Reviews movie Behind Your Smile Taiwanese Drama Eng sub
1 - FINALLY AN INTERESTING TAIWANESE DRAMA, sorry so excited, unfortunately gotta wait for more episodes then i'll start watching ):
2 - The only ones I was able to get into this year was Better Man and V-focus. I hope this one doesn't disappoint.
3 - the biggest issue i have with Taiwanese dramas is the constant background music and echo of their voices in certain scenes...it really grinds me... How was Better Man? I'm watching V-Focus too and am enjoying it mostly.
4 - Are you talking about how they always play background music? I’ve also noticed the echoes.
The thing I find really annoying is how they use the intro song as their background song. I never like the intro songs to begin with so to hear it over and over and over again in the background makes me want to shoot myself. It’s always the same song too. Kill me now.
Better Man was good (60 ep.). It centres around three brothers-older, middle and younger. Each of the bros has a leading lady. I enjoyed the middle and younger brothers relationship. The older brother’s leading lady was cute at first then got on my nerves from ep. 25-59. She acted immature, dressed and talked childish, and her relationship with the older brother felt more like they were siblings than gf/bf. However, what kept me coming back was the middle and younger brothers relationships and their granny. I would say give it a shot. You never know you may like it. I know I did.
