In Time with You Review

Rating: 7/10

So, somehow an Ariel Lin fever got into me and I decided to watch her modern drama, In Time With You. The Chinese title literally means, maybe I won’t love you. Which is not a good title in English but it is the thing that becomes the main plot and frustration of the audience.

Summary of the story: Cheng You Qing (Ariel Lin) is a 30 year old career woman who finds herself aging and pretty much panics over it. Her best friend, Li Da Ren ( Chen Bo Lin) is the person who understands her the most and becomes her support over the years of their friendship. Cheng You Qing embarks on a journey of some sort to find a man she could marry after she makes a bet with Li Da Ren. Apparently, whoever gets married first will get a fat red packet (it’s custom to give money in a red packet during weddings also known as hong pau). Of course, she doesn’t meet the right guy and Li Da Ren often helps her up and comfort her at time of difficulties. Well, it’s pretty obvious from day one, we are watching a drama about a pair of best friend who eventually falls in love with each other. And I understand why it garners high audience-ship since it tells a tale of people who are friend-zoned by who they love.

Watching now: Lan Ling Wang

The newest hot drama has aired about 15 episodes by the time I start marathon-ing it. Which is good news because each episode makes me want MOAR. So we have the story of Lan Ling Wang(actual name:Gao Changgong), an actual historical figure of Northern Qi. The drama milks off the actual history that Lan Ling Wang is a great general who dies young due to jealousy from his cousin, the emperor. Rumour has it that he is so beautiful, he wears a hideous mask to avoid distraction when he goes off to war. The battle at Jinyong or Luoyang is also recorded in history where he only used 500 cavalries to rescue the city from the prevailing Northern Zhou army.

Mash-up review of Summer Jdramas

Of date, I’m watching DOCTORS 2, Summer Nude, Starman and a new player, Yamada-kun to Nananin no Majo. I’m lazy to write episode reviews in separate posts so I shall mash them all up TOGETHER 😀

Currently, I’ve watched 3 episodes of DOCTORS 2. 3 episodes have proven that it is still same old, same old. We constantly have Sagara plotting against Moriyama’s not-so-nice intentions, Sagara showing his shrewd tactics which he often enlists aid of the saleswoman Miyabe, patients of the day, and Sagara being the saviour of the day. It’s repetitive and it’s beginning to bore me. As much as I love Sawamura Ikki, the plot is not refreshing, the patients’ stories are not riveting enough. Although so, I will still keep watching for you, Sawamura-san~~

His rival, Masanobu Takashima is back as well in the form of the much hated, immature Suguru Moriyama. This time, Moriyama is expected to become the director of Dogami General Hospital as his aunt retires.
