Can we call Xing Zhao Lin the YA Sniper? Young Actresses Sniper. He’s literally making rounds with all the adorable actresses! Standing In The Time is another modern romance where our leads find themselves led away from their dream jobs and how they conquer what life throws at them and make the best of it. She dreams of becoming a fashion editor but is now under the proofreading department, while he wants to become a writer but is now a model. Our two lost souls meet at the same company and provide comfort and support as they strive forward their dreams.
As October comes to a close, so does Season 2 of Let’s Shake It. Hope you guys enjoyed these recaps and that it helped you to follow along with the show while you wait for subs. Let us know what you thought of the series and the finale. Do you want to see a third season or was this a good end to the story? Are you following Zheng Yecheng and An Yuexi in their new series (An Oriental Odyssey and Granting You a Dreamlike Life)?
For one last time, join Enid Bee and Linja as we post the final recaps for Let’s Shake It: Trouble on Planet Duo.
Get your tissues handy. We finally get to the Tang Dynasty, but only after a literally gut-wrenching scene. And now there are two Tang Qing Feng’s for Abu to deal with, but she doesn’t know which one is really her’s. We also finally meet Tang Qing Feng’s mom and see that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. And there are more familiar faces as well.
We’re at the halfway mark now: Abu gets a sister, Tang Qing Feng gets a kiss…from himself, Xiao Ba gets a heart, Duo Miao Miao gets to babysit his mom and we get to wonder, “The series is half way over. When do we finally get to jump to the Tang Dynasty?”
Linja saves the day!! My “Let’s Shake It” fansub partner and all around awesome person, Linja, helped me out soooo much with these recaps. Her language skills are much better than mine so please thank her in the comments as I think I would have needed another week to translate some of the dialogue in about half the scenes to understand everything that was going on. Thanks to her, though, you don’t have to wait for me to do that.
And because Photobucket is down, I’ve had to get a bit creative using YouTube and tried to use Flickr to illustrate the recaps so you wouldn’t have to wait any longer. Hopefully without the pictures, you can still enjoy the recaps. (UPDATE: Photobucket is back up!)
In these five episodes we’ve got giant wine glasses, Tang Qing Feng and the Princess get engaged, the assassin robot finally appears, we find out Dark TQF’s name, Abu dies and now Enid has second lead syndrome. Let’s begin the second half of Week 2!
Let’s Shake It was the first C-drama I ever watched without benefit of English subtitles (and after only six months of studying Mandarin) and I fell in love with the show right away. I’m so excited to get to see the second season of this romantic comedy and, since I watched the first season without translations and managed to follow it along pretty well, I decided I’d recap the second season without subs for those fans out there who want to know what happens and don’t want to have to wait for subs. Please let me know in the comments what you think about the series and what you are enjoying or wishing was better.
So bring on the Scavenger assassins, the chili peppers, the bricks and more braised pork galore. Let’s begin Week 01 of Let’s Shake It: Trouble on Planet Duo!
(Please note that I’m not fluent in Mandarin so apologies now for any mistranslations.)
