I still think it’s a silly name… Continue reading “It a Kiss Filming Photos”
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! 🙂
I guess the TW dramaland folks have decided a decade is enough time to remake It Started With a Kiss, fondly known by its fans as ISWAK. The original aired in 2005, which I still can’t believe was 11 years ago..until I see the fashions and filming quality from back then haha. I made a post previously about ISWAK and it’s many remakes (K-drama, J-drama), and now it’s getting a revamp back in its native country. Err..sort of native country, since to be fair it was inspired by a Japanese manga. Continue reading “It Started With a Kiss…TW Remake?”
It’s been a long time 🙂
Almost a year too long actually…So what have I been up to you ask? Well, I’ve graduated uni, come away with a lot of experience (ha) and a
piece of paper degree. I’ve moved across the world to study my masters (in Taiwan no less!) I’ve also stopped watching any sort of drama
However, now that my first year is wrapping up, and I have a handle on my workload (tip, please don’t take more than
6 5 4 3 classes a semester if you’re in grad school), I’ve been feeling an itch to start blogging and watching dramas again. I apologize for not giving any of you a proper heads up, it’s been a whirlwind of a storm.
So with that out of the way… any recommendations? I’ve been eyeing the new revamp of ISWAK which is coming out sometime in 2016, but other than that have nothing else planned!
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!
