Haha we went off topic here a lot...but I think there is a thread about learning Japanese somewhere...maybe this can get moved somewhere else ;) It's rather easy to learn Hiragana and Katakana, the 2 syllable-alphabets. They're pretty simple signs...whereas the Kanji were developped from the old Chi...

All about Eve is being subbed here on viki maybe you can ask them where to download the raws, too.
I gave the first ep a try but the bad dubbing put me off.

Hey, "status quo"-ers: Does it feel great to throw around the "b-word" like confetti? Or pretending to yourselves that "jerk" is in any way as derogatory as the aforementioned term of abuse? If you think words like "feminist hordes" or "politically correct" are going to silence those who want to ta...

I can feel the stones getting thrown at me already, but one reason why I enjoy watching kdrama is that women and men are not being portrayed as equals. Mostly men are gentlemen, bread-earners, protecting and respecting the family and I like to watch it. I absolutely do. I like how women in kdrama ar...

As for the S-lines. I'm not sure what you mean. When he takes off his shirt and shows his body? So many dramas do that. Almost every Korean drama has a shower or clothes changing scene. I've come to expect at least one topless scene no matter what Korean drama. Well...the term S-line originally was...

Hmm, Ori I get what you say, this drama was very happy and light for most parts and I understand you want a happy end cause you see it as a fluff drama...but the thing is, we saw the hints about some tragedy from the beginning, didn't we? Like the magic, the strange character chart etc etc. Actually...

Nice too see some discussion here =)) Issy and me felt pretty lonely for a while :-) I agree with xflr40 and Chuks about the ending, as you can see in my post above. About Fukada, I think she is one of the most overrated and annoying actresses in Japan, like Maki, she's at best average. Sorry, but s...

I'm totally hooked on Life is Beautiful.
Already 20sth eps into the series and I've forgotten all about SG, Athena and whatever else I had on my watch-list. This series makes me laugh and cry with its charas like no other has in a long time. :wub:

I watched mostly in HD, subs from soompi and viki were in synch.
I think you should get this gem in HD, it's definitely worth it :wub:

Haha Orion, then you should get me a place in such a mental ward...there are a lot of series where I prefer a romantic death to a unbelievable and constructed happy ending :P But I'm not sure what I wish for SG. This series lost already a lot of steam imo. I didn't even bother to watch the last 2 ep...
