Torrent download video subtitled in English

My thoughts on the story:
This started kind of boring in the first part because it was reviewing the 1st season, but when the game starts, it gets you to think how the game would work and how you can trick people into giving you money. If you like more of an intelligent drama, this is not a bad choice. The game starts with 24 Rensou Russian Roulette. To pull the trigger or not to pull the trigger? Kanzaki Nao think that they might be tricked by the game team even though they seemed to be winning this round. Kanzaki seems kinda slow at times, but maybe she sees things other people don't see. I haven't watched season1 so I don't know what she did to help in the last season. I'm excited about the next episode.

Otomen is really dreamy

* Courtesy of Drama Wiki*

It's another Japanese school drama, turned from the comic books. I just love the Japanese anime, the actors are very attractive and easy on the eyes. I wish there are more episodes, but oh well. I've linked the episodes for streaming. It has Chinese subtitle and original voice.

A little bit of my thought:
I don't know what's the big deal for a man to like cooking, baking, sewing and still be good at the man stuff like being a great swordsman. This drama does have a lot of funny moments.

Black and White - Taiwanese Drama - 痞子英雄 - Pi Zi Ying Xiong

(picture: courtesy of Ethidda)

Nice new drama from Taiwan. This is similar to CSI, but I would it's a lot more fun. The opening and ending songs are really good. Definitely worth checking it out.

Main Characters:
Vic Zhou as Chen Zai Tian 陳在天 / Pi Zi 痞子
Mark Chao as Wu Ying Xiong 吳英雄
Janine Chang as Lan Xi Ying 藍西英
Ivy Chen as Chen Lin 陳琳

Drama starts with a cop thinking he's on the good side and he's totally "pure" and just in whatever he was doing. Later on he found out he's capable of evil as well. On the other hand, the partner cop always trying to get through life the easy way and have fun and is always sitting on the fence. But he might turn out to be the good guy in the end. The main actors really fit the role they play. Click on the link below to download the drama and English subs.

Lou Wong Tong Shuai Hwai

This is a Taiwanese drama that I really enjoy watching recently. Got tired from watching Korean dramas that just gets me mad because the story doesn't make sense at all. Sometimes i just want to punch the story maker.
Mr. Wong is a broadcasting person on a radio station. He's the only one that can see the ghost of his dead childhood friend who died in US. I like this drama because the story is what can happen or what has already happened in real life, but the whole drama is charismatic and fun, doesn't drag on with one particular scene. In this story, there are 4 friends and they all have different personalities and therefore lots of life stories can be portrait from them. It's bound to please one spectrum of the human generations.

Episode 24
