    there is a lot to be said about gong li, but i think as actresses go, she's pretty decent.
    I don't know but somehow I am not impress by the likes of 巩俐,章子怡,范冰冰,etc mainland chinese actresses. No doubt they are professionals, may have gone through stringent training in Beijing Film Academy, collaborated with Hollywood stars, etc. There is something about them that does not appeals to me, maybe it is the lack of facial expressions.

    i just finished watching the "Brillant Legacy" yesterday. Its fantastic, a lot crying opportunities, but ending a bit draggy. I watched it in Korean Language, prefer original voice with English subtitles.

    The plot may not be new but it's the execution and the unique direction of the serial flows that captures me to follow through till end. ONE WORD 'BRILLIANT"

    Thumbs up for Korean TV serial!!!

    Brilliant Legacy is 灿烂的遗产。Using chinese streaming so only know the chinese title. I thot the ending also quite touching? Maybe I got too absorbed with Hyo Joo and got emotional

    Now looking for another touching serial to watch...maybe I'll try Smile, you...now what is the chinese title ? 笑,你? 【edit】你笑了。 *哈哈*

    I prefer Korean 古装 . Hate those long-winded TW drama series, saliva dried up, still so much garbage to talk.

    I am closing this thread. Thanks for those who enjoy watching Korean serial.

    I like to spend time watching Korean serial, go to the movies to watch Hollywood blockbuster, hit the pub to watch EPL. If I have excess time, I may even volunteer to moderate a website. Really, I should get a life....mua ha haa...
