2020 is soon ending, and I think we can finally say “thank goodness”! Just like last year, we are hoping for a better year ahead and I like holding on to this type of hope.
But as usual, dramas have not left my life and I’m continuing to watch as much as I can in the little spare time I have. It has been a very busy and tiring time period for me in my personal life, but also in my work life.
A lot of the Korean dramas have been a hit and miss for me and I haven’t been following them religiously…in fact, I’ve been finding them a chore to watch each episode as it releases just because I saw ep 1.
But one drama I’m highly anticipating is True Beauty 여신강림 which is adapted from WebToon! It stars my favourite Moon Ga-Young 문가영 who is such a versatile actress as well as the popular Cha Eun-Woo 차은우 (right) and rookie actor Hwang In-Yeop 황인엽 (left).
If you haven’t read the webtoon, I’m implore you to download the app and read it now! It is super popular atm and the fact that they’re making a drama when the webtoon isn’t finished is saying something right?!
Other Korean dramas I’m mindlessly watching atm includes Start-Up, The Spies Who Loved Me, Penthouse: War in Life, Private lives, My Dangerous Wife, Kairos, Tale of the Nine-Tailed and Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol.
BUT, one new one came out recently which seems to have a lot of potential starring Kim Sa-Rang. This one is called The Goddess of Revenge 복수해라 – mysterious, thrilling revenge plot. Lets hope this won’t flop for me.
Chinese dramas on the other hand have been super interesting especially with the current one starring Tang Yan 唐嫣 called The Legend of Xiao Chuo 燕云台. You can watch it via YouTube with eng subs here.
I love Tang Yan as an actress especially from her previous dramas including The Princess Weiyoung, Lady & Liar and My Sunshine, to name a few.
It also stars a popular HK actress Charmaine Sheh 佘詩曼 who has been rocking up quite a popularity in Mainland China for Story of Yanxi Palace.
And one last one is a modern Chinese drama called Something Just Like This 青春创世纪. It stars Wu Jing Yang 吴谨言 from Story of Yanxi Palace.
Its a romantic love story between two childhood friends who never expected it and already, I like the first ep!
I honestly love how they’re posting all these episodes on YouTube for free! And the quality is amazing! Keep it going!
