Female Prime Minister (Fashion)

The gorgeous color combinations of Lu Zhen and Dan Niang’s outfits in Legend of Lu Zhen 陆贞传奇 (or as previously dubbed Female Prime Minister) are a sight to behold. My personal favorite was the cobalt blue and bright yellow outfit, which is my modern interpretation below:

TaecGui Couple Meets Nichkhun (WHAT IN THE WHAT?)

Screen Shot 2013-06-15 at 5.26.36 PM

On Global We Got Married, Taecyeon and Gui Gui finally meet 2pm member Nichkhun at their house-warming party. If you’ve been watching WGM, recall that Gui Gui commented on Nichkhun’s good face (but also Taec’s nice body) when asked about her ideal type of guy:

Ever since the first episode, Gui Gui has been making it an ongoing joke to the hilariously entertaining dismay of her husband-to-be, Taecyeon. Knowing Gui Gui’s sense of humor from Taiwanese shows she’s been on, it’s obvious she mentions Nichkhun to tease and to get a reaction from Taec. It has made a lot of fans wonder, what if Nichkhun actually showed up on Global WGM. What would Taec and Gui Gui’s reactions be?! Well that episode has finally arrived! Nichkhun arrives to the housewarming party along with 2pm members Woohyung (yes, its Jason from Dream High!) and Joonho. And Gui Gui could not contain her surprise and delight. Meanwhile, Taec sighs in surrender.

What I really like is how how, after her initial delight at seeing Nichkhun, Gui Gui shows her respect for her husband and doesn’t try to embarrass him in front of his buddies. When asked by the other members how she felt about Nichkhun now, she says “Oppa and I are married now.” Aww.

By the way, she makes the boys do the “10 out of 10” dance in this episode. Sooo funny.

SOTW: “The Person You Love Isn’t Me” by Gu Feng

LISTEN TO SONG | WATCH THE MV  | LYRICS

Gu Feng, who’s that, you ask. Truthfully I had no idea until I fell in love with this song. What got to me was this:

就算我也知道你会怎么说 (Even though I know what you would say)

其实你爱的不是我 (In fact, you don’t love me)

其实你不想我难过 (In fact, you didn’t want to upset me)

Gu Feng is a Chinese singer – actually he’s pretty talented, apparently he composed the lyrics and melody of this song. The song itself was introduced to me as insert song in Wu Xie Ke Ji (the Unbeatable 3 series I’ve covered in my previous two posts!). Read More…

“Wu Xie Ke Ji 3” First Impressions

With a beginning so lackluster, I was disappointed. But by episode 3, the story and hijinks pick up rapidly. Note: this is not a recap of any sort. Also take note that Wu Xie Ke Ji translates to Unbeatable, Wu Xie Ke Ji is simply the title of this series in Chinese.

Reasons to watch “Wu Xie Ke Ji: Blue Dreams” (pictures below)

x Zhu Zi Xiao and Sun Jian, the male leads, are just about the funniest guys ever…and so cheeky (and Zhu Zi Xiao is a hunk which is a plus)

Turns out the guy is alergic to teddy bears1 perfuming the bears…

xUnique plot: This is not a story about a rich ceo who falls in love with a poor girl. This is about the dreams and struggles of a new generation of post-college grads in China. This is about a man who goes from a unemployed college grad to top Creative Director of a large company overnight, who meets a Harvard grad unemployed girl (later becomes a lowly-paid white collar worker in the same company). Essentially the boy’s sudden prominence to “gold-collar worker” is every college grad’s fantasy life, but also just a light romantic/suspence/workplace/comedy series that anyone can enjoy.

x the gorgeous cinematography – love the panoramic view of the city landscape and slick camera work in general

x as the story picks up, the dialogue improves and gets funnier and wittier with every banter

attempt to pull the whole 007 gadgets thing with the glasses… plan shattered. literally.

x Although this drama focuses more on workplace politics and struggles, the few romantic scenes are such a treat! Zhi ZiXiao and Han Chae Young are obvious OTP, but Gui Gui, who plays the spoiled company’s daughter, and Zhu Zi Xiao’s flirting scenes and things she has up her sleeve to get to Zhu Zi Xiao is so adorbs! I can’t help but ship them too.

x for every cliche there’s a non-cliche.

x Korean-Chinese language barrier isn’t an obstacle for Zhu Zi Xiao (chinese) and Han Chae Young (korean) who interact naturally as if they are speaking the same language
