Dramas

I like asian dramas.  A lot.  :)  I am Chinese, so watching Taiwanese and Mainland dramas is easier for me because I don’t have to rely solely on the subtitles (although I’m not exactly fluent, but thanks to watching dramas, my Chinese is pretty good).  I only recently started watching Korean dramas because I had this stubborn issue with watching them.  I had the mindset that I was watching TW and C-dramas to better my Chinese vocabulary, but that if I watched Korean dramas then it really would be wasted time.  However, a few of my friends convinced me to try one, Secret Garden, and it was quite good, and so I looked for more, and whataya know?  There are quite a few good ones.  :)

So: this post will be updated regularly because I will be posting what dramas I am currently watching.

If you decide to check some of them out, then enjoy!

    There’s a movie length “prequel” to the TW series Blacki & White. Caught it in Taiwan last year. Worth a look if you haven’t seen it. Mark Zhao stars, with just about everyone else in it except Vic Zhou (after his falling out with the director) and Ivy Chen.
    Love your reviews.

    • lalaladdy says:

      oohhh, yeah i saw posters for it while i was in china this summer! i had been hesitant to watch it because it didn’t have vic zhou, since vic zhou and mark chao’s bromance was dabestttt. but i will watch it, thank you for suggesting it!
      and aahhh i feel so guilty though because i haven’t been writing reviews for dramas lately at all…. but i think i’m going to try to go back towards doing drama reviews or recaps or w/e after second semester starts🙂 thank you so much!
      oh and also, if you like mark chao, he was in a movie this summer that i really liked, called Caught in the Web, 搜索. if you haven’t seen it you should check it out!🙂

      • vgag says:

        Thanks for the suggestion about Mark’s film. Will definitely look out for it. I totally agree about the bromance between the leads of the original Black & White. But I decided to go and see the film prequel Dawn of Assault (which I reviewed on Neveridol) while we were still in Taipei. It was fun to see it up on the big screen at Vieshow near Taipei101.
        Yea, I hope you do return to reviewing dramas. I really enjoy your comments.

    Oh my you must try Bridal Mask!(: It is epic and I really am at a loss of words to describe it. If I had to describe it in a few words: awesome, heroic, suspenseful, touching. You should really watch it, then write a review on it.😀

    • lalaladdy says:

      ahh, then i’ll make sure to add that to my list of must watch dramas then! ahh, it’s forever getting longer ahahah🙂 eeeep i’ll try! i’m counting on second semester hehe ^^ thank you for recommending it!

      • icecreamgrl44 says:
