My Teacher Is Xiao He: Ending Its Run

(image source: net)

The drama that has aired for the past year or so is finally coming to an end. Well, at least it’s nearing the end. Chloe posted on her Facebook page that she will miss everyone so much, considering how much time she spent with the cast in here versus other TV dramas. In this article, GINO said that he had hoped for it to pass the 600 mark. Whether he’s joking or not, it doesn’t seem to be happening since they already wrapped. GINO had jokingly posted several months back that he wish to portray a principal the next time he participates in a student drama since he portrayed a student in Smile Pasta and now a teacher in this drama. Anyway, the drama just aired its 321st episode so it should end in the next several weeks, depending how they want to wrap this up.

iHero: More Season 2 Promos

Yes, like the title said they’re doing more promotions for the drama.

This time, Dou Hua Mei is present as well.

Some people were complaining about how there were lack of Xiao Xin and Jing Ling’s individual pictures, which I agreed. Not to mention how the focus of the main leads seemed to be on Jason, Janel, and Kurt only. It was indeed strange yet I still hope they continue to include the rest of the main cast  as well and shift the cases from time to time like Season 1 or it would turn into a disaster with too much focus on this or that character and pushing out others just to create a hype. I liked Season 1 because there was a balance between cases and personal time so I hope they continue on that path. I also liked that no one upstage anyone in the drama as an overall. They all had their parts and created a humorous and witty atmosphere from throughout.

iHero: Season 2 Officially Filming

Yes! Finally some concrete news about this. They officially started filming at long last! I wouldn’t blame them since it’s hard to get everyone back together with how their schedules are. Just that I’m anxious to see them back in action. (Go here and here for news clips.)

Anyway, season 2 is called Righteous War (正義之戰). They’re planning on 45 episodes, but we’ll have to see.

Oh look! Xiao Xin is back! I’m glad she’s not gone for good because I really liked her in the previous season. Everyone added some vibrant energy to the whole drama so can’t imagine the drama without any of them.

And don’t worry! Jing Ling will also be back for the second season. It was just that Dou Hua Mei couldn’t make it to the camera opening ceremony. Janel had clarified that detail in the comments of her post since someone had asked about Jing Ling.

Year 2015 in Recap

year_review

Oh joy, I’m bringing this back since it’s another year of madness. How did it go? Let’s check the number first, lol. Yes, before I start bragging and realized it wasn’t worth bragging over, lol. But before I actually go into the stats, I would like to thank The New World and iHero for making some of the impossibles happen. Because if it wasn’t for the dramas, I wouldn’t have updated so much or kept it so consistent for the better half of the year. Also, anyone wanting to check out the stat report from WordPress, click here.

Total Posts in 2015: 365 (35% of all time). Yes, I took a challenge of trying to keep up posts for 365 days SO had to brag here. It wasn’t easy and some posts were less impressing than others. However, I think it was already tough that I managed it all year long. For this year, will I be continuing on this pattern? I want to but I would say no. Since quality trumps quantity so I’ll still be updating, still be my random self at times, but I won’t force it as an everyday thing. If it happens, it happens. Now, moving on to the breakdown of different categories.

Times Updated on People on the Poll
: 284 (78% of overall). I took out Ady and Hu Ge early on so I didn’t feel like I needed to include them in this section. Anyway, because I did the 365-day challenge, everyone benefited–one way or another. However, Achel had a surge, leaving Jun Ya behind with only 22 posts, because Wallace, Joanne, Bianca, and Jacky ended up having more posts than him for the year. That knocked him off top 5 for the year yet didn’t damage his overall record too much. Talking about that, he was the reason why I held off so long of not publishing this post since I needed to calculate some of the posts again. Yet I decided to gamble and take out some and possibly double back next year to correct it all. Oh yeah, I didn’t count general updates for some people, especially those with higher numbers already.
Wallace Huo: 26 (9% of the year)
Janine Chang: 16 (6%)
Vic Chou: 12 (4%)
Joanne Zeng: 25 (9%)
Nicholas Teo: 18 (6%)
Xiu Jie Kai: 12 (4%)
Angela Chang: 12 (4%)
Zhao Jun Ya: 22 (8%)
Yvonne Yao: 7 (2%)
Penny Lin: 16 (6%)
Achel Chang/ Zhang Xin Yu: 34 (12%)
Sophia Chou: 6 (2%)
Ruby Lin: 16 (6%)
Van Fan: 9 (3%)
Eric Suen: 5 (2%)
Bianca Bai: 25 (9%)
Jacky Chu: 23 (8%)

Books Reviews:

Music Reviews:

Movies + TV Series Reviews/Episode Summaries: I will say that I was both proud and also a bit ashamed, because I was cheating for several dramas by inserting placeholders. I was trying to motivate myself to watch faster and/or fill the spaces yet things got in the way and I fell behind once again.

Fan Fiction:

Songs Translations: I think that it was too obvious that it was a Phil Chang year for me. Yes, I love that guy. Okay, mostly his songs, lol. But he is funny. Getting back to this, totally outdone myself on some levels. Overall, I translated 51 songs. OMG, that’s like major achievement for me in this area. The previous year, I only did 12, but that was because I didn’t really take it as a challenge. I think this number will drop the upcoming year since I won’t be forcing myself to update every day.

Chinese: 46

Vietnamese: 5

Side Updates: 130 posts – My randomness seriously has gone way past normal. I didn’t count some of the side stuffs. But The New World and iHero obviously dominated the scene for the beginning of the year.

For this year, I hope to bring out more quality posts, like I said earlier. I also hope to finish up the placeholder posts that I haven’t previously. Wish me luck and see you all next year!

Golden Bell Awards 2015: Winners

Yes, I had to quit Facebook to watch faster, lol. I was slower last year with putting it up because I got discouraged with watching after being spoiled, lol. Anyway, congrats to all the winners!
