Yay! Some Taiwanese dramas to look forward to with my favorite leading men! Both dramas have a common theme: the fate of being cursed.
Aha! Looks like I have something to fill the void after Back to 1989 completes its running this weekend. Set to follow the slot left behind by Refresh Man on July 3rd, Prince of Wolf stars Derek Zhang Xuan Rui and Amber An. The story follows a child lost during a vacation with his parents and was raised by a pack of wolves. He still retains some of the basic qualities of being human while gaining agility, speed, and the ability to hunt. He is naive, straightforward and stubborn. His first interaction with humans is through meeting the heroine, a photographer with a sense of adventure. Together, they teach each other a few things about living within and outside of societal standards.
What a roller coaster ride. My emotions went through the wringer, ya’ll. Though there were many, many tears, the whole episode represents the hopeful side of acceptance. Accepting the fact that there are things we can and cannot control, can and cannot have, and coming out as a better person.
Did I say I Love ♥♥Chen Che♥♥? His name should be spoken with hearts!!
Dangit, the men in the Chen’s household have so much self-control to throw a punch! In this sense, I would’ve loved to see Ya Juan’s mom’s reaction to the whole situation since she inadvertently facilitated Zhong En’s candle of hope.
Why…Why. I initially wanted to return to recap this drama because episode 11 blew the angst off the lid and hit me in the heart with more ways than one. Then the tragedy struck this episode and now I’m left dangling with a bruised heart, wavering between wanting to continue and fearing of the repercussions. Why do you have to be so painful, Show? Can’t 1989 be all about the birth of jolly Kappy? I’m not important? Kthanks. WAHH.
Taking a break to watch some dramas! A few weeks ago, Yui recommended two dramas for me to watch. Both are Taiwanese dramas, 1) Refresh Man with Aaron Yan and Joanne Tseng and 2) Back To 1989 with a cast I’m unfamiliar with. My choice? Fresh faces! And I also like the synopsis much better. A sharply-dressed man accidentally time-travels to the year before his birth to meet his mom and find the truth about his missing father. Sounds good.
