“Only when we fly that high, do we realise how big this world really is, and there are still many, many things left for us to do. Only after looking back on the meaning of life, do we realise we were ignorant. Place your sights further, alright?”

Jiang Zhi Shu (They Kissed Again, ep01)

————————————

^^We do live in a big world & there is so much for us to learn :))

I decided to rip a line from the Taiwanese series that made me (& a million other girls) fan after Joe Cheng since the Korean adaption of It Started With A Kiss is well & truly on its way. And everybody’s favourite Ji Hoo sunbae aka Kim Hyun Joong has just been cast as the leading man (apparently after his beloved F4 leader Goo Joon Pyo aka Lee Min Ho declined the role *pfft*)

The immediate activity I’m witnessing in cyberspace is; Team I-love-Hyun-Joong-FTW VS “Team Not-so-sure-if-Hyun-Joong-can-act-well-enough-to-pull-off-this-role.

Where do I sit? Probably somewhere in btwn (fence-sitting 101, darn my dark Libran traits ><;) I don’t want to get into it too much… well not right now anyways, perhaps when the remake is done & dusted, then definitely maybe I will have something to say gaha^^;;

Right now I will say though, Joe Cheng was the closest thing to perfection as Jiang Zhi Shu. He synthesised all the layers of aloofness, the intelligence, the inner worries, the distance, the caring, the devotion & (at times) the humour of the character so seamlessly & naturally. He made kissing in the rain & other exotic faraway lands look like an art *wipes drool off chin* He was so dreamily marvelous that I dragged myself thru the 20eps of the severe mental & physical pain that was They Kissed Again (I seriously do not recall Ariel Lin being anywhere near that aggravatingly irritating in It Started With A Kiss. Golly. Why do sequels so often suck?)

I want to digress that these days I welcome remakes, practically w/ open arms. They’re fun to anticipate. I used to get upset & infuriated at them but I realised that no matter how turd-worthy the remake is, it will never, ever diminish the greatness of the predecessor(s.) If anything, a bad remake will only make the predecessor(s) appear even greater (& also give us a fureaking good chuckle xD) If the remake actually succeeds, then hey, who’s going to turn down some quality dorama watching? I personally see it as a win-win situation (=∀=)

Okay, random comment: how puuuruty was Aaron Yan in They Kissed Again as Ah Bu *tears of affection* xD

edit; 16 July, 9pm: Jung So Min has been confirmed as the female lead in the Korean remake. I guess I better start taking more notice of her in Bad Guy (if only Kim Jae Wook was not so distracting… (´ー`;) *loves on Tae Sung*)





Boys Over Flowers Wallpaper

25 11 2009

I’m too lazy to generate new content at the moment (translation: I’m too busy fangirling J-doramas xPP) so I’ve dug out some Boys Over Flowers wallpaper I made earlier this year (just to keep this blog semi-rolling I suppose.) Please do not hotlink or  re-post w/o permission but most importantly, please enjoy (*´▽`*)

By the way, just in case you can’t tell, I am a hardcore Ji Hoo sunbae fangirl <3 Out of  the Taiwanese, Japanese & Korean live-action re-enactments of this classic story, the latter one was the only version where I felt like the Rui character deserved the girl more. But sigh, screw the script, Jan Di gambles her life drinking up chlorine & ends up w/ douche bag Goo Joon Pyo.
