Drama Rant Review: My True Friend




Title: My True Friend | Native Title: 我的真朋友 | Romanized Title: Wo De Zhen Peng You
Episodes: 48 | Broadcast Period: May 19, 2019 - June 13, 2019



I usually split my reviews in sections titled the good, the bad, the ugly and the wtf, and try to keep them as spoilers-free as possible, in case people want to watch it in their own time. This time, I don’t have it in me to follow the usual pattern…
So, let’s go straight to the point.

The ONLY good thing about this drama is Zhu Yilong’s ponytail (hairdo that ZYL hated as much as the character of Jing Ran and that he couldn’t wait to get rid of as soon as possible).



;_; you looked so lovely, dear.


The WTF… I wrote a very wordy post about the language disasters (◔_◔)

The show is bad, really bad.
I watched Dreamlike Life and Princess Returns but this beats them, you know. To explain why it’s so bad, I need to tell you details about plot and characterization. I think, I won’t spoil the drama for anyone, but if you still want to give it a try, then read no further.
Obviously, following are my opinions.
I know from reading comments on Viki that some people actually enjoyed watching the drama, but most of them are Deng Lun’s fans…




Where to watch it ( as if! XD ):
Viki - Eng Sub

My True Friend and Italy: a drama-tic experience



My True Friend is currently airing and it’s available on Viki with english subs for those who, like me, wanted to give this drama a try.
I might have had an ulterior motive to watch this drama, besides the most obvious one: part of it was filmed in Italy.

I was very curious to see if it would be a few shots of the obvious landmarks or something else.

Ah, shining!





I got the something else, all right.

It wouldn’t mean much for Chinese people watching the show and, really, if you don’t live here you won’t really noticed but the Italian bits were causing me second hand embarrassment at worst, eyerolls at best.

I’m making this post for my personal fun, but I hope readers will enjoy it as well.


when in Rome...Collapse )

Drama review: The Story of Ming Lan




To celebrate the birthday of our precious, charming, talented Zhu Yilong, here's the review of drama The Story of Ming Lan. A drama in which he was just second lead but made him shine among a cast of great actors and gave him a role in a story that's very compelling and binge-worthy.

Oh, nipples! Our little dragon is way too shy!

This post content is been floating around my mind ever since I watch an interview of Zhu Yilong in which they showed his staff and fellow co-actors pulling a prank on him while he was changing, as a birthday surprise, mind you. (link to the vid under the cut).



One of the first thing I realised after getting to know a little Zhu Yilong, it's that this guy is way way too shy and that showing skin is absolutely NOT a thing he does. (Unlike our other idols...).

research is importantCollapse )



I've browsed all the pics I collected ever since I got sucker-punched by Shen Wei's ethereal beauty but those are all the revealing pictures I have.
So, I'm calling my fellow Guardian fans: what is the nakest picture of Zhu Yilong you've found? Please share! ;)

FOR SCIENCE!

EDIT 03/30: added relevant pictures :))) This entry was originally posted at https://powwie.dreamwidth.org/28511.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

What’s the deal with Shen Wei and Kun Lun?

The bad thing about Guardian reinvented world is that it feels rushed and not well crafted. The good thing about that is that we can invent parts of the story and still be in canon. *g*
I’m no writer (T__T) but as I was watching Guardian for the second time I started to have many questions and I’m enjoying reading all the speculations and making my own.
My current evil is this: what’s the deal with Shen Wei and Kun Lun? That is, when did Shen Wei realized that Zhao Yunlan and Kun Lun were the same person (and the relationship between the hollows, Zhao Yunlan and the wormhole)?

wall of text but also lovely pictures under the cutCollapse )

So many questions, your opinion? Does Shen Wei know since the beginning? When did he know for sure?
Is it even important to know? LOL
(YES!)
