New TW drama for me.  I actually haven’t finished it yet, but better to write my thoughts now before I forget them.

Premise is good.  Different from usual scenario where the villain/s are all vying for money and power.  In this case, the four dukes are all refusing to be the successor of a very large empire.

The heroine is not a cry-baby.  Not really having a lot of problems with people really.  Her obstacles are more of situations…

They had their happy ending in the middle of the series, so you know there is still something to come.

I really liked it until it has reached the latter part.  The grandpa and his loyal butler has suddenly become a caricature.   The scenes became so silly, I started fast-forwarding through them.  I think they meant it to be over-the-top silly.. but really, I felt like I was watching a very bad comedy.

Of course, the person that catches my eye is the secondary character.  I’m always a sucker for guys that are charming and attentive, which is what Cui is.  =)

Yes I know. I’m guilty of posting only online test results and so on. Whatever happened to the tv drama reviews. We’ll, I’ve been so busy watching Arashi TV shows, concerts and just plainly being obsessed with the group that I haven’t touched any of my drama. My to-be-watched list have been piling up =(

Anyway, I’ll be watching “Romantic Princess” soon. It’s a taiwanese drama with Wu Chun as lead. Hmm, why is this on my priority list? Primarily because my copy was just borrowed from a friend. Don’t want it to look like I’m never gonna return it, so might as well watch it already.

Ahh… yes, I watched a drama. It was so forgettable I forgot all about it. “The Prince Turned into a Frog”. A taiwanese drama also. It’s not really bad. I actually liked the initial parts. Problem is, I just found the main guy to be too baby-faced. And he’s supposed to be a CEO or something of a very big company. And he’s supposed to be a meanie. But he looks like a high school kid. A pretty boy, mama’s boy -looking high school kid. So, yes, didn’t enjoy it much.

What more, I got disoriented with the story I think 1 or 2 episodes prior to the finale. Throughout the story, this guy, a recovered amnesiac cannot recall anything about this girl he supposedly loves. He hates her actually. Then suddenly, he’s proposing and asking for another chance, etc. An I was like, “huh?! did I miss an episode?”

O well.. until next time
