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)

But after giving the show some… Continue reading Dramas: Fifteen Years Waiting for Migratory Birds
