2013 End of Year Drama Review

I cannot believe that the year is coming to an end already! It feels like it was only just the start of 2013! Oh, how time flies! It just makes you look back and appreciate all the goodness that has come out of this year. It comes to the time for an end of year review and I really do appreciate the goodness that dramaland has given this year.

2013 has been one drama year for me (every year is a drama year for me!), though it was definitely much slower than 2012. I was actually quite slack with my drama watching for the first half of the year and only began to intensely drama during the second half of the year. With a heavier school load, I had no choice but to lighten up on my drama watching and this also meant choosing wisely with what I wanted to watch, which didn’t work out quite so well with some drama choices. But I did manage to do a lot of live-watching this year, which is something that I am very proud of. I also managed to watch a 73 ep drama, which is another thing which I am very proud of. I looked back at my 2012 End of Year Drama Review where I said that one of my resolutions for this year was to watch more dramas outside of hk-dramas but I don’t think I accomplished that. Anyhoo, I’ll just blame this on school which, really, is just an excuse to make me feel better of not achieving my goal.

There were quite a number of misses rather than hits this year which is quite disappointing but there were also a number of great hits. I didn’t get to see all the dramas that I wanted to see this year but I can always catch-up on it once I find some time in life. However, in generally, I think this year was quite a miss in terms of dramas. The reason why I was quite slack in terms of drama watching for the first half of the year was that there was any dramas that called out for me to watch it and furthermore, I have read reviews which have not been so positive about those dramas. It was during this half of the year that the dramaland picked up its game, especially in the k-drama verse.

I am going to have an even heavier school load next year which means less drama time for me but it won’t stop me from dramaing! Obviously school will be my priority but nothing is going to keep me away from dramas and blogging!

For this review, I am rating all of these dramas together for this year so the ratings will vary to the ratings on my ratings page. The ratings will be out of 5 stars. Continue reading

My Opinion on Season of Love: Episodes 11-15 (Autumn)

This was definitely my favourite “season” of the drama, and not just because my personal favourite season is Autumn. I especially looked forward to this season because I loved the cast, they were especially appealing to my tastes. I was most looking forward to Vincent Wong and Nancy Wu as a couple, ever since I shipped them in Gun Metal Grey. Also, what made this season really interesting is that it was unpredictable from the very start. I didn’t know in what direction the plot will head nor did I know who Chau Sang will end up with. In fact, in terms of the guy for Chau Sang, I was in a whirlwind on which guy matched her the best!

I loved the creativity about this season because I have no recollection of seeing such a format used in any TVB drama that I have watched (or, maybe that’s just because I have a bad memory… ). I loved the time-travelling concept of heading back and having a second chance. It worked but it wasn’t without flaws as it was quite messy with its line of events. However, once you realise that there is actually three stories and the moral behind the season, everything will fall in place and would actually make sense. You really have to dig out the meaning behind what is happening to actually understand this season. It is one of the heavier seasons that requires you to realise that connotations that are present.
