It’s been a while since I finished watching Three Lives Three World: Ten Miles of Peach Blossom. I was addicted and completed all 58 episodes in 4 days. One of the most enjoyable thing while watching was reading the comments!
It provided me with quite a bit of insights and a lot of amusement. So I picked some of my favourite comments that I either found really funny or agreed with to translate. Enjoy!
Lead actor Mark Chao got criticized for getting this role because “he wasn’t handsome enough” UGH whatever, people.
EPIC, AMAZING, FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT, BEAUTIFUL, ADDICTING, and all the other positive adjectives you could think of.
Yes, I’m officially part of the millions of people who got drunk with peach blossom wine. If you have been following us on Twitter, you could have easily seen how rapid the system of “Eternal Love” was eating me up. It is now one of the dramas that I consider very close to my heart since it has saved me from a drama slump (suffered for 3 months or more lol). If you want to know more of my thoughts regarding China’s biggest hit drama of the year, then go on and read some more.
Yes, I’m back to drama watching! Just gonna reblog this post so I can pick an on-going kdrama to watch and remind myself to watch The King’s Woman. (As for novel translation… I’m sorry but you might have to wait a bit more…)
I know. I didn’t do any updates last week because I was on vacation. The first half of the week was spending time with my sister’s family and dealing with horribly sluggish internet. The second half I was watching and recapping dramas which I hope to continue on a more regular basis. Don’t expect any simulcast recaps from me for awhile. I won’t apologize for that. It can be really hard sometimes.
Okay, so let’s get on to the new releases in anime, Asian dramas, and Asian movies. YouTube updates to come when I have the time (I’m going back down to my sister’s again this weekend…sigh).
One thing all chinese show viewers must be familiar with is: Product Placement! Hence, I have decided to start a new column called ‘Product Placement Review’ where I try out the stuff that I see in dramas and tell you how I find them. The first one will be Meng Niu’s Chun Zhen Drinking Yogurt which is a sponsor for a lot of shows, with one of the most recent ones being Go Fighting Season 3!
In Time With You turned out to be one of my top few favourite taiwanese dramas so I’m definitely looking forward to this. I found the Korean remake to be pretty meh but I like both main leads here so I’m really anticipating it. I can already imagine the two as Cheng Youqing (whose character I loved) and Li Daren (…whom was borderline creepy if you think hard about it). Anyway, Zhang Ruoyun looks so good cooking (as seen in Diva Hits the Road 3) so I’m pretty sure this drama will be an eyeful too.
PS: Zhang Ruoyun and Tang Yixin (whom I found really pretty from Legend of Zhen Huan) officially announced that they are dating recently. I’m really happy for them so I’ll take this chance to send some blessings their way. Hopefully we’ll be hearing wedding bells soon!
Zhang Tianai (The Founding of an Army), Zhang Ruoyun (Sky on Fire) and Xu Weizhou(Addiction) have been announced as the leads of upcoming modern romance drama TheEvolution of Our Love 爱情进化论. The producers aren’t promoting it as such, but the story line definitely sounds like a remake of the hit 2011 Taiwanese drama In Time With You.
