Singapore Web Drama Review True Lies 大话精 and Singapore Drama Review Hello From the Other Side 阴错阳差

It is some time since I wrote a review for Singapore Dramas haha. I dont like crime and legal dramas and the trailers of Singapore Dramas nowadays dont attract me haha.

starring Rui En 瑞恩 as Ru Yin, Shaun Chen 陈泓宇 as Jun Yang, Chen Han Wei 陈汉玮 as CEO of underworld, Ann Kok 郭舒贤 as Meng Jiao, Nick Teo 张钧淯, James Seah 谢宏辉, Hong Hui Fang 洪慧芳, Wang Yuqing 王昱青, Brandon Wong 黄炯耀, Chen Tian Wen 陈天文, Li Wen Hai 李文海, Ben Yeo 杨志龙, Ryan Lian 廖永谊

Hello from the other side has some nice fantasy but there is a lack of plot development and tension after some time. Liked how they link the underworld to Earth. The servants made up of paper are funny but frightening haha. Liked how the houses are built in the underworld, they just rise from the ground immediately haha. Liked the sad scenes. The theme song perfectly suits the drama haha! Liked the development of relationship between Jun Yang and Ru Yin. It was fun watching them bickering. Liked the relationship between Meng Jiao and CEO of underworld. I guess I wont write a long review for this drama since I dropped it after the two messengers escape to Earth and possess two people’s bodies. I dont want to live in that underworld after I die, dont want to have anything to do with money haha. I guess the thing worth anticipating to me is the ending as Jun Yang is dead but Ru Yin was accidentally taken down to the underworld.

starring Ma Ang 马昂 as Aidan, Julie Tan 陈欣淇 as Nadia, Ian Fang as De Hua, Apple Chan 陈芷尤 as Mei Qi, Jalyn Han 韩雪卿

Happened to see this drama on television and decided to peek into it. Scanned through this drama.

Liked the fantasy! For example, how the lies can come true, how the liar with the power cant be killed. Of course, the special power has a side effect which is the liar will lose something precious to him/her with each lie. However, I dont really like the plot overall. The only parts I liked are the episodes where Aidan suddenly has a daughter due to his lie, the episodes where De Hua saves Mei Qi and Mei Qi saves him in return, and the last episode. My most favourite part of this drama is where Aidan realises his existence is actually part of someone’s lie and he chooses to disappear to change Nadia’s life (sry for the spoiler). This part adds a deeper meaning to the drama. Found De Hua foolish as he still wants Mei Qi to come back to him after she scammed him. But I guess it shows unconditional love. Happy that they still can have a good ending. Found the actor who acted as Aidan good-looking but the last scene spoilt his looks haha.

Singapore Drama Review Hero 大英雄

Hero (2016) 大英雄

Genre: Family, Romance, Neighborhood, Comedy

Enjoyment: 9/10  Pace: 8/10

starring Shaun Chen as Zhou Fada, Chen Hanwei as Ye Xiaoying, Jesseca Liu as Zhang Weixiong, Ian Fang as Zhang Weikang, Paige Chua as Ou Jinxuan, Andie Chen as Ou Jinguang, Bonnie Loo as Guan Meimei, He Yingying as Guan Meiyu, Sheila Sim as Fan Fangfang

This drama is so funny when it started, was laughing my head off. Fada is smart and appears out of nowhere many times, and he is often saying weird things or a lot of philosophical wise words. Jinguang’s hairstyle and how he talks so slowly is so funny. Weixiong’s brother, Weikang, is a good-for-nothing and his interaction with Meiyu is interesting, especially hilarious when he was splashed with pepper accidentally by Meiyu’s sister, Meimei. And more… Never seen such a comedy in Singapore dramas so far.

Watched this drama partially because of Shaun Chen and partially because my mother happened to switch on the television. Liked Fada’s character a lot in this drama and my sister also liked that character after watching even though she is not a Shaun Chen fan like me haha. You will know why if you watch it haha. It is surprising that the drama has a reflective voice in it and there are many questions the drama posed like “what you want to do if there is only one thing left you can do”, and “will you still do something if what you do now will affect what you are tomorrow”.

I thought Jinguang will end up with Fangfang, so unexpected who he ends up with hahaha. (Shall not give any spoiler). Other special mentions to Bonnie Loo and Paige Chua, Pan Ling Ling who acted well in the drama. Moved by how Pan Ling Ling’s character and his husband are so loyal towards each other even though they are poor. Their trust towards each other is just so heartwarming. No matter how her mother-in-law tries to frame her, her husband still believes in her totally. And it is funny how her mother-in-law totally “slap her own face” when she opposes to her granddaughter, Weixiong, marrying seemingly poor Fada and Pan Ling Ling’s character says that it is fine since her husband (the mother-in-law’s son) is poor but good. Bonnie acted well as the naive and silly girl but her love story with the rich guy didn’t pull off well.

Wanted to dismiss this drama at first since the trailer is not attractive beside Andie Chen saying that the audience is his hero haha… But it turned out well at least until it suddenly had a plot twist which threw me off and almost made me drop it. That is after Fada leaves to use his talent in stock investing and comes back to find people in the neighborhood behaving completely differently. I skipped some episodes here and there, especially towards the end, including the part when Fangfang is betrayed by her boyfriend.
