Out on time! Yay me!
Reset (开端) is based on the mystery-thriller novel written by Qi Dao Jun. It follows a group of people on a bus with an eventual explosion happening. Every passenger on the bus has their own story, difficulties as they board the bus of doom (my translation). As our two leading characters experience life, trauma, and death together, they begin to appreciate the meaning of life. But before they can meaningfully act on their self-growth, they must find out the truth and break the cycle of time to stop the explosion.
Airing 1/11 with a total of 15 episodes~
Bai Jing Ting has been picking good projects lately and I like what I see of Miss Zhao in The Blessed Girl.
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.

Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.
Which ones are you looking forward to?
I did not expect that in my lifetime there would be a global pandemic happening. It is – still is, very tough. Working in a major hospital, I was very fortunate to have a job through Covid but there were definitely some selfish moments where I just wanted to stay home and stay away from the hospital, where protocols and procedures keep changing every single day as we learned more things about the virus. Colleagues falling sick and hospital dispatching some of us to different areas, sometimes unrelated to our job; some smaller hospitals were sending my co-workers to work at the morgue. >.<”
I don’t know what to expect from these dramas but maybe all we need is a little thing called hope to keep us moving forward. Having this blog and some of you guys to chat with has always been the anchor of my sanity. So thank-you for that! Stay healthy, stay informed, stay connected, and stay calm! We are in this together.
It’s June! Have to stop blinking so time could slow down…
I zoned out and forgot about the trailer four days ago. Lol. But here it is for those who might not have seen it. Ling Long (玲珑) is a fantasy drama produced by Tangren.
