Happy New Year! There’s plenty of dramas premiering over the next few days, so I thought I’d cover them all in the same post. Which ones are you looking forward to watching the most?
On a side note, I just started watching time-loop drama Reset, and it’s pretty good so far. It’s not the thriller I was expecting, though I do like how it spends time developing the backstories of the other bus passengers as well. Plus, it’s only 15 episodes long – what can go wrong? Try the first episode here.
Mirror: A Tale of Twin Cities 镜:双城 – 2 episodes every Sunday to Wednesday beginning Jan 16th on Youku, Tencent (WeTV)

Based on what has been released so far, it’s pretty apparent that they expect this to float on fanservice, fanservice, fanservice, and fanservice… because… you know… based on the stills below half the scenes are necessary to float a good story line…
Love is More Than a Word 识汝不识丁 stills today. Starring Jiang Zile, Yan Zidong, Lu Zhuo, Chen Yichen, and Kong Chuinan, those who tire of the usual heterosexual pairing of dramas can give this a go.
Love is More Than a Word 识汝不识丁 stills again. Starring Jiang Zile, Yan Zidong, Lu Zhuo, Chen Yichen, and Kong Chuinan, not really planning on watching this at this point but the images are acceptable so meh… Continue reading →
