I apologize for being so MIA lately and neglecting this tumblr. The week has been insane and I’ve barely had time to breathe.
Have some scrumptious Lee Jin Wook to compensate. So excited for Three Musketeers. He’s probably playing the Athos equivalent in what is bound to be a very loose retelling/reimagining (since one of the female leads is a former lover now enemy of his).
Also, there is a love triangle between another female lead, him and Jung Yong Hwa, but how any woman on earth could pick someone over LJW, I have no idea (I’ve adored him since Someday years ago, so I am biased).
Some of my favorite scenes in ep 8.
You know what makes Gun’s actions so amazing? The fact that he is not fully over Se Ra, that he is not fully in love with Mi Young - he is in the process of falling for her but not completely there (kissing the tear on her cheek is swoony but also telling - he isn’t going for the mouth). But he still does all that amazing stuff because he is an honorable person who can appreciate Mi Young’s qualities and has an innate sense of justice and responsibility. No wonder she is falling for him!
Also, Jang Nara is freaking gorgeous. Unreal.
I have just watched episode 8 of Fated to Love You and all I can say is: Gun Gun Gun Gun Gun Gun Gun Gun Gun OMFG Gun!!!!!
Was anyone else screaming at them to kiss? Just me?
I have not been this obsessed with and this invested in a romcom since the long-ago days of My Girl.
There are puppies and rainbows and unicorns. And Mi Young and Gun are cuter than all of them combined.
Seriously, she is such a darling and he is the sweetest, nicest male kdrama lead I’ve seen in years.
Total and utter love.
I do not have time for a proper post (will make one later for sure), but I am obsessed with Fated to Love You. It is the most darling, funny, shippy, perfect thing.
Instead of going to sleep, I am rewatching one of my all-time favorite movies, Moulin Rouge. I am normally a purist, but somehow this modern remix of La Traviata and La Boheme really works for me.
And the above sequence is in the running for my favorite romantic movie scene. No matter how many times I’ve seen this movie, the moment Christian turns around and stars singing back to Satine, my heart almost comes out of my chest…
My inner romance novel junkie highly highly approves of Michael x Becca.
Though I do LOL at the whole ‘if you are with me, your life must suck because you have to keep the fact that you are banging an angel secret otherwise you will be treated as the Whore of Babylon’ conceit this show has going. I mean, she is hooking up with the most powerful being in the city who protects them from a bunch of angels that would wipe them all out. In RL, there would be hordes of ladies (and gentlemen) lining up for a chance to bang him.
