Skip Beat!

So this past week, instead of actually studying for Chinese, I watched Skip Beat! (the Taiwanese drama). Gotta say that it was a little disappointing, lol. I mean, I've never read the manga it's based on, so I dunno how true to the manga it is (though I know that the manga is still ongoing), but based on the synopsis I read of the show, it didn't really fulfill my expectations.

Gong Xi sacrificed her life to support her boyfriend, Bu Puo Shang, so he could become a successful singer. One day, Shang suddenly breaks up with Gong Xi, leaving her with nothing, and Gong Xi vows revenge. She decides to delve into the entertainment world and become even more successful than Shang to get back at him. Gong Xi therein meets Dun He Lian, another actor in her agency, who helps motivate her to become a top entertainer. -- D-Addicts

I mean, that totally sounds intriguing, right? But the show kinda falls short.

The Good )

The Bad )

So there's more bad in my lists than good (though there are lots of other things I left out that I have feelings about), but yeah, lol. I mean, the show was okay, but it did drag at times. I already had feelings of discontent halfway through because, most of the time, the main issue is almost fully resolved (or, at least, a big revelation is had regarding the main issue) by the halfway point, but it definitely wasn't here, so I was totally discouraged as I watched. And then the last episode comes and that, to me, was pretty much the halfway resolution mark. (You know, basically when Shang realizes he still has feelings for Gong Xi! Wasn't that was suppose to happen, like, seven episodes ago?!) So really, where is the other 15 or so episodes that explores Shang and the dynamic between him, Gong Xi, and Lian and gives us a resolution for all of them?!

Yeah, anyways, I need to study for Chinese f'real now since I have finals coming up this week. =/
