“我好生的苦.”* Some words just stick with you and this one did because the character was so heartbroken when he said it. So that's how you pick up vocabulary and sayings in Mandarin, when you see people suffering so much it sears into your brain. 😆

Episode 31 is the most heartbreaking yet the most impactful episode of Wonderland of Love.

  • Translation - "I am suffering greatly"

Taylor Swift music = Boyfriends and breakups

My type of music = Bloodbaths and dismemberment

Speaking of which you need to listen to The Hu and if you love it you are my people 👇

I think I read a racist thing from Canada this morning

Rather than demand articles such as these to be stripped off the Internet, perhaps we need to resist the impulse to label groups of people and understand the reason behind the hatred and anger.

I watched Death's Game after Lee Sun-Kyun's death, and it made me really reflect about the consequences of a suicide on the survivors. A stellar story in eight episodes.

@Sollenbum Yeah I'm looking forward to that one. The plot seems batty, though. At least the novel's!

Episode 41 of Joy of Life is a doozy 😵😱

Also, if you want an emperor who is scary as f*** get Chen Dao Ming.

3 Body Problem vs Three-Body

In which I compare Netflix's with Tencent's (China) adaptation. This issue is non-spoilery. Part 1 of 2 because I wrote a freakin' long essay.

I'm now trying to decide what to watch next and looking at the current slate of dramas, it'll probably be continue #TheLegendofShenLi and start #BlossomsInAdversity. Though if I want to be more ahem, responsible, I should pick from this list I created for myself 😛
