I think you should watch Autumn Concerto. Personally, I consider it the best Tw drama I've seen so far. But yes, forget the suspense, at least regarding some aspects... :P

When I was at university, I used to tutor some middle and high school students in literature. One of them, aged 16, was a true disaster in writing essays and couldn't put two sentences together for the life of her. I was determined to make her read and, since she didn't like any genre, nor did she read anything except perhaps the weather forecasts, I lent her a novel by Agatha Christie. They are simple, well written and being thrillers, I thought any normal human being would get curious enough to finish it.
One week after she came to me with a huge grin on her face and chirped: "Rita, I read the book!"
"Wow", I thought.
"After the first chapter, I went directly to the last because I wanted to know how it ended!"
I think my face lost all colour. I was so furious, that I shouted: "Give me back my precious book RIGHT NOW!!!! You don't deserve to read it!"
I mean, if you don't like the suspense, can't you tell me so at once and I give you Barbara Cartland?

LOL Rita I love hearing ur anecdotes...yes i too would have been horrified in ur shoes lol
I dont understand people who go looking for spoilers (cough kamz) as that defeats the purpose
in my teen years i think i read most of the Agatha Christie books & not once did it occur to me check the ending lol
I also had to laugh at the Barbara Cartland comment hahah there is a comedy show in England where they take the mickey out of BC lol its very funny.
& finally yes Autums Concerto is a great drama the first 10 episodes are brilliant the pace then slowed down a bit for me & i think they cld hv wrapped it up in fewer episodes

I've wanted to watch Autumn's Concerto but haven't gotten around to it yet (:
And hahahaa I love your anecdote Rita! I'd be furious, too, haha how do you call that "finished" ?? xD It's worse than Sparknotes - at least with Sparknotes you learn what happens in each chapter. Still ruins it by not actually reading it from the book itself though. Haha
After finishing episode 3....I will say that I am getting into the drama. Get the feeling that Luo Xi is not the guy she ends up with - although I like him better than Ou Chen at the moment. Hard to say what direction the drama will go really. I like her friends, though (: And the music for the most part is nice [a few songs I don't like].

I'm about to start episode 5, too, haha (:
I'm less confused now, how about you? Haha

sort of some of the flashback stuff has been explained but they showed us a new one * where xio ma hit some guy with a brick lol im sure that will come back to haunt her at some stage also i think they are making HXM bit creepy/devious now hope he doesnt become a total weirdo baddie *
BTW i wonder if the *****iness between the actresses is an accurate depiction of real life
10-30-2011 08:49 PM
Yeah they showed us that to confuse us yet again xD haha Episode 5 kinda spoilers **I'm sure it'll come back again within the next few episodes and we'll see what that's all about. I hope Luo Xi doesn't become totally obsessive or anything like that haha. It's what's turning me off from Ou Chen - they both act like they own her. I love Luo Xi's character but the possessiveness is a bit too much. Now she's in a scandal with Ling Hao haha.

It makes me wonder - when they were filming the slapping scene and she was supposedly actually hitting her for real [her face didn't look swollen to me but whatever hahhaa] - it's kinda ironic to think that it actually wasn't a real slap. A scene within a scene type of thing haha. **
All in all - I am enjoying this drama haha. It's not boring me
