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 ^_^
[26 episodes: June 8-August]
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.
[80 episodes: June 1 to September 20]
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).
[20 episodes: April 1 to August 12]
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.
[40 episodes: June 27 to September]
Swimming Battle [飛魚高校生]
Starring Kingone Wang, this drama revolves around…swimming competitions and pool side love stories. I haven’t been able to find much yet, they’ll probably be releasingbe releasing more information as time gets closer.
Sorry Kingone, skip.
[? episodes: July 1 to November 30]
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…
[20 episodes: July 3 to November 13]
Aaaaaand that’s it! Let me know which ones you guys are interested in, and whether or not I missed any! 🙂
