This recap took me a while but I finally finished. Currently it’s the wee hours in the morning here, but hopefully this recap will hold everyone over until Tomorrow (which really is just today).

Sound of the Desert – Episode 5 Recap
We leave off from the last part when the Princess had come to watch Hua Yue Nong. At the end of the it, she tells Xin Yue that she’ll reward her with death. Everyone around Xin Yue beg for leniency while Xin Yue smiles calmly. The Princess asks why Xin Yu isn’t begging for her life and Xin Yue replies that she’ll listen to the Princess in all things, she brought a love story to the people pure and simple. The princess says that she doesn’t believe that Xin Yue’s intentions are so pure.

Again – thank goodness that this show doesn’t do 3 episodes, otherwise I would be reading recaps than writing them. Also – thankss to Suteki for referring readers! She’s got a great site for novels and drama content, so head over there when you can! She’s also got the raws for each episode. Also I will be releasing recaps around midnight US PST

I haven’t done a lot of updating in the last few weeks. Trying to balance work, life, and blogging is a juggling act and I had to drop one or two obligations for a little while. I love all my readers for sticking by me. Here’s the recap of the first two episodes.
Song Translation – Please Live Well – Da Mo Yao (Sound of the Desert)
Thank you Ms. Koala for sharing this wonderful video on your site.

This song is only get better with each listen and since the singer also plays the character, it’s absolutely perfect. I’m preparing myself for the show, and yes, I will be recapping it. Also – link to the Da Mo Yao novel translations are below, from Ms. Koala’s Play Ground. But here’s the song translation:

Perfect Couple Episode 4 Recap – Jin Yu Liang Yuan (金玉良缘 )
So I had to debate real hard whether or not to do this episode today after a full work day and then some. It’s a great episode, but it’s also mentally exhausting to recap Tong Hua’s stuff since she’s a master of prose and quips. Here goes. Episode 4 Recap

金玉良缘 – Jin Yu Liang Yuan Perfect Couple – Episode 3 Recap
Between work, writing my own novel, recapping a show I find myself exhausted on a sunday. Recapping a good drama takes time, espcially one that makes me laugh. Also, I probably should get out more as I resemble more or less an albino bat than human being at this point. Hopefully people are enjoying this show as much as I am. But without much ado, recap 3:

金玉良缘 – Jin Yu Liang Yuan Perfect Couple – Episode 2 Recap
So, currently, I recap at the pace of a erratic snail on a slow sunday. Not because I don’t love the shows but there are a limited number of hours in the day and this post was finished at 5AM today. But it shouldn’t get in the way of your enjoyment of this Jin Yu Liang Yuan. I was surfing the net today and i found a blogger (http://www.thehungryegghead.com) who has mini-recapped all the way up to Ep. 9 the last time I went onto her blog. So please check that out! I find that the blogging community is a wonderful place and it’s always good to see everyone enjoying the same thing.
Okay. Episode 2 Recap.

金玉良缘 aka Perfect Couple – Episode 1 Recap
I nearly died from laughing after watching the first 3 fantastic episodes of Perfect Couple. Words can not adequately describe how much fun it was to watch physical and verbal comedy done to perfection. While the first episode was slightly more introductory, the rest of them were just pure fun to watch.Tong Hua is a master of letting her readers visualize her story, which is one of the reasons why all her novels are hugely popular. Of course, her stories are always vastly complicated and always leaves the reader in a state of indecisive contentment (I will probably write more on this at the end of the recap) I want to share my joy of watching a show that I didn’t press fast forward in at all, it’s something that should be enjoyed not just by those who speak Chinese but anyone who is a fan of Tong Hua. Now I’m off to watch the next 3 episodes and will try to recap as soon as I can!

宮3 － Gong 3 – Gong Suo Chen Lian Recaps Ep 1-2
So the next Gong came out. Maybe 3rd time’s the charm? Considering that the second series lost my interest in episode 2, I still decided to give this one a go. This is mainly because I thing Lu Yi is practically phenomenal in everything he does and thus, this show deserves a chance. However, if it becomes a angst filled show about how the 2nd female lead gets in the way of the two main character 50% of the time, I will drop the recaps like a hot potato. No one wants to see the second female lead for perhaps 15% of the time (i’m being generous). So anyways this show is about how two babies that swapped lives fall for each other as adults and the trials and tribulations affect their love story.
*update, I just read something about this drama that makes me scared and intrigued. If you want to know there’s a more button at the end of this post, click on it and see.

Female Prime Minister: Legend of Lu Zhen Episode 45
These two can’t be together for an episode without fighting. Ah well.

Lan Ling Wang, 兰陵王 Episode 16 Recap
So one of the best and most intense Yu Wen Yong scenes comes to mind in this episode. At this point, anyone who reads my blog knows that I basically think that Yu Wen Yong is the best character in this show. I love this scene to bits, and for good reason.
Female Prime Minister: Legend of Lu Zhen Episode 44
Sorry about the hiatus. Here is your next installment of Lu Zhen, albeit a few months late!

2014 Upcoming Chinese Dramas
SO. I have a few TV shows that I want to see, dramas that I want to recap. They are all historically based because China has a long history of producing modern dramas that I’m not interested in or Korea/America does a lot better in. I don’t know any of the airing dates. So if I start recapping, presumably it has started airing. (Sorry, just watched Sherlock Season 3, am a bit rude due to functioning sociopathic influences.)
