This is the one that I have been looking forward too the most, I have made it through 29 days of Asian drama's so let's see how much of it I've actually seen! My total watch time on MyDramaList is... 2 days, 15 hours and 39 minutes! Yeah I've talked about Asian drama's for 27 … Continue reading So How Many Asian Drama’s Have I Actually Seen?
During the course of this challenge there has been one thing that has been asked a lot but never done, and that is to talk about actors and actresses, which ones you like, and which ones you don't. This is because I never follow actors and actresses and they don't tend to be the things … Continue reading Simona Wang
This question is very subjective, and some may argue that a show is only as popular is it should be, however if shows can gain massive popularity, only to retroactively have it's fan base turn on it and realise how bad it is (SAO) then surely it is possible that a good show could have … Continue reading Why do Good Shows Get Under-hyped?
Big head son, little head daddy is a series that brings a smile upon every person's face who has known it and grown up with it. The series has been recommended to me by multiple people and followed up with by friends to see what I thought about it. However, much to their disappointment it … Continue reading How Bad Shows get Over-hyped – Using Kid’s Cartoon’s as Examples
Obviously when you go to try and summarise Asian Drama's in two words, immediately two words come to mind "Asian" and "Drama", however which is better? The one which describes the location and the culture of which the drama comes from, or the one that describes the genre of the entertainment, and the kind of … Continue reading Describe Asian Drama’s In One Word
This is kind of a part two to the first post I made in this challenge, where I talked about why I chose Asian drama's in the first place, if you want to read that you can find it here! But this is more of a how, and when I started watching kind of thing. … Continue reading How Did I Start Watching Asian Drama’s?
See the kind of joke in the title? Yeah that kind of thing is my favourite. Yesterday I hoped that I would not be asked for a superlative question, and I thought I had nearly gotten away with it, but I hadn't. Today I need "A picture of your favourite scene in an Asian drama" … Continue reading I Like These Scenes In Drama A Lot – And I Still Dislike Superlative Questions the Most!
Even if I really liked the show a lot I will rarely re-watch it. There are of course plenty of reasons to this, and of course reasons in the specific cases where I would overlook these reasons to re-watch it! So why go back to re-watch something? The obvious reason is that you enjoy it, … Continue reading I Don’t Tend To Re-watch Anything
This is something that I've learned slowly, and obviously it's not a rule that is always true, it just tends to be that I like the introduction the most. This doesn't mean that I don't anticipate an ending, and enjoy it, perhaps the finale is what I sometimes like the most in shows. But in … Continue reading In A Story, I Think I Like Openings The Most
To many people the number of episodes in a series can be off-putting, and people may not want to get into something that is so long since it might distract them from other things. I think shows with a large episode count would be much more of a problem/concern for me if I actually cared … Continue reading Shows With Ridiculously High Episode Counts
The most recent episode of an Asian Drama I watched was episode one of "I hear you" and I thought it would be good to run through what made me drop it in about ten minutes. But now of course that I've explained this, I will likely have to watch the rest of the episode … Continue reading How I can Drop Shows So Easily
What a difficult topic to talk at length about! Oh well, shouldn't be a problem, we'll carry on regardless. It's honestly difficult to say, because what I have watched of Asian drama's isn't typically what I look for. Ok let's start with country, which country of Asian drama's do I look for? The answer for … Continue reading My Favourite Genre’s of Asian Drama’s!
If you introduce a character to be a certain way, then if they suddenly change in the next episode for seemingly no reason then it's kind of clear that there was an error with the characters introduction as they seemingly give off the wrong impression. The character like this for me was Chu Yun from … Continue reading Introductions Count For Characters, Please Use Better Writing!
Netflix has a certain drama called "Well-Intended Love" and if I'm being completely honest, "Well-Intended" are the only really good ways to describe it. Because although it's fine now, and smooth sailing, it wasn't always like that. Let me tell you the story of how these couples came to be. A person called Ling was … Continue reading This Has To Be The Most Messed Up Start To A Relationship In Asian Drama!
Yesterday I talked about what makes me keep watching a piece of media once it's already got my interest, however what about from the outside looking in? What makes me choose to watch that thing in the first place? Well not a lot, I'm a simple person prepared to try things without much of a … Continue reading What Makes Me Watch… Well Anything?
If you find a TV show, film, or anything else that you like, what makes you keep watching it? Do you watch it for the characters, the actors, the story line, the music, the visuals or what? The obvious answer is everything, however what is the most important really? To me it has to be … Continue reading What Makes Me Keep Watching… Anything Really?
How do you define best OST? It's not necessarily easy, and I suppose it boils down to which one you like listening to the most on repeat. Now it may not surprise you that I'm going to twist this definition slightly. What if there was an OST with one song so good, that it could … Continue reading My Favourite Song From An Asian Drama!
I am currently watching several Asian Drama's however one of these is "IPartment" or "ai qing gong yu" and if you want a brief description of what you might be in for by watching it, it's like China's absurd version of "Friends" - or so I've been told. I've not actually seen "Friends" Essentially we … Continue reading Please Sub The Rest of IPartment! (And the Rest of The Asian Drama’s I Like) – Where My Chinese Subs At?
Hey I've not done any regular blog posting in a very long time, so I thought I'd try one of those 30 day challenge things to see how it went. I've done the 30 days of anime challenge already so that leaves me with doing the 30 days Asian drama challenge! Here is a sneak … Continue reading Time For A Change Time For More Posts
In the last episode review I made some predictions about how the game would take place and I was fairly happy with my predictions all things considered, and everything that I made that was wrong was oddly convenient and/or stupid. The first thing was, the deck is changed every time! If I knew this everything … Continue reading Liar Game S2 EP 3 – The Conclusion of 17 Poker!
I thought that I might review the next arc in one whole post, but then episode one turned out to be one hour long! So I don't want to write what will probably be 2.5 hours of watch time into one post! This is the first episode I'm watching without reading the same thing in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action S2 ep 1 – 1 Hour Long Pilot!
Hey instead of writing about episode 11 and 12 individually I sort of skipped them because they were both recap episodes! You really don't need two recap episodes in a 13 episode show, it was just overkill. They disguised the recap by introducing a new character who was told the events as they happened. It … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action eps 11-13
I didn't think the producers could really mess this show up very much, because I think the strange charm of the story could work. But they messed it all up again! First of all they messed up the easiest thing which was the setting. Instead of giving us a normal airport like the one in … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 9 – Start of the Contraband Game
I don't like reviewing whole episodes of this show when not a lot happens in it so I will be reviewing each one in the same post until the arc is concluded. I will write them in order, so the section of episode 3 will be written before the section for episode 4. Ep 3 … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action – Minority Game Arc Review
Let's continue with the second episode of this live action adaptation of Liar Game which is a manga you all should read. I had a lot to say with the first episode because I was just getting over the initial shock of the dramatic change in tone. This may be a little less content because … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 2- Weird Changes
The last live action Japanese TV show I saw was great teacher onizuka and it really didn't disappoint. So how did this version fare? Well it was ok, it never really reached the extreme highs of GTO live action but it's episode one and its early days yet. It seems like I'll be reviewing a … Continue reading Liar Game Live Action ep 1 – The Manga Becomes Real!
