Reset (开端) is based on the mystery-thriller novel written by Qi Dao Jun. It follows a group of people on a bus with an eventual explosion happening. Every passenger on the bus has their own story, difficulties as they board the bus of doom (my translation). As our two leading characters experience life, trauma, and death together, they begin to appreciate the meaning of life. But before they can meaningfully act on their self-growth, they must find out the truth and break the cycle of time to stop the explosion.

Bai Jing Ting has been picking good projects lately and I like what I see of Miss Zhao in The Blessed Girl.
The Shadow (如月) is adapted from the novel written by Ni Luo, who is also the author for Wu Xin: The Monster Killer. Much to fans’ happiness, Gao Wei Guang is finally going to portray a vampire. Lol. A thousand years old vampire who is a famous business man. He angers the Japanese during a transaction and they send a group of assassins after him. During the chase, he’s rescued by our blind female lead (played by Ouyang Nana) and her friend (played by Dong Si Cheng). To repay her kindness, he searches for her and discovers her bad family situation, prompting his concern and protectiveness over her. The people behind the assassination join hand with a common enemy of his and promise to uncover the truth behind our male lead. What is it? That he likes blood? You want to volunteer your neck? I’m sure it will be classy – served in a wine cup. 😉
I was initially excited because Vengo will make a beautiful chiseled vampire, but he’s almost double the age of Nana. o.o Ottokee!
So sudden. Came home from work and heard/read my friend scream-text that her love (XZ) is returning to screen. Lol.
Ace Troops (王牌部队) is your men-and-women-in-uniform drama to end the year with. There’s a love triangle with Huang Jing Yu, Xiao Zhan, and Zhong Chu Xi, but it is resolved eventually, with each of them finding their love and responsibilities in the army, while striving to create a better team.
Are you ready to watch this story for the Xth time? 🤭 After a year of wait (they dropped the first trailer this time last year), the latest drama adaptation of manga Hana Yori Dango is here. Female lead is from a poor family who gets accepted into a rich prestigious school out of luck. She bumps head with the leader of F4, a group formed by the four richest families. They bully and leave a wake of unhappy souls around until our heroine confronts the leader, making him smitten with her audacious attitude while she has eyes for his quiet best friend.

As everyone renovates various buildings, they experience growth and a sense of belonging.
Sorry for the lack of updates, I’m feeling quite unmotivated these days. Is it the holidays mood of wanting to laze around? >.<”
Well, well, well. Joining the team of psychologists who are running amok (Yang Zi in Psychologist, Zhao Li Ying in Who is the Murderer) in cdramaland is Gong Jun in Dream Garden (沉睡花园). Lol. Our heroine is a popular blogger who gives out relationship advice to her readers. Hoping to improve her ability to analyze emotional problems, she applies to be an assistant to a psychologist (our hero), the same man who irritated her in a prior encounter.
