LCVD: Searching for Love (Chinese Language Lesson)
Learning chinese via dramas – first lesson ♥ Look for the 2nd lesson next week, Saturday! Mark yo calendars.
The following lessons are just for fun, but I do hope that some of you can pick up on some Chinese through these memorable quotes from asian dramas.
In wuxia epic, Legend of the Condor Heroes, Ou Yangke and Mu Nianci were brought together because the Jin emperor kidnaps the two, MNC and OYK endured those long nights exchanging deep conversations. Basically OYK falls for MNC, but knows that there’s no way she would like him since he’s the “bad guy” antagonist, so he says this to her.

In the Chinese Boys Before Flowers, Let’s Watch Meteor Shower, Yun Hai (leader of F4) composes a sweet love poem for Chu Yu Xun in class. She reads his poem over his shoulder as he’s writing it and curiously prods him what it’s for. Taken with surprise, Yunhai stutters that it was his school essay on how much he loves the big sea.
