Taiwanese Drama: Skip BeatThursday, March 06, 2014
Just finish watching Skip Beat and I dont like this Asian drama. Although there are parts that made me laugh but still some parts are over acting. After watching I feel like Ive wasted my time...This drama is actually an adaptation from a Japanese manga by Yoshiki Nakamura.
My only consolation in this drama is that Siwon and Donghae are so handsome that it made me watch every episode to the end even though I am so annoyed with the female lead. I don't like the female lead character, she is too immature. No wonder the ending was like that. Ah! Come to think of it I like how they end drama. Not the usual happy ending but definitely not the kind that left you hanging.
High school graduate Gong Xi gives up her chances for university in order to support her childhood friend and romantic goal, Bu Po Shang, in his pop idol career. Upon arriving in Taipei, Gong Xi starts working on multiple jobs in order to support Shang, whose popularity quickly rises, eventually becoming one of the top idols in Taiwan. One day, Gong Xi catches Shang flirting with his manager, and learns that he only used her so she can help him with his living expenses. Heart-broken and betrayed, Gong Xi vows to get revenge by becoming a bigger star. Gong Xi auditions for L.M.E., Taiwan's largest talent agency, and joins L.M.E.'s new-found department "Love Me" with Jiang Nanqin, also a new recruit. At L.M.E. famous actor Dunhe Lian, disgusted by Gong Xi's reasons for joining the show business, consistently finds ways to annoy and taunt her. As Gong Xi's acting career starts to take off, she begins to discover a new sense of identity and purpose, separate from her initial plans of revenge. Lian also eventually warms up to her, and although at first in denial, he finds himself falling more and more in love with her.
This Taiwanese drama is airing locally at ABS-CBN channel but I dont know what time slot. Here is the localize trailer of Skip Beat.
