First Trailer for Yang Yang’s The King’s Avatar drama adaptation

First peek at Yang Yang’s upcoming novel-to-drama adaptation of the popular work The King’s Avatar (全职高手) written by Butterfly Blue is out! Looks very similar in style to Just One Smile is Very Alluring, with the boys strutting together in unified arrogance. Lol. From the smiles, the whole experience is pretty unique in the modern filming realm.

What do you guys think?

Martial Universe – Season 2: Episodes 58-60 Recap [COMPLETE]


Finally, the end is here! Can’t believe I made it through all 60 episodes after everyone else gave up. I must be a crazy person. 🙂 There are some actors on this show who I hope to see again in other series, but I hope I never end up recapping a series like this one again. Don’t think I could make it through next time.

So let’s finish the final three episodes of Martial Universe!

Martial Universe – Season 2: Episodes 53-57 Recap

Did a marathon of last week’s episodes to catch up on this series before the final three episodes and now I’m all annoyed with this series all over again. This week was flashbacks galore, sad music galore, pity parties everywhere, things get even more complicated and then they ended the week by breaking my heart. *sigh* If Lang Tian doesn’t suffer a miserable death at the end of this… argh!!!

So let’s hurry up and get through week 4 of Martial Universe!

Martial Universe – Season 2: Episodes 48-52 Recap

After moving to another state and trying to get settled in, I’m catching up on the latest episodes of Martial Universe. This week our Tiger finally found his Tigress (or I should say Fox), Lang Tian still can’t be defeated, Qing Zhu finally finds out what happened to her father and Lin Diao even shows that he’s more than just a little brat.

So let’s start week 3 of Martial Universe!

Martial Universe – Season 2: Episodes 43-47 Recap

Now that Dramafever is no longer, I’ll be watching this show on Viki.com and, since they aren’t turning episodes around as quickly as Dramafever was, there may be a two or three day delay for me to post the recaps for the week, but I’ll keep posting as soon as they are finished.

This week: Lang Tian bites the hand that fed him…and takes her powers, my favourite Tiger finally returns, Lin Dong reunites with his sister, some characters get killed off, and we travel to the Demon Domain and meet a bunch of new characters including Lin Diao’s family and future wife. So let’s start week 2 of Martial Universe!

Martial Universe – Season 2: Episodes 41 & 42 Recap


It’s baaaa-aaack! Everyone’s favourite show to read the recaps for instead of watch is here. Based on the Season 1 finale and the trailer for Season 2, I’m hopeful that it will start to get better. (And if you want English subs, Dramafever has them 8 hours after the show airs in China while Viki is taking a while on theirs.)

This week: Lin Dong tries to get another talisman, Lang Tian officially joins the dark side (they have cookies!), Huan Huan takes the next step to becoming the Ice Master and Dao Sect loses some disciples. So let’s begin Season 2 of Martial Universe!

Martial Universe recaps are returning…

Yes, Season 2 of Martial Universe starts tomorrow and, as promised, I’ll be recapping it once again as I watch the subtitled versions on Viki. (Oh, for the love of William Chan, why did it have to start this week?!?!) I’ll start posting next week while I also finish recapping the final week and a half of Let’s Shake It 2. (Still trying to figure out the exact schedule for the episodes this season since they are starting on Thursday instead of Tuesday.)

Enid Bee: I know IMOmusings is done with this series and I’m ready to start recapping a new show, so I’m taking over screenshot and formatting duties for this final post to give her a much needed break and to get these done for all our faithful readers. (Hi, Hohliu!)
