Tagged, You’re It!

I don’t know what’s the purpose of this post, but it’s just another excuse for me being random, I guess. But anyway, like the title said, it’s about tags. Since I usually hide my tags, this is what this post is all about. Yes, me sharing the most popular tags circulating my blog.

tags

So let’s get started on the top ones. I know it seems obvious with who’s leading by looking at ‘Categories’, but the ‘Categories’ count is misleading. It’s because sometimes I tag people or topics but I don’t put it in ‘Categories’ because it belongs to ‘General’ only or such. So in this post, I will disclose the exact number as of the time of the cap above (which is actually Friday, January 24th in case anyone wants to keep track). I’ll list it backwards so it would get even more exciting to see who’s the real winner, lol.

AND THE GRAND WINNER IS

Zhao Jun Ya

WITH 128 POSTS

Who knew, right? Well, I sort of knew he was one of the top 5. Yet I didn’t realize he ended up leading. Nice?

What about the others? It’s obvious from the majority of the people, it was because of Rookies’ Diary at one point that cranked the stats up for them. 43 episodes and they ended up with lots and lots of posts. It’s the same for some others, as long as I do some episode summary or recaps of stuffs, they would benefit from it. However, the ones truly gaining posts because I had posted about them since the beginning are Xiao Xiao Yu, Tang Feng, Qiao Qiao, Jacky, Wallace, Cyndi, Nic, Ady, Angela, Hu Ge, and 183 Club. Calvin and Jiro only came into the picture in later years since I wasn’t that into Fahrenheit from the start, considering how some fans were scaring me away more than get into them. Too bad Chun didn’t make it into the most used tags because he only have 9 posts. YES, sadly. But not too bad since it was partially due to my laziness with updating on him. And yeah, same with Will as in he came into the picture later for me than the initial obsessions with some people.

So, talking about the top 5, excluding FTV (since I already explained how it had to do with their dramas), what about them? Jacky made it, Wallace didn’t, why? Um, like I mentioned many times before, I listen to music more than watch stuffs. Wallace just got really unlucky because at times, I couldn’t find time to catch up on his stuffs or I decided to give up. *shrugs* Jacky’s posts only slowed down when I was so mad at him that I didn’t want to bother anymore. Yet he always managed to find his way back into my posts somehow. (YES, he’s evil. He knows some voodoo OR something.) Moving on, it’s too obvious that Qiao Qiao would gain so many posts on my blog, but what was surprising was finding out she lost to Tang Feng. Then I realized the same thing that had happened with most of the people mentioned here. Rookies’ Diary happened, lol. Have no fear though, several more posts then Qiao Qiao would pass him to claim the 3rd spot. (LOL!) Now, about the little fish, lol. Xiao Xiao Yu had a lot of advantage because of the amount of summary posts I did. She would have more if I had continued on with updating some of the summaries. Yet that’s not too bad with being in the 2nd spot – only 3 posts behind Jun Ya. And talking about Jun Ya, how in the world did it happen with me only blogging about him since like 3 years ago? I don’t know. It just happened. I only managed to slow down a tad because I got occupied with other real life matters, and then there was the whole thing about his dramas being a tad vague like for the last bit of 2013. Yeah, he practically fell off the radar after “Lucky Touch” though I did hear some new drama in progress at that time, but I wasn’t too sure. It wasn’t until now that I could be sure of something and could continue with updates again. In fact, there are several posts in the background regarding him but I still haven’t gotten around to it yet. At least not in a sense of a good post. But as I’m writing this, I realize before this post publishes, Jun Ya will jump up 5 more totaling his posts count to 133. So yes, he will continue to lead even though Achel, Joanne, and Jacky will jump up in posts as well.

Oh yeah, I initially didn’t want to tag them in this post since it would be too funny. It’s like “Are you kidding me? Tag them in the tag post?” kind of thing. But I decided to tag them anyway, but will minus one the next time I update on the tags again. Nice? So see you next time! Whenever that is that I feel crazy enough to get random about tags again. But I probably will only update on the top 10, and it will be on people, skipping topics/titles/station names. And who will gain the upper hand with the next update? Who knows?

Rookies’ Diary: Couples

As the title indicated, I want to focus on the couples in the drama for this post. I think what made this drama good for me was having romance BUT did not focus only on one or two couples yet extended to include stories involving all couples – whether major or minor, making it even more realistic. Not to mention how it didn’t just focus on the ‘love’ part and astray from the whole military theme. The romance was only a part of it, and that was enough for me.

The following will include all possible couples from part 1 and 2 – though I won’t include the really far-fetched ones:

Sun An Bang (Yao Yuan Hao) and  Qiu Jing Wen (Novia Lin). Are they cute or what? Well, in their own way. I like how it appeared that he was the strong one and she was the weakling YET they (the script-writers) extended that whole thing with making her being the only one that could tease him and how he would go clueless when he was around her. Well, somewhat at first. That was interesting since he seemed so tough the majority of the drama. It was different to show that he reacted differently around her. Then there was the whole thing with her not being able to tell directions at times, which restored their balance since she had a mix of this and that within her. Not too one dimensional or cliches either. They seriously complimented each other quite well with their own talents/abilities and/or personalities.

Sun An Bang (Yao Yuan Hao) and Jin Bi Ying (Debbie Huang). The reason why this pairing wouldn’t work is too obvious. Not because I support the other pairing since Jing Wen appeared later on, etc. But it was more like he couldn’t really relax around Bi Ying, and even though she did show her support toward him but he was just too serious around her. Treating her like a friend was already a push for him because he would often refer to her – or at least seemed to act that way around her – with her ranks and much respect in regard to that. Not to mention how they couldn’t communicate too well at times, like her jokes were lost on him, lol.

Yang Hai Sheng (Fu Zi Chun) and Zheng Yu Ting (Ye Jia Yu). A mixture of cuteness and cleverness, lol. Their banter was quite addicting to watch. They seriously were somewhat of a cliche couple with her liking him since little and him being somewhat of a player and all. But it wasn’t unrealistic or too dramatic so it was a nice touch. Their constant challenge – whether known or unknown by both parties – were too hilarious. What made the whole thing even more addicting to watch was not making one or the other too weak. She was seriously too cute but wasn’t clueless about things. Though at times she faked innocence to lure him into her traps but it was quite graceful how she did it. She did go overboard that one time but it somewhat made him realize about his past behaviors and the funniest thing was using his morbid mode to deceive her (with Da Tong’s help). YET when she found out, it was all over again with the competition, LOL! Anyway, they were on the same level but their story differed from the other couples’ hence making it unique for the overall drama.

Lin Bo Wen (Derek Chen) and Tian Xin (Kelly Pai). A somewhat lost cause for them already but maybe they could start anew in the future? Considering how Bo Wen had seriously thought things over, wanting to do more with his life than just focusing on love? Maybe after some time apart and pursuing their own path, they could one day reunite?

Yu Shan Ren (Ah Pang) and Wang Sheng Nan (Liu Xiang Ci). Okay, from past posts, it’s obvious that I’m shifting for this pairing more than the other. And again, it was mostly due to the fact that the script-writers had teased us so much at the beginning with their possible pairing. AND oh hey, they did have chemistry. There were hilarious scenes as well as scenes where he was quite considerate toward her. I honestly think they compliment each better since they were on opposite sides. He was more relaxed at times and was quite supportive of her when she wanted to conquer her fear or other times where he cheered her up. She could get quite worked up with his pervert behaviors at times or when he was goofing off too much, but it was still funny and enjoyable. And maybe I’m just too stubborn. But maybe it was better they didn’t end up together because of the lapse between their ranks. Well, like he would care so much, but who knows what happens in the future? Off screen though, I thought they had a lot of chemistry as well. Maybe because they worked together hosting on that one show so they understood many of the subtle signals at times. (I’m talking about their signals during one of the concerts.)

Luo Gang (Tang Feng) and Wang Sheng Nan (Liu Xiang Ci). They matched wit-per-wit already, not backing down regardless of how much they care for one another. I have mixed feelings for them at times. It’s not only because of the reasons mentioned above (aka shifting toward Shan Ren and Sheng Nan) more but it had to do with the clashes in their personalities. But was glad that they ended up together anyway, considering how they really cared for one another. (AND it would be a shame if she had to settle.)

Cai Hao Zhi (Hao Zi) and Liu Su Qing (Becky Chang). Not really my favorite couple. Though I no longer blame her for her schemes at the beginning. Maybe because the show already ended so I don’t really care anymore. But their story wasn’t as appealing to me. Okay, so they had their fair share of moments too with him being jealous and finally realizing he did care for her. Yet I guess I wasn’t into the formula for their story. I admit their story indeed was quite different from the others too since she was quite daring, fighting for her love. Yet I wasn’t as into it.

Cai Hao Zhi (Hao Zi) and Ye Xiao Yan (Achel Chang). It was only a little scheme with Hao Zhi trying to get Su Qing jealous but I thought they were quite cute together too, acting so close and all. LOL! It sparked some jealousy from Wu Yong as well. And it was really a riot. One of those classic moments.

Qiu Yu Shun (Ah Xiang) and Ye Xiao Yan (Achel Chang). At first, I thought they were really cute together and would make it to the end – with the possibility that Da Tong would approve more. Like those typical formula with earning the older brother’s trust. Yet it wasn’t so since You Shun’s one wrong decision tore them apart. The others understood his situation and Xiao Yan understood too later on. Yet the trust was already gone and perhaps call it that they didn’t pass the test. NOT that I don’t like them because I was really into them at first too hence I was really tore between him and Wu Yong later on – as to who she should end up with. I guess the plot development did make sense so I can’t complain about that.

Wang Wei (Zhao Jun Ya) and Yan Xiao Rou (Tang Zhen). Okay, did I say the others were cute? I think I overused it already. But I don’t know. It’s hard not to use it on these two. I think out of all the pairings, they had the least screen times together yet the point wasn’t miss. They were mad cute all right. She was somewhat a klutz and perhaps a tad on the naive side? YET it wasn’t too fake either. It was enough. He was sort of protective of her at times and was really patient with her, especially trying to help her gain confidence during the haircut incident. Then there was also the whole thing with shielding her from Shan Ren’s teasing words, lol. Their other scenes were equally addicting to watch, especially the scene where he was tending to her hand – because she cut herself. (DARN, clumsy girl all right.) But he was really attentive and dropped his books right away to go and take care of her. Aww… What was kind of funny was how he asked her out later but didn’t know the difference between a typical dinner and a date? OR was that it? I had somewhat forgot already. Need to watch again later. But it was really cute seeing the role reversal with her being the one ‘knowing it’ while he was somewhat clueless. He was so boyish at that point and she somewhat became the experienced one.

Wu Yong (Xia Zheng Feng) and Ye Xiao Yan (Achel Chang). OMG, I didn’t see it coming since though it seemed like they were the odd bickering couple but I thought it was just him liking to tease her. Like sometimes it happen with the older bro’s friend. YET it showed some possibilities when the guys saw her at the pool swimming and they had the challenge. They were honestly too cute later on though. Not that they weren’t at first. Their story was really well developed – with how it wasn’t really trying to convince. Maybe because it was the lapse in the story at times so it wasn’t forcing us into acknowledging them but more like it fitted in perfectly with other events of the story. (Just like most of the relationships in here.) The transition with their story and how their feelings changed toward one another – mostly for the better – was really nice. Like I said already, not forced at all. It was just how it happened with her and You Shun, and she needed time to cool down before she would realize of Wu Yong’s existence. Okay, she knew he was around BUT he was still her brother’s annoying friend. But her views changed toward him later. It was slowly as well. They (the script-writers) had him liking her and realizing her considerate side first, and then moving on to develop her side of the story. The result? Tying it together at last. Quite suitable.

So, what about favorite couples? Well, I’ll be lying if I say I don’t have a particular favorite and all couples contributed to the story. True that they all did. But my favorites are actually a toss between Hai Sheng and Yu Ting, Wang Wei and Xiao Rou, and finally Wu Yong and Xiao Yan. What about the others? Um…it either didn’t happen or I felt kind of robbed, LOL! I did get over it already, especially An Bang and Jing Wen AND Shan Ren and Sheng Nan, but that did not mean I would let it go completely. What about least favorite? Hao Zhi and Su Qing, and then Bo Wen and Tian Xin. It would be too unrealistic if I say I like those two couples as well. Hao Zhi and Su Qing were too silly for me at times. Then there was the whole poor timing toward the end with putting in their get together. (Yeah, the part where Luo Gang was still moping in the hospital and all. Though I’m being somewhat unfair because they did have the get together with the other guys at Wu Yong’s place too BUT that seemed less random? I don’t know.) Regarding Bo Wen and Tian Xin, again, NOT about blaming her but I found them kind of too boring, lol. NOT their characters, just their story together, etc. Kind of cliches and somewhat too dramatic.

Okay, so I’m not  going to include part 2 anymore because honestly, it focused on the operations most of the time. Though there were obvious signs of some people pursuing others YET they had no wrap up? OR had no time? So I’ll skip that for now. Maybe I’ll come back later. We’ll see. Possibly I need a second watch to discuss more.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, but what made me love the whole formula of this drama is seeing how they didn’t force a new pairing into the picture when they entered part 2 – even though some of the characters’ significant others weren’t around anymore. Like how they did mention Hai Sheng and Yu Ting and also Wu Yong and Xiao Yan. It was an ongoing story and it made sense that those characters didn’t appear in part 2. But it did not mean they needed to break Wu Yong and Xiao Yan up and made him pair up with one of the new characters. The consistency made it even more realistic and lovable. Like one person not being around did mean he/she had to be replaced. Xiao Yan wasn’t around but it did not mean she ceased to exist just because the focus was no longer on the base (and other characters there). I will admit I was scared they would pair Wu Yong up with one of the new characters as well. Though I have no problems with the additional female characters in part 2, but I was against the idea of establishing a new relationship just like that. I meant it wouldn’t make sense that it took Wu Yong and Xiao Yan so much to get together and then break up just because? YEAH, so I was glad no one pulled that trick in part 2. (BEAT THAT TVB! YES, childish, but I had to put that in.)

And that wraps up the discussion for this time. What’s the topic for the next time? Favorite characters?

Rookies’ Diary: The Finale

The journey is finally over for those who had been tuned in since last summer. I will definitely be missing it – regardless of the mixed feelings I have throughout watching the show. The positive just overrides the intense moments. I think those who declared not to watch part 2 missed a major part and a priceless moment that they would’ve loved.

Ta-da! Yup, Luo Gang re-emerged in episode 20 working at a fruits farm. He had promised Sheng Nan to turn a new leaf, stay out of trouble and meet her again on her birthday, which was supposedly 6 months later. What else does it call for? The triangle that I said wasn’t even resolved yet in the other post. So I didn’t miss anything after all. People are going to love FTV for this since they managed to pull it off – even if Tang Feng/ Luo Gang seemed to be forgotten for the first 19 episodes. (Not totally since Sheng Nan did mention him at various points.)

Credit:

I thought they were going to forget it too since Tang Feng had to shoot ‘Father & Son’ at the same time, etc. However, they managed to squeeze it in, giving the audience the final answer. I sort of have the feeling the audience will never forgive FTV if they didn’t resolve this. They did put us through one season of agonizing tennis, right? (Yes, the ball being bounced back and forth between Luo Gang and Shan Ren.) It was too hard to believe that Sheng Nan would settle for Shan Ren after developing their bonds even more in season 2. Why? It’s not that I wouldn’t like the story of how she’s touched with Shan Ren’s actions hence giving him a chance. But it was way more obvious already that she loves Luo Gang, so why settle?

Though it was more like Shan Ren let go, allowing Luo Gang and Sheng Nan a chance without any hesitation at last. YET Luo Gang and Sheng Nan are both very strong characters. They wouldn’t be feeling guilty or bad just because Shan Ren likes Sheng Nan. Why should they be sorry for loving each other, right? But I thought that was kind of funny that they were wrapping everything at the part where it would determine whether Shan Ren would make it or not. After all, Shan Ren had chosen to join Wang Wei and the others to continue that journey of training and staying within the military. Yes, he finally found something that he could follow besides Sheng Nan.

Do I have to remind people that I’m a Shan Ren/Sheng Nan shipper? Yet I won’t resort to all those name calling towards the other side like some Luo Gang/Sheng Nan shippers have been doing. If you’re not one of them, I’m not talking about you. With that said, I’m so glad the writers made Sheng Nan ended up with Luo Gang. Fans would be happy. (AND I already said numerous times already that I’m a Tang Feng fan, but I don’t just support blindly if I don’t feel strongly toward a couple. Though I can accept the final outcome. I don’t think I need to justify myself even more.) No more wars or attacks about whether it was pathetic that Luo Gang lost, right? Since after all, he didn’t lose. In a way, I’m very glad because he could start over, but also get the girl. NOT seeming so depressing and hopeless like the end of season 1. (Though he did think it through when they wrapped up season 1 but it just seemed so sad for his case.) But after seeing him working hard at the fruits farm and is full of hope again made everything better. His dark moods being gone made things tenfold better as well. It meant he had let go of that dark past already. Who said the main guy had to be the hero to be the winner, right? He had lost the other chance, but that didn’t mean the end of the world. There are still other alternatives of it. (And it wasn’t like he didn’t get to be the hero since we did see the rescue scene at the beginning of episode 22 AND how his righteousness had gotten him into some disagreements with Chen Pai Zhang. But I so support Chen Pai Zhang at that part since the kids’ parents should be responsible for looking after the kids, NOT the military. They already put up bunch of signs to warn others AND not to mention how one of the officers on duty already told the kids about the dangers.)

Enough about that since I think some others deserve some spotlights too? LOL! Who to talk about first? Or actually what?

My favorite team in here. Yet I felt disappointed that they didn’t get more scenes near the end. I meant like to the ending to show their bond. Yeah, sure, we get it that they’re close and are pals. But I honestly want to see more. Just a little more. It’s just off to see Luo Gang support Shan Ren and try to encourage him on – though through reverse psychology. It’s just off even if I want to see Luo Gang get some sort of action toward the end as well. Why? Wang Wei has been helping Shan Ren subtly since the beginning and they have been consistent throughout with making fun of each other or even during the trials. Yet they only get a bit of a few wisecracks after everything was taken care of? What I thought was cool was the part where Shan Ren conned Wang Wei into thinking they would have the face-off. It was the chance for them to see who was really the better one. LOL! Hilarious since Shan Ren tricked Wang Wei and fled. That’s why I feel the more that Wang Wei should be the one beside Shan Ren, helping him get through the last bit, not Luo Gang. Or was that scene near the end with Luo Gang helping him and cheering him on – along with Sheng Nan – a key scene to allow him to make the decision about letting go? Maybe…YET it made me feel they lost momentum with separating Wang Wei and Shan Ren into two teams near the end. I had enjoyed their reunion at last with fighting by each other’s side again like brothers YET it had to turn out that way. A shame, but I won’t dwell too much. Can’t protest anyway because it already ended and no one cares that much like me.

What was a bit disappointing and extremely saddening? Enson Chang’s accident hence him not being able to have more scenes in here. No one wanted it to happen and glad that he had been recovering since then. However, I was really looking forward to watching him.

What was somewhat interesting yet turned out too hilarious? Ah Xiang and Hao Zi weren’t in season 2 yet they were listed in the opening credits. Nice? Was I the only one being confused? What in the world happened? And their appearances in the flashbacks DO NOT count.

Oh yeah, one last item for this one. This totally got me going. Wu Yong got robbed during the last bit of it. I meant he was impressive with his vast knowledge of the jungle/forest, etc. How could he fail so miserably near the end? Okay, so the other team followed Shan Ren’s plan and won because Shan Ren was so cunning (and I so believe that). And I don’t really care who wins since they all passed anyway, but it was like Wu Yong practically went into the shadow. He got forgotten just like Wang Wei. I just can’t accept that (and will probably have to live with it since like I said before, no one cares as much as me about the little details). So Wu Yong trapped Shan Ren and let him go that one time AND Shan Ren was going to repay him YET it was a trap? A TAD too messed up with Shan Ren trying to win. Though they probably didn’t care since they were good sports about it but it made it a bit less challenging with Shan Ren’s team winning all the time. I actually thought some of the others on Wang Wei’s side weren’t that bad with their techniques. How could they lose so badly? Or be that careless? It made them too much of a joke because they were after all part of the Special Operations Force after all, right?

I’ll save other stuffs for the next time when I do a different post about this drama. YES, there are more. Yet don’t want to say too much for now.

Rookies’ Diary: Episode 43

*WARNING*: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD. If you DO NOT want to be spoiled, please DO NOT read. You have been warned.

Nightfall. The festival started. Heart-warming, eh?

Anyway, that was sooo wrong with Hai Sheng pushing the other guys out so Yu Ting could have a place to sit. Yet still funny. LOL! Of course Wu Yong and Xiao Yan were fighting again! Cute! Such an uplifting atmosphere.

Yup, just a matter of time before he would escape. Too bad he got caught. Or could it be for the better? For the first time, I think Sheng Nan’s not pushing him. Sure, sometimes gotta push him so he wouldn’t give up, etc. Yet I think he needs time to cool down on his own and think it through more carefully. (Like she just said.)

How sloppy could they get? And they expect Luo Gang to not know? NICE! Tian Bin sprayed it all over Ding Hao! LOL! How in the world would they know, right? Oh well! LOL! Revenge? Was Ding Hao exaggerating? Possible but they didn’t know?

Ding Hao was joking? LOL! OKAY… They want Ding Hao to sing? Aww…yup, revenge time all right. Oh well…and I thought he was going to sing. Wow, everyone was indeed present. Man, Luo Gang is their pride after all. Everyone was there for his birthday. AND I mean the officers. Aww…Ding Hao knew it. He was trying to cover up for Luo Gang when An Bang was about to confess.

And then Luo Gang arrived. YAY! Yup, Sheng Nan’s words sank in. But of course he had to have time to think it over as well. One more thing resolved.

Nothing like a celebration to clear away everything, right? And yup, Shi Jun’s definitely wrapping things up with his narration. (Once again confirm my suspicion that the story was told from his POV.)

They were back again. Yup, break time’s over. Shi Jun and Wu Yong are preparing again. Cool. The other two just make me want to punch them out, thinking like that. AND right…were they seriously thinking that person would carry through? Who were they kidding? Relying on connections? Yup! Hai Sheng opened their eyes! LOL! Sounds familiar? YUP! So why don’t they just forget it. What? Why were they jinxing Hai Sheng? MEAN! They must be jealous! Wow, Shi Jun’s words… And suddenly they were all practicing, except for Hai Sheng who was standing there thinking to himself. Great…

Here they all were. What’s really going on here? What? Hai Sheng’s bailing out? Just like that? The others’ words got to him? Lai Hu and Da Tong’s reactions is irking me to pieces, especially Lai Hu. Since Hai Sheng and Luo Gang helped him so much. He should’ve thought it through more carefully than just the whole ‘following the crowd’ thing before diving in then. Honestly. Great that Sheng Nan said it’s too late. That just means that Hai Sheng can’t leave, right? And YES, thank you, Wu Yong. He said it all. They’ve been through so much, why give up just like that? At least it’s too late now, after all the damage has been done. Wow, Sheng Nan confide to them regarding her fear of heights? Well, was just using that as an example to help them overcome obstacles. So funny that Shi Jun was the one who cracked the joke about no wonder Shan Ren like Sheng Nan so much. AND Wu Yong wants to back out? Da Tong hit him? LOL! But it was because Da Tong wants to go after Sheng Nan himself? Well, was just worshiping her. BUT still…if he want to, he should get past Luo Gang and Shan Ren first.

Gathering for the last time before separating to go to their assigned base? Another powerful speech from Ding Hao. Of course a last encouraging speech from An Bang. That was interesting that Hai Sheng requested for a few words with Shan Ren, LOL! Shan Ren was trying to keep a straight face but we could see he was actually smiling, proud of himself. Or was it acknowledging their friendship? Possibly both. Clever exchange. Luo Gang still want to compete with Hai Sheng? I meant regarding how he has something to say as well. JUST KIDDING…for old time’s sake. Yup, Luo Gang has to have the last word before the whole series ends. OR NOT…Lai Hu just ruined the moment. I know he wants to thank An Bang too BUT I prefer leaving the last note on Luo Gang. Oh well… And then everyone else got into the thanking mode that seems a bit overkilled? Oh well… But An Bang’s words were always effective and efficient, nothing more, nothing less. Just right. At least Wu Yong’s words weren’t too cheesy? Well, he’s not the type to be all that so… To wrap it up, all the major characters have some sort of ‘thank you’ message in before it ends. NICE? Then Hai Sheng saved the day by starting the song and prompting others to join in. Then the officers joined in as well. Indeed, a memorable ending.
