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.

Watched Star Awards on the day that it was screened but I am not going to write a post on it as I am quite lazy haha and also it was not that different this year. Was a bit unhappy that Mind Matters didnt win any award but I kind of expected it since the awards dont usually go to where I want them to. I wonder when Ivan Lo will get the Young talent/Green Apple Award. He should have gotten it long ago. One of the highlights is Eric Chou (one of my sister’s favourite singers) singing 2 of his songs haha. Still sad about Aloysius Pang’s demise whenever I think about it. Never thought I would feel sad for a real person’s death if I am not close with the person. Saw Jerry Yan in Star Awards and Trump Card vs Trump Card 4 and I am getting curious about Meteor Garden 2001, even though I dont like to watch remakes. I happened to watch Boys over Flowers first. I am a fan of Vic Chou so I may try it out.

Just finished He is psychometric which is the first kdrama that I finished watching every episode after Are you human too. It is creepy and morbid but the fantasy is good and the cast acted well. I am in the process of scanning through My Poseidon which I feel that it is not good enough due to the bland plot revolving around the company. Watching because of Zhang Yun Long. Finished some of the China variety shows like Gao Neng Shao Nian Tuan and Trump Card vs Trump Card 4 with my sister. Finished Run for time 2 some time ago too. I watched Trump Card vs Trump Card 4 because of Hua Chen Yu, one of my most favourite China singers. Looking forward to Abyss kdrama which has fantasy haha… Put aside Singapore Drama Hello from the other side near 1/4 or 1/2 way. The starting and fantasy are good but there is a lack of interesting plot development after some time. See if I have the motivation to watch more and write a review about it later on. My sister and I feel that we wouldnt want to live in that other world if we were to die. That world is like continuing the life of a human and we have to continue caring about having money etc.

Will write a review soon when I have time. Long for you 2 first followed by He is psychometric. Thanks for the support!

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.
