2014 and 2015: Where you should have wasted time, and where you will

2014 was an odd, odd year. And I use that in a way that makes litotes stand up and clap in awe. Many many bad things happened. Many weird things happened.

And then it got weirder.

I didn’t watch a single Korean or Japanese drama past the first episode. None. Now this may not seem like an extraordinary event to you, but as a person who has religiously watched dramas ever since Meteor Garden aired (at the grand old age of 9, folks), I am sure that the end of the world is soon to come. And I’m convinced, that unless I find a good drama to watch in 2015, imma be struck by lightening. And I know ya’ll think I’m joking but I get jumpy when hear the crackle of static from my sweater, so let’s hope something good comes up soon.

Hihihihihi everyone ^u^ I’m jumping aboard the AVV ship to provide you with moar recaps and moar reviews and moar what-have-yous~ I’m going to start with a small, currently airing series, a Taiwanese drama called Just You (就是要你愛上我lit. Just want you to love me) starring some fluffy puppies called Aaron Yan and Puff Guo.

I picked this project for a few reasons: It’s short (10 episodes), cute, with a engaging storyline (unless the writer gets whacked later on in the show), and most importantly, the chemistry between Aaron and Puff is fireworksworthy (if that isn’t a word, I’m inventing it now for them~). Aaron plays the boss from… a very rich, good-looking hell: suffering from OCD, no emotions, snarkiness, and a sad backstory, while Puff plays the perky employee who unwittingly ends up as roomies with him, and decides that the most expedient way to make him loosen up is to make him fall in love with her.
