boundlessaffection asked: I am sorry can I ask if you know of any website to stream hk drama and have fast upload, previously I was watching on tvbdo but it has been down suddenly, any recommendations?

hkctvdramas:

tv.youku.com has a listing of all the recent hkdramas and some older ones. You can stream it and watch it legally by having a youku plugin addon. Just be sure you don’t run adblocks on the page of the video because the player refused to run until you disable your adblocks.

The video has an option for mandarin and canto and upload right after the episode airs I believe.

Anonymous asked: lol you're so funny! i love your response to the crime drama recommendation and i love how you even posted recommendations from wayy back when! i grew up watching tvb but recently i've stopped watching..would you recommend any recent dramas?! and by recent i mean maybe last 2, 3 years or this year :) thank you!

LOL! Thank you and you’re welcome :)

The ones you listed in your previous ask were pretty recent, so that’s why I included some of the older (and much better tbh) dramas in my list.

I don’t think I can help you much tbh because I don’t watch TVB as much as I used to.

But anyways, the most memorable one (for me) that was released in the last 2-4 years was Every Move You Make, and that was in 2010. Forensic Heroes III (2011) is pretty good too, I guess, but FH3 is inferior to FH1. It’s better than FH2 though.

Sergeant Tabloid (2013) is really cute, but it’s not a typical crime drama. It’s more like Armed Reaction - about women in the force.

Best legal crime drama I’ve watched in recent years is The Other Truth (2011). It’s the drama that inspired my bromance tag LOLLLL and it’s drama that shot Ruco Chan to instant fame (well deserved too)

But tbh, TVB didn’t produce much crime dramas in the last few years.

Anonymous asked: i know this is not related to tvb lol but i'm curious... do you like k-pop? and what kind of chinese (canto + mandarin) pop singers do you listen to?

Oh I can go on and on and complain about the ridiculousness and drama that is K-pop LOL. If you wanna chat, hit me up at my main blog.

I do like K-pop, but my knowledge of the genre pretty much only limits to the groups and events related to TVXQ/Tohoshinki and Super Junior. I’ve been a fan of both groups for many years (almost as long as they’ve been around actually). If I had the money and the time I would have already shipped myself off to Japan to watch Tohoshinki’s 2014 concert tour LOL. I also stanned EXO for like… a week lmao

Regrettably, I do not listen to much Cantopop nowadays unless they’re produced by TVB (because I’m exposed to those more). I still listen to a lot of 80s and 90s Cantopop though (because, duh, the golden era). When I was younger (early high school) I used to like Twins and Boy’Z a lot, but that obsession didn’t last very long, haha. I’m pretty sure everyone around my age had a time when they really liked Twins & Boy’Z.

I haven’t been listening to much Mandopop recently, but I am a fan of Leehom Wang. I also like Jay Chou, S.H.E and JJ Lin. There was a period of time when I listened to a lot of Jolin Tsai and Fahrenheit.

OK so I kinda ranted.

To the anon who sent me an ask about crime drama recommendations…

… I accidentally deleted your ask LOL. Sorry about that D: I had a pretty long-ass reply too and now I have to retype everything ughhhh I’m in a pissy mood.

ANYWAYS, when it comes to HK dramas, the crime genre is usually the one I go for! (as well as historical fiction dramas because ngl I like my political-savvy men with their pretty, thick, and well-trimmed eyebrows lol) When it comes to crime dramas, I appreciate the ones that are more case-driven than character-driven. Highs and Lows, for example, is a character-driven crime drama that I absolutely hated. Too much romance with poorly-written characters. (ugh that drama had so much potential. disappointed)

OK, this is going to be a pretty long post.

Their little scene was literally only like 2 minutes and neither one spoke directly to each other at all yet I already ship them. All thanks to Ruco’s phenomenal acting skills.

But really, just look at his heartbroken face; mah feels </3.
