C-DRAMA REVIEW: My Sunshine

My Sunshine

After finishing Murphy’s Law of Love, I was still in the mood for Chinese drama; thus I came across a director’s cut of My Sunshine. Huge mistake because it left me confuse and led me to think the characters were bipolar.  To end this confusion, I went on ahead and view the full version of My Sunshine.

My Sunshine warms the heart with its romantic love story of Mo Shen and YiChen. Fate allowed them to crossed path in college, but tested their love toward each other until it decided enough was enough, and intertwined their paths again. They never really forgotten one another; rather absence makes the heart grow fonder. Despite people pulling them together or apart, they kept their love simple and blissful.

He YiChen, a man of few words, appears quiet but greatly makes up for it with his actions. A character, whom I had a difficult time understanding at times because he does not verbally express his feelings. He’s more of a man of actions even though his profession requires him to use his eloquent speaking skills to win court cases. One of his shinning traits would be his love toward Zhao Mo Sheng.

Mo Sheng’s bubbly personality warms up the story line and makes it hard not to like her. This drama would be dim without her radiating her sunlight onto the darkness. Her cheerful self makes her a kid at heart. Yet even the sun have some sun spots with one of her being her withholding herself from telling the truth to YiChen, which tarnished their relationship in the beginning. Later on she does a better job by being honest to him.

As for the actors and actresses who played as the OTP, they captured the image of a blissful couple. They knew how to act in a way that allowed us to better understand them base upon their words and actions.  We can definitely tell there’s chemistry between these two.

While My Sunshine thrives on its romantic story line, it can be a little stretch out. There was a reason as to why the director’s cut was created, to shorten the time we need spent to watch this drama. This is the typical Chinese drama with it’s 30+ episodes, so keep in mind the story line may be too long to those who are used to 16 episodes kind of drama.


Do I recommend this drama? Yes, to those who enjoy a good romantic story.

C-DRAMA REVIEW: When a Snail Falls in Love

When a Snail Falls in Love left me with quite a first impression that I ended up marathoning the whole series or the current episodes already released online. I kept telling myself “patience is a virtue” as I waited for the last two episodes of this crime thriller. Although I have been spoiled for the ending, I still waited for English subtitles because I wanted to see how it all ends.
Straight from the start, this drama intrigue viewers by its unique title, When a Snail Falls in Love, which simply draws us in. It’s a figurative saying; it’s not about an actual snail and lion. In this case, the snail is Xu Xu, who is clever when it comes to psychoanalyze a crime, but slow when it comes to love. Ji Bai is the lion in terms of his fierce and brave ability to pursuit crimes and love. Two polar opposites; yet they make a perfect crime solving duo.

Previously on Seven First Kisses, fairy godmother Choi Ji Woo granted Soo Jin’s wish of getting her first kiss by allowing her to meet seven mysterious men with “kiss” number one given by Lee Joon Gi. Just right after the kiss, she came back to present time and met her handsome boss, Park Hae Jin aka potential kiss number2.
EPISODE 3:  Park Hae Jin  Due to her using her cell phone during work, her boss inquired her to work overtime with him. When she walked into his office, she expected there to be lots of works to be done; rather she ate dinner with him. He seeing it was already late said he will take her home.

FIRST & LAST IMPRESSIONS: Medical Examiner Dr. Qin (C-Drama)

I intentionally meant for this to be a first impressions post, but somehow it led to the lasting impressions and review of this crime action Chinese drama. The title of this drama was what initially drew me into watching it since I am a fan of the American television show, CSI (Crime Scene Investigators). As luck would have it this drama is very similar to CSI; yet different in its own ways. Similar in that the opening song sounds very much like the one for CSI with several different beats and it follows Qin Ming (played by Zhang Ruo Yun), a chief forensic investigator for the Chinese police as he solve crime cases. The different in that its very fast pace.
