Drama: Miss No Good (不良笑花)
Posted November 12, 2008on:
Bu Liang Xiao Hua
I was definitely expecting this drama to be another one of those immature jokes that the Taiwan entertainment industry occasionally pushes out. After a few episodes (Ok, I watched all ten episodes that have aired within a week!), Bu Liang Xiao Hua or Miss No Good is in reality refreshing and sometimes funny. Rainie Yang does a good job playing a untypical girl with a screwed fashion sense.
I was really excited to see Wilber Pan as an actor and I’m not at all disappointed. In most dramas, the male lead is obviously trying to look handsome on camera with deliberate poses. (*cough* Mike He *cough*) I don’t know if Wilber’s doing the same thing, but he seems like a natural actor.
I’m going to keep on watching as new episodes come out each week. Don’t know if this drama is really for you? Just skim the first episode or two and you’ll know if you totally hate or love the main characters.
