Because of Meeting You
Because of Meeting You is a Chinese remake of the Korean drama: Come! Jang Bori.
A bubbly and adored young woman, Zhang Guo Guo, works at her mother’s wonton shop, delivering wonton around the small town. She is hard working and has an upright personality. She always submits herself to her spoiled older sister, Zhang Yu Xin, but little does she know that she is adopted and that her biological family actually runs a famous embroidery workshop. As both sisters become devoted to the art of embroidery, they become rivals in the embroidery industry and in gaining affection from Guo Guo’s biological mother.
This drama is centered around embroidery, which I found very unique. I do not usually watch dramas incorporating fashion so I was very excited when I found this! I adore all the gorgeous qipao outfits! Honestly, I wish I could embroider.
This drama falls under the genre of melodramas, but was very adorable at the same time, centering around the themes of family and integrity. Continue reading

Its been weeks since I have finished Princess Weiyoung. This drama has amazed me from the beginning. However, I was not prepared for its ending.
Every day, I would wait desperately for the episodes to be subbed. I was clearly obsessed with this drama. This was literally the only drama I watched for about three weeks.
Side note, I was thrilled to hear that Tiffany Tang and Luo Jin, the stars of this drama, are dating! They’re absolutely adorable. Their OST has been on repeat for weeks! Continue reading
First Impressions: Princess Weiyoung (EP 1- 10)
I hold no responsibility for what is written past this point.
First off, there are 54 episodes to fulfill our drama obsession – super historical obsession in my case.
Second, it airs EVERY WEEKDAY. I tend to get very annoyed that I would have to wait a whole week before being left off at another cliffhanger ><
Third, TWO EPISODES EVERY DAY. NOT ONE BUT TWO. WHY ARE YOU NOT ON THIS BANDWAGON ALREADY?! Continue reading

This drama has got to be one of my top favorites!
