alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (ARASHI: Sho Shy)
Things I am looking for, oh mighty flist:

mp3s:
- Nicholas Teo singing "Little Turtle" from Smiling Pasta
- S.H.E.'s Boom Boom Boom (actually, anything S.H.E., but that song in particular)
- Big Bang stuff - i have a random assortment of songs, but...i need more
- G-Dragon stuff, because i need help omg
- MBLAQ, because they're hilariously lulzy
- clearly, i need more asian ladies on my playlists. please to be helping? i like upbeat stuff. I like S.H.E. and 2NE1, if that helps at all.
- anything else you want me to listen to for whatever reason


Otherwise, what I have been doing:

I got sucked into Big Bang a couple of weekends ago. I blame [livejournal.com profile] uisceros and this post primarily. I can now recognize almost everyone 95% of the time.

I find G-Dragon alternately hot and 12. it's disconcerting.

It makes me grin like an idiot every time T.O.P. spells his name in a song, and I think it's "Always" where they say, "Bang 'em," but everytime I hear it I have to laugh and clap my hands in sheer joy.

I downloaded some icons. i was looking for G-Dragon, but ended up with several of Young Bae. um..oops? So, if you have links or whatever to additional icons of Big Bang awesomeness, please to share.

also, send help, i cant stop listening to Garu Garu GO! and the Japanese version of Baby, Baby.


I watched You're Beautiful, and while the first several episodes were cringe inducing in entirely too many spots, once the show really got going, it was fairly awesome. it's crack, of course, because HELLO, it's a show about a nun crossdressing to join a boyband, but there is also a lot of sweetness and a lot of truth underneath the insanity.

Tae Kyung is amazingly wonderful, completely uptight, totally anal, and a SERIOUSLY good guy underneath all the repression and mommy issues. i really liked that he never denied his feelings. yes, it took him a while to figure it out, but once he got that he did like her, he didn't avoid it. and there wasnt any of the "I WILL DENY OUR LOVE TO PROTECT YOU" from either side, which was awesome.

Mi Nam/Mi Nyu was as dumb as a brick for a while, but once she started sticking up for herself a little bit, i liked her SO much more. and i could wave away a lot of her stupidity by her being very sheltered and joining the convent as that seemed like the most logical place for her to go.

the fact that all three of the guys loved Mi Nam/Mi Nyu was annoying as crap, but mentally it has lead to happy places where the real Mi Nam and Shin Woo experience porn in several ways, so hey! it's all good! the real Mi Nam was pretty fucking awesome, too, and I loved that how they did the reveal! I wish we had seen more of him!

ALSO, THE FANFIC CONVERSATION!!! THE LOVE TRIANGLE OF THE BOYS!!!

again, additional icons would be lovely. links?


ALSO, HELLO IT IS SPRING BREAK OMG YAYYYYYY!!!!!

[profile] princess_dexter asked, forever ago, about my Top Five Drama Heroes. Which I fully plan to do. At some point. But for now? My Top Five Drama Heroines.

Also, Im betting there are some surprises on here for most people. Like, I really really love Mei-chan, but Mei isn't on my list. For various reasons. I got a little wordy describing why I love these ladies, so..sorry? Also, to no one's surprise, I really really like ladies with strength and smarts.





1. Makino - Hana Yori Dango
Girl is BAD.ASS. She's got crazy guts. She punches Domyouji in the face and remains entirely highly wildly skeptical of continued professed love for her. Actually, she thinks he's insane. She stands up to Darth Mama, who is scary enough to make anybody pee their pants - but she isn't stupid. She walks out of there going OH CRAP WHAT DID I JUST DO? She doesn't back down, she doesn't give up, she loves her family, and will do anything to keep them safe and fed. And all this while being courted in weird ways by a man who should probably be considered a psychopath.



2. Momo - ToGetHer/Superstar Express
Momo, for all that she is a shut in and hates being in the public eye, is no shrinking violet. She's fierce in her own way, standing up for what she thinks, and does NOT let Mars walk all over her. Add to that, she has a very big heart, and is always willing to help the people she is close to. She's independent in a quiet way, and, while she doesn't give any bullies well deserved beat downs, she doesn't let them break her, either.



3. Ji-Eun - Full House
jdKLASJAKJDSAKLS THIS STUPID SHOW. And yet, I love this girl, as much as I want to punch myself in the face for saying it. Yes, she's immature and her squabbles with Young-Jae are nothing short of pulling each other's pigtails and kicking each other in the shins, but she is hilarious, tough, and frequently wears completely inappropriate heels. SHE LAUNCHES HERSELF OFF THE GROUND TO HEADBUTT YOUNG-JAE IN THE FACE. She drops Young-Jae's grandmother while trying to help her, and the cherry on the top is the fact that she is a FANFIC WRITER.



4. Mako/Sailor Jupiter - Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon
I know Usagi is the headliner here, and I love her very much, too. But there is something about Mako that I find so completely compelling. She's cheerful, tomboyish, and takes care of herself. She's a 14 year old who lives on her own, cooks for fun, and is so thrilled to have close friends, even though she is hesitant to get close to anyone. Plus, I find her really really hot. She has this little freckle right above her lip, and my occasional gay breaks through, and I SERIOUSLY want to make out with her and kiss that freckle.



5. Yuki - Summer Snow
Summer Snow is a more realistic, quieter show than I usually go for. There is nothing even resembling crack about it. And yet, one of my favorite ladies. She's another quiet one, having struggled with a severe heart condition for her entire life. It very much restricts the activities she is able to do, and yet, she decides to do something crazy and takes a class in scuba diving. She wants a job, love..life. She loves her father, volunteers with sick children at the hospital, and is willing to risk her health in order to actually live. Also, the quality is kinda crappy on these caps, plus, they are tiny, so you get two

A collection of random thoughts, strung together with numbers and called a post.


1. What is the age of consent in Japan? Is there such a thing? Because I was going to write porn, and realized that, according to American standards, one of my characters is underage. But the other character is possibly several hundred years old, so does it really matter? Nonetheless, inquiring minds and fans of PGSM porn want to know!


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" [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter, and we emailed back and forth about it. Have a fun selection of emailed comments!

cut it out, already )


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, [livejournal.com profile] rinalin, [livejournal.com profile] anenko, and [livejournal.com profile] 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*

Ive been stuck at home for the past two days with Fever McClingypants, so while he was napping and in between Sesame Street songs, I made icons.

It's impossible to watch tv you are interested in with a kid around. Especially if that tv is in a foreign language and requires enough concentration to read subtitles.

So, icons! Comment and credit, no alternations, blah blah blah.

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon:
-The World Destroying OTP-



-Jupiter/Mako is HOT-



-Serenity flings explosions, which is quite possibly my favorite part-


-Dark Mercury/Nephrite, my secondary OTP-




Full House - IF YOU LOVED ME AT ALL, YOU WOULDNT BE LAUGHING RIGHT NOW




TW Hana Kimi: You know what would make this show even better? MORE MAKEOUTS.
alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (MOVIE: Weighed and Measured)
I am LOVING the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango, which I wasnt expecting! But then the drama part of my flist kept talking about it, and posting caps, and squeeing, and really, if you promise me that the female protagonist kicks the male lead IN THE FACE during the first two episodes, YOU TOTALLY HAVE MY COMPLETE ATTENTION.

It has a very different feel then the jdrama - or maybe Im projecting, because I know the story. Hmm.

Anyway, in the jdrama, Domyouji comes across as PURE UNADULTERATED EVIL. He beats people up while screaming with rage! He knocks down one of the bitches! He is REALLY trying to get Makino to just GO THE FUCK AWAY. F4 seems more afraid of him..or at least unwilling to make him angry. His woobification takes a while. I didn't fall for Dorkface until ep 4, when he's in the rain and he's waiting and then I began to flail and HAVENT STOPPED YET.

In the kdrama, Jun Pyo is just..a bully. He's a BIGGER bully then the others, but he's just a bully. And just because he's bored. I havent seen him hit anyone yet, and Ive seen Jandi smear him with ice cream and kick him in the face! Instead of giving her a makeover to make her GO THE FUCK AWAY, he gives her a makeover to tell her she can be his SECRET GIRLFRIEND and he'll totally say hi to her in private. Because he can tell she's in love with him. LMAO FOREVER. His friends? LAUGH when they see a girl half his size school him WITH HER FISTS. When he declares she must be in love with him, they crack up! They think it's hilarious to see him get taken down several pegs. I already love him! He's a total dork! He has no social skills! He has NO IDEA why on earth Jandi wouldnt like him!

I already love this show, and Ive only seen two episodes!

It doesnt hurt that Jandi (Makino) is AWESOME. Girl is hardcore, and I love her for it. She doesnt even want to BE at this stupid school! *glee*

I need icons.




Soon, I will write up a post about why my head hurts SO FUCKING MUCH from beating it against a table while watching Why Why Love (HINT: THE END HAS NO CONNECTION TO THE BEGINNING. OUT OF NOWHERE), but why Mike He and his hair continue to charm me, and why Kingone REALLY needs a drama where he gets the girl already!

Also, soon, I will write up that epic post about Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, and why i have no shame at all in admitting i love its silly, goofy, world-ending wonderfulness! *spins in glee* (Hint: Sailor Jupiter is hot. Mamoru is hot. Turtle guy is too cute for words. Serenity blows shit up!)
alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (PGSM: Sailor Moon)
I should be either:
A) wallowing in the depths of the yuletide archive gleefully
B) writing up an epic post about why I have no dignity, love Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, and am remarkably cheerful about that loss of dignity
C) watching ep 4 of Why Why Love

However,
my eyes are about to fall out from too much reading, and i can no longer keep fandoms straight
every time i try to write this up, i get distracted by wanting to provide pictorial proof, and i havent finished gathering it yet
the subs arent working, so i have to redownload, and currently, im in the middle of downloading Butterfly Lovers, or some cheesy HK movie with Wu Zun in it. Mmmmm.

So, I decided that beating myself in the face with a hammer would be much more entertaining, so I started Snow Queen, and DEAR FUCKING JESUS I AM LESS THAT TWO MINUTES IN AND IM PRETTY SURE THE TWO LEADS ARE ALREADY DEAD.

Also? just to point out, the slightest little thing...you know, if he really IS in fucking Lapland, his FACE WOULD FREEZE OFF WITHOUT SOMETHING OVER IT. And then he falls off a cliff.


WHY AM I WATCHING THIS? I already know Korea hates me and, if the two leads don't die, they are probably related. Or involved in a life of crime. Or in love with their sisters. AND THEN WILL END UP KILLING EACH OTHER.

AHAHAHAHA, i have been whining and bitching and moaning and OMG POSTING FIC about this stupid stupid show, but today? TODAY? I get to share something completely joyful and blinding with my beloved flist.

Not only did [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter lovingly devote her November to counting down her 20 hottest asian guys (tag title=hovember), which you should really go check out, because YUM -

She also dedicated a long period of time, her retinas and probably many many tears of pain to chronicling, in detail, the sheer HORROR that is Young-Jae's, the male lead's wardrobe in the kdrama, Full House.

You should check it out.

It kinda makes me scream with laughter, want to dig out my eyes with a rusty spoon and rewatch the damned show omg ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

PS. OH GOD I HAVE ICONS NOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME

alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (ACTOR: Hitchhiker)
Oh god, I finished watching Full House, and it's possible that the last half hour might just have made every single bit of my endless pain worth it, but now im thinking back on the stupid show FONDLY and i want to rewatch certain scenes and i have BUNNIES and OMG I HAD TO CREATE A NEW TAG JUST TO CONTAIN MY PAIN.

Seriously, this show is STUPID and the writing is completely nonsensical in some places and the drama is POINTLESS and drawn out for no reason, but there is just something adorable about the love story and asljkaklsal HATE.

and you cannot convince me (and [livejournal.com profile] anenko agrees with me) that there was not sexing going on in that tent on the pier. YOU CANNOT CONVINCE ME. THERE IS NO OTHER REASON FOR HIM TO BE HIDING (HIDING! OMG SO CUTE!) WITH HIS FACE BURIED IN THE BLANKET THE NEXT MORNING.



Sexing. I dont care that they woke up fully dressed. WRITE ME PORN.

However! I am posting because i have COME TO A REALIZATION.

I KNOW WHY YOUNG-JAE'S CLOTHES ARE HORRIFIC.

Don't believe me about the fashion disasters? HERE IS ONE TINY EXAMPLE.


Why the scarf? Why is the shirt slit down practically to his belly button? Why is it SLEEVELESS OH GOD.

I KNOW WHY HE WEARS THESE HORRIBLE THINGS HE CALLS CLOTHES.

It is pretty much stated outright throughout the entire stupid show (omg my life, i hate it so), that bitchface is the one who dresses him. See, she has/works in this clothing store, and every time he wants a fix of bitchface ('cause he's addicted and follows her around LIKE A PUPPY and i hate her a lot), he wanders over to the store to spend too much money on clothes.

so, i figure, she gets sick of him coming over ALL THE TIME (like a PUPPY. it's disgusting.) and she starts running out of actual ATTRACTIVE clothes, so she just starts grabbing whatever horrible atrocity comes to hand and reassures him it is the height of fashion! Trust me, my puppy! And no, i dont want to go get dinner, unless your hot friend is going and you're paying, HERE WEAR THIS.

I am convinced of this. And when you see some of the other crimes against humanity he wears - including a few horrible hats and many shirts that actually make me weep with pain, YOU WILL BELIEVE IT.


This? This, however, is the picture on the wall. of his BEDROOM. It is practically life sized. It lights up. LMAO FOREVER.
alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (BUFFY: Animal Crackers)
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. [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter 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!

ATTENTION: I know that being sucked into Asian drama has caused many of you my flist to become remarkably bored. While I promise that i still love Firefly and many other English fandoms, and do, in fact, have full intentions of finishing both Wingtip and Fun and Games, I know that many of you have no interest in Japanese, Taiwanese, or Korean entertainment. EVEN THOUGH YOU TOTALLY SHOULD.

So, I declare today to be DeFriending Amnesty day. Should you have no interest in my current interests at this time, or we never comment on each other's posts, or you just don't like the shirt I am wearing today (AND WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME WEARING A KEYSTONE CAMP TSHIRT, HUH?), please, feel free to defriend. It won't hurt my feelings.



IN OTHER, MORE ASIAN NEWS! Ive finished more dramas, YAY! (Here is where the defriending really starts...ready? GO!)

HERE is the List of DOOOOM, which includes things Ive seen, things I've given up on completely, and things I want to see. Things shift from catagory to catagory fairly easily, so sometimes things will move from things Im watching to things Ive abandoned to things ive finished. It's magic that way.

anyway, things Ive seen lately or forgot to talk about last time around:

Devil Beside You:
Ahrang's deskwalk continues to be sexy and he continues to be underage DAMN YOU TAIWAN )

Yasuko to Kenji:
Oki's angry faces crack me up completely, as do Erika's fireball eyes )

My Name is Kim Sam Soon/My Lovely Sam Soon:
There is more bathroom humor here then I am normally comfortable with, much less comfortable laughing at )

Coffee Prince:
sexual confusion, gender bending, cross dressing and a doggy! )
alianora: Sakurai Sho from Arashi, hand over one eye (NwP: Nobuta Power Enter!)
Yes, it's anal. No, nobody but me cares, but hey, I gotta track them SOMEHOW.

Stars are for basic rating, no details.

Japan )

Taiwan )

Korea )


Feel free to squee, flail, or bitch at me about any of these or anything else i should add to the list somewhere.

*I WOULD LIKE TO STICKY THIS BUT THE BASTARD WONT LET ME. RARR.
