Hi My Sweetheart Episode 3 Recap

by staples

Once Bai Chu Jie leaves, Da Lung’s roommates appear, teasing him about his first kiss being with BCJ. The odd thing is, they don’t ask what happened or assume the two are dating. They just take the news at face value. Is it just a girlfriend thing to want all the details?

They tell DL that he’ll have “bad luck” from now on because he’ll see her face whenever he tries to kiss someone else. In order to dispel this cure, they say, they’d better go see the three beauties at the dance club. So they pick Da Lung up (again) and carry him off. This repeated carrying would be stupid if not for Da Lung’s comment:

Now it’s just cute.

Hi My Sweetheart Episode 9 Recap

by staples

I realized that the 4-8 part II recap had a bit of episode 9 in it as well, so I’ll start where that leaves off: Hseui Hai has challenged Xue Zhang to a drinking contest. BCJ doesn’t want him to, so HH starts picking apart the holes in their relationship. This gets BCJ all riled up and the four of them (including the idiotic Cristina) begin the game.

Hi My Sweetheart Episodes 4-8 part II

by staples

I thought that doll was a good place to leave off.

When BCJ finally wakes up again, she asks her mom about Da Lung. Mom tells her all about the England business and when Bai Chu Jie gets upset about it, Mom yells too. “Everything I’ve done for you is your own good!” She yells. But Bai Chu Jie is tired of this.

Hi My Sweetheart Episodes 4-8 part I

by staples

I feel terrible. I left all of you guys hanging forever! But I’m back, and instead of jumping over the episodes I already watched, I’ll give you a brief-ish summary of what’s happened so far. I have the episode 3 recap on my old computer, so it’ll be up in a bit.

Okay, so when we left off, BCJ decides that she’s going to compete in the Miss Sweetheart competition, too. She doesn’t tell Da Lung this, though.  One night, you see Da Lung finishing helping Mo Lee practice. She’s about to ask him to dinner or something when BCJ charges in, grabs him by the arm, and drags him out. Ah, true love.

PS Man Review

by staples

from top left, going clock-wise: WEN SHENG HAO, BIANCA BAI, LAN CHENG LONG, SONIA SUI

The first Taiwanese drama I’ve seen that goes to 21 episodes, and for some good reasons (I’ll rant about those in a separate post so there aren’t any spoilers here).

ACTING: Lots of people gave Sonia Sui and Bianca Bai crap for their acting (they’re both model-turned-actresses), but I wasn’t too discouraged. I think I’m just bad at discerning bad acting from a weird character. To be honest, I think the roles they played called for weird things. For example:

Hi My Sweetheart Episode 1 Recap

by staples

Before the recap starts, here’s a brief summary of what this drama is supposed to be about:

Nerdy rich guy goes to school. Meets and eventually falls in love with the scariest punk-girl in school. Her mother opposes the match because the girl is rich and the rich guy hasn’t told anyone he’s rich. So, the mother creates a kind of misunderstanding in which the rich guy thinks he’s been dumped and the rich girl thinks the guy left without a word. In order to get back at her, nerdy rich guy transforms himself into not-so-nerdy rich guy and becomes her boss at a radio station in order to give her grief. Sounds interesting, right? Okay, let’s begin. . .

(and next recap will have screen caps, i promise. I was too lazy to go back and get them for this episode . . .)

Prince Turns to Frog

by staples


CHEN QIAO EN, MING DAO, SAM WANG, JOYCE ZHAO

Thoroughly average, but enjoyable.

ACTING: The actors were good, and all the characters had good chemistry with one-another. After watching Joyce Zhao be the “tough girl” in Smiling Pasta, I appreciated her acting ability more as she was the soft, girly-girl here. The most amazing part was when Zhao’s character had her little “mental breakdown.” Her acting there was superb. Chen’s acting during her amnesia was superb as well.
