Can see why they’re so happy. Each has 3 dramas on the list. Chusen with them together tops the list. Lol. Ratings is such a weird concept. We might find a drama so frustrating and rage-inducing, and yet we still tune in, contributing to the enormous view count. WHYYYYYYY?
Can you believe our last movie date was in 2014?! This poor feature being forgotten and shoved in the last bunk of this ship. Let’s bring it back for our Saturday’s movie night! Feel free to drop movie suggestions through here or our twitter and if we can find quality sources, we’ll share it here. If you would like to review any movies, also let us know! It’s a one-time commitment to share your opinion!
The Vietnamese adaptation of Gu Man’s novel, Just One Smile is Very Alluring, is called Love At 1st Sight. I think it’s always nice to see what different directors choose to do with their budget and actors to bring the characters and story to life. The teasers look really cute but don’t provide anything about the gaming world so I hope they are saving the best for last!
This fanmade music video is so cute! Saw it floating around on weibo and decided to rip it since it’s very well-made and the scenes are stitched together acutely on point! It features two of Gu Man‘s well-beloved characters, Shan Shan from Boss & Me and Xiao Nao from Just One Smile is Very Alluring (Love O2O). From what I heard in our chat-box neighborhood, Shan Shan does idolize Da Shen in the game. But a cameo from the pair would make things very, very awkward. Lol.
Xiao Nai really doesn’t fool around when it comes to work and dating. He is actually really sly here, courting Wei Wei in-game and then delivering the final kill in real life. Da Shen is Da Shen indeed.
This first episode is a delight to watch and to recap. I think the show nailed the execution and improved the plot. The characters feel alive instead of caricatures of themselves, which the show owed it to the original writer Gu Man also being the scriptwriter. If you like the book, I think you will enjoy this adaptation.
