Ninja's Friday Drama Round Up #104
V-Focus (Taiwanese Drama, New)
I have only checked out the first episode of this new T-daily so it's way too early to tell if this one is a winner or not. The quality of the editing and filming are kinda lackluster but since this is a daily after all I could overlook those shortcomings as long as the plot proves to be interesting.

10/21 Ninja's Drama Survey Results
I was surprised that Scarlet Heart took first in this question. Based on the online chatters I had thought Moonlight would out perform Scarlet Heart for sure but apparently I wasn't the only one that was losing interest in Moonlight for some reason. I was a bit dismayed to see so few of you are watching Blow Breeze...is anyone even reading my Blow Breeze recap??

Ninja's Drama Survey
Lately I have been pondering about why I started drama blogging in the first place. The short answer is that it was completely on a lark but the long answer is actually that I wanted a way to interact with people who loves Asian drama as much as I do. The more I thought about my long answer the more I realized that I have been focused on writing my own thoughts without any way of getting insights into what everyone else is watching.

Something About 1% (Korean Drama, New)
This one is a remake of the 2003 romance drama 1% of Anything. I don't remember much about the original but I think Ha Seok Jin and Jeon So Min might have better chemistry together than their predecessors.

Synopsis: A kindhearted elementary school teacher, our heroine doesn't expect any repayment when she rescues a homeless old man. The homeless old man turns out to be filthy rich and decides to repay our heroine by making his grandson marry her. Completely puzzled when our arrogant hero suddenly shows up in her life, our heroine eventually relents and agrees to pretend to date him for six month.

Love O2O Movie vs TV

I finally got a chance to check out Love O2O the movie the other day and was pretty excited to see how it differed from the TV version. 

For ease of comparison I will be referring to the movie version as Love O2O and the TV version of Just One Smile Is Very Alluring simply as Alluring.
