[SERIES REVIEW C-DRAMA 2018] 《烈火如歌》The Flame’s Daughter

The Flame's Daughter | 烈火如歌 | Chinese Drama | Review | Episode ...

My latest obsession and definitely not because it’s Vic Zhou’s return to the small screen ^.^. Who am I kidding! I only watched it for Vic Zhou – but then became pleasantly surprised by the 52 episode long drama that I stuck around for the entire thing.

[SERIES REVIEW C-DRAMA 2018] 《飘香剑雨》The Lost Swordship

Not having watched the previous 1978 version of this drama, nor read the novel, after the first 5 episodes, I had really high hopes. The main male lead, Yi Feng (played by Ren Yanqi), is powerful, humorous and smart. Yet the character began to degrade with the increase in the importance of the female lead, Sun Min’s (played by Wi Youshi) story.

Considering the drama/novel is titled The Lost Swordship, and it is evident the male character is the main, one would think that there would be more emphasis on the development of his sword skills and journeys in the jianghu than the displayed emphasis on her life story and ultimate rise to power through nothing but sheer bloodline.

[SERIES REVIEW C-DRAMA 2018] 《琅琊榜》Colourful Bone

Hello everyone~ I know it’s been a super long time and I really shouldn’t be making any excuses. In light of my college graduation coming around the corner, I am no unemployed and no longer in schooling so time is aplenty. I’ll be getting back to translating soon, but in the meantime, I have a series review/recap/impressions for you all.

Note: A large chunk of this will look familiar if you follow AVirtualVoyage. As I’ve mentioned before, I work with the wonderful team there on their blog sometimes and this is one that I created for them and transplanted here.

This post will also include complete episode recaps when I get around to it, but for now, only the first two pages have content so enjoy~

Just a warning, it will be pretty long and multi-page. Continue reading

LOCH Translation Recruitment

Hi everyone!

I know it’s been suuuuper long since I’ve posted anything and the rate of my translations is atrocious~~~~ for that I’m terribly sorry T_T

I just came on quickly to bring attention to a project that a good friend has decided to start.

Some of you may be aware of A Virtual Voyage, a team which I have just recently joined.

One of the team members, Wuxiarocks, has taken the initiative to begin subbing Legend of Condor Heroes 2017.

As you all know, wuxia dramas these days are not too popular with the influx of xianxia and romance.

So if you could help in anyway, it would be greatly appreciated!!

Please check out the link for more information.



A/N: Extremely sorry for the long delay and many thanks for those that are still supporting my translation efforts. As I’ve said before, this is a project that I’m quite invested in to finish. So regardless of how long it takes – IT WILL BE DONE!!

You may notice a few terminology inconsistencies as I’ve continued to translate this chapter over the last 9 months~ Please let me know if there needs to be any major fixes.
