“Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms” Review: Will forever now be one of my favourite C-dramas of all time

Overall Review:

A mystical and compelling xianxia drama that has indeed done the original novel justice. Throughout the course of this drama, it will take you on a journey that is both heart-warming and heartbreaking, thanks to its amazing cast, breathtaking cinematography and fantastic decisions made post-production. Such components make Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms possibly one of the best C-dramas in recent years.

Hello everyone and welcome back! Today I am super excited to share with you my thoughts on this amazing C-drama Three Lives Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms which I had finished a while back. I do hope that once this drama is released with complete subtitles, that it will gain even more popularity amongst Asian drama fans, because this is indeed an example of what Chinese dramas are capable of. I will admit, I’ve been quite reluctant to write this review since I am exhibiting severe withdrawal symptoms, but it is indeed about time I shared my thoughts on this beauty I came across by accident.

Let’s finish this.

“General and I” Review: An angsty and dragged out adventure that left my hopeful heart drained

Overall Review:

A drama that built potential initially due to its source material and hired cast, only to end with a bitter taste of disappointment in the mouth. With its sloppy editing, unprofessional production choices and dragged story, General and I will leave you screaming and sighing in agony, especially if you’re aware of how the original story went.

As many has discovered with this drama, so much hype surrounded this one, simply because of its original novel, and the popularity our two main leads have in the C-drama industry. However, of course with most highly anticipated dramas, there is such high expectations, too high to the point where the fall downwards is just painful to watch unfold. With General and being the most anticipated starting C-drama for 2017, there was much to love but sadly, resulted in much to cringe and despise.

Let’s close this once and for all, shall we?

Hello and welcome everyone to the 30th and final day of this challenge! Wow, what a journey this has been for the both of us! What I’ve learnt from this challenge is 1) It is so hard to blog daily, keeping up with new content to talk about and share with others and 2) trying to think back into much older dramas in order to not only share with others, but to also remind yourself of the hundreds and hundreds of drama we’ve all watched in the past. I guess what this challenge has shown is that if you do set your mind to it (which was for me to post daily in response to this challenge) you can indeed achieve.

So, let’s finish this.

Well well well, where do I begin? There are just so many out there, where do I begin even? To ensure that I don’t end up rambling and ranting on, I will cut this list down to just 3 (originally I had about 5-6 on this list xD)

Hello and welcome back to Day 15 of the Asian Drama Challenge! We are halfway already!!! How even?? Anyway, let’s jump right into it.

Drama you watched in full, but it was a waste of your time in retrospect

This question today does pose a challenge, since I’m one of those people who tend to drop dramas if they don’t hook me in from the first couple of episodes. But, I guess this question gives me some time to reflect on which dramas at the end of the day, really did waste my time now that I think about it.

Welcome back everyone! It’s Day 11 already?? How…Anyway, today’s question is gonna be fun fun fun (if you can’t tell, that was spoken with sarcasm xD)

Drama pairing that you thought would have great chemistry, but they didn’t

Following yesterday’s question, today’s asks about the opposite, and I’ll try to explain why the following pairings just didn’t meet my expectations. There are quite a couple of pairings out there whose chemistry is indeed questionable, but the ones below are more of the recent ones that I can think of.
