If There is Still Time Left (如果还有时间) stars Li Lan Di and Lin Yi in a heart-breaking romance. Some sources say it’s adapted from 2014’s Japanese drama Boku no Ita Jikan aka The Hours of My Life (僕のいた時間) with Miura Haruma and Tabe Mikako. Our leads are both university students awaiting for their graduation. The two young people constantly face difficulties as they transition into the working population but eventually grow to understand and develop feelings for each other. When everything seems fine and smooth sailing, our hero is met with a fatal diagnosis…he has Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). With the average life expectancy between 2-5 years, our hero struggles with the sudden blow. With the love, support, and encouragement from friends and families, he’s able to look ahead and live life to the fullest till the end.
The first two episodes are just a crappy beginning, but afterwards it really does improve! I really did watch until episode 10! >_< lol Thus, I have made the decision to rush the drama recap out to prove it! I could tell that many were vomiting blood previously. (Well I was too lol) This next episode will focus on their first day of gender switching, with many hilarious moments and our first insight into our OTP!
Imagine my excitement when the fluffy first episodes of Proud of Love first came out. I’m usually not into gender switching but I was totally reading the novel translation from hui3r before there was even any drama news and it was pretty comedic – a very light read. I’ve been on drama block for so long, from busyness and other ‘official’ matters it’s been good to have a break 😛 even if it is temporary. A ton of things happen even if the plot line so far does have a lot of loopholes. Yerp. Guess who proposes? And so early into the drama…?
With the ending of Just One Smile Is Very Alluring (Love O2O), I have heard of ya’ll cries for another fluffy drama! Look no more! I wrote about it in April and now we have tons of promos and a release date! Romantic comedy, Proud of Love, is the drama adaptation of Don’t Be So Proud (别那么骄傲), a novel written by Sui Hou Zhu (随侯珠). Our OTP is played by Vivian Sung (Our Times) and Tong Meng Shi (Grade One) in a body-swap comedy between a snappy female dance major and a cold, aloof male student of the University next door. Hijinks ensue when they find themselves trapped in each other’s body after a freak accident during a vacation between their two group of friends. What’s entertaining is the setup: our heroine thoroughly enjoys the swap since she gets to be close to her crush, who dorms with several other guys, including the host body she’s in. HEE. On the other hand, our hero jumps and frets at her every move to take advantage of the situations they are put in. HAHAHA.
Oh. I like the sound of this. Might be just the drama to pique a good amount of interest. And of course, I really like Vivian Sung since her heartfelt performance in Our Times. Playing her male lead is a new face, one that we have seen before in variety show, Grade One, and recently as a minor character in Li Yi Feng’s The Legend of Chusen. He’s Tong Meng Shi. Don’t Be So Proud (别那么骄傲) is a novel written by Sui Hou Zhu (随侯珠) and it’s a soul-swapping of our OTP. The idea isn’t new and we have had a few dramas with the same premise, the most popular being Kdrama Secret Garden. Our female lead’s a dance major with a gluttony for food while he’s a top, aloof student at the University next door. During a vacation between the two group of friends, they end up swapping souls when she falls in the water and he’s struck by lightning. What I like in this scenario is she actually enjoys the swap – relishing in his body while he gapes in horror at the way she treats his masculine self – stomping of feet like a little girl. LOL! Plus, the boy she likes for a long time is his roommate (along with two other entertaining roommates)!
