First Impression: The Crowned Clown Episodes 1 – 8 “Yeo Jin Goo vs Yeo Jin Goo.”

Hope everyone had a great new year! My parents decided to spend New Year in California, far, far away from their kids and home. It was really quiet without my mom’s laughter. So I decided to watch a Korean drama…. The Crowned Clown with Yeo Jin Goo playing a crazy King who is paranoid of his enemies and so he finds a clown who looks exactly like himself and places him on the throne. Who would have thought Yeo Jin Goo will one day steals his own thunder. Lol. What a powerhouse actor he is and I sat there marathoning the first half of the series, shocked at the ending of episode 8!

First Impression: What do you think of The Legends with Bai Lu and Xu Kai?

Somebody be a dear and tell me if this is worth watching? The shallow in me is gobbling up the prettiness, reminds me of The Legends of Zu.

The Legends (招摇) is adapted from the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang starring new faces such as Bai Lu (King is Not Easy) and Xu Kai (Zhao Ge) as leads. Bai Lu plays Wan Lu Men’s Sect Master who is in pursuit of the legendary Wan Jun Sword left behind by the Demon Lord but she’s tricked by our hero which leads her into a precarious situation. Five years later (??!), she returns to her sect to get back her position but our hero has taken over the sect. He’s also the Demon Lord’s son disguised as a sect disciple to scheme her out of her position five years ago. She then lures him into another journey to get another sword (LOL) with the help of a rising wulin star (Dai Xu) but as it turns out, she gets kidnapped by her conspirator and the hero has to rescue her. Why does this sound so funny? Or am I reading this wrong? XD

First Impression: What do you think of The Legend of Hao Lan with Wu Jin Yan and Mao Zi Jun?

Palace intrigues in the hands of Yu Zheng!

The Legend of Hao Lan is based on the life story of Queen Dowager Zhao, mother of Qin Shi Huang, first emperor of a unified China in 221 BC. According to the drama synopsis, our heroine was born into a prominent Zhao family but is targeted by her stepmother and loses everything. She’s bought by Lü Buwei (Nie Yuan) who then gifts her to Prince Yiren (Mao Zi Jun, yay! leading!), later King Zhuangxiang of Qin, who is held as a political hostage in the Kingdom of Zhao. The fight for power and love begins~

I saw some clips on youtube and they really torture Jin Yan to no end. O_O!

First Impression: What do you think of I’ll Never Let You Go (Legend of Huo Buo) with Ariel Lin and Zhang Bin Bin?

Zhang Bin Bin is back on our screen! With the adorable Ariel Lin no less! But Juli is right in her observation that the whole vibe of this drama is similar to Prince of Lan Ling with her and Feng Shao Feng in 2013.

Hoping that it’s good!

First Impression: What do you think of Our Glamourous Time with Zhao Li Ying and Jin Han?

The new music video by Kym makes this drama look like it’s made for die-hard fans of Li Ying who has been starved of her OTP scenes in recent dramas because it’s loaded with sweet moments between her and Jin Han. Lol. He’s quite tall around her too so when he pulls her in for a hug, I just melt. Of course, all based on a 4-minute music video.

I want to be swooned, show, ya hear me?!

First Impression: What do you think of Hi, I’m Saori with Zheng Shuang and God Itthipat Thanit?

I thought this was simply a rom-com drama but Zheng Shuang is actually playing a robot who’s a nanny/assistant to an arrogant celebrity, played by Thai Actor God Itthipat Thanit. A love story between a robot and a human….we have seen plenty of those in Kdramaland this year. Lol. But of course this was filmed waaaaay earlier and released today.
