I don’t write too many reviews but this show was uncharacteristically great and caught my attention from Episode 1. Alright, I was also watch for Zhang Han as well.

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

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:

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.

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!

These two can’t be together for an episode without fighting. Ah well.

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.

Sorry about the hiatus. Here is your next installment of Lu Zhen, albeit a few months late!

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.)

Oh LLW, why do give me some of your best episodes now and then decide to spiral into a heap of uncontrollable of waste that even a dung beetle wouldn’t dare touch. As for Yu Wen Yong, he remains the best written character in this drama. No wonder he united that part of China.

The true culprits to Si Ye’s “treason” are revealed and everyone get’s their just desserts. Hello World! This week has been hectic as I’ve returned from a job fair and am beginning my 3 day vacation from a hectic work life. I will post as much as I can while I sip margaritas and ponder about my future career steps. That being said, this is a much better episode than ep 13 and it only gets better from here.

Si Ye and Xue Wu’s relationship hangs in the balance and outside forces try to wedge all sorts of obstacles. Also can I just say, Feng Shao Feng, in this scene I saw a glimmer of true and unadulterated acting that I’m surprised was in you. Good for you man.

To Lu Zhen and Gao Zhan, life and death are terms that have no meaning without each other. Neither are in a good place emotionally and have to fight tooth and nail to be together against forces bent on destroying them.

LLW has one thing going for it in these episodes, its that things move faster than a energizer bunny rabbit. Even though Xue Wu believes that Si Ye’s main wife, the one he is fated to be with, the one named Lady Zhen, this episode is really fun. This is a good episode, even if it doesn’t have my Yu Wen Yong in it.

Political intrigue at its best is when the players operate in both the open and the shadows. The deadly dance of power between Yu Wen Hu and Yu Wen Yong is engrossing for the viewer because neither can afford to underestimate the other, to do so means a certain, horrible death. Beneath the flowery language lies two vicious animals with bloodlust in their eyes.
