    Li Xian is such a great actor. He’s able to deliver such great performance of a guy pining for a woman when she’s not looking, but completely rejects when she’s around. That scene at the airport; I want to hate Gun so much, but the look he gives as he watches from afar making sure she gets on the right taxi was so painfully good.

    And that escalator scene. Auugh. He is not okay because he is so stupid, but I ache for him. A lot.

    Li Xian play Gun really good.

      I LOVED that elevator scene. What a great way to visually show what’s going on inside his head. He’s such a MALE, hahaha!

Just watched EP 23 and my God, the male angst is strong with this one. #GoGoSquid #CanGunstopbeingdumbforlikefiveminutes ?

I’m sorry, angst, I didn’t expect you for another five episodes at least. Dude, it wasn’t that long ago you were kissing belugas together, she even got you a cat and NOW you’re playing Noble Idiot?

    AUUUUUUUGHH! I haven’t seen ep 21 yet, but I don’t understand this angst. LIKE HOW??? They were just exchanging 😍😍 in ep 20?? When did this all happen?

    We don’t get a kiss yet. I refuse to count that peck as a kiss, even if it was super cute.

      I knooooow! I understand there are concerns in their relationship but, but… they looked at fish and she got him a cat, it’s waaaaaaaaay too early to start freaking out. Mom, what are you doing pushing your daughter away from the guy she likes and unto that bespectacled noodle of a student? **shakes head disapprovingly**

We were talking about \”Stewed Squid with Honey\” (the novel) aka \”Go Go Squid\” (the drama) with some beanies the other day and I found this blog if anyone is, like me, super interested in reading the book and absolutely incapable of reading Chinese.

    Thank you. I’m curious about it.

      You should try this! โค๏ธ Hoju’s really good translator. Also, her translation was approved by MBFB. 😉

      Also if you are curious about the flashbacks, they’re on the two prequels also translated and available at Novel Updates. 😊

        I’m so glad to hear it. I can’t really appreciate the quality of the translation (since I don’t speak or read Chinese) so it’s good to know the author approves <3. The writer of the blog is so nice too. I really love all the footnotes she took the time to incorporate. Such a wonderful detail.

    I may have spent a few (too many) hours reading more than one novel on this site. Maybe. I’m not telling.

Ni Na, my love, I wish you would just resign for real and go out to find your place somehwere that is NOT Fantasia. There are plenty of other ballet companies in the world that would be lucky to have you. Don\’t settle for being the understudy. Do what my girl Mathilde Froustey did and get yourself a soloist job in the San Francisco Ballet or something. #AngelsLastMissionLove

Iโ€™m going to just take a moment to appreciate Ha Jae Sook who plays Yeo-Woong in My Absolute Boyfriend. Not only is this woman absolutely stunning (that bone structure and those cheekbones are TO DIE FOR) but she almost make me cry this last episode with her whole speech about being a real woman and letting the man she loves go. Dramagod,s please give her a lead role, and Oscar and a modelling career.

All right. I\’m going to bed. Show, you\’ve been epic and lovely and quite the fantastic emotional ride but I\’m spent. Good night **air kisses**

WHHHAAAT? Now you\’re killing Yoon-Sung? No, Show, again, NOT the nice people. Also, sorry, but where did that fight come from ? What an epic, romantic, lovely death to give a character out of a fight thatโ€ฆ didnโ€™t need to happen ? Since when is it ok for a guard serving a noble house to try and kill the heir of said noble house ?

Little Princess for the win. Can SHE become King? Because no offence to the men in government, but I don\’t see any of you overcoming childhood traumas to help Park Bo Gum.

All right, Show, I feel like you fundamentally do not understand what I want. Stop killing the good, nice people who are trying to help and start killing the bad, mean people who are hurting others.

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds : weโ€™re at the end of Episode 17 and now somebody else is hurt. **cries**

This series was really fun. I might do another one of those (or expand on this one) at some point.

    If I had to describe this look, I’d say it’s Betty Grable in the Jazz age had a baby on Mars with a retired golf caddy. I like all of this thing separately. Together, they confuse me.

    I opened this while at my desk over lunch and giggled immediately after gasping at whatever this – this outfit is supposed to be. My neighbors around me look up when I start laughing. I showed them a couple from earlier this week and they just didn’t get it.
    poor them right?

    Itโ€™s less weird suit and more weird headdress.

      It’s weird everything. Why is his shirt so long? Why is he wearing two shirts underneath that jacket while in the South of France in summer? And why are the legs of his pants so wide?

      And yup, also the headdress.

        I like the plaid suit itself itโ€™s the weirdly long shirt and other things combined that make this a hard no.
