So the coronavirus has me stuck at home and I finally decide to watch The Untamed. Of course I finished in within 5 days and can’t seem to get it out of my head. Everything that I have watched ever since the Untamed didn’t seem to catch my attention… until this drama.
It seems like I either never finish my dramas or after I finish them, I don’t have the time or passion to write about it. So let me just write a quick thought about this drama when it is still relevant to me.
Seige in Fog (人生若如初相见) is a another Chinese drama that’s based off of a novel 迷雾围城 by Fei Wo Si Cun (匪我思存). It’s a melodrama and romance about Yi Liankai, a good-for-nothing playboy from a wealthy military family played by Elvis Han who forces Qin Sang (played by Sun Yi) into marriage after falling in love with her at first sight. Qin Sang is a daughter of a high ranking official but when her family’s status fell, under her mother’s wish, she married Liankai to help her father regain his status. Slowly she falls in love with Liankai but her first love Pan Jian Qi played by Jeremy Jones suddenly appears and becomes her husband’s assistant. He makes it known to her that he wants her back and stays by Liankai’s side to get close to her. However that isn’t his only goal. He is part of a society with a hidden agenda aimed against the Yi Family. Continue reading
So after reading an article saying that netizens are complaining about the ugly male leads, I decided to take a look. Honestly, it was very difficult to keep waiting for the episodes to come out since I was used to chinese dramas being released daily. So I decided to watch the episodes that are already out and if I hated it, I would stop thinking about it. I went into this drama with poor expectations because it didn’t make the top 10 drama ranking however I am now on episode six and I am sadly proclaiming that I am addicted. (FYI Hu Ge’s drama The Disguiser ranked number 1) I am writing the first episode recap of Yunge From the Desert because I can’t get this drama out of my head. Continue reading
With high expectations going into “Cage of Love” I was thoroughly disappointed and after searching for shows to watch, I remembered about this mystery series that received raves when it was aired so I decided to give this a try.
I tend to find mysteries more intriguing and so far this drama has not failed me. Continue reading
As a big fan of “We Got Married”, when I heard Ruby Lin and Siwon officially joined “We Are In Love”, I knew I had to check this out. Continue reading
So TVB released two dramas-“Eye In The Sky” headlined by Kevin Cheng, Ruco Chan, and Tavia Yeung and “Young Charioteers” headlined by Him Law, Sammy Sum and Sisley Choi- on the same night two weeks ago.
I chose to watch “Eye In The Sky” over “Young Charioteers” because of the stellar cast and the action/thriller genre seemed to interest me more. I did catch a glimpse of some scenes from “Young Charioteers” when I saw my parents watching it and it did look kinda nice, gaving me a warm sunny light-hearted feel. Continue reading
My first impressions of Healer after watching episode 1 and 2
After seeing all the stills and gifs from tumblr, I already got a feeling that this would be an action-packed James Bond style drama. I had deliberated whether to watch this or Pinocchio first but this seemed far more exciting. And I was right !!! Continue reading
Silent Separation aka My Sunshine aka 何以笙箫默 ep 1-4 Recap and First Impressions
I first found out about this drama when someone asks me to help translate the drama on viki. I went into this drama not knowing what the full synopsis is-just something about a lovers beings separated due to some misunderstanding but later meets again but struggles to get back together due to different obstacles.
This drama is more of a romantic melodrama with inner struggle between leads due to misunderstandings.
It is based on a novel By Gu Man’s Silent Separation which is also the same writer as the person who wrote Shan Shan Comes To Eat which was turned into a drama and I had breezed through. Continue reading
