POV DISCUSSION: Pleasantly Surprised Episode 9


Another brilliant episode 🙂

I started this a few days ago, and finally catch up with Episode 9, and the drama continues to be awesome. It surprises me a lot that in just 9 episodes, we have everything we need. The characters are well fleshed out – we know their history, and they all have their own roles. We have childhood playmates, whose relationship slowly transcend beyond that and we also have the almost lover to complete the love triangle.

It’s been a while since I watched a TW-drama which doesn’t focuses a lot on exaggerated comedy, and the leads bickering for episodes before they fall in love. What makes this drama awesome is that, the characters feel real and so does their emotions. We get to see how Kai Qi slowly opens up to Zi Jie, and how he manages to change her bit by bit. It’s both sweet and satisfying.

Sadly it’s actually the calm before the storm, because Zi Jie is leaving Taiwan soon – and I don’t know if he will, but if he does, Kai Qi will definitely be more than upset.

I’m not going to do a recap, I’m just going to write out my thoughts.

POV DISCUSSION: Pleasantly Surprised (Love Myself or You)


Okay – A new Taiwan drama on my watching list, and it’s called Pleasantly Surprised, or otherwise known as Love Myself or You. There were good reviews about it, and thanks to Blueeyy, I finally started watching it yesterday and it was fun 🙂

I would have marathon all the 8 episodes, but too bad it was like 2 am and I had to work – so I only watched 3 episodes so far. Catching up with the rest soon.

Anyway, this drama seems pretty promising, and I like what I see so far – so hopefully, it doesn’t drag and maintain this way throughout.
