RIP DRAMAFEVER!

The asian drama and movie streaming site been recently shut Down in October 16, 2018. It was my main go to site to watch kdramas. I found it by watching My Girl 2009. An hk drama fan recommended me to watch some korean romance comedies My Girl, Full House, Delightful Girl Choon Hyang. DramaFever kinda made my life easier finding some old and new kdramas to watch.

I used to interact with DramaFever on their facebook fanpage and got to know the staff and the fans. When I first created my twitter account, I first followed DramaFever and tweeted at them. They followed me back a few days later. Then I got to interact and tweet with DramaFever Staff and fans. I got to know some kdrama bloggers and fans from them. Those were the time before DramaFever was sold to Warner Bros. Fun times. I also knew some of my closest asian american girl friends who are both DramaFever Staff and fans. I sometimes give some ideas to DramaFever and bloggers and vloggers on kdrama topics. Some of my closest dramaFever bloggers and buddies are YamiHelen, DapowerZ, Zoe Kpoptv, and NancyZDramaland. It was good time networking with DramaFever.

Now DramaFever is gone, I would recommend watching kdramas and cdramas on Viki, or youtube, or on other sites you can find. You can also buy them on Yesasia.

She almost got burnt by Chi Chan. The maid said Lei Xuan was just lucky for picking up the manuel. They have to be careful of demons. Chur Wun looked at the drawing of her and Lei Xuan. Chur Wun reads the manuel of her feelings with Lei Xuan. If they are fated to be a couple but they have different tastes. If they stay together, there’s hope of love but if leave each other they will be hurt. Ao Gum brought food for the elder man at the temple. The elder man is scared of other people stealing golds. He and Ao Gum locked the doors. Chur Wun asked Lei Xuan a question from the manuel. Lei Xuan told Chur Wun to not read this manuel anymore. Ao Gum told Lei Xuan that something happened to the elder man. Ao Gum went in the elder man’s temple. The elder man said he spent the night digging this large hole. He digs more holes so people won’t know where’s the gold is located. Chu Wun made desserts for her father and told him to not make him come home. Chur Wun’s father sighed that Lei Xuan’s previous two generations were high ranked official so he married Lei Xuan to her. Lei Xuan came and asked Chur Wun’s father why must they give golds to the victims of the burnt land. He asked him they must paid ten times of the price of land.

The elder man search for the gold. Lei Xuan, Chur Wun and her father eavesdrop the elder man keeping his gold. Chur Wun’s father suggests Ao Gum to take away the gold from the elder man. Ao Gum wishes there was a miracle saving the elder man. Chur Wun remembered the fate was written in the manuel. Lei Xuan reads the poem that a person who has many objects but can’t pass through the door, his mind will be confused. The maid sneaks in the kitchen and ate abalones. She found it fresh but missing some flavors. The maid ate half of the pot of abalones. She left. Ao Gum’s maid asked her why she’s in the kitchen. She checked the abalones and confront her of eating her abalones. The maid said when she came here, it was already like that. She didn’t see her eating abalones. Ao Gum’s mother said there’s only her. She told her to compensate for her abalones. The maid told Ao Gum’s mother that her son may have ate those abalones. Does he dare to swear she never gave her son some. Lei Xuan came. Ao Gum’s mother told Lei Xuan that Chur Wun’s maid ate her abalones. Lei Xuan told her to forget it. Ao Gum’s mother said Chur Um’s father will leave in a few days. Chur Um told her that she doesn’t think her father will mind. Chur Um’s maid smiled and looked in the mirror.

Ao Gum blew a scent of abalones toward the maid. The maid steps out of the room and asked Ao Gum why is he being sneaky in front of her. Ao Gum told her to look in front of his eyes. The maid asked him what he can’t do. Lei Xuan said he believes she is innocent. The maid said she is innocent. She didn’t eat the abalones. She closed the door. She sneaks in and ate some extra abalones. Ao Gum’s mother caught her and got freaked out. She ate some peppers. Ao Gum said she got affected by a sleeping powder.

He dug out a few golds. He asked Lei Xuan to eat with him. The elder man said it’s enough gold. The elder man ate with Ao Gum that if he has plenty of gold, he would be scared of losing them or people stealing them. The elder man told Ao Gum he can keep the golds but if he has golds, he rather use it all. Lei Xuan told Chur Wun’s father some people love fame but some loves freedom.

Safety in asian drama spaces!

I created this asian drama blog due to my love of hk dramas and wuxia series. One thing I love being an hk drama fan and wuxia fan is I am surrounded by many likedminded asians. Yeah thank you tvb bloggers for welcoming me. I used to be a normal drama fan who chatted with many asians about wuxia and hk dramas and then created my own blog. But at least some drama bloggers told me they were glad I created this blog because there needs more hk drama blogs and wuxia blogs. Yeah I work really hard to find certain asian dramas and recapping them.

Yeah I made some likedminded asian guys and girl friends through tweeting and blogging about asian dramas. I also had some decent asian men commenting on my blog about wuxia series. I knew some awesome asian americans who blog kdramas also.

I’m a pretty shy girl and feeling safe being friends with mostly asians especially online when there are many creeps out there. I’ve been censoring myself on twitter on who I interact with since there are many creepy men out there who enjoys doxing asian women. I’m a pretty confident and strong girl. Even some asians from asian reddit chat with me about wuxia and asian dramas since we have mutual interest. Recently there are trolls who try to divide asians. Asian community is very divided. I couldn’t care there are different types of asians. I just follow different types of asians to see their views but no way I would let non asians taking over or speaking over asian community. Make it a space space for asians to talk about asian issues.

There are always creeps out there and I should be aware of it. Most of the time I just censor stuff and interact with other asians about asian dramas. I also censor stuff on my drama blog to make it safe.

I feel safest being surrounded by likedminded asians.

In the Realm of Fancy episode 3 recap

Ao Gum asked himself in front of the mirror what’s he’s doing. It is okay he looks ugly but Chur Wun is a princess and matches with Lei Xuan. Now he made her upset, how can he solve this? Chur Wan feels shaky while she’s doing her hair. Lei Xuan feels shaky while he’s writing a calligraphy. They and the maid and Ao Gum’s mother walked outside. They watches Ao Gum breaking the mirror with an axe. Chur Wun told Ao Gum she doesn’t think the mirror can be fixed.

Ao Gum cleaned the mirror the whole night at the beach. Ao Gum stopped an official in the middle of the road. Lei Xuan greets the official. The official asked Lei Xuan why did he let the court be so dusty. Lei Xuan said it is a good thing since there’s no cases so the world is peaceful. The official brought Ao Gum in. Ao Gum interrogated Lei Xuan and asked him there’s many roads to take but why did he blocked other people’s road. Ao Gum said he was about to pack up but he wasn’t aware the official will come this way. Lei Xuan told Ao Gum he should step aside when the official came. He could have step aside, why did he blocked the way. Ao Gum said he could have went the other way but there’s no way to avoid the official. Lei Xuan said Ao Gum went first and can’t tell the official to step aside. Lei Xuan told Ao Gum he just wanted to save people. The official accepts Ao Gum’s statement and finds him innocent.

The official visits Lei Xuan and told him he could have stayed in the palace but decided to stay here. Lei Xuan likes the quiet environment here. The official told Lei Xuan that if this place is peaceful then there wouldn’t be someone who use the goddess name to con others. The official said if anything happens he will put the blame on him. The maid told Chur Wun that her father is here. Chur Wun looked in the mirror. Chur Wun greets her father. Chur Wun asked her father if there’s anything different about her. She has done her hair in different style. She asked him if it looks prettier. She and Lei Xuan has exposed bad guys. Chur Wun said she’s a grown up, everyone is busy so she is taking care of herself. Chur Wun told her father he is always busy in the palace and it’s been four months he haven’t returned home. She is always alone. She is bored so she visited Lei Xuan. Chur Wun and Lei Xuan looked in the mirror. Chur Wun thanked Ao Gum for fixing the mirror. She told him to look in the mirror and they look different now. Lei Xuan told Chun Wur that pretty girls look pretty in the mirror. Pretty girls have nice hearts which is the prettiest in the world. Chur Wun looked in the mirror and smiles.

During the night Ao Gum saw the soldiers wanted to kill the horse. He fought with them and got arrested. Chur Wun’s father asked Ao Gum what does he want him to do and why does he always block him. Ao Gum told Chur Wun’s father that he is willing to take the blame but the horse is innocent. Chur Wun told Ao Gum that if his horse gets scared of small thing, he would be in danger during the war. Lei Xuan said though the horse is useless but it doesn’t deserve to die. Chun Wur’s father said he brought fifty thousand soldiers to war and those useless horses are poultry for them. Ao Gum said there’s no more wars and those horses help him win the war. Lei Xuan told Chur Wun’s father that Ao Gum cares for the horse and he can calm down. Chur Um’s father told them that they sympathize like a girl and he doesn’t want to argue. He orders the soldier to tie up the horses. Ao Gum prayed for god to save the horses. No ones want to die.

Chur Wun brought sweet dessert for her father. Chur Um’s father ate the dessert found it taste delicious and sweet. He asked her if she knows to cook other food, then she can cook for him. Chur Wun said if he has the time to return home. Chur Wun’s father said he is busy with work and she should be understanding. She knows he really loves her. Chur Wun inserted her hand and said since he loves her the most, he promised to buy her a special hairpin. Chur Wun told her father she doesn’t blame him for not remembering it but she isn’t as important as his work. Chur Wun’s father told Chur Wun as long she isn’t mad he can give her what she wants. Chur Wun wants his horses. Chur Wun’s father laughed and said he should have known she came prepared.

Ao Gum releases the horse and thanked Chur Wun. Lei Xuan told Chur Wun she has saved a life with her words. She is like a goddess.

The five officials returned to Lei Xuan’s house. Chur Wun’s father yelled at the officials for not staying in the palace. Chur Wun came and greets the brothers. During dinner, Chur Wun picked up lettuces for her father. The five brothers ate the meals at the restaurant and said they have fresh food. Chur Wun’s father got mad and told Lei Xuan that people with small views are willing to be officials in a small town. Chur Wun’s father said some people don’t know how to work their way up and be an official just to have fun and eat. Chur Wun’s father said he’s been an official for forty years, they have to know how to read to have a future. Chur Wun’s father said when they become officials, they can help the people. Chur Wun’s father told a brother to recite a poem. A poor elder heard the poem. Chur Wun’s father got mad the brother can’t finish the poem. Chur Wun’s father yelled that a person who doesn’t work hard is a useless person just like that poor elder. Chur Wun’s father said he hates lazy people and he doesn’t deserve a coin. The soldiers drove the poor elder man out.

Ao Gum helped the elder man up. Ao Gum gave food to the elder man. Lei Xuan apologized to the elder man. Lei Xuan gave the elder man a new bowl. Lei Xuan told the elder man he seems like a gentleman, why did he come to town. The elder man said he didn’t come to beg for money, he just wanted to listen to the poem. The elder man brought Ao Gum to his temple. He dug out potatoes and gave it to him.

Chur Wun’s father asked the five brothers what they have done. Chur Wun’s father said lazy people won’t have good achievement just like the poor elder man who is useless. Lei Xuan told Chur Wun’s father that everyone have their own path, a person who works hard may not have high achievement. Chur Wun’s father said he’s right, there are some knowledgeable people who just hang out. Lei Xuan said some people think they are always right. Chur Wun said he already helped them, they only need to work hard. Lei Xuan asked about poor people who have heard of the poem. Flashback of the elder man said he was farming and the government force everyone to learn the poem so he learn it. He can recite the poem. He earned tenth place. Chur Wun’s father said if he is educated, he must take the exam. He obviously didn’t work hard. There was a war and he taught the soldiers to go to war. He saw the the people are hungry and doesn’t have clothes and even children doesn’t have clothes. He doesn’t bear to kill them. He sees more harm by going to war. Because he didn’t kill the people, he got punished to a lower rank. He used his money to build a bun restaurant. Then the government wants to open another building so they tore down the business. Chur Wun’s father said teh captain won the war and got promoted. He became a secretary of state. Lei Xuan said the high rank officials get to enjoy their life while the lower rank got their land taken but no one cares for them. Chur Wun’s father said he only knows that if they work hard, they will enjoy their fortune. Lei Xuan said the person who suffer is the elder man.

Chur Wun’s father watches the elder man recites the poem and the food stall owner drove him. He digs up gold on the ground in his temple. He is thrilled he doesn’t have to be a poor man.
