I don’t write too many reviews but this show was uncharacteristically great and caught my attention from Episode 1. Alright, I was also watch for Zhang Han as well.

Perfect Couple Episode 4 Recap – Jin Yu Liang Yuan (金玉良缘 )

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 11.31.30 PM

So I had to debate real hard whether or not to do this episode today after a full work day and then some. It’s a great episode, but it’s also mentally exhausting to recap Tong Hua’s stuff since she’s a master of prose and quips. Here goes. Episode 4 Recap

金玉良缘 – Jin Yu Liang Yuan Perfect Couple – Episode 3 Recap

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 11.31.30 PM

Between work, writing my own novel, recapping a show I find myself exhausted on a sunday. Recapping a good drama takes time, espcially one that makes me laugh.  Also, I probably should get out more as I resemble more or less an albino bat than human being at this point. Hopefully people are enjoying this show as much as I am. But without much ado, recap 3:

金玉良缘 – Jin Yu Liang Yuan Perfect Couple – Episode 2 Recap

Screen Shot 2014-04-25 at 5.55.40 AM

So, currently, I recap at the pace of a erratic snail on a slow sunday. Not because I don’t love the shows but there are a limited number of hours in the day and this post was finished at 5AM today.  But it shouldn’t get in the way of your enjoyment of this Jin Yu Liang Yuan.  I was surfing the net today and i found a blogger (http://www.thehungryegghead.com) who has mini-recapped all the way up to Ep. 9 the last time I went onto her blog. So please check that out! I find that the blogging community is a wonderful place and it’s always good to see everyone enjoying the same thing.

Okay. Episode 2 Recap.

金玉良缘 aka Perfect Couple – Episode 1 Recap

Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 11.31.30 PM

I nearly died from laughing after watching the  first 3 fantastic episodes of Perfect Couple. Words can not adequately describe how much fun it was to watch physical and verbal comedy done to perfection. While the first episode was slightly more introductory, the rest of them were just pure fun to watch.Tong Hua is a master of letting her readers visualize her story, which is one of the reasons why all her novels are hugely popular. Of course, her stories are always vastly complicated and always leaves the reader in a state of indecisive contentment (I will probably write more on this at the end of the recap)  I want to share my joy of watching a show that I didn’t press fast forward in at all, it’s something that should be enjoyed not just by those who speak Chinese but anyone who is a fan of Tong Hua. Now I’m off to watch the next 3 episodes and will try to recap as soon as I can!

Lan Ling Wang, 兰陵王 Episode 16 Recap

Screen Shot 2014-01-21 at 9.57.58 PM

So one of the best and most intense Yu Wen Yong scenes comes to mind in this episode. At this point, anyone who reads my blog knows that I basically think that Yu Wen Yong is the best character in this show. I love this scene to bits, and for good reason.

New Drama: New Detective Alliance – 新神探联盟 / Xin Shen Tan Lian Meng

 

6-130F411333B21

For anyone familiar with the legend of Bao Qing Tian, a genius judge , Gong Sun Zhe his clerk, and Zhan Zhao the fighter/detective know that this is one of the best bromances in Chinese Lore. Those three were the best crime fighting team in ancient china.  This story is basically going to follow a detective team comprised of Bao Zheng, Gong Sun Zhe and Zhan Zhao.  The men in this drama are not bad looking, I have to say that they are downright hot, all you have to do is look at George Hu in modern garb (Ignore the rooster hairstyle). Also, Dramapot wrote a pre-watch intro too, it’s entertaining and informative. Go over and peruse that site when you have a chance (I did and I have a lot of respect for her, she has a pretty extensive collection of goodies on dramas/news/variety on her site too.
