Drama Round-up: My First Year of Drama-Watching (Part 1)

mg03-05

I first started watching dramas back when I was 8 years old because “Meteor Garden” was such a phenomenon. Up to now, I only know one person who never got into the hype and we all still jokingly judge her because of it haha! I watched K-dramas in the same local channel that aired Meteor Garden  years after. My love for Asian dramas eventually died and I went on to watch Western shows and I never imagined myself re-entering Dramaland. Not until the local channel that decided to air “Meteor Garden” two years ago and voila! This is already my third year of watching dramas. Good times, good times.

When I wrote my 2015 Year-End Drama Round-Up (part 1 & part 2), some dramas that I’ve watched already were being recommended. It was then that I realized that I never wrote about it here that’s why they were probably suggesting it. With that, I wrote about the dramas that I watched in my first year of fully getting into this wonderful world called dramaland. A lot of the dramas mentioned are very special in my heart and if only I could have all the time and willpower to write individual reviews on them, I would but the mini-reviews that you will be reading should suffice for now.

[Recap] Never-Before-Seen Scenes in “Our Times”

I remember earlier this month/year that particularly one cut scene in “Our Times” became a hot topic on Weibo thanks to Joe Chen for reposting it hihi. It was none other than her cut scene with Jerry Yan. It was posted almost everywhere but I insisted on waiting for my DVD just so I wouldn’t feel like I spent a lot of money just to see it haha!

As promised in my previous Our Times-related post, I took up the courage to understand what’s been happening in the cut scenes without subtitles. I categorized it as a recap because I’ll be dissecting all the almost 12 minutes of (11:42 to be exact!) cut scenes from the film. This time, I have a better quality of screencaps thanks to my beloved DVD ❤

Unboxing the “Our Times” Deluxe Edition DVD

I may have mentioned in my previous posts regarding “Our Times” aka my all-time favorite Taiwanese film that I pre-ordered the DVD last year. My long wait’s over as I have finally received my precious DVD today! I knew what I was going to receive but I was just beyond happy to receive the package. I’m not really sure how people create an “unboxing” blog post but I’ll give it a shot here 😉

Comparing Taiwan’s Most Successful Films: “You are the Apple of My Eye” vs. “Our Times”

Hello 2016! Hello readers! I’m here today to give you a comparative analysis on Taiwan’s all-time smash-hit films from 2011 and last year. Having rewatched both films recently, I decided to write a post about these successful films in detail and also my theories on why they turned out to be everyone’s favorites.

As much as I love having a lot of readers, I do recommend that you read this only when you have seen both films. If not, then I hope this post will make you want to watch them (or at least one) and enjoy as much as I did.

Year-End Special: 2015 Drama Round-Up (Part 2)

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.

Are we ready? 😀
