There have been shows I liked within the past two dramas years, but only a few stand out as ones whose DVDs I’d like to be buried with. I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that you can tell what these shows are going to be from the start. They’re different from the ones that you like because the actor/actress is gorgeous, or because the plot make perfect logical sense. There’s something more to these shows, despite how strange the plot may be or how unattractive the lead male is by all rational reasoning. It’s why I love Kill Me Heal Me over the much more tightly plotted Healer. It’s why I love Liar Game but am pretty meh about You Who Came from the Stars (despite how fun Jun Jihyun was) and why I adore Nodame Cantabile but can’t get through a lot of Jdoramas. So far these three have been my I-Love-Yous in terms of shows, but a new one just joined its ranks.It frankly makes no sense, because Bromance is the very sort of fluff I normally look at and say ‘well that’s cute but so cringeworthy’. Instead I’m screaming ” I LOVE IT I LOVE IT” at my screen and at my sister and at anyone who’s listening to the point to the point where I sound like I belong somewhere far away from rational society. I don’t know what sort of magic spell Baron/River Chen (which one is his name anyway?) and Megan Lai have worked on me, but I am so addicted it’s not even funny. I’m barely restraining myself from adding screencaps because I know there’s no stopping once I start. It’s bad enough with shows I like, but with shows I love? Whew! It’s crazy. But how did this happen?
I was exploring the new (for me) territory of fan-made mvs on youtube when I chanced upon this thumbnail on January 8th, for a video titled Bromance – Heartbeat Song
The original video has unfortunately been taken down due to a copyright notice (and I had to literally scour the internet for this thumbnail lol), but I really liked what I saw, especially how much the lead actress actually looked like a man.
I knew I had to watch it then but the torrents I found were of terrible quality so I gave up and forgot about it until March 2nd.. In hindsight it would have been better had I seen it at the start of the semester because now I’m knee-deep in coursework but pushing that aside for Bromance. I know I’m in deep when I start digging into the male/female lead’s past works and private lives and what not. I’ve been scrounging the internet for news on them, and hoping/wondering if the drama bts is for real or filmed to appease/increase fans. It’s my first real addiction and has completely transcended my like for any other show airing. I am so in love. I can’t even count how many times I’ve said that. But this post is meant to serve as more than an outlet for all my feels, it’s a plea for aid to all Bromance fans to please feed my addiction.
If anyone has anything they know about Baron Chen/Megan Lai, or any sites with English translations and discussions and videos that I sound visit, pretty please let this non-Chinese speaker know! And please tells me those bts videos they put up of the drama aren’t acted out? Or not? :3
And to those who have not seen Bromance. WATCH IT. Be sure to finish all your coursework/schoolwork/work in general in advance though! xD
