With gods in drag watching! How much do I love it? As much as I love the vacant expression in Hu Ge's eyes, that's how much.

But that was a long, long wait. And I think I may have to give up on this as my DVDs keep sticking at pivotal moments of angst and it's rather frustrating.

ETA: It seems as if disc 3 is fairly buggered, so I think I will have to give up on this as I can only watch about half the scenes.

ETA 2: Clearly the gods never want me to see the angstorama that is Winter Sonata. Or Endless Love. I have bought these two times and each time THERE ARE NO SUBTITLES. I am currently watching Shoot for the Stars. This is not a satisfactory substitute.

ETA 3: Holy god, is Shoot for the Stars bad. Plus the lead actress' voice goes through me like a knife. But it has Jo in Sung in it... I am caught in a terrible dilemma. CURSE YOU NON FUNCTIONING LITTLE FAIRY DVDS. *shakes fist impotently at the heavens*

ETA 4: When I say that Shoot for the Stars is bad, you'd better believe me. I am caught between loathing for the heroine and her soul destroying voice (seriously: it could probably depopulate planets) and also contempt for most of the other people. The illiterate want-to-be film star is rather nice but the rest of them...

I got a tiny taste and THEN THEY TOOK IT AWAY FROM ME. Bastards.

I am going to buy a DVD player cleaner just in case but I am pretty annoyed at it all. It was like (evil) magic: everytime Hu Ge was in agony it would stick.

Nooooooooooo! THAT IS SO EVIL.

I will tell you my favourite angsty scene: when he has amnesia, and is orphaned and enslaved, Xiao Qi comes back down to earth because he has gotten all suicidal and doing bad things for his master like STEAL WINE (!!). But he can't remember her! So she breaks into his master's house and reads the emo poetry he's carved on the wall with a twig (!!) and then he chases her outside and she lets him catch her and tells him to hit her because everything is her fault, and he's like "But I don't knowwww youuuuu!" And she takes the stick and hits herself with it and he clutches his chest because his HEART suddenly HURTS (!!!!) And then he runs away screaming back to his slavehole (a shed) and starts having screaming manpain and scratches the floor with his fingers leaving trails of blood on the ground. IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL IT BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.

PS. his slave master is the rich friend's miserly dad. That just adds to the angst, I think.

Aieee!!!! Now I am so sad. Almost as sad as Sweet Potato in his amnesia! What sort of bastard takes such a delightful moment from you? It's like manpain heaven.

*sobs quietly to herself*

Nuuuuuuuu ;_;

Maybe the discs need cleaning? IT MIGHT DECIDE TO WORK LATER. Don't give up hope! There may be manpain for you yet!! *crosses fingers*

I will buy a DVD machine cleaner and see if it works. And having to watch the horror show that is 'Shoot for the Stars' doesn't make it any easier, either.

What exactly is "Shoot for the Stars"?
