Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 19

Hey everyone, it’s lovely to see you all again. Today for Day #19, our question is:

Drama that started your obsession towards a particular actor/actress

For those who have followed the blog for quite a while now, I’m sure you can guess who my choice might be (at least in terms of actress more so than drama) since I perhaps obsess about her more than it is necessary. She has been an actress that I have adored for years and someone who I am sure to follow for many more years to come.

Hey hey~ It is day #17! For today’s question, it’s:

Your favourite sidekick character in a drama

Today’s question is super super fantastic because a while back, I had posted something similar onto Dramafever. Now, I can dig it up what I wrote back then, and add/subtract anything for today’s answer. Hooray!

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.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 14

Hello and welcome back to the blog! For today’s question, it is:

Drama villain that you loved to hate or sympathised with

To settle on one memorable villain is slightly difficult, as some dramas actually take the time to try and develop backstories for them, which tends to be a neglected aspect typical of any drama villain. As for the two that I list below, they are just a small representation of some drama villains that I’ve come across which have stuck with me all this time.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 13

Hey~~ Today’s question proved to be my biggest challenge yet…because I rarely watch series that would feel great as a new asian drama adaptation, and most movies I feel that are good, should just stay as is. Anyway, today’s question:

Western series (or a movie) you think could be adapted into a drama

After seeing recent adaptations such as The Good Wife succeed in Kdrama world, I was thinking along the lines of something that could be at times serious like Vampire Prosecutor yet still funny and quirky like Goblin is right now. And that’s when I remembered one of my childhood favourite US series.

Hello my lovely readers back to the blog. Hopefully, some of you won’t kill me after reading today’s entry xD

Actor or actress you dislike for reasons you can’t explain

Now, I’m not someone who seems to have an opinion on everything, so to be honest, this list was slightly difficult to put together. To ensure that I don’t start an uncontrollable rant, I’ve condensed this list to 2 actors and 2 actresses (hopefully that ain’t a lot in retrospect)

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.

Welcome everyone back to the 10th day of the challenge~~~ Today’s question is:

Drama pairing that you thought wouldn’t have any chemistry, but they did.

When I saw this question I finally rejoiced! Happy to know that the question is a much more light-hearted one. Thinking over the question, there were a number of pairings that I was certainly doubtful of, but was most certainly proven wrong about.

Geez, is it just me or are these questions getting harder and harder every day? Here is Day 8’s question:

Worst case of Second Lead Syndrome you’ve experienced.

The worst one???! Uhhhhhhh can I push this a little and give a couple? How about three cases? I just can’t settle with one. And let’s be honest, there are thousands of cases of SLS out there so everyone is bound to write something different for this question.
