1. What is the age of consent in Japan? Is there such a thing? Because I was going to write
2. I watched all of the twdrama Why Why Love, and while a good bit of it was adorable, the last three episodes made me want to punch myself in the face. It was a fun experience, though, as I watched it more or less "with" biases, and we emailed back and forth about it. Have a fun selection of emailed comments!
Im not going to clarify who said what unless it's amazing, as both of us said a lot of the same things:
EVERYONE IN RAINIE'S FAMILY NEEDS TO BE PUNCHED IN THE FACE
ARGH MIKE WHY IS YOUR MULLET SO IRRESISTABLE TO WOMEN?!
So, ep 4, Rainie is sitting in the park (THE SAME PARK WE SEE EIGHT
TIMES IN DBY), feeling sorry for herself, because she has no place to
stay, and drunk dude taps her on the shoulder and leers and invites
himself over, if you know what i mean.
at which point, Rainie takes off screaming for help. as you do, if
it's the middle of the night, and creepy drunk dude wants to get with
Mike He is passing by, hears her screams, looks alarmed and is poised
to go rescue the fair damsel when Rainie fucking SNAPS.
She stops dead, snaps her mouth closed, spins on her heel and proceeds
to beat the everloving CRAP out of the guy with her handbag.
WHO NEEDS RESCUING? WE DONT GOT NO MAIDENS IN NEED OF RESCUE. ALL WE
GOT IS GIRLS WHO KICK ASS.
*cries with laughter* So, Kingone bashes open the door, and she
shrieks and throws the towel over his face so he doesnt see
anything..or..anyone, and then Mike He comes rolling over and she is
STILL NAKED and he's just staring and she's yelling about how she
sprained her ankle and HE'S STILL LOOKING AND SHE IS STILL NAKED and
neither seem extremely bothered by this! LMAO FOREVER.
Obviously he(Kingone)'s kind but we get that he's somewhat aloof, even at work, and then when he snaps HE REALLY FUCKING SNAPS and I actually gasped when his tone turned cruel and he flung the money at her like she was a dirty whore.
Let's start this episode by dousing Bitchface assistant in kerosene!
"you've never stood up for yourself before! clearly, this girl is having an EVIL EFFECT on you!"
ep 8 - so far, bitchface is a bitch, Mike He looks hot while wet. Mike
He is a giant woobie, and Mike He just told Bitchface to step off and
stop treating him like a useful toy when his older brother isnt
around. GO MIKE HE. No..no, Mike He..dont! Dont! DONT GIVE ME THE
WOOBIE FACE! *dies*
I was going to say "I think every drama should have a scene where the male lead runs somewhere in the rain" but pretty much every drama DOES have a scene like that so I'll change it to "I think every drama should have a scene where Mike He Runs somewhere in the rain". How awesome would that be? I might have finished some of the crappier dramas that I abandoned (Kurosagi, I'm looking at you) if Mike was randomly in it running somewhere.
Note to self: don't send children to the Bitchface School of Bitchfacery because they will not learn valuable life lessons.
does asia HONESTLY think men are this incredibly out of control? REALLY, guys. LEARN TO MASTURBATE
LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE AND STOP THINKING ABOUT ASSAULTING GIRLS WHILE THEY SLEEP.
Bitchface, what the HELL did you do to your hair? Did you lose a
fight with your cat while getting out of bed this morning?
GAAAAH. CLOSE YOUR EYES AND OPEN YOUR MOUTH. THIS ISNT DIFFICULT FOR
FUCKS SAKE. HE"S DOING ALLLLLL THE WORK (and hell, he is WORKING IT),
AND YOU ARE STANDING THERE. and his faaaace when he pulls back! it's
somewhere between 'oh fuck' 'oh fuck' and 'OH HOLY FUCK.'
..id like to have some sympathy for Bitchface right now, but 1) my
heart breaks for Kingone, and 2) she looks like a reject from a music
video for Flashdance.
Rainie, you could at LEAST tell the man the truth. i cant marry you.
i love your stupid brother. can we have a threesome?
THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THIS DRAMA HAS NEEDED! KINGONE AND MIKE HE IN A
FIST FIGHT! *gleeeeee*
..it would be better if they were half naked, but ill take what i can get.
ooh! your faces are entirely too close together, and you're all sweaty
and angry! MAKE OUT RIGHT NOW! I will totally accept angry frottage
up against the pillar of the parking garage!
OMG ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? SHE DIES AS SOON AS HE CALLS HER MOM?
BEFORE SHE EVEN APOLOGIZES OR EXPLAINS OR FUCKING ANYTHING? I HATE
THIS SHOW. I HATE HER. KINGONE IS *BREAKING* AND YOU FUCKING DIE
BECAUSE HE CALLS YOU MOM. MAN THE FUCK UP AND GET UP AND TALK TO YOUR
SON. RAGE! RAGE! FLAMES! ON THE SIDE OF MY FACE!
AND HE EATS THE NOODLES THROUGH HIS TEARS WITH HIS DEAD MOTHER LAYING
THERE OH GOD KINGONE COME HERE AND LET ME CUDDLE YOU FOREVER.
I want to be with you! And by with you, he means, I DONT WANT TO DIE A VIRGIN.
she jumps in the pool! *wails* and Kingone jumps after her! *flails
hands hopelessly* I CANT TAKE THIS.
....in the midst of my wailing, i would like to say NGGH, WET KINGONE.
I am so glad Kingone punched you, Mike He. I dont care that you are
dying and the world is going to lose you and your mullet. YOU DESERVE
TO PUNCHED IN YOUR PERFECT FACE.
KINGONE WET AND PROTECTIVE. YES, I WOULD LIKE ONE OF THOSE, PLEASE -
CAN I ADD WHIPPED CREAM AND HERSHEY'S SYRUP TO MY ORDER?
i SWEAR, if Kingone dies and Mike He gets his liver, i am going to
hurt someone. HURT SOMEONE BADLY. WITH KNIVES AND PITCHFORKS. I WILL
BURN THIS ENTIRE FUCKING SHOW IF KINGONE DIES.
That said, if Kingone survives, and opens his eyes to Bitchface, and
smiles and loves her, i am still burning this show, because wtf?
Oh god, crrryyyyyying all over keyboard here - 'we are brothers,' 'if
only one of us can live, i hope its you.' THE ONLY REASON I AM CRYING
IS BECAUSE THESE TWO BOYS ARE BEAUTIFUL. IT SURE AS HELL ISNT BECAUSE
OF THE FUCKING STORYLINE AT THIS POINT.
Well. That was..extremely unsatisfying. Im glad they both lived, even
with the fake out they tried to pull, making us think Mike He and his
hair were gone forever. and im REALLY glad Bitchface and Kingone
didnt get together, and it was pretty damn clear they never would.
otherwise, MEH. DO YOU HEAR ME, SHOW? MEEEH. i want to destroy
everything after the part where Mike He and Rainie dressed up like old
people. because that was so far beyond adorable, i dont even know how
to describe it.
3. Randomly, I watched a weird little Korean movie called "He Was Cool," last night, and Im still mulling it over and trying to decide if I liked it. It was cute, and I adored the premise-
A cute young thing in high school accidentally posts a message to a mean voc school bully. He calls and threatens to kill her. While trying to get away from school without getting her ass kicked, she climbs over the wall and falls right on top of the bully and RIGHT ON HIS LIPS. When she pries herself off, he tells her that was his first kiss, and now she has to take responsibility and marry him.
It's uneven, with them getting together..ish, about halfway through, and then weird things happening. As they do in movies. And he alternates between bully and woobie, and she alternates between AAAH SCARY BOY and AWWW SWEET (scary) BOY. and there are misunderstandings and lots of people getting beat up.
so, i dont know. Anyone else seen it? any thoughts?
4. Note to self: get off ass and write up Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon post.
5. I have no idea what drama to watch now. Im in a weird mood where i dont want to start anything new, drama wise. And Im running low on asian movies. Any recs for romantic comedy asian movies?
6. Brandus cut Voldemort's hair. There is one patch that he missed that sticks out, and instead of fixing it, I laugh. Because I am such a good mother.
7. I missed wishing people happy birthday on here, although I did it privately. Happy birthdays, rinalin, anenko, and teffy! I hope I didnt miss anyone...
8. Korean Hana Yori Dango continues to be COMPLETELY AWESOME. I havent watched ep 4 yet, but ep 3! the ducks! his amusment at her irritation! how BIG he really is in comparison to her! how he isnt trying to torment her to make her cry and quit school - he's just trying to get a rise out of her! Rui pretty! he practically makes a confession to her there at the bar, and then he gets all embarrassed and runs away! and then she pukes on him! *cracks up*
