I couldn't help but love you, even if I wanted to...  
I-I have another first-episode spam? I've fallen, and fallen hard, for Devil Beside You! It's CHEESY and full of CLICHES and DELICIOUS and I LOVE IT WHOLEHEARTEDLY. It's one of those dramas that's totally visceral to watch, there is just no resisting the squee and I haven't even tried in this post! :DD

Devil Beside You
Status: I've seen the first six episodes! Though this post only covers episode one. :)




Meet our heroine, Qi Yue!


She dreams of romantic confessions of love with CGI flower petals falling around her!



Also ~kissing~ as she is a lady of taste!



She's pretty adorable so I can't imagine she'd have much trouble scoring a date with her dream dude (who happens to smile at her all the time).



Enter her awesome friends, who give her a good of pragmatism and tell her to say something to him already.



Okay so: Yue has a crush on the captain of the basketball team, it's all very sweet and she's going to confess her crush to him by handing him a letter!



Her plan is so simple and yet it goes SO TERRIBLY AWRY.



SHE MISSED HER INTENDED TARGET.


Ohhhhh knowledge is power. XD




ENTER OUR LEADING MAN. THERE IS LIGHTING AND STORM CLOUDS BACKING HIM. OH SHOW, WE ARE GOING TO GET ALONG SO WELL.




Ahahaha, I love Yue and her mom! You really do get a sense that it's been just them against the world for a while now, she really treats her daughter like an equal. Their moments remind me of Gilmore Girls so much. ♥




So BFF! ♥

SO. Yue is going to go show that jerk! She is going to get her letter back and try that confession one more time and her life will be righted! She's going to do it!

HAHAHA, her "attack" smile!


For a second it looks like it might work...


DENIED. What a jerrrrk, he's having so much fun! ♥




In a another show, you might not think that right after he's an arrogant jerk to her, it would already be time for eyesex. THANKFULLY THIS IS NOT THAT SHOW. Of course Qi Yue is too cool to be a slave to some jerk and that's never presented as an appealing idea BUT HIS FACE IS ALWAYS APPEALING, IN HER HEART.





a;dsakfj;kflfjklsfl;kf HIS SMIRK DOES SO MANY THINGS TO ME. Sometimes Mike He/Ahmon reminds me a lot of Ed Westwick/S1!Chuck Bass. They both have such a strong pleased-with-themselves smirks and the same carefully enunciated malice with smiling eyes. Of course, we all know immediately that Ahmon is going to be a soft-hearted woobie that doesn't really have any real malice at all. :D


What has she gotten herself into??




OF COURSE, HE WON'T LET ANYONE ELSE MESS WITH HER. U-UM, THIS GAVE ME A LOT OF ~FEELINGS~?


alsjfkdlf;ladsfjlsf He has a hand on her neck and he is just so pleased with himself over it.



AGAIN, ANOTHER THING I FEEL SHOULD BE CREEPY BUT IS INSTEAD ONLY HOT.

And then we reach the part I call, Qing Zi is an awesome friend:



(hahaha)



My Sassy Girl! ♥ You could choose worse movies to get your life lessons from!


Everyone's face winds up about an inch from Ahmon's. (I do not blame them. )


YUE'S SAVIOR, CUT DOWN BY CHEMISTRY. I'M SORRY, YUE.


(I'M NOT ACTUALLY SORRY AT ALL. :DD)



Oh girls. You really need to cut back on your Twilight. :D



I FEEL THIS SHOT ESTABLISHES THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF SO MANY DRAMA OTPS: GUY IS A COCKY JERK! GIRL IS NOT IMPRESSED BY HIM! ~FATED RELATIONSHIP ENSUES~


He is talking about leaning into her personal space.



She plays into it every time!




He is pulling your pigtails, Yue, and it is working! (FAAAACES :DD)



LOLOLOL, AHMON, IT'S ONLY THE FIRST EPISODE! SHOULDN'T YOU HAVE TRIED TO CONVINCE ME YOU WEREN'T A WOOBIE LOSER FOR A LITTLE LONGER?


Our secondary girl and her rad blue hair!


Aw! I am excited for their development as we go! I love the Big, Sweet Guy and Unhappy, Tough Girl dynamic a lot.



So much of the time when watching Yue, I feel like I'm watching a live-action Sailor Moon. I'M NOT AT ALL PUT OFF BY THAT. (Maybe I need to watch the real real-life Sailor Moon!) SERIOUSLY, THAT IS PURE USAGI TO ME. Also fantasy sequences, another of my favorite drama conventions already!


She slaps him! Yes, you go Yue! She may be wrong about him but I'm so so happy to see her stand up for herself and others.






SLAD;JFKLJSADKJGJAFLG


(You are so pretty!)



AND SLAM TO BLACK. Ahahaha shoooooow, yes! I SEE WHERE YOU ARE GOING WITH THIS. A hit and run joke was defintely the way to introduce it, thumbs up!

I'm not sure if I'm going to keep posting caps as I've clearly proved terrible at restraining myself but either way, phrenk has been doing killer posts of the rest of the eps at folderdropping! Go go go! :D

Ha, yes, I would never claim it was brilliant entertainment but I'm entertained and that's all I expect! ♥

hahahah I KNEW you were sucked into this because of phrenk's posts of doom!! LOl I would've pimped this so much and so often except that I assumed everyone had already seen it.
"SHOW, YOU AND I ARE GOING TO GET ALONG SO WELL" lololol. You have no idea how much I loved this picspam. Oh, I do heart them and Rainie in all her cute fizzing fury barely masking intense attraction and Ahmon with all his "I'm a badass who barely manages to hide my heart of gold!" vibe!

LOL, there was no way I wasn't coming along for the ride with phrenk's level of excitement about this show! It was clearly the right choice. :D

I would've pimped this so much and so often except that I assumed everyone had already seen it.
Ha, it's okay, I do the same thing and you are right about the majority of people! When I was watching I definitely even thought "Waaaaait, I've seen that before. ...ambergold's icon?" So you ALMOST pimped it to me. XD

Aw, so glad you enjoyed! I feel so in the loop now that I can comment on Rainie and Mike He and DBY! In fact, I can't believe I missed this deliciousness for so long.

I've read the manga but never seen the drama. I was actually too lazy to start watching it 'cause it was too long T.T I have the dvds though
Maybe i'll watch it before dying *dramatic*


...

Alright, that was the useless comment you recieved, I bet! I'll stop :p
Top: ∞: 大切なひとtopazera on May 29th, 2010 09:38 pm (UTC)
Noooooo, your comment was not useless, it made me happy! :DD See, now I'm intrigued. Maybe I should read the manga when I run out of the show because it seems too short. It's all about ~perspective~. XD

Anyway if you like the cheese, and since you like the manga already I bet you do (♥), I would totally recommend trying the drama version at some point! I have no idea if it's faithful to the manga but man, the leads have great chemistry.

Mike He is just about the cutest thing ever :) And he only gets better in his future dramas! DBY was one of the first dramas I ever watched and I credit it largely as the influence that kept me coming back for more :)

It was nice to see all your pics of the first episode- it really takes me back! Maybe I should watch this series again...

Thanks!

I am so glad you were in a place where my squee could lead to you watching! I FEEL SO MANY FEELINGS WATCHING THIS SHOW AND I AM GLAD YOU DO, TOO. ♥

GOOD POST. OBVIOUSLY.
