Drama Review: Easy Fortune Happy Life


Drama : Easy Fortune Happy Life (福氣又安康)
Year : 2009
Cast : Joe Chen, Blue Lan, Roy Xiu, Jocelyn Wang, Gino
Episodes: 17


Oh, the cheesefest! I don't usually pick up Taiwanese dramas but how can I miss another Chen Qiao En drama? Currently on my drama list is Easy Fortune Happy Life (2009) and I'm trying my best to trudge through it all... I miss Ethan Ruan from Fated to Love You (that drama was hilarious!!! Ji Bao Bei!), on the other hand, Blue Lan's so different! Kind of scary-looking and reserved-ish. But when he smiles, it's worth the watch! &hearts Roy Xiu, omg, SO PRETTY. The gangster get-up however is so Mike He ala Devil Beside You. (And Qiao En's next drama is with Roy Xiu! Bwahahahha, I'm soo watching that...)

The oh-so-rare smile...

THE PLOT: Dramawiki tells me that Easy Fortune Happy Life (don't even get me started on that title) begins with Yan Da Feng who is a rich, arrogant, hot tempered, bad boy who refuses to honor his grandfather's wish to marry an ordinary country girl, Xie Fu An, who is studying herbal remedies with her grandmother. To get out of the marriage, he sends a killer (Roy Xiu, who is completely LOL-worthy as a compassionate, food critic/gangster) to get rid of her. And that's basically it, with other plot devices thrown in.

Roy: I peel carrots waaay better than you!

I'm only up to episode 6, and I can see that while it won't reach Joe Chen's previous drama successes, it'll be an entertaining ride all the same. I don't really like the supporting characters much, but Gino as a nerd is HOT. I've only seen him in gangsta outfits before (e.g. Smiling Pasta, Prince Turns to Frog) and this is a marked improvement! I have to seriously switch off my brain when I watch TW dramas or I might just fall into one of their many glaring plot holes and lose my mind. Hahahha... The gags and acting take some getting used to, but once you've gotten used to it, enjoyment kicks in. =)

The BTS cracks me up!

It's airing on 8TV now on weekday nights but it's so far ahead (the good bits are nearly always at the beginning), so I watch it elsewhere... ^^

P/S: I'm taking a break from Smile, You and You're Beautiful because my Streamyx line at home is really slow (if only my dear mother would change the aztech password, I have a feeling we're supplying the neighbours with free Internet...)

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)


I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.


3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
