[First Impression] In Youth (趁我们还年轻)

With a doubt, In Youth is completely dominated by the artists from Jaywalk Studio. It surprised me that while Qiao Xin is the female lead, her screen time has been scarce compared to any of the other Jaywalk Studio artists. But, the drama is produced by the agency, so it makes sense for it to promote and show more of their people. And while this may be a disappointment to some people, I don’t mind it. So far, I’m much more interested in the all of the characters. And, I actually quite like the drama centers around them rather than the female lead. It makes the story more interesting and makes room for more character development.

[Review] I Will Never Let You Go (小女花不弃)

I was super excited about the pairing of Ariel Lin and Zhang Bin Bin. The two are amazing at acting and looked very good next to each other. But overall, the drama did not do them any justice. I was disappointed at the development and plot of the drama and its characters.

[Review] Goodbye My Princess (东宫)

This drama is probably the first drama to ever make me feel all sorts of emotions. I have never ever loved and hated a drama at the same time before. Watching Goodbye My Princess was like riding on a roller coaster, lots and twists and turns and ups and downs. And even though the drama had tons of angst and painful moments, it was still an outstanding and unforgettable drama.

Just an FYI, this review is going to be a tad bit longer than the usual ones I’ve written…

[First Impression] The Plough Department of Song Dynasty (大宋北斗司)

I actually found this drama by accident and decided to try it because of the crime-solving and mystery content. I am surprisingly pleased by the drama so far, though mostly because of Zhang Yu Jian!!!

And no… This drama has nothing to do with farming, despite its name. Sigh…

[First Impression] Goodbye My Princess (东宫)

p2520082797

Based off the romance-tragedy novel Eastern Palace by Fei Wo Si Cun. Goodbye My Princess is led by newbies Chen Xing Xu and Peng Xiao Ran. So far, the pacing of the drama has been quite fast and you get to know lots of the conspiracies that are going on between the two kingdoms. But I am very much enjoying the drama because of the two leads. Even though they’re new to being leading characters, the chemistry between them is amazing!
