Synopsis:

Momo(Rainie Yang) has shut herself off from the world ever since childhood. She is so quiet and reserved that it borders on agoraphobia, or fear of strangers – and her world is full of strangers, because her only friends are her sister and her childhood friend Jia Sen(George Hu). Momo centers all of her shut-off dreams and love into a manga character, Prince Kasaba. But all that changes when Zhuang Jun Nan(Jiro Wang), better known as Mars, an immensely popular idol star, enters her world.  Mars has abruptly lost all his popularity and been disowned by his company, so when his manager is looking for a place for him to stay he ends up renting a room from Momo. When the two collide – the contained yet proud and stubborn Momo and the loudmouthed, brash, kind-hearted Mars – strange things begin to happen, and Momo begins to wonder…could Prince Kasaba exist in real life?

To Get Her Episode 11 Synopsis+Screencaps

vlcsnap-830223

You know, To Get Her is the first drama to really show off how ethereally gorgeous Rainie Yang is. She’s always portrayed such vivid and loudmouthed and energetic characters that the focus has always been on how cutesy she is. But she’s older now and her role as Momo is one completely made up of quiet and containment and slow, graceful movements and facial nuances, and she’s really quite stunning. She’s not only showing a new, fantastic subtlety in her acting(something none of her other roles gave her the opportunity to consistently do) but her short haircust and reserved character bring the focus more to her features, which I’m beginning to realize have an ethereal, stunning beauty.

Upcoming Taiwanese drama: Quietly Falling in Love with You/Knock Knock Loving You

knock_knock_loving_you

I have to say, I wasn’t that interested in the upcoming Ming Dao/Dylan Kuo drama Quietly Falling in Love with You when I originally did a post on it after a reader requested it, but it’s looking better and better, particularly now that it’s clear that Dylan is the main lead(I’m not a big fan of Ming Dao). Populasian just informed me that the the title has been changed from QFiLwY to Knock Knock Loving You, and sure enough Dramawiki has a recently updated page under that title. It will premier April 12 and Populasian also directed me to the rather lovely CTS site for it.

Synopsis:

Cheng Xue Ge(Dylan Kuo) had lived in the life of comfort and never knew the dark side of human nature until his father’s company bankrupted. In order to restore the company, he must learn from his archrival, Yao Zi Wang(Wu Ya Xin), the ins and outs of being a shrewd, successful businessman. While working closely together, he slowly realizes her coldblooded ruthlessness was only a front to protect her battered heart. But before he could sort out his feelings about her, another man, Zhao Guan Xi(Ming Dao), already has his eyes on her business talent and her hand in marriage.

Black and White

Vic Zhou finally, finally, finally has a new drama coming out; it’s been on my radius for a while ever since I first heard of it and went into mad ecstasy because a)my favorite Taiwanese actor is making a drama comeback b)he’s finally taking on another serious role after the brilliant and amazing Mars and c)the plot sounds to die for.  It’s finally premiering April 11 so I thought I’d make a post on it.  It’s called Black and White and is about hot cops is about two cops who are forced to team up together to take down the dark forces riddling their city.

Synopsis

Pi Zi and Ying Xiong are two cops who are as different as day and night. One does nothing except for drinking coffee and living a luxurious lifestyle while waiting for information from dubious sources to crack his cases. Another believes law and justice are the pillars of society and is constantly on the street catching criminals… a little overzealously for his superior’s liking. When a case brought these two top crime solvers together, sparks fly and a little light peeks into this dark city where the nation’s President is on friendly terms with the local mafia and people are killed while drinking milkshakes.
