For The Love of…You Handmaiden!!!

REACTION

It’s been month…MONTHS!!!

Why am I embarrassingly whipped with such a simple tease of an image like so!?! What the hell are they even teasing?! Where has this image been all these months?!!! Those clothes are from a press event that was in early June for crying out loud!?

Kim Min-hee…

Such a great image…

[Ahgassi] The French Trailer Gives Zero ‘F’s!

’F’s!

They know you and your next of kin have already watched the leaks and they are right in thinking that! Everybody I know, and I mean absolutely everybody has already watched The Handmaiden!

So many spoilers in this trailer(watch it after the jump) and yet are they really spoilers? Only us who know the story already would know that they are spoilers. But it’s not about just the spoilers…That rating too >.< Then again, this is truer to the content of the movie than the original Korean Trailers! Nobody was prepared for the Adult-ness of this movie!

In fact this put a great deal of people off, who took it in the negative light and started accusing the film of some dubious problems only because the graphical nature of the movie was more extreme than perhaps the trailers let on. I am sure even those who know the story of Fingersmith were kind of taken by surprise, I know I was! This trailer is truer to the actual film because it hints at the sweet madness to come!

beautiful

Every time I see something about this movie I am blown away by the beauty of it all! Those TV rips wish they could capture the true beauty of this movie! Blu-rays are our only saviour. And I hope to God we get 4K HDR Blu-rays as well! With so many countries having bought the rights for distribution, I am pretty sure that at least a couple will give us the true quality of this movie!

Oh Look Who Finally decided to Grace Us With Their Presence!

Seriously YesAsia? Seriously?!!

A month! A Whole freakin month!! Well, to hell with you! And was this even worth waiting for? Was it worth making two separate orders?!

NOOOOOPE!

Okay, I forgive you for giving me a poster I already got since you have no control over that. But to give me the same poster twice?! Pls!

Well, rejoice dear Readers. I know some of you missed the OST so if you want them, I am putting these for order up on Ebay, with the posters of course. I will have to sell them separately since the posters are the same. Or maybe I should do the posters differently as well in case some just want the Soundtracks?

Anyway, I was ready to be disappointed but not like this!! I thought you were done with this stupid shipping lateness YesAsia! It’s been like, years since I last bought from you because your shipping sucked and yet you have not made any progress?!

I am disappoint!

I touched upon this before but I have seen a trend of movies experimenting with age-gap yuri. By that I mean ‘ships’ with couples who are very far apart in age. In this particular case, it is the woman/child size of age gap.

Korea has done it already, multiple times, to great success (Dohee dear Readers, Dohee – or as most know it as ‘A Girl At my Door’). Japan has been doing it since forever, if you include anime (I’m looking at you Bee-Train, and I miss you. Please come back). Malaysia has done it (even though I have yet to get my hands on that movie) and hell, even Murica has got in on the action (Fragile – look it up. It even has a ‘Sleeping Beauty’ kiss and I so need to talk about this movie too).

So really, what does England go and wish for? A chance in on the action and it does get it in the form of apocalyptic thriller/horror – The Girl With All The Gifts. When I saw the trailer, the narration got to me and then that ‘She Loves You’ line drove my curiosity into attention territory. That was weeks ago and seeing the ‘Based off of a best Seller’ I wasted no time in going out and hunting for the book. I read the book. Then this week I just watched the movie.

Bad idea!

[Ahgassi] God is in Heaven, All is Right With the World!

Oh God, the happiness! The happinessssss! I am so very happy dear Readers! Oh my Lord! I love this movie so very much! I love everything about it! Nothing, and I mean nothing, has been a let down for me when it comes to The Handmaiden! Everything is just so perfect! So perfect I decided to but everything related to this movie! I don’t care that I don’t understand the language the good are in (I am looking at you Script Book), and I don’t care how much I need to dish out (bought four versions of the OST just to get the two above posters), this movie deserves everything after making me so damn happy!

And so today here comes the second swag of Ahgassi (the first being the Photobook). And my God, I feel like I just upgraded to  higher plane of happiness than the one I was in before. And I thought I wouldn’t be more happier when it came to this movie! I was so wrong.

I had my doubts! Actually, as I opened up the box, my happiness plummeted quite a bit because there was only one poster holder. I was like – A_ah, I knew it! They would only give me one poster per purchase, doesn’t matter if I bought both the Hideo and Sook-hee version of the CD. It never even occurred to me that there might be more than one poster inside!

There were two posters inside! And you already know which ones!!! Like, how even?!! Let me tell you now, I am never lucky in things like this that require chance! I bought four version (other two from YesAsia) because I wanted to increase my chances! Well dear Readers, it looks like I don’t even need the YesAsia CDs anymore! In one hit, I got all the posters I wanted! In one hit…I don’t believe it!

I can only think this is because of The Handmaiden! This movie has been so good to me that it has even now increased my luck! Like, how am I supposed to love Ahgassi even more?! I already love it like no other!

With the posters, of course came the two CDs – The Hideo ver (with Sook-hee on the Disc) and the Sook-hee version (with Hideko on the Disc). The version sold on itunes store is of course the Hideko ver (as seen by the Sook-hee image used).

The other good that came with is the Script Book for the movie. As expected it is in the original languages only. By that I mean Japanese and Korean of course. But I am pretty sure that we will be seeing an English ver later on, especially after the movie hits English theatres from September and more hearts are stolen by The Handmaiden! For now I can only guess scenes from the Japanese, like the scene I took the photo of. That is the Scene where Sook-hee barfs at The Count’s attempt at seducing Hideko during the fruit painting lessons in the living room.

As for the OSTs, you already know what I am going to say in regards to the music – perfection! I have had the CD (Sook-hee vers since I have Hideko ver on Digital) playing all the day non-stop since I got the goods! It is oh so good! So good that I did not even bother skipping those lewd tracks as well even with other people in the house, because IIDGAF!

Ah, those tracks I am talking about are the ones with the sounds of Hideko and Sook-hee during that last sex scene with the bells! Yep, that is a track on the OST! Just pure sexy sounds that maybe anyone who hasn’t seen the movie would not know what they are doing! I mean, they are hearing bells, what could they possibly be doing with bells? (heh)

The music is just so good! And continuing on the awesomeness that this movie already is, they gave musicians a present out there by including sheet music for some of the songs so they can play themselves! Like, how not to love that!

To the less educated, there are lyrics (in Korean of course) and some pics in the booklet! They have everyone covered!

As for differences, I am sure there is something different from the Hideko ver as opposed to the Sook-hee version (other than the visible of course) so I will just keep on searching for them.

Meanwhile, I am still listening to this soundtrack and have already found my favourites, while I decide what to do with the yesAsia purchase. I don’t need it but the orders (yes, two of them) are already on their way here. I wonder if I can return them and get a refund? I will maybe wait and see what posters I get. If I got the 3P one, I will keep them. Otherwise, they are returning!

As for my favourite tracks:

  1. My Tamako, My Sook-hee (Track 31)
  2. The Footsteps of My Dear Love / Imi Oneun Sori (Track 38)
  3. Wedding (Track 18)
  4. The Tree From Mount Fuji (Track 01)
  5. You’re My Baby Miss (Track 07)
  6. Four Small Silver Balls (Track 36) <- DON’T SAY A WORD!!!!

I love The Handmaiden. I love Ahgassi!

My Ahgassi, My Handmaiden!

Good night!

Yuri Movie Recommendations!

Okay, so one of my lovely Readers asked me on Twitter to recommend them some other yuri movies to watch after I posted My Top Ten. It turned out that we have the same taste (too many things we both love) and since they have watched My Top 10 movies already (That’s what they are telling me and I believe them, same taste and everything), I figured that I might as well recommend something not yet discussed.

With that and the fact that I might never get the chance to discuss them, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to post those few recommendations here on the blog. So jump over for the short list and remember, this site s ‘yuri goggles’ meaning that you will need them goggles for some of these movies! I know I have said it before but I love light ‘yuri’ (or subtext as it was known before) and I am aware to most that is a not so good thing so I am warning you.

You will need to crank up your visors to >9000 for some of these movies. If you are looking for 100%, there are some in here but not all of them. I want to particularly warn you about ‘The Twins Effect’ and ‘Naked Weapon’. Some of the ‘Tomie’ movies also aren’t ur yuri so go into these without expectations.

And yes, I am aware of the amount of Korean movies, especially horror  but what can I say? Korea knows their movies and Horror is my favourite genre so, um yeah!

9th – Miao Miao

Ah Miao Miao, the movie that intensified my fetish for hand-sex! Hands, hands, hands!! For the love of hands I love this movie, despite the FEELs induced by watching it.

If you are not new here you know what hands mean to me. if you are new here then let me tell you now that I would rather have hand-sex than actual sex or make-out scenes! That’s how crazy  I am for hands! With what Miao Miao did with hands, well, let me just say that the reason this movie isn’t No.1 is because I am a Martyr, deciding to sacrifice for the greater good, which is logic, my logic, because this is my list but my heart and my mind conflict when it comes to this movie so…

I don’t know, seeing couples holding hands seems way more romantic to me than kissing or sex. It comes off as more emotionally effective. But that’s just me.
