I am horrifically enthralled by this kdrama. I would be embarrassed by this fact but I think I lack the TV shame gene.

There are quite fantastic amounts of stalkerish behaviour plus lots of 'prove your love by standing in the first snow' scenes. I feel horribly sad that no one has ever proven their love for me by doing this. If only I were a Korean drama heroine I am sure I would not have to feel this way. Of course, I'd also have to put up with losing my first love and enduring massive amounts of angst but it would surely be worth it on some insane level.

The poor heroine of Stained Glass is having to deal with many things: new found first love, dead-beat brother, rubbish life, and oppressive love of secondary male lead. I am sympathetic to secondary male lead but seriously those are some creepy obsessive vibes you are giving off. Admittedly you don't really know normal relationships because of your bastard dad and his desire to get you off the scene before Son 1 comes back, horrible elder step-sister, and pretty dreadful mum.

Also: side effect of my recent pity party for myself has been a desire to post horribly contrary things about my popular culture tastes. So far I am a bit prideful that I haven't done this except for this bit right now where I say I just don't get the Clive Owen is sexy thing at all

ETA: I am bit sad that now I have given up my paid account status I see so many ads. I think I will have to give LJ money so I don't anymore despite their odder commercial behaviour.

ETA 2: Secondary male lead redefines obsessive love even further. Ji-soo I approve mightily of your plan to move out of his house (where she is living due to complicated back story to do with useless brother and secondary male lead's desire not to see her live in teensy hotel room) as soon as you can. Run, run as fast as your legs can carry you!

Glad you have something to cheer yourself with.

The thing with Clive as sexy is it is plausible. Even if he is not your thing you can accept others finding him attractive where as if some one called Pete Drugherty sexy you would refer them for clinical help.

You see, the really awful thing is that while I know that people find Clive Owen attractive I still don't really understand it. He sortofrepelsme.

*hangs head in shame*

Is it the beaten up in a pub and slept in the alley look that turns you away?

I find he has a lot of charisma but still images do not capture that. His features are hit or miss on the photogenic part. Then again there are guys in my taste range that mystify others. I can't stand the boys that are so pretty that they are girlish or alien. If I was still 10 years old I could understand the sqeeing but seriously as a woman I want my men to look like men yet many ladies are fawning over these guys that look like dolls.

Something like that... :)

I like the pretty men *and* the rougher versions, (don't want to rule anyone out) but Clive Owen might be a bridge too far for me.

You are much forgiven on Clive. It is understandable.

Here is a one for you. John Barrowman's cleft chin drives me nuts. Lovely eyes fine cheekbones good jaw but that massive groove turns me off. And David Tennant looks too much like he has a caffeine iv installed. Too bug eyed and scrawny.

With John Barrowman I feel he's got a thirties matinee idol sort of face; I don't find him madly sexy but I liked that they cast someone for Captain Jack who looked right for the period we first saw him.

I do not find Tennant sexy at all, but at least I half get the appeal.

This sounds amazing. I'm glad you're watching it and I'm not.

You know...I find Clive Owen very attractive, but not necessarily sexy. At all, really. But handsome. Except for Gosford Park. He's hot there. And then only because his character was so wonderfully messed up.

Oh, you know you want to see it. All that mad stalking and obsessive love.

With Clive Owen I just find myself a bit repelled (well, a lot repelled depending on the film). But clearly I am in a very small minority, so I should just try and work on that issue...

I want to see sg quite badly, mainly because of my mad pash for lead male aka lee dong gun. Now that I see it is so cracktastic, the urge is even stronger!

I hope you will have as much fun with it as I am - the lead is very, very attractive plus will stand in snow and rain waiting for OTP, which I feel is always a good sign. I like the heroine too - she's cute and also has a spine and is not just waiting around to be rescued.

The Secondary Male Lead, however, is a complete and utter nutter. I am impressed by his endless persistence in the face of the heroine's stated plan never to marry him. He also does a good guilt trip.
