This should not startle anyone who knows my attention span. Also it has unaccountably failed to show me more goats. WHERE ARE MY GOATS? I feel like I did when Spring Waltz withheld Daniel Henney from me in favour of giving me first love's childhood scenes. STOP TRYING TO DISTRACT ME WITH PRETTY KOREAN SCENERY BECAUSE IT WON'T WORK.

Mainly I don't think I am that mad about the clumsy heroine routine. And if you grow bored with a Kdrama heroine then it's an uphill struggle. Anyway heroine turns out to be separated at infancy sister of hero's first love, thus causing angst as her rich birth family blame him for killing the sister. Also she worries he only loves her because she is a dead ringer for Dead Sister (sorry I can't really be sure about names as they switch between Korean and Chinese names depending on the subtitler's whim.) And, dear god, they have given the heroine some terrible hair styles which she struggles against as best she could. Hero has nice hair, though. I wonder what shampoo he uses?

There is some other angst on the part of hero and his dad but I ff through those scenes. Because I bore easily and I can only really deal with one family's angst at a time.

I keep being told I should watch Goong but I've seen pictures of the hero in polka dot shirts and scarves and shorts and I am afraid I would go blind. Also the picture of the cast licking lollipops terrifies me beyond belief. No, I don't know why.

ETA: I am not sure I have ever fallen so out of love with a kdrama heroine as fast as this. I blame the lack of goats.

Goong fashion horrors now behind cut. You will not believe that someone actually dressed someone in these. )

I went to a wine-tasting in the middle of the afternoon today and I must confess that I really like being tipsy in the middle of the day. It gives drinking that forbidden feeling and it is fun wandering around slightly drunk while everyone else is quite sober. Plus it was a wine and chocolate event and while I feel that toffee and ginger is not a great combination the truffles they served were amazing.

Then I came home and finished 'The Person I Love.' Um. Yeah, well there's several hours of my life I won't get back. But now I am watching 'What Planet are You From' which thankfully has really good subtitles. And it is cute, so very cute. So far the hero lost his true love in the first minutes of the show (yay for getting over that quickly) and has gone on a finding himself adventure in the countryside, only to find the double of his true love and be chased by wild boar. The hero and heroine are very quite adorable and heroine is now convinced that the hero is a spy.

ETA: The heroine has the most adorable goats as well.

ETA 2: Best flashback ever with the goat* all dressed up for Korea in the World Cup. Sadly the subtitles have fallen off the wagon a bit. This does not bode well for later episodes.

*I am appalled that the goat does not have star billing. It is a travesty.
