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?

Our Time Will Come: A Wallace and Zhou Xun Collaboration


This was actually shot before the Ruyi one but I think the other one received more attention. Anyway, this is a movie directed by Ann Hui. It’s a war movie.

Many war movies focused on the male side, but this one will focus on one of the notable heroines of that time, Fang Lan (方蘭), but she is often known as Fang Gu (方姑). This is, of course, Zhou Xun’s character.

Wallace will play her lover, Li Jin Rong (李錦榮). His name sounds really, really familiar. I can’t place it at the moment. Not sure if he was mentioned or appeared in Dong Jiang Heroes yet wasn’t focused on since the other drama focused on Liu Hei Zai and his side mostly.

Which brings me to the other essential character of the drama, Liu Hei Zai. He will be portrayed by Eddie Peng. (Good luck with that since Wang Lei already stole my heart, lol.)

They will be joined by other veteran stars, such as Bau Hei Jing, Ray Lui, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Eddie Cheung, and more. Check out the trailer (uploaded by 双喜電影 A Really Happy Film). It looks quite promising.
