As another good year closes, another good one (*crossing our fingers*) is coming very soon! 2017 was a really good year of dramas for me as supported by my year-end round-up. One thing to be happy about is that 2018 is already looking so good with the line-up of dramas that is getting ready to hit our screens. Join my excitement as I write about the dramas that I’m happily anticipating for this new year!
I’ve been looking forward to writing this ever since I got the idea in my head. In this post, I’ll be writing brief reviews about all the dramas that I watched this year. So this doesn’t necessarily mean that the dramas were all made in 2015 as the title of this post may have suggested. This is part 1 out of 2 2015 Drama Round-ups that I’ll be writing.
My year in dramas is pretty colorful which I need to highlight: 1.) I watched a lot of C-dramas more than I intended to 2.) It was my first time to watch a drama while it’s currently airing 3.) I went beyond my habit of watching C/TW dramas by watching J-dramas (yay!) 4.) It also concerns going beyond my habit: watched a period/wuxia drama for the first time! 5.) I was able to watch some dramas which have been collecting dust in my never-ending plan-to-watch list already haha! and most importantly, 6.) I started blogging about dramas!
I’ll be dividing it into parts: STORY IN A NUTSHELL (without spoilers, I promise!), POSITIVE (+) & NEGATIVE (-) things about it, and my OVERALL RATING.
So are we ready? 😀
Happy belated Singles Day! Singles Day is celebrated on 11/11 every year in China because the amount of ‘1’s in 11/11 is like an amass of singles. It’s a big thing in China and promotions and sales on Taobao, China’s biggest online shopping retailer went through the roof on Single’s Day.
But this Singles Day, it’s special. Vic Chou (Zhou Yumin), affectionately known as Zai Zai, had announced his marriage through Weibo on the eve of Singles Day, crushing the hearts of millions. Vic Zhou is married to his long-time girlfriend, Reen Yu (Yu Hong Yuan).
