It's insane the number of time travel dramas that have been released after Scarlet HeartFaithful to Buddha, Faithful to You 不负如来不负卿 is another that is adapted from a popular novel by Xiao Chun 小春. 
The Great Expectations c-drama

The Great Expectations 远大前程 is a 40-episode Chinese TV series starring Chen Si Cheng, Yuan Hong, Tong Liya and Amber Kuo. Can I expect nothing short of greatness?
Singing All Along 秀丽江山之长歌行 seems like the type of drama that my dad would watch and exactly the kind that I would watch with him. There's more romance than expected but it hints at a greater conflict that can move mountains and change dynasties.

Inasmuch as I like everything about it, I find it unbearably awkward to see a 40-year-old Ruby Lin playing a lady that has barely stepped into adulthood so please, let the characters grow up already.

Singing All Along Episode 1 recap

Episode 1 begins with Liu Xiu (Yuan Hong) and his subordinates weary, injured and on the run from an army of militants. Yin Li Hua (Ruby Lin) stays behind to fend off their pursuers and she succeeds but not before falling helplessly into frigid waters.
There was a time when Taiwanese dramas were all the rage but that time has passed, what with the surge in Chinese fantasy wuxia and the indomitable hallyu wave

Even so, it holds a special place in the hearts of many for the stories once told and the songs once heard. The list includes TW dramas from 2000 - 2010 so let's take a step into the past. 

Meteor Garden

Taiwanese drama Meteor Garden

Is it a must-watch, pretty good, just another drama, tolerable or downright boring?
Entourage kdrama

I love k-dramas and I love Entourage so imagine my reaction upon hearing that a k-drama remake is in the works, umm happy dance all around when no one was watching. Apparently, I am not the only one because Entourage is gearing up for a simultaneous broadcast in Korea, China, Japan and many other countries looking to secure rights to the production. 

Entourage 안투라지 airs Nov 4 on cable network tvN, which has been solidifying its reputation as a breeding ground for brilliant films that push the limits where no other network can, kind of like how Conan O'Brian ended up on TBS actually.

It stars Seo Kang Joon, Jo Jin Woong, Park Jung Min, Lee Kwang Soo and Lee Dong Hwi and you can probably tell which one is Ari Gold, Vincent Chase, E, Drama and Turtle by their looks alone.

For those who have never heard of Entourage, it is a satire on the entertainment industry brought to life through a story around an A-list actor, his homies and his foul-mouthed manager. If it is anything like the HBO series, then expect cameos from the brightest stars in k-ent, lots of it.
