Please be aware I don't mean objectively good, but I am enjoying it immensely which is surely more important. It revolves around that tried and true specialty of kdramas, first love lost. And then regained in the angstiest of circumstances. Though the hero, though very comely, seems to creating pretty much the entire angst himself.

Anyway three young children (2 boys, 1 girl) have an idyllic (sort of) childhood together until one of them falls into a river and is believed drowned. Is he dead? Of course not! Where would the fun be in that? He is instead discovered and adopted by a passing Japanese couple (that bit hasn't been fully explained) and lost his memory a bit. I am not sure what bit because it seemed okay but I think it was the name of the town where he fell into the river. (Very selective and useful plotwise memory loss).

After the hero's (Dong-joo) first encounters with the heroine, Ji-soo, where there are misunderstandings and attraction despite her being a not very good paparazzi trying to photograph him with some actress ALL IS DISCOVERED. But oh noes! He cannot confess his love because his best friend from those childish days is also in love with Ji-Soo and is really nice even if his horrible dad hates him and publicly humiliates him for some reason. This is about where we are at. And naturally Ji-soo works at the company of the hero and he spends most of his time looking longingly at her and being caught on stairwells passionately grabbing her hand leading people to think that she IS A WOMAN OF ILL-REPUTE AND UP TO NO GOOD. After she tells him to back off he naturally is all drinking and broody and staring.

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!
