Anticipated Autumn C-drama: Most Beautiful Time Starring Janine Chang (Air date released!)
(Note: Also known as “Best Time” or “Secrets Hidden By Time”)
It seems like fall is the season for lots of c-drama news particularly about c-dramas that we’ve known about forever but never got an official air date for. *cough* Da Mo Yao *cough* Well similar to the upcoming c-drama Da Mo Yao we’ve also heard about Best Time forever. According to the latest short teasers that have been released, the drama will start airing on November 20th, 2013.
If you’re late, Best Time is based off of a novel written by the popular author Tong Hua, who also wrote Bu Bu Jing Xin. Best Time is set in modern times and stars Janine Chang as the heroine, Wallace Chung & Jia Nai Lang. Basic synopsis, well it’s about a woman who chases her prince charming to his workplace and gets a job there. Apparently she does this on false pretenses with a fake resume. Guess who knows her SECRET, her boss and voila, LOVE TRIANGLE!
I think most people are anticipating this drama because Janine really shot up to stardom after Sunny Happiness. Also it seems like modern office c-dramas are becoming more popular. (i.e. SOP Queen) Really I am not that into the synopsis, even though the novel is by Tong Hua the story doesn’t really sound like the thing for me. On the other hand though, I do like Janine Chang and LOOK AT ALL OF THE PRETTY STILLS. I am totally being shallow here, these pretty stills are just LURING ME OVER and making me curious. 😛 I am wary because……
-The dubbing really gets on my nerves in the trailers. Why couldn’t they have chosen more natural sounding voices, bleh.
-Possibility of it turning out to be another SOP Queen–just glossy and full of eye candy.
-It’s yet another c-drama about the rich boss guy and the woman who’s working her way up in the company.
But I think I will be checking out Best Time to see how it is, who knows maybe it’ll end up being good or at least watchable. I am curious to see how Janine’s acting has improved and also what the love triangle will be like!
You might’ve been a bit confused as I titled this post “Most Beautiful Time” but mainly referred to the drama as “Best Time”. Actually the official English title is “Best Time,” but it just does not sound that great to me. There are a couple other alternate English titles; I think “Most Beautiful Time” sounds waaay better. The other title is “Secrets Hidden In/By Time,” don’t know how accurate this is but I heard from someone that they scrapped that title because the acronym spells out a..foul word….. 😛
