【Manju 漫劇】Drunk in Love 一醉經年 (The 188 Series)

Just came across this manhua drama of Drunk in Love, or also translated as Years of Intoxication 一醉經年 (one of the 188 series), hmmm, very surprised indeed! I knew the novel has been serialised into manhua since the beginning of this year, but it looks like they have turned it into something called manju now… Manju is a new term meaning a combination of manhua + video + drama, so it is still slightly different to dongman or donghua.

Light the Night 華燈初上 (Taiwanese Series OST)

Light the Night 華燈初上 is a new Taiwanese webdrama that premiered on November 26, 2021. It will consist of 3 seasons of 8 episodes each, so a total of 24 episodes. The first season of 8 episodes are now all available to stream online, the premiere date of the subsequent two seasons are yet to be confirmed.

The drama is set in the 1980s in Taiwan, so the OST has some cover songs from that era which was originally sung by the very popular Taiwanese singer, Teresa Teng 鄧麗君. One of her signature songs very well-known throughout the Chinese community around the world, The Moon Represents My Heart 月亮代表我的心, is now covered by Ashin 阿信 (vocalist of Mayday 五月天) as the opening theme song for the soundtrack!


Snackmasters Australia (2021)

Filed under: Miscellaneous & TV Shows — SeaDragon @ 12:00 pm

Snackmasters is a new cooking competition show that will premiere on Monday, November 29, 2021 on Channel 9 at 7:30pm. It was supposed to premiere a week earlier but a last-minute move was made by the channel to delay the premiere by a week in order to avoid crashing with the finale of Celebrity MasterChef Australia on Channel 10, which in turns moved the finale a day later from Sunday November 21, 2021 to Monday, November 22, 2021 last week. Ahhh, another day, another cat-and-mouse scheduling of TV shows in Australia, LOL…

Very surprised to find this! This is the Thai cover of the hit Mandarin song from 2019 originally sang by en which I posted previously. This Thai version has just been released in Taiwan and I’m not sure if it has already been released in Thailand or if it has an official Thai MV for the song as I could not find any information for that.

WBL Boys’ Vacation 微波爐男孩的假期 (Taiwanese Reality TV OST)

WBL Boys’ Vacation is an 8-episode reality TV show featuring the 6 actors from the two seasons of the WBL TV series from earlier this year. It premiered on November 12, 2021 and will continue airing new episode every Friday night. Very interesting with the play on words with the WBL name in Chinese 微波爐 which means microwave oven, so in Chinese the title translated as Microwave Oven Boys’ Vacation, LOL… Well, it is because the pinyin of 微波爐 is wei bo lu which abbreviated as wbl, very clever, LOL… It also has the connotation that they are the generation who only know how to use microwave oven and don’t know how to cook, and now they have to go camping without any microwave oven! Anyway the audio theme song has just been released and it is performed by the 6 actors. The official MV of the song will premiere on November 19, 2021.
