I am deeply disturbed by how much better I feel that 'Time of Dog and Wolf' got once they started beating the living daylights out of the hero at least once an episode. I refuse to interrogate what this says about me but I am sure it is nothing good. (And the hero getting beat up is not a spoiler because I feel this is the sort of show where they will whack the living daylights out of him on regular basis because they can.)

And to prove it's not just physical pain I admire, I must confess that 'Silence' also got even better* once the hero found out that not only did he have little time to live because of liver cancer but that the heroine did not remember that they were childhood loves. Oh, the angst! And the shots of the hero looking attractively agonized as he dwelt on his unrequited love!

I am saving 'Coffee Prince,' a touching story of cross dressing and, er, coffee to cheer myself up after I have finished 'Silence.'


*And by better I mean even more likely to rip my heart out.

I saw the new Bourne movie today. It was fun but it did seem to manage to pack in more corridor scenes than your average Doctor Who episode. And the director would use the whole shaky cam thing to try and persuade me that this was exciting and that people saying 'this is a code four. he's live' was also very thrilling. Though there was excellent manpain of both the physical and emotional sort.

And speaking of manpain (and I often do these days), I am half convinced that the director of 'Silence' is not only in love with Vic Zhou but also believes he is making a Victorian drama. There was one 10 minute scene of Zhou's character just lying pale and wan on white sheets that reminded me of several Little Nell death scenes especially when his best friend pressed his hand in sympathetic angst. It was all quite excellent, really. And is it just me or does the hero's secretary half resemble an evil Barbie Hsu? I have a strange affection for Evil Secretary and her sort of thing of Secondary Male Lead.

ETA: It has been revealed that Secondary Male Lead of Silence got himself run over to ensure that Heroine and Hero would not get together. I am not sure if this makes him almost the winner on the manpain stakes or just a complete and utter nutter. Maybe the two are not so far apart? But if you like aesthetically gorgeous male angsting this is certainly the dorama for you.
