Hi guys, I’m a bit busy in real life and need to take care of real life and work though I have enough time to relax and take my time to take care of things I need to take care of. About this drama blog, I’ve been blogging for more than 5 years and a half and will turn six in a few upcoming months. I love my asian dramas too much especially old dramas that I do recaps for them. I like blogging in my personal space. Throughout the drama blogging world journey I’ve chatted and met man awesome likedminded asians but also some white guys and girls who are interested in asian culture and blogs about asian dramas and wuxia. Yeah some of the whites tell me “Though I love wuxia series but I understand I am not as knowledgeable in asian culture and dramas as you or other asians who grew up with them”. A Virtual Voyage and NancyDramaland are two awesome asian girls who blogs about cdramas who I chat with. Zoekpoptv, DapowerZ, and YamHelen are asian girls who found me through DramaFever. Wuxia Rocks is an asian guy who is a big fan of wuxia. Deathblade from Wuxia World and Brendan from Bedrock Games are two white guys who are married to an asian females who loves wuxia series. I’m also good at connecting my asian friends to other asian friends. Some found me and then found my other asian friends due to me tweeting and tagging them altogether. They are all awesome.
I have a mixed feeling sometimes. Some asian drama bloggers agreed with aznidentity reddit and gave me some of their perspectives but some don’t and sided with asian feminists. Here are some of the quotes from asian drama bloggers who are asians who don’t have a reddit account but gave me their opinions on it. You can see how asians outside of reddit views.
One of the insightful quotes that a korean american guy who is a kdrama blogger and asian movie reviewer gave me.
Everyone looks after their own interests, don’t read too much into it. I’m especially suspicious of anyone that uses the word “incel”, because it’s rooted in sexism.The problem with some Asian guys is that they are actually practicing a mix of sexism and ethnocentrism disguised as anti-racism. They’ve been put down by the world, but bought into patriarchal power structures and basically would rather that Asian men come out on top of the male-dominated power structure.

I am asian. I dont hate. I just wonder if there will be pure chinese left. Doesn’t make me a racist. Same way i view gay couple.
It is racism but like black people they think Racisms is against them and not from them. Utter rubbish. And just because I don’t date black guys doesn’t mean I am a racist or if I think some Asians as shady means I am racist. Prejudiced maybe, not racist. But article like this is racist.
I dont believe in compartmentalising people. Same like criticism for.mo Farah for marrying a white woman. Love is love. So does this argument apply to gay couples? Gay chinese dude can only date gay chinese dude?

I do not condone hateful language. Some issues should be pointed out, however. One thing I’ve learned that’s very true, as they frequently say in the US, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Our Asian tradition, especially Chinese, is to be modest and humble. Therefore, we are generally the quiet workers or students who work diligently without complaint, and try to excel despite adversity. Being an Asian American really requires more thoughts and careful action to balance what we want and how to achieve our goals. What I mean is, continue to nurture your self confidence and develop the ability to express your opinions on social issues. I write about Asian entertainment, so generally I don’t talk about politics and social issues in this area.
The second one you linked is troublesome. It reminds me of the rhetoric employed by the Virginia Tech killer (Korean American). Don’t mean to say this particular individual will go that direction. I’m not a psychologist or psychiatrist. Maybe he’s a teenager. Maybe he is a recluse. I wish I knew what the solution is.
I watched asian dramas since I was eight, I am very dedicated to it. But lately I am busy and just blog from time to time or once a few days. Many drama bloggers have left. I kinda doubt if I will leave this asian drama blogging world since I love them so much. I’m one of those dedicated drama fan and bloggers.
Here are some of the wuxia series that I grew up and have special memories in my mind.
Justice Bao 1993
Demi God and Semi Devils 96
Food Glorious Food
Bodyguard Jade Doll
War and Remembrance
Xiao Shiyilang 2003

I find myself falling in two groups. I get along with white preppy and funny guys but I also get along with awesome asians who cares for me. My parents did tell me I’m influenced by both american and asian side. Yeah my friends think i’m funny and cool. My parents liked me after getting know me and hang out with me. I can’t really stand Fobs due to different mindset so do my asian american cousins.
Self esteem is huge. I always compare myself to other people and feel upset. Even my family and asian friends tell me to stop care about what other people think about me then i’ll be happy.
My family do think i’m pretty. I remember eating at a chinese restaurant, my mom and sister looked at me for a long time and said I am so pretty. My dad said I am the prettiest out of his children but just need to dress up more to look more classy. That one time when my sister looked at a pic of my pretty cousin who is a flight attendant, my sister asked me if I think I can do it since I’m pretty. I remember hanging out with my mom, and she told me privately in the car that she really thinks I am pretty, it’s not only my dad and sister’s opinion, it is truly her opinion but I need to dress up more.
But even though my family thinks I’m pretty I always have some self esteem about working hard and getting better at what I do. My asian family always compare me to other asians and it made me feel upset. I remember my uncle told my family that my cousin (his daughter) told him that I am not dumb and am really intelligent and street smart and lead her during the vacation in Canada. My grandma said she doesn’t sees me as dumb, I helped many grandmas at the airport translating documents from viet to english. My sister did say to not worry about me I am really good at making friends and interacting with other people. My dad did say I am the best at making friends but I am kinda shy toward some people I’m scared. I have this shy personality, I can be outgoing and talk to people I like but then I tend to shy away toward some people.
Yeah one of my high school friends is the prettiest blonde hair girl in high school but I don’t talk a lot. But she always support me. I don’t feel inferior cause I’ve never compared myself to other whites. She thinks i’m cool so it’s fair. I don’t need to feel inferior nor compare.
Yeah those times I chat with many asians from California and wished I was in California due to the high population of asians.
So I fall into two categories, I hang out with white preppy friends but I also hang out with awesome asians as an asian american girl.
So why i’m upset due to always being compared to other asians. Yeah I shouldn’t cause everyone is unique.
Rant over. Hope this make me feel better after I finish this rant.
This is my personal ran but I do wonder why I feel upset and compare myself to other asian girls when there’s no need.
I’m not sure how you asians feel about our asian american identity.
Yes I used to check previous tvb blogs: TVB Musing, K4TVB, TVB Square, TVB Index, and SPCNET. There used to be so many asian drama bloggers 10 years ago. As a tvb addict who have chatted with numerous tvb fans, and having been told being a “tvb guru” or “You are the right person to talk about this”, I’ve never thought of being a drama blogger but I love blogging and choosing layouts. I always wanted to be a drama recapper due to my love of stories especially adventure stories. Reviews are fine, I like expressing my opinions but I love blogging about daily adventure so I prefer to do drama recaps and keeping memories.
But I’m a private person, I don’t like sharing my thoughts too much especially when it will offend someone. Yeah many fans have told me I’m knowledgeable about tvb series and even more than them. I watch a lot of tvb series but I’m one of those who don’t like expressing opinions in public places which is why I’ve never been a fan of forums. I prefer one on one chat where I know the person.
But the more I do wuxia and tvb recaps, I would like to review or recaps some good wuxia series that my favourite wuxia and tvb bloggers haven’t covered. I used to chat with SPCNET about wuxia series and we do watches different wuxia series. There are some wuxia series I would like to cover. There are too many asian dramas to be watched right?
With Wuxia Edge gone, there still A Virtual Voyage who covers wuxia series. 🙂
I’m planning to cover more wuxia series and asian dramas that I would like to.
