off as bittersweet to me, but still so heartwarming ;__; (I'm feeling the urge to rewatch it.)

Hi everyone. Hah. I can't believe I am early for once. I have a whole heap of questions for you guys this week.

How do you withdraw from thinking Korean actors are good looking? That is because I was watching this on TV tonight.

And I thought 'meh' I think Go Soo, Gong Yoo, Hyun Bin, Lee Dong Wook and Lee Sang Woo are cuter.

ck1Oz - I never thought that dude was hot in the first place. The nonAsian guys I always liked I find myself still liking (cellist Zuill Bailey, Michael Weatherly, Mark Harmon (GIBBS, )Matt Damon, Olivier Martinez, Ryan Phillipe (so shoot me), Tyrese, and a bunch of Broadway actors: Adam Pascal, Taye Diggs, Anthony Rapp, Barret Foa).

I could keep going but I'll stop...:D But a LOT of my list are foreign actors. Maybe cause I grew up in Miami where tons of people are foreign? I have no clue.

But Korean actors are hottt!
