BUFFY: Animal Crackers

A Pair of Aces

Oh my god, y'all. Full House (the Korean drama, not the one with uncle Jesse) is the dumbest show on earth and i want to kill someone but i can't turn it off. *weeps*

I got through the first two episodes by the occasional use of the fast forward button (SECONDARY CHICK, I AM LOOKING AT YOU), some swearing, and the realization that i had nothing better to do.

after that..i..kinda got into it.

but it starts off SO BADLY.

She! is adorable and a writer and has a gorgeous house and highly suspicious acting friends. SURPRISE! they say. YOU WON A TRIP TO SOMEPLACE NOT HERE! WHAT? OF COURSE ALL EXPENSES PAID? WOULD WE LIE?

and then they sell her house and all her furniture. and steal her savings. and take out a loan in her name.

and y'all, i knew I was doomed about this show when i started FINDING HER FRIENDS FUNNY. i spent the first three episodes or so hissing at the screen when they showed up or were mentioned, and now i just chuckle. OH SO FUNNY! HE JUST TOLD THE BOSS ABOUT THE CONTRACT MARRIAGE! HEE! *facepalm*

what sent me into fits, though, was how the bank people and the realtor just..shrug it off. like it's something that happens all the time! OOPS! Somebody sold your house! Whoopsie! Nothing we can do, no ma'am! I couldnt get over it! I threw things! I swore out loud! My husband thinks Im possessed!

I got through the first two episodes on boredom and swear words. By episode three, I was watching out of vague interest to see how many times Young-Jae and Ji-eun could possibly encounter each other in bizarre ways, figuring out how long it would take them to get their heads out of their asses and realize they loved each other, and horrified fascination to see what horrible crime against humanity Young-Jae would next call an outfit.

I mean it. Seriously. biases is supposedly putting together a picspam of the horrors he wears and calls "fashion," and i will point you there as soon as possible, because this shit has to be seen to be believed.

so, anyway, girl gets put on plane on scam trip, girl meets famous boy and throws up on him, borrows money from him, then comes home to find him living in her house. you know, typical story, whatever.

but this is actually when it starts getting rather awesome, in an OH GOD WHY AM I WATCHING THIS kind of way. see, there is this girl that Young-Jae likes who desperately needs to be punched in the face or hit with a brick or something, because i hate her and frequently fast forward through her scenes. she spends half of her time telling Young-Jae how much she doesnt like him but dont you DARE fall in love with your fake wife, you hussy, and the other half crying over secondary guy, who, for a change, i actually LIKE.

so, there's this girl, and she's a bitch, and Young-Jae follows her around like a puppy, but she likes Min-Hyuk, who is hot but has his secretary send bitch birthday presents, so obviously, he doesnt care. bitch doesnt like Young-Jae, but wants him at her beck and call.

Through series of random events involving the large amount of money that Ji-eun borrowed from dude, the fact that he's living in the house her dad built and she refuses to leave, and the fact she went through his mail and filched an invite to the fancy party that all four of them magically wound up at, hot guy shoots bitch down, bitch is bitchy to Young-Jae and demands to know if he likes her, at which point he proclaims himself in love with JI-EUN, and plants a big one on her right there.

I AM HALFWAY THROUGH EP 12 AND THAT REMAINS THE ONLY KISS WE HAVE GOTTEN SO FAR AND I HATE THIS DRAMA.

then! he proposes marriage!

no, really. a fake marriage. because 1)he's pissed at bitch who he tried to propose to but she blew him off for the hottie and 2)he's tired of constantly being asked about scandals and who he is dating, and whatever. here's the deal. they get married, stay married for 6 months, she does the cleaning and cooking to pay him back the tons of money she borrowed from him to get home AFTER HER FRIENDS SENT HER TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY SO THEY COULD SELL HER HOUSE, and at the end of the 6 months, she gets a divorce and the house back.

Everybody wins!

I STAYED UP UNTIL 1 AM WATCHING THIS STUPID SHOW LAST NIGHT PEOPLE.

She figured out she was in love with him three freaking episodes ago! He throws temper tantrums and demands she clean things and has the emotional maturity of a CARROT and has not yet caught up with the fact he loves her too, even though he had a complete meltdown when she told him they should just get divorced.

and, of course, hottie likes Ji-Eun, bitch has decided she might maybe like Young-Jae and SHE'D LIKE HIM BACK NOW GIVE TO ME I DONT CARE THAT YOU ARE MARRIED OMG BITCHFACE, and Young-Jae is more emotionally stunted then Dorkface and IT IS POSSIBLE I WILL NOT SURVIVE THIS DRAMA.

SEND HELP AND FASHION CONSULTANTS.


ETA: He wants her to sit there with him while he eats! He doesn't want strangers bothering her about their marriage! WHY AM I FLAPPING MY HANDS IN GLEE?!

ETA YET AGAIN: THE ROSES THE ROSES THE ROSES I AM SHRIEKING CAN YOU HEAR ME? THE ROSES!

Comments

AH-hahahahahaha! The first few episodes of Full House and the last 1/3 are SO AWFUL and yetyet it's so amazing and terribly addicting too. I seriously don't know what it is about FH. So many other dramas I've seen have better plots, better actors, better sets, better dialogue, and oh wait, cay we say emotional maturity? but in the end I"m still not ashamed of overall loving it. it was so freaking addicting the first time I watched it - marathoned it all in like 3 days(granted it was my first Korean drama).

LOVE the roses. It's one of mine(and the universal) favorite scenes.
OH GOD I HATE THIS SHOW. she stays to protect him! he leaves to protect her! hot guy is getting his heart broken, and bitchface won't stop crying and SHOULDNT SHE AT LEAST BRUSH HER HAIR FOR THE LOVE FOR GOD.

..you know, most dramas dont make me this exasperated. WHY CANT I STOP WATCHING?
...I have skimmed. Yes.

This is reaching dangerous levels of Domyouji squeeing. Should I be worried?
NO. RUN AWAY. DUMBEST MOST ADDICTIVE DRAMA TO DATE.

I HATE IT AND THE FACT I CURRENTLY WANT TO HAVE ITS FASHION DEPRIVED BABIES.

i was EXCITED about Dorkface and Hanadan. I JUST WANT TO HIT SOMEONE IN THE FACE DURING THIS.

she's trying to protect him by staying! he's trying to protect her by being mean so she'll leave! HE HAS THE EMOTIONAL IQ OF A ROCK AND SHE HASN'T KILLED HIM YET.
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I WILL NEVER STOP LAUGHING AT YOUR DISGUSTED ADDICTION TO THIS SHOW. It is so so so terrible and yet it's so fantastically addictive and you hate Young-Jae but you love him and the storyline is all over the place and no one seems to be able to stay in the same emotional mindset for more than three seconds and it's almost the best kdrama ever because it is SO DUMB. It kind of fizzles in the last couple of eps but then there's a beautiful scene at the end that makes everything (almost) worthwhile, although I'll never forgive Rain for wearing that green and purple v-neck sweater in the first episode, which is in the top five fashion disasters from the show. (And yes, the fashion post is still coming, I'll try and get it done tomorrow. I've been too distracted lately by Mike He's mullet).

I call bitch 'Cross-eyed Bitch', so I'm glad we're on the same wavelength. And I kind of wish I'd fastforwarded through her scenes the first time I watched it - yes, that's right, I SAT THROUGH EVERY SINGLE MINUTE OF THIS TRAINWRECK THE FIRST TIME. The second time was so much more enjoyable, Cross-eyed Bitch approaching? HI FASTFORWARD BUTTON. I have this sick habit where I have to watch stuff through the first time in case I miss anything and never has it been more painful to me than in Full House.

And I still can't decide if Rain is actually an arrogant emotional cripple or the best actor ever, because I totally dug him in this. I love the mannerisms he's put into the character, like the way he goes all still and then says "What?!" when someone says something unexpected, and then there's that dorky smile that I can't get enough of. ARGH I JUST FINISHED WATCHING IT, STOP MAKING ME WANT TO WATCH IT AGAIN.

*goes to crop screenshots of hideous clothes*
THAT WAS THE BEST LOVE CONFESSION IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD, I SHIT YOU NOT.

OH GOD I HATE THIS SHOW. IT'S 2:15AM AND I JUST FINISHED EP 15 AND THEY STILL HAVENT FUCKING KISSED AND IM SAVING BUCKETS OF MY TEARS TO SEND TO YOU BECAUSE THIS ALL YOUR DAMN FAULT ALSJAKLSJKAK I HATE MYSELF.
*seriously loves your agony* evil chuckle.

SEE? see why evil people make you watch this?
Buckets of tears...to rain down over me?

*crickets chirp*

*tumbleweed blows through*

Sorry, couldn't help myself. But seriously, I must be a sadist because I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING AT YOUR PAIN. I love that this poisonous, delicious crack has filtered through your veins and is taking you over because I HAVE BEEN THERE AND I KNOW.

ARGH what a love story. It is so epic and yet so understated and just so natural, what with two people sharing the same space. I'll admit, I cried during the press conference. CRIED LIKE A BABY ;_______________;
I've heard some people absolutely scorch Rain for his acting in this, but - I kinda suspect it's just cause they know he's a huge music star, because when I first watched it I didn't know anything about him and I thought he acted darn well. But yeah, with him it's hard to tell. Whether he's being an expressionless doll with a range of two expressions or whether he's deliberately putting in all those convincing nuances that turn up.

and I gotta say, the secondary female lead in this is THE MOST ANNOYING, WHINY, SELFISH bitch I've ever seen in a drama, hands-down - and I've seen so many of them in dramas. The first time I watched it I watched all the scenes with her too, why I don't know, I guess I assumed I was supposed to care.
yeah. I don't.

and yet. Love it. In all its trainwreck fabulousness.
Actually, I'm not a kpop fan at all, so I don't know much about Rain's music either. I've heard maybe two songs, and I saw him on The Colbert Report, and that's it, so to me he was just this weird-looking brat who completely suited the part he was playing. Even if his clothing choices are completely inexplicable...

OH GOOD I AM GLAD YOU HATE HER TOO. Seriously, I've only seen a few Korean dramas but the Taiwanese ones generally have a scheming 'other woman' and no one has ever come close to the bile-inducing hatred that washes over me every time I see her stupid cross-eyed face. What were the writers thinking?! She contributed nothing to anyone and I had to look at not only her face but her annoying bras in every scene. ARGH.

But yes. I love how we're all VITRIOL VITRIOL OH GOD IT SUCKED SO BAD and yet every comment ends with "...but I love it." Full House - the abusive boyfriend you just keep going back to. ♥
you are mocking my pain. GOD THIS SHOW. i was seriously sitting here at the end of ep 15, looking at them, and looking and the clock and thinking very seriously that if they dont kiss soon, I AM GOING TO STAB SOMEONE IN THE NECK OMG I MEAN IT.

AND I AM HALFWAY THROUGH EP 16 AND THEY STILL HAVENT KISSED OMG DYING. HE'S ABOUT TO PROPOSE AGAIN AND I AM ALREADY WEEPING A NEW OCEAN BECAUSE WHAT IF SHE TURNS HIM DOWN AGAIN? I WILL HAVE TO SIT THROUGH ANOTHER EMOTIONALLY BACKWARDS SCENE WHERE SHE PRETENDS TO HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HE'S THINKING AND HE'LL SWING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN PRETTY WORDS AND STUPID ORDERS AND IM GOING TO GO THROW MYSELF OFF A CLIFF BRB.

no one seems to be able to stay in the same emotional mindset for more than three seconds

i am starting to think they are all manic-depressive, because a few seconds ago, everyone was crying! now they are at each other's throats again! he understands and wants her to stay so he's doing the cooking/cleaning! Oh, wait, NOW HE'S ORDERING HER AROUND AGAIN.

..the fact that his practicing his second proposal was HILARIOUS did not touch my heart in anyway. OMG NO IT DIDNT STOP LOOKING AT ME *doorslam*
THE CAMPING ON THE BEACH IS ABSOLUTELY NOT ADORABLE. THE CONFESSION WASN'T AWESOME. THE KEY NECKLACE DID NOT MAKE ME SQUEE.

I DO NOT LOVE THIS SHOW AND YOU CAN'T PROVE IT EVEN IF I DO.
I LAUGH at your pain.

. . . if I didn't have a ton of dramas to watch, your posts would be enough to make me rewatch the entire series. It may not be *good,* but it's my second favourite kdrama to date.

I love how stupid YJ is. He's a child with the emotional maturity of a rock. He pouts! He sulks! He pretty much tugs at JE's pigtails!

Kdrama has some of the worst "other women" ever. Most of them are whiny, and emotionally manipulative, and only decide they want the hero back *after* he's fallen in snarky, angsty love with someone else.
everyone laughs at my pain. because they hate me. and you've all been in this hell of Full House addiction before! *flaps*

oh, i..i dont even KNOW. i updated my asian list of doom to add that i finished it, and i didnt know how to rate it! 1 star for stupid? 5 for the hugely addictive crack nature of it? NEGATIVE TEN FOR STEALING PIECES OF MY SOUL.

Young-Jae is SUCH a kindergartner! but his puppy face just kills me dead on the floor, especially if it comes right after him being stupid and childish. and he's such a baby - you would think he was mortally injured every time he gets the littlest bump!

i really did love that Ji-Eun really didnt put up with his shit. she gave as good as she got, and she was EONS ahead of him in realizing her feelings, and her horror at the fact was HILARIOUS.

also, I AM TOTALLY NOT PLOTTING A VID WITH CLIPS FROM THIS SHOW. I AM NOT AND YOU CAN'T MAKE ME ADMIT ANYTHING ELSE.
I zoomed through the series in the space of two days. Maybe three. I wanted to squish Jin-Eun and Young-Jae (except when he's being stupid and breaking up with her for "her own good.")

Young-Jae is SUCH a kindergartner!

I had a hard time believing that Rain is supposed to be sexy after watching Full House. Adorable, sure. But sexy? With his cute little pout and smile?

I *loved* Ji-Eun and Young-Jae's reaction to the events in the tent during the last episode. He's so shy! And she's there: "now you have to do what I say."

I AM TOTALLY NOT PLOTTING A VID WITH CLIPS FROM THIS SHOW. I AM NOT AND YOU CAN'T MAKE ME ADMIT ANYTHING ELSE.

*flails*

Of course, I wouldn't try to pin such a ridiculous thing on you! You are much too mature, with too much good taste to vid to Full House.

(hee!)
