Favourite drama of the month.

The Rational Life (2021)

This. drama. is. everything. 


Considering that this is suitable for mature audiences, and is very slow in the romance department, it has done a very good job at balancing both; the office-life theme with sprinkles of romance in between. It is about a working woman in her 30s who went through a downhill in her career as she's involved in office politics that had her demoted, and how she stood back up and build her career again slowly, and in the end, rose even higher than her superiors. Shen Ruo Xin is the's the epitome of a strong female lead. She's mature, calibre, rational, logical, and ready to face any problems and difficulties without wavering for even one second. She knows exactly what she wants, and she always pushes herself and fights for what she's worth. And the male lead, Qi Xiao, on the other hand, is charming and confident, yet so mature. He has dreams, he plans for the future, and always gives his best in whatever he does.

Although they have an age gap of 12 years (19 years in real life!), there was no awkwardness between the characters. The age gap issue and anything that revolves around it was handled very carefully, so it was very pleasant to watch. We get to experience their moments of falling in love as it progresses naturally; slow, yet realistic. Their relationship is stronger than ever, as they believed in each other and what they are capable of. There's no doubt in their relationship, as they are very honest with each other regarding their thoughts and feelings. The characters, dynamics, and personality development are very well-written. I've laughed and cried a lot while watching this, and I hope you guys will do too!

Note: This post has been kept in my draft for more than 3 years, and after several times of editing — I think it's time to let my thoughts out to the world.

People do fall in love at first sight.

Be honest, the first thing we noticed about someone is their looks.

"But I don't fall for their looks, I love them for their personalities." 

Yes, visuals are subjective. But let's say you meet someone, a bit far from your expectations of "good looking", would you still look at them?

You would only get those feelings if you're close to them. So if you're not, then the chances are—you won't.

You pick your choice from the visuals in front of your eyes. You choose to talk to them, you choose to get to know them. What if you don't like that person's looks? While they're maybe not your visual type, they might be "the nice personality-kind of type" that you've been waiting for but you missed it just because they're not that "good-looking" enough for you to dive into their lives.

So yes, falling in love at first sight is real. You please your eyes first, then you'll want to get to know them. After you feel the connection, you'll fall in love. Simple math.

Without visuals, there's no love.

It's hard to find love based on personality alone. I've seen cases where people hinted that they like you—only to change their minds after they see your appearance. And that's harsh.

As cruel as it sounds, not everyone is kind enough to accept you the way you are.

So don't invalidate people's feelings just because they fell in love at first sight. They just like what they see. The actions afterwards that matter.

What about you? What do you think?

How's everybody doing? I hope you had a good month—because it wasn't for me. My schedules are pretty hectic these days. And since our programme doesn't have final exams, we, as usual, are bombarded with tons of assignments and deadlines until the end of the month. I'm feeling a bit lethargic, stressed out, and is going through questionable thoughts and episodes from time to time. 

Anyways, here's my last month's favourites!

Favourite songs of the month.

OH MY GIRL - Dun Dun Dance

Brave Girls - Rollin'

TXT - 0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You)

Favourite drama of the month.

Begin Again (2020)


First off, a drama with Gong Jun and Zhou Yutong? Yes. Romance? Yes. Marriage-centred? Yes! This is a very funny drama with a plot twist; the domineering and straightforward CEO, Lu Fangning is a lady instead of a guy, while the gentle doctor, Ling Rui, is a guy instead, and how their characters mature over time amazes me so much. The chemistry between all characters is great and though there is a second male-lead, there was no obvious external conflict that had happened. There's also a time-skip which helps the story as well as the characters to mature and having their roles reversed, like how Lu Fangning who was once assertive, became soft and gentle after their son was born and how Ling Rui changed into someone more straightforward, and the one who tries to find ways to make their relationship work again after 6 years. The misunderstandings are resolved relatively quick so it's a nice watch. I've enjoyed this drama so much and I hope you guys will enjoy it too!
