Today’s question came from Jules: which drama did you complete despite not really liking/enjoying it? (and why?). Quite challenging especially with me. I don’t drop many dramas and I endure it. What do you do? Do you just drop it? Or do you endure the pain like me? Let us know.
No, I did not read the book but I got curious when my favorite Instagrammer said the novel was to her liking. But after watching this, I don’t think I need to read the book. Then again, I might read it to support my birth country. Yes, the author is a Malaysian but I heard she resides in the US. I need to do my research better. Fortunately, The Ghost Bride got picked up by Netflix and they released it during Chinese New Year week. Good timing, I suppose. Shockingly though, I feel like it is missing the true Malaysian oomph. The casting is mainly Taiwanese though I recognize one or two Malaysian actors. This is where they spent their budget most. Everything else seems mediocre to me sadly.
- Sooo better late then never right? Hope everyone had excellent holidays and it’s ready to tackle hug 2020. However we are here to talk about dramas that made us happy in 2019. I had a fairly good drama year. Very few dramas made me angry and I adore many. Nelly?
- Nelly: I thought I did not watch many 2019 dramas but I am surprised I saw 26 Korean dramas this year! How??? Out of 26 dramas, I only was disappointed by three dramas, Mari. So yes, I adore many, too, Mari.

Can you believe it? I have never seen Autumn’s Concerto and I know many of yous rave it. I was not move by Vaness Wu’s hotness and that it is a Taiwanese drama. But, as you all noticed, I have started watching old dramas and dramas that I did not get to watch before. Joy brought up this movie one time and I thought hmmm, maybe I will brave myself and try it. Believe me, it was not easy. It is now September and I am finally hooked on it. I started back in May but I just could not get passed Ren Guang Xi’s cockiness along with his cheesiness. And as you can tell, this drama is growing on me and I am in love!
My success HIStory 1 watch prompted me to continue with HIStory 2. In this season, there are only two stories with each story contains 4 45-minutes long episodes. Unlike the first one, the stories in the second season are better told. And unlike the first one, I did not set up tweet threads. I got lazy. I also did not like the stories. They were so melo to me. The acting in the first story was poor, too. They OTP looks quite awkward together.
You have no idea how happy I am to finally able to start HIStory series. The HIStory 1 is not available on US Viki version but being in Malaysia, it is available. While I am currently sick and under quarantine, I thought I should use my precious time and watch the series. I tweeted the show heavily and I separated my tweets by episode. Each thread contains photo spoilers but don’t worry, I don’t spoil much in words.
