Welcome back to the 6th day of the Asian Drama Challenge! Here is today’s question:
Your favourite older actors/actresses
I really love this question, simply because this is a rarely considered question. I’ve come across so many actors and actresses over the years who I have fallen for despite the age gap. To make sure I don’t ramble away with this post, I’ve limited to 3 actors and 3 actresses! (It was still really hard to limit this list!!!)
Hey all! *pindropping silence* I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday spent with your family and friends!! I know I know, possibly no excuses could ever save my ass for the unprecedented hiatus from blogging and from life in general. It has been one wacky second half of 2015 both in my uni life and also in my work life. All I can kinda say is that my random disconnection from the outside world kinda paid off, gifting me with my first 2 HDs EVER IN ALL OF MY UNI LIFE (it has been 3 years too long I’d say) soooooo I guess the break kinda paid off?? I don’t really want to say that leaving my blog like that was a great decision from the start, but this is kinda what happens when ‘life’ takes over. Uni just drained my desire to seek for dramas to watch as enjoyment, and so no drama-driven juices to write with was present, which in turn didn’t really give me enough ‘stuff’ (for lack of a better word) to blog about.
However, over the last 2 ½ months or so (once I finished the uni semester really) I just had the random desire to just watch anything, which led me to go on a random tangent of watching just Chinese dramas, one after the other. Sure, there was some Korean dramas in between (which were indeed much needed once you see this heavy list) but if you see literally have an overview glance of the list, it is literally just Chinese dramas. And each one is just heavy, heavy, HEAVY! *awkward silence* …You’ll understand once you see the list, trust me.
So, the main reason why I was convinced to make this long post is simply…I was just not in the mood to write a review for each and every drama that I’ve watched over the past 2 months. After starting and not finishing multiple multiple reviews over the past month and a half or so, I knew that enough was enough; I was definitely not gonna get any of these reviews out by the end of the year, full stop. And so, in order to give justice to some of these dramas that were in fact quite good and enjoyable, this post is going to be published as both a way to say “hey, I’m still alive” and also a way to say goodbye to a wacky, crazy and a clusterf*** of a year FOR ME! Ummmm, so without further ado, let’s get on with it!
