Anne: Joyful Lunar New 12 months Everybody!

To rejoice the New Yr, I went to my aunt’s for an early New Year’s Eve evening meal. Of study course, the evening can not stop with out a round of mahjong with the elders. In the close, I nonetheless dropped $15, in poker chips. This is why I do not gamble, I was just not born with that variety of luck. 

Despite expending most of Saturday at my relatives’ and invested the relaxation of the week seeking to dig myself out of a gigantic gap at operate (which I only finished up getting plenty of done to peak at the ground higher than), I did finish the two dramas that have occupied my evenings for the earlier number of months. 


Certainly, I did finish this drama forward of it can be Viki launch date (mainly mainly because I have a persistence difficulty). I will say that the ending is very gratifying, and it does conclude. There is no risk of a 2nd year or a continuation. Whilst there is however no rationalization as to why He Yun and Shi Qing received pulled into the loop, I guess they were being hoping to go for the even bigger indicating of staying psychologicalky stuck in in time thanks to a lifetime occasion. And the only way to get out of it is to explore the real truth, for both partners, the more youthful a single physically trapped and the more mature one mentally arrested. 

The ending alone may possibly be too perfectly put together for the variety of drama that it had been since the commencing. And in a perception, the entire reasoning appears to be so uneventful. But in the individuals that have to live through it, the effect is substantial and life altering. It is one of the greatest dramas I have found, and we have only barely entered 2022. 

Undesirable and Crazy

Following waiting an full 7 days for episode 12 to at last air, I’ve saw the finish! This display, palms down, has the very best bromance I have at any time found (it isn’t going to make any difference that it can be technically a gentleman with his possess self). Soo Yeol welcomed K into his lifetime with open arms, and when we will not see K appear in “individual” yet again for the rest of the episode, the ending kick has all the hallmarks of K. The most important archnemesis, Shin Joo Hyuk, was ultimately caught and “dealt” with. 

While it was not a finish shock at how Joo Hyuk finished, it is obvious that she by no means planned to continue to be in jail for any duration of time. She always adopted the path that would get her what she desired, and she essential Soo Yeol to get her shut to the guy she needed. This female does not disappoint. The ending fully sets up for a continuing season.

Shining for A single Thing

I essentially started this due to the fact it retained popping up on my iQiyi feed. I didn’t assume much from it, but I discovered the display to be a single of the cutest “faculty” dramas with an intriguing start out. Lin Bei Xing is a woman in her thirties who was dumped 10 days in advance of her wedding day to her boyfriend, Zhan Yu, of 8 many years. Now, explain to me how does a gentleman used 8 yrs with a girl whom he did not even like? In her endeavor to acquire him back again, she attempted to remind him of their high faculty romance, she dug out her old cell cellular phone. She realized that when she deleted a message from this aged cellphone, she is zipped back to her large faculty year. Even so, she is immediately zapped again into her present existence around 6:30pm just after her university entrance examination, when a college mate of hers, Zhang Wan Sen, dies from slipping off the lighthouse. 

Confident that she can relive her childhood and superior her daily life, she at last is in a position to go back far more than enough to commit about a calendar year right before the school entrance exam day. She made it her purpose to save Wan Sen from dying so she can continue to be in her “new existence”. She finds out about all kinds of stuff about her classmates. She “sees” her ridiculousness of chasing immediately after Zhan Yu all by way of large faculty and outside of. She helps make new mates and lastly commenced to recognize the position Zhang Wan Sen plays in her existence. Super sweet, super sweet, really light and fluffy, and with a thriller to reveal. Like it!

Have a good week all people! Pleased New Yr!
