A young Jin Dong
It is a crime to look so pretty so young and now grown into a fine fine actor.
But it is downright criminal to make sense why I have a weirdest fondness towards Baron Chen when I could not stand his acting, at times his face is not pretty enough yet keep watching crap for him, latest regret being Bromance because someone dropped me a BTS to She Is from MNIKSS (I do not recommend clicking). WHY are they such facetwins?!?!?!?!?!?
MYGRAWRD Lil Three Stone bebe, WHY SO YOUNG WUXIA HERO DREAMY FINE. Anyone less yummy using a weapon of crazy chunks of burnt brownies would be telltale sign I should stay away.
Chang Chen in Brotherhood of Blades 2. Stop. Please.
I have crazy high expectations of the deliciousness of a CC+YM CP now.
Not that I am over the BaiQian/YeHua OTP just yet:
This must be me fav YangMi’s magazine spread out of her million+, jusy enough dreamy romanticism attune to 3L3W yet her face is every bit the modern feisty superwoman herself
Zhao Liying, Lin Gengxin and Shawn Dou are all competent and promising, that’s why I would give Princess Agents a shot, though I am not a fan of Xin-chan in periods, but why can’t it come out now instead of summer?!?! They look too ridiculously cute who wouldn’t want a modern fluff out of them.
Is there a CN It Started With A Kiss I have guarded my memory from?! Because if they try, I will be its slave.
I am quite addicted to Crime Scene CN, I liked the jtbc orig of course, being a detective show/book junkie. The recent case of ‘Horror Fairytale’ is quite a braintwister, homage to And Then There Were None, fav Agatha Christie. Not related, but it sparked a frenzy and there is a republican era fanMV of memorable characters.
So far gone I have fallen into shipping variety show folks:
Their CP nick of 魄魄 ( ‘white’/Bai + ‘ghost’/Gui = soul) is so cute. I am so hopelessly defenseless when I’m fed a cute CP fanvid to any ISWAK song, lesigh:
Yup, I want an ISWAK remake with them terribly now and I would be the last person needing ANY more time wasting on ISWAK remakes don’t y’all think?!?!?! It is criminal to tempt me.
Yuan Hong is looking like a criminal, locked up behind fences with quite awesome fake tats
And the next minute back to work like a good boy on the blessing ceremony for 爱的正确标记法:
Typical unlikely couple, she is bubbly and carefree, he is stuck-up highstrung IT hotshot. I could not bet on it being amazing knowing very little about PD/Writer, but I have to count my blessings when I am just wishing he could be match up with someone I do not mind staring at her face, and I get SongJia whom I want to marry more than YH.
Fellow ChenXiao fangirl, have you watched his latest drama?! Did you headdesk a hole on your forehead watching?! The correct answer for sanity preservation is no and no, like this wise!Dama typing here. But there is the most lovely person 节操桥上炮龙烹凤的魔女总裁, who will gif his gorgeousness for our pleasure taking a BIG one for the team always:
I am not that interested in his upcomings with both SunLi, nor ChenXiaoEn, I have lost love for both ladies, plus I do not think CX’s naughty cunning manboy vibe works for seriously romancing powerful ladies who seems more mature.
But I have a C modern drama I am MADLY in love I could not look away: Solaso Bistro/問題餐廳 (Solaso is homonym to ‘hand holding hand’ in mandarin), CN remake of MondaiResto/問題のあるレストラン. I was going to give it 5 minutes on the goodwill of Jiao JunYan (DaiBo fr Dr Qin) alone, expecting there is no way this is actually watchable, Jdorama and Cdrama sensibilities are like water and oil, and fitting Yuji Sakamoto’s loquacity into all the shallow cringeworthy patronizing tropes of C modern trendy… I was prepared for an Ode to Joy trauma, just worse.
But this is love, this does everything O2J failed so fumingly. Fans of the dorama may critique this is less fresh an uncreative copy of the original, but it takes a miracle for a Cdrama to translate and decipher the dorama and to fit it into CN’s societal norms, though similar in the challenges a young woman faces in a conservative society, never the same. It delves even more unadorned, deeper, puts into plainer words and dramatic compositions…easier to relate and fall for, than the original imo. What hook me the most is this speaks from a female perspective on the hopeless misogynistic trappings society wrapped us all in, and these characters fight their little hesitant battles authentically. They just feel darn real, and for a change the male trash douches are ignorantly in their own planet where the writer/PD are NOT condoning it as some utopia women should unrealistically dream to someday cut our bloody flesh off to fit into some glass slippers and be inadequately in the boy’s club.
