this is a repeat from the previous challenge! (Day 6)
Not going to lie – I really, really detested Romantic Princess. It got all sorts of hype because of the Fahrenheit band members Wu Chun and Calvin Chen, but in my opinion feel flat partially as a result of it. It tried to be so romantic/mushy/fairytale and ended up a hollow shell. This is the drama that made me start my 3 episode policy, after I so foolishly tried to struggle through all 11 episodes because up til then I hadn’t ever dropped a drama. It had an awful plot (seriously the entire drama consists of the girl and guy falling in love but then trying to hide it because the grandpa wants them to get together) and zero chemistry. My apologies for the major bashing if you liked this drama, but I wasn’t able to connect with it.
Greengrassjelly here! The worst asian drama I’ve ever seen was New My Fair Princess (remake of the Chinese Princess Returning Pearl). I’m sorry for people who do like it, but I could go on forever about how bad it was. It is one of the few dramas I’ve seen where I don’t know the budget but it seems like it was very low. I mean, really, if you’re going to do a remake of legendary trilogy/series, it better be AMAZING. But no, they had to go and ruin it. They picked a cast completely of newcomers so the acting was already iffy, and the script was poorly written because the dialogue seemed unnatural/overly dramatic. Not to mention, there were so many horse-riding scenes that looked sooooo fake (whereas the original cast ACTUALLY learned how to ride horses WITHOUT saddles), and just everything about it didn’t compare to the original–I honestly don’t know why they would bother with a remake if it’s trying to be exactly like the original. But yeah, that’s my rant 😛 You guys should also look up parodies of NMFP, because they’re probably better than the actual drama itself…
