My Three Dramas

I spent the afternoon watching in rapt fascination as the whole Myung Wol the Spy thing unfolded. Or should I say imploded? Holy crap, it's like a drama! It's like a drama about a drama THAT'S ABOUT A DRAMA. This is getting so meta it's like universes folding in upon themselves.

Let me just say that until Han Ye Seul jetted off to America this afternoon, I was firmly in her corner, because I think the way they shoot dramas is CRAZY. Like, that story making the rounds while City Hunter was airing about Lee Min Ho performing a stunt and then not getting up off the ground because he fell asleep in the aftermath is funny until you actually start to think about how exhausted someone has to be in order for that to happen. No wonder dramas are plagued with so many car accidents. All the drivers are sleep-deprived!

Scent of a Woman, on the other hand, is pure LOVE. )

Stuff. And things. Plus the ever-present drama.

I can haz Harry Potter tickets! For the premiere on Wednesday! (Well, there is the midnight showing on Tuesday night, but sometimes you've just got to admit you're an adult now and work responsibilities have to take priority.)

For the past few weeks I've slowly been migrating three more bookcases to my living room from my bedroom. "Slowly" because it's been hot and/or muggy the whole time, and I haven't exactly been jumping for joy about vacuuming/carrying/shelving books for hours on end. Anyway, my livingroom now has ten bookcases and my bedroom only has three! Soon to be two! Which means there's tons of space! Which of course means I'm surfing the web in search of new furniture.

First up: a bedside table. )

Now for the part where I curse Danish design. For being both great and ridiculously overpriced. )

My kdrama obsession continues unabated.

Dream High )

Heartstrings/You've Fallen for Me )

City Hunter )

Romance Town )

In conclusion, can it be Monday Tuesday now so I can see Myung Wol the Spy? *is officially getting excited*

I'm obsessed. Film at eleven.

I'm going to keep talking about City Hunter, because I can't not, if you know what I mean (and I think those of you watching do).

I had to watch the first few minutes of episode 12 just now because the episode 11 cliffhanger was killing me. )

So, I linked this vid on Tumblr yesterday, and it's so brilliant. I never really get excited about vids, but this one? Oh, I've watched it at least 50 times. It's the timing thing, especially at 0:12-0:17 and 0:48-0:54. Those two sequences leave me breathless every single time. Embedded under the cut. )

Oh yeah, and Lie to Me ended. )

I write LJ posts, therefore I am?

My job is so awesome sometimes. Like today, the Daily Show file was late so the translator and I made our own fun by having an extended email conversation using really bad translations of English idioms. (And I'm not even counting the fact that I get paid to watch The Daily Show. Every. Single. Day.)

I stayed up till 1 am watching the first two episodes of True Blood season 4. )

I am seriously obsessed with City Hunter, checking the Tumblr tag several times a day. I'm even to the point where I rewatch and notice things that make me want to write meta. Meta! About a kdrama! I don't even know, you guys, how come this drama is so GOOD?

Of course, I forget everything I want to say if I don't write it down immediately. The only two things I do remember... )

Lie to Me through episode 14 )

Finished Best Love. )

Still keeping up with Romance Town )

Saw that there were 16 episodes of Baby-Faced Beauty and watched that )
