My plan for the wk: to watch TWdrama till I overdose. One can never have too much sweet fluff/Mike He.
I’ve decided to watch Love Contract b4 continuing on MarryMe! I’m working towards being a Mike He completist having fallen for his pitch perfect acting in SH, honestly that’s what impresses me most, more so than his gorgeousness in suits, and channeling Naohito/Buchou~…..Mike He is a competent actor, but every other thing I’ve watched enough of him in…scared me far far away scarred. And I need to know where his brilliant turn in SH is fr, I insist it must be fr somewhere.
I fell in instant madlove with Mike’s Ken. Ken reminds me of Uesugi (Touch) and Yamato (Rough), the quintessential quiet heroes of Mitsuru Adachi. Loner, miser with words but never entitled to assholery, focused /perfectionist with their passion, yet the most caring sensitive anchor for his loved ones. Those r the inner lovely qualities, more importantly, my brain is fixated on his too yum for words naked toned torso , often times wet. And his perfect arms r made to wear only sleeveless or nth.
I want to kidnap and marry him by force for COOKING FOR HIS MOM while she’s napping before he heads out to work! With a caring note. And reminds her to take her meds. And his hair. Gorgeous hair. And his supporting himself as a competent bartender balancing all his hats as a student and disciplined swim captain with a habit of snorkeling at nite to unwind. In my head, if this is not idoldrama territory, his kink is nightswimming and nobody does that in the dark with clothes. And to make him more perfect (for me) he draws and paint pipes, and looks MikeHeGorgeous doing everything without uttering a word. Be still my heart. I conclude I can watch him watching paint dry.
Ahhhh! so early on @ep 2 the OTP is at full throttle already with the way he turns and gives her mouth to mouth after fishing her out and she slaps him yet it strikes a chord of fluttering chatroom love therapy. I’m way more in love with interactions btn Ken and Mom at this point, just what I imagine a single mom with her lovely dependable son to be and it sates my inner motherly love I don’t really possess atm but will have plenty for a son like Ken.
I love their little ‘bickering’ on their first movie ‘date’. I don’t see a mean bone in Ken, everything he’s said he’s being matter of fact, just NOT a warm and cuddly thing. When he had enough and cease putting up with her, he part with telling her his name is Ken instead of ‘Hey’ WITHOUT even looking back at her face. So perfect and cool. Mike I ❤ u!
BUT, I saw a few of the same supporting cast as the MarryMe! bunch and I cringe. That Wood chatroom guy is a boring piece of not pretty enough wood here and in MM!, and his name in MarryMe! downgrades to literally plank. He’s such a snorefest to watch, unable to deliver an ounce of emotion. The friends r totally MEH, just the same as with MarryMe! except for XiaoBai, which is building a genuine friendly rapport with Ken. I also like Ariel and her sis, her parents…not so much both acting wise and as characters.
So exact same old prob with LC as MM! I’m actually more attached to the heroine in MM! than Ariel here, so far she’s out acted by Mike *SHOCK* and her character is our typical stock wounded soul under the porcupine coat that is hard to root for being annoying every time she spits her protective venom.
Can I continue with this inconsistent PD?! OR major ffing exc for OTP and Ken+Mom? Dilemma of the day
