28 days ago, June 22nd, I remembered it's one of those nth special Fri when I went out for a drink with a coworker, then dinner with friends. Hubs have some friends over and we drank a bit too much wine and beer, crazily anticipating some sports game (EuroCup final). Nth particularly meaningful. Typical lazing around Friday night.
And a bit of alcohol in my system these days means I will be wide awake in the wee hours. And prompted by tweeps, I clicked on the playlist of a K daily they are raving because I have nth particularly grabbing my attention drama-wise, or a drama drought. I'm constantly trying things out and still hopeful, though honestly I've kissed too many of them stinky frogs of Shows. One guess, it's I Live In Cheongdam Dong.
Since then, my life's been 'ruined'. It will never be the same. My inner voice is one constant sound of AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!! Nonstop for last 4 wks and forseeable future. It is annoying and aggravating but SO FUCKING UNBELIEVABLY AWESOME that I want it inside me, screechy, forever. If the swelling in my heart can somehow materialize to sth physical and tangible… my bOObs should be the size of 2 Titanics.
I can not put it to words how mind-boggling and nuts I am turned into by this glorious monster. Originally 200 eps, cut short to 170 and now it just aired its #160 ep. 10 more to go, 2 wks live, last stretch. And a month ago I was overwhelmed by the three-digit number of episodes. Now, 170 is too toooo toooo few, WAYYY too scant. I feel like my entire family is going to emigrate to Antarctica and never coming back, leaving me forever alone. I used to eye-twitch at that going forever and ever LoTR3 parting end scene, but now I GET IT! DON'T GET ON THE SHIP AND AND LEAVE ME DRAMA AND MY CHARACTERS WHOM I'VE SINCE ADOPTED AND ARE REAL and FAMILY TO MEEEEE!!!!
The mind-boggling part is, you really lost all sense of time and priorities watching this, I can safely swear on my head there is not ONE bad episode of the 160 eps I've seen so far. More crazily., when I take a rare break, collect my marbles, grasp for air and pretend to be a functioning contributing member of society and do a tiny little review/recap in my head on the awesome, I realize, it gets steadily better, absolutely noticeably at a rate of every 10 eps = a new lvl of awesome. I've made a list of 10+ episodes that are more than perfection ever imaginable, 30 mins evoking more than almost ALL kdramas in their entirety I've ever seen
I honestly rarely wholeheartedly, seriously pimped anything in my entire life. I don't operate that way myself so I hate to subject others to the treatment. BUT IF I really post and spazz about it here on lj, I'm darn sure I'll break it by the spamming. And the only thing that's stopping me is I can't take myself a moment away from the screen marathoning, I keep squeeing and doing somersaults or loling hysterically my poor poor hub literally got awaken once with the notion we're hit by an earthquake all too real (I've already snidely subjected him to the earplugs treatment after he's asleep and pulled them out when I'm too tired to go one more ep because as much as I tried to control it, I went into guffawing or sobbing fits sometimes simultaneously beyond my control and we r sharing a bed. I did 150+ eps in 20 days, during which I ate a dozen ramyuns (that's my annual quota +), three whole watermelons, halved and spooned style. I have a constant dull muscle pain fr all the loling I did last month. I haven't worn a speck of eye makeup during the whole marathon because I will randomly hysterically laugh to tears when a scene flashes in my head at work, that and I would sob uncontrollably, moved to tears from the poignantly touching scene the next.
And here I am. Four wks later, it felt like a lifetime that flew by way too fast. I've been watching the latest episodes raw, then as soon as Csubs pops up and in btn I've been rewatching ad nauseum every spare alone moment I have. I'm extremely emotional with the latest glorious episode #160 I watched over lunch, I have been emo and moping and wanna just curl up and hide under my desk and let it all out in continuous sobs. And I thought some alcohol in my system will be good, but THEN I'm genuinely in fear I will drunk-cry, over a drama, and scared away the very few dear friends still sticking up to my craycray.
So what's there for you? EVERYTHING. Romance, Bromance, Family, Angst, Comedy, Slice of Life, Life, all done to perfection and beyond. It went at the rate of every freaken 30 mins I put a hand on my chest to calm the freak down and screaming GEEZ! BEST EPISODE EVERRR!! TT___TT and by the time I hit and is done with the next. GEEZ! BEST EPISODE EVVERRRRRRRRR! TTT____TTT. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Even if you haven't watched a kdrama in you entire existence, never watched a DRAMA let alone a situation 'comedy' your entire life (this is more a dramady with extremely hysterical and poignant moments in its mixed bag of tricks). Or, in many case, sorta my own, having watched the usual mother lode of crap and sworn too many times to never touch it with a 1000000000 ft pole….and yet here I am like falling in LURVE for the very first time.
Mr. X is doing his own glorious subs.
