All In or The Sandglass are my choices. Chose Sandglass because it's more rare--sold out from publisher at YesAsia, so even if you wanted to buy it, probably wouldn't get the chance.

All In has been circulating quite often, and if people really wanted it, it can be voluntarily seeded.

Both should be awesome though, based on the descriptions in the info links.

Vote for SandGlass everyone. When it comes right down to it, it's the only candidate that is even remotely interesting of the bunch.
Friends and family from Seoul have repeatedly recommended this one to me.

Take engaging drama over shallow sap.

i have seen these so-called introspective dramas and they turn out to be quite a laugh. So if you're gonna buckle down and watch escapist entertainment, why not go balls out and watch something over-the-top?

i don't need to be reminded of reality or depressing things. my life contains all of that.

I was the VSS for ALL In recently. I want Propose to win, so I'll tell you what.....

I promise that if ALL IN doesn't win, I will reseed it the first 2 weeks of March. OK?

So everyone who wanted to vote for All In, vote for Propose instead and you can have both. LOL I will even throw in Winter Sonata for the second half of March. Come on, what do you say?

Vote to Loving You aka Princess Mermaid

Post by kargeo » Feb 20th, '05, 08:16

If choosing in order, it should be Winter Sonata, All in, Endless Love, and Propose that I've watch.

The other two that I've not seen Loving You and the Sandglass yet, so I vote Loving You. However, it turn out that only 5votes out of 60. I guess I loose again...

Does anyone have the soft sub of Loving You or Propose? Please pm me. Thanks.

Support for Sandglass...Don't listen to naysayers

Post by vsm » Feb 20th, '05, 09:18

Come on now, the people who commented negatively on Sandglass...have you even watched the whole thing? There are many series that often start "slow" or "boring," but as you continue watching, you're like...dang. From the reviews it seems to be this kind of drama. Kind of reminds me of how I felt about Damo at first...starts a bit slow, but then things start getting interesting and then I realized there's more to it than I appreciated.

Ugly actors/actresses? Depends on your aesthetics. Several reviewers at YesAsia were like "wow they're hot!"

Boring? Other reviewers at YesAsia characterized it as dynamic, powerful, and exciting. Some proudly stated that this drama is what made them start to learn Korean. Again, it depends on which context and frame of mind you're watching from.

From the review at http://thesandglass.wo.to/
"Many other k-dramas after this one just copied the plot, or characters, or style of this great drama. A good example is the recent SBS hit, ALL IN. it [sic] just COPIED the skeleton of Sandglass."

Now I wouldn't go so far as saying All In "copied" from Sandglass, but I can see the author's point. From an artistic point of view, it's a seminal piece of work that influenced other dramas. I was going to vote for All In until I read that blurb in a review. Got me interested to see where All In got its inspiration.

Sandglass as a cultural landmark:
Traffic was noticeably lighter in S. Korea during the times the drama aired...between 45%-60%(!) viewership for the episodes...streets were vacant during the highest viewership episodes. This series became a common cultural reference point around watercoolers at work.

Maybe if you aren't S.Korean you might not identify with the drama as much, but at least you can appreciate it as a cultural landmark for them.

Rarity:
If this is English subbed, then it's doubly rare. At the YesAsia site there were customers complaining that not only did the publisher run out of print but also that it was not subbed in English or Chinese. So this is a gem indeed if we can get a subbed version! Please vote for Sandglass. As another member said, we can always get All In or some others voluntarily seeded.

I'm not dissing the other series. It's an excellent choice list. I just don't want people to be mislead by some of the comments made by other members until they can watch it for themselves and decide.

I will do some last-minute-voting... again.

All In - coolest, most influential drama so far
The Sandglass / Moraeshigae - very interesting drama
Propose - one of the most boring so far

Yup, The Sandglass is very slow in the beginning but is very interesting and quite shaking in the middle. If you just like dramas for good looking actors... better stay away. This is serious drama based on real events.

Exactly. I fell asleep during the very first episode and nothing in that first episode made me want to continue watching. I'll be damned if I'm going to sit through another 3 or 4 episodes just to wait for the story to unfold.

Sandglass sounds really interesting from the description. I remember pictures of students demonstrating in Seoul, fighting riot police with long wooden canes (yes, I'm old), and I'm eager to learn more about Korean modern history.

Vote Sandglass! :thumleft:

I'd vote for Sandglass too, but I'm going to download the smaller asf files from Totuta's site and give the show another try that way. Perhaps I'm in that "ugly people in slow serious dramas are cool and interesting" phase right now. And plus I like bashing hyped-up shows. If this show doesn't deliver I'll be the first to bash it later on. I wish Dae Jang Geum were among the options, though.

i voted for 'propose', cuz mtlandis is on TEAM VSS and we look out for each other. :lol

besides, who can beat an offer like this. i can personally attest to the fact that mtlandis reseeded the entire series of 'all in' for his vss.

he's a man of his word, so i hope people can start voting for PROPOSE! :D

I assume people here are utilitarian and will vote for Propose, since someone just said they'd seed the other series. Unless everyone else is evil and hates him. But whatever :D

There are many series that often start "slow" or "boring," but as you continue watching, you're like...dang. From the reviews it seems to be this kind of drama. Kind of reminds me of how I felt about Damo at first...starts a bit slow, but then things start getting interesting and then I realized there's more to it than I appreciated.

Ugly actors/actresses? Depends on your aesthetics. Several reviewers at YesAsia were like "wow they're hot!"

Boring? Other reviewers at YesAsia characterized it as dynamic, powerful, and exciting. Some proudly stated that this drama is what made them start to learn Korean. Again, it depends on which context and frame of mind you're watching from.

From the review at http://thesandglass.wo.to/
"Many other k-dramas after this one just copied the plot, or characters, or style of this great drama. A good example is the recent SBS hit, ALL IN. it [sic] just COPIED the skeleton of Sandglass."

Now I wouldn't go so far as saying All In "copied" from Sandglass, but I can see the author's point. From an artistic point of view, it's a seminal piece of work that influenced other dramas. I was going to vote for All In until I read that blurb in a review. Got me interested to see where All In got its inspiration.

Sandglass as a cultural landmark:
Traffic was noticeably lighter in S. Korea during the times the drama aired...between 45%-60%(!) viewership for the episodes...streets were vacant during the highest viewership episodes. This series became a common cultural reference point around watercoolers at work.

Maybe if you aren't S.Korean you might not identify with the drama as much, but at least you can appreciate it as a cultural landmark for them.

Rarity:
If this is English subbed, then it's doubly rare. At the YesAsia site there were customers complaining that not only did the publisher run out of print but also that it was not subbed in English or Chinese. So this is a gem indeed if we can get a subbed version! Please vote for Sandglass. As another member said, we can always get All In or some others voluntarily seeded.

I'm not dissing the other series. It's an excellent choice list. I just don't want people to be mislead by some of the comments made by other members until they can watch it for themselves and decide.

ahahahahahahahaha :sleeping:
Too long-winded for ya huh? Man, if I knew I'd be able to help you sleep, I should have pulled out the unabridged version ;-)

***
Wow, Propose is winning by quite a bit. Well, at least I'll be able to see All In if Propose wins. I just hope Sandglass will be seeded too eventually.

No, no one hates me, except maybe my teenage kids, but they hate anyone who sets down rules for them.

I am actually a very likable woman. LOL If it didn't violate their privacy, I could give you the names and numbers of my clients and they would tell you what a great person I am. :D

Actually, you get 3 series for the price of 1vote because I am willing to VSS All In the first 2 weeks of March and Winter Sonata the second two weeks. :D

looks like ALL IN might be this month's KSOTM....! definitely catching up! Hope there's actually chemistry between the two leads, most of the current ones that I've seen, as great as the drama is, there's an apparent lack in chemistry.

I always had the impression that KSOTM is based on voting for the best drama that you've seen, rather than that you'd like to see.....heh heh
