  1. I’m (slowly) watching Rookie Agent Rouge – only 2 episodes so far but I like it!
    Can’t wait til When A Snail Falls In Love airs, for obvious reasons haha XD


  2. Not too much going on in dramaland in October! :O Good cause it is period for… midterms!! joke aside, Real Man and Dad Where are We Going are shows I would watch if I ever have some free time ^^ Thanks for the list!


    1. No worries! But, actually though… a bit of a lull. I am actually planning to watch Real Man (if I have the time). I don’t even have time to catch up with Happy Camp right now ><


      1. I think the drama turned out pretty good for such an very abbreviated version. To get past the Chinese censors, a lot of pretty innocent “couple” scenes were cut. I ended up using released images, watching BTS videos, and finally reading the novel to “fill in the blanks.”


        1. Tell me about it! So much due right now… still so distracted by all the pretty people though 🙂

          Have you been watching any dramas recently?


  3. Yay that Rookie Agent Rouge is doing well in rankings 🙂 looking forward to Memory Lost and Forensic Detective Qin (with zhang Ruo Yun). The trailer for When a snail falls in love hasn’t quite enthralled me yet but am pretty sure will watch it if it’s dubbed 🙂


  4. 10. The Most Distant Course

    should really My Own Swordsman according to official English translations.

    It was first aired in 2006, and along with iPartment is among China’s most successful sitcom, (with My Own Swordsman being more popular and more original). It has re-aired many times since, and has being a staple for summer TV line up in non-major channels.

    here is a little taste:
