Those of you who follow the blog know that I am a huge fan of well done Chinese (mainland) drama. Something about the pacing and unique cultural characteristics of their common tropes just does it for me. It also doesn’t hurt that the majority of their leading men and woman are a tad bit older. Not that I don’t openly admit that I have biases many years younger than myself, but sometimes it is just nice to enjoy an age appropriate lead.

Because life is just too short to watch 50 episodes of something that is the drama equivalent of a Valium. Continue reading

Looking from the outside in, those who watch Asian dramas seem like a peculiar people. I mean, why watch shows in a different language when there’s plenty of good stuff in English? But there’s all whole new world waiting just outside the usual Netflix fare.
I present to you, ten things people who watch Asian dramas (especially Kdramas) aren’t afraid to do.
So I was right. And I was wrong. Yes, I’m going to talk about the Husband first and get that out of the way so I’m free to talk about the families, which was the real heart of the show. For this reason, I’m not disappointed. In fact, I’d name it my favorite of 2015. That doesn’t mean I’m not blindsided.
