What I'm Trying to Say: A Coffee Prince Ep 9 Picmix  
What I'm Trying to Say
A Coffee Prince Ep 9 Picmix

*Psst, "picmix" = picspam + fanmix.

Spoilers for the best scene of episode 9!
No seriously, it's really good and I'm going to spoil you for it.

Image heavy, dial-ups beware.
Featuring music from Azure Ray, Stars, Sarah Harmer and Joshua Radin.

You're a map of a place; maybe someday I'll go...Collapse )

As always, I love comments! Just don't spoil me as I'm moving through this show at a very contented snail's pace.
Also, please don't use the picspam for your own art. It's kind of ridiculous how much I fidget with the coloring.
Thanks for looking/reading/listening! :D

I may or may not have flailed in excitement when I saw this. Coffee Prince is by far my favorite drama of all time- and I've seen a lot of drama. And yes, the music for that show could not have been better, at all, at any point. And these characters are fantastic, and this is my favorite scene as well, and I also flipped out when they played Across the Ocean, and this is a beautiful picmix (hee!) and I'd like to sum up by saying marry me, please. We are clearly soul mates. Or, maybe Seoul mates. :D Hope it's okay if I friend you!

Aw, I'm so excited that you're so excited! Sure, you can definitely marry me! Or just, y'know, friend me! ;) I'd love to have more drama friends. <3

Coffee Prince is definitely in my top three dramas ever and that's before even reaching the halfway point of the show. Everything is just so well executed, the music, the writing, the acting. Seriously, every episode I watch I manage to fall more in love with the show.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who flipped out over "Across the Ocean". I mean, most shows in America don't even hit the music choices as well as that. I certainly wasn't expecting it in my Korean drama. What a perfect moment IN MY LIFE.

We are clearly soul mates. Or, maybe Seoul mates.
Yes clearly! The same taste in music and an overwhelming love for CP? It's been fated that we be friends! :D

Did I mention that I have all the music you put on the mix? Because it is also awesome- some of my favorite songs. <3

SOB SOB SOB. This scene is like an emotional rollercoaster! I don't think it's healthy to be feeling so many things at once or all in a row!

When he grabbed her hand, I realized that I was so invested in their relationship I could pass out. And then she was sleeping, and he just loves her so much and is so conflicted but she's so close to him and he cares about her an insane amount and wants to be with her ALL THE TIME but his brain is so confused but he's happy just to be near her and there is too MUCH my heart will explode. And she's just sleeping peacefully on his lap, covered by his cardigan.

I love the music and lyrics you included. I hadn't heard Across the Ocean pre-Coffee Prince, and I'm not one to recognize songs during scenes because (unless I've heard them before) my brain takes it all as one, song, picture, dialogue, etc, and just gets SHOW from it. But when I got the soundtrack, and made little notes in itunes as to which song went with which moment, and then listened to Across the Ocean, I nearly died. I think (I THINK) it's my favorite musical choice on the show. It's not my favorite song on the soundtrack, though it's up there for that too, but the use of it is so perfect. I tear up just listening to it and thinking about this scene. And I really love the other song used in the first part of the scene as well (Last Arpeggios, by Bluedawn) and just COFFEE PRINCE with its stupid music and love and wonderfulness. Before my headphones and/or ipod broke (I need to investigate the situation further) the music from this show was my go to happy place during work. And on the commute. Basically, I just love it to pieces.

And I love you to pieces as well, this picspam is gorgeous and I want to hug it. I will hug my dvds instead and plot ways to hook people with them.

This scene has to be in my top ten favorite scenes of all time. The cinematography, the acting and the MUSIC. There is no better song than "Across the Ocean" for it. While I know most of the other music artists here, I'm not sure I've heard most of the songs (yay!). I'm going to be quite excited to listen to this when I get home tonight, and I'll probably have to come back and make some more comments because wow. I'm really floored by the amount of effort you've put into this^^

(and you automatically win for making me think of CP again, awww...it's been too long since it was over)

Oh, awesome! I love when that happens. I think I'm getting a little predictable in my mix-making, since I just can't resist putting a song from Azure Ray and Stars on everything. ;)

Agreed, everything about this scene is great! I was just blown away by how moving it was when I saw it for first time. Coffee Prince, how can you be so lighthearted and adorable one moment and then turn around and break my heart the next? It's impressive.

I'm really floored by the amount of effort you've put into this^^
*blush* Thank you! It was a labor of love all the way. And thanks for downloading and leaving such good feedback. It really makes me entirely too happy. <3

YES. OMG this song, and this scene. My friend was trying to sell me the idea of the show, and she had tears rolling down her cheeks when she was describing this scene to me. And predictably, I was bawling throughout the whole thing too. GOD. He loves her so much, wants to be with her so badly, and the struggle is right there ON HIS FACE and he can't keep himself away from her, can't make him stop and it's KILLING HIM but he can't make himself leave either. I will never be able to understand how this wacky little show brought so much depth and emotion to the table. Totally blew me away.

All the amazing things are still to come for you, and I can't wait for you to see it! Have fun with the rest of the show! :D

Oh man! You always leave such detailed and wonderful feedback on my drama posts, I really appreciate it! :)

...and the struggle is right there ON HIS FACE
His FACE gets me every time! I think Gong Yoo deserves a lot of credit for making me sob just with the conflict written on his face. I didn't expect that Coffee Prince would have the power to just break me in one scene.

All the amazing things are still to come for you, and I can't wait for you to see it!
Thank you. It's hard to imagine the places this show is going to go are just as good as this moment... but I'm certainly excited for the ride!

P.S. - Your Lorelai quote is very apt! :D

Oh this was beautiful. I love this scene so, so much. The way he's head-over-heels in love with her and confused and fighting it so hard and yet he just can't help himself.

I think one of the things I love about this show is how significant they make all the little touches. The way he curls his hand around hers, and that hug previously where she puts her hand on his back. Just, guh.

Just gotta say I love the picspams you're doing of this!

Oh man, I wholeheartedly second that 'guh'. Another thing that really killed me for some reason was Han Kyul straightening her shoes on the sand. It's in all the little moments that you can really see how much Eun Chan means to him.

Just gotta say I love the picspams you're doing of this!
Thank you so much for the lovely comment! My love for this scene was so overwhelming that I needed to express it somehow.

I would be happy to! BUT we must get drunk and sing and dance down the street at our reception, okay? That's a potential deal-breaker! <3

Hey, downloaded this a while back and forgot to comment. Really enjoyed the mix and the picspam and your explanation of what's going on actually made me download the first couple of eps of Coffee Prince, it sounded so intriguing.

Thank you so much for coming back to comment! It actually means a lot to me that you liked the mix enough to go to the trouble!

Aw, that's pretty much my ideal reaction! I enjoy this show so much that I'm always trying to get people to give it a try without being too pushy! I hope you liked it. :D

Yay, thanks for downloading! I'm glad you thought the lyrics fit the scene! I definitely tried to fit a whole bunch of songs into ten minutes of the show. :D

This is the best scene of CP EVER and one of my favorites from all the time, so sweet and agsty! Poor little things, they suffered so much!

I want to rewach the hole drama again *sighs*
Top: CP: Half past awesome o' clocktopazera on September 29th, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
I agree! There's so much angst in this scene but it's so delicious. I feel like I'm constantly on the verge of rewatching CP whenever I have spare time. XD
