JB and GF face off: Battle of Delusional Hopes

girlfriday: I think this year I need to make some New Years Resolutions.
javabeans: But I don’t like to set myself up for failure.
girlfriday: Don’t be a wuss.
javabeans: I call it pragmatism. Say I get my hopes up about a drama. We might call her Mary. And then… without fail…
girlfriday: Your Jang-Geun-seok-shaped heart gets crushed into a million pieces?
javabeans: Joining the Lee-Min-ho-shaped mound of heart-pieces from Personal Taste.
girlfriday: That’s the price we pay, my friend.
javabeans: I mean, you give me a drama with Eric and Kim Kang-woo, right? And they’re these hot buff frenemies? But then you put ‘em on a boat and make it about the Coast Guard, and I just don’t know how I feel about that.
girlfriday: How you feel about it is, yay for hot buff frenemies…in the water.
javabeans: But remember Air City?
girlfriday: Damnit. Must you kill all joy?
javabeans: The Grinch left me a job to do, missy.


Poseidon

girlfriday: Well my first resolution is to give idol actors another try.
javabeans: Are you making up resolutions just to justify your excitement for Dream High?
girlfriday: NO. That’s crazy. I would never do that.
javabeans: Purely incidental, then?
girlfriday: Of course… … Okay, maybe a LITTLE.
javabeans: Dude, you don’t need to make up random resolutions. That show’s gonna be awesome. In one way or another.
girlfriday: RIGHT? I’m ridiculously excited about it.
javabeans: I’m ridiculously excited about Kim Soo-hyun. (What? He’s legal. *goes online to check*)
girlfriday: So…is he?
javabeans: 22, awwww yeah!

girlfriday: So wrong.
javabeans: No wronger than Lee Min-ho. (City Hunter!)
girlfriday: I choose to ignore Lee Min-ho’s real age.
javabeans: I choose to ignore Lee Min-ho’s real persona. Fantasy Lee Min-ho in my head is enough for me. DON’T RUIN MY DREAMS, Reality!
girlfriday: Reality has no place here.
javabeans: Nor does it have a place in the absurd world of My Princess, which I’m pretty sure I’m gonna eat up with a spoon.
girlfriday: It’s going to evaporate before you can take a bite.
javabeans: Cotton-candy dramas have their place.
girlfriday: So do hand towels.
javabeans: SNERK. Sohn… Soo-gun.
girlfriday: Pffft!
javabeans: He’s a wet towel.
girlfriday: Hence the AWESOME moniker.
javabeans: A damp bandana.
girlfriday: Your shining moment of 2010.
javabeans: A droopy afghan.
girlfriday: Okay, now you’re killing it.
javabeans: A flaccid neckerchief.
girlfriday: The dead horse ain’t gettin’ any deader.
javabeans: Which is why it won’t hurt if I KICK IT a little more.
girlfriday: Santa is totally going to revoke your Christmas presents.


My Princess

javabeans: Oh, he’s totally hot though.
girlfriday: Who, Santa??
javabeans: Mr. Hand Towel!
girlfriday: Oh, phew. I thought you were revealing some weird fetish.
javabeans: No, all my weird fetishes are strictly private.
girlfriday: Let’s keep it that way. So, what are the odds that Dream High won’t fail me?
javabeans: About a hundred to one. (or is it the opposite?)
girlfriday: Back to math. You know how I feel about numbers.
javabeans: Let’s just say… don’t be holding any breaths. Or counting chickens or carrying easily spilt milk buckets.
girlfriday: But the chickens are so cute! They can dance! You KNOW how I feel about musicals and dance movies.
javabeans: I….don’t actually? Is it time for YOU to reveal some secret shames?
girlfriday: I…have no idea what you’re talking about.
javabeans: Just answer me this: Can you name all the actors in High School Musical? Like that main guy with the swoopy hair?
girlfriday: Zac Efron? Um….no!
javabeans: I don’t know if we can be friends now.
girlfriday: Too late. I already know all your secrets.
javabeans: Oh, you’re going all Scientology on me now?
girlfriday: Yep, aliens and all.
javabeans: Well since we’re stuck in this together, I promise to be your shoulder to cry on if Dream High fails you.
girlfriday: Then I’ll be there for you when My Princess inevitably hits the crapper.
javabeans: It might be good?
girlfriday: Ha. Care to make a wager?
javabeans: Only if you’ll put your Dream High hopes on the line too. *challenging eyebrow raise*

girlfriday: Okay, Dream High vs. My Princess: Battle of Delusional Hopes
javabeans: Can a battle have two losers?
girlfriday: HA. Then maybe we say, first drama to suck royally loses.
javabeans: OMG i thought you said “suck royalty.” Which would be a verrrry different drama.
girlfriday: Rawr?
javabeans: We can hope.
girlfriday: What does the winner get?
javabeans: A satisfying sense of superiority?
girlfriday: Doesn’t pay the bills. How about drinks?
javabeans: Great! I’ll be drinking either way.
girlfriday: Yeah, but I’ll have to foot the massive bill if Dream High can’t get it together.
javabeans: Five idol stars, a pop-songwriter for a producer, and a Hallyu star calling the shots? What could possibly go wrong?
girlfriday: Two words: hand towel.
javabeans: 🙁


My Princess

i wonder why What's Up can't air sooner. The trailer for that drama looks waaaaaaaaaaaay more interesting than Dream High (which just churned out a 5 mins preview). Reading the characters' profiles of Dream High is exactly like reading a "character chart" of one of those fics on soompi written by a 12 year old kid: hes rich handsome has a past etc., shes pretty popular and a bitch etc., another guy is not rich handsome has a past etc., another is pretty but not popular and may be a bitch etc. Sigh. Look at What's Up: the characters already look so interesting with all their quirkiness (esp. that girl who talks really fast). Also, Dream High tried to portray itself as "epic", passionate, but I don't "feel" it at all.
So...my bet is on My Princess lol Kim Tae Hee's character (from the trailer) already looks so funny and charming :D and thats saying a lot as I detest her as an actress lol

You should calm down, vulgarity is extremely inappropriate considering how light hearted this post is. You must be a fangirl/boy of someone in these dramas. Considering the amount of idols with little to no acting experience in Dream High and leads who are more known for being pretty than being good actors in My Princess it make sense that people will joke about the dramas and expect them to be bad, commenters are speaking from experience of watching some of these people's work. If they are decent to good, great they proved us wrong, but if they are bad most people wouldn't be surprised.

I noticed someone else reading the blog used the name lovedramas. Interesting.

Anyhow- what a great conversation. I have this strange feeling that I will want to see My Princess. But I do know that's it's going to fail me. I just can't see how it will be really good. However, I will still be following it. :) Starting to get excited. Just plz plz don't end up like Mary!!!

Haven't really been paying attention to Dream High but it looks like it could have more potential?? We shall see :)

2011 kdramas - fighting!

Okay so I think Dream High isnt going to be that good I'll still watch but I don't have any high expectations for the show. As for My Princess I'm sticking with it for SSH (^_-)♥ just because he's so darn hot but it also maybe a flop I'll still stick to it over Dream High.

Okay...loving 2PM so has to do with me even giving this a chance (...listening to Wooyoung's English in the preview though...the excuse better be that his role is a whole lot smaller than Taec's, or I don't get at all how they cast it, besides the "At least Taec has acted before" thing)

Hopes are up (...then again, my hopes can't get any LOWER for dramas right now). Please at least hit the "Wow, I didn't think it could get to at least this level!" mark? So hopefully, I won’t be disappointed…much…?

Ah. Well. Like I said before, at least there are the visuals…

My stomach is hurting from laughing so much. Really, really enjoyed the face off.

I'll be hopefully watching both "My Princess" and "Dream High".

Thanks for everything, you guys. Happy New Year.

GF and JB u gals r hilarious. So fun to read ur blog. I sincerely adore you gals. Please accept my friendship regards to you all.

Can you guys tell me which drama will be the best in one package? I'm really looking forward for the best in K-drama. The casts, the story-line, the character, and the scene. I'm desperately missing all of those on Korean drama recently. *sob*

I'm pretty excited to see Dream High, just b/c I'm a sucker for musicals and b/c I wish I went to a performing arts high school, lol.
Anywhoo, still confused, why do you call him Mr. Hand Towel? (I'm still kinda new to K Dramas, so please don't smite me! ;))

Is Song Seung Heon really THAT bad at acting? I saw one of his movies, and a really old drama with Song Hye Gyo, and he was kinda pretty bad in the drama, but good (or at least I think) in the movie.
On the other hand, I COMPLETELY agree with your other post that talked about Philip Lee's acting. As I was watching Secret Garden (and then reading your recap afterward), I was wondering why you guys never mentioned his acting... but then I was happy to read that post.

Hate to see either drama go down...they both have their target audiences tied in...so love KSH, I think he has a bright future as an actor..he was so convincing in WISFC...now, SSH and KTH in a rom/com, despite recent episodes of angst, the comedic parts between the leads have me laughing off my seat...having laughed so much while watching a drama...and if comedy isn't acting, I dunno what is...

JB, I have to say GF and Dream High are taking the cake so far.
My Princess is cute but Dream High has Sam Dong and the Chupmunk and cute-as-pie Pil Sook, and Hye Mi with her guarded marshmallow heart, and the adorable teachers, and bromance out the roof.
Am I right?
