Qing Qian Wan Li

I don’t know what the official title is yet hence putting in that for now. It actually wrapped up filming a while back already but I haven’t gotten the time to update on that after learning of the drama being true, etc. Yes, it has been a while after just some articles leaning on the controversial topic surfaced. They filmed for five months so it seemed like a longer drama than DaAi’s usual 5-episode stories? Or was it on and off, etc? Anyway, I actually read the news last year about how Jun Ya’s new project was with his ex-girlfriend, Jean Gao. (Go here.) The article title was so teasing them and trying to stir things up. In fact, many had pondered the ‘fate’ of it all. In response to the rumors, Jun Ya was already cast in that drama previously but they hadn’t begun filming yet. Later, the production team felt that Jean was really good with Taiwanese so they cast her in the leading actress role–alongside Jun Ya. So that was when tales began to weave whether the two could work together or not, because of their past breakup and all.

Five months later and it was obvious that they were professional enough to work through this production. Yet humorously, there was also news saying how they had gotten back together already hence the high spirits from both. (Click here.) Nice? Both denied through their managers. They were good friends and were able to work together professionally, that was it.

Aside from that, other cast included Nylon Chen, Enson Chang, Sharon Kao, Artie Tsao, Yuan Li Shan, and Ge Lei. (There are probably more but only those were tagged in the wrap-up party.) The drama revolved around Jun Ya and Jean’s characters from when they were 18 until 60 years old. (So changing roles or put on more makeup to make them old?) Or so one of the articles had revealed.

In one of her posts, Jean humorously disclosed that Nylon was her son. So I guess that answered with another character in the drama.

With some of people’s posts, especially Jun Ya’s earlier ones, he didn’t mark it with the drama’s names, so I won’t post it up to decrease confusion, but will update later when I finally sort it out. (Since he was working on something else at one point too.)

Golden Bell Awards 2013: Winners

I know, I know. I’m way late with posting up results. But I had to wait until I actually have time or try to squeeze in some watching here and there before I could post this up–instead of just copying and pasting stuff from other sites. Anyway, those of you who have watched or read news know who won. (Go here to read about more exciting updates from the pros! LOL!) Again, like last year, I’m posting results by the order it was announced (except for variety shows, etc).

Wow! Congrats to all winners! It was fun to watch. But what I enjoyed was the unpredictable winners versus last year’s repetitive trends. I’m not acting like a sore loser about last year. But I felt this year have more variety with winners versus last year’s one take all so it was a bit boring on that front.

Endless Love: Line 15

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

They cheated again but not some random scene, just that they were several minutes more over with repeating the previous episode’s ending scene. It’s okay though. Last episode so they needed more time to stretch the last episode. To get some things out of the way, Xin Jie got the message from Min Shuo and rushed in to talk to Jing Hao, pouring her hearts out, etc.

As for Min Shuo, he couldn’t stand it anymore after some hesitation and reconsideration. During one of the walks with Rui En, he couldn’t stand how she kept saying that Jing Hao was despicable and was only thinking of money. Not to mention how her father wanted them to get married. Though he really wanted to be with Rui En, I guess after what he’d seen Jing Hao sacrificing for Rui En, he had to say it. His conscience wouldn’t let him? ‘Cause before, he had thought Jing Hao was the bad guy too, but after that little conspiracy, he’d seen to understand Jing Hao more. He told Rui En what really happened so they went to the hospital to see Jing Hao but found his bed empty. That was when they went to the company to ask for words of Jing Hao. NoQ volunteered to go with Rui En and Min Shuo to Jing Hao’s place to find him gone.

Meanwhile, Xin Jie was seen having a meeting with her mother. She finally got the courage to sever her ties with her mother and fight for her own freedom. She was leaving and was also seeking legal help so her mother wouldn’t and couldn’t control her anymore. The mother totally lost this time yet I don’t pity her because Xin Jie never learned or received any love from her so how could Xin Jie give it back?

Min Shuo managed to persuade Rui En to head home and think up of a new plan. One of Kun Ge’s henchman approached them and gave them a package. It was specifically for Rui En, an answer to his strange comment the other day when they were captured and then released. What was inside was an old fashion recorder. It was compact but effective because it held all the evidence to which Rui En’s father had confessed to Kun Ge as to why he’d done so much these past years. The crime of Rui En’s father did not extend from the accident he’d caused toward Jing Hao’s mother. That was really an accident, and he couldn’t really be blamed. Yet what made the whole thing despicable was kidnapping Jing Hao’s father and hiding him all these years so Jing Hao and Rui En wouldn’t get married. Song Wan Ji’s reason for sabotaging the marriage was that he feared Rui En would suffer after they married because Jing Hao might abuse her or do other things to her because of what her father did–just for revenge. Yet he had miscalculated and things had gone haywire. If he hadn’t mess with Kun Ge, he would’ve succeeded. Yet the truth must be revealed after all, right?

The confrontation between Rui En and her father was really emotional. Her father’s image was completely ruined in her heart. It wasn’t just about choosing the one she loved and her father, but about ruining Jing Hao’s family’s life and then eventually causing grief for them all. Things had gone out of control and he hadn’t expected some of the dramas. But he was the driving force of the whole thing. I felt Sandrine did extremely well at that scene. She doesn’t cry pretty, she never did. But that was what made it so emotional and more realistic. After that confrontation, she left the place–with Min Shuo and NoQ chasing after her.

With so much happening and how she couldn’t find Jing Hao anymore, it was hard to blame her for breaking down completely. Everything in her life was a big joke, especially how her father was such a person. I think what she said was true though, by doing all those, he only loved himself and not her because hadn’t she suffered so much too? Min Shuo took over and encouraged her on, not wanting her to give up after hearing her devastated rant.

After disappearing for days, Xin Jie finally appeared again and even contacted them. First Min Shuo and then the others to inform them about the wedding, wanting them to come and give their blessings to the two–her and Jing Hao that was. NoQ wanted to break the phone yet it was Xue Zhe’s, LOL! NoQ said the screen of Xue Zhe’s phone was bigger? LOL!

What got even funnier was how NoQ and the gym owner were arguing over whether NoQ should sabotage the wedding or not. Yet they ended up killing each (not really but were just reacting too strongly) because NoQ was saying the gym owner wasn’t any better off than him–appearance-wise–and that the gym owner looked like a gorilla. Man, that was priceless! One of the scenes worth laughing over. They were too cute and hilarious. Something to ease off the tension with?

The wedding finally arrived and most of the key characters were there to attend the wedding. Though some were reluctant, just wanting to see some type of show or maybe voiced their objection like NoQ. Possible. Yet Min Shuo was looking all relaxed when he came with Rui En? Was he changing back to a character where he was thinking about his own happiness? Kind of impossible since he’d made quite an effort to help Rui En. Or was that another point-scoring scheme? Before anyone else could figure it out, Rui En was pulled away by Xin Jie to the dressing room. Xin Jie wanted Rui En to help her with something, which we do not know yet–not quite.

The ceremony soon started and Jing Hao was forced to play the game with the application they created to ensure that the person he was marrying would be his fated other half. Jing Hao, we know, had tossed his phone toward Kun Ge during that one confrontation so he didn’t have his anymore. Kun Ge soon reached into his pocket and fetch it for him, tossing the phone to him. So they were ready. No detection or reaction from the software at first while they waited. Jing Hao said the application was only made to seek for a dating partner, it didn’t have anything to do with marriage. But before he could say further, his phone finally responded and it was successful. He and his bride to be was indeed fated to be together.

The big surprise everyone hadn’t known about was that the bride to be was Rui En, not Xin Jie. Jing Hao was confused and so were some of the parties who had arrived to witness the wedding. Xin Jie soon appeared to explain that she had dumped Jing Hao because the application said he wasn’t suitable for her hence allowing him to be with his destined person, which was Rui En. That meant that Xin Jie was in on that conspiracy with Min Shuo when they met up that one time. He’d planned everything with her to the point of making sure everyone got together and attended the wedding that day. After learning those few details, NoQ raised his hand up to say that he had no objections, lol. As of the others, of course, they had no objections as to Jing Hao and Rui En’s marriage. One of the funniest responses was Kun Ge’s 800% support and that he announced their application had succeeded with its purpose. (Great time for advertising their product, eh? LOL!) Yet Jing Hao, himself, objected. What? Weird, eh? But he repeated his words by saying the application they created only proved to find a match for dating, not marriage. He wanted to ask others to give him their blessing instead, specifically Min Shuo. Min Shuo took up the role and asked Jing Hao to tell them how much he loved Rui En before he could give his blessings. So Jing Hao took up the challenge and told everyone present about their story.

After Jing Hao’s recounts, Xue Zhe continued with the usual questions between the bride and groom. Rui En replied ‘I do’ before Xue Zhe was finished while Jing Hao told Xue Zhe to shut up. That sort of scared him (and possibly the guests) but Jing Hao soon told Xue Zhe to finish up with the ceremony and that if anyone was objecting, he would kill them. (LOL!)  Rui En could finally smile and joke with Jing Hao naturally–like once upon a time. The funniest was seeing how hard she hugged him that his wound got affected by the force, which she didn’t care since she declared she didn’t want to let go of him again. Funny that everyone was yelling for them to kiss–and Jing Hao responded by saying like he needed them to say it. Yup, a happy ending indeed.

Some of the things near the ending were a bit rushed yet we could guess that Xin Jie had seen what was going on or at least realized some of the things after what happened so she decided to give up? Then there was Min Shuo finally understanding what type of person Jing Hao really was, so of course, he had no objection. Not to mention how small he must have felt to misunderstand Jing Hao and how much Jing Hao could sacrifice for Rui En. So he got together with Xin Jie and planned it up to the wedding. (I want to take this opportunity to praise Lin Yo Wei again. I seriously, seriously had underestimated him. Yes, I’m making up for past wrongs with scolding him and not even going back to change some comments ’cause I wanted it to reflect my emotions while watching those parts. Now, I just want to say that he seriously brought out his character well with unwilling to lose, to the point that he could resort to some other means, causing grief to others and himself. Then the genuine, concern look, later on, was totally convincing, not the arrogant, fake pitiful look anymore.) As for Song Wan Ji? Anyone felt he got it too easy after that emotional confrontation with Rui En? I did, but after watching the ending, I guess there was no other way. What else could he do, right? If the others had already forgiven him, then that was that. They could move on. Or more like if he didn’t want to lose his daughter, then he should go forth with helping them. Kun Ge was a key character in revealing everything, because if he hadn’t exposed Song Wan Ji then Jing Hao and Rui En could never be together. What I don’t get though was, wasn’t Jing Hao’s father missing like before Jing Hao told Song Wan Ji that Song Wan Ji was the one who ruined his family by running over his mother? So it didn’t make sense. Or maybe he just didn’t want Jing Hao and Rui En together but learned the facts afterward? Or did he go and investigate Jing Hao’s background already before the day? He was capable. I might have missed something and need to go back and pay attention to some details. But last thing, was Min Shuo going to end up with Bi Yun? I meant since he already apologized for being an asshole earlier and how she had hugged him at the wedding for being such a nice guy? Possible.

Endless Love: Line 14

WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

Not really that cheating with the showing some scenes that hadn’t really appear yet. But this one cheated with showing too much of the last scene of the previous episode.

Liang Ba Ba was so glad Xin Jie came home, but it wasn’t because he had gotten attached to her. It was just because he wanted her to help him find Rui En. So she broke down and begged him not to find Rui En anymore. Well, Liang Ba Ba still used his wife’s name for her so Xin Jie wanted to replace Rui En instead. Liang Ba Ba, of course, backed down when he saw Xin Jie crying and tried to comfort her and told her not to cry anymore. That was when Jing Hao came home and called out to his father. Liang Ba Ba rushed to explain that he didn’t bully Xin Jie, he just wanted to find Rui En and then Xin Jie cried so he cried as well. When Jing Hao asked her what was wrong, she just ran the stairs. (How in the world could she run so fast in those heels?) The typical and inevitable confrontation unfolded when Jing Hao finally caught up to her at the rooftop. (YUP, the cliche spot for any types of emotional confrontation.) I guess that was kind of surprising, just kind of though. I meant I would’ve expected that Jing Hao would lie to cover up his tracks and sink deeper, making things even more dramatic (thank the scriptwriters though) in the later scenes. Yet he actually admitted that he couldn’t lie to her anymore? In a way, Jing Hao and Rui En were the same, when confronted with everything already fallen into places, they would admit it instead of diving anymore. Well, after that dramatic attempt to commit suicide, Jing Hao managed to save her (and she fainted–how cliche or what?) and took her back to his place, putting her to bed.

As he was considering things over in his mind, looking at Rui En’s portrait again, Rui En called him. The sound of the cell phone ringing caused Xin Jie to wake up and eavesdropped on their conversation. What was said between them was really sad though since they both knew they could never return to what was before, mostly because they mutually know (without saying it out loud) that they couldn’t hurt Xin Jie. Rui En only had one request and that was to see him again so she could sketch an image of him to save for the future (since we all know Eunuch Min Shuo got rid of the other ones already).

As if things weren’t getting to the point of beyond hysterical already with some of the events going on, more bad news was to be delivered. Yup, their project/idea got stole and it was on Jing Hao’s head because Xue Zhe saw Song Wan Ji leaving Jing Hao’s place that one night, making Jing Hao prime suspect to have betrayed them. The big boss had every single right to be mad, even if NoQ had vouched that Jing Hao wasn’t that type of person. The banter between NoQ and Xue Zhe had escalated to another height but the mob boss jumped in, telling both to shut up. From his expression, he was ready to let heads roll. AND why was the other dude smiling like a maniac the whole while since hearing the news with the project being announced, etc? NOT Xue Zhe, but that other new dude that came at the same time as Rui En and NoQ.

Oooohhh…OMG! So we or maybe more like I had underestimated that pretentious, faking pity Song Wan Ji. He sure knew how to hide things and pretended he was in a regretting mode all these years. So he sent that dude in to spy and steal? Not to mention pinning it on Jing Hao. No wonder he was so good at planning every move. He was staying silent all along or looking like he trusted Min Shuo yet was just letting Min Shuo do whatever so others could focus on Min Shuo and hate him instead? Or he didn’t really care? (Regardless though, I swear Min Shu wasn’t that nice either, kept wanting to control others. It didn’t matter how he thought it was good for others.)

As Jing Hao and Rui En were making their way to their last meeting, both were thinking of the past. But as fate would have it (or more like the scriptwriters wanted to make it even more dramatic), Rui En was detained by a little accident with her wheelchair and fell. Attempting to get up, she was approached by some dude. Two guesses who he was sent by. Jing Hao, of course, got there first and waited until he received a call. It wasn’t from Rui En though, but Xin Jie, saying that it had to do with her mother and begging for Jing Hao to save her. (I can’t believe she was using this type of tactics, but I guess when her bridge of emotions had already been broken, she would resort to anything. It was, of course, fake because she called her mother earlier so of course they had it planned or something.) Wanting to rush to wherever it was to find Xin Jie, Jing Hao remembered of his meeting so he called Rui En yet she wasn’t picking up either. He left a message and told her to wait for him.

Well, I guess that made two of them since Xin Jie’s mother was equally surprised as Jing Hao when he demanded some answers from Xin Jie’s mother. Xin Jie actually came right out and told Jing Hao she heard it all with Jing Hao and Rui En meeting up. Just to be fair though, when you eavesdrop, make sure you know the full story before jumping to conclusion? BUT I guess can’t blame Xin Jie since she wouldn’t know what was real or fake anymore, not after being deceived for a while now.

Okay, I’m getting surprised like the second time. I meant like I thought he would feel guilty. Because of the typical main guy formula, right? Since he did lie to her in the past. Yet he said he was disappointed in Xin Jie? (Didn’t he lie to her too? So she was going crazy?) So Jing Hao just left like that. After some smart remarks, Xin Jie’s mother left as well while Xin Jie was scheming up another set of traps for Jing Hao and Rui En. At least she didn’t want them to meet up. Who else but to call that Min Shuo? I seriously think Min Shuo should be responsible for half of the troubles that were going on too, not just Jing Hao and Rui En for lying or whatever else. (Failed to mention it probably qualified as lying.) After all, Min Shuo did force Jing Hao to marry Xin Jie before he would release information on Jing Hao’s father’s whereabouts. So why should Jing Hao take the fall for this and be slapped on the slogan as an asshole when Min Shuo could walk away? Come on now.

Yup, Rui En got captured and now her father had to deal with the mess. Did he think he could get away with it and was celebrating too soon on his victory of causing Jing Hao more grief? WRONG! Seriously though, whatever he was doing always backfire on him because it ended up that his daughter would receive the punishment in his place. The person who called was, of course, Kun Ge, the mob boss (aka Jing Hao’s current boss). Song Wan Ji knew him? I meant because he had recognized the guy’s voice. OMG! I was thinking it might be some major misunderstanding yet it was true. Song Wan Ji not only wanted to cause a misunderstanding between the two parties but he actually said Jing Hao offered the deal to him? What? I actually laughed out loud when Kun Ge was asking about how come Jing Hao was the one responsible yet Song Wan Ji and his daughter had nothing to do with the whole thing and that if Song Wan Ji was trying to fool the ghosts or something (aka Kun Ge was seeing through how Song Wan Ji was just pinning things on Jing Hao). Man, I’m having a blast with Kun Ge’s phrases. I don’t know. I shouldn’t even laugh at this time since Rui En’s in danger but it was just so funny that Song Wan Ji was just trying to wing it through and push everything on Jing Hao (aka manipulating things) but Kun Ge refused to cooperate, lol. (I swear Song Wan Ji’s so much like Min Shuo or vice versa, always manipulating and wanting to make sense to convince others to do it their way.)

After hanging up on Song Wan Ji, Kun Ge called Jing Hao up. Jing Hao had returned to the meeting location to continue waiting and thought that it was Rui En who called since Kun Ge had used Rui En’s phone to call Jing Hao. Some initial ‘I thought could trust you’ type of thing were rattled out, Kun Ge got right to business, saying how he had been betrayed, etc. Jing Hao was, of course, stumped by the fact that Song Wan Ji had admitted the truth (or the weaved-up version of the truth).

As if he wasn’t worried to death already after Kun Ge hung up on him, that Min Shuo had to show up and attacked him too. (Again, what in the world was Min Shuo to Rui En, her husband? Or her father?) Well, they finally got it out of the way by prioritizing the situation. Yet Jing Hao stopped a distance from the supposed place that Rui En’s imprisonment location. What now? Jing Hao stopped Min Shuo from proceeding by saying that he wanted Min Shuo to promise him something.

Okay, I was watching and didn’t want to recount much but that was a powerful scene and great planning from Jing Hao with trying to get Min Shuo and Rui En out of there. (YET it sucks that he has to let Min Shuo be the hero. Even if it was to distract Kun Ge so the other two could run yet it means that he would be a bad guy forever, without anyone knowing the truth.) But Heaven decided to help Jing Hao because Xue Zhe came in time before Kun Ge shoot Jing Hao to tell Kun Ge that the traitor was actually that other dude, who actually work for Song Wan Ji. Jing Hao was rushed to the hospital while Min Shuo and Rui En were recaptured once again. Of course, since Rui En was the useful bargaining chip that could work either way, with her father or Jing Hao–it would register some reaction. Kun Ge wanted a meet up with Song Wan Ji, what would this result in? Of course, Kun Ge won’t let someone make a big joke out of him. Song Wan Ji will have to pay.

The day when Song Wan Ji got to play the hero in saving his daughter. How touching, eh? Everyone get to play the hero to save Rui En while Jing Hao was dubbed as the bastard who only cared about money to the point that he didn’t think twice with using others to benefit. (OF COURSE I’M BEING SARCASTIC.) Kun Ge’s my favorite character right now since he’s going to make others suffer for making a fool out of him. But we were cut short of that, probably because they wanted to save stuffs for later.

Everyone found out about Jing Hao’s condition and rushed to the hospital, except for Rui En of course, since she still thought he was the bad dude. Kun Ge was right, she was sure living in a happy world, not knowing the truth, etc. Then there was also the whole flashback with Jing Hao and Min Shuo’s conversation before they went to save Rui En. It seemed like Min Shuo was looking more and more regretful or somewhat feeling torn like he wanted to tell Rui En the whole thing. (I think I underestimated Lin Yo Wei since he managed to bring out the actual genuine, sincere kind of feeling toward the character at that point versus the fake, pretentious pitiful look Min Shuo exuded in the past.) Perhaps I should forgive him? Yet if he told the truth or something, then he would be forgiven more. But that had to wait for the next episode because it ended where Jing Hao finally woke up.
