I should re-title this blog Annals of a K-drama Watcher in Retreat or something.

Still entirely, thoroughly, disinterested in current k-drama. Can anything awaken me from my stupor?

Why, actually, yes. PD Ahn Pan Seok can. If he is just fractionally on form, the uncompromising artist who crafted A Wife’s Credentials and The End of the World can totally rouse me from my k-drama ennui. I’m SO EXCITED. 17 March, baby. A Secret Love Affair.


But, wait. Kim Hee Ae? Is that you? That lovely, mild woman from A Wife’s Credentials? Is that really you? You look so… different… 0_0

Double hooray for Yoo Ah In, if nothing else he should draw in the fangirls and ensure that SOMEONE will be subbing this sucker, and maybe this time I won’t have to wait three months before I can watch Ahn Pan Seok weave his magic.

In the meantime, I’m probably going to continue keeping a low profile on current k-dramas (and hence, nearly zero blogging potential), while I focus on munching my way through legacy such as Shin Don. Which is, incidentally, by way of slow cook, as at Episode 21 getting way past “mildly interesting” to “simmering”. Nom Nom.

In other news, Pride totally fizzled out. Totally. By the end, smothered by noble idiocy and overkill-by-Kimataku (like, He’s So Cool So Why Bother With Sense or Characterisation?) I was wondering why I was bothering. Sigh. Very sad, it is.

What a unremitting grump I’m becoming! Soon, y’all will just be yelling at me, “Just stop blogging, already!”

Gah. I’ve been such a terrible blogger. My life has been a K-drama watching wasteland, and there’s a strong argument for not blogging at all, if I have nothing to say about k-drama. It is perhaps fitting, then, that my post picture is that of a drama not from Korea, but Japan.

Pride DVD

Why have I taken this long to watch 2004’s Pride? I can’t really say, but it is shame on my Kimutaku-loving fangirl heart (I fell in love with his voice in Howl’s Moving Castle, can you believe it). Well, partly I had to find decent subs (those on my store-bought DVD are well-nigh incomprehensible), which are well worth the effort. Anyways, now I’m all fired up and running on Pride, I’m one very very happy tv bunny.

Read on for witterings about Kimutaku’s perfection, the trainwreck that was The Heirs, thoughts on The Queen’s Classroom, and musings on Shin Don. And eclectic ranting about television generally.
