Happy Valentines, my lovely readers! Would like to share some quotes from one of the most beautiful drama I have watched. (And no, it’s not a BL even though the cover photo seems misleading.) It wasn’t the best drama but it was one that touched me deeply. Maybe not every love has a happy ending, but it is in the bittersweet that we grow.
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.
I chanced upon Fleet of Time, the movie version of Back In Time. After watching for 20 minutes, I condemned it and decided the drama version was much better. This brought me to rewatch Back In Time and the feels overwhelmed me. While this drama might not have made it onto the list of my favourite dramas in terms of plot because the storyline is pretty overused and naggy (especially towards the back), I must admit that this is a beautiful drama with many hidden gems. This drama has a lot of noteworthy quotes. I still have them saved on a note in my laptop even though it’s been a year since I watched it – I will share them next time round!
More importantly, Back In Time was the first (and practically only) drama where I had a real problem of second-lead syndrome. Throughout the entire drama, I felt that the male lead was undeserving of the female lead. I have met my fair share of ‘perfect second leads’ but Qiao Ran from Back In Time was the only one that kept me firmly on his ship the entire drama without ever rooting for the male lead. The most amazing thing about this drama is that despite the fact that I *almost* despise the male lead, I can easily understand why the female lead chose him and would continuously disappoint my poor Qiao Ran.
