Random thoughts 10

Currently, there is a kdrama drought even though my friend is enjoying her time watching The Last Empress. Or maybe there is a serious kdrama drought since Are you human too? My sister, as usual, is still having some China Dramas to watch. Dont know how she find so many China Dramas haha…

I am now spending some of my drama time watching the latest Running Man episodes and China variety shows like Run for time and Who’s the murderer. I watched until ep 8 for Clean with passion for now which is not too bad but probably not enough tension or interesting plot development to keep me going. I chased Memories of the Alhambra until episode 6 then the pace dropped quite a lot and I scanned through it. The light in your eyes doesnt seem to be going in the direction I wished it will. Liked the acting by Nam Joo Hyuk and Han Ji Min, and the fantasy. Liked Park Sun Ho’s acting in The Best Chicken but not really attracted to the plot haha. Watched 2 episodes of The Crowned Clown because of Yeo Jin Goo but the plot doesnt attract me. Dropped The Last Empress after the first episode. Thought there will be some fantasy involved but there isnt and it is more of a “high intensity” revenge story.

My sister and I just finished watching Long for you 2 China Drama together and it is considered good but I have to go back and watch the first few episodes since she watched those without me. Liked the fantasy in it! Watched episodes 11-14 for Emperors and me. The funny thing about this drama is that whenever the female lead time-travels to a historical time period, she brings back the emperor of that time period to the modern times. But this drama is a bit too brain-cracking for me and I dont feel like watching the scenes where the emperors try to get used to their new environment and fit into the modern times so I may not watch it. My sister and I started on Singapore Drama Hello from the other side as it has fantasy involved, even though it may be a bit morbid.

Hope I will get some motivation to write some reviews haha.

Singapore Drama Review 3 wishes 三个愿望

3 wishes (2014) 三个愿望

Genre: Mystery, Romance, Fantasy, Family, Comedy

Enjoyment: 10/10  Pace: 8/10

starring Thomas Ong 王沺裁 as Zhao Yaozong, Huang Biren 黄碧仁 as Yaozong’s wife (Shanmei) , Shane Pow 包勋评as Zhao Youting, Julie Tan 陈欣淇 as Zhao Xiaomin, Tan Junsheng 陈俊生 as Zhao Chenglong/ Xiaolong, Zhu Houren 朱厚任 as Yaozong’s father, Jin Yinji 金银姬as Yaozong’s mother, Yao Wenlong 姚玟隆 as Zhao Yaozu, Apple Hong 洪乙心 as Yaozu’s wife, Hayley Woo as Winnie.

It makes me wonder if the old woman comes for the better or worse of the family. If she did not come and give them wishes, Shanmei would have died of cancer and Xiaomin would have suffocated to death. However, with the temptation of making more wishes, Xiaomin bears the consequence which makes her lose her legs, hindering her from achieving her dream to become a singer. Besides that, Yaozong may die as the old woman is waiting eagerly to take his life after he makes the 3 wishes (after 1st 3 wishes). Yaozong’s father sustains serious injuries while getting into a fight with his unfilial son, Yaozu, who plans with his wife and seeks every opportunity to steal the wishing coin to become rich.

It is funny whenever Shanmei forces the children to say the phrase “我能,我行,我可以。”( Yes, I can do it!) with her at the starting part of the drama. She just had a thorough medical check-up which shows that she has cancer. Because of that, she starts to be more strict on her children and wants them to do housework or be independent. It is ironic that she believes in real actions with planning and not wishes yet she makes Yaozong make the first wish (a chance to go back to the stable to work). The gesture Yaozong uses to throw the coin out when making a wish is cool! Shanmei is a respectable parent to me. When her daughter loses her legs, Shanmei even travels around in a wheelchair to understand her pain and helps her pull herself together to start life anew. In addition, she helps Xiaomin get an autograph from her favourite celebrity and helps Xiaolong with his homework all the time.

I find Yaozu’s wife very evil. She uses all means to get the wishing coin even kidnapping Xiaolong when she is pregnant and faking pregnancy. She also makes Youting the scapegoat when selling illegal goods for her benefit. When Yaozu’s parents go to their house, she does not give them a comfortable environment in order to make them leave fast. It is ridiculous that Xiaolong gets 270 for Primary School Leaving Examinations and still says that many people get the same marks as him. Haha. Probably it is not out of 300… Wishes may seem like a taboo in this drama but as long as we work hard and have a clear conscience, we can still celebrate sweet success.

When Xiaomin loses her legs, she blames her father and wants to make another wish. I guess when there is an easy way out, people tend to choose it rather than overcome the challenge directly. If it is me, I would rather make a wish to prevent losing my family members than facing reality. I feel sorry for her at first but am glad that she manages to overcome it and can walk normally with the prosthetic legs. Her first boyfriend’s ending turns out to be quite unexpected…It is funny when Yaozong’s mother acts like she wants to run away from home and waits for her grandchildren to hold her back yet Xiaolong will choose that moment to give her her ezlink card for transportation.
