Drama: Honey and Clover (蜂蜜幸运草)
Posted May 28, 2008on:
I was watching the May 23rd showing of 康熙来了 (Kangxi Come) when they interviewed the cast of an upcoming drama starring Joe Cheng from ISWAK. I’m totally psyched for this drama since the cast seems amazing. The supporting actress 张钧甯 (also appearing in 白色巨塔, White Tower) has been nominated for an Golden Horse award.
The first episode (sans subtitles) is already available for download at verycd.com for those of you who can understand Chinese: http://www.verycd.com/topics/280046/
[Update 07/25/08] I never made it past the first episode. Worth watching? Not really… according to the low ratings this show is getting. Rumors say the show will be cut short because of the disappointing viewership. I guess even Joe Cheng can’t save this drama.
