  1. Thanks! Not many new dramas for MAy.

    I hope Sophie Zhang's acting has improved. She was awful in "Fifteen Years of Waiting for Migratory Birds". Huang Shengchi was quite good in that 2017 summer swimming drama which was so forgettable I now can't remember the name. He made more of an impression than the bland idol playing the lead anyway.

    1. awful is not a good sign at all. I feel even less inclined to check it out.
