Happy New Year to all!!
Happy New Year to all!!
I rarely watch films so it’s nice to see two actors in dramaland reunited in the big screen, hoping that it will make up for their lackluster chemistry in Love Me If You Dare. Lol. The movie is inspired by Chyi Chin’s song and he later contacted Rao Xue Man to write a novel, which the movie is based on. Our two characters meet each other at a Chyi Chin concert and thus begins a 30-year romance across three cities.
Somewhere Winter premieres in theaters on 11/15!
Following To Be a Better Man, and Mr. Right, Mr. Fighting is the third drama in the Mister series of the same team. Deng Lun plays a star falling out of favor and is suddenly abandoned by his manager of ten years. He lands in the hands of a new team, consisting of folks outside of the entertainment business (lol). He has no choice but to stick with them to find out what really happened to his old manager. As he literally tumbles in steps with his new team, he gradually becomes a better person, learning dignity, courage, and responsibility. Sandra plays his assistant but her real job is marketing for a supermarket. Sounds helpful…she is promoting stuff. Heh!
Mr. Fighting (加油你是最棒的) to air on 7/31!

Haven’t done this ginormous post in a while and I almost forgot how time-consuming it was.
Since I did a Review post for Age of Legends as the show was starting up, I thought I’d add a Discussion Post now that the series finished up this week. Judging from various comments and chats I’ve seen, it seems like there were quite a few of you watching it who didn’t realise anyone else was and others who were thinking of watching, but weren’t sure if you should commit the time. I really enjoyed it, but wanted to see what you thought about it.
So what did you think of the show? What did you like about it? What did you wish had been done better? Would you recommend it for others and why? Is William Chan the next big action star? How did you like his work on this series compared to his past work? Are you looking forward to his next series, Dancing in the Storm? Who else stood out for you in this series?
Age of Legends is a crime drama about scheming drug lords, the police who try to catch them and, caught in the middle, a man trying to remember the last eight years of his life. Revenge, secret identities, murder plots and really bad karaoke abound in this drama which is careful to balance the love story with the story of a man who aspires to be a Chinese Pablo Escobar.
This is the first modern C-drama in a while that’s really impressed me. Despite some rather melodramatic episodes, overall the first 19 episodes have been pretty fun and exciting for me. And after having watched some dramas this year where actors I’ve loved in other shows have underwhelmed me in more recent series, I was really happy to see William Chan and Sandra Ma’s characters actually engage me and keep me interested.
Airing today 9/17 with 47 episodes!
