Year 2017 in Recap

year_review
When I thought that 2016 was a terrible year for me, I was wrong. 2017 continued to tank to a new level of crappiness. There were many frustrating things–one after another. It was like when I asked, “How much worse could 2017 be?”, it was like a challenge to the universe. So stuff happening in real life obviously affected how much time I have for this blog or attempted to keep some sort of activity. I did better than last year regarding updates, but that was a lot of effort, because I’m still way behind on some news that I wanted to talk about. Yet no time or more like didn’t feel like it at the moment. I continued to get drained to another level that I thought might not be possible–like several days before. Then the pattern just repeat itself at different intervals. I think somewhere along the way, I ended up revamping my blog by getting rid of the too random posts. Like those general update ones. Although my blog already is random on many levels, but I didn’t want to just post for the sake of placeholders too much. Anyway, here are some stats for this year.

Total Posts in 2017: 155 (11.7% of all time).
January: 18 (% of the year)
February: 10 (%)
March: 21 (%)
April: 20 (%)
May: 11 (%)
June: 18 (%)
July: 6 (%)
August: 4 (%)
September: 20 (%)
October: 14 (%)
November: 9 (%)
December: 4 (%)

Books Reviews: Sad, because I actually read a bit this year but didn’t feel like doing reviews for some of them. Maybe I’ll go back to do them later.

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries:

Fan Fiction: Complete failure–unlike what I promised last year about getting  things done. I started looking over some of the fan fics again and managed to get going on some, but I can’t promise on how fast it would be rolled out. I’ll get it out when I’m happy with what I wrote.

Songs Translations: I used “You’re Always Beautiful” to start the year, thinking that if I continue to retain some sense of positiveness, somehow things will get better. But it didn’t. Anyway, how was this year regarding translations? I didn’t realize I was that productive. Mostly, I tried to push the majority of 183 Club’s songs out.

Chinese:

Vietnamese:

I didn’t want to do this update like I said last year. However, I felt like I needed to persuade myself to continue on. Not to mention, I want to keep some sort of teeny, tiny bit of hope that 2018 will actually be better. So we’ll see, right?

Wu Mei Niang: The Wrap-Up

Yes, the production wrapped up recently. (Click here for article.)

Eric actually posted some pictures of the celebration on his Facebook. He, of course, thanked the cast and crew for their hard work throughout. Most of the cast and crew that posted had nothing but praises for Eric as a first time producer. So now we wait since it’s going to take awhile for post-production work. (Obviously, I know, but just excited to see what it would be like.)

Wu Mei Niang: Amanda Chou

There was an article on Amanda after her participation in the drama (not that she hadn’t already established herself through her past works). But I found it an interesting read, so click here to check it out for yourself.

Eric Huang’s Wu Mei Niang

If you haven’t noticed, Eric Huang finally get to fulfill his dream of being a producer. It’s actually a web series, called Wu Mei Niang (舞魅娘), which will be focused on the stories of some ancient beauties and/or heroine. (Click here for full article.)

Amanda Chou (周曉涵) will be portraying Xi Shi (西施).

Mandy Tao (陶嫚曼) will be Hua Mu Lan (花木蘭).

Viola Fang (方妍心) will be Yang Gui Fei (楊貴妃).

And last but not least, Tang Rui Hong (唐瑞宏) will be Da Ji (妲己).

Aside from that, I have no idea who the male cast will be. I meant there were pictures of them in the blessing ceremony, but not sure who will play whom. I’m not even sure if Eric will somehow be part of the cast as well or just be producer. Aside from some random pictures here and there from the cast, there are no other official information after the news of the production starting.
