Brilliant Girls (爱的理想生活) is a new adaptation of Zhu De Yong’s cartoon, Astringent Girl. Zhu is a renowned Taiwanese cartoonist and the previous adaptation was made in 2003 called Pink Ladies with Liu Ruo Ying. Looks like they added one more female character for a total of five female leads all living in the same villa as they discover what they want in love and for themselves by going through many hardships in life.
This one really snuck up on us, didn’t it? Not a lot of promos, then bam! We are airing! A lot of dramas are. Part one Sparrow with Li Yi Feng and Zhou Dong Yu got decent reviews, so I’m gonna go on a limp and say this one must be of parallel quality? The premise is quite interesting with Zhang playing dual roles – a spy and a gangster who makes a living by trading intelligence (kind of a perfect transition). Because of his resemblance to a Japanese spy, he’s forced by the Japanese to work for them, after they kidnap his younger sister. Unfortunately, he’s not the type of man to betray his home country and he eventually realizes his responsibilities as a citizen and fights alongside other comrades against the Japanese.
Thanks for everyone for participating last time! I think this post will just be my random spazzing of everything under the sun, so feel free to rave and rant about anything and everything, and who knows you might find that one person who shares the same opinion. =D
Since I already proved to everyone how busy January will be, it’s followed that I won’t be able to upload every one of them. Maybe later in the year when it is less busy and requests roll it. Thank-you!
