C.L.I.F. 警徽天职: Private Screening

27May11

visit C.L.I.F.'s microsite HERE =)

I first found out about this private screening from fellow blogger, Shiliang. He said Veron from Mediacorp had emailed him about it, given him some exclusive pictures, and told him only some bloggers were invited directly.

A few days later, baguatv blog posted this post: I wanna blog for Channel 8!
It was also on this same day that I received an email from Veron, who asked if I was interested in going for this exclusive premiere!

---

Date: Friday 20 May 2011
Time: 7.45pm
Venue: Sinema Old School at Mount Sophia

After an ardulous climb up what seemed millions of steps, we reached the venue!

Everyone was entitled to free popcorn from Cornery, and a bottled drink! Bloggers got an exclusive Channel 8 mouse!

What we were all waiting for...

DSC07269.jpg DSC07276.jpg

The cinema was small, but very cosy. The seats were really comfortable; it really felt like you were lounging around on your sofa at home!
BLOGGERS GOT TO SIT IN THE 2 FRONT ROWS! We were like the press for the night =)

Fanclubs of Joanne Peh, Elvin Ng, Chris Tong and Rebecca Lim were present.

Ben Yeo was the host for the night. He appeared at 8.20pm and the event officially began.

The artistes came out and asked everyone to support the show. Tay Ping Hui, Chris Tong, Joanne Peh, Aileen Tan, Rayson Tan and Romeo Tan were present. They sat at the back, and the screening began...

Opening:

It was definitely an enjoyable experience, as we watched, cheered, and got responses from the artistes, especially Tay Ping Hui (he kept going THANK YOU everytime we cheered when he did something herotic onscreen). The atmosphere was really great.

However, what irked me was the bad resolution of the drama. In action scenes, especially when characters were moving around very quickly, there was a visible lag, and the picture was pixelised.

More on the 1st episode later.

The artistes came back down to take photos and interact with the fans. Bloggers were given priority for photo-taking.

And the event ended. It was a great night for everyone, I'm sure!

My First Impression:

This police show differs from previous ones, as 1) Action sequences are long and realistically filmed 2) There are tons of explosions and a lot of violence - cases involve tons of people (demonstrations and riots) 3) Many police vehicles are featured, and procedures in an operation are also concentrated on 4) Various aspects of the police force are focused on in detail and 5) Most of the scenes take place outside the office; Characters are often in the field.

The opening scene in Thailand was a bit slow and haphazard. It was necessary, but the dubbing annoyed me, and it somehow did not seem very realistic. I guess no one expects a riot to take place on a beach. And for the important dignitary to escape via boat, instead of a helicopter was also questionable.

I will watch the first episode again, on TV, and see if I have this same impression. Maybe the lagginess and pixelised picture were getting to me.

In the first episode alone, various departments of the police force were already focused on and many characters were already introduced. Chris Tong is the only one in the main cast who didn't appear in the first episode. Andie Chen, Romeo Tan and Rebecca Lim were supporting characters who also did not appear in the first episode.

What to expect:

Action - Steoreotypical scenes, like the one where Tay Ping Hui saved a kid from before an explosion took place was so predictable. But scenes where demonstrators wrecked havoc, and where a strike turned into a riot which are never seen on TV (except in the news) take prominence here. The police force shows off all their high-tech vehicles and capable commands operators.

Violence - In the first episode alone, there were 2 riots, and fighting ensued. I'm not sure if the team will encounter anymore in the later episodes, but it seems to be quite an important focus in this drama.

Suspense - Time ticking on bombs. Bombs are another important focus in this drama, and it is definitely realistic, with terrorism a threat in the world today.

Mystery - This is not a crime-series, where the team solves murder cases. However, identifying suspects and questioning their motives is another key focus. Some characters are mysterious too, like Qi Yuwu's character - it is only known that he is an orphan.

Comedy - Yes, it exists in this drama! Elvin Ng plays a super lazy cop who is forever yawning and wanting to slack on the job. I can't wait to see more.

Overall thoughts:

This drama is very promising. It promises to be the most realistic police drama ever made for local TV! I'm very excited to see how the police force showcase all their vehicles and equipment, and go through emergency procedures and such. It is no longer only about questioning suspects and detective work, so this drama promises to give viewers a different perspective of the police force.

As this drama also focuses on personnel from many different divisions of the police force, I'm curious to see how the plot ties them up, and develops their characters and relationships.

  • 周颖 Zhou Ying汤颖 Tang Ying《破天网 Breakout》

Christopher Lee won 2 of the online voting awards! When I initially heard about Chris and Yi Feng hosting this programme, I was apprehensive. It turns out Chris is quite good at these shows, and worked really well with Yi Feng. An unlikely but winning duo!

2nd SHOW--

BEST DRAMA:

  • 破天网 Breakout
  • 白喜事 New Beginnings
  • 进走出 The Family Court
  • 最火搭档 Unriddle
  • 我在你左右 With You



Expected and well-deserving!!

BEST ACTOR:

  • 铭顺 Christopher Lee破天网 Breakout》
  • 俊雄 Elvin Ng 《破天网 Breakout》
  • 戚玉武 Qi Yu Wu 《走进走出 The Family Court》
  • Shaun Chen 《想握你的手 Your Hand in Mine》
  • 斌辉 Tay Ping Hui 《走进走出 The Family Court》



Am very pleased for him. He always delivers a good performance.

BEST ACTRESS:

  • 陈莉萍 Chen Li Ping《最火搭档 Unriddle》
  • 萱 Jeanette Aw《破天网 Breakout》
  • 白薇秀 Joanne Peh《想握你的手 Your Hand in Mine》
  • 瑞恩 Rui En《我在你左右 With You》
  • 颖 Zhou Ying《破天网 Breakout

[I was unable to take a picture of Rui En as I was sitting just behind her FC, RBKD, and they blocked my view by standing up, screaming, crying, jumping and waving their boards]

I was actually quite surprised! I didn't find her role very outstanding, and as Mark Lee and Zeng Guocheng mentioned, she was crying and looking miserable at every moment of the show; her performance didn't seem very outstanding due to the limitations of the character, but nonetheless, a good performance.

I really wanted Jeanette to get it though. Somehow, this Best Actress award just seems to be out of Jeanette's reach. In recent years, she's lost to Joanne Peh, Chen Li Ping, and now, Rui-en, although her roles were very high profile and were much talked about. I just hope she doesn't have to wait for more than 10 years to walk away with Best Actress, unlike a certain Mr Tay who is getting his All Time Favourite Award next year and is still hoping for the Best Actor...

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:

  • 陈邦鋆 Andie Chen《三个女人一个宝 Precious Babes》
  • 林明伦 Darren Lim《破天网 Breakout》
  • 国辉 Terence Cao《五福到 The Best Things In Life》
  • 姚玟隆 Yao Wen Long《走进走出 The Family Court》
  • 缜翔 Zzen《最火搭档 Unriddle》



Wow! I was pleasantly surprised! It was a different role for him, and he portrayed it very well. First award after acting for so many years, I really like it when the crowd's energy just reflects happiness for him.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS:

  • 郭舒贤 Ann Kok《走进走出 The Family Court》
  • 美珍 Cynthia Koh《过好年 Happy Family》
  • 林梅娇 Lin Mei Jiao《破天网 Breakout》
  • 潘玲玲 Pan Ling Ling 《破天网 Breakout》
  • 向云 Xiang Yun 《最火搭档 Unriddle》



She did a really good job in this role, and I was so pleased she got the award. We weren't able to see her good friends' reactions at the venue, but the crowd's enthusiastic applause and beaming smiles told it all; it was about time for her to be finally recognised =)

ALL TIME FAVOURITE AWARD:

Xiang Yun

TOP 10 MOST POPULAR:
MALE

Qi Yuwu

Chen Hanwei

Huang Wenyong

Everyone was shocked!! Huang Wenyong himself was very very surprised! He even thanked some more people in between. I am very pleased for him! He's a veteran and he's finally got something.

I read about Mediacorp broadcasting the wrong telepoll numbers! I hope it didn't affect the results too much because it'll be very unfair if that were the case.

Elvin Ng

Pornsak

Zheng Geping

Tay Ping Hui

On to award no.10!

Bryan Wong

Zhou Chongqing

Before Chongqing's name was announced, everyone in the crowd was wondering... who's left? Among the popular... Dai Yangtian didn't make it! People were shocked it was Chongqing, not DYT, but you can't really compare them! Auntie Lucy is just so popular!!

Here they are, Star Awards 2011 Top 10 Most Popular Male Artistes:

FEMALE

Jeanette Aw

Rui En

This marks the end of this post. I have more pictures which I took at the venue, I'll probably post them up as a slideshow soon, after I've deleted all the blur shots.

Final say:
Star Awards 2011: 1st show was enjoyable as always. I always respect and look up to the backstage talents; it is because of them that the productions which make it to screen are so enjoyable. The skits were hilarious!! It was also really nice to see Huang Biren again!

Star Awards 2011: 2nd show -- the red carpet show was horrendous! For one, the carpet was yellow, not red. Secondly, although it was held in RWS's carpark, which meant it was sheltered from sun and rain, the ventilation in there was almost non-existant. Fans were sweating buckets and it was really uncomfortable.

The awards show in the Compass Ballroom was similar to last year's. The only exception was the constant "magic show" distractions; I think it was quite amazing for a while, but after a while, it got boring and irritating. Yes, I understand that this is how RWS advertises their shows; but that doesn't stop me from ranting for a while.

The guest presenters this year didn't seem to be as popular and famous as last year's. I didn't sense much hype for these artistes, and there were some people who kept asking "Who is that ah?". As for the winners, everyone was deserving. There were a few surprises, but recent Star Awards have already prepared us for the unexpected!

Here's to another good year of productions, and I look forward to more breakthrough performances and productions which will keep improving!

Star Awards 红星大奖 2011: nominees and thoughts

01Mar11

It's the most exciting and glamorous time of the year for local TV again!

VISIT THE OFFICIAL SITE!!

The biggest disappointment this year is Chen Hanwei's exclusion from Best Actor - his efforts definitely deserve recognition. However, I'm glad Shaun Chen is nominated, it is finally time for him to be recognised. Elvin Ng (2nd nomination) and Tay Ping Hui (8th nomination) are nominated for Best Actor again, and having gone home empty-handed last year... perhaps it is time for one of them to walk away victorious! Qi Yuwu returns to claim a piece of the pie too.

Zhou Ying scores her first Best Actress nomination, and is the black horse this year. Last year's Best Actress Chen Li Ping (7th nomination, 2 wins) goes head-on with 2009's Best Actress Joanne Peh. Neglected Jeanette Aw (4th nomination) fights back with a solid performance, and I think it is finally time for her to win, as she has really impressed with this role. Rui-en's inclusion heats up the battle even more.

The dramas in 2010 were not that outstanding, and I also missed quite a few dramas. I'm therefore unable to comment on a few nominations.

Nominees (from the official site) and thoughts:
(I only list those related to dramas; full list HERE)

Best Drama Serial 最佳电视

  • 破天网 Breakout
  • 白喜事 New Beginnings
  • 进走出 The Family Court
  • 最火搭档 Unriddle
  • 我在你左右 With You


  • 破天网 Breakout:

    The blockbuster drama of the year was thrilling, and kept one wanting to watch more. The cast did a fantastic job, the characters were well-written and portrayed well. Compared to normal Channel 8 productions, which were family oriented and featured more cheerful themes, this drama was dark and full of vengeance, secrets and violence - definitely something we have not seen on Channel 8 for at least 10 years (The Reunion 顶天立地 was the last drama which left such an impression on me).

    However, the downfall was this drama's ending. It left me feeling cheated because I had watched the whole show diligently, only to have an ending where most of the characters died. Zhou Ying and Elvin's ending was also abstract and left me feeling dissatisfied.
  • 白喜事 New Beginnings:

    The theme was an interesting one - a show which encompassed the cycles of weddings and funerals. It started off well, balancing the processes of the auspicious 'red' and inauspicious 'white', and giving each equal screentime. However, the show started becoming draggy and they ended up focusing more on the wedding-side. The characters were rather one-sided but portrayed competently. Overall, it was a drama worth watching.
  • 进走出 The Family Court:

    I'm unable to comment on this drama as I had to give it a miss - I was too busy! But I've heard that it was quite a good show.
  • 最火搭档 Unriddle:

    This was the first blockbuster drama of the year. It was thrilling, and the characters were interesting. However, the thrill of the drama did not last very long. After a while, it got draggy, and the many unanswered questions made the story seem longer than it actually was. The revealation about the truth also happened too quickly. The pace was not very appropriate, and in some instances, it seemed like a comedy, because of the role Chen Liping portrayed. Overall, this drama had elements missing. The open-ending was also questionable; I'm not sure I'd like to watch Part2. <p>
  • 我在你左右 With You:

    There was nothing very special about the plot of this drama. The idea of a wandering spirit which only one person could see has been used many times. What made the show special was the cast, and brilliant chemistry between Chen Hanwei and Adrian Pang - this made the show stand-out. The ending was confusing and pretty unnecessary.

 

My choice: 破天网 Breakout. With no doubt, this was the most exciting drama of the year. Though it had its loopholes and a disastrous ending, it was thrilling and had characters you grew to love, sympathise and hate. A show which can make you laugh, cry, shout is a good one.

Which will win: 破天网 Breakout. This drama has the most nominations at this year's awards, and it is already obvious that this drama stands out among the rest.

Best Actor 最佳男主角

  • 铭顺 Christopher Lee破天网 Breakout》
  • 俊雄 Elvin Ng 《破天网 Breakout》
  • 戚玉武 Qi Yu Wu 《走进走出 The Family Court》
  • Shaun Chen 《想握你的手 Your Hand in Mine》
  • 斌辉 Tay Ping Hui 《走进走出 The Family Court》

 

  • 铭顺 Christopher Lee破天网 Breakout》:
    He did a good job as a down-and-out lawyer who was always moping around. His expressions were natural, but I'm not sure if that is enough to win; he has had better roles, where he shorne more.
  • 俊雄 Elvin Ng 《破天网 Breakout》:
    Who can ever forget Zou Jieming? Elvin Ng's acting had definitely improved by leaps and bounds, and he really stood out as Zou Jieming. The character was well-written, and very well portrayed. Time for Best Actor yet? I'm not sure. However, without the threat of Chen Hanwei this year, I think he has the chance as a black-horse.
  • 戚玉武 Qi Yu Wu 《走进走出 The Family Court》:
    I've said this many times, and will say it again. Qi Yu Wu should've won for his role in CID in 2006, but he wasn't even nominated then! I'm unable to judge his portrayal in this drama as I didn't watch it.
  • Shaun Chen 《想握你的手 Your Hand in Mine》:
    He's been promoted! Channel 8's favourite baddie has scored a Best Actor nomination for another baddie role! I didn't watch the show, but I've heard he was scary! I'm glad to see him finally recognised for his abilities, but a win at his first nomination seems unlikely, no matter how deserving. He is up against all the Ah-ges too.
  • 斌辉 Tay Ping Hui 《走进走出 The Family Court》:
    Can he finally get his Best Actor award? I'm unable to judge as I didn't watch this drama. <p>

My choice: I haven't watched 3 nominees' shows! How am I to judge? Elvin really did a good job, so I'm rooting for him.

Who will win: It's hard to say. Without Hanwei (Why?! - he had 2 outstanding works this year!) a winner is unclear. I think it's between Ping Hui and Yuwu.

Best Actress

<style></style>

最佳女主角

  • 陈莉萍 Chen Li Ping《最火搭档 Unriddle》
  • 萱 Jeanette Aw《破天网 Breakout》
  • 白薇秀 Joanne Peh《想握你的手 Your Hand in Mine》
  • 瑞恩 Rui En《我在你左右 With You》
  • <style></style><style></style>

    <span style="font-size: small;"> 颖 Zhou Ying《破天网 Breakout<span style="font-family: 华文细黑; color: #333333;" lang="EN-US">》

    <p></span></span>
  • 陈莉萍 Chen Li Ping《最火搭档 Unriddle》:
    I found her character rather irritating. She was great as comic relief, and her character did bring laughs to the otherwise serious police drama. However, it wasn't Li Ping's best role. She's done better.
  • 萱 Jeanette Aw《破天网 Breakout》:
    I really enjoyed watching her as a psychotic and mentally disturbed girl. Compared to the goodie, overcomes all odds characters she's used to playing (that role in the show went to Zhou Ying), she portrayed a character which you hated, yet sympathised with. With Jeanette's roles getting boring and predictable recently, this role reminded us again that she is capable of versatility.
  • 白薇秀 Joanne Peh《想握你的手 Your Hand in Mine》:
    I didn't watch this drama, so I'm unable to judge. This may be a bit early, but I hope she gets nominated for next year's Star Awards for her role in "A Tale of 2 Cities" =)
  • 瑞恩 Rui En《我在你左右 With You》:
    I have no idea why Rui-en was nominated for her role in this show. I felt that her role was miserable, and just got even more miserable as the show went on. Despite having 2 main roles in 2010, in "With You" and "Unriddle", her characters were not very outstanding.
  • 颖 Zhou Ying《破天网 Breakout》:
    As a newcomer, Zhou Ying has come far, and she did not disappoint in her first lead role. I felt that she portrayed her character's difficulties very well. For Best Actress, I still think it's a bit early.

 

My choice: Jeanette Aw. I've already said so above =)

Who will win: Jeanette Aw. Her role is the most outstanding this year, and she played it very well.

Best Supporting Actor 最佳男配角

  • 陈邦鋆 Andie Chen《三个女人一个宝 Precious Babes》
  • 林明伦 Darren Lim《破天网 Breakout》
  • 国辉 Terence Cao《五福到 The Best Things In Life》
  • 姚玟隆 Yao Wen Long《走进走出 The Family Court》
  • 缜翔 Zzen《最火搭档 Unriddle》

My choice: I didn't watch Andie, so I can't judge. My choice would be Darren Lim. He is great as a baddie, and in every baddie role he just gets more annoying and irritating. I felt like slapping his face everytime he appeared. Haha =D Terence Cao's role was rather forgettable. Didn't watch Yao Wen Long so I can't judge either. Zzen also did a good job in Unriddle, he was scary!

Who will win: Yao Wen Long. He's a very capable actor, and although I didn't see him in "The Family Court", he's a very consistent actor and plays all his roles convincingly.

Best Supporting Actress 最佳女配角

  • 郭舒贤 Ann Kok《走进走出 The Family Court》
  • 美珍 Cynthia Koh《过好年 Happy Family》
  • 林梅娇 Lin Mei Jiao《破天网 Breakout》
  • 潘玲玲 Pan Ling Ling 《破天网 Breakout》
  • 向云 Xiang Yun 《最火搭档 Unriddle》

My Choice: I didn't watch Ann, so I can't judge. Cynthia is at a disadvantage because "Happy Family" was aired so early last year; I can't really remember her in that show. Lin Mei Jiao's role as Zou Jieming's mother was loud and irritating, but it was real and convincing. Pan Ling Ling was also rather good in Breakout, I was entirely convinced that she was scared for her life. Xiang Yun's role in Unriddle was not that good, the character wasn't given room for development. So my choices are Lin Mei Jiao and Pan Ling Ling.

Who will win: It's a hard fight. I think Ann Kok or Pan Ling Ling.


<style></style>

Best Theme Song 最佳主题曲

  • 《破天网 Breakout》 - 网 / 信哲
  • 《红白囍事 New Beginnings》 - 在我左右 / 芝怡
  • 《五福到 The Best Things in Life》 - 知足 / 智诚
  • 《魔幻视界 The Illusionist》 - 化 / 维建
  • 《我在你左右 With You》 - . / 黄智

My Choice: I like New Beginnings. The song suited the show very well.

Which will win: I'm pretty sure Breakout theme will win. It is a pretty catchy song.

COMEBACK!

07Feb11

Dear Readers,

I'm finally making a comeback!

I've been really busy in 2010, and I promised to comeback in Dec 2010. Unfortunately, I was unable to spare the time! I delayed my comeback again to Feb 2011, and now, with the Star Awards 2011 nominations just out, this is definitely a good time to revive dramafocus! =)

Upcoming posts include:

  1. Star Awards 红星大奖 2011: nominees and thoughts
  2. Breakout 破天网: review
  3. 2010: The Year in Review
  4. Unriddle 最火搭档: review

 

I've skipped a great deal of dramas this year too, so I won't be covering them in my posts, only giving reasons why I skipped/missed them.

I will try my best to update the "Watch Online" and "Drama Songs" pages over at dfsources; please anticipate them!

I also know I've lost a lot of readers due to my constant lack of updates, but to my faithful readers and supporters, thank you =)

I really appreciate all the support (please tell your friends that dramafocus has come back to life!)

HERE'S WISHING EVERYONE A VERY HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

新年快乐!万事如意!

With You 我在你左右

16May10

OFFICIAL PAGE HERE =)

this series starts on 12th May 2010, at 9pm on Channel 8.

Adrian Pang as Zhou Wen An
Chen Han Wei as Zhang Yang
Rui En as Ye Si Qi
May Phua as Zhao Mei Xiang
Brandon Wong as Zhang Wei
Nat Ho as Zhang Huan
Chen Shu Cheng as Zhang Yong Sheng
Yan Yee as Lin Jie Ying

plot:
(from Mediacorp's official page)

Owner of a DIY shop, Zhou Wen An is a rough around the edges, yet easy-going man. He gets into a traffic accident with Zhang Yang, who is on his way home to celebrate his father's birthday. Wen An, who has a keen sixth sense, feels something amiss and advises Zhang Yang to stop riding the motorcycle. The latter refuses to listen and rides off. As a result of brakes damaged earlier, Zhang Yang dies when his motorcycle gets into a subsequent accident.

After passing on, Zhang Yang's soul is trapped at the accident site. Desperately trying to return home, Zhang Yang's attempts to seek help are futile as nobody can see or hear him. Just when he thinks all hopes are dashed, Wen An appears. Besides being able to see Zhang Yang, Wen An can also communicate with him. Zhang Yang begins to pester Wen An as he strongly believes that only Wen An can help him to return home. Not one to give in to threats, Wen An tries to shake Zhang Yang off, only to have Zhang Yang re-appearing next to him time and again. Seeing that Zhang Yang is a filial son, and feeling that he was indirectly responsible for Zhang Yang's death, Wen An decides to help the latter.

Wen An starts hanging out at the coffee shop own by Zhang Yang's father, Zhang Yong Sheng. His over enthusiasm has the Zhang family thinking he is out of his mind. Despite the Zhangs' reserved attitude towards him, Wen An continues to help Zhang Yang as promised.

After returning home, Zhang Yang realizes that he is neither able to converse with his family nor help them with their problems. Witnessing his family grieve over his passing makes Zhang Yang decide to help them move on.

Business at the coffee shop gets from bad to worse. Zhang Yang approaches Wen An to help Yong Sheng revamp and modernize his outdated coffee shop. In the midst of helping the family, Wen An triggers hostility with Zhang Yang's younger brother, Zhang Huan, who feels that Wen An is being too intrusive with their domestic affairs. Zhang Huan has also accumulated huge credit card debts, and wants to buy a car. To get the money, he collaborates with a contractor to earn commission from his own father. Zhang Huan's relationship with his father deteriorates when Yong Sheng reprimands him. As a result, the hostility between the two deepens.

Jie Ying, Zhang Huan's girlfriend, is a frank and lovable girl. While working on a short film on prostitutes, she meets Wen An, who mistakes her for one. When Jie Ying decides to film a short movie on the supernatural, she pesters Wen An for his help as the latter had told her about Zhang Yang's existence. Slowly, Jie Ying finds herself attracted to Wen An and finds herself drifting away from Zhang Huan, whom she feels is too eager for success. Once again, Zhang Huan fails to see where the problem lies and pins the blame on Wen An. Zhang Huan becomes more resentful towards Wen An and accuses Wen An of being the third wheel in his relationship with Jie Ying.

After the death of Zhang Yang, Yong Sheng tries his best to keep the family together. Yet no one knows the pain he has to go through, with his youngest son causing trouble and his eldest son Zhang Wei facing domestic issues.

Easy-going by nature, Zhang Wei does not expect much from life. His only wish is to help his father keep the coffee shop. Zhang Wei's wife, Mei Xiang, feels insecure about their future. When it is announced that Yong Sheng will be modernizing the coffee shop to fulfill Zhang Yang's wish, Mei Xiang begins to make plans to safeguard her own interests for fear of being left in destitute as soon as Yong Sheng passes on.

Initially forced to care for Si Qi and her daughter, Wei Wei, Wen An soon develops a newfound respect for Si Qi when he witnesses how Si Qi faces her problems courageously - from losing her husband to discovering she's pregnant with his child to learning about a tumor in her womb. She even had to deal with the posthumous knowledge of her husband's infidelity. This knowledge deals a greater blow to her than news of his death. Emotionally drained and exhausted, Si Qi decides to leave the love she has for Zhang Yang behind, and move on.

Zhang Yang notices that Si Qi has grown to depend more and more on Wen An, and has begun treating him as her confidante. Overwhelmed by jealousy, Zhang Yang has a clash with Wen An. As a result, Wen An begins to avoid Si Qi. Over time, Si Qi starts to believe in Zhang Yang's existence as she realizes how similar Wen An is to Zhang Yang. She takes the initiative to get closer to him.

interesting info:

  • this is Adrian Pang and Nat Ho's last drama. Adrian Pang has already left Mediacorp, while Nat Ho leaves in June.
  • Rui En and Chen Han Wei have collaborated together in 2007's Metamorphosis, 2008's By My Side, and last year's My School Daze.
  • Nat Ho's character is similar to his character in Priceless Wonder, where's he dates a rich girl.

[can't think of anymore at the moment]

->more from 8gg...

thoughts:

Chen Han Wei (4-time Star Awards Best Actor), and Adrian Pang (Best Actor at the Asian Television Awards) are our two main leads! i'm sure the acting won't disappoint for sure! As for the plot, it's quite funny 'cos Adrian Pang once played a character who could see a ghost (Fiona Xie) in Ch5's Maggi & Me!

thoughts after 2 episodes:

I think the plot is pretty interesting. Each of Han Wei's family members had a part to play in his death. His sister-in-law kept rushing Adrian Pang, and that was how they collided, and Han Wei's brakes didn't work after that. Nat Ho was being totally awful to an old woman who collected cans, and purposely threw his empty can out the window and drive over it, crushing it. It was because the old woman was trying to retrieve the can Nat threw that she was in the middle of the road and Han Wei, in order to avoid her, crashed and died.

The pace of the drama is pretty slow at the moment, especially during those emotional parts. I like how they do a split-screen when Han Wei is around his family members. This method is very fresh, and it gives the drama a different dimension. Sometimes it feels as if we're watching a behind-the-scenes kind of thing haha!

Adrian Pang is great! He's so natual and his and Han Wei's roles compliment each other so well.

I'll be looking forward to more =)

Best Actress 最佳女主角  - Chen Li Ping 陈莉萍 <团圆饭 Reunion Dinner>

article: No Best Actress win for Ann Kok and Jeanette Aw

My thoughts: Liping? her 2nd win, and it's already been 7 years since Holland V? how time flies! looks like Reunion Dinner is the top winner of the night with both Best Supporting Actor and Best Actress! =) and Ah-gong and his daughter-in-law no less. i really can't ask for more. it wasn't what i expected - Paul Chan predicted rightly! - but who can complain about Liping? =)

Top 10 Male – Dai Yang Tian戴阳天, Elvin Ng 黄俊雄,Bryan Wong 王禄江, Qi Yu Wu 戚玉武, Chen Han Wei 陈汉伟, Tay Ping Hui 郑斌辉, Zhang Yao Dong 张耀栋, Zheng Ge Ping 郑各平, Dennis Chew 周崇庆, Guo Liang 郭亮

Top 10 Female – Quan Yi Fong 权怡凤, Xiang Yun 向云, Rui En 瑞恩,Vivian Lai 赖怡玲, Michelle Chia 谢韵仪, Jesseca Liu 刘芷绚, Yvonne Lim 林湘萍, Felicia Chin 陈静瑄, Jeanette Aw 欧萱, Joanne Peh 白薇秀

My thoughts: no Ann! didn't expect Yi Fong to get it! as for the rest... they like giving the princesses surprises and keep them at the edge of their seats - last year it was Jeanette and this year it was Joanne! =)

Final thoughts: it was a great awards show! everyone deserved the awards. there were no shocking wins, or jaw-dropping results which made the crowd to 'huh'. it was as good an awards show as i could've expected =) but they still had the time-buzzer thing! glad they made it quite subtle, but some artistes still got cut off in the middle of their speeches! congratulations to all the winners, nominees, and everyone present. the atmosphere was so lively, the show went on with no glitches. thank you everyone for their hardwork, especially the backstage personnel who worked the hardest. till next year!
