Thanks for having fun with my episode 1 notes on Extraordinary Lawyer Woo! At the moment, I believed I’d share my episode 1 & 2 notes on Shining For One Factor [China], as a result of I’m having fun with it properly, and I used to be questioning when you’d like to affix me? 🤗
These are my episode 1 notes, precisely as they seem on Patreon, ie, with out screenshots (I’m saving these for the precise evaluation).
I hope you all get pleasure from, and I hope you’ll contemplate becoming a member of us over on Patreon, for the remainder of the discussions! ❤️
E1-2. I like this. I like this so much, thus far.
I’ve a giant delicate spot for do-over tales, and a superb chunk of the explanation for that, is as a result of I do typically surprise how my life would have turned out, if I’d made completely different selections.
Do-over tales are the proper vicarious outlet for that, and that’s why I used to be so drawn to this present once I first watched the trailer.
I simply liked the concept our feminine lead Beixing (Karlina Zhang, who performed Ru Lan in The Story of Minglan!) will get an opportunity for a do-over, and through that do-over, refuses to present her douche ex-boyfriend Zhan Yu (from the current) the time of day.
Pwahaha. Simply the thought of that alone, made me need to watch this present. (Hm. Maybe I’ve lingering points, with douchey exes..? 😝)
Which implies that I used to be actually fairly shocked by the execution of those first two episodes.
I’d assumed that Beixing would return to the previous as her 18-year-old self, and that will be the start of her do-over journey.
I’d had no concept that Beixing must work out the best way to really keep previously, with out getting tossed again to the current, over and over.
This was surprising, and made me really feel like this story’s obtained a quite recent strategy.
Though, I’m admittedly hoping that Beixing solves the thriller quickly, of why she retains getting tossed again to the current, in order that we are able to transfer on from this Groundhog Day-esque vibe, to spend extra time on Beixing really experiencing her do-over.
I’m considerably intrigued by the point journey idea that Present introduces, although. The concept Beixing could be visiting a parallel universe every time she wakes up in 2010, is quite thought-provoking.
It makes me surprise what occurs in every parallel universe that she leaves behind, as soon as she wakes up.
I additionally discover it fascinating, that every time she winds up in 2010, she arrives a little bit earlier in time.
Much more fascinating, is the truth that the occasions aren’t fairly the identical, every time. This means that every parallel universe isn’t fairly equivalent, and subsequently has the potential to have a really completely different consequence of its personal in comparison with different parallel universes?
It’s an intriguing thought, and I do ponder whether Present plans to delve any deeper into the mechanics of all of it.
Within the meantime, although, I actually just like the glimpses that we get thus far, of Beixing’s do-over.
For one factor, I really like how she’s completely satisfied that she would love nothing to do with douchebag ex Zhan Yu.
I used to be quite shocked to be taught that he hadn’t been occupied with her in highschool, and she or he’d been the one chasing after him, sporting her coronary heart on her sleeve.
Dang. So she’d succeeded in getting him to just accept her emotions, they usually’d dated, after which he’d dumped her proper earlier than the marriage?
I can see why she desires nothing extra to do with him. And, I actually like that she then units her sights on doing higher in her research, in order that she’ll be capable of carve a distinct path for herself.
So sensible, and likewise, so self-focused!
For somebody who apparently spent approach an excessive amount of time caring a few boyfriend who doesn’t even actually like her, recalibrating her strategy to deal with herself as a substitute, looks as if a superb alternative, from the place I’m sitting.
I discover it fairly hilarious, that nobody in her previous appears to imagine that she’s determined that she doesn’t like Zhan Yu anymore. Her bestie Tengteng doesn’t imagine it, and neither does Zhan Yu, regardless that Beixing repeats herself a number of occasions.
I assume that’s simply how obsessive her affections for him had been?
With the best way Tengteng retains saying constructive issues about Zhan Yu, it does make me surprise if Tengteng herself might need a little bit of a crush on Zhan Yu, however simply isn’t saying something about it, out of consideration for Beixing?
In spite of everything, Zhan Yu seems to be common in class, for all of his self-absorbed methods.
If drama custom holds true, I predict that Zhan Yu’s going to react to Beixing’s sudden lack of curiosity, by out of the blue being very occupied with her.
The fun is within the chase and all that, proper?
Fortunately, I don’t assume Beixing’s going to fall for that, since she’s been totally damage by him, after really relationship him.
On the similar time, I’m positively drawn to quiet shy boy Wansen, who positively appears extra conscious of Beixing than she realizes.
He doesn’t say a lot, however the best way he appears when he’s round her, and the best way he provides her his umbrella in order that she received’t get moist, positively signifies that he cares about her greater than he cares in regards to the common classmate.
Which makes me assume that it’s fairly possible that he’s squeeing internally, every time Beixing goes as much as him and begins chatting with him. Aw. The thought of that’s candy.
Additionally, how very tragic, that every of Beixing’s timeslips ends along with her studying that he’d jumped off the lighthouse tower.
That positively makes my coronary heart exit to him. Beneath his quiet floor, and past scoring prime marks in class, he will need to have a whole lot of inner demons that he’s been battling, for him to finish up doing such a factor.
Why would he commit suicide proper after the school entrance examination? Was it as a result of he didn’t assume he’d performed effectively? That’s the very first thing that involves thoughts, proper now.
I’m already feeling quite protecting of Wansen, so I actually hope that Beixing manages to avoid wasting him quickly, and I hope that would be the key to Beixing managing to remain in 2010, as a substitute of waking up in 2021.
All that to say, I actually like what Present’s obtained happening thus far, and I’m wanting ahead to extra, and shortly!
