OH MY GAHHHH. It’s a beautiful sunday and I see this first thing in the morning! One of the quieter dramas that will also broadcast in June is the Chinese remake of Japanese drama Shinya Shokudo, which was also based on a Japanese manga series by Yarō Abe. Trailer for Mark Zhao‘s single parenthood has just been released and though he plays a mute father left behind with a baby girl after his wife (Stephy Qi Wei)’s departure, his eyes and smile speak volume about the pain and love he feels but cannot say. The little girl, child actress Ma Qian Yi, also brings in her A game.
The Chinese remake of Jdrama Shinya Shokudo, which was also based on a Japanese manga series by Yarō Abe has finally let us peek inside its characters and their moving stories.

The adaptation boasts a solid casting, inviting big names from both Mainland China and Taiwan. For the full list, please visit its previous post here.

Caught a break and went to watch The Jungle Book with my little boy. Seems like the running theme in all Disney movies is identifying and enhancing one’s sense of self (be the best of you!) Haven’t watched the original movie or animation series, but I enjoyed the movie and loved it quite a bit. Baloo and his jokes got me rolling.
