Merry Christmas, dearest readers! It’s that time of the year again when I look back into the dramas that I’ve watched in a year. Comparing it to my 2016 record of 12 dramas and 6 specials, I only managed to finish 10 dramas this year and most of them were even started last year. What a great decline and the trend observed was that as I grew older, the less dramas I get to watch when I thought it would be the opposite *sighs*.
On a brighter side, I ended up loving more than half of the dramas that I watched out of 10 so quality over quantity was probably the main theme of this year’s drama round-up. I’ll stop talking now and hope you can join me in going through this wonderful drama year!
After having my life completely ruined by “Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms“, I thought that I would never be able to rise from the dead or probably just stay as an immortal forever. I was wrong because an innocent and nostalgia-themed drama picked me up but only to leave me become a soul because this drama killed me a lot of times.
Hundreds of dramas dealing with these kinds of themes have already been made, some stood out while some were just forgettable. Given that this drama’s premise isn’t unique anymore, then what made people love it so much? Read more to find out why this drama is closing out my 2017 on a beautiful note!
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!
Hmmm… I smell that something good is cooking! And it’s none other than a Taiwanese drama being deliciously concocted with perfect eye candy leads in Wu Kang Ren (as Ting En) & Ivy Shao (as Wei Qing) in “The Perfect Match”.
