Sure did. Got to do some fun things, eat some food I couldn't even pronounce, and touch Alan Rickman!!!

Now I'm just settling down and writing a romance novella starring some of our regulars here in OTLand.

Finished all three "Hunger Games" books, "White Christmas", and "Dream of 400 Years".

All caught up on PdPd, CoW, and OB.

Downloaded Sun/Moon/Touchy/Feely for my future viewing pleasure.

How have you been?

Sorry JoAnne, missed that one - I guess I wanted to savor the moment.

@ Sethe - I'm gonna try and incorporate a bunch of regulars, including a bar called Bourbon's, where everyone hangs at the end of a day. Plus intrigues galore!

Yay!!!! A Bar of regulars sound awesome!! Are they the people who say witty intelligent things from the sidelines? :D

@ Leaf -

I think so.

Still working on some of the outline, as I usually do my research and then start writing the story. This one sprang, Athena-like, from OT # 223, so it's not as put together as I like. It's been a lot of fun so far, especially the research.

Kuching is apparently a city that celebrates all things feline, so I'm hoping to add some cat elements (but not part of the pub menu, I promise!).

Well,Cab, it wasn't like I rubbed his naked chest or stole a few hairs off his fluffy locks. Wasn't trying to make a Polyjuice Potion LOL.

He really is a soft-spoken, gracious guy in real life, which is wild considering some of the evil roles he's taken on - Robin Hood comes to mind, Hans in Die Hard, etc. etc.
And he is like, 60-something, I think!

Sexiness has no age limit. We should totally make a polyjuice potion with alan rickman's hair. Why didn't I think of that earlier?

This is why I'm SOOOO glad I'm OCD when it comes to my dramas. I download and then copy to an external hard drive. I usually dl both SD and HD versions when available, because I'm an HD ho but some of the people I share dramas with have older PCs or laptops that won't handle HD videos. Once I've watched a drama, I burn them to dvd. I even make labels for them :)

I also hard-sub dramas for my mother to watch. We have a blu-ray player that plays most video formats, including xvid avi and mkv, and it will also show srt sub files - but they are way to tiny for my mother to see, so I hardsub them with larger fonts. The hardsubs also get burned to dvd and fancied up with a pretty label :)

I don't mind using torrents, but MyAsianCinema and AM-Addiction often had versions I couldn't find elsewhere. Not to mention that MAC had tons of older and more obscure stuff that there were no torrents for. If necessary, I'll learn how to use clubbox, or any other method folks want to use to share dramas.

What I'm curious about right now is the Korean channels package that can be subscribed to through Dish or other satellite services. I'm not sure what channels are available. But it could become an alternative to acquiring some dramas, even if they air later than they do in Korea. Anyone here subscribe to these channels and can tell me more about them?

Stacy, good to see I'm not the only 'hoarder' here... I've been torrenting for ages and have THREE 500 GB hard drives filled with dramas and movies and specials and OSTs and... well, you name it, I've probably got it going back to around 2004. I'm hoping that once the dust settles on this whole situation that I'll be able to give back to the community that has fueled my dorama addictions for so many years.

Still, it was a dark day in history. Our grandchildren will be asking us, "Where were you when Megaupload was closed down?" And I will probably answer, "Huddled in a corner, softly weeping..."

@cabbage, you can find asian dramas at d-addicts.com (torrent). Or soompi.com also has it, just go to the forum, every drama has its own thread, and they usually upload the torrent link.

I get the Korean package on Verizon FIOS - it has SBS and MBC (also Yonhap News and something else...like a Christian station) - they only show about 1/2 the shows with subtitles, usually the dramas. The shows lag Korea by anywhere between 3 and 6 weeks, although they also show older shows a lot - Coffee Prince tends to run once a year or so. Also the subs....yeah, sometimes not the best. Tree With Deep Roots just ended, and lets just say that the subs were. Well. Inappropriate might be the best term. I have a particular bone to pick with subtitles that take someone talking formally to the King and translate it as informal English - "Yes, Your Majesty" does not equal "Oh, sure." Just drives me nuts.

We used to get KBS in that package, but it swapped out to MBC over a year ago.

Required fields are marked *

I was actually thinking of getting the Korean package as it is available on direct tv (and I am a subscriber). They have 2 different packages but the core is SBS, MBC and YTN. Am not sure about the subtitling.

However, as I watch a lot of shows on KBS2, I decided against it. Instead, I am using the iOnAirTV site which provides access to all major channels (KBS2, SBS, MBC, etc.) as well as the cable channels (Channel A, JTBC, etc.). I watched Moon Embracing the Sun live on it on Thursday and used the English close captioning (which at least provided me with more details that just watching the raw, while I wait for recaps and subbed episodes). Not sure how many shows are close- captioned but I am going to check out OB this week and see if close captioning is available.

Sigh... I just wish iOnAirTV would get Channel A (for BVS) and Chosun TV (for Yoo Seung Ho's "Operation Proposal" starting on 8 February) out of beta testing so those channels could stream live here in California. I keep getting that annoying "coming soon" title card whenever I pull up the main site page. GRRR!!

Patience... must exercise large amounts of patience... ::twiddling thumbs:: WAAAAAAH!! WANT NOW!!!

I live in Illinois wand was able to tune into both of those channels, so not sure what is going on. I caught a piece of the Color of Woman rerun on Channel A and some sort of talk show on Chosun TV (and that was yesterday).

*Chicago ex-pat waves at the Illinois gal* I read on their FAQ that certain streams were not available in all areas at present, but that everything will officially go live everywhere as of 1 February. And every now and again, I do see 3-4 minute snippets from the cable channels... but then they fuzz out to the "coming soon" screen.

So I just sit there at my desk and keep refreshing the page over and over and over... kinda like I'm doing in the OT today... :)

Wow, ionair looks interesting.

It worked great for Ojjakyo Brothers as well which aired over the weekend. I think it was about 75% accurate.

Now if only I can get something similar for Taiwanese TV, I would be all set.

0

Based on comments by users over at another blog (one that follows Ojjakyo Brthers), they were able to use the site and close captioning feature even outside of the US. I know for a fact that one person is based in Austrailia and another was based in England. So much more people "understood" Korean using it so the discussion that was going on while streaming was much better and of course, we were able to help those who could not stream and were waiting anxiously for the recaps. Followers of OB tend to be obsessive. Still need the recaps of course (because it is not totally accurate and recapper gave us non-Korean cultural perspectives that are not apparent to us.)

Wild Romance:

So, we finally get to see Kang Jong Hee, the ex-girlfriend Mu-yeol has been pining for, and I disappointed. Not by the acting or actress because I don't care so much about that right now - by the way, I would not have known this was an SNSD member until I went on youtube and there was a spazz-fest going on by her fans. I was building up this image in my head that it would a very regal woman who pretty much commands attention. She would be mature and at the same time sassy and full of personality. I was looking forward to a Kang Jong-hee that would make me jealous. And than we got a character who was childish at best, and all I could think was: Eun-jae, she's not worth getting jealous over. I feel Eun-jae should be like Jane Eyre who was never jealous of Blanche Ingram because, well, beautiful on the outside, but not much there on the inside. And Eun-jae straightened her hair. Sad day. But at least they made a believable enough reason why she changed it. I'm not a fan of the change, and I especially hate that Mu-yeol lost his 'stache. I actually found him more attractive with it than without. And Dad looked waaaaay better with the beard too. Sigh. Changes all around.

Fermentation Family:

I can't wait to watch this week's episodes. GAH! They kissed! The show is moving along quite nicely and I'm loving it. But... they KISSED! And it was one awesome kiss. <3 <3 <3

Happy Friday Everyone. I gave up alcohol a couple of weeks ago, so my Fridays haven't been the same. But it just cuts into my money you know. SO I figured I can go without for now..... Unless someone else buys. XD

You know it was pretty interesting that they made Jessica/Kang Jong-hee have bipolar disorder. I'm not sure if that's supposed to make people feel sorry for her, or scared of her. However, they had to figure out some reason that she broke up with Mu-yeol without making him hate her too much. Blame it on her condition, right?

As for the changes in hair (facial and head), they kind of all implied that the fact they were changing their styles is because it was Christmas, and if you start something on Christmas it will be successful. In this case Mu-Yeol wants to get a new start with baseball, and also with Jong-hee. Eun-jae's father wants a new start with this woman he's seeing (I don't know if it's her mom or not), and Eun-jae herself said to Mu-yeol that the reason she wore lipstick is because it was Christmas (when she went to his house to eat dinner -- I know her hairstyle change was before that part).

I'm expecting her to separate from Mu-yeol because there is no way she can work for him without difficulty. She would be miserable. I know what you mean about jealousy on her part, but even she had to admit to Mu-yeol that Jong-hee was pretty/nice/had a good style/etc.
I'm not sure if she is jealous of Jong-hee (and her pretty look, style, personality) per se, but rather the fact that Mu-yeol shows attention to her -- the kind of attention that Eun-jae wants from him. I am eager to see what Mu-yeol thinks about Eun-jae's confession, though. I'm eager to know how that will affect him, especially since Jong-hee is in the show for the rest of the episodes.

I agree with you about Jong-hee -- I thought they would pick someone more like Soo-young's age, but they picked Jessica, who in reality is a little more than 10 years younger than LDW, hence making her look more like a teenager compared to him. Seeing how Mu-yeol acts around Jong-hee, though, you can see he's definitely re-living his college time feelings for her.

Everyone is saying they changed for Christmas, but we all know they changed because of a crush. And I was wondering if that was Eun-jae's mom that the Dad was meeting. It would be sad if it is.

I think you're right that Eun-jae is jealous that Muyeol gives Jonghee so much attention, but my bet is also that Eun-jae wishes she were more like Jonghee and less like, well, Eun-jae. Which is sad, since I may find Eun-jae petty and childish, but she definitely skews more into the mature territory and I like her for it. Ack. The only thing I'm happy about Jonghee being as childish as she is is that we're seeing what Muyeol fell in love with in college - a childish girl - and we can only hope he moves on from this crush soon. I too can't wait until we find out what Muyeol will do with the confession.

Required fields are marked *

You're right about the Christmas/crush thing. Eun-jae is not the only one who wants to change their appearance for someone they like. Even though we're disappointed that Eun-jae wants to change her looks to attract Mu-yeol, are we as disappointed that Mu-yeol and her dad want to change their respective looks for their crushes? It doesn't seem like it. When they do it, it's more disarming, but almost cute/sweet.

Re: Eun-jae wanting to be more like Jong-hee:

I think Mu-yeol is partly to blame for that because he keeps saying that she isn't a woman. He only said she was a woman that time in the gym because he wanted an answer to his question and she was like, how can you ask me that. You don't even think I'm a woman." (Or something to that effect) Also, he laughed at her when she told him the story about how her first boyfriend dumped her because she showed her strength in beating up those dudes that tried to rob him. Mu-yeol said guys would get embarrassed because of it, which is what happened with her ex. If she ever wanted to attract Mu-yeol, he's sending off the signal that she should be "less Eun-jae" and more "woman", which, I also think, is a little sad. I hope, that as time passes, he will come to like her more for who she really is, and not because she's trying to be more girly. I wonder, though, if not her looks, or her physical strength, what would be the thing that gets Mu-yeol to see her in a different light? Hmm...

Actually, I'm sad that dad and Muyeol lost facial hair. But because I'm in this for Eunjae, I'm more invested in everything she does and what happens to her. Yes, Muyeol is to blame for some of Eunjae's current insecurities right now. I want Eunjae to be the kind of person who's confident in who she is, but I understand and find it realistic when the first crush she's had in a while finds her more of a guy than a woman. I also hope that when Muyeol likes Eunjae in return, he'll make up for all those mean comments he made about her being more of a dude than a dudette. I want Eunjae to get payback Kdramaverse. Payback. Heh.

*find it realistic when the first crush she’s had in a while finds her more of a guy than a woman and that causes her to feel uncomfortable with who she is

I really hope they don't go full Cinderella with Eunjae. If he finally starts seeing her as a woman after she changes appearance, then I'll give up on the thin strings of hope I have for his character.
All the sympathy gazes when she was weepy-weepy-dependence ticked me off. If it's a "prince saves poor girl" kind of drama, it doesn't bother me as much, but I think it betrays what this drama is about.

And there's been a shameful lack of Director Kim this week.

0

Amen Cabbage. I'm willing to forgive this drama for letting Eunjae fall victim to the need to change my hairstyle and wear lipstick thing. She's entitled. But if they make Muyeol fall in love with her after being slapped in the face with outright femininity and saves her in some hero-damsel way, than I'd be pissed. She should be the one doing the saving. Eunjae IS the bodyguard afterall.

For those who love food dramas like FF, there is a new J dorama " Hungry ". I've seen 2 eps already. It's like a mix of FBRS, Veggie Store plus a pinch of Ratatouille. Like it !
I've noticed something funny about FF : Ep12 was quite Padamish : Fishing village, sunset at the sea and warm hug to chase the cold. For a moment i was like ??? Crossover ? I just love both... :)

Hungry (Japanese Drama)

Description: Mukai is taking on the role of Eisuke, a former bassist of a rock band who gave up his music dreams to carry on the tradition of his family?s French restaurant. The show will involve a love triangle as Kuninaka and Takimoto play rivals for Eisuke?s heart. Kuninaka has been cast as Eisuke?s older girlfriend Maria, who works at a bank. She is shocked to learn that Mukai has abandoned his music to devote himself to the restaurant, leading her to uncertainty about their relationship. Takimoto?s character is a 20-year-old college student named Chie who comes from a farming family. Although she initially had a bad impression of Eisuke, she begins to develop feelings for him after tasting his cooking. SMAP?s Inagaki will play Tokio, the owner of a competing French restaurant. In the past, he was fond of the restaurant that Eisuke?s mother ran, but after she passed away, he deceived Eisuke?s father and bought out the restaurant?s chefs and staff. Knowing of Eisuke?s ability as a chef, Tokio views him as a rival. Eisuke?s friends, who were part of his band ROCKHEAD, are being played by Tsukamoto (guitarist) and Miura (vocalist). Both of them help Eisuke with his restaurant.

I was neither disappointed nor intrigued. She just seems like the average ex that's overly gorgeous compared to the plain-Jane heroine.

I haven't yet watched ep. 8 so I have only seen her come in and do that exaggerated hug-jump-on-you (?!?!?). Whatev! I agree Eun-jae should not care either, but unfortunately I think that's the typical way for it to go in k-dramas... I would LOVE her (Eun-jae) to be a character that just totally doesn't see or pay attention to Jong Hee, but unfortunately I don't think that's gonna happen. But it wasn't set up that way anyhow - even before Jong Hee showed up, Eun-jae was already starting to get totally self-conscious.

See and I don't even think she is gorgeous. But maybe it is because I just don't connect with that singer/actress (nor did I like her in Oh My Lady either). She looks so petulant.

Nope. Doesn't count if someone falls in love with you when it's not you they're seeing, but the image of you that you manufactured for them. And, I don't think the girl playing Jonghee is from Oh My Lady. Different girl. Same face? In my eyes, I don't think she's drop dead gorgeous either; no Kuroki Meisa this one, but we have to admit that she falls under the Korean standards of pretty, heh. Eye of the beholder? I guess a lot of us aren't happy about the direction this drama might be heading down. I hope it steers away from it, and remains true to it's original course.

Because they are quirky individuals with particular kind of personalities that don't suit everyone and don't quite fit the norm (and don't bother to either). But they were so totally awesome in their own way, moustache, wacky hair and all!

I find that I don't dislike Jong-hee much. I loved how she went and confronted the cute bar guy about him talkiing crap about her when he doesn't really know her. And the bipolar angle was surprising reason for the breakup. I think her character would have more impact if she was played by a different actress.

I hate that Mu-yeol lost his mustache too. I feel like he isn't Mu-yeol without it. I was sad with episode 8 with all that angst concerning Eun-jae's feelings for Mu-yeol. I like it best when they're on the same team, working together (I LOOOVED ep 7). I liked how Mu-yeol's gang of supporters just keep on growing - first with Dong-soo...then Eun-jae..then Dong-ah..and secretary Kim..and even Reporter Go...sort of. Now it's focused on the love triangle.

I haven't watched this week's episodes of FF, but I love how even at episode 14, this drama is not losing any steam and is delivering week after week.

I love how Dong-soo made Reporter Go apologize to Muyeol and Mu-yeol thank Reporter Go. It was so funny watching these two enemies have to listen to their hyung. Hahaha. Birth of a grudging alliance perhaps?

As for Jong-hee, maybe in a different actresses hands I might have liked her just a smidgen - because that confrontation shows she has ovaries of steal, and it's something I like in characters.... But I think the character itself is the annoyance, no matter the hands it is put in to portray it. I hope we get to see a side of her that has her live up to the expectations I held concerning the woman Muyeol once loved. Because if he liked her just for her ageyo and purty face.... Than that just doesn't sit well with me and makes for a very boring love rival.

Timing is a little too pat, isn't it?
Just when they were starting to get close - ba-dum!
Without hardly any signals in the beginning.

With Jonghee showing up? Yes. Timing is waaaay too on the nose. But it's a kdrama. Kind of expected.

Yeah. I'm disappointed in the choice of ex-girlfriend. Perhaps it's the acting, but I really don't see her as competition for EJ. She's like a Stepford wife and I need her to go away soon. She's kind of creepy.

I kind of get where they were trying to go with her. Maybe a kind of flighty, happy go lucky little pixie (early Meg Ryan or Julia Roberts) that you can't help but to love, but it didn't really work for me.

oi! olen maneya!

i rarely go here nowadays and glad to see you're watching WR. haven't watched ep 7-8 yet. ah, i also hate changes, i was wishing mu-yeol and eun jae would end up together without her changing. and what? he's done away with his 'stache? he's actually looking better with that!

Yeah! Muyeol/Dong Wook totally looks better (to me) with the 'stache. Long time no see (speak? read? Hahaha) nonski. My love for Fermentation Family family got me here on OT so I could try to have convos about it as much as possible and get other people interested in it. I'm just sad I always wait until the weekend to watch the current week's episode because dramafever is spitting out some good subs for F-Fam. And since my other current watch is Wild Romance, I figure it's ok to talk about that too. XD

P.S. Truthfully, I have this feeling I'll be done with OT Fridays after F-Fam and Wild Romance are over. It's tough coming here every Friday. But my love for F-Fam is keeping me around. It's so underrated. X( Maybe if I find another drama that needs love and attention, I'll be sure stop by on OT again. But it's still about 4 weeks until F-Fam is done, and I think WR too. I have great respect who are diligent about coming on OT every Friday. I just find I don't have that much to talk about when everyone already said I wanted to say. XD

Hi Ani, it's hard to find FF discussion around even at Soompi. Great that you are doing this to spread the FF love. I've seen bits of WR here and there and like what I saw. I'll definitely watch it when it's complete. FF is my main game right now. I actually started watching Flower Boy Raymeon Shop, at episode 9 now, but didn't feel any urge to continue. Maybe I'm really old now :)

Hahaha. I actually followed the recaps for FBRS, and watched a couple of scenes here and there, but I'm in no hurry to see it in it's entirety. Maybe we're both old, since I feel like F-Fam fits my tastes more. I like me dramas like FBRS, but sometimes.... You're not in the hurry to see it.

And epyc, I saw ep 15 for F-Fam, and 16 was just posted so I gotta say, I'm loving the support Kang San is giving Tae-ho in his search - even when most of the time she doesn't know what's going on. And grandpa won me over to his side just a tad bit with his yellow posters. Aaaaw. And the teacher correcting his mistakes was hilarious and cute. We're on a roll with mystery upon mystery. And I'm worried about Lee Kichan and his Alzheimer. I've been thinking.... Do you think Madam Jung is possibly Taeho's mom or relative of sorts? I've been wondering about that. Gotta be a connection somewhere. Do you think gangster Choi will turn good and end up with Woojoo? It's like he flip flops. One minute he's calling her simpleton, the next he's head over heels in like with her. It's hilarious. Man, this drama just gets better and better. The suspense.The family theme. The food. The cinematography. The chemistry between the leads. Ack! What am I going to do after it?

The yellow poster really speaks to us FF fans as the grandpa has been annoying as hell until that scene. It reminds me of the Keira Knightley-Andrew Lincoln arc in Love Actually. How I wish to be able to taste that meatball soup...

Yes, I do think the CEO woman is the birth mother of our hero and that her son working as sous chef in the restaurant was adopted from the orphanage (maybe at her husband's suggestion). The three boys might grow up together in the orhapnage thought at different point in time. Hope we don't have to wait long for the truth.

With respect to FF, there is an intensity when he looks at her that sends shivers up my spine. Heard his wife (actual) is expecting twins soon, so maybe that is what is reflected in his acting.

And it is the same way with the lead for Padam Padam.

I just love how these two actors look at their OTP women. Very jealous.

EEEEEEEH! Song Il-kook's wife is expecting triplets? WOW! Maybe he is channeling that love he has for his wife. Gosh. That would definitely explain the convincing way he looks at Kang-san with love and admiration and truthfully he has this thankful look that he gives her when she's uber supportive to him and when she's worrying about him. Thanks for the insight Hillary. X)

Well I guessed they would report that because they report the break up between hyun bin and song hye kyo aswell, so I was expecting something. Well I am also glad about that because I am a Minsun shipper:-D

That was a long relationship and they were seen openly in public as a couple. Much as I love the MinMin couple theirs was not long enough. For reporting I mean.

I like to think they were taking the high road? This isn't a very gossipy site in that sense.
