I need intervention.
In a few short days I have become a 腦殘粉/ stan of this so craptastically stupid my brain must’ve been fried by it thing. If you cringed at my last post on this silly drama at being …silly and pervie. you know what direction this is heading, and it is not respectably up.
In a series of caps, this is what me and every stan is watching, and we see no problem with it:
And scenes captured from top to bottom are: Date. Danger/saving of damsel the dude. Feeding medicine. Eating dinner. Sleeping. Fighting. Breaking up. Making up. Lazing around bored. Just feel like Kissing. Hohoho. A big fat burn. To all you single nerds.
Who would rather watch 40 episodes of looping say, their kissing gifs?!?!
Oh. … … m…e. I lost count how many there are floating out there and I might have to categorize it by their clothes.
And that entertains us PC/Wallace+TangYan/ CP 3 Xu Changqing+ Zixuan stans a lot. Yes, I can ignore the rest, nothing crappy happens in drama *ohm*. Yet, all in all, I do not have the heart to snark at it, still do not regret breezing through, up to date at episode 3!8!!!!! just a weekend. I regret nothing. I should, because shameless things I am now about to cut my fingers not to do, puts even me to shame. So start thinking up interventions and distractions to save me before reading on.
IF you are in any way tempted to check this out, and if prompted by me, I sincerely send my hugs and kisses and apologies and lots of Wallace and TangYan so sweet I cringe kissing gifs, it was good enough for its purposes where I was spazzing a post out of it *Swear* , you know you are parking your brain at the door, but wear a magneto helmet that will safe yourself the hazard (look no further than MOI). I am uncharacteristically non~nitpicky when fluff is involved, pretty faces of OTP(to me) being shameless. A dose of it often and anything serving me some, I can ignore EVERYTHING else. Hey all I am saying is the writing is silly and stupid, when I can slay it the whole summer if I care to. But, around ep 20+ on, it’s all crappiest writing so lazy and they stop the candies. Now I do not have a problem with the crapping writing (!) It is obvious no ine is watching it for plot, BUT HOW dare you got us all hooked on the sugar rush then rob us, serve us putrid garbage still delivered by our sweet darlings instead?! SOBZ
This is now the run of the mill, my usual pain in the behind Cperiod idolturd when characters have personality switches by the scene just to serve an illogical plot so silly nothing is worth it and why are you throwing poopoo at the character constructs of our hero and heroine, we say we lost our mind, lose some IQ in love, but that is just a saying, never ALL the IQs, and for what?! to fabricate headdesky angst and let the baddies take over show till the bitter end?! NO ONE IS MORE MENTAL THAN YOU Ms WRITER! No baddie not half as pretty as Wallace at the very least, is worth taking up my screen when I can have OTP giving me toothaches tyvm.
Now lets have a serious chat about Cidoldrama writers and what the F is wrong. C idolperiods are obviously costly, they look very flamboyantly pretty quite often they put say Empress Ki, said to be very pretty a saguek roaming the grounds of middle kingdom Yuan to grade school drama costuming. It is a beast now usually dragged out 40-60 episodes long, lots of costumes and ornamentations, however gaudy and against my aesthetics but the labor is there all on sleeves and they still cost many Beijing mortgages. PC is set in Ming, my poor hubs can’t help but watched bits along reminded me, but lets not go there on historical authenticity, I don’t care myself in this genre. Tong Hua attached her name as the head of the ‘writing team’, it makes sense. Because this is not trom TongHua, but writers obviously so stupid, and must be paid less than peanuts, it is even too much to ask them to churn out 40, 50 episodes of shrills, unless you are yuma, because we can trust the creative (no pun intended) troll to continuously crapping every second of his brandname poop, no other human being on earth past present and future can ever plagiarize. Courtesy to him, we have a new murder weapon unimaginable:
Yes there is a fire going on, and we are indulged in a clear shot of next to the cabbage, unfrozen, there are large pots and pans and vases. Well uncle could be a zombie and that a Bonkchoy which can beat crap out of undead?!
And Goong3 is an entire drama of spectacular stupidity if one was to be locked up in a mental asylum for life, but kissed by the writer’s bug, everyone can write a million words of snark on EVERY scene each day. Be my guest. This is yuma’s exercise in the excess of mental crapping and he beats his past self. In movies, we have Saw/ human centipede1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…, in Cdramas we have Goongs. This is intended to insinuate so much hate and snark and hence negative popularity and we will yell at it, calling it drama destressing ‘therapy’, our RL is not stinky no more. But I would say it even failed at it, because I have heard of dearies commenting they would seriously kill themselves off first rather than make screengrabs of this to poke ‘fun’ at.
I got so morbidly curious I did some investigation on who is responsible for crapping on my fluffing sweetest OTP of late. The main writer of Perfect Couple: 金媛媛Dorothy looks young, in her 20s, proudly describing herself at her weibo in tagline she is the writer ( on the TEAM of writers I bet, do not see her having the main writing credit) giving us Sealed With A KISS/千山暮雪 and Best Time/最美的时光. Argh. If only I knew prior. Under this silly system where a bunch of incompetent ‘writers’ going for speed and a big shot such as a Tong Hua selling out her name but obviously not doing any proper editing, nor coordinating, it gives rise to plots all over the place bizarre, characters having multiple lobotomies and personality changes by the scene… the same old, but it is still shockingly bad. Most probably they chop up an episode between the writer minions and throw it together in a chopshey. You can tell there is a loose idea of a storyline they need to get from point A to B to C, but how they get there was so dumb it feels like it was thrown out on the set last minute to be the easiest and fastest to get the scene done, so they can blaze to the next illogical storyline, to squeeze into as short a production duration possible. It is getting more and more cutthroat and expensive making a Cidolperiod, even though once it is aired, it has a definite market, no matter the quality. But it could sit on the shelf indefinitely at the mercy of the latest whim of the censorship bureau SARFT, the real TPTB of Cdramaland. *And hallelujah to Auntie Qiong Yao for properly suing yuma’s butt for plagiarizing/crapping. It looks like the slot for Song in the Clouds in June is opened up as SARFT is doing a discretionary ban on yuma now that he is involved in litigation and…HUA XU YIN will take its place!!!! Cheers to all of us who can’t wait to see the sparks of YuanHong and JiangXin on our screen!!! Hip hip hurray!!!!* Just of late they set up new rules limiting the quota for period dramas by a certain number of hours per annum and only 2 local cable channels maximum can run the same show at the same time in first run. It is not hard to understand how such a vicious circle where no care is put into proper writing because whatever corner can be cut, has to be cut, when you don’t even know your drama can even be aired and paying a Tong Hua for an ‘appearance’ fee when in actuality young bit writers I am not even sure are paid are the ones doing the heavylifting and the product brandname marketable to the cables on that aspect as well. As long as syndication is sold, why should they bother about writing when peeps like me would watch it for the pretty and headdesk?!
But this results in dramas so very crappy it is waste of some rare good things hard to even ask for, namely this screen CP! It is like we are back to the days of cheap knock off of panda purses faking as pradas. Come on.
What disgust me so much with BBJQ all along is TR the production company behind it, they are out just to squeeze a quick buck milking the actors (and they let TR) but have to pretend to be all righteous and serious as if they gave a decent care as a drama maker and respect for the fandom, and doing a horrible job even keeping up THAT facade. The production value is SO ATROCIOUS, on that alone, it got my blood boil because no Nicky, ShiShi, Annie, Sun Yi Zhou (who has his own fandom from the mega popular sitcom Ipartment franchise) deserves this treatment when they set all eyes on product placement, ad money and NOTHING ELSE. Writing is by retarded mentally imbalanced slave baboons, and every department is just second rated shabby if I am being nice. Take a look at what pops up on my Wlist, WTF is this makeup job now?! And I quickly avoid my eyes after reading words attached to this is funeral makeup, has sth to do with the stupid character dying, then not, but I bet will be after seeing himself in the mirror.
– End Rant –
So what silly things I did/about to do?
1) Giggling to their webchat with the fans at weibo. Wallace has been answering questions directing specifically at TangTang for her in shameless PDA and TangTang is doing the same. I have not seen this amount of fanservice feeding RL shippers on both end. @__@ HuGe is in the mix as well, someone is @ ing YuanHong to feed us some more slashy goodness, but I think he has better things to occupy himself. Good for him!
2) Properly watch their CP cut in Chinese Paladin 3. Here. Properly as in basking in the comment glory at bilibili. (to turn commentory off, there is a little ‘talk bubble’ dialogue prompt right of volume and you can check them off) The dearie inserted 120 mins of World Heritage documentary in the first clip on LiJang, on the ancient culture of Dong Ba, background for the story. All because I saw some gifs. And Wallace the producer works their CP nick Chang Xuan in Chinese Paladin 3 into the names of the second couple, OTPs bffs: Gu Changfeng, Jiang Xiaoxuan and that will do it, slaying me alive.
And that, on Wallace’s ChangXing’s face is Love at First Sight.
She is a descendant of Nüwa’s and a demigod not subjected to the wheel of reincarnation like her mortal love. All she can do is wait for his reincarnation for 3 lifetimes and fall in love with him all over again every time.
3) The fanvids. The Deep end.
They dug out all the fluffy bts, every one of them and haha at the end inserted a must! scene in Perfect Couple they are demanding to see.
I watched very little of CP3, but this teared me up:
They made one playing with bkgd music, of Wallace stripping. You can thank me now.
And I have not really started digging.
4) Is it possible to not be a RL shipper of them after this?! Argh. RL shippers are mostly cuckoos(if I offend, I offend *shrug*) and I am turning one myself obviously. YangMi’s weibo must’ve been spammed by the craycrayRL shippers to ‘help out’ making Wallace and TangYan the couple happens ever since this started airing. MiMi wrote a weibo being her very cute and witty self and it spun out another stratosphere of rabidness coining hottest hashtags. I have not seen this widespread one-sided cheering for a reel to real couple to happen, stans are now promising YangMi if she does her end of the bargain, making romance comes true in any way haha they will make sure the box office of her upcoming movies (argh TinyTimes 3) be awesome, they joke seriously they will pay for all the expense of their marriage license, banquet, dowry, honeymoon, MiMi’s wedding gift, baby’s banquet…AND the wedding of their future babies now that YangMi is about to be a Mommy! LOL. So adorbs.
