walkwithheroes: [Hong Gil Dong] ([Being Human] Don't Forget Me)
As Giant enters its final stretch - there are nine episodes left, it enters that bit of episodes where things are wrapped up, characters are put in their places, and romances are made or broken. Things are being put into place for the Lee siblings in terms of their romances, and all I can say is: 'WTF Giant writer and producer? WTF.'

Normally two out of three ain't bad. Expect for this. )

I've never seen the writers other dramas - he's only written three others (and one was historical) according to dramawiki. But, someone please tell me he writes happy endings. If MW/Miju aren't happy at the end; if Min-woo turns completely into Satan Jr. . .I may have to cut a b*tch. I just. . . I need a candy.

Today I spent 15 minutes of my 2 and a half hour break swinging (on a swing-set) in the park that is block from my university. I also ate lunch there. It was a nice break from the craziness of my day.

I bought a handbag off of Ebay and love it. But. . .it's coming un-sewn on the inside - a tiny bit is coming undone on the left side. I believe it's just defective, and I'm not bothering to return it (I only planned to use it in December), but it still makes me a bit sad. Still, I only paid $25, so it's not a huge loss. (I'll just bring my lunch everyday this month and break even - college food is freakishly expensive)

I watched Mary Stayed Out All Night RAW tonight, and I really really enjoyed it. I didn't love it, but I had a good time with it. The leads have brilliant chemistry and their characters are adorable together.

I love the way it's a bit tongue-and-cheek about the "corny" K-drama cliches of romance. I love the way our Hero is so laid-back, but has hidden depth. I love the way our Heroine is street and book smart; and, that all she wants is to go back to school. I loved that Secondary Hero is polished and cool, with a bit of a sharp edge.

The show reminded me of Playful Kiss, My Girl, Delightful Girl Choon Hyang and even a bit of Hong Gil Dong - with the way that Wi Mae Ri and Kang Moo Kyul spent the whole episode together and already have an easy friendship; it reminded me of the OTP of HGD during the early episodes.

Three things that I loved, that I'm sure will be reoccurring are: the way Moo Kyul calls Mae Ri "Mary Christmas" when he's drunk or leaving; and, when he's leaving the way she replies with "Happy New Year". The way Moo Kyul freely hugs everyone - he offers hugs like candy. The scar on Mae Ri's forehead being something that Moo Kyul calls "pretty".

I thought the fantasy stuff was a bit over done, but it fits with the naive and pure nature of the Heroine.

Overall, I like the show and will keep watching. Mae Ri is the Korean every-woman: she's smart (both on the street and with books), has goals, works hard, and loves watching dramas. But, she doesn't see her life as a drama - she knows the world is harsh and that rich Prince Charmings aren't going around saving poor girls. Moo Kyul is cool, laid-back, but with a sense of respect and loyalty - he refuses to leave his band-mates to go it alone. From the first episode, I rec it to: fans of romantic comedy, the dramas I mentioned above, our fans of awesome chemistry.
