Yang Mi and Her Conflicted Look

That is Yang Mi and this is the story of why I’ve watched several of her dramas.

Yang Mi is an actress from Mainland China and has acted in numerous dramas and movies.

I’ve watched her in modern dramas and also in historical/fantasy dramas.

I prefer her in historical/fantasy dramas. Why? I just feel that she looks more regal when she acts in historical dramas. She has taken main roles in dramas, made them her own and you could feel the conflicted feelings of the role she’s playing….and it’s very real, the tears and all.

I’ve watched her in The Interpreter, Three Lives, Three Worlds:Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (or Eternal Love), The Negotiator and Legend of Fuyao.

And I hope I’ll be able to watch more of her work in the future. 

A Tale of Love and Modern Witches

Today I am going to talk about a summer Korean drama that I am half way watching.

Witch’s Love

It is called Witch’s Love and like most other summer K-dramas, it has a simple and light story line, packaged in 12 episodes. Let me tell you that even for a 12 episodes drama, the kissing scenes are too many to count and it actually surpasses past K-dramas with more high profile actors.

For those who are planning to watch this drama and have yet started, please stop reading because what I’m about to say will contain spoilers.

So we know that ChoHong lost her powers and in order to get it back, she has to kiss her fated man.

The moment she heard the ringing bells while wearing the elf looking ears, she was on the phone with JaeWook and Director Ma was tapping her shoulder at the same time. Who is the ringing bells meant for?

When she got to kiss Director Ma, the rose sign on her chest flickered. What does that mean? She hasn’t gotten her powers back yet at that time, and she was supposed to get her powers back instantly after getting the kiss from her fated man, but she did not.

And we know later on when she fainted and JaeWook gave her CPR, she got her powers back when she was at the emergency department. 

What was the flickering rose all about?

Maybe JaeWook wasn’t her fated man but Director Ma is, and when her powers came back to her while she was at the emergency department it was really a delayed reaction kinda thing?

I don’t know and I can’t wait to find out the conclusion.

Moonshine and Valentine

I had the chance to watch this Chinese drama not too long ago and I would say that I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline, regardless of what other people has said of the disappointing, open-ended ending.

I do have a small beef in regards to the storyline.

The story was about a girl who was destined to be the cure for a hybrid child. Now it was understandable that the only method to harvest the needed organ was by death since it was the ancient time. And at every incarnation, the girl was destined to not live a long life anyway. So in modern times like now, I would have thought that the girl (if she knew about her long-forged destiny earlier on into her relationship with the guy) would still be able to save the guy by giving a part of her organ (in this case the liver, and it is known that a liver could regenerate back to its full size if a part of it is transplanted) and not have to give up her life.

That was what I understood anyway but it seems later on the storyline conveniently mentioned that the girl’s life essence was the cure for the hybrid child. So why go for taking the liver out?? Is the life essence based in the liver?? I don’t know really.

But it was a good in-between drama to watch.
