China Drama Review Whirlwind Girl 旋风少女

My sister and I happened to rewatch some parts of this drama due to a lack of dramas to watch nowadays so I decided to quickly write this review before it gets postponed to dont know when.
(Sigh, such a serious lack of dramas to watch since the change in trend of genre of kdramas. Felt that the scriptwriting for kdramas in general has deteriorated, even though many people seem to still enjoy them. China modern dramas are still not good enough to replace kdramas at the moment. Used to enjoy sg dramas in the past but based on the trailers nowadays, I feel that the target audience has narrowed. I guess there is nothing I can do but be more understanding towards my drama friend…)

Dropped Abyss, The Secret Life of My Secretary, Search: WWW at the first few episodes. Currently finishing up Angel’s Last Mission: Love and finished watching Perfume. Hopefully I can finish Angel’s Last Mission: Love as my sister dropped it at the 3rd last episode. Just finished watching Super Star Academy which my sister recommended me. It is quite a good watch. Currently watching Debut china drama which my sister recommended me. More or less finished scanning through About is Love, The Night of the Comet, From Survivor to Healer (Didnt watch middle part), and My Poseidon which do not have plots that are good enough but I have my own reasons for scanning through them. Started on Hotel Del Luna which is good.

Doing this by memory.

Whirlwind Girl (2015) 旋风少女

Enjoyment: 9/10  Pace: 9/10  No. of times I watched it: 3

 

starring Hu Bingqing as Qi Baicao, Yang Yang as Ruo Bai, Chen Xiang as Fang Tinghao, Bai Jingting as Yu Chuyuan, Zhao Yuannuan as Fang Tingyi, Yang Tailang as Shen Bo, Leo Wu as Hu Yifeng, Tan Songyun as Fan Xiaoying, Li Ze as Wu Xiuda, Yu Haoyang as Wu Xiuqin, Yu Tinger as Qu Guangya, Jiang Yiyi as Kim Min-joo, Zhang Xueying as Li En-xiu, Jang Tae-hoon as Min Shenghao

Happened to come across this drama due to becoming a fan of Yang Yang after watching him in Love O2O. This drama is a lot better than Love O2O to me and Yang Yang’s character is totally different here. Wanted to dismiss this drama when I started it as I feel that the personal monologue in the first episode is weird. Luckily, I didnt. Once I got past that, I couldnt stop watching.

The thing that stands out in this drama is Ruo Bai’s selfless love. He doesnt need Bai Cao to reciprocate his love at all and doesnt even want Bai Cao to know how much he does/has done for her. Liked how Ruo Bai likes to write calligraphy. And it is interesting how it is used to show his frustration and anger once and also shows how much he sacrifices for Bai Cao in the scene that he had to use newspapers instead of his usual calligraphy paper to help pay for her training expenses at the academy. Touched by Ruo Bai’s love for Bai Cao, especially towards the end when he chooses to help Bai Cao (because it is the critical time in her Taekwondo journey) instead of caring about his own health or when he risks his life to plead with the culprit to tell the truth that Bai Cao’s master/Taekwondo teacher did not use drug for his competition. I dont think such a person exists in the world and it is also not that good in a relationship as one person is giving too much and the other is not giving enough but I liked the character a lot and it shows unconditional love very well. My sister is so angry at him and wants to scold him for his foolishness at the 2nd time she watched it with me haha.

Chased this drama due to the Taekwondo competitions. Ruo Bai is a very good coach and he manages to guide Bai Cao not only in her trainings, but also in competitions to help her improve and develop and make good use of her strengths so that she can win in competitions. Enjoyed watching how there are many different types of interesting opponents whom Bai Cao needs to find out their weaknesses and beat. Enjoyed watching the cool stunts performed by Bai Cao during competitions.

Liked the character Bai Cao. Her loyalty to her Taekwondo master/teacher shines in this drama. Although Guang Ya, the Taekwondo master’s biological daughter, draws a line with him after the drug incident, Bai Cao never changes how she treats him and her belief that he is innocent never wavered. She also refuses to change her master even though that can lead to a better future in Taekwondo. Liked how she has great strength due to practice even though she didnt undergo any Taekwondo training. Felt that she looks a lot more cool than Ruo Bai when doing the Taekwondo moves haha. Liked the soft toy that she carries around. It looks like a grass which kind of represents her. Enjoyed watching her growth as she becomes better and better at Taekwondo. Liked how Bai Cao respects Chu Yuan’s decision to never do Taekwondo again without question and even prevents the battle between Ting Hao and Chu Yuan.

Liked the development of relationship and chemistry between Bai Cao and Ruo Bai. Liked the interactions between Ruo Bai and Bai Cao, even though most of the sweet interactions happen without the knowledge of the other party (as mentioned above about unconditional love). For example, a sweet but funny scene is where Ruo Bai secretly unlocks the gate for Bai Cao to enter as she comes back late/after curfew time but she jumps over the wall (?) despite receiving the note from under the gate. Liked watching Ruo Bai’s smiles haha.

Felt neutral about the character Chu Yuan. The good part of the character and the bad part of the character balances out haha. Liked how he is caring and gentle, and how he has a background story of being very good at Taekwondo but quits due to various reasons. However, he did not firmly reject Ting Yi and caused harm to Bai Cao so he is not good enough for Bai Cao to me. Plus, there is always a right timing for something and he loses his chance to be with Bai Cao due to him leaving. Even if he comes back and is sure of his feelings for Bai Cao, it is too late haha.

Liked the character Ting Hao. He is a good brother to Ting Yi and a good friend to Bai Cao and later a good friend to Ruo Bai. It is cool that he is good at Taekwondo. It is funny how Ting Hao starts to like Bai Cao after he pulls her into his car through the ceiling to prevent her from getting hit by his sport car. It is funny how he tries to hide his identity and gets closer to Bai Cao. Laughed at the ridiculously (?) funny methods he uses to confess his love for Bai Cao like pouring flower petals through a drone (?), and singing to Bai Cao with a band in front of many. Although he is immature and doesnt care about Bai Cao’s feelings at the start, he gradually becomes a more understanding person. It is good that he is so rich haha. Liked it when he uses his wealth for good purposes like the phone and tracking device he gives Bai Cao when she goes overseas and they come to good use when she really is separated from the others on the street as she went to catch a thief. It is funny how he always wants to compete with Chu Yuan or whoever he deems worthy. Later on, when he finds out about what Ruo Bai did for Bai Cao without letting her know, he hints to Bai Cao about it and gives up pursuing Bai Cao. Liked how he is a good friend to Ruo Bai towards the end when he forces and personally brings Ruo Bai to go for check-up and consultation, even though Ruo Bai is too stubborn and didnt go for treatment at the end. My sister liked the character more the second time we watched it together. May become a fan of Chen Xiang after this drama.

Liked the characters Xiao Ying and Yi Feng. Liked how Xiao Ying is so cheery and bubbly. She adds quite a lot of humour to the drama. Liked how she is such a loyal friend to Bai Cao. It is funny how Yi Feng is often seen yawning. Liked how Yi Feng is good at Taekwondo. Liked the friendship between Yi Feng and Ruo Bai. It was fun to watch the interactions between Xiao Ying and Yi Feng. Liked the development of the relationship and the chemistry between them, even though they didnt become a couple at this season and Xiao Ying likes Ruo Bai initially. May become Leo Wu’s/Wu Lei’s or Tan Songyun’s fan after this drama.

Liked the acting by the cast! Liked how there are many heartwarming and touching scenes in this drama and I could feel tears in my eyes several times. For example, when Xiao Ying kneels in the rain with Bai Cao to stop her from continue doing so, when Xiao Ying brings Bai Cao to her house and say that Bai Cao can depend on her, when Bai Cao cheers for Guang Ya during Guang Ya’s competition even though she was forced to leave that Taekwando team before that. It is funny how Min Joo always wants to challenge Bai Cao haha. It is funny how young Min Joo is immature but strong and Sheng Hao, her senior, has to try to keep her under control. Liked En Xiu who is cool and elegant. This is one of the few times that an actress can attract me without many scenes. Liked her interactions with Bai Cao, Ting Hao, Chu Yuan, and Min Joo. Enjoyed watching the interactions among people in Song Bai Taekwondo Center. Didnt like Ting Yi, the biased coach, Quan Sheng Taekwondo Center people and a little dont like Guang Ya. Liked how there is an analyst who is Ting Hao’s friend.

Currently watching Yang Yang’s new drama The King’s Avatar.

China Drama Review My Amazing Boyfriend 2 我的奇妙男友2

My Amazing Boyfriend 2 (2019) 我的奇妙男友2之恋恋不忘

Enjoyment: 8.5/10

starring Mike Angelo as Xue Ling Qiao, Yu Esther/Yu Shu Xin as Tian Jing Zhi, Chen Lu Yuan as Xue Chang An, Li Ge Yang as Yun Zhen, Tian Yi Tong as Ye Mei Xiao, Fingal Fu as Li Yan Zhi, Aro Yang as Feng Dong Dong / Feng Re Re, Yang Zhi Ying as Bai Lu, Miles Wei as Dr. Jiang/Jiang Yi Heng

Wasnt interested in starting this drama when it was screening. Then, my sister decided to watch it so we tried it together. We dropped it after a few episodes as my sister felt that Yu Shu Xin is trying too hard to imitate how the previous lead actress acted Tian Jing Zhi. She also found her too crazy haha.

After that, we somehow finished scanning through this drama separately. I finished watching this drama at around end May. My reason was I was too bored at that time haha. And this drama was kind of worth the time.  Felt that the characters are distinct and well-portrayed. This drama has enough of what makes a good drama with elements such as well-written characters throughout, romance, friendships, heartwarming scenes, sad scenes, and comedy scenes. However, the pace is too slow for me. From around 1/4-1/2 way, I keep thinking “Why is this drama so long?”. I skipped through the crime-related parts which mostly involve the character Yan Zhi from Season 1 but it is still too long. Anyway, felt sad for him.  Although Xue Ling Qiao saves him with his blood in season 1, he has to watch Xue Ling Qiao get together with Tian Jing Zhi and it doesnt seem like he will like someone else. I didnt really watch My Amazing Boyfriend Season 1, only sneak peeked into it.

Liked the interactions between Xue Ling Qiao (XLQ, Ling Qiao sounds funny haha) and Tian Jing Zhi (Jing Zhi). It is funny how Jing Zhi has sleeping disorder and can fall asleep anytime and anywhere. Enjoyed watching how XLQ cares for Jing Zhi. For eg, showing looks of concern, protecting her from harm, cooking big meals for her, researching information on pregnancy, carrying her home/to her bed when she falls asleep somewhere else. One of the scenes that left a deep impression on me is the scene where XLQ gets to know that Jing Zhi may be harmed and goes searching for her at night. After knowing that she went to Mei Xiao’s house, it is funny how he rang the doorbells of all the units in the block as Mei Xiao’s house happens to be at the highest (?) level and he didnt know haha. Liked the 3 (?) rules XLQ sets in their relationship, cant remember exactly what they are. Had fun watching them bicker and watching XLQ’s jealousy scenes. Laughed a lot at the treadmill scene where XLQ spoils the treadmill. Felt hungry when watching Jing Zhi eating a big meal and it is nice how XLQ sits there patiently or cooks for her. Felt that their relationship could have been better with a little more feelings of romance and tension.

Liked the acting by the cast! Especially liked Yu Shu Xin’s acting and Li Ge Yang’s acting. Felt that Yu Shu Xin acted well in both comedy scenes and sad scenes. Laughed a lot at the scenes at the start of the drama where Jing Zhi thought that XLQ is part of her dream and did many weird things. Liked the many different hats Jing Zhi wears haha. Unexpectedly cried at the scene where she tells her parents that XLQ’s lifetime is very long while her lifetime is very short while XLQ and Bai Lu are listening downstairs. My tears just flow out of my eyes without thinking. I was surprised and watched the scene a few times to check haha. One of the highlights of My Amazing Boyfriend 2 is Yun Zhen acted by Li Ge Yang. Liked how there is depth in the character. There are many different sides to the character, the happy-go-lucky side, immature side, mischievous and playful side, lonely side, determined side, loyal side. Liked how he likes to hang from chandelier haha. Felt that it was a strange but cool entrance when I saw it the first time. Felt sad for him when he sacrificed himself to save Bai Lu, and Jing Zhi and XLQ’s child. His last messages to all of them were touching and heartbreaking, especially the one to Mei Xiao. Felt heartwarming and a wave of happiness when he is revived towards the end (Sry for the spoiler). May become his fan after this drama.

   

XLQ and Jing Zhi’s child, Chang An, is cute! Chang An is another hightlight of the drama.  Liked how he can appear in Jing Zhi’s dreams before he was born, saying his thoughts in an indirect way and saving her life once. Those scenes left a deep impression on me as a mixture of feelings is evoked each time. It is funny how he is too mature for his age and it was fun watching his interactions with his parents. Liked how he is so smart.

 

Liked the development of relationship and the chemistry between Yun Zhen and Mei Xiao. Yun Zhen is a playboy but after he dates Mei Xiao, she clings onto him. Because of that, Yun Zhen avoids her, hides from her and escapes whenever he sees her or knows that she is coming. It is funny how Mei Xiao never fails to ask whoever that dates Yun Zhen “How much money do you want to leave Yun Zhen?”. Liked the background story between young Mei Xiao and Yun Zhen which Yun Zhen comes to realise towards the end of the drama. This adds depth to their relationship. Liked how Mei Xiao is smart and cool, even guessing that Yun Zhen is someone that cant die which is uncommon in dramas haha. Young Mei Xiao is so cute and smart haha! However, the relationship between them is a bit bland since Yun Zhen is an unwilling party in the relationship until their 3rd (?) contract date which includes the raining scene. Felt that their bickering is not enough.

Enjoyed the fantasy parts. For example, how XLQ and Yun Zhen can run very fast and jump very high, how they can heal themselves, and how Bai Lu has photographic memory. It is cool to watch XLQ and Yun Zhen’s fighting scenes, even though it is expected that Yun Zhen will lose to XLQ eventually haha. Enjoyed watching the interactions among Feng Dong Dong, XLQ and Yun Zhen as they later live together in XLQ’s house and also the interactions among them and Jing Zhi, Mei Xiao, Bai Lu. It is funny how Bai Lu is poor at small talks haha. Dr Jiang/Yi Heng looks good-looking haha. Felt sad about Yi Heng’s past. Too bad there is no good ending for him. Liked the osts of the drama and was impressed that Yu Shu Xin sang the happy catchy song for the drama.

Hot Girl (2016) Chinese Drama

Hot Girl 麻辣变形计 (2016)

Cast: Dilraba Dilmurat as Guan Xiao Di, Ma Ke as Liang Da Wei, Wang Yang as Cui Tian Qi, Liu Chan as Ju Liang, Shao Bing as Xiong Kuo Hai, Eliza as Liu Sha, Ai Xiao Di as Zhang Yan, Lou Jia Yue as Mary, Wang Lu as Qin Sheng

Episodes: 37

My Own Review:

I like how this show has quite a lot of fighting scenes (compared to Sweet Combat). I feel that shows that are related to combat sports should have quite a lot of fighting scenes as this will allow characters in the show to display their amazing skills. I like how Guan Xiao Di is very good at fighting.

hot girl guan xiaodi

It is amazing how she is good at many other things as well (like playing pool).

hot girl guanxiaodi.JPEG

I like how Xiong Kuo Hai, the boss of the bodyguard company L.H.S.D., treats his employee. Xiong Kuo Hai treats his employees like family. One instance of him treating his employee like family is when he gives Liu Sha and Qin Sheng a mission, which is to take a break and marry each other during their break (if I am not wrong). Xiong Kuo Hai also gives his employees a second chance if his employees decide to turn a new leaf.

Putting this picture of Guan Xiao Di and Liang Da Wei as I like the shirt that they are wearing. The dog that is wearing sunglasses seems to be bodyguards too (just like Guan Xiao Di and Liang Da Wei). Hahaha…

China Drama Review Sweet Dreams 一千零一夜

Updated on 29/12/18 as it feels like something is missing

Sweet Dreams (2018) 一千零一夜

Enjoyment: 10/10  Pace: 9/10, 8/10 sometimes  No. of times I watched it: 2

   

starring Deng Lun as Bo Hai, Dilraba Dilmurat as Ling Ling Qi, Zhang Haowei as Chen Mo, Zhu Xudan as Zhou Xin Yan, Chen Yilong as Mo Nan, Wang Ruizi as
Lu Bao Ni

Finished it at around September this year. Cant remember why I started watching this haha. I remember that while it is screening, I randomly watched the most recent episode and found Bo Hai too crazy and the actor did not look good-looking so didnt pay much attention to the drama. But cant remember why I started watching it haha. Maybe because I read somewhere that there is fantasy in the plot? Lucky I didnt miss this drama haha…

Loved the fantasy element in the drama a lot! Due to error in the sleep bands which aim to promote better quality sleep, Ling Ling Qi is able to enter Bo Hai’s dreams when both of them are asleep and wearing the bands. It is interesting to see the different dreams Bo Hai has and they are related to what is happening in the company. Liked how there are many types of settings for the dreams and how Bo Hai and Ling Ling Qi go into different roles each time. Some settings are very beautiful haha. I especially liked the setting where it looks magical and there is a lake and many plants around. Liked the costume the most at around ep 23 (written in the instagram/facebook haha). It is funny how Ling Ling Qi uses the dreams for her own purposes. As she can see clearly that the other person in the dream looks exactly like her crush, Bo Hai, she tries to hug and kiss him and later on when she is not happy with real life Bo Hai, she avenges him in the dreams. After both of them know that they are actually meeting each other in the dreams, it is interesting how they choose to communicate what they cant say in real life in the dreams instead. Loved how the curtains open automatically when Bo Hai’s alarm sounds in the morning and he awakes from his sleep!

Enjoyed watching the chemistry and the development of relationship between Bo Hai and Ling Ling Qi. It is fun to watch them bicker a lot after they meet. Although Bo Hai is at the upperhand since he is Ling Ling Qi’s superior, Ling Ling Qi does not back down easily and sometimes win in the bickerings, making Bo Hai speechless. Felt that it is good that there is chance for Ling Ling Qi to pursue Bo Hai and then the other way round. There is smooth transition in the development of relationship. The relationship is built step by step gradually and it feels comfortable watching. Liked how they protect each other in the drama. While Bo Hai protects Ling Ling Qi in various scenerios in relation to company issues, Ling Ling Qi actually protects Bo Hai by giving him inspiration in face of company problems and calming his fears by protecting him in his dreams. Felt that the raining scene when Bo Hai secretly follows Ling Ling Qi to ensure her safety is romantic haha! He isnt sure if Ling Ling Qi can accept his past but still silently looks out for her (if I didnt remember wrongly). The scenes where Bo Hai dances the square/plaza dance (the older people like Ling Ling Qi’s mother dance) are cute haha! Liked their sweet interactions a lot when they are lovers. It is cringy at times when Ling Ling Qi is all out to pursue Bo Hai and I skipped some parts of it if it is too much for me haha. But I could bear with it most of the time. Could feel the pain in the hug when they finally meet each other again after the downfall of Bo Hai’s company and it felt like something was pulling at my heart. Liked how that scene was executed.

Liked the portrayals of friendships in this drama, Chen Mo+Bo Hai+Xin Yan and Ling Ling Qi+Bao Ni+Mo Nan. Bo Hai, Chen Mo and Xin Yan are founders of the company and they know each other quite well. All 3 are in good rapport and Chen Mo+Xin Yan follow Bo Hai’s lead well. When there are company problems, they can work together well and are able to settle them swiftly. A friendship is not perfect and there are conflicts sometimes due to difference in thinking. Liked how they are able to resolve the conflicts well. Liked how Ling Ling Qi+Bao Ni+Mo Nan share happiness and sorrow together. They look out for each other and encourage each other. Although there ends up to be unrequited love in the friendship of Ling Ling Qi+Bao Ni+Mo Nan, my sister liked how Mo Nan is loyal and didnt have a change of heart (even though Ling Ling Qi is taken). Mo Nan and Bao Ni continue to just be friends (sry for the spoiler).

  

Among the friendships, I especially liked the friendship between Chen Mo and Bo Hai as Chen Mo is Bo Hai’s best buddy and helps him share his burden and worries. Liked the scenes where they play mobile games together happily. It is fun to watch them teasing and threatening each other haha. Liked the lollipop couple Chen Mo and Xin Yan. It is funny how Chen Mo can cheer Xin Yan up by offering her lollipops which are different in shapes and sizes each time. My sister feels that Chen Mo is the only one that didnt make any wrong decision in the drama haha. Also liked the concept of family in this drama.

Loved how this drama is based on the floral industry. This drama reminds me that I want to learn flower language and arrangement one day haha. Liked how Bo Hai is good at floral art and how he thinks of floral designs as a way to heal and enlighten people. Found it good that he doesnt forget his original intention of doing floral art and opens a small online flower shop at night just to help people solve their worries or help them move on. The change of attitude of the staff towards the company and Bo Hai towards the end feels unreal. Doubted whether they are sincere or not.

Liked how there are many plot twists and good plot development due to various company problems caused by traitors which made me chase the drama. Liked how Bo Hai is smart and very good at dealing with those problems. Liked the acting by the cast. Liked Dilraba Dilmurat’s acting and she acted well in all the scenes ranging from crazy fangirl scenes, bickering scenes to loving scenes and sad scenes. Felt sad at the scene (at the bus stop) where she desperately tries to save Bo Hai’s poster when they are taken down or destroyed. Admired Ling Ling Qi’s fighting spirit. Became a fan of Deng Lun after this drama. Liked his acting. Liked how he portrayed the emotional struggle his character feels as his character brings along with him a “bomb” of potential colour blindness that may explode anytime (watch the drama to know why). Was touched when he shows how much the company and Ling Ling Qi mean to him. When he had to choose one, he chooses Ling Ling Qi first while trying his best to look for alternatives to save the other. Liked the character, Bo Hai, a lot. Deng Lun manages to add depth to the character by showing us different sides to his character for example, the playful and serious sides. Deng Lun doesnt look good-looking at certain angles+certain hairstyles and when he is acting angry haha but his overall appearance is still good. The ending theme song that he sang for this drama becomes my most favourite Chinese song for now haha.

Felt that the pace is quite good overall even though it is slow at times, especially when Ling Ling Qi strikes a deal with Mo Nan to leave Bo Hai so that the company can be saved. Didnt like Mo Nan as a character even though he causes quite a lot of conflicts in the drama which leads to some plot development. Although he realises his mistakes and helps Bo Hai get back the company towards the end, I just cant forgive what he did haha…

This is my most favourite drama for 2018 (not including I am not a robot and A Korean Odyssey as they are 2017-2018 dramas). It is the first time a China Drama actually wins Korean Dramas. One of the factors is fantasy which happens to be lacking in kdramas this year. Another factor is plot development and plot twists which is especially lacking in most romantic comedies and lacking in those fantasy kdramas I watched. The pace may be slower than kdramas since there are about 3 times the number of episodes but for this year the pace for most kdramas are not fast enough for me. It is also some time since I feel sad when I finished watching a drama.

Unexpected (2018) China Drama

Writing this review on behalf of my sister haha since she is busy. Sorry for people who dont know Chinese as there may not be English subtitles for this drama yet.

Unexpected 来到你的世界 (2018)

Cast: Austin Lin 林柏宏 as He Jie, Li Hao Fei 李浩菲 as Lu Zi Xing, Huang Jun Jie 黄俊捷 as Gong Cheng, Huang U.Lin 黄一琳 as Pei En Cai, 张津铭 as Su Zi Xun, 王迩忆璇 as Bai Lian

Episodes: 23

Recommendation: 9/10

My Own Review:

 

This drama seems to be specially made for my sister haha since she feels that life is tough and wants to meet the author that is controlling her life to change her life completely. 😀 She is comforted by this drama. This drama illustrates that no matter how uncontrollable life is, there will still be a day that you can change it as long as you have the direction and a good mentor.

Liked the fantasy elements in the drama. Like in W-2 worlds (kdrama), He Jie can make things appear or happen by drawing them. After He Jie’s mission in the comic world is completed, it is cool (and scary) how things start to break apart and disappear or fall to kill He Jie or Zi Xing since He Jie is supposed to return to his world and not stay in the comic world. My sister likes the flower He Jie draws specially for Zi Xing to signify their love. It is a flower only both of them know about.

Liked how He Jie is smart and how there are clever plot twists when he deals with situations his own way. It is fun to watch He Jie try his best to ship the lead couple and prevent Zi Xing from falling for the male lead (and commit evil deeds) even though things may not turn out the way he expected. It is interesting that He Jie can feel Zi Xing’s pain (since the real people will be connected to the comic characters their missions involve) and he always seems to be in more pain than her haha. Enjoyed watching how Zi Xing slowly falls for He Jie instead and how He Jie starts to develop feelings for his characters. My sister and I liked how He Jie resolves the conflict with Zi Xing when Zi Xing realises who he actually is. He manages to prove to her that the characters have their own thinking too and it is not always controllable by him. However, towards the end, I felt that the pace of the drama becomes slower and there are not enough emotion-provoking scenes for me.

        


The male lead and female lead in the comic

My sister likes Pei En Cai’s personality as she is happy and easy-going. Even when she suddenly becomes a poor family’s daughter or when she realises she is just part of a comic, it does not bother her much and she just accepts everything and takes them in stride. That is the personality He Jie gives her and it seems good to have such a personality in real life haha. Gong Chen seems to have it all but he is actually a lonely person that desires freedom. He Jie draws whatever he desires in real life for Gong Chen but did not know that he also draws in his own loneliness for him. It is funny that He Jie draws his own parents as Gong Chen’s parents and is surprised to see them when he goes into the comic world. My sister feels that Gong Chen is generous and loyal to his friend. When He Jie becomes Gong Chen’s friend+personal assistant, he stands up for He Jie and helps He Jie when He Jie needs it.

(The actor acting as) Gong Chen is good-looking haha. But He Jie is also good-looking haha… Although some people may like this couple more than the lead couple, my sister and I liked the lead couple more. Felt that the development of relationship is a little unreal  for the comic’s lead couple. Maybe the lack of evil deeds done by the evil female supporting character after He Jie’s appearance affects the development of their relationship. He Jie actually writes Zi Xing’s experiences and sufferings based on his own experiences which makes my sister think that they will definitely like each other since they are so alike and feels a bit doubtful about their relationship. To me, this is not really a problem since in real life, being similar does not necessarily mean you will fall in love with the person. It is just an added advantage in a relationship since they can understand each other better.

My sister doesnt like Zi Xun as he only aims to prove himself and show that what he did was right. This kind of people is pathetic even though they cant help it. As Bai Lian comes from the real world, both of them cant remain in the comic world after her mission is complete and one of them has to die. Bai Lian chooses to sacrifice herself. Zi Xun feels angry with himself as he does not want to lose what he has in the comic world and doesnt try to stop her. Before Bai Lian dies, He Jie gives her his magical pen as a present (if i didnt remember wrongly). Zi Xun later becomes evil and uses He Jie ‘s magical pen for evil deeds. The character Zi Xun does add some thriller and conflicts towards the end though. Liked how Bai Lian is a fan of He Jie and it is cute and sweet whenever she calls him Da Da or gives him the heart hand sign.

Special mentions to the character that often cooks chicken soup as she is always cheerful, loyal to her friends. My sister also likes the policeman that is in charge of logic in the comic. He fills the logic gap whenever it is needed. When He Jie comes to the comic world, he is a great help to He Jie, telling him how to leave the comic world, giving him the magical pen and releasing him from the police station when he was arrested a few times haha.

Sweet Combat China Drama

Sweet Combat 甜蜜暴击 (2018)

Cast: Lu Han as Ming Tian and Guan Xiaotong as Fang Yu, Ivy Shao as Song Xiao Mi, Li Meng Meng as Chen Ya Nan, Pei Tim as Sun Hao, Zhao Yue as Luo Guan Yan, Ding Cheng Xing as Fang Zhou, Tien Niu as Sun Hao’s mother, Zhao De Yin as Ya Nan’s father, Zhang Shuang Li as Fang Yu’s Grandfather

Episodes: 37

Recommendation: 7/10

My Own Review:

I did not know what to watch and went to Youtube to search for china dramas. I chanced upon this drama and decided to try out the drama. I feel that the plot is quite complete as there are quite a lot of up-and-downs and happenings and stories, which I think is good. However, these happenings in the drama make the plot not as sweet as the title of the drama and it brought me some misery at certain point of time, which is when Ming Tian and Fang Yu realised something which made them broke up. Also, I feel that the plot is considered slow pace for an impatient person like me but I did not know why I managed to finish watching this drama haha.

I like how this drama make me feel that all the character in the drama holds the same importance (no matter they are the lead characters or the supporting characters). It is also the first time I remember all the names of the character in the drama although I am not a name person. This may be because the writer of the drama gave each person quite a lot of screen time or may be because many of them get their other half (even if they may like someone else before that). I do not know the actual reason but when you watch it, you may possibly feel the same way as me.

sweet combat fang yu and ming tian  sweet combat sun hao song xiao mi  sweet combat luo guan yan chen yanan.jpg  sweet-combat-hao-ma.png

In this drama, I found two “BEST” people in dramas.

sweet combat fang yu fang zhou

One of the best is the best brother, which is Fang Zhou. Although he is younger than Fang Yu, he seems to be Fang Yu’s older brother and he is a very caring and considerate. This can be seen through many incidents. One incident is when Fang Yu wanted to chase her dreams to be a boxer by going to Zhengze University, he persuaded their grandfather to let Fang Yu go by saying that he will go to the company and help out in exchange for Fang Yu’s dream. Fang Zhou always cares for Fang Yu and supports Fang Yu in her dreams. How I wish I have a brother like that… But I think my older sister is already the best sister so I will not need such a brother. I wonder whether my sister will read this but nevermind. Haha… sometimes I am a bit too shy to say the good things about people so I usually write it hehe.

Another “best” is the best principal. I feel that the principal of Zhengze is the best as he is someone who can bend the rules when he think that it is right to do it. I am not going to give you an example since I feel that I have revealed too much plot in the drama. When you watch the drama, you will know what I mean haha.

Talking about best principal, I suddenly remember the director of the school being such a promise-keeper. That time when Ming Tian was in coma, he prayed for Ming Tian and said that if Ming Tian wakes up, he will go and do volunteer work abroad. He is such a promise keeper and I really admire such a person.

By the way, the drama songs are quite nice so do go and hear them.

Rush To The Dead Summer China Drama

rush to the dead summer

Rush to the Dead Summer 夏至未至 (2017)

Cast: Cheney Chen as Fu Xiaosi, Zheng Shuang as Li Xia, Bai Jingting as Lu ZhiAng

Episodes: 48

Recommendation: 6.5/10

My review: I did not finish watching this show because it started to get draggy when they graduated from high school and parted ways. So if there is any wrong information about the drama, I will like to apologise beforehand. Fu Xiaosi is not very good at expressing his love. Therefore, I find him too cold among many other cold characters in other shows. So if you are finding a melodrama, I do not think that it will be a suitable drama for you as it talks more about a normal school life and the difficulties a teenager will face. But the main reason why I stopped watching the drama is still due to the draggy and not interesting plot after their high school life. My favourite character in this drama is Lu ZhiAng. He is a very nice guy and always tries to be cheerie in front of others.
