Jin Han sweeps Zhao Li Ying off her feet in Our Glamorous Time’s first teaser

I’m sure I read that this story is about the business industry (boring!) but the first teaser makes it quite exciting with Jin Han literally sweeping Zhao Li Ying off her feet and stealing hugs and one kiss (so far). There are also quite a few cameos from other celebrities. Can you catch them all? Lol. Our Glamorous Time (你和我的倾城时光) is adapted from Ding Mo‘s novel and our male lead returns home from the military to help his family from bankruptcy and is involved in a guaranteed sweet love story with our strong yet feminine female lead.

Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 9: Episodes 65 – 67 Finale

It’s finally ending! I have never been this excited to see a drama end, to put me out of my misery. As Princess Agents broke another dramaland record of surpassing 40 Billion online views during its run, I’m equal parts happy and annoyed. Lol. Happy for the hard work the actors and crew put in but annoyed that now the writer and director would think the secret to a ratings hit is a combination of half-assed story line and inept directing. See, cdramaland needs less of those and more of a step-up in all directions.

Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 8: Episodes 57 – 64

One more week! I feel bad for Li Qin. She’s terribly wasted in here… combining all her screen time, she has less than Yuwen Huai… and he’s been dead!

Princess Agents: Episodes 38 – 41 Recap “Yan Xun’s Bloody Rebellion.”

Here we are at the second major arc in the story. Everyone makes a decision in these episodes, decisions that have deadly consequences. Decisions that they will have to live with for the rest of their lives. Besides the innocent civilians, nobody else is innocent, everybody has blood on their hands. And I have come to understand Yan Xun’s central role in the story; what happened because of him and due to him, sets the trajectories for the rest of the characters and story.

He’s the stimulus, kicking all the sleeping characters to fight for their faith. I suddenly feel enlightened about the novel as a whole.

Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 6: Episodes 41 – 48

I’m in the minority, I do not want a second season, with or without the original cast. After the hellish world the director and writer put me through with 60+ episodes, why would I want them to do it again? They will possibly add more unnecessary plot lines to make it another 60+ production, with Chu Qiao fainting every episode, she might have amnesia again in season 2. Lol. Filming up to the ice lake arc is to me sufficient, it’s a defining moment where Chu Qiao knows about Yue’s feelings, the rest of the chapters…. more battles and Yan Xun’s cruelty. I don’t need those, either!

Anyway, this will be a tough week to watch as everything descends into madness. Hold on to your seat!

Princess Agents: Episodes 35 – 37 Recap “Foxy Prince’s Arrival.”

He’s here! He’s here! Our foxy Prince is here! Like a burst of fresh air. With everyone faces hanging on doom and gloom, it’s nice to see some smiles around. Why I adore Xiao Che so much in the novel: he’s a delightful mix of pre-massacre Yan Xun with his abundance of sunshine and Yue’s slyness and intelligence. Like the best candy in the world! ❤

My snarky side came today so memes are here. Thanks Maymay who helped with these recaps!
