Anticipating Dramas

7.15.16 W 더블유 It’s been awhile since I’ve looked so forward to watching a Korean drama. Yes the storyline is unique and interesting but I think I’m mostly excited for Han Hyo Joo, haven’t seen her very much on screen lately. I remember in my Jaejoong obsession days I was immensely jealous of her because they…

美人為餡 Memory Lost

It’s interesting how a bunch of Chinese dramas in the crime genre just suddenly popped up in these past couple months. Not that I’m complaining though, I love these kind of dramas. I had happen to come across the trailer of Memory Lost on Youtube and was instantly interested. I haven’t seen Yang Rong act…

錦繡未央 Princess Wei Yang

This was a long anticipated drama that had been building up hype since like a year ago. I’ve always loved the chemistry between Tiffany Tang and Luo Jin and they even have Vanness Wu in here! Anyway this is a historical drama based off the true story of Princess Wei Young in Ancient China. Tiffany…

如果蝸牛有愛情When a Snail Falls in Love

YAY more dramas with Wang Kai. Wang Zi Wen from Ode to Joy is also with him in here. I’ve been looking forward to this for a really long time. It was really unexpected. I was under the impression that it would be a more conventional romance drama but it’s actually more of a crime drama…

飛魚高校生Swimming Battle [UPDATED]

Taiwan always has this weird pattern where in one season they have a great lineup of dramas and in the next, it’s shit. Luckily this drama appeared. I chose it mainly because of the cast with Kingone Wang and Mandy Wei. Mandy Wei is steadily improving as an actress. Kingone has always had the talent….

[Movie vs. Drama] Love 020 微微一笑很倾城

I wasn’t aware there was a movie until I finished the drama. Watching the movie after really gave me a new perspective and I guess more satisfaction, I really enjoyed the movie. You know, many people might say Jing Boran is nowhere near as good looking as Yang Yang but I enjoyed his portrayal of…

[Drama VS Movie]何以笙箫默 My Sunshine

My Sunshine was very popular when it first came out. I saw the drama way before the movie and was instantly hooked. It’s basically about a photographer called Zhao Mo Sheng who returns to China after seven years in America. Out of coincidence she bumps into her ex-boyfriend from college, He Yi Chen. Yi Chen…

微微一笑很倾城 Love 020

Okay I’ll admit, Yang Yang was the main attraction and catalyst for me to start watching this drama, although I’m also a fan of Zheng Shuang. But I will say that their acting both have much space for improvement. There are bigger issues with the story itself. I have mixed feelings about the drama with…

烏孫Wusun of Princess Jie You

I’ve always been fascinated about the ethnic minorities of China so naturally watching the setting of the storyline from Jie You Princess arose some curiosity. As many of you may know, most of the story takes place in a country called Wusun烏孫. The exact location of this country has been disputed by different historians but…

解忧公主 Princess Jie You [FINISHED]

Oh boy! This one is a long one. There was never a very clear synopsis or summary for this drama before I watched it, so I sort of went in blind. The summary on DramaWiki is also TOTALLY off, so I advise people to ignore it. Out of all the classic Chinese dramas I’ve seen,…

더블유 W Two Worlds

Yes I realize it’s about time for this one. Ugh Han Hyo Joo seriously never disappoints. The story line was really quite appealing to begin with, a modern supernatural, and then there was the cast. Oh Yeon Joo might seem exaggerated sometimes but because its Han Hyo Joo acting, it seems really believable and natural….

我的極品男友 Better Man [UPDATED]

It’s been off to a pretty good start with some strong characters. This is predominantly a romance drama, which is okay. I’ve become careful with these long daily dramas. They almost always start off pretty good and then it gets boring later on because they ultimately need to make it last 70 episodes. There are…

[FLASH REVIEW]킬미, 힐미 Kill me, Heal Me

Almost too AMAZING for words! I’ve always been fascinated by dissociative identity disorder AKA multiple personalities and have have read quite a bit about them. I even once imagined something like what happened in Kill Me, Heal Me as a drama so I knew I had to watch it when I read the summary. First and…
