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)

Drama Review: With You (最好的我们)

When I last posted, I was in the middle of (attempting to do) quick episode recaps while I watched Bu Liang Ren. Unfortunately, I quickly got bored/annoyed with that show and decided to take a break to watch With You (最好的我们), another highly-rated school/youth drama in China. With You is the best type of slice-of-life, school/youth… Continue reading Drama Review: With You (最好的我们)

Meaning I’ve started to look for dramas that don’t have a lot of English information on them, but nevertheless exist.

Overall, a large bag of mixed feelings with this one.… Continue reading Drama Review: Shuttle Love Millennium

Dramas: Fifteen Years Waiting for Migratory Birds

Oops, I binge-watched another drama. I was a bit skeptical when I started watching Fifteen Years Waiting for Migratory Birds (wow, what a mouthful, I’ll just call it Fifteen Years from here on out), since the acting seemed a bit forced and the present-day drama that you’re thrown into seems so melodramatic. But after giving the show some… Continue reading Dramas: Fifteen Years Waiting for Migratory Birds

Dramas: Pleasantly Surprised

Food! I love food, and food and cuteness were Pleasantly Surprised (aka Love Myself or You?) strong points. I really liked this one despite the ups and downs. Although it got very melodramatic, each dramatic plot arc never carried on for too long and was also resolved within an episode or two. A great drama for those… Continue reading Dramas: Pleasantly Surprised
