I gave up on sleep and decided to watch the last two episodes of Bad Love. I haven't finished yet but I will be sad when it's all over. I can't decide what delighted me more in the last few episodes, but I think that it might be Eyebrows' writhing in the midst of his (terminal) illness. By about episode 17 he would keel over anywhere. And then he lay wan and sickly on his hospital bed calling for the heroine. That was good stuff.

ETA: But, God, kids on kdramas are always irritating. The one on this is sickly sweet and extra annoying. Just like her crazy giant-haired mother. But hopefully without being prone to random assaults of people who catch her shoplifting.

ETA: I think my next dorama might be 'Hello Francesca,' which [livejournal.com profile] caerbannog described as "about a family of vampires who decide to leave Romania in search of safer places to live, but due to an unfortunate shipping area, they end up on the wrong boat to Seoul. Fortunately, despite being Romanian, they're also asian and speak Korean as well. Then they make some Korean guy a vampire as well so they can crash at his apartment and sponge off of him."

Doesn't that sound just great*? I can't wait to see how they portray Romania after the mad vision of Ireland in 'Ireland.'

And all you Legend (the Kdrama) fans should go to her journal and look at this picture: Mighty Wang!

*This, of course, may depend on your definition of great.

Ye gods, that sounds AWESOME. I, myself, am of rather fastidious sensibilities, but I always enjoy reading your posts on shows that I would never watch myself, not even if it ensured that the Republican party was devoured by an intelligent black hole.

I used to have fastidious sensibilities but they sort of disappeared along the way. I realized that if I clung onto them I would never see wonders like this. (Seriously! Once you see the sweet crack of Korean dramas you will never go back to ordinary viewing.)

Hello Francesca is freaking awesome <3 Ahn Sung Daek is my favorite character, she's crazy but hilarious.

I am incredibly upset that jdramas does not have this masterpiece! I shall have to look farther afield to see this wonder of modern tv.

Having been vastly intrigued by the description for Hello Francesca, I googled the drama for a more complete summary, and found this:

Synopsis
Romania, 2005. One of the last vampire families on earth decides to disguise themselves and live among humans until “the glory of their empire” revives. They are sent to different places all over the world that are considered safe by their leader.
However, a group of vampires takes the wrong ship and happens to come to Korea. On board, they run into a timid and unlucky man Doo-il. One of the vampires bites him by mistake and he becomes one of them. They promise Doo-il that they will return him into a human on the day when their leader comes to find them. He doesn’t have any other choice but to live with them. They are disguised as a family of five and start new lives in Seoul. Can they really go back to their country safely when their leader comes to find them?
While watching the vampires who disguise themselves as a human family, the viewers will witness both their human sides and the humans’ inhuman sides. Can Seoul be a safe place for them?

...your friend's description was not off at all. And even better are the character descriptions, found here: http://asianfanatics.net/forum/lofiversion/index.php/t211883.html

I haven't laughed this hard since the new millennium began.

I am even more enthralled now. Especially now I'd seen photographic evidence of its cracktastic nature. (And I can't wait to see how they portray Romania in the opening episode. Ireland was hilarious with its Fake!Ireland scenes.)
