*Blows dust off of long ignored livejournal*

Long time no see, lj-dom! Kind of took an unexpected hiatus there, so my apologies. Didn't mean to, but work just kind of exploded in my face and is only now becoming a bit more reasonable. I've checked in here and there but haven't been spending any extended periods of time on livejournal. What down-time I have has mainly been spent over on tumblr, where it's really easy to look at pretty pictures and funny gifs and not have to put any real thought into anything. I kept meaning to make an lj update, but I knew I wanted to talk about the dramas I've been watching and the idea of doing a round-up post just became more and more intimidated. BUT I'M GOING TO DO IT.


FIRST: J-DRAMAS


Why? Because I haven't been that enamoured of the crop recently. I don't know if I've just been picking the wrong ones (mainly I've been picking the wrong ones) or the quality has just been sub-par. Nothing's been that great, but I've powered through some.


Shiawase ni Narou yo )


Ouran High School Host Club )


SECOND: K-DRAMAS


City Hunter )


Protect the Boss )


Spy Myung-wol )


Scent of a Woman )


So, I guess there wasn't a whole lot that I actually watched. I think Protect the Boss and Myung-wol just made it FEEL like an eternity. Also, my sister is making me watch Boys Over Flowers again (she's never seen it and wanted to after we watched City Hunter) and it makes me want to die. I did watch a bunch of other stuff though, hence the next category


THIRD: NON-DRAMA-DRAMAS (or, everything else)


Downton Abbey )


Sherlock )


North & South )


Misfits )


Young Justice )


Doctor Who )


FOURTH: THE FUTURE


What is everyone watching right now? I'm currently watching Flower Boy Ramyun Shop. After initally wanting to give it a pass after the first episode I'm glad I stayed with it. I'm enjoying Eun-bi more as a character and Ba-wool is pretty adorable. I don't think humor is Jung Il-woo's strong point, but he's doing a decent job as Cha Chi-soo (though I keep wondering when he's going to come completely unhinged). The only real problem I have is Kang-hyuk who I initally found amusing with the whole "too lazy to open his backpack" thing. But he quickly veered from cute to obnoxious when he laid that guilt trip on Eun-bi. She's not your wife, dude. Step off.


The only thing I have waiting in the wings is What's Up which starts in December. I'm thinking about watching something older, maybe City Hall or Story of a Man. Any jdrama suggestions?

I watched through episode 8 of City Hunter. I was trying to play catch-up so I could watch this week's episodes with the rest of my flist, but I doubt I'm gonne make it. Especially because Spy Myung-wol premieres this week, and I'm pretty psyched for that.

City Hunter has been a very pleasant surprise, as I've mentioned before. For the moment it ranks right up there as one of the best dramas I've watched this year (behind SPEC, obviously - BTW HOW PSYCHED AM I THAT WE GET AN SP AND MOVIE? ANSWER: VERY.)

However, I made the mistake of starting season 5 of Dexter while also watching City Hunter. And man, what I had thought was pretty suspenseful in City Hunter kind of pales in comparison to Dexter. Luckily, for now, City Hunter seems to be leaning more towards the lighter side of things. I'm sure we'll start veering into more drama as the episode count gets higher, and by then I'll be done with Dexter.

Of course, this is the first season of Dexter I've watched... which means the rest of the seasons are now on my to-watch list after I finish this one.
