Chinese Novel: 你是男的 我也爱 I Love You Even If You Are A Man Review

I love you even if you are a man 你是男的我也爱
I Love You Even If You Are A Man 你是男的,我也爱 by Angelina
Chinese online novel here and English translation is in progress here. (Check out more links for english translation at the bottom of the post)

This is the original novel for the movie trilogy, I Love You If You Were Man. This story revolves around Mai Ding, a cute and goofy boy-next-door and An Ziyan, the cool and aloof heartthrob whom everyone can’t help love yet fear. It all began with a misunderstanding – Mai Ding was bribed by his college roommate to find out An Ziyan’s sexual orientation and An Ziyan had played a prank on Mai Ding in a rare moment of amusement, leading Mai Ding to believe he is bisexual even though he is straight. Mai Ding had little friends since young and wanted to ‘make his life more interesting’ by knowing people of ‘diverse background’ (i.e. An Ziyan) so he would have a cool story to tell his grandchildren in the future. And hence, a friendship which turned into more started to form between the two most unlikely characters.

[Warning: This book is about a gay relationship and there might be explicit scenes in it so read only if you are comfortable.]

[NEWS] C-movie “Go Lala Go 2” with Taiwanese Triple Threat All Set for 11.11 Release

I’m pretty sure that the drama gods have been sleeping all these years when Vic Zhou and Ariel Lin’s respective careers in the Taiwanese dramaland have been skyrocketing. Well, it doesn’t matter now that the movie gods were surely awake and decided to spoil us fans with lots of love by putting these two together in a project. But wait, there’s more! These movie gods are just beyond amazing that they got Bolin Chen to be the second male lead of the movie. HELP!

So how can a fangirl like me not be excited, right?

[NEWS] Joe Chen and Zhang Han reunite in C-movie “Youth Never Returns”

It has already been tried and tested that any movie or drama that focuses on youth, school, and nostalgia would yield to definite success. This is why there’s no stopping the Chinese entertainment industry from creating movies/dramas with those themes. Another formula to success is putting a tried and tested pairing in that kind of theme and voila! We can have something like “Youth Never Returns” which has a high probability of box-office success given that big stars like Joe Chen and Zhang Han are headlining it.

[NEWS] TW-Movie “Our Times” featuring Joe Chen and Jerry Yan premieres tomorrow

It seems like the Chinese-speaking entertainment industry isn’t going to let go of creating films/dramas with school, youth, or nostalgic themes. I wouldn’t blame them because such projects with these themes have actually proven to be very successful in the box office. (READ: “So Young” in China, “You Are the Apple of my Eye” in Taiwan, and many more). Another similarly themed movie is set to create box office success which is “Our Times” as it premieres in Taiwan nationwide tomorrow.

Reblog: Tiny Times finale set for Summer 2015, Kai Ko out

tiny-times

Whee, Tiny Times IV is finally going to be out. It’s pretty upsetting to see that both Kai Ko and Rhydian Vaughan won’t be in this movie cause they were the reason I even started watching the movie but I have grew to love the ever adorable Chen Xuedong so I look forward to his happily-ever-after with Yang Mi’s character.

I have finished watching the Tiny Times tv drama too, which I loved as well but sadly, while the drama was more in depth, it did not cover as much plot in terms of breadth. I would love to watch more! Bonus point cause Chen Xuedong appeared in the drama too, albeit as a more minor character.

Looking forward to the part IV of this movie before I start embarking on my journey to read the actual novel it was based on. I’ve wanted to read the novel for ages but it is so lengthy, I never had the motivation to start.

PS: Cfensi is the main blog I follow for updates in the chinese entertainment world, so it is highly likely that I will be reblogging a lot of their stuff since I only plan to post my own thoughts and not news. Good things are meant to be shared anyway!

Cheers.
