The wait is over and boy, am I glad the drama is finally out of the dungeon! I was looking forward to the drama since the day it was announced, and the names attached to the series day by day only makes my anticipation grew. Although it took two years and a half for it to finally see the light (aka us the viewers), Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace (如懿传, lit, Legend of Ruyi) arrives at the right time as I am craving for some harem drama, and I count this as my luck :’) As I have been away from blogging for quite some time, these posts will be my personal notes to keep track of the things happening in each episode for future references, should I feel the urge to rewatch certain scenes. So…dig in!
I’ve been wanting to watch this cdrama for a while now, but I finally pushed it up the list and finished it 🙂 Jin Dong, together with a whole group of experienced casts, what’s not to love? And I must say that I’m sooo glad I placed my priorities well – frankly I didn’t expect myself to like it, but the moment you get into it you kind of see the thought they put into producing this through the scenes, lines and lyrics. Overall, I feel that a group of inexperienced actors wouldn’t have been able to pull this off; kudos to the casting director for this because they are just so good. Wow. All of them gave impressive performances which made them feel like real human beings and not mere characters.
I know, there is literally only 3 months left to 2017 – at this point a post for 2016 seems pointless, hah. As unbelievable as it sounds, this post has been in the works for the longest time, just that it never made its way to the ‘publish’ mode. I was actually contemplating to forget about it for good, but in the end I decided to put it up regardless of how late it turns out (I apologize).
Yup, you read that right. I’m not really sure what brought upon the sudden decision to watch a Chinese drama again after more than ten years, but I blame it on the nostalgic feeling I have these days. I have to be grateful that a great drama is the one bringing me back into the wonderful world of Cdramas, and it is no other than Nirvana in Fire/ Lang Ya Bang! Just when I think I’m going to wait until I finish watching Nirvana in Fire before embarking on another drama, I made a mistake of clicking on Love Me, If You Dare/ Ta Lai Le Qing Bi Yan‘s banner on Viki. Oh, no…
