emothy: (massu; oiran photoshoot)
I have two words to begin this post with.


Now, let's discuss that: )

I also have suggestions for the next photobook, because these things are important and should be thought about properly.
- Cop (Think the Etude outfit but with a shoulder holster, brandishing a gun, probably some blood *_*)
- At the Beach/Learning to Surf (if you already know how, Massu, I seriously don't care, PRETEND OTHERWISE. We want half-naked, wet and drippy dorkiness with lots of falling off the board and laughing about it. The ONE problem with this photobook is not enough smiling! Also, not enough long hair, UNF.).
- Samurai/Shinsengumi officer just go push Hamao out of PMK already omfg
- Motobike. Just get in denim and leather and get on a fricking motobike and let me die happy. The end <3

In other news (yes there is other news, reluctantly XD), tomorrow mum and I have a day off together for the first time since my birthday (which does not count because we spent the day with my grandparents too who did their best to bitch and moan about everything they felt like. We both love them, but SERIOUSLY. HARD. WORK. I love them, I love them /repeat). So tomorrow we are going to be living in the cinema! Mum wants to see the new POTC film, I want to see the new X-Men, so it's a trade ;) And we'll have a nice meal out too probably :)

We don't have Sky TV anymore, we have this BT Vision thing wherein they buy/rent/whatever seasons of TV shows and documentaries and stuff and you can watch them anytime. So I may have been mainlining seasons 2-4 of How I Met Your Mother (no they did not have season one! But I saw an episode while in Australia and it was you know, FUNNY, so I gave it a try nonetheless). I think Barney Stinson is my not-so-twin. We both go around talking about how AWESOME we are all the time <3333

This post would not be relevant without an oniikuma:

emothy: (massu; surprised at your awesome)
I spent HOURS today doing this (and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it), but because it took time I am just forcing everyone on my flist to look. Well, not at all actually. You just don't click the link. But if you want to it's there ;)


49 Days: The Kdrama where the Reaper Angel of Death SCHEDULER gets a bigger wardrobe than all the female other characters combined! AND HE'S NOT EVEN ALIVE.

My excuse for this picspam? Jung Il-Woo is gorgeous and I love his face. He pulls the BEST faces in this drama. And is a pretty, pretty Princess Reaper.

Outfit One: The Biker Outfit (Hot leather jacket and jeans, with some questionable accessories, like the cute green and purple socks *snigger*. And the beaded bracelets - we wore those back in junior school. I would never have pegged them for a Reaper-acessory XD Even the ridiculously oversized headphones [earphones are so much more practical when you're a Reaper on the go] add a little something. I want to say idiocy, but I actually like them ;) Overall I approve - tres hot!).

Story of a Man
( aka A Man's Story or The Slingshot )

"Intense, thrilling, smartly woven together with great balance of light and dark. Hits on all three points of acting, directing, writing. Not only well-written, it’s actually FUN. (10 / 10)" Rating from DramaBeans.

Genre: Action, romance
Episodes: 20
Broadcast period: 2009-Apr-06 to 2009-Jun-09
Theme: Give the World to You by Na Yoon-Kwon


You'll like this drama if you love:
- The classic battle of Good vs. Evil (especially when the good guys are a mix of con-men and former convicts, and don't even know who the real bad guys are).
- Dream Team scenarios (EVERY member of the Dream Team is loveable, even if purely for the comedic value they bring. Fail to fall in love with Kyung-Tae and I may just come to the conclusion that you have a heart of ice XD)
- HOT MEN. Sorry. But it's always a bonus, right? They're everywhere!
- Sidekick bodyguard assassins! There's only one, but it's better than none!
- Slash potential. There are women in this series, and they do have important roles, but the focus is on the male bonding.
- Strong women. Unfortunately I'm not talking women with guns, or deadly martial arts skills. I'm talking your more mundane (haha) independent women with the strength of their conviction, women who make hard decisions (because some of these men totally aren't able to), women who suffer and yet carry on. Women put into exceedingly difficult positions by various men in their lives who attempt to find ways out for themselves.
- Smart scheming. From both sides of the fence.
- A plot that keeps you guessing. Things don't stay the same, and nothing is straightforward.
- Drama with a sprinkling of comedy. Just because there's a serious battle afoot, doesn't mean you can't have a sense of humour!
- Ships of all shapes and sizes. Seriously, there is potential to ship almost anyone and everyone based on various kinds of interaction - het, slash and femmeslash.
...Also, if you loved Legend aka Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi (like me!) there are a couple of characters you're going to recognise XD This drama is written by the same screenwriter of Legend.

Main Characters: )

Descriptions of this drama on drama-archive and video websites don't do it justice. When I first read the description, I couldn't see anything hinting at where the plot was going and it sounded dull. It isn't a simple revenge themed drama. There are so many twists and turns, so many threads of plot intertwined. But at the heart of it is the Dream Team. Four different men who band together against the big, bad world. Watch it for the thrill, for the twists and turns, but definitely watch it for the characters. The characters are what make you fall in love with this show, even as the plot makes you grab for more, and the style and pacing keeps you in awe.

Like a few Korean dramas I've watched, the first episode didn't drag me in completely. There is a bit of time-shifting, which isn't confusing at the end, but while you're in the midst of it it can be a little trying. They don't stick with this at all. The show might jump between settings and characters, but that's like any show. The timeline is the same, but different things are happening all around.

Another thing I enjoyed was reading the episode reviews/write-ups on DramaBeans alongside watching it. Sometimes subtitles don't quite translate meaning effectively, and I've read explanations on DramaBeans that heightened my enjoyment and understanding of the show as I watched. You'll find every episode recap here, under Story of a Man.

Now to convince you further with a picspam! (Click on thumbnails for bigger pictures that open in a new window).

I am so glad I followed my instincts and decided to watch some Arashi after quite a while of not watching any of their shows!

I have only a few things to say in regards to this (VS Arashi with GACKT for those who can't access it).

1. OMG I LAUGHED SO MUCH. I giggled like an insane schoolgirl.
2. HE IS SO PRETTY! No, right, I knew Gackt was pretty; I've seen pictures. I suppose though actually seeing him moving around, and talking (oh that soft, deep voice), and the smirk!
3. I ship like Gackt/everyone. Seriously. Especially Gackt/Jun, and Gackt/Sho, and Gackt/Daisuke of course!.
