Beanie level: Noble idiot

Watching the Chinese version of You Are My Destiny / (Fated to Love You). So far, this is my favorite of the 5 different versions of this drama that I’ve watched.

    I’m loving it too but that secretary is annoying! I get they’re trying to make him the comic relief but nah, he’s over rude to jianxin.
    And the second lead guy, I don’t know if it’s just me but I don’t like him a bit. Something about him seem fake (I didn’t like that character in the Kdrama version either)
    So forgive my ted talk, What do you think about the other characters aside from the leads?

      Similar to the other versions, I have developed a strong hatred for Anna. This version seems to be going down the Taiwanese version route where she was evil. I like the sister character that this version turned into the heroine’s best friend.

        I’m just here waiting for subs to come out so I can binge the rest in a go.
        Anna is definitely evil, I can’t remember much of her character in the Korean version.

          She wasn’t as bad in the Korean version as in the original Taiwanese version as the Korean version instead opted used the male leads “fatal illness, noble idiocy” to drive the car accident and split up the couple. However, I came into the Korean drama with residual hatred for Anna from the original Taiwanese version. In that version Anna faked an Abortion Agreement supposedly from the male lead that she gave to the female lead. The car accident happened because the female lead ran from the male lead when she thought he was trying to force her to go for an abortion. It appears that the Chinese version is more closely following the Taiwanese version. Just hope this version doesn’t follow a couple of other plot points that I really hated in the Taiwanese version as I really disliked the hero for most of that drama.

Re-watched the first episode of Go Go Squid with subs and so far it’s a winner. It’s going to be painful waiting for each episode to air and for subs.

Yay! Looks like Viki is subbing Go Go Squid! Loved the book and looking forward to the drama.

    Contemplating if I want to start it right away or wait until more episodes come out

      Unfortunately I couldn’t wait and am now starting episode 3 (unsubbed of course) since I read translated copies all of the books in the series I kinda already know who everyone one is and the general plot. Will rewatch once the subs are out to see what I missed!

        LOL If you couldn’t wait, then that means that it’s good??

          So far I’m really liking it. Yang Zi fits Tong Nian’s bubbly personality and I even like the Li Xian as Han Shang. I was a little worried when the episode count jumped to 41 (as I don’t think Stewed Squid With Honey had enough material for 41 episodes) but read when the author said that the drama would cover more that just the storylines in Stewed Squid with Honey. So I’m hoping that the storylines (and Dt and Appledog’s romance) from Gods Left Hand and Fish Playing While Trapped in a Secret Room will also be included.

Watching Episode 11 of Abyss. This show just seems to be repeating the same plot points over and over again, with some being totally nonsensical.

Thought heroine had turned TSTL at the end of episode 9 of Abyss, but she redeemed herself at the beginning of episode 10…

Just finished Season 2 of Just a Bite. Super cute web drama that had a happy ending for all the couples!

Just finished Le Coup de Foudre. A great drama, with wonderful characters. Only negative was that the filter always made the drama look fuzzy. Enjoyed all 3 of the romances.

Oh Noes! Fast approaching Ep 16 of Put Your Head on My Shoulder and can\’t find Episodes 17-20 with subs!

I loved The Legends. All I can say is that a show that delivers on its main romance can be forgiven all of its flaws and The Legends certainly delivered on its main romance.

    From your post, I’m going to assume that no matter what happens before we get to the ending– no matter what kind of fight/misunderstanding happens between the OTP, no matter what others try to do to break them apart– that the OTP is going to survive it all and have a happy ending and I can watch the remainder of the episodes in peace knowing this bit of info?? I need to know!!! lol I’m currently 1/3 of the way through episode 47 (of 56) and just cruising my way through and will probably finish the drama either tonight or tomorrow (my timezone)

      Feel free to watch as the main romance has a happy ending. Hero/heroine remain completely devoted to each other until the end. Unfortunately, episode 54 is a complete incoherent mess but the hero survives. Version I watched only had 55 episodes.

        Whew!! Okay 🙂
        I can deal with finale episodes being incoherent messes (say hello to every flippin’ Kdrama finale episode ever… As for C-dramas, I’m lookin’ at you “I Will Never Let You Go” a.k.a. “Legend Of Hua Bu Qi”), just as long as the OTP is together in the end– you never know with wuxia dramas lol

      Episode 56 of your version should be very similar to the episode 55 of the version I watched – both show the same happy ending

      Spoilers – Spoilers – Spoilers

      Final scene of the hero/heroine together shows them walking hand in hand in the market where the hero vows to follow the heroine to the ends of the earth, the final scene in the drama is extremely weird and shows the 2 grown children of the hero/heroine (played by the lead actors)

Just finished reading You Are Still Here by Xin Yi Wu and now I\’m impatiently waiting for Viki to sub the drama \”Never Gone\” which is based on the novel. Drama started airing Nov 6 and stars Elvis Han

    Odd sense of humor when you put it that way. If it were the mother-in-law…

With 100 Days My Prince wrapping up, I thought I\’d give The Beauty Inside a try to fill the coming void. So far I\’m really liking it.

After Ep 13, I\’m gonna be ticked if Moo Yeon ends up being the CP baby\’s father (but I think that\’s where the show is going) as he acts waaay too subservient to have ever fathered a child with her.

For those who like anti-heroes, the Thai drama “My Life is to Kill, My Love is for You” (“Cheewit Puer Kah Huajai Puer Tur”) has an interesting one in it’s hit man hero. I’m at Ep 5 and liking it.

Really enjoyed episode 6 of 100 Day My Prince. So do you think Hong-sim\’s brother is playing a long-game and is secretly working to destroy the King and Kim Cha-eon for killing his father?

Wonderful ending to Thirty But Seventeen where everyone got a great send off (well except Ri-an). Glad uncle turned out to be a great guy. Show is one of my favorites for 2018.

    By uncle, I meant Seo-ri’s uncle not Chan’s (but his uncle was a great guy too).

Yesterday\’s episode of 100 Days My Prince was much lighter in tone than last week\’s episodes. Yay, found my replacement for Thirty But Seventeen which ends today.

Familiar Wife-While it’s clear that Joo Hyuk remembers his other life with Woo Jin, it’s not clear that he has any memories of a life with Hee Won. So why no stress from living with an almost stranger

    I’ve watched the first 4 eps and he already had a fight with her about his parents. He’s also not glad she is rather spoiled but he seems to still think she is the better choice for him.

      I had to laugh when in today’s episode he stated that Hye Won was a “little self-centered”. If that’s what a “little self-centered” is like, I’d hate to see someone who is completely self-centered.

    I also think it would be a great twist if the homeless guy turns out to be him from the future.
