Grrrrrr… I’m damn frustrated and annoyed now. DARNIT!
I have 3 more episodes of BBJX to go, and so wanted to finish it off 4 days ago. The ending of Ep 37 (I follow the TV version) left me hanging like crazy and just when I thought I could watch the next epi, I realized I hadn’t downloaded anything after that! I was too frigging engrossed with watching that I totally forgot about everything else. So as usual, I did the normal. I clicked on DOWNLOAD, hoping to get all 3 eps downloaded within the same day/night with my weak heart readily prepared to break and to soak in a river of tears. Aaaaaaaaaaand, it showed speed @ 10KB per sec!!!! *)&$*(_)#*_$&_)#*_)#(_($)#*_)*# to my horror! T________T
Well it’s not really THATTTT slow (I’ve suffered worse) but I can never have the patience to wait through 4 hours to watch an episode knowing that I could do it in 1. So I waited another day, no improvement. And another day, and another. No darn friggin’ improvement from 10 kb/secs! Oh dear goodness, what happened? Did I just finish all my broadband quota by having gone on full gear downloading of BBJX in the past week? And now they’re LIMITING my usage?!!@!@!#@!#@!#
Yes, I’m again, heavily and deeply in love with another drama, The Princess’ Man. Another angst-heavy BBJX-type drama to wreck my already near- broken heart. I’m still watching the earlier episodes, so melo hasn’t kicked in that much yet. But you bet I’m already loving the characters in here. Seung Yu oh Seung Yu, my dear Park Si Hoo. I love how you’re breaking ground and barriers with your acting in here, I can already sense you will be my source of torment and pain later on. Have I mentioned before that I hated your sageuk look and acting in Iljimae back then? And Moon Chae Won‘s Sae Ryung? None other than pure GOLD. Every time she comes on screen, I just stare in awe, at how beautiful and naturally emotive she is. No wonder I was drawn to her (and MGY) in Painter of the Wind back then, girl is made to rawk sageuk.
Plot, it’s cliche, done before and seen before. But the devices and execution employed in showing the political and romance aspects of the drama are especially intricate and fine. I love how the colors and visuals give the drama an authentic sageuk vibe (unlike the crapstatic/idiotic but strangely addictive WBDS which I’m struggling not to drop with 4 more eps to go) and how real and soulful the characters feel. I’m like only 3 episodes in, and I already feel a connection with the OTP, the King, the Princess Kyung Hae and the rest of the characters. Heck, even my dad’s like obsessed with this show (he’s like 10 eps ahead of me! Korean drama HAS really taken over our lives), how can I not love it?
Lucky I have 17 more eppies in my HD, reserved for watching when things like internet-breakdowns happen. Now I can indulge in my TPM-feast while waiting for the line to improve for the better (it better! I need my BBJX fix).
Meanwhile, found a very beautiful MV of TPM on youtube. Music, visuals and the feel~~~ ahhhhh, love everything about it.
Aigooo, the heartbreak 😦
