Because if you've ever wanted to see Takei Emi covered in blood while lightning flashes behind her walk of murder, this is your drama. If you've ever thought The Parent Trap had a good plot but lacked the revenge schemes and cross-generational incest, this is your drama. If you ever watched Jotei and thought "you know, this is just too realistic," then this is your drama.





Basic plot: long-lost twins meet by chance and decide to exchange lives. One is an orphaned prostitute who makes her living cleaning the toilets of a cabaret, and the other is a rich, well-to-do heiress of a huge family fortune. When they trade places, HIJINKS ENSUE.

And by hijinks I mean doom.

intellectual observation!

We only use 10% of our brains... because the other 90% is devoted to shipping and Tumblr.

SPEC SPECIAL IS OUT.

THERE ARE ENGLISH SUBS.

EXPECT A MASSIVE POST LATER BECAUSE I ALREADY SKIMMED AND SAW THIS SCENE: Collapse )

Also, does anyone want to talk about the apparent US remake? It sounds really vague and I had to double-check the date to make sure it wasn't a late April's fool prank, but if it's true... man, I think this is the first Asia-to-America remake I would ever be excited about. CAN YOU IMAGINE AN AMERICAN VERSION OF TOMA?



Everyone wants to whine about a female John Watson. WELL HERE IS YOUR FEMALE SHERLOCK, GUYS. WE COULD HAVE HER. SHE COULD EXIST.
yeah baby i like it like that

"It's always the quiet ones." Perfect for describing both imperialist assassins and unexpected sexy.

I was obsessively re-watching the the trailer for the live-action Rurouni Kenshin movie (YESSSSSSSS) when it suddenly occurred to me that Sato Takeru was looking mighty gorgeous. Naturally, I went onto Tumblr to investigate.

And.

Uh.



WHAT THE FUCK? WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN?



REMEMBER WHEN HE LOOKED LIKE THIS?

I don't know what universe I'm in anymore.

How to be Dal Ja in three easy steps:

1: Paint nails.
2: Go out drinking.
3: Wake up with a hangover and two men in your bed.



She freaks out only slightly more than Seo Do, who responds to Tae Bong's "Nothing happened!!" by clutching his ass and wailing "THEN WHY DOES IT HURT?"





TAE BONG, ASS BANDIT.



THAT AWKWARD MOMENT WHEN YOUR LIVING ROOM IS CROWDED BY YOUR EX-BOYFRIEND, YOUR FAKE BOYFRIEND, AND YOUR NEW BOYFRIEND WHO IS ALREADY MARRIED.

I just.

I can't even.

WHERE HAS THIS DRAMA BEEN ALL MY LIFE?
intellectual observation!

We interrupt your regularly scheduled flist for an interlude of OH MY GOD SO PRETTY.

A thousand years after it aired and I finally started Dal Ja's Spring. I'd also like to inform everyone that I'll be marrying Lee Min Ki in the fall. It will be a beautiful ceremony. You're all invited.



ALSO, DAL JA IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL.



Seriously, I've found the perfect fictional representation of my life and she's a 33-year-old Korean woman with crazy hair and a fake boyfriend. I am not actually any of these things, but I feel like Dal Ja represents my soul. She hates mornings, drinks too much, has vivid daydreams of turning into the Bride and killing her co-workers (LOL) and oh, she hired a hot young boyfriend to get back at her douchebag ex, and honestly, who hasn't done that at least once?



ONE OF HER FANTASIES. WHICH INVOLVES THROWING LEE MIN KI AGAINST THE WALL AND RAVISHING HIS LIPS.







YES. YES. THIS IS THE SECOND EPISODE. His character is already saying things like "holding hands is included in the contract, but for an extra fee we can arrange something more intimate." HE IS BASICALLY A REALLY PRETTY PROSTITUTE DAL JA YOU NEED TO HIT THAT OMGGGGGGG.
I LOVE YOU ON NATIONAL TELEVISION

Of course it's all happening in your head, Byung Gun, but why should that mean it isn't real?

So I finished What's Up, and I was going to say something flippant like "BEST DRAMA OF THE YEAR" but... uh... considering that the competition so far has been "Yamapi The Funeral Director" and "My Mom Keeps Getting Hit On By My Friends and It Makes Me Uncomfortable", I think the superiority of What's Up is a given.

My favorite characters by the end:

5: PROFESSOR YANG
4: Jae Hun
3: Soo Bin (it took me ten eps to remember his name BUT HE WAS WORTH IT)
2: Byung Gun (♥___♥)
1: Doo Ri and everything she touched and everything she chose to be

the best told untold love story

Six eps into What's Up...

AND IT IS GODDAMNED GLORIOUS.

Hilarity + human drama + music + ensemble cast = A++ WOULD FLAIL AGAIN.



If you don't know, and you probably already do since I'm so late to the bandwagon, but if you don't, What's Up is a kind of funny-dramatic-slice-of-life musical tragicomedy full of awesomeness. It's all about music and friendship and chasing your dreams and occasionally falling down the stairs to gaze at the moon and sob furiously about life. The students are both amazing eyecandy and really interesting human beings. They butcher English songs and remix Korean ones too. THERE ARE RANDOM GREASE NUMBERS. COMPLETE WITH 80S HAIR. The professors look like Oh Man Suk and walk around drinking heavily.

EVERYONE MUST WATCH THIS DRAMA. YOU ARE MISSING SO MUCH.

Also, fair warning, for every person who compares it to Heartstrings or Dream High I'm going to scratch off my skin and send it to Daesung in the mail.

Please think of Daesung.
"......HALF siblings."

ALSO I'M NOT DEAD, HURRAH

WHERE ARE YOU PEOPLE GETTING WHAT'S UP?

I'm sorry, I know I should offer a better explanation for my sudden and inexplicable disappearance, but I've been catching up with my flist and everyone is talking about What's Up and I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THAT DRAMA OVER A YEAR.

WHERE IS IT.

WHERE.

I MUST HAVE IT IN MY GREEDY HANDS.
