Drama Review: To Be With You (最佳女配)

To Be With You is simultaneously not what I expected, but also better than what I thought it would be. After watching the first episode of To Be With You, I was excited to see where this drama would go, but my expectations were quickly lowered by the second episode, which reached Meteor Garden/Moon River levels of ridiculous.… Continue reading Drama Review: To Be With You (最佳女配)

Quick Recap: Shuttle Love Millennium (Ep. 14)

This episode is full of cute fluff, a change from the heavier plot content and tears of the previous few episodes. It’s a nice change, and something that the drama does very well. Recap While Zhi Gang and Wang Lin discuss the universe, we see that Qi Long has been saved by one of Wang’s… Continue reading Quick Recap: Shuttle Love Millennium (Ep. 14)
