MV: Puppy Powers (Marry Me, Mary!)  

Song: Every Goliath Has Its David
Artist: The Boy Least Likely To
Fandom: 매리는 외박중, horribly translated as either 'Marry Me, Mary!' or 'Mary Stayed Out All Night'
Summary: Indie musician and big-time music producer face off for the love of a girl (Mary). Arranged marriage versus long-term dating relationship... which will be the ultimate winner?
For: [personal profile] alexandral--thanks for pimping me this show!
Notes: I am head over heals for this couple, and particularly the guy, Jang Geun-Suk, who plays the charming Mu-Gyul in this drama. The drama itself is pretty low-key but the chemistry between the couple is so stellar it's no wonder they rapidly became the biggest couple of the year in Korea.

You absolutely do not need to have watched the drama to watch this--it's straightforward romance (with some quirkiness).

I threw this together in the last week before I left to travel to see family and then go to Vidukon. I debated tidying it up more, after inflicting it on a few people at Vidukon. But really I think I just need to release it to the universe... the changes I would make wouldn't dramatically change the viewing experience. This vid was very 'of the moment' in the sense that I was (and am) in an intensely romantic state of mind. Therefore I am happy leaving it 'as is', even if I could adjust some technical things more effectively. It flowed straight from my heart to the timeline so that seems more important...

My thanks to those who watched on my iPod at Vidukon: [personal profile] laurashapiro (I will always remember her exclaiming 'oh, that's a *guy*!' halfway through), [personal profile] obsessive24, [personal profile] such_heights (thank you for believing in their loove!) and [profile] halcyon_shift et al. in room 513, and [profile] brokenmnemonic and [profile] m_a_r_i_k_s for watching it BIG but with horrible aspect ratio. ;)

Thank you!! :) I pretty much started vidding it in my head from ep 1. ;) And they gave me lots of preeeeeeeetty to play with.

Ahaha, no, it was made before I left... in that final week. I couldn't have made it with jetlag but I did make it VERY FAST, as I vid really well when under pressure. ;)

I suspect the YouTube thing is regional, I'm afraid.

Hmm, I should probably try and be more eloquent, yes? Except this vid just makes me... squeeful. Especially seeing the rival have to bed down on the sofa with what looks like a mongoose pillow.

(If there's deep, hidden meta in this vid, I missed it. I'm too entranced with the squee.)

Squee is the only response I want here. Hearing you and Maria laugh, live, to it, was a very special memory for me.

I loooove that the rival ends up having to sleep on Mu-Gyul's sofa. :D Heeeee. It's even better in the actual show because there's a little banter scene between them that ends with the rival saying 'ok, I'll shut up' after evil glares from Mu-Gyul. :D :D
Enderenderwiggin24 on April 17th, 2011 06:37 pm (UTC)
even if I would never watch those kind of shows (well its unlikely that I will watch any korean or japanese sort of dramas in the foreseeable future) your vids about them are sooo cute!

Awwww, thanks! :D They're my escapism at the moment and since my vids for English-language TV seem to often be quite 'heavy' I get to let out my squeeeee side in these. ;)

OMG YOU HAVE SEEN MARY?!!! :D :D :D \o/ More and more things in common, we have! ::no idea why she's Yoda-like::

I couldn't resist the slash sidebar, though I ship him so hard with Mary I admit I debated about it a leetle, ;p. But that couch-sleeping was too glorious to turn down, plus the Volkswagon van snuggles, you know?!

Eee, I'm watching 'You're Beautiful!' now. :D I love it so far! And Coffee Prince is totally an all-time favourite of mine too.

Awww, that is SO cute! Mae-ri and Mu-gyul were oh soooo adorable, especially when they were drunk! Or when they were bickering. Okay, they were always adorable. ♥ You really captured them. :DDD

Also? LOL I squeed so hard about the otp in my journal that I think I somehow influenced Alex till she caved in and watched M3. And she pimped it to you? alsjdaslkjd Awesome!

Mind if I friend you somewhere? Either here or on DW? Let me know. FYI, my DW is my main journal (I post rl + fandom) and I only crossposts fandom stuff on LJ.

Re: here via alexandral
Thank you so much, OMG!! I am thrilled that the vid works for 'Mary' fans!! Their adorableness was so out-of-this-world I totally had to work with it in some way or another... That's so great that your squee passed on to Alex and through her to me...! :D :D :D I remember her describing it and thinking 'that is EXACTLY what I want right now!' ;) And sure enough, the show was totally what I needed/wanted.

Yes, please, do friend me on DW! :) I am slowly trying to migrate there because LJ is so annoying. I'm a bit disorganised with it but ultimately I would prefer DW to be my main journal. :)

PS Any time you want to pimp anything similar, let me know! ;)

Re: here via alexandral
It totally worked and was so very them!

HOMG YOU TOO?!? *high-fives* I feel the same way and migrating is so hard cos everybody is still here and saldjkalsdjaljds So yes, yes, I'll friend you there! *pumps fist in the air* I hope the annoying/whiny RL posts won't bother you too much, but hey, you can skip them.

Ooooooooh you want kdrama recs? Are you sure? cos I'm an addict and watch too many. \o?

OMG YOU HAVE A WILLOW ICON, HOMG YOU ROCK! Also? I see you've watched Farscape and I'm saaad you didn't enjoy it as much as I did. John/Aeryn are my OTP.

Re: here via alexandral
Coffee Prriiiiince! \o/ *distracted by icon*

Er, yeah, me too... it definitely is hard. Vidders are particularly sluggish about moving--my other fandom friends are often more hardcore about the shift to DW, I find.

I do want recs!! I've seen and loved Coffee Prince and Boys Over Flowers, but I rather disliked Goong :/ Watching 'You're Beautiful!' (ten guesses why!!!) at the moment and enjoying it heaps. :)

I think I may just be protecting my heart from heartbreak in Farscape... I've still got to finish watching it, actually. I love Aeryn to pieces and I've warmed up a bit to the ship since I last posted. I think I just don't want Aeryn to get hurt, you know?! ;)

part 1
CP was my first kdrama and to this day one of my favorites! \o/ So wonderful!

Yeah, fandom people seem to be more inclined to stick with LJ. And others don't like how DW looks.

You're beautiful is nice. It's one of the dramas by the Hong sisters so any dramas by them is sure going to be decent-to-very-good. The only ones I didn't like much were Fantasy Couple and, sadly, Hong Gil-dong, which I had to drop though I'll probably try to watch again soon. They penned one of my favorite romcoms, My girlfriend is a gumiho, which aired a few months ago. I liked it for several reasons, but I looove that the hero starts as a total wimp. Heee.

Another drama you may like is Sungkyunkwan Scandal (that's the other romcom I thought was GOOD and 2010 didn't have many of those imho). It has a Coffee Prince-ish flavor in that a girl has to pretend to be a guy and she ends up in an all-boys school, shenanigans and angst ensue. It's sageuk so yay, pretty costumes! DBSK's Micky Yoochun was good and I was actually surprised by his acting, but two of my noona crushes starred in SKKS, Yoo Ah-in and Song Joong-ki and they were scenes stealers so heh, there's that. Do you like bromances? Cos if you do, watch SKKS, like, RIGHT NOW. Epic bromance is epic!

Now for my favorite dramas ever? Besides CP? My name is Kim Sam-soon and City Hall. Dude. DUUUUUDE. They're wonderful. You LOL, you cry, you AWWW and clutch your heart and slakjdlajsdasldslkdhfdsf. I don't know how old are you, but if you're in your late 20s or in your 30s, these are more for you, I guess, whereas if you're younger, maybe the ohter two I mentioned above are you thing. Regardless, these two are must-watch imho.

I can't find a teaser cos it's a drama from 2005. It's a story about Sam-soon, a baker. She's 30, not thin-stick and not exactly considered the prettiest girl in tow. When the drama starts, she doesn't have a job and uh, her bf is horrible. She meets a younger man (hyun bin!!!), who happens to be a chaebol (and what else? LOL) and they...don't get along at first. He owns a restaurant and needs a baker. Match made in heaven? Hell yeah. There's bickering, a love contract (I'm a sucker for those) and...well, LOTS of things happen. It's so cute. If you want to watch this, please let me know and I'll see if I can rip my subs because those out there aren't that good for ep 1-2. Actually, when I watched ep 1 I was tempted to stop watching MNIKSS because it was kinda weird and the subs were, well, so-so.

City Hall. Oh, City Hall. *clutches heart* It started out a bit too slapstick for my liking, but then, but then...oh so wonderful. It's about politics and IDEK how tptb managed to get topic attractive AND add a powerful love story too. I just...can't even. It's about SHin Mi-rae who works as...personal assistant of the major, sort of, she's like, the girl who makes coffee? Anyway, a guy from the city who also happens to be a rising star in politics, Jo Guk, somehow ends up at City Hall Mirae works at. Oh suspicious! There are conspiracies and Mi-rae finds herself tangled in that mess. She, who is a simple woman, even vain, is going to be faced with many life-changing decisions to make. And omg, Jo Guk is simply love. ♥♥♥♥♥ Btw, here you can find the teaser

Re: part 1
Ohh, thanks millions!! Sungkyunkwan Scandal looks fun--I've seen it recced before and I do loooooooove epic bromance so I feel I should try it some day, for sure!

I'm in my early 30s so I'm interested in these next two you rec: Kim Sam-soon and City Hall. Eee! Thanks for the warning on the subs though--that can make such a difference. I don't have a lot of free time right now but when I do and if I go for 'Sam soon' I'll definitely take you up on your offer there--thanks!!

You're welcome. I think I never posted the vidspam for SKKS I put together for alex? Gah, I should go dig it out and post it.

Yay, me too. *high-fives*

Other dramas I liked: The woman who still wants to marry (with Kim Bum. A story about 30 somethings and their troubles. A love story between a 20 something guy and a 30 yo journalist is the main love storyline. Very well done. Usually these kind of story portray how hard it is for the characters to get together. For TWWSWTM tptb tackle that and especially the differences between the characters and can the age gap separate them?), The return of Iljimae (this is not everybody's cup of tea. It's a sageuk and alskdjalksdjad omg Jung Il-woo ♥♥♥♥♥ It's very poetic and beautiful evne if it has many action sequences), Mawang (a thriller, which I won't spoil for you), Story of a man (aother thriller and man, I can't rewatch this. I'd start crying if I see Park Yong-ha again), When it's at night, Flowers for my life (again, not everybody's cup of tea. The hero AND the heroine are quirky characters and not exactly likable, not at first. Do NOT read the synopsys at dramawiki which is spoilery and misleading. It's heartbreaking AND heartwarming even if the whole drama focuses on death. I know, I know, it doesn't sound appealing, but the love story is...alsdjalsdjalsd lasdjalsdjalsd). Man, there are others. I'll tell you some other day. This is turning into a huge comment *facepalm*

Re: Farscape. I'm glad I marathoned it because oh the angst. The thing is, they ALL go through a hard time. not just Aeryn. Not just John. But everyone. And yet, they're family and that helps. Somehow. They go on. And laskdjkalsdjsfkhd Best tv scifi show ever.

Re: part 2
Interesting!! I am not huge on thrillers generally, but of course if they are well done I could be interested... Kind of intrigued by the heartwarming story about death though. :p LOL!

It's true... I'm kind of sad my Farscape marathon got interrupted by other big life stuff (I've just been travelling in Europe for a month)... I feel a bit disrupted in my viewing and hopefully I'll get a time soon to settle down and watch properly again. :)

Thank you most sincerely for the recs! I don't promise to be very fast at getting on to them, but I'll definitely be bearing these in mind when I get some time to watch. Recs are really useful as it's such a huge field out there and knowing where to start is hard!

Re: part 2
Oh they are well done! Mawang, the Devil, was also remade into a jdorama, that's how good it was. Me? I still like the kdrama version better, but then again, I'm kdrama addict wheras I only have brief flings with jdoramas. Heh

Oooh you're here? Mind if I ask you where?

You're welcome! You know what I usually do? I keep a list of all the dramas I want to watch. There are wayyy too many and it's difficult to keep track of them all since new (good) ones get released one after the other. If you need more recs, I can point you to a comm where people ask this kind of thing and/or rec stuff by topics, say, "rec me fantasy dramas"
