This is an old thread but I hope there are others who have watched this: I'm just starting the 2nd season and I'm wondering if they're going to talk about what happened between Du Xiao Yue and her fiance in the 1st season?

To me interracial relationships are a non-issue. I don't really care what people do on the own. As long as nothing is imposed on me then people can do whatever they want. Also, just because you're in an interracial relationship, doesn't mean you're not a racist. I've known plenty of racist people th...

I think for me, the key appeal of Hallyu has been how foreign investment and international sales has enabled Korean dramas to reach higher artistically. From the very first episode of The Legend, it's just so obvious that this benchmark-setting event (similar to what Damo was in 2003) could not hav...

I agree with Hanjae's sentiment that the wave isn't so much waning as it is becoming normalized. A lot of non-Korean Asians are now familiar with Korean entertainment and culture that it's now a part of their lifestyle. What I mean is, during the wave, most people were willing to watch anything that...

I've watched up to ep 4. It's very comic, but so far nothing special about it. Also I just don't see the main lead hooking up with the main female lead. The age gap in the story makes it a virtual social taboo in Korea. I think they'll hook up for sure...but they might use that X years later thing....

I'm thinking of watching this and was just wondering how the romance is in it?

Also, I find it interesting that they used a Catholic nun instead of a Buddhist nun. I ca...

I visited Japan in Spring 2007 and had a local 32 year old woman act as a tour guide around Tokyo.

I didn't really need her to tell me that, but it...

I personally "ran away" from home when I graduated at 17. Not because I hated my parents but because I felt suffocated my own circumstances.

Dubbing and Voice Actors

I was watching a behind-the-scenes video of My Bratty Princess and what surprised me was that they were even dubbing the voices of the actors that were speaking Mandarin! (Meaning not a Cantonese-to-Mandarin dub or vice versa. But a Mandarin-to-different-Mandarin-Voice dub). And then I remembered ba...

Do you have any other news on this? My Chinese isn't that good so I wasn't able to fully understand what's going on. Is it being filmed right now or are they done? Do you know when it's going to air?

I bet in the U.S (where I live) they stereotype Japanese people with anime, games, hentai, ninja, samurai, sushi, etc...

What bugs me about Taiwanese dramas is the quality of acting. I find the way they "talk" is a bit awkward. It's like they overemphasize their pronunciation or something so the dialog just doesn't seem natural. When I watch HK dramas--which are dubbed in Mandarin--I feel that the dubbing/voice actors...
