I'm still working my way through Still, Marry Me with is beyond delightful. That show is made of win. I'm being bad and skipping ahead, but I CAN'T HELP IT! No subs = me getting impatient. But wtf Bummie's grey hair?! I wonder how they got it that color, because it sure as hell doesn't look like a wig... ALSO I AM IN LOVE WITH BUMMIE. I also love Sang Mi, and her adorable budding relationship (I'm intentionally leaving that vague).

I scanned some stuff from my Taiwanese magazines and my imported mainland China Kpop magazines earlier today, including a Big Bang interview I've never seen before. I'm looking into translating some of it, but that's turning out harder than I thought, since it's in simplified characters (aka THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE). I also scanned some Taiwanese stuff (high quality Wu Zun pictures are always nice). I love and miss Taiwanese fangirl magazines (wtf, FT Island is on the cover of March's "COLOR"?! Which, holy shit, YesAsia is selling for $15! In Taiwan it sells for, I think, around NT$100, which is $3 USD... and of course now they start reporting on Big Bang... couldn't have done that while I was actually IN Taiwan, could they?)

I'm expecting three different Big Bang-related packages in the mail over the coming weeks. This makes me happy. But I honestly don't know what I'm going to do with the two additional posters I ordered. I already have too many posters for my own good, and too little appropriate wall space.

Speaking of BB, I think I'm done collecting pictures (that's a lie, I still have a few more GD pics I want). I've gone through at least 700 pages of photogalleries for pictures. I have a lot. I doubt I'll use them all (because that would be insane), so here's a random few I liked!

I love Baby's expression. I love that Young Bae is adorable. I love that I knew it was from the "Always" shoot even before I realized there was a caption, because of Baby's, uh, distinctive hair. Lastly, I love that this was taken in Hawaii because YAY BIG BANG IN AMERICA!

Dae's all like "I'M GONNA KILL YOU, BABY!", and Baby's like "huuuuh?" So cute. So made of win.

My current favorite picture in the world. GD and TOP wearing suits while packing heat, and OMG GD'S HAIR! *dies a little*

On Sunday I'm having a small Oscars party, which will include the consumption of cupcakes, and probably some alcohol. Looking forward to that. (I've watched the Oscars every year since I can remember... save last year when apparently I forgot)

I'm through episode 5 of The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry (aka Still, Marry Me which is what I will probably call it from now on, since it's shorter...), and OMG SO MUCH LOVE! I frequently have to stop the video so I can flail without missing anything. I LOVE dramas like this, they're so fun and cute. I know already that it won't top Dal Ja's Spring in my book, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy the hell out of it!

I still like all the characters, though now I have far more respect for Shin Young. Da Jung went from being awesomely crazy to kinda desperate, so she's not my favorite anymore. As it is, I love Boo Ki's view on things best. She's fabulous.

And then there's Bummie. OMG Bummie. I swear, he's doing things to me, and I don't know whhhhyy! He's SO hot it's not fair. For me, or for anyone else, because it's a form of torture, really. They're torturing girls. And you KNOW Bummie's in on it. I'm thinking about flying to Korea and tracking him down ;D
But honestly, boy grew up very nicely. VERY NICELY.

Essentially all of my caps are close-ups of Bummie

I finally got around to watching the first episode of The Woman Who Still Wants To Marry (that's a mouthful), and loved it, as I figured I would. It basically follows my ideal plot format (older career woman / younger guy who recognizes how awesome she is and defies society pressure to be with her), with an extra bonus of awesome woman friendship thrown in to make me love it even more. I love friendship in dramas, especially female friendship (in dramas, inter-woman relationships are portrayed as backstabbing and catty more often than not).

I love all the characters. Shin Young is adorable, and I love that she values her career so much. I want to see more of her personality though, because right now she's totally being overshadowed by the awesome of the other two female characters. Da Jung is my favorite. She's crazy, and I love her for it. She's also smart and accomplished, and SO PRETTY. And then there's Boo Ki, who's hair I would kill for (I could never pull that style off, my hair's too puffy). She's like, the hottest, baddest, most awesome girl.

So far they're utterly to die for. It's like a skewed, Korean, kinda-version of Sex and the City.

Bummie was only in the last few minutes, so not much thought on him, other than HOLY SHIT BUMMIE, WHEN DID YOU GROW UP AND GET AMAZINGLY HOT BEYOND WORDS?! He was adorable in BBF, but in this he's underwear-melting hot. Want. Him. Now.

EH! I want to watch more, but I have to get to the gym before LOST, and I also promised myself I'd watch some episodes of What Happened in Bali because I REALLY need to finish that.
uisceros: (Jun Pyo)
Okay, so I finally finished BBF, and honestly, I loved the damn show. Really. Loved it. And there is no time when I won't love it.

The end wasn't as satisfying as I would have liked, though it was better than the ending to Meteor Garden. The time jump here was canon, so I didn't mind it as much. It was actually nice to see their relationship after four years. No other version has done it (not even the manga, unless you count that special chapter that took place 2 or so years later!), so it was nice to see that. It was also nice to see that Ji Hoo became a doctor. In all the other versions he was kinda directionless.

And squee! The Ga Eul / Yi Jung ending was totally sweet!

I totally want more! This of course means I am HIGHLY tempted to rewatch HYD and MG. Might not come to pass though, as it would mean finding the discs.

And was it me, or was Yu Mi a ton bitchier than any other versions? I HATED her.
uisceros: (GD B&W)
I'm posting a ton today...

BUT when Yi Jung sucks the blood off of Sara-chick's finger, was anyone else STRONGLY reminded of Mars? I only remember because it was that scene where I was like "Ohhhhh I see why everyone loves him" regarding Zai Zai.

When Jun Pyo told Jan Di he loved her, I seriously, LITERALLY squealed and flailed about for a few minutes, because, WOW SO CUTE!

I like how they totally glossed over the sleeping arrangements...

Um. I think JP could very easily break that door down. The least they could have done is make it look sturdier!

Gah! *fangirls* I never ever though I'd love this boy so much.

Like I've said, like, 8 times before. I'm a Jun Pyo / Jan Di shipper. But OMG Ji Hoo! They're so cute together! With the car washing! So cute!

Also, Woo Bin is awesome.

*sigh* Girl pulled a Risa-chan in Love Com, falling asleep during a confession of love! Poor Ji Hoo just can't catch a break.

How did Ga Eul know it was a building. Sara-chick didn't mention it, and the letter got thrown away. Maybe GE's psychic. Either that or she's read the manga. Does she know what happens AFTER in the manga?

Speaking of which, one of my favorite things about Jan Di is that she isn't against Ga Eul and Yi Jung's relationship. She was nervous at first, but then realized that Ga Eul really does love Yi Jung, and let it be.

Squee! The return of Woo Bin's english!

The zoo! And Jun Pyo getting jealous of a little kid, and then playing with him! I loved this scene in Meteor Garden! The damn thing is too cute!

*flails about with extreme Bummie-love!!*

In other news, I'm wicked bored at work currently, with nothing to do. Yay.

And I'm drinking possibly the sweetest tea ever. I basically just poured sugar in it until the sugar container was empty. It's kinda disgusting, but I'm still drinking it...

Today is really busy, tv wise. HIMYM on at 8:30. Mei-chan episodes 9 and 10. BOYS BEFORE FLOWERS EPISODE 22. And maybe something else. If I feel like it.
uisceros: (Jun Pyo getting beat down)
So yes. Watched episodes 19 and 20 of Boys Before Flowers. I didn't do a full liveblog, but I did write down some thoughts. And took some caps! So yes...

A lot of my thoughts don't make a whole hell of a lot of sense... And I only started notes for episode 19 about halfway through...

Thoughts from BBF episodes 19 and 20. Plus, screencaps! )

I just started to watch episode 21, and I just can't. Not right now at least. Episode 20 was so good and sweet, and in the first freaking minute of episode 21, in walks in Jae Kyung AND evil Mom while Jun Pyo and Jan Di are finally getting somewhere! God, the agony!
uisceros: (Yi Jung)
I know it's been said a million times already, but Woo Bin and Yi Jung... slash much?! God, this drama is really handing out the gay subtext. I approve. Highly.

I did a small liveblog. No caps this time (I'm exhausted today, I doubt I could do them if I wanted). I only took 9 caps, and basically all of them are of Ji Hoo sleeping (one of of Jun Pyo sleeping!), so I didn't bother loading them. Okay, I lied. I uploaded a few...

Liveblog for BBF episode 18 )

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm still highly enjoying BBF. I'm easy; as long as something entertains me, I'm happy. And dear God is this entertaining!

And Oh! I FINALLY got my Big Bang posters today. One is totally hanging next to my bed, which is dorky, but it was a free space, so whatever. It's hilarious, seeing these huge graphic art posters next to my other stuff
In case, you know, you ever wanted to know what kinda artwork I have )
uisceros: (Ji Hoo + violin = ♥)
I'm still feeling kinda crappy, so I'm not going to bother with a lot of stuff today. I didn't get my package from YesAsia (WHHHY?!!), and I'm exhausted. I think my marathon 4 day headache is finally winding down, but it's left me exhausted.

I watched BBF episode 17, and DIDN'T LIVEBLOG. It was harder than I imagined it would be.

Well, I DID liveblog, but only slightly. Only a few notes, and while I seriously scaled back my capping, I still managed to end up with 31 of them. It's practically unconscious now.

Anyway, I have 8 caps that I REALLY loved, so I needed to share!

This scene KILLED me.

Not really a liveblog, mostly just thoughts, and a few caps )

I felt bad for poor Woo Bin. He only got like, one scene in this episode. MORE AKIRA PLEASE! KTHX!

I need a new drama to watch. One that is hard subbed so I can watch it on my ipod. I should check my massive drama reserves....
uisceros: (Zai Zai in black)
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?
uisceros: (Jiro)
So, I uploaded 50 screencaps for this drama. And that was AFTER I cut them down... twice. Obviously I have a screencaping problem. Regardless, I thought almost all of them were important to share, so yeeess.

Btw, the liveblog part might not make a lot of sense. And it's more fangirlish than usual... Also, fair warning, I really like Jae Kyung. I've always liked Shigeru.

Liveblog for BBF episode 16 )


I'm REALLY tired right now, so I can't really explain WHY I love this episode, I just do, intensely. Ji Hoo = ♥! Jun Pyo = ♥! Yi Jung = ♥! Woo Bin = ♥!
uisceros: (Jun Pyo getting beat down by a girl)
Boys Before Flowers is like, the most cracktastic thing I've ever seen in my life.

I wrote a liveblog, and took 150 caps. I'm not going to post it tonight though, because I just started a new series, and I really want to see the next episode. I'll probably post it tomorrow.

That being said, I do have a few general comments, and a few screencaps! Most of my caps are of people being surprised or disgusted. Apparently that was a theme in this episode.

I youtubed BBF ep 15, as I can't seem to get the download for the first part (via arashi.vox) to work. I have all the other parts... I'm hoping it'll work soon.

Anyway, I liveblogged (Despite the time it takes, I can't stop liveblogging!), but without pics. Well, I did get two (care of the print screen function!)

BBF episode 15 liveblog )

The previews confuse me! Why does Jun Pyo have straight hair? What's with Yi Jung and Ga Eul? Did Ji Hoo finally figure out old crabby doctor man is his grandfather? Can't WAIT until tomorrow!

In other news, my Big Bang posters shipped out today (Tomorrow, technically. Oh times zones, how you confuse me)!!
uisceros: (Vanness)
I'm dead tired tonight. I watched Lost (OMG LOST!! I love that show so much. It's like, the crazier it gets, the more I love it), and then finished reading the scanlations for Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru (Well, up to volume 5. The rest isn't translated yet). And then, I randomly found out that there was an OVA related to the series, so of course I downloaded it, and watched it. I really freaking adore Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru. More than I probably should. I heard about a similar story, Koi Kaze, but I don't know if I'll be able to read it. I'm not to fond of the mangaka's style.

Anyone seen this? I thought it was hilarious, and very well done. It's like a perfect mishmash of Korean BBF angst, and totally awesome gay Taiwanese movies/dramas. Plus, Bummie!! So cute!

Anyway, I'm going to sleep 'early' tonight (if you consider 1 am early... Earlier than normal, I suppose). So no dramas at all today (unless you count the bits of Hello My Teacher I caught while trying to find the Gong Yoo swim trunks picture (for my future reference, since I'm sure I'm going to want to show people that scene again; episode 13, minute 54)...
uisceros: (Jan Di and Ji Hoo)
I'm youtubing BBF 14, so I can't really cap it, or do a full entry. But a few thoughts;

Thoughts, BBF ep 14 )

Hmmmm... that's not obvious foreshadowing AT ALL (yes, I'm aware it's meant to be obvious. I just like being as sarcastic as possible). I CAN'T WAIT until next episode!

Random RL story )
uisceros: (Ji Hoo + violin = ♥)
I'd heard bad things about episode 13 (that it was boring, that it was depressing, etc), but I think it might be my second favorite episode so far (after episode 12). We all know this happens, it's not a shock when he ignores her.

As much as I live for Jun Pyo, I love this episode for the lack of him. He's so larger than life, he blocks out everyone else around him. We don't get to see just how amazing the F3 are when he's in the vicinity (Lee Min Ho = scene stealer!). I love this episode because of the F3. Because they rallied around Jan Di, they showed her support they've never show anyone else. It was amazing, and heartbreaking, and I quite desperately loved it.

Also, Han Jae Kyung (Shigeru!!) seems like she's going to be as awesome as she should be. It's REALLY hard to hate Shigeru. I've never been able to. Jae Kyung seems like she's going to be the same; incredibly annoying at times, but so sweet and earnest that you can't help but love her. Plus, Lee Min Jung looks like Shigeru should... it's the hair. Shigeru should ALWAYS have short hair.

Oh, and there was totally some Mandarin-speakage (* see later comment!), which makes anything better! (I LOOOVE Mandarin)

Not really a liveblog, but whatever, BBF episode 13 )
uisceros: (Yi Jung being awesome (as always))
I'm watching BBF 13 as we speak, but there was something I just HAD to share.

Did anyone else notice that in this scene, the F3 are totally staring at Koo Hye Sun's ass?

(Notice the useful sight lines I drew?!)
Kim Bum was the most obvious, he was all looking at her face. But then, like, as soon as she turned around and started walking away, his eyes IMMEDIATELY dropped. I laughed quite hard. Oh Bummie! I love you so much!
uisceros: (G-Dragon)
I finally finished 35 icons, so I'm going to post them! Yays! The subject matter is really all over the place... But yeah, enjoy!


The Rest! )
uisceros: (Yi Jung)
Oh!!! Random comment from episode 12; WOO BIN IS AWESOME! Suddenly he's so badass! I'm glad they're giving him more screentime, I really like him (Oh! It just occurred to me that maybe the reason they had him speaking random english in the first few episodes was to possibly mimic what Vanness did in MG... Vanness spoke a fair amount of english in the first few episodes. If true, that would be awesome. I love Vanness... which is random, but whatev)

Ohhhh my God, BBF episode 12 rocked my world. ROCKED MY WORLD.

They not only had the ski thing, but they ALMOST went as far as the manga did. I tried very hard to suspect disbelief as far as the "snowstorm" was concerned, but really, BBF? You can't fool us who are down with snowy weather. It would have worked better in Canada, where it was supposed to happen... but I mean, even HYD had better snow effects. But I'll forgive you!!

I'm really excited to see what happens in episode 13! I hope it'll still air next week (I don't know how Korean drama schedules work, but like, in the US, the ending for episode 12 would have signified a new season).

BBF resembles HYD more than it resembles MG. Not that that's a bad thing, just interesting.

Also, the Ga Eul / Yi Jung relationship is awesome. I'm really looking forward to what they do with it.

And Ji Hoo is perfect. He's like, the best my awesome guy ever. I'm insanely in love with Jun Pyo, but I still love Ji Hoo immensely. This means I'm going to start having to listen to SS501 now...
uisceros: (Love Com)
I think I got back to everyone! Yay!!

Tongith I was going to watch BBF, but the youtube vids aren't working for me, and I've decided that it'll probably be better to wait for the DDL anyway. So tomorrow I'll liveblog.

Despite that, I am kinda watching it without subs. I have NO IDEA what is happening, but Yi Jung and Ga Eul!!! I'm SO HAPPY that k-hanadan is actually giving them a substantial part. I was never a massive fan of the coupling before (it was cute, but not my OTP), but now that they actually have a GOOD plot, I'm LOVING them! It helps that Kim So Eun and Kim Bum are totally adorable together.

Also, Ji Hoo's brown suit... *dies from the hotness*

I have no idea when I'm going to finish Bangkok Love Story. I meant to tonight, but stuff got away from me. I'm going to "watch" BBF, and then icon for awhile.

#18 should be up tomorrow. If I can get my shit together...

(Random fact, I ALWAYS confuse Kim Jeong Hoon with Kim Hyun Joong. Well, I don't confuse them, I confuse their names. Stupid name similarity!)
