Looking back on 2011 – Chinese dramas

25 Dec

Sealed With A Kiss: The premise of a man blackmailing a girl into becoming his mistress in order to exact revenge for her father’s sins might not sit well with many but if you’re a lakorn veteran, this would not faze you a bit. It has all the elements of a typical slap-kiss – Greed! Betrayal! Revenge! Abuse! Manipulation! – and I was expecting a standard lakorn with the only difference being the characters speaking Chinese but I was pleasantly surprised by nuanced characterization and tight plot. lengthier than I thought

The Fierce Wife ep 16 cut

28 Feb

Yes, as you can see, I’m totally into TFW now though sadly it’s only showing once a week so I’ll have to patiently wait for the next episode.

I love this part of episode 16! Even though An Zhen slapped Wei En in public (ep 13) after finding out about the affair, there ain’t no satisfaction in that slap. In fact, ep 13 = a lot of rage so I shan’t recap (unless someone requests? I guess I don’t mind doing a summary and curse Rui Fan some more along the way). It takes someone like Rui Xuan to put Wei En and her brother in place and I actually applauded after this scene. Haa, I need to be less invested in dramas.

Watching The Fierce Wife is pretty rage-inducing. You’d wanna bitch slap Rui Fan and Wei En senseless, throw them in front of a train and then feed them to the sharks. Yea, that’s how much hate they deserve. Yes Wei En, I know your parents died divorced (? I’m not sure) and you have issues, but sleeping with your cousin’s husband (and said cousin let you stay in her house out of the kindness of her heart) then asking the husband to divorce his wife because ‘you have no one else’ just makes you a selfish pathetic slut. After seeing poor An Zhen getting bullied left right centre by those 2, I was very happy when Rui Xuan didn’t mince her words and gave Wei En a good dressing down at the restaurant. I can’t remember her exact words, but Wei En was essentially labelled a dirty thing and bacteria. Yea, apt description there Rui Xuan.

And Rui Fan. Arg. So, according to you, since your marriage only has responsibility and respect left, you think it’s pointless to hold on to it further. You and Wei En have true lurvvvvv going on and since your wife has a daughter and supportive relatives/friends, while poor Wei En doesn’t have anything (even her cat died! awww, sob sob), it’s a mystery why your wife refuses to sign the divorce papers. So you decide to be helpful by grabbing your hysterical wife’s hand and force her to sign the papers – while she’s in a neck brace on the hospital bed. Wen Rui Fan, you and your slut mistress are so incredibly selfish it boggles my mind.

ok, breathe………. I guess the reason why TFW evokes such strong emotions from the viewers is because the characters are all realistically portrayed. This is something that I could imagine happening to people around me or even to ourselves.

I’m looking forward to episode 17. The tables are starting to turn, what with Rui Fan losing his job and his parents picking on Wei En. On the other hand, An Zhen gets help from Tian Wei and gains confidence. Sui Tang is gorgeous when dressed up!

The Fierce Wife

25 Feb

I skipped to episode 15 of The Fierce Wife because I couldn’t stand to watch the bastard of a husband cheating on his wife with his wife’s cousin. It’s probably for the best because 15 minutes into episode 15, I want to crawl into tv-land and give Rui Fan and Wei En a good punch in the face… yea, I might have destroyed some furniture if I watched it from the beginning.

An Zhen is such a sweet woman and I do get why she’s trying so hard bear with her husband’s affair and salvage the marriage but gahhh, please hurry up and realise that your husband is a jackass who do not deserve you at all.

*finished ep 15*

oh god, Rui Fan you need to die right now. Your wife is in the hospital from a car accident and you can’t be contacted because you’re too busy comforting your mistress who’s crying over her fucking dead cat???? And when you finally visit your wife in the hospital, YOU BRING HER DIVORCE PAPERS. Good job, you lowlife.

Thankfully, next episode promises less teeth gnashing. Tian Wei is around to cheer An Zhen up and looks like it’s the beginning of An Zhen learning to stand up for herself.
