Happy Weekend! B)
Sorry for the lack of updates, so here is a huge batch of news! Productions that are stingy and only released a poster didn’t make it into this post. Lol. 😀
Another remake! A popular Kdrama that aired in 2005! I don’t think I have watched this one before but I remember the craze Lee Jun Ki generated from it. Lol.
Synopsis from Wiki: A native of Jeju Island, Joo Yoo-rin lives with her father, who is addicted to gambling. Because of her father’s debts, Yoo-rin has become particularly skilled at lying and grifting. When her father escapes the island to hide from his debtors, Yoo-rin is determined to support herself and clear up the debts. One day, she meets Seol Gong-chan, the sole heir to the L’Avenue Hotel fortune.
To grant his grandfather’s dying wish, Gong-chan employs Yoo-rin to act as his grandfather’s long-lost granddaughter. Offering a monthly salary plus a bonus, he asks her to do what she does best—to put on an act. Not wishing to lie to a dying man, yet desperate for the money, Yoo-rin takes the offer and starts playing the long-lost granddaughter. Through a strange twist of fate, however, finding his granddaughter makes the grandfather so happy that he makes a complete recovery. Since they have claimed to be cousins, Gong-chan and Yoo-rin are forced to live together under one roof, and as time passes, the attraction between them grows. However, love is forbidden for these two, who must pass as cousins…

Airing 4/26 ~
Just a couple of new pieces here and there this past week.
At first it was five dramas, then 6, 7, 8, and now this post has 11 dramas for this week alone. Oh my gosh, China! Too many!
My Little Happiness (我的小确幸) is adapted from the novel written by Dong Ben Xi Gu and stars Xing Fei and Tang Xiao Tian as childhood friends who are reunited as adults. Our heroine was sent to study abroad by her mother, hoping she would settle in the states. But she sneaks back home and becomes a legal intern. She meets old friend who is now a successful surgeon but doesn’t recognize him at first. They become neighbors (him being the landlord to boot) and the battle of wits continue between the two. Maybe she’s a legal consult for the hospital so that’s why they work together a lot? Lol.
You can read the translated novel @ Illanovels.
The Moon Brightens For You (明月曾照江东寒) is a wuxia drama adapted from the novel written by Ding Mo. She’s paired up with Alan Yu Meng Long. It follows the growth of our female lead who leaves the protective arms of her parents to join jianghu and the male lead who is on a revenge mission for his clan, but he hides his motives behind a pretty and sickly appearance of a playboy. xD
