Reading
Well, I now have even more books out of the library AND more new books on my kindle (In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan!), but in fact, I haven't read any original fiction this week, just Les Mis contemporary AUs of the Combeferre/Enjolras/Grantaire variety, including a very good White Collar AU: Still the Same by [archiveofourown.org profile] tears_of_nienna.

Next up, probably Kept by Y. Euny Hong, since it's the library book that's due back soonest.

Kdramas
Finished Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, about a small young woman with super-strength, who's hired as a bodyguard for the CEO of a video games company. It started out intriguingly wacky and cartoony but turned into a giant mess: endless pointless subplots and a tonally whiplashy crime plot about a serial kidnapper. Similarly, the romance began promisingly but became obnoxiously cutesy by the end. Like, to the point where the leading man's secretary, Mr. Gong, on several occasions, had to politely interrupt their cooing at each other because it was making him super-uncomfortable. At which point, the couple would go, "Oh, are you still here?" and immediately resume giggling and fawning over each other, the moral apparently being that love makes you an asshole.

Also finished Capital Scandal, which was excellent. I chased it down solely for the time period (1930s, during the Japanese occupation), since I hadn't seen anything else set then, and I wasn't at all sure what to expect, but it was adorable and fun (and appropriately distressing in places), and did a great job of balancing romance and revolution. The female leads were outstanding, and the guys eventually caught up, more or less. :-)

Started Suspicious Partner on Sunday and am now nearly halfway through. Ahem. It's about spoilers for the first few episodes. )

Next week: starting a re-watch of Goblin with J.

Other TV
Last Week Tonight. That's about it.

Films
The Midwife (French): The last of our film festival films. It was good, and I liked the no-nonsense main character, but I wasn't quite in the mood to appreciate it, due to Life Things, and it didn't make much of an impression on me.

Writing
I had a plan to write pining fic for the Disguise challenge on [community profile] fan_flashworks, but let's just say it hasn't been a fruitful week.
