I mean, ep 11 gives us baths of angst, starring Wu Zun and his marvelous arms:








Argh, evil cousin of Wu Zun's character, I hope you die in a fire. Seriously, wtf, psycho! Dude just manipulated the situation to take away not only the company but even the house and is now gloating in WZ's face for being too trusting - i.e. not thinking his family is a pack of two-faced hyenas. DIE! I mean, the rationale isn't that WZ ran the company badly or treated people awfully - nah, it's just that he trusted his family. WTF.

He was about to propose to Rainie, too, and you ruined it! On plus side, it did result in the above-mentioned bath, so it's not all bad.

In case you need more convincing, two shippy scenes from ep 11 - one funny and one touching )

My current/asap twdrama roster is this, Love Keeps Going, Material Queen, Calling for Love, I Do, KO 3an Guo, The X-Family, That Love Comes, Marry Me, Because of You, Bump Off Lover, Roseate Love, In Time With You, Ring Ring Bell, and Material People (though I suppose the latter is a cdrama). Plus a few others. And I feel like rewatching Wish to See You Again. Good Lord.

Well, actually about halfway through ep 1 - first ep is over 1:30 long (!!!)

I like it. It's not earthshaking or anything but it's pleasant. I think a lot of it, however, would depend on how much you like Cyndi Wang. I find her adorable so I am invested and amused, but if you are not a fan, it will probably fall pretty flat.

The story of LKG revolves around Mei Le (Cyndi), a young woman who dedicated herself to being useful, believing only useful people are loved. However, her life gets derailed when her fiance leaves her for another woman and her professional/personal plans all fall apart. And then she meets her former fiance's ascerbic brother (Mike He).

I actually quite like the concept - everyone in Mei Le's life so far doesn't love her for her, they love her for what she can do (she is organized, skilled, with good job etc), even her mother. But that is not really what love should be about - it is not supposed to be conditional, based on what you can do for another person. That is something in an employment situation, not an emotional one. So I hope Mei Le learns to be loved for herself and learn to value herself and not just what she can do for other people. So far, the only person who makes her get grumpy and get out of 'born to please' mode is Mike He's character, so that is a good sign.
