Asian Drama Fever

Cutest drama I’ve seen in a really really long time. The three major characters can all be described as cute. Even the English name of the drama: To Get Her = Together. Adorable!

As for the main players, I like the fact that Rainie’s character is very solemn. I’m usually not a fan of her upbeat/hyper personality but as the character of Chen Mo Mo, she is forced into a quite role. I love it! She is much more lovable when she is solemn (i.e. her older music video for Ideal Lover).

George Hu as Jia Sen is quiet hilarious. Even when he is trying to be serious or when he’s upset, his character still cracks me up. Jiro is also very funny… Read the rest of this entry »

This new drama with Fahrenheit’s Jiro Wang has great potential to be entertaining. Like a typical Asian drama, there’s a theme: FOOD! More specifically: 蛋炒飯 (fried rice made with eggs and other yummy condiments). There’s also the typical love triangle: rich boy, poor boy, and cute girl. We all know who’s going to get the girl, right?

The is a very impressive twist: the girl is blind! Genie plays her character really well. She looks cute even with empty looking eyes. They kind of remind me of anime eyes in Chobits.

Jiro’s serious acting skills have not improved since I first saw him on ISWAK. He should probably stick to the comedic side character. However, I’m a huge fan of Danson Zhe’s performance in the first couples episode I’ve seen of Rolling Love. He has improved a lot since Hana Kimi and his character is very different from his usual beauty obsessed-girly male characters. Sadly, Danson is not the lead (as seen in the poster). I’m still waiting for that day to come.

Number of Episodes: 13

It’s finally here! The sequel to the much love ISWAK (It Started With A Kiss) with Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng. Fahrenheit’s Jiro Wang still plays the comic relief and another member of Fahrenheit is also joining the cast. The series (titled They Kiss Again in English) airs Sundays beginning on December 16th.

The first episode gives the impression that this going to be a good sequel and is very likely to live up to the first season. It does not tell very much about where next couple episodes will go. A very long and very sweet makeout session at the end of episode kicks off season 2 with a good start. The relationship between Ariel and Joe’s characters continues in unvocalized love including cute silent moments and little bouts of jealousy.
