Chinese Remake of Answer Me 1988 casts Zeng Qi and Kou Zhen Yu

There are three series to the Answer Me franchise and yet they picked Answer Me 1988, perhaps the most infuriating one of the three to remake! Answer Me 1988 revolves around five friends and their families, growing up in the 1980s.

Our heroine is the only girl of the group and finds herself stuck between the bromance of two other friends. Hehe.

– remembers the heartbreak and frustration –

NOT CUTE!

Thai Remake of You Who Came From the Stars casts Nadech Kugimiya and Matt Peranee

Ah, Kim Hubby’s drama, You Who Came From the Stars, gets a Thai Adaptation, securing actor Nadech Kugimiya and Matt Peranee in the leading roles.

Ruler–Master of the Mask: Episodes 1 – 8 First Impression “Puppy vs Wolf.”

Wow. This is unexpected. I thought it would be, yunno, light and fluffy in the beginning and then heavy and angsty towards the end. Nope! No siree! The heaviest first four episodes (divided into 8 parts of 30min each, silly) ever. The running theme is this: “You have a dad?” *kills* “You have one too?” *stabs* “Who’s next?”

Oh, I have a feeling there are more…
