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!
It’s been a while since I finished watching Three Lives Three World: Ten Miles of Peach Blossom. I was addicted and completed all 58 episodes in 4 days. One of the most enjoyable thing while watching was reading the comments!
It provided me with quite a bit of insights and a lot of amusement. So I picked some of my favourite comments that I either found really funny or agreed with to translate. Enjoy!
Lead actor Mark Chao got criticized for getting this role because “he wasn’t handsome enough” UGH whatever, people.
EPIC, AMAZING, FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT, BEAUTIFUL, ADDICTING, and all the other positive adjectives you could think of.
Yes, I’m officially part of the millions of people who got drunk with peach blossom wine. If you have been following us on Twitter, you could have easily seen how rapid the system of “Eternal Love” was eating me up. It is now one of the dramas that I consider very close to my heart since it has saved me from a drama slump (suffered for 3 months or more lol). If you want to know more of my thoughts regarding China’s biggest hit drama of the year, then go on and read some more.
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.
Sorry it took me forever before posting another Movie Monday! It’s all piling up now as I’ve been watching a lot of movies recently. As the title states, I’ll be reviewing 5 movies which fall under the Action genre. It’s also part 1 out of an uncertain number because only time can tell how many action films I’d be watching throughout the years haha!
Trust me, I’m no action fan because I’m all for romance, comedy, melodrama, etc. and basically not action at all but I managed to enjoy these titles. After all, what is life without any action? 😉
2016 is looking good for the Chinese entertainment industry! It seems like the drama and movie gods have been reading my Christmas Wishlist from last year… HAHA! You may read more on the upcoming dramas in blogs such as AVirtualVoyage and CDramaDevotee. For this post, I’ll be mainly posting about the projects that I’m really excited about and some may have not been covered by other blogs so might as well spread the love!
