One thing all chinese show viewers must be familiar with is: Product Placement! Hence, I have decided to start a new column called ‘Product Placement Review’ where I try out the stuff that I see in dramas and tell you how I find them. The first one will be Meng Niu’s Chun Zhen Drinking Yogurt which is a sponsor for a lot of shows, with one of the most recent ones being Go Fighting Season 3!
My favourite reality show — Go! Fighting is back with season 3! It will start airing on 9 July 2017 with the original cast — Sun Honglei, Huang Lei, Huang Bo, Wang Xun, Show Luo Zhixiang and Lay Huang Yixing!
By now, everyone should know I love Go Fighting! And while recapping is too tedious to do, I love watching and discussing the Go Fighting cast. (In fact, I’m now watching To Be A Better Man, starring Sun Honglei & Zhang Yixing but that’s another story for another day.) Today, we’ll be talking about our favourite little lamb turned fox, Exo’s Lay Zhang Yixing.
My favouritest reality show is back with its original cast! The first episode was awesome. Definitely worth the wait and I am embarrassed to say that it was so successful, I might have even teared a bit.
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?!!
Go Fighting! has just recently concluded the first season with 11 episodes, 1 episode lesser than the initial stated amount. But no worries, for ultra fans like me, there will be a movie next January! Continue reading →
As you probably know, I have been catching Go Fighting! religiously every week. When I posted my first impression post, it was still an unknown variety show. I had rave reviews about it and apparently I wasn’t the only one that thought so. Go Fighting! had been dubbed as the dark horse for this season of variety shows and it became really popular in China. (Look at my screencaps below and you will understand why!) However, troubles came together with it and it has suspended airing for 3 weeks. New episodes were never shown like they were supposed to be on August 16, August 23 and August 30. I did some research and found some possible reasons which I have translated into English below.
Me when I don’t get to watch new episodes of Go Fighting!

Native Title:极限挑战 (Direct translation: Challenge the limit)
Country of Origin: China

Go Fighting! is a variety show by Dongfang Channel 东方卫视 andairs every Sunday at 9pm. It stars Show Luo, Huang Bo, Huang Lei, Sun HongLei, Wang Xun and Zhang Yixingas the permanent members and will have guests coming each week. I never heard of this show and chanced upon it when a phone notification from one of my drama watching apps popped up with the name “罗志祥” (Show Luo) and caught my interest.
