    Line Walker Episodes 6 to 10 thoughts

    How about we start with a game? This was the question posed to the audience (HK residents can use the TVBfun app to send in their answers)   So the question is – Help Cheuk Sir to find the five undercovers!   1. Bau Seed (Raymond Lam) – Confirmed to be an undercover. But I…

    Line Walker Episodes 1 to 5 thoughts

    I think I’m starting to learn that if I keep expectations low, I’ll enjoy a series more. Line Walker started last week and even though there wasn’t a really explosive first episode, the rest of the week provided some excitement and a ‘hook’ for the audience to continue watching – provided that you don’t mind…

    Fortnightly Roundup No 20 – 1 September 2014

    I’ve been in full blown fangirl mode for the past week or so. HAHAHA. Been pretty restrained on this blog but probably less of that on Twitter. Like… 3 of my last 5 tweets were related to him in some way. LOL.   Hello, you. Expect more of his face around this blog soon.  …

    [Upcoming TW drama] Bad Romance with Annie Chen, River Huang, Melvin Sia and Yang Ching

    ed: This drama changed its name to Boysitter. The Chinese name 魔女搶頭婚  remains the same.   A few days ago, TVBS announced the cast of its upcoming drama Bad Romance (魔女搶頭婚) – Annie Chen, River Huang He, Melvin Sia and Yang Ching! This will be the 5th drama produced by TVBS (the first four being –…

    Jasper Liu and Jolin Chien attract 600 fans for SPop Magazine autograph event (Bromance alert!)

    I think I’ve been complaining about Pleasantly Surprised aka Love Myself or You (喜歡‧一個人) for a few weeks now and it usually consists of comments revolving around situations that doesn’t actually contribute to the plot, too much fan service (it’s too much for me because I’m not *really* a fan of Puff Kuo’s Kai Qi…

    [Upcoming TW Drama] Love Cheque Charge aka Happiness Voucher with George Hu, Phoebe Yuan and Xie Kun Da

    OK so what is with this title? Surely they will change it eventually right? But they already registered their Facebook fan page with this name so… I’m referring to 幸福兌換券 by the way, aka Happiness Voucher – the new SETTV daily drama announced a couple of weeks ago (news here & here) when George Hu,…

    Fortnightly Roundup No 19 – 15 August 2014

    These past two weeks have been the calm before the storm. I’ve just been keeping up with the weekly dramas and waiting patiently for next week when The Virtuous Queen of Han and then Line Walker air on the week after! It doesn’t help I just spent the last two nights trying to figure out…

    [Translation] The Way We Were Ending Theme by Eric Chou

    I tend to multitask when watching TV so if a drama can make my eyes glue to the screen, that means it’s gooood LOL. The Way We Were aka 16 Summers (16個夏天) crept up on me with its breezy feel, likeable and identifiable characters that feel real. The ending theme in particular, is very touching.…

    Songs from The Virtuous Queen of Han + photos from promo event

    With The Virtuous Queen of Han aka Wei Zi Fu (衛子夫) finally getting an air date – August 20 (!), we finally get to see the opening theme, one of the sub themes plus a preview of the ending song! (Cfensi has heaps of information about this drama) Maybe I’ve been craving for a new Raymond…

    Chef Nic Episode 1 – Fan Bing Bing x Paris x Souffle

    I’m totally showing my age here by saying I grew up watching Nicholas Tse. Or that I watched him grew up… one or the other. Having famous parents might’ve brought him many criticisms early in his career, (and I was probably one of the doubters who saw him as just another ‘2nd generation star’, much…
