First Impressions: Stay With Me


Bingewatched to Ep 13 and sadly, don’t think I am going to continue! Found the first eight to ten episodes really addicting – I liked Li Wei Wei being an unapologetic b$&ch at work (high pressure, high stakes yo!) and Wang Kai is a good actor. He managed to convey the love-hate relationship Chen Yi Du had for Wei Wei (internally of course!) with his micro expressions especially when he saw she was marrying Huo Xiao (Kimi Qiao) or all the moments he was struggling with himself whether to be there for her or just walk away. Joe Chen, too, did well in her part and she does both the Devil Wears Prada and 23 year old girl parts equally well – she like ZLY and Janice Wu,  is another one that doesn’t annoy me when she is acting a lively or bubbly role(although she is older).

Most of the big budget movies filmed by huge directors are released during this period and some of them end up being the #1 movies of the year when it comes to box office gross (notably: Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons ($215 million) and The Mermaid ($553 million), both by Stephen Chow).

Second Impressions: The Legend of Flying Daggers

Second Impressions: Shuttle Love Millennium

Up to Ep 20 and can happily report that the show keeps getting better and better! The editing’s done well (couldn’t tell that Puff Kuo was a last minute replacement for Yoo Inna)  and the juxtaposition of 2016 vs 1936 is also executed seamlessly without being cheesy. I am still allergic to Janice Man but it’s being overcome by the awesome double dose of Wei Da Xun and the woeful elegance of Puff Kuo.
