Run, Brother: Episode 1 “Having fun.”

After SBS sold the rights to China, they have a hand in co-producing the Chinese version of Running Man, Run Brother (aka Hurry Up, Brother!), with television broadcast channel, Zhejiang Television. The first episode aired on October 10th. I feel the need to state this clearly because reading the unpleasant comments on youtube was not fun. Let’s practice being kind and understanding before throwing out careless and hurtful words, shall we?

Ariel Lin shimmers with happiness on her engagement day

My mom is flabbergasted. She still can’t believe the “thick-headed” girl in It Started with a Kiss has a man that is not Joe Cheng. You know she loves and kisses the floor that drama walks on right? (Unlike me.) Of all days of the year, she picks her birthday to hold the wedding. Won’t those two events clash in the future? He only needs to buy her one present then? Lol.

Aim High: Episode 1 “Never stop dreaming.”

And that ladies and gentlemen, is the lesson for today! Never let anyone rain on your dreams and definitely, never let anyone tell you to stop dreaming! :)

SETTV’s latest offering on Fridays gives us Aim High, (another) story following (another) group of friends as they live, dream, and struggle in today’s brutal working society. You sense my skeptical attitude yet? At the end of the hour, I liked what I saw in these kids adults. The name brings me back to my own high school moments, how we gathered around the teacher’s desk and guessed who scored the highest on the weekly calculus test (such nerds we were!), and one of my friends would say, “Aim high, so when you fall, you fall within your true range.” The response he always got was, “Shut up!”

Now that I think about his quote, I snicker, that puny-sized wise kid.

Nobunaga Concerto: Episode 2 “Wearing a mask.”

Not as funny as the first episode but we do get a lot more background info about the key players. It remains light-hearted and the music makes me swoon like a mad girl. It’s gorgeous! I need those scores now!

Wallace Huo duets with Della Ding at her Beijing Concert

Aww!! I love friendship moments outside of filming projects. The princess of drama theme songs in recent years, Della Ding, recorded the themesong for Perfect Couple with Wallace Huo earlier this year, and the two have become good friends since then. Last night, he appeared at her Live Concert in Beijing and performed “Good Times” in a perfectly fitted navy suit.

In other news, why don’t pop groups ever come to the East Coast to perform?!! I’m dying to attend a concert!

49th Golden Bell Awards Results (2014)

Now I remember why I don’t do award shows post as often as I would like. It takes forever to compile images! Beside celebrating the accomplishments of Taiwanese dramas this year, the highlight is the sea of pretty people showing up in expensive gowns and jewelries. BUT! A lot of gray and metallic shades today…

What’s going on peeps? We no like colors anymore?

Gao Yuan Yuan, a bride in both real and reel weddings

Yep, the luckiest woman alive, Gao Yuan Yuan, also retires from single-hood this year. She has a successful career, she’s gorgeous to look at, she stars alongside gorgeous men, and in real life, she’s marrying Mark Zhao in November (!!), around the same time as the premiere of her movie, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart 2. The ironic title. Lol. They’ve already registered their marriage in June and what’s left is the official wedding ceremony. Aw.

Nobunaga Concerto: Episode 1 “A hero who runs away.”

Firstly, let’s get the obvious aging itch off of our chest. Shun, man. Next time you receive a script that calls for a teen role, hand the script to me. Lol. I’d find an age-appropriate Japanese actor to take the part and spare you the ongoing laughs by your peers (I’m seeing Nino’s tiny fingers pointing.) :D Anyway, now that we are done with the complaint, I have to say I enjoyed the premiere episode of Nobunaga Concerto, a drama adaptation of the manga series, “Nobunaga Kontseruto” by Ayumi Ishii. I found myself laughing hysterically in certain scenes and I went in NOT expecting it to be funny at all.
