dreamcatchers

this drama starts on 4th Feb 09, at 9pm on Channel 8.

this drama stars:
Jesseca Liu as Lin Jiale, Rui-en as Lin Jiaqi, Tay Ping Hui as Wang Zhi Wei, Shaun Chen as Jiang Cheng Feng, Elvin Ng as Sato, Dawn Yeoh as Wang Pei Pei, Nat Ho as Lin Jiajie, Zhang Zhenghuan as Hu Yuanjing, Richard Low as Lin Guodong, Paige Chua as Zhang Xiaowei, Lin Meijiao as Cai Aili, Wang Huaqing as Situ Yan, Eelyn Kok as Li Shanshan

OFFICIAL MEDIACORP CH8 SYNOPSIS

this is an idol drama about engineering! haha :) it reminds me a lot of 2007’s “The Peak”, ‘cos they’re both sponsored by erm… big companies to promote something.

in the midst of all the engineering jargon, love troubles surface…

Rui-en will receive the affections of Shaun Chen and Elvin Ng – and they even get to film in snowy Japan! the scenery is so beautiful!
and some complicating problems arise with the arrival of Eelyn Kok’s character as Shaun Chen’s ex-fiancee, who is quite a horrible person – evil role for Eelyn Kok again!

and Jesseca Liu will end up with TPH in the end, but Jesseca is liked by expat engineer played by Zhang Zhenghuan (in his debut acting role), while TPH is liked by resident slacker played by Wang Huaqing.

they ALL have to encounter multiple problems at work and in their love lives, and family lives.

i guess that sums the whole show up. sorta.

SORRY PEOPLE, I’M NOT WATCHING THIS DRAMA.

    why u nt watching? I am rhythm of life

    Likewise , I am also not watching this Drama serial too ..Cos I find it quite boring … Although the idea of doing a Drama on engineering was good , much of the story was focused on engineering aspect . Instead , it is a Love – Romance Drama moulded in an engineering Serial .

    So much so that the people behind the Serial had to resort to not one , not two but three stripping Scenes in total in an attempt to attract more people to watch this Serial & boost the TV Ratings !

    As such , I felt the stripping scenes were delibrately added for that ‘ purpose ‘ ….

    This reminds me of 2007 Honour & Passion ‘ – 宝家为国 where it is also similarily a Government body sponored show – by Mindef , of course …

    But likewise , much of the time was focused on the Love & Romance Story between Tay Ping Hui & Felicia Chin … instead of the army lifestyle & the lives of the soldiers in Camps …

    As such , I felt the Drama turned out to be quite boring in the end …

    So , I think u make the RIGHT CHOICE of not wanting to watch this Drama ! And u will not really miss much , trust me !

    We have seen enough ‘examples ‘ of such sponsored shows already to know what to expect & what’s the outcome – in ‘ The Peak ‘ & Honour & Passion ‘ , haven’t we ?

  3. John

    So , I think the only two Drama Serials really worth watching & really worth anticipating to look forward to are : Table of Glory – 乒乓圆 ( Debut 1 April ) & This Year MEGA BLOCKBUSTER ‘ 双子星’ – The ULTIMATUM ( Debut 27 May 2009 ) . Both at 9pm on Channel 8 !

    Erm, anyone got the lyrics got the theme song of this show?

  9. John

    Haha … I am Mysteryblogger , all right ! Er … So Sorry that I make u disappointed with me not updating my Blog for so long ! Actually , I got quite a few news on hand , some already a bit overdue , some still fresh … Will try to get it updated ASAP !

    Same like u … I am still single no girlfriends yet . So I ended up spending Valentine Day alone at home every year it had been like that on V – Day … Haha ( not actually all alone ) – with my family members !

    Anyway , just to let u know actually Channel 8 has already started their Promo for Table of Glory- 乒乓圆 although it’s still 2 months away from it’s TV Premiere on 1 April !

    I saw their trailer three times today between 11am to 4.30pm during the time I spend watching Dramas Serials this afternoon on Channel 8 . It is a short trailer about Joshua Ang & Dai Yang Tian .

    Also Channel U also started their Promo for Perfect Cut 2 today as well . Saw their trailer once at those timeslots today when the commerical appeared on Channel 8 .

    Evening Chinese Newspaper Lianhe Wanbao also had news of Perfect Cut 2 in their Entertainment Section Page today .

  10. [Emu x33]: sorry, i don’t.

    [John]: nah, not disappointed, ‘cos i also don’t update frequently. haha :) ok, sure!

    whoa, girlfriends? you mean girlfriend right. haha

    OHH. i haven’t seen it yet. but i’ve seen the Perfect Cut 2 trailers! oh i don’t read the Chinese newspapers. yea.

    thanks for the info :)

    qingling~

  11. John

    Be sure to catch the Table of Glory Trailer – Hope u get to see them cos though it’s a short one , It is quite well done & the Promo really starts to build up the atmosphere like a Blockbuster Serial do – though it is NOT a Blockbuster in reality & though it is a short trailer , it makes one really anticipating for the show to start quickly !

    Really looking forward to it !

    Girlfriends … cos I haven’t really had a girlfriend or dated / gone in a relationship all these years … be it from Secondary School days till now … Not like the rest …

  12. [John]: ok, i hope i’ll be able to catch it!
    yea, i’m excited to see Joshua Ang and Teresa Tseng!

    right. ok. sorry, thought it was a typo. the rest?

    qingling~

  13. John

    Don’t need to say sorry la … I mean like the rest or the other males out there who already have dating experience or start to have a girlfriend already maybe even as early as in their Secondary School days …

    How about u ? Mind me asking ?

  14. [John]: oh i see…
    我没谈过恋爱. haha :) but i’m not very old lah, only coming to 18.

    qingling~

  15. John

    I did not say that u are old … Don’t be offended … As for me , I will be 24 this year come June … Anyway , hope that u will be able to find The One in your life very soon …

    Good Luck & ALL The Best !

  16. [John]: huh, no lah, i didn’t take it that way!
    thanks, you too :)

    gt the lyrics but in tA1 第一次的過失 才發現 心中有把真理的尺
    勇氣它原來這裡開始

    A2 每一次的得失 決定著 我明天是什麼樣子
    塞滿理想的城市 淚水變成了奢侈
    微笑是對自己的懂事

    B1 我願意 拭目以待
    去等待 每份色彩
    拭目以待 我打造什麼未來
    時間是個郵差 按時遞送題材
    我的夢我主宰 你最明白

    A3 每一次的錯失 會發現 緊握空拳頭的手指
    緊握的是跳躍 的堅持

    A4 偶而會有迷失 決定著 人的幸福最後地址
    成長沒有方程式 跟隨真心的聖旨
    你是我 最值得的固執

    B1 我願意 拭目以待
    去等待 每份色彩
    拭目以待 我打造什麼未來
    時間是個郵差 按時遞送題材
    我的夢我主宰 你最明白

    B2 拭目以待
    去期待 每份精彩
    拭目以待 那是怎樣的未來
    我用雙手撐開 天空 每片的陰霾
    我的夢我主宰 風雨不改

By the way, I had already seen the this year star award nomination list…I went in to Mr.Paul’s blog to see the star award nomination…I think this year star award , little nyonya will be the winner… I was so surprised how come little nyonya have 16 nomination… that is really too much… By the way, good luck especially the best actor nomination list is not strong enough… I am still waiting for mr.paul to realease the top 20…
