[No spoilers at all!]
I managed to marathon the foodie-paradise drama, Let’s Eat. Its light and frothy story-line was a perfect antidote for the rich and heavy Secret Love Affair. And it was hilarious. And the soundtrack was almost perfect. (The last few episodes got a bit ballad-y. Which, personal taste, not my favorite music genre. But it was brief so I got over it.) And it had the cutest little dog-actor ever!
But once it was done I had no idea what to watch next. I couldn’t re-watch Secret Love Affair… well, I mean, I could, but that way lies madness. (Which for me means reading far too deeply into scenes and spinning out possible scenarios, then getting invested in those scenarios, and then getting disappointed when my scenarios don’t happen. Which with Secret Love Affair is pretty much a guarantee.)
So… I’ve started watching In a Good Way — a Taiwanese drama, which, I have less experience with. (I’ve dipped into a few, but haven’t managed to finish them.) And I’m loving it! It’s a gentle, coming of age story, and there aren’t any villains and the main girl is adorable and the main guy is very watchable, with these lovely, soulful eyes and a calm kind of centeredness to him. I can see why he’s made the drama-watching blog-‘verse explode.
(Funny story. I thought the first male character we meet, Ren Wei, was the male lead. And I was confused. He was cute, but not that cute. Then came the opening credits and Liu Chuan staring soulfully at the oblivious Jia En and then I saw it.)
And, it has an adorable little dog-actor! So, obviously I chose wisely.
In blogging news: I must, must, must get a review out for Miss Korea. It’s been long enough that I feel guilty. And I really do need to update my “About” page. This is me hoping that saying I need to do it will lead to me actually doing it. We’ll see if that particular Jedi-mind trick works.
Two more days ’til the next Secret Love Affair!
