Period Beauties

 Hu Ge as Mei Changsu in 琅琊榜/Nirvana in Fire  ie HG back to being drop dead gorgeous in a idolperiod that is at least very pleasing to the eyes.  This drama actually seems very promising every step of the way from the crew attached and the cast.  Can not look away.

Jang Ok Jung 10

What an awesome PS by the always talented fans at DC gallery.

I’ll admit I have sweaty palms clicking the eps this week, nervous this will fall apart like so many dramas prior.   We know the drill, drama gets better and better, slowly latching on, then a JOJ8 drops kind of out of nowhere.  And what’s next?!  I was totally prepared for a few slower filler eps, JaeHee to make an entrance (right!? I’m so not sure) and that takes some drama-brick laying.  But nope, still this assured pace not skipping a beat with punches to my gut, or some gooey body part inside me that is infested and out of control.  There are scenes, quite a few of them where I go do my little claps and cheers and somersaults in my heart for a job well done.

Super wordy, probably my worst case of babbling mess.  Spoilers, gifs ahoy.  All credit to DC JOJ gallery and baidu bar.

Lots of spoilers!!!  All gifs from baidu JOJ bar, thanks to original posters!

Jang Ok Jung 8

[pictures, gifs from baidu JOJ bar and weibo]

So gorgeous it hurts, it really hurts emotionally when this is an engaging memorable scene and the pretty is only there to embellish, like so many other moments in JOJ, and KTH is carrying every one of them in poised strides.  This is nothing short of a miracle.

**Spoiler pics, gifs, OMGOMGOMGOMGs ahead**

I Live in Cheong Dam Dong 10: When Tragedy Becomes Comedy

So much forward momentum, and not missing a beat serving the lols and awwws.  This is the episode I’ve grown fonder of so many characters after knowing more about them, I have firmly formed my OTP ship.  There is a new shipping I know it’s very wrong but I can’t help but WANT!

I Live in Cheong Dam Dong 4: An Easily Written Poem

HyeJa is at the Morning Club, the other ajummas are waxing poetic on something about sadness is emerald in color, blind angel gazing and Moebius strip.

One, Two, Three: I Live in Cheong Dam Dong 3

I had never thought stooges are my type.  But I had not seen a masterpiece in the form of a daily sitcom with 3-digit # of episodes, then.  And Rule of Threes totally ROCKS.
