Chinese Paladin 2005 (chinese)

Another period like fantasy drama that not many may like I think. But who cares, I enjoyed it though the ending suckeeeeed for me >_< The summary described it perfectly in one sentence. 'It starts off sweet and light hearted but ends with plenty of tears.' sigh Well, it wasn't really that bad but it's tragic and I totally don't like sad endings. I'm one of those who go for happy ever after though in reality, that's not always the case.
Well another show starring hu ge, and this time there's crystal liu. She starred in return of condor heroes 2006(roch) version also. She did a good job there and on this one as well. When I first saw her role in this series, it took me aback truthfully. Cos in ROCH, she was the quiet and heck care type but for this, she was initially shown as really cheerful and outgoing and i was like whoa, this is totally different. You could say her xiao long nu character was stuck in my head.
This show on a popular rpg game of the same name. So you can expect lots of special effects. Many might not like it cos it looks fake, and i'm admitting this as well, but if you heck care on that, then you'll enjoy this because for me, like i said, it has character growth or rather development. And there's so much drama that it made me pull my hair out. I was like, man please when are those two gonna get back together. When they seem like they're back tog, something happens. sigh And in the end, you can more or less guess how they ended up from my earlier rants. -_-
But I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I had no idea of the ending of course so was enjoying myself until I began to get a bad feeling for the end but no matter, it was an enjoyable show. And now, they seem to be having a new release, chinese paladin 3 actually. not sure if there's a 2 or not, too lazy to check. But this one is set 50 years before chinese paladin. hu ge is starring but his co star is different, I forgot her name but she was guo xiang in ROCH 2006. So you should know who she is. Those of you who watch i mean hehe. well enjoy all.

The Young Warriors of the Yang Clan

This is somewhat different from what I usually watch. It's a chinese historical drama. I usually don't watch these kinds of shows cos I suck at history and I find it kind of boring. But this show, though at times I have to admit I forwarded a lot of areas, I was captivated by some as well. I'm usually attracted by the character development in stories and this one had it.
It's mainly about the Yang family. (They seem to be quite popular) Well, it's about them mostly and the women in their lives and the problems the court is facing and all. I wouldn't really have watched this too if not for a particular actor whom I like :P Hu ge (well that's how he's known as anyway too lazy to find out more.) He's the 6th brother in this show, Liu lang. He looks really sweet when he smiles and all.
Well anyway, like i said, the character development sealed this drama for me. There were times when I was smiling along with them, or feeling angry, jealous, tearly and all. It's even funny at times. i didn't notice myself doing that until an episode came to an end. A particular part near the end made me all choked up and teary and believe me, I'm not one to easily get teary eyed.
It was during the battle at the golden beach (that's the name i think) There are so many sons in the yang family. 7 to be exact. All went for the battle. Only two returned home. sigh The way they were killed, godd The way the youngest, 7th, brother died especially made my heart break. I was too full of emotions then.
But with the good, there are the bad as well. For me, I felt the ending was too rushed and that I didn't feel the story complete at all. That's because one of the sons, 4th, actually survived but he never gets to meet his wife at all. Instead he loses his memory and marries the enemy princess. -_-" i think if they had put in some details towards the end as well, maybe it could have expanded to one or even two more episodes. Oh well.
This show, I found it on veoh so you might want to see there and don't worry, there are subtitles for those who need them like me. It's complete and online. Enjoy!

My Sassy Girl Choon Hyang/Delightful Girl Choon Hyang (korean drama)

Well after so long of feeling lazy, I've finally decided to write again. ehehe and as the title goes, I've watched that drama. Actually I've been watching tons of others as well and completed them. It's just I was too engrossed with watching to update here on my views and thoughts BP
hmm I don't know how to describe this one. I mean I enjoyed it and all but let's see.
Well, our hero is transferred to high school where our heroine studies and let's say, their first impression of each other is not good. But due to some events,(hilarious ones^_^) they get married grins and our heroine starts to have feelings for him. But alasss, our guy is in love with another girl, an older childhood friend. sigh and then into the scene enters the CEO of a famous entertainment company and our story progresses.
I enjoyed this series because the characters grow as the story progresses. Our guy seems really useless but near the end, he actually becomes quite hot and capable ehhehe I was entranced the future him:P I also liked how our strict and stern CEO actually became soft towards our heroine. And they would have made a fine couple if there was no hero there hehe but our CEO can be quite villainous at times too. Our hero's childhood friend does a good job as well and she actually turns out to be pretty decent as the series progresses.
But though I did enjoy myself, I have to admit that i skipped out maybe 2 or 3 episodes. There was a little too much drama for me, more than I could take :P and the next episode led me to a few yrs later and I enjoyed myself again. It's a good show and helps to occupy our time if you're free that is. It has action, romance, drama and comedy. What more can one ask for? I watched it at mysoju but I think you can also find it on dramaclick. That's another site that has tons of korean, jap, chi, tai, dramas, movies and anime.
