My previous Movie Monday with an action theme didn’t really get a lot of feedback compared to my first one which dealt with first love. I’m going to assume that this post will get more feedbacks because of one thing: it’s all about ROMANCE!
Love really does make the world go round as proven by these five films which had romance as its central theme. Some were a hit and miss while some were definitely not to be missed.
Yes, you read that right! It didn’t seem so long ago that the Chinese version of Korea’s famous reality show “We Got Married” premiered in Jiangsu TV. This show launched so many shipper dreams all thanks to the pairings of Ruby Lin-Ren Zhong, Kimi Qiao-Xu Lu, and Choi Siwon-Liu Wen. To relive those moments, you may check out my partner’s previous recaps 😉 Good news to all fangirls out there as another season will keep us entertained with a perfect premiere date on (Western) Valentine’s Day! But before that, we must ask one very important question: WHO ARE THE OTPs?!!
I’m back to give you the 2nd part (and last!) 2015 Drama Round-Up! If you missed part 1 then I suggest you read it here for other drama reviews 😀
Still the same disclaimer: These are brief (not really brief for some lol) reviews of 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.
I have divided it into parts just like the last time: STORY IN A NUTSHELL (without spoilers, I promise!), POSITIVE (+) & NEGATIVE (-) things about it, and my OVERALL RATING.
Title: Go Lala Go 2
Native Title: 杜拉拉升职记
Country of Origin: China
Year Shown: 2015
Duration: ~104 minutes
My rating: 7.5/10
Cast: Vic Zhou as Wang Wei/David Ariel Lin as Du Lala Bolin Chen as Stanley Chen Nana as Sha Dangdang Michelle Chen in a guest role as Carrie
This is one of my most anticipated films (see previous blog post for reference) of the year because of its powerhouse casting. I mean, how can anyone miss out on watching a film featuring three of Taiwan’s greatest actors?! Despite my utmost excitement over this film, I didn’t really set my expectations high but I still ended up being disappointed. Read more for my detailed review!
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!
I know you may have seen so many news articles about this movie already but I still wanted to write about it because I can no longer hold my excitement! It was originally slated to be released next year but the official Weibo account of the film actually announced that it’s going to be out this November 11. So how can a fangirl like me not be excited, right?
