This show went completely under the radar.

I really like this story. A Butterfly Lovers reboot or spinoff is not easy to make.  Not every one of the reboot or spinoff has as much impact as Denise Ho’s Butterfly Lovers’ Reincarnation.

I decided to make this WordPress because sometimes I’m way too chatty on Twitter. I have many interests, including but not limited to watching TV, exploring new computer technologies, reading, and yoga. So it is really hard to have this blog to dedicate to one specific topic.  I’ll try to be as organized as I can with categories, so if anyone wants to read about dramas to filter out posts about dramas.
