Head over here to read my post of the 12 Movies that Marked my 2012.
You would have to forgive me as I don’t really follow Ayase Haruka’s career, but she did kinda win me over when she played Saki on that freaking successful jdrama known as JIN , which got me to give a peak to Ayase’s pop culture oeuvre — Hotaru no Hikari, which okay. No, I couldn’t digest it. So forgive me if I’m late to the party, but- OMG! A WHOLE FREAKING YEAR! 50 episodes of a girl that likes guns? In a period setting. I love it.
Plus it’s got Joe Odagiri at some point in the show.
Yae no Sakura (八重の桜) might be actual must-watch TV (with worthy wait of subtitles) for, at least, ten episodes.
Forget about shipping, that was an excellent season finale. Utterly depressing, but highly remarkable last scene.
Deb: What are you doing?
Dex: What needs to be done.
Deb: Are you gonna kill her?
Dex: You need to leave, I need to finish this.
Deb: Fuck, Jesus. You can’t do this.
Dex: It’s the only solution, the only way to end this.
Deb: I can’t let you through with this.
LaGuerta: Shoot him, Deb. You have to end this. Shoot him. This is not who you are. You’re a good cop, you’re a good person. You’re not like him. Put him down!
Dex: It’s true, everything she said. You’re a good person. It’s okay.
Brown Eyed Girls has been very busy this week promoting their upcoming Xmas +19 shows in Seoul. Besides doing SNL Korea, they’ve been doing all sorts of interviews. In the latest one on Guerilla Date, they talked different things like what would Ga-In erase of her past, who’d be the one to get married first…. and they talk about their ideal type (??), which JeA says Josh Hartnett with the following message:
… which, of course, it’s hilarious.
I honestly think she did say “I will meet you” (with a really pronounced ‘t’ by the end of ‘meet’). I’m not sure where the “to” in the caption comes from… if it’s either a regular typo happening in Asian varieties, or if it is indeed part of the joke that she said “meet to.”
