Friday Drama Round Up #116

Ninja's Friday Drama Round Up #116
Super Salaryman Saenai Shi (Japanese Drama, New)
This one has a fun wacky premise of an ordinary middle age office worker suddenly becoming superman. Struggling to get used to his new role, our hero nonetheless finds his superpower quite useful when it comes to doing all the household chores his wife foists on him. 

A really light comedy that doesn't take itself seriously at all but still fun anyway.

Legend of Condor Hero 2017 (Chinese Drama, New)
For those who are Wuxia fans, Legend of Condor Hero is a classic and one that should be extremely familiar. As you can guess from the show's title, Legend of Condor Hero has lots of (I believe this one is the tenth one) versions and this one is just the latest remake.

The show has only aired up to episode four and our heroine hasn't even appeared yet so it's way too early to tell how this one compares to its predecessors but...

Friday Drama Round Up #114

Ninja's Friday Drama Round Up #114
General and I (Chinese Drama, New)
Wallace Chung and Angelababy's new historical C-drama. Swearing vengeance after her master's family was wiped out by the combined conspiracy of the king and Chu Bei Jei (their enemy nation's general), our heroine Ping Ting obviously wants nothing less than to get rid of our hero Bei Jei. Knowing full well that as the wise strategist who had managed to defeat him on the battle field, Ping Ting must be a formidable foe, yet that doesn't stop Bei Jei from falling in love with her at first sight...even if that love might cost him his life. 

Episode one was a bit slow with its long drawn out battle scenes but the pace picked up considerably once the two leads' romance gets going. I wasn't holding out a lot of hope for this one but judging by how engaging this show has been thus far I think this one might just be a pleasant surprise.

The King of Romance Episode 2-4 Second Impression

Episode 2-4 Overview:
Fighting like cats and dogs ever time they see each other, our two leads would like nothing more than to never each other again...yet the drama gods insist on throwing them together again and again. Frustrated to find out that his newly purchased house is still being occupied by the previous owner, Wang Nuo decides to evict the squatter personally only to be completely stunned when he finds a sleeping Bing Bing instead.

Leaning in to wake Bing Bing, Wang Nuo blinks in surprise when our heroine instead pulls him close for a kiss. Belatedly realizing that Bing Bing is too delirious with fever to wake up (even if she was strong enough to still pull him back for a second kiss...), Wang Nuo resigns himself to the role of a nurse.

Horrified when she spots Mi Pong's ad in the newspaper, Shin Ae calls Mama Jo frantically and screams at her to go stop Grandfather Kim from seeing the ad.  Much to Shin Ae's relief, Mama Jo manages to "accidentally" pour a cup of tea on Grandfather Kim's newspaper and successfully whisk the ad out of Grandfather Kim's room.
