Upcoming Taiwanese Summer Dramas 2016

Heya Everyone!

So since I only have one more week of finals to go, I’ve been itching to start watching dramas. Here’s a list of upcoming Taiwanese dramas I’ve seen, as well as a little aside about whether or not I’ll tune in.

Devil Game [劣人傳之詭計]

This is a Taiwanese web drama that focuses on the darker sides of human nature. It’s a suspense/horror style trilogy, and the first one “Game” is currently airing. The description reads: “Mankind often chooses to run away from things we don’t like, things we’ve done badly. We are unwilling to think of our darker natures, but they linger forever at the bottom of our hearts.We just don’t know when in our lives it’ll spring forth, and rob us of our humanity.”

Pretty grim and dramatic, but it looks interesting! I’ll be tuning into this one soon ^_^

Better Man [我的極品男友]

This drama focuses on three brothers who are all wealthy, good looking, and smart, but who all shun any romantic notions. The oldest only has dreams of furthering his catering business, the second  works in the entertainment industry, while the third is the new CEO of the family empire. How will the three react when they each meet someone who turns their perfect little worlds upside down?

80 eps, and 3 brothers looking for romance? eh…. Sorry, I’m probably skipping this one.

Metro of Love [台北愛情捷運故事]

6 love stories set against the backdrop of the Taipei Metro…where each love story surrounds a different line.

Uh, I see you Taipei MRT company, and what you’re trying to do. You’re super handy and all but I think I’ll skip this one too (sorry Chris Wu).

KO One Remember [終極一班4]

Another KO sequel. Three students join the Ultimate class, but the female leader is missing. Ultimate Class’s leader is also missing.

Skip. Never watched the first, and although i might, since this franchise is very popular (original series, parent story, and sequel), I don’t think this fourth instalment will be my cup of tea.

Prince of Wolf

This drama stars Amber An and Derek Chang in a story about a young boy who went missing on vacation, but never truly forgot his human mannerisms. Smart, agile, and strong, he saves a photographer when she almost fell down a hole.

I’m not sure about whether or not I’ll watch this. I’m not the biggest Amber fan after watching the beginning of the Apple of my Eye, so maybe I’ll just watch the first episode. Plot seems hard to believe, but I enjoyed Sound of the Desert which has a young girl who was raised by wolves so… :/

Amber An — Hello (安心亞–哈囉) Song Translation

Hey Guys! Here is the English translation of Hello by Amber An, from the OST of Apple in Your Eye. She also plays the main lead in it, but I couldn’t find it in myself to like her character or the drama. I really liked this song however, and translated it before my haitus. Enjoy!

2014 End of Year Review!

Wow, another year has flown by and I am starting to feel really old….Which, numerically isn’t true, but man does it seem like dramaland across all countries keeps churning out more and more dramas. This is my first time doing a year end review, so go easy on me! I was also really busy this year, and unfortunately ended up dropping a lot of dramas or putting them on hold!
