I decided to follow the rest of my peeps, and do my top 12 drama boyfriend list.

In response to [livejournal.com profile] cranberrysheep's Drama Boyfriend Playoffs, I listed my top 12 (well, technically it was 13, but who's counting) ideal drama boyfriends. And then [livejournal.com profile] ambergold and [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter made more detailed posts, and well, I decided to as well!

And because I wanted pictures (and since a lot of my choices are from dramas I watched ages ago, when I didn't know how to screencap) I didn't have any ready to use caps, so I spent awhile going through my big ol' folder of drama discs. But this also meant I spent awhile rewatching my favorite parts of various dramas. But I'll get to that later.

Amusingly about half are from twdramas. Apparently I still love me some Taiwanese men after all ;P. Oddly, a lot of my choices are from unpopular dramas as well. And I totally have actor repeat offenders (three of them, actually!)

Anyway, list! (Note, the frst 5 aren't really in any concrete order. I love them all too much to choose between them)

I mentioned how much I liked Boys Before Flowers... well I just read a recap of episode 2 (care of dramabeans), and it looks so awesome! The descriptions make me love Jun Pyo (Domyoji) sooo much. He's so stupid it's adorable!

I do plan on writing my thoughts on HYD Final tonight, but see, the notes I take are fairly interesting. I had the same issue when I did the Love Contract summaries. Trying to decipher them is always fun.

Some examples (verbatim);
"Akira = awesome, guns, & things blowing up!"
"in nevada, big ass trucker"
"hotel guy is hot"
"Hotel owner K is takano?"
" 'Bang!' "
"OMG D in hotel room...."
"Rui is adorable & tall"
"auctioneer sucks!"

I hate watching dramas that are streamed. The quality is gross, and I always forget that they're not in VLC, and try to pause them using the space bar (yes, I know this works on online videos too, but I always somehow screw it up, and bad things happen).

I'm willing to suffer for Boys Before Flowers, though.


episode 1 )
- Why do they always say "fighting!", it's cute and all, but WHY?!
more... )
- Mmm. Joon Pyo is hot. I approve.
- Oh God, Rui.
- The blonde, the violin, the white suit. I'm in love (again). Whether the character be Rui, Lei, or Ji Hoo... I'll always love him.
...and more )
- OMG Rui-gasm! Kim Hyun Joong totally IS acting like Shun-kun! It's weird... but I like it. And dear God is that boy fine. It's too bad he's 2 1/2 years younger than. Not that that's terribly weird. I wish I were 2 1/2 years younger than I am now. Mmmmm 22.
- Ginger has an amusing american accent when she speaks english. It's like she learned how to speak english by listening to "Valley Girl" over and over and over again (btw, that's a Zappa reference, not the Nic Cage film)
...and even more )
- HAHAHA Domyoji! I love him so much! He's so scary at first, but he's a total dork!
- Jan Di is super awesome. They just egged and floured her, and she's thinking of the pancakes those eggs and flour could have made.
...and yet some more )

Well that ended rather abruptly... Are they really airing it every night? Oh, no, only Monday and Tuesday. That's kinda a weird schedule. Whatever.

So yes, I highly enjoyed it (as if I WOULDN'T enjoy it).
summary of my thoughts )

You know, I can't seem to remember Meteor Garden all that well. Either that, or I'm getting it REALLY confused with HYD...a rewatch is needed.

*sigh* Exhausted. I stay up too late watching dramas. It's supposed to snow a fair amount tonight, and God I hope I don't have work tomorrow *wishes*!

And I know I said I was going to post my HYD Final review today, unfortunately I forgot my work computer at my house, so I couldn't type it up during the day. Sooo it'll be later on. Soon though.
uisceros: (Ella! *loves!*)
Today, outside of my workplace, there are protestors. No shit. I work for a pharmecutical company, so it's not like it's unheard of, but it's still pretty funny. They have a gigantic blow up rat... I'm not sure what they're protesting, but if they're against animal testing, I might as well join them out there. I HATE working for a company that tests on animals (granted, we're probably one of the lesser offenders). Vivisection is one of, if not the things I hate most in the world. I hate it less when it's done for medical reasons, but I still hate it. Regardless, it's kinda funny to see them. I want to take pictures, and might if given the chance.

I started two new dramas last night. First off, Boys Before Flowers. It's actually not subbed yet, so I just watched a good portion of it just in Korean. It was... educational. The opening was interesting, with a dude getting harassed, and about to commit suicide by jumping off a roof (Kinda sterotypically Korean, huh? I've heard the Korean jumping off the roof thing from other Asian sources...), and then "Tsukushi" saving him. From what I can tell, I'm really going to like the Tsukushi character.

Dramabeans wrote a review that the guy who plays "Rui" was kinda just imitating Oguri Shun, which upon first glance, yeah, he really does look like he's acting like him. He has the same blond hair/hairstyle, the same voilin thing, and he's even wearing all white. I only saw one scene with him, but it was kinda jarring. And "Domyoji's" entrance really was pretty cool. His hair is also a lot better than either Jerry or Jun's were.

I also started watching a jdrama, Koizora, which I'm pretty sure [livejournal.com profile] sn0tcat told me about previously... I like it so far, but it's going to be sad. Luckily it's only 6 episodes, so the sadness won't be horrible prolonged. I don't actually find the main dude (Seto Koji) attractive at all, but I'm drawn to his blonde hair. What can I say... I'm easy. Mizusawa Elena, on the other hand, is one of the prettiest girls I've ever seen in my life (she's only 16!!!).

I'm probably going to write my review of the HYD movie tomorrow (during work! Yay for slacking off!), and do the screencaps tomorrow night. I'm a little too tired for the full undertaking tonight.

That being said, three things;

1. I adore Rui with all my heart. He's one of the best characters ever, and is one of the only ones who can compete with Kei-kun for my heart (you know, if they existed). Seriously, ALL the Rui scenes made me inordinately happy. It also reminded me just how freaking much I love Oguri Shun. He was my first drama crush. I still blame the blonde..
2. That being said, Domyoji and Tsukushi are perfect together. More then perfect, they're destined. I always had difficulties with the manga and the dramas, because I love Rui so much, and naturally want him to be happy (in the anime this was never an issue. In fact, I didn't much like Rui in the anime... he ended up with Shizuka anyway). But despite all this, I can't deny that Domyoji and Tsukushi belong together.
3. It ended very nicely. It was not true to the manga ending at all, but whatever. I kinda don't care at this point. I like how they portrayed Soujiro and Yuuki at the ending. It was terribly cute. I felt bad for Rui though. Oh, that damn character breaks my heart. But I had to share this, because I thought it was an adorable ending, the last scene.

The last scene, the wedding picture, which transforms into a manga version. It's obviously drawn by Kamio Yoko too, which makes it all the more special. I nearly started crying when I saw it. It was perfect. The most amazing, perfect ending to an amazing story.

I can't satisfactorily convey just how happy this movie made me. I've had limited experience with japanese movies, and was previously disappointed (I'm looking at you, Lovely Complex), so to have this one exceed my expectations was fabulous. I'm significantly tougher on movies than I am on dramas (I think this is because I've studied film theory. If I were ever to get another bachelors degree, it would be in film studies), so yeah, just happiness all around!

Oh, speaking of, wiki just told me this; "Also, in one of the first volumes of Cat Street, Yoko Kamio admitted that she planned to start a sequel to Hana Yori Dango in the near future." I hope it's true. As much as I'd like to think that I'd be satisfied with things ending as they are, I want more, damn it. *greedy*

I bought the 100 userpic thing today. I currently have 55. 8 of those are of Ikuta Toma (more than of anyone else)... I'm not exactly sure why... I mean, I love him and everything, but I love Zai Zai more, and I only have 4 of him. Whatever.
uisceros: (Shun-kun)
I'm about half finished with Hana Yori Dango Final. I've been watching it on my tiny little ipod screen...

I'm going to write up a formal post/review later, once I'm done, but I had to share this awesome tidbit.

I was watching it, and there's a hotel owner character in it, and I was like "Wow! Hotel guy is hot!", and then I got a better look at him, and I was like "....is that Takano?!" (Takano = Fujiki Naohito's character in Hotaru no Hikari... I didn't know the actor name, but I totally know his character!). Turns out I was right. It totally IS him! I LOVE it when I recognize actors!

Other things from the first half;

- There's a flaming foot. Seriously. A foot is on fire.
- In Nevada, Domyoji and this big ass trucker dude get in an argument (and Domyoji cutely says "What the fuck are you doing"!! It's so not threatening in a japanese accent), that culminates in them hugging, and the trucker getting an autograph. Oh Japan, you kill me with your cuteness!
- Rui is made of awesome. I will never not love him.
