Hi everyone and good afternoon from Los Angeles! I was searching the web and found that people have started a petition to demand a sequel to Taiwan’s Hana Kimi. To those that have watched the show starring Ella Chen and Wu Zun, it’s obvious that the ending was just crap. Yep, you read correctly! There I was, patiently waiting for the ending to be subbed in one of the mornings of March (or around this month) of last year before I was to head to my college class. Instead, I was disappointed when the story ended without answering the following questions: What happened between Rui Xi and Quan? How about Julia and Xiu Yi? And all of the whats and ifs!
This petition may or may not work, but there’s no harm in signing. It literally takes a few seconds depending on the speed of your typing skill. 😛
Finally! I’ve been waiting for this kind of Lobo episode (the one that aired tonight). I was only able to watch the show a few minutes ago since I couldn’t find any uploaders who’d upload it at Philippine time. SO… where do I begin?!
Finally, Lyka and Noah both know the truth (or at least, Noah knows only what the Luna wants him to know). Just when Lyka got herself into a deep stinky mess, Lola Elle comes to the rescue and shows her true hairy side. Meanwhile, Noah is chased down by a serum-injected black lobo and is saved by his adoptive father. Gabby and the gang proceed to tell Noah what’s really going down. Man, I thought he was having a nervous break down! The look on Noah’s face screamed, “Mental Hospital!”
OOH! I also have one of my questions answered from the April 1st entry! That weird guy with the hat is the traitor (traydor!!!) in the white waya clan. The black waya lobo was all saying, “Thanks Kuya (older brother),” when his kuya was releasing him from his cell. Man oh man…!
Coming back to Lyka, Elle directly tells Lyka that that she is her grandmother. This is where Lyka also discovers that Trixie knows everything as well.
I am glad that the writers aren’t pissing us off this time. Usually, when it comes to any Filipino drama, the damned writers are always prolonging everything, making twists, adding questions, adding miscommunication which leads the main characters to fight each other while the bad guys are sipping wine — all this with no relief of finding out the truth (which usually can be found waaaaaaaaaay at the finale). Probably the major thing that erred me a bit about Lobo is during The Dark Days when Noah and Lyka were running away from the military (and Gabby yapping away way too much that time).
Although, for the past few weeks, I have been wondering if whether the writers, or any of the Lobo cast and crew, read what fans of the show have to say. In yesterday’s episode, when the Luna female scientist was being all chismosa on Anton’s work, the screen had a date: March 30, 2008. Hmmm… Did the Lobo crew type a random date or was it the date of that day’s filming? If so, that would just give the show an advance of one week prior to the airing of the taping. THEREFORE, it would give them plenty of time to satisfy the viewers’ wants and needs and to fix any criticisms made by the fans on screen.
On the other hand, I’m somewhat disappointed because I expected that the taping would have begun as soon as Angel Locsin and Piolo Pascual accepted the roles. This would give both the writers and the directors enough time (in addition to the 2-3 years) to develop the story in writing AND on film. Hell, if the writers are going to be like Marimar‘s writers and acting upon a whim day after day, asking, “Hmm… how are we going to make Marimar’s life a mess today?”, then f*cking forget it! I might as well stop watching the show now. I like shows that have been carefully planned out, with mystery, with questions answered from time to time, and with everything connecting! An intricate web.
However, I think it’s “safe” to say that Lobo hasn’t jumped into the tide of crazy as Marimar did. They proved that earlier with tonight’s episode. The story is moving forward, questions are being answered, but viewers are still left with intrigue on what’s to happen next.
I am “Fated To Love” Ethan Ruan
Gosh, he’s so fine. Ethan Ruan (as Ji Cun Xi) and Chen Qiao En (as Chen Xin Yi) currently stars in Fated To Love You, a new Taiwan drama that started airing in March 2008. Yes, I am late in announcing that. I was at mysoju.com getting my daily soju fix and stumbled upon the show. Let me tell ya, it’s good. Maybe it’s because Ethan’s so fine and Chen Qiao En plays a budding working woman who’s always being pushed around.
Anyways, here’s the summary from your friendly Dramawiki.com:
A really unfashionable working class girl Chen Xin Yi has the desire to tie down her handsome boyfriend to be with her. Due to certain reasons, her boyfriend gets her to go on a love cruise and she started to ponder on how to lose her virginity and tie down her boyfriend. Xin Yi ended up taking cold medicine which made her drowsy and went into Ji Cun Xi’s room. Cun Xi is the sole male heir to his family’s company and has been in love with his girlfriend, Anna, for a long time. He planned to propose to Anna on the boat but she didn’t turn up on the cruise. An island owner added drugs into Cun Xi’s drink and Cun Xi became disorientated and returned to his own room. Xin Yi and Cun Xi end up having a one night stand. Xin Yi later finds out that she’s pregnant and Cun Xi’s grandmother forces them to get married. Will a couple forced to marry for the sake of their unborn child find love with each other?
AND here’s the link to watch it. The first episode’s steamy bed scene was probably the main reason why people got so hooked. 🙂 Oh, and it’s fun and funny too, with occasional teary moments (just a little!).
Anyways, good night and happy drama viewing everyone!!
