I've been watching Mischievous Kiss (admittedly slowly - I'm waiting for the Haru2Haru subs, instead of streaming), and I quite like it. That didn't come as a surprise to me in the least. I love Hyun Joong a ton, the girl strongly reminds me of Yoon Eun Hye (which is always a good thing), and I'm also quite fond of the storyline.

I mean, technically it was ISWAK that brought me to Taiwan. ISWAK was my first Taiwanese drama, and after getting past my initial shock at the production quality versus Japanese dramas, I was utterly hooked. A lot of my early views of Taiwan and the Taiwanese people came from what I saw in ISWAK. I have strong attachments to that drama.

Anyway, yesterday, after watching MK episodes 4-9 raw, I decided to rewatch ISWAK. As it turns out, Mischievous Kiss is following the same plotline extremely closely. They've cut out some things, of course (like Xiang Qin's night blindness. I liked that plotpoint, but I suppose unless they plan on adapting the whole manga, it won't make much difference in the end), but on the whole it's pretty damn close.

Which makes me question why people who didn't like the Taiwanese version at all are liking the Korean version so much. They're SO close. Ha Ni is a bit less dumb that Xiang Qin was, Seung Jo is a bit less mean than Zhi Shu, and Joon Gu a bit less stalkery than Ah Jin. Otherwise, the characters are basically the same. The plotline is cut down a bit in the Korean version (admittedly making for less embarrassment for Ha Ni, and less time spent on her character devoting her life entirely to Seung Jo), but otherwise they're the same. There are tone differences, naturally, but is that really the reason people seem to like the Korean one and hate the Taiwanese one? The old standby excuse of not liking Xiang Qin's character doesn't seem to apply to me here, because the characters (to me at least) are pretty identical. I don't get it. But then, I very rarely do.

Does Seung Jo's little brother remind anyone else of Kim Bum? Just me? Okay.

That aside, I random!capped.


BEST. MOMENT. IN. A. DRAMA. EVER. (As an aside, I loved watching this, because I could understand some. I stopped the show many times to read the Chinese subs too. 對, 對啊 indeed. Taiwanese dramas make a lot more sense sometimes when you can make sense of what they're saying. Translations just don't cut it sometimes.)

All things considered, I keep on top of Taiwanese entertainment news pretty well. I don't know HOW IN THE WORLD I could have missed this.

Taiwan is remaking Coffee Prince

Excuse me while I die of utter delight! And the best part is Ariel Lin is going to be playing Eun Hye's role. Ariel is one of my three favorite Asian actresses, and I've been impressed with her acting since day 1. She's one of the few Asian actresses that really wholly puts herself in the role, being unafraid of looking bad. Seriously, anyone who watched ISWAK knows that's she's not afraid to get into the roles. Dirty crying, and all. RUMORS are saying that Jerry Yan will play Gong Yoo's role, but honestly I hope not. Nothing against Jerry (especially since I quite like him), but he's not one of the best actors in the world. If I could choose, I would hope for Zai Zai, or Joseph Chang. Both are phenomenal actors, and play carefree playboys well.

In other awesome Twdrama news, they're finally picking Extravagant Challenge up again. Now, I've been waiting for this damn drama for years. It's based on Skip Beat, which I love. And it will also star Ariel (which we already knew). What IS new though, is that Jerry Yan (who was initially cast) is being replaced. Instead, we get two awesome alternatives! Siwon and Donghae from SuJu! Siwon and Donghae are my FAVORITE SuJu members! And they both have fantastic chemistry with Ariel (if you've seen her MV for 螢火蟲, you'd agree). I love that Siwon and Donghae are diving into a Taiwanese drama. I want so much for K-stars to pay more attention to Taiwan, and this is the best way. Especially with Ariel (who speaks Korean - she majored in it at university).

I'm so excited! Seriously, the only thing that could make it better would be Zai Zai (who I've always wanted Ariel to act with).

Easy Fortune Happy Life
Gokusen 2 (I started it the other day for no apparent reason)

Plus I just started downloading Triple (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf), and One Pound Gospel (thanks to [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter). So yeah. Lots to watch :D

SECOND -> Meme from [livejournal.com profile] mamarocker_83

THIRD -> I bought a Japanese Junon magazine back in April. Back then I didn't recognize a lot of the people. But since I've recently been watching a lot more Japanese stuff, I went through it again. Anyway, I came across some pictures... [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter, [livejournal.com profile] seven_trees, [livejournal.com profile] wildwesternwind, and others who I can't think of off the top of my head right now; I do think you're going to love me for this...

Also, random Seto Koji!

FOURTH -> Random promo picture from Easy Fortune Happy Life, that is GORGEOUS.

LASTLY -> I heard Ariel Lin is looking to break into the Korean music market. Congrats to her, I hope it will be successful! She's beautiful, talented, and speaks Korean, so it should work ;D

And that's it for right now!

Okay, actual post this time!

Ariel Lin's new MV has been released.

It stars two members of Super Junior, Siwon (aka the one in SuJu I can recognize who is not ShinDong), and DongHae.

The MV is adorable, and Ariel's voice is heavenly. The boys do a good job, especially DongHae. The MV actually kinda made me sad. Ariel's MVs always kinda make me sad... Lonely Northern Hemisphere makes me sad because it's from Love Contract, and everything related to LC makes me sad. Course Lu Ni Ya Zhan Ji doesn't make me sad, but I'm not going to include that one...

Some really cute things from the MV; in the beginning Ariel starts singing Sorry Sorry!! The boys speak in Korean throughout, and it's subtitled in Chinese, which is AWESOME.

I can't wait to get her album!

ALSO I got the Big Bang My Heaven single album from Japan yesterday. I'll take pictures at some point. But for now, enjoy a HQ picture of GD from the MV!
uisceros: (Ella! *loves!*)
Sorry I haven't been keeping up with stuff recently. I've been feeling quite shitty.

But that's beside the point; Random Taiwanese stuff!!

SO, both Ariel Lin and Xiao Gui (Alien) are coming out with albums this summer. I knew about Ariels, but not about Xiao Gui's! Ariel's comes out 17Jul09, and Xiao Gui's 24Jul09. I'll probably buy both when I'm in Taiwan, since the shipping will take 2 weeks anyway. I'm particularly excited for Ariel's album. Her music isn't really my type (poppy and ballady), BUT I adore her voice.

Summer dramas... well... I haven't been talking about them much, because, to be honest, not a lot of them really interest me. I mean, you've got;

1. Mo Nu 18 Hao (Magic 18) - Joyce Zhao and Sam Wang are the redeeming factors of this drama for me. Mostly revolves around family, and magic, and it's complicated

2. Roseate Love - I'm SO bitter about this drama it's not even funny. Like, I'm sure it'll be good and everything, but it was SUPPOSED to star Ariel Lin AND BRYANT CHANG. In a lead role! But then bad things happened, and now he's not in it, and I'm sad. Rui Jia deserves a lead role, damn it! I mean, he was FABULOUS in Eternal Summer and Summer's Tail...

3. Momo Love - Drastic cast and plot changes cooled my desire to watch this as well. I might still watch it because Vanness and Ken will be in it (along with some other Taiwanese character actors I like), but I can't say it's number one on my list.

4. Love Buffet - This one is a maybe for me. It might actually be a high school twdrama, which never happens... But Calvin and Aaron are adorable, so maybe. I THINK it's based on a manga, and I usually like manga adaptations, so yeah.

5. Fighting Spirit - I have no idea what this one is about, and I think it was only recently announced... It's a sports drama though, so yeah. Not for me.

6. Calling Big Star - I love Mike He, but the premise just seems boring.

There's a few more, but the details are scarce....

ON THE OTHER HAND, there ARE twdramas I'm looking forward to!

7. Down With Love - Ella and Jerry's drama. Anything with Ella in it automatically goes on my list. Add a fun plotline, and it's on my must-see for the summer list!

8. Easy Fortune Happy Life - I finally got the first episode of this, and I'm so excited to see it! Qiao En = LOVE.

9. Ni Shi Wo De Wei Yi - OMG I want to watch this SO BADLY, but it'll probably never get subbed.

10. Summer's Bubble - Cast changes put it down my list, but the plotline, with the fakecest, makes me want to watch it.

11. Take Care of You, Accompanied by the Lights - This is a cdrama, but whatever. The pairing of Ming Dao and Chen Qiao En makes me happy beyond words. I CANNOT WAIT for this drama.

12. Meteor Shower - Another cdrama. This is, obviously, the mainland version of Hana Yori Dano. I want to see it for the lulz.

As for the Taiwanese version of Full House... I'm not really sure how I feel about that one. I adore Wu Zun, and I think he'll be great. I haven't heard of Zhou Xun, but she's a mainland actress, so it's not like I would have heard of her anyway. BUT she's beautiful, and supposedly a good actress. One part of the story I LOVE is the cross cultural issues it'll be addressing, since the plot will go into the relationship between mainland China and Taiwan. THAT is interesting. But then, I have a thing with Taiwanese history and politics.

I'm not good at keeping track of people's birthdays, so I almost missed it! (Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] prettierdanpink for reminding me!!)

Zai Zai turns 28 today!

Naturally, I will prepare a picspam later on tonight to celebrate this most joyous occasion. God knows I already have around 15 pictures of him sitting on my computer.

Anyway, I was catching up on some news, and decided to post some of the stories I found interesting.
What's going on in recent Asian Entertainment news )

Ah! I'm so behind in entertainment news! I've been so preoccupied with Atashinchi no Danshi (and other jdramas), that I've lost touch with my Taiwanese entertainment roots. I haven't even gotten a chance to finish watching My Queen! I blame the fact that it's streaming, and I hate streaming. I'll get around to it when I finish Sekachu. And once Sekachu is finished (probably today or tomorrow) I'm starting Easy Fortune Happy Life.

And oh! AnD 8 finished airing around two hours ago. I'm anxiously awaiting screencaps!

Some more random stuff relating to upcoming twdramas...
Upcoming Taiwanese dramas 2009 news! )

And one more thing; Joo Ji-hoon seeks 1 year in prison - Basically the prosecuters are seeking to sentance Joo Ji Hoon to a year in prision for taking drugs on one occasion while drunk. Hmmmmmm... something doesn't seem quite right. You know, I love Korea, I really do, but I sometimes wonder about their justice system. A system where a person can be convicted for a year in prision for taking drugs once, or a deceased actress can successfully be sued for being abused by her husband, is probably not a good system.
uisceros: (Vanness in a suit)
So a few things;

1. Calling Big Star looks to be airing in July. It's been postponed, but it DOES look like it's still going to air.

2. I've heard positive things about the future of Extravagent Challenge, so yay! At least Ariel looks to still be in it, but who knows about Jerry. Seeing as how he's so sought after and busy, I think he probably won't be available. Maybe Joe will come back into it. Or maybe they'll pull Rui Jia in (which would make me SO happy).

3. Paper Rose has TOTALLY switched casts. Completely. It will now star newcomer Rachel Liang (Liang Wen Ying), Tender Huang, and Danny Huang. Apparently Tiffany Xu is also in it somewhere. I might watch it eventually, but it's no longer on my must see list. I could deal with Ariel opting out, but now that Rui Jia isn't in it anymore, I find no valid reason to watch (both Tender Huang and Danny Huang have only been in a few things, most of which I haven't seen. And as much as I like Tiffany Xu, I'm not going to watch an entire drama for a side character).

4. Depite the disappointing (for me at least) Paper Rose developments, there is a VERY GOOD bit of news in the twdrama world! Ella and Jerry's drama Just Want to Depend on You is not only confirmed, but it's filming! That means the chances of it getting canceled or delayed are VERY LOW. I've seen some shots from filming, and OMG SO CUTE! I mean, just look at this picture from a press conferance!

That little boy is one of the most adorable little kids I've ever seen! You can't see it in this shot, but his shirt totally has a tiny little Snoopy on it! *dies of cuteness*

Also joining the cast; Gu Bao Ming (Pan bà bà!), and Michael Zhang (!!!!!!!!!)... so now I KNOW I'm going to watch it.

5. Brief mention, but Good Health and Fortune has changed it's name to Easy Fortune Happy Life, which is a definitely clunkier translation of the characters, but it's not super stupid, and it still makes sense with the Mandarin name. It starts on the 31st of May! SUPER excited! Yay Chen Qiao En! I think this is going to be one of her last idol dramas.

They have this behind the scenes thing for My Queen, and in it Cheryl talks about meeting with Chen Qiao En, and THAT DID IT. Cheryl Yang is now, FIRMLY, one of my favorites.

I now have a trio of my most favorite, amazing, talented, awesome drama girls.

The Innocent - Ariel Lin Yi Chen

The Sexy - Chen Qiao En

The Awesome - Cheryl Yang Jin Hua

They are all goddesses and I simultaneously want to be them and be their best friends.

Also, Cheryl did a LOT of underwear modeling (as I found out when I did a photo search)... *is jealous of Cheryl Yang and her fabulous looks*

Just finished Kimi wa Petto. It was adorable, and I loved it a ton. And I didn't cap it at all. It was kinda liberating, not capping. Not that I'm going to do it again anytime soon :D

Now, what to watch. I'm thinking of Thank You, but I might finish The Rose instead. Decisions decisions.

Also, maybe it's just me, but Ishihara Satomi looked a TON like Ariel Lin in that drama.

In other news, I was this close to buying random Big Bang merchanidise that I don't need (notebooks, bandannas, lipgloss, you name it), but managed to hold myself back, for the most part... I did buy a cellphone strap though. Not the shiny leather gold plated one though, despite it being horribly horribly tempting.

I've also given up the pretense of being remotely sane when it comes to things related to Big Bang. I've got most of their albums now. I just bought the third single album. I only need the second single and two of the Japanese albums, and I'm done. I also got the Big Show concert album, which I actually didn't plan to buy (I don't think I'll buy any of the other concert albums.... what can I say, I was caught up in the hysteria). And finally, the Global Warning concert DVD, which I HAVE been planning to buy. I got green. So yeah. Now I have all the released concert DVDs (the Big Show DVD is coming out soon).

Hey, no one can say I don't commit when I love something!
uisceros: (Ariel)
I used my lunch break to finish watching Kimi wa Petto episode 3 (how can they end the episode like that?! Gah!), and True Love 18 episode 1.

True Love 18 is one of those old twdramas (2002 is old in twdrama-land) that very few people have seen. Up until recently it hasn't been subbed.

I was interested in seeing it because it was Ariel Lin's first drama. But also; Joseph Chang is in it (his first drama as well)!

Anyway, from the first episode it looks QUITE promising. It's touching on one of my major kinks; teacher/student. And it's actually two student/teacher relationships...

So far Ariel is adorable as per usual. She looks SO YOUNG despite being 20-21 in it. The main male protagonist, Shi Yi Nan, is someone I'd never seen before. I like him though. He looks vaguely like... someone. Maybe Vanness, I'm not sure. Anyway, he was also in Diary of Sex and the City with Cheryl Yang (CHERYL YANG!).

Yi Nan and Ariel's relationship seems to be the focus of the show, but there is a major secondary relationship happening between another teacher and Ariel's friend. It's going to be cute; Ariel's friend is kinda a prostitute (literally, she get calls from dudes, and has sex with them for money.... thus she is a prostitute), and the teacher is sweet and gentle, and kinda dorky. I love relationships where the girl is the experienced initiator.

I'm not sure what Joseph is doing as of yet, but whatever, he's hot. He can stand around doing nothing and it'd still add to the show.

It's pretty sad though. Xu Wei Lun plays the prostitute girl, and I know everytime I see her I'm going to be sad (in case you're not up on your tw-stars, Xu Wei Lun was killed in a car accident two years ago. She was only 28 at the time). It was the same for me watching Lee Un in Coffee Prince.

Also! Lin Mei Xiu plays Ariel's alcoholic mother, which is pretty awesome. I love Lin Mei Xiu... she's in everything, and she always goes a great job (she plays Cheryl's mother in My Queen... jeez, there's a lot of Cheryl connections here, which naturally means I'm getting good vibes. I ♥ Cheryl tons). This was her first drama too!

What with everyone doing their picspams for [livejournal.com profile] picspammy, I was like "I want to do one tooooo", so I did!

This is the first one I thought of. It's not a scene, rather a sequence of scenes with one common theme. Be warned MAJOR spoilers for the end of Love Contract. It's most of the last episode.

Love Contract, episode 20 )

I warn people when watching Love Contract, because the ending is abrupt, tragic (and the other two endings are seriously odd), but it's worth seeing. I think Mike is most beautiful here, when he's not too perfect. Ariel is fabulous, as always, playing totally against type. And wow, their chemistry. Amazing.

Now I want to rewatch it...

Apparently I've been severely lacking sleep recently.

Today it was sucky; rainy and gross, so I watched a movie. The movie ended, and I was weirdly tired, so I fell asleep. At 6pm. I JUST woke up. And it's 2:30am. That's a goddamn 8 hour "nap".

I had a weird drama dream though. It was a jdrama and it was a lot like Goong, except with yakuza. And the girl was pretty awesome; she was a delinquent.

Also, just found out that Intangible is subbing True Love 18, which was Ariel Lin's first drama (when she was 19). It also stars Joseph Chang (OMG! OMG! OMG!), and Xu Wei Lun (of which watching will make me terribly sad). Unfortunately it's only available through torrent so far...

I also finally got my last package from YesAsia which included the Hot Issue album, and the Two-Sided Fahrenheit album. Excitement abound!

When you search google for "upcoming taiwanese dramas 2009", my site is the first one listed. Weird.

I was trolling the interwebs looking for news about upcoming twdramas, I came across a bit of news that made me SO HAPPY... until it didn't.

Ariel Lin is supposedly involved in a drama called Paper Rose. It costars ZHANG RUI JIA! And not in a side role either, I think he's the male lead! I proceeded to get super excited for around 5 minutes, until I read that production has been delayed and it probably won't be seeing the light of day for awhile. Ariel might have even dropped it. (Not terribly exciting to me, but will be to others; Baron Chen, of Fated to Love You fame, is also slated to be in it)

This makes me super sad, because Ariel is my favorite serious tw-actress (Qiao En is my favorite tw-idol-actress. I love Qiao En to pieces, but she's really not as good an actress as Ariel is). She's got a great range, and I enjoy all of her work. Rui Jia is, of course, one of my favorite tw-actors. He's really really fabulous (seriously, WATCH ETERNAL SUMMER), and it saddens me that he's always delegated to "best friend" roles. If this drama happens I will watch it and love it solely because I love those two actors.

But anyway, this brings me back to the one thing I hate the most about the Taiwanese entertainment industry; they cannot freaking STICK TO PRODUCTION. Compare to Japan; everyone knows about upcoming jdramas. They have planned casts, they go into production as planned, and they're generally set. Twdramas are a mess. They announce dramas, but then don't do them. Casts change frequently. Production halts all the time. It's so chaotic!

As of right now, the ONLY twdramas I know will be airing soon are Black & White, and Calling Big Star (maybe Quietly Falling in love With You, as well). And of those, only Black & White has an actual air date scheduled. Good Health & Fortune is another one that looks like it could be definite (I hope! Squee! Qiao En!), but honestly, I can't tell. Even Momo Love, one I thought was happening for sure, has been postponed.

Seriously, what the hell are they going to be airing in Taiwan next season is all the damn dramas are postponed?! (Yes, I know they have other shows... Dramas aren't everything)

*sigh* This whole rollercoaster over Paper Rose has made me upset. Angry beyond reason. Way to ruin what could have been an AMAZING drama, CTV.

I adored Summer's Tail. It had a slow languorous pace, but still managed to be frantic when it needed to be. It had beautiful music. The characters were great; I cared for each and every one of them. It was a great movie, not in the same way Eternal Summer is, but lovely nonetheless.

I'm (probably) going to write a full review at some point. But not right now. Still feel crappy. I took ~120 screencaps. Most of them of Rui Jia, who I love EVEN MORE now. He's quickly moving up my list of hot guys I'm in love with. I knew he was special when I saw him in Love Contract.

Apparently I REALLY like Taiwanese movies. Every single one I've seen I've loved. I think Eternal Summer has to be one of my favorite movies OF ALL TIME, and I've seen a lot of movies. It's that good (I totally rewatched it today).

Summer's Tail was filmed in Tainan. I was never really interested in going to Tainan in particular, but this film really showed the beauty of the county.

I just randomly stumbled upon the official Love Contract site. Xiao Feng was supposed to be 21, and Ah Ken was supposed to be 23. Ariel Lin WAS 21 at the time. Mike was 20... He sure didn't look 23.... Rui Jia was 19, he was supposed to be 21. Conversely Lin Yi Hong was 24, playing 21.

I should just stay away from the asianfanatics news section. I always end up spending LOADS of time on there... some current news stories that interested me (Taiwanese and Korean);

Stories about Vanness Wu, Big Bang, Wu Zun, Jiro Wang, Lee Min Ho, hot boy lists, Chinese F4, Kim Bum, Superstar Express, Rainie, and Zai Zai )

Also, the cast of BBF must be cursed when it comes to car accidents. Bummie's gotten in two already, Kim Hyun Joong and Kim Joon each had one on the same day, Lee Min Ho was previously injured (badly) from a car accident, and just today Koo Sun Hye had a car accident! Thankfully in most cases, the injuries were non existent or minor (save for Min Ho's). But it makes me wonder, are car accidents in Korea THAT prevalent? I know Taiwan is notorious for car accidents (that's why a lot of times deaths in dramas are due to car accidents), but I didn't know Korea was as well. And really, shouldn't they be hiring better drivers to escort these major stars?

So yay! New MV (though it's not one of my favorite songs)! But exactly why are they standing under a dangling car?

Poor Aaron! They're always picking on him!

Aaron Yan could only agree to it unwillingly." Aw, Aaron! Ever since I saw the video of him doing that ridiculous cat dance, I've just wanted to squeeze him! It's kinda weird, because it's not like he's a kid... he's only 2/3 years younger than I am (there seem to be conflicting reports on what his birthyear actually is...)

*snort* "When Wu Zun was asked if he would imitate Aaron Kwok who showed his chest muscles at the concert if the album sales are good, he said, 'Nope!

But AH! He's wearing a rosary as a necklace, which is SO one of my pet peeves. A Rosary is NOT a necklace. It's like, the one religious thing I'm sensitive about. I think it's kinda disrespectful.

It's really weird to see Wu Zun, and hear another person's voice.

Wu Zun gave Ariel a trucker hate that says "Ruldolph Valentino"...

Oh shits. So in Love Contract, one of the characters, Ah Kai, was in love with Ariel's character (Xiao Feng), but Xiao Feng was in love with Mike's character (Ah Ken). Well, the dude that played Ah Kai (Zhang Rui Jia) is in Tokyo Juliet. And his character is in love with Ariel's... again. So now I feel bad for him... again. Stupid love triangles... making me like the odd man out.

Ah! I just got caught up in an evil vortex of Family Guy videos on youtube... They just kept coming, and I couldn't STOP!!!!

But then I started watching Gokusen again, and all was well... for now.....

Crap, got sucked in again! Damn you Family Guy, and your hilarious Star Wars references!!! DAMN YOU!

And I forgot what I was doing.... Oh yeah. I began to watch Tokyo Juliet, but when I opened the file, it wasn't subbed. I assumed it was hard subbed, but apparently not.

Also, it's in rmvb format. *sigh* I really hate rmvb... It's annoying not being able to use VLC for everything. I normally wouldn't mind using Real Alternative, but for some reason, my work laptop doesn't like to use it, and since I end up using that computer to watch stuff a lot, I miss out on stuff (like WtSYA).

Ah! While the picture quality is really good, the sound SUCKS (which, unfortunately, is kinda the norm in twdramas... sucky sound. Ah well, I've seen worse)

Um, wow. Wu Zun is sooooo hot. I'd forgotten just how hot. And Ariel's hair is so pretty. I'm assuming it's a weave, but still, pretty!

I'm tired, and going to sleep, BUT this drama fascinates me. I love fashion. Seriously, I love it sooo much. I can name most major haute couture designers (something which apparently not a ton of people can do...), and tend to have clothesgasms when confronted with beautiful clothes. I'm nowhere near rich, so I'm not around expensive clothes much, but one time I went into a Neiman Marcus and just about died from the prettiness. And even though it was pret a porter, I still was able to ogle Carolina Herrera, Phillip Lim, and the ultimate; Chanel. *sigh* Fashion is awesome.
