Han Qi Luo (Barbie Xu),an extremely shy art student went to the same college as Chen Ling (Vic Zhou),a popular play boy. By chance one day they met at a park when CL asked HQL for direction to a hospital to visit his friend who was injured in a bike racing incident. Hurriedly HQL drew him a map, unknowing that she was drawing on the back of one of her sketches. She ran off before he could thank her. He then noticed the sketch of a mother holding a baby and was touched. In school HQL was sexually harrassed by a teacher and CL came to her rescue. They began to grow fond of each other but each of them had a secret past that needed to be addressed and overcome before they could accept and love one another freely.

I loved this drama. I just finished it and it made me laugh and cried. Some parts were even eerie. This is definatly one of my new faves!

Ling is one of my favorite characters. I loved his silly playboy attitude. Just don't get on his bad side. His character definately touched me. My heart reached out to him when he cried.

Qi Luo is a shy, quiet girl who steers clear of men.. but she is drawn to Ling. Eventually, because of Ling, she starts to become more confident in herself around others. She ends up having to face her past again. I love how through all the dramatic events, this character becomes stronger.

Tong Dao is mysterious and creepy.. This guy really freaks me out. However, somehow you can't help but feel bad for him and his past.

there is a great site here with lots of info and pics of this drama.. but beware.. there may be spoilers.

I would definately watch this drama again.

Smiling Pasta

Smiling Pasta

Xiao Shi is a girl who has gone through many short relationships, 17 to be exact, not one lasting more than 3 months hence, she was cursed with a three-month curse. After being dumped by her 17th boyfriend, the world looks grimmer than ever. At that time, a famous idol, He Qun runs past, bumps into Xiao Shi, and they end up "kissing" on the street. Paparazzi swarmed by and to avoid a bad reputation, He Qun’s manager declared Xiao Shi as He Qun’s girlfriend of one year and fiancĂ©e. Thus, a love contract was made. This story is about how the couple learns to like each other after having disagreements in the beginning, as well as fighting the injustices the media throw at them. Will Xiao Shi finally break her 3 month curse?

This was a fun movie. We definately loved it for our second drama. I loved how they bickered right to the end.

My Lucky Star

Ok.. I needed a place to share all the dramas I have watched and love..

It all started with

My Lucky Star:

Like the boy who cried wolf, Xia Zhi Xing had lied one too many times. So when she did tell the truth, nobody believed her except for the most unlikely person, Zhong Tian Qi, a runaway young master of a jewelry empire. His belief in her inspired her to become a real jewelry designer instead of a lying, scheming jewelry con artist. In the process, she taught him the real value of jewels that he is destined to inherit.

This was the best thing I had ever seen.. I laughed, I cried.. and so did hubby. I definately recommend this drama to anyone. After this I started looking up Jimmy Lin and other shows he may have been on. This started an obsession with asian dramas..

The scene that stands out the most was when Ah Xing was in the hospital.. and she wouldn't let the nurse take the bed away.. I sobbed so bad my husband put his arms around me and was trying to console me.. Then the next part had me laughing.. great show!
