Love is in the air

Recent taiwan/China idol dramas are focusing very much on romance…starting from P.S man to Summer’s Desire and Scent of love. Summer’s Desire versus Scent of love(since both are in episode 4 now), and the former is for audience with a strong taste of sad story. Scent of love is more lighthearted and a little comedian. Acting wise, Summer’s Desire is much stronger compared to Scent of love. Target audience for both shows seemed to be women, given how the plot unfolds for both. I would say Summer’s Desire is more matured in terms of storyline, and the actors can bring you in. While Scent of love seemed a little weak. Nonetheless, looking at stronger leads, them doing well is no surprise, but chances for younger actors come very little, and of course when there’s the opportunity, newbies normally grabbed hold of it rather than wait for a good one least the audience forgets them. Personally I would put them on par, since the ending of the drama is important too.

    This Taiwan drama titled Year of the rain can be finished in a day. There’s only 6 episodes. The storyline is realistically enough. Since natural disasters always happened, and casualties is a norm. Those who remained, their psychological problem is a hurdle to overcome. Short and Simple drama. More for 15++ AND ABOVE in order to truly appreciate this show. Casts wise I find them refreshing, especially the leads.

    Calling Big star starring MIke He and Charlene Choi is finally here. Forget about the divorce of Charlene Choi, just watch this show since she is single already. Her effort in trying to speak mandarin instead of cantonese is encouragable. At least she proves that she is putting her best effort. Think I am dropping P.S Man. NO, it’s confirmed. Xiao Xiao Bin’s role is so limited. Really prefers he’s work in Autumn Concerto. Also, Rice Family is something I might watched. Since there’s Fang Fang Jie the veteran, and the conversation so far between her and her daughter-in-law is amusing.

    P.s Man:

    Likely to end up on my drop list…since I would really want to see Blue trying on a lively role, then his usual cool dude roles. If i Perservere, likelihood to be due to xiao xiao bin.

    Down with love:

    xiao xiao bin’s role here is pretty limited, so i might again drop this. On the other hand, Ella and Jerry’s pair up wasn’t bad…and there’s pretty good comments about this drama, due to leakage on the net, many have watched this before the TV station has finish playing it.

    Korea dramas:

    Cinderella sister: Yes. Definitely sticking to this, episode 1 and 2 has managed to capture my attention.

    A man called god: Hmmm….action filled. REVENGEFUL. But kind of difficult to source for it, especially the new episodes…

    Hero: Wanted to start on this, maybe after cinderella’s sister.
