Hi, I am a Chinese-Vietnamese born American. I can speak five languages (three fluent), but I speak Cantonese-Chinese. I have been watching dramas for as long as I can remember (I'm pretty sure I have been an avid drama watcher since I was around nine-ten years old), and mainly watch dramas from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Korea, and some Thai. I am also an artist, reader, hiker, and enjoy traveling, listening to music and playing badminton.
Here is how I rate titles on MDL (and I am a pretty easy rater):
10.0 stars: Absolute fav! Definitely re-watch worthy, or just amazingly awesome.
9.5 stars: Loved it! Maybe re-watch worthy, but overall good feels.
9.0 stars: Fantastic! Excellent! But I maybe had like one problem with it.
8.5 stars: Very interesting, different, but not too memorable (or fan-girl level).
8.0 stars: Pretty great, but had some annoying things or wasn't as interesting at times.
7.5 stars: Great, engaging, but sometimes found myself confused.
7.0 stars: Good, nothing earth-shattering.
6.5 stars: OK, nothing dramatically ground-breaking.
6.0 stars: Fair, I'll give it credit for an interesting plot and some good scenes.
5.5 stars: Average, nothing surprising, some interesting things.
5.0 stars: Mediocre, don't really have any good or bad feelings, or just felt nothing at all.
4.5 stars: Eh, could have been more interesting.
4.0 stars: So-so, didn't really enjoy it. Kinda bad.
3.5 stars: Bad.
3.0 stars: No.
2.5 stars: Nope.
2.0 stars: Maybe like one good thing...
1.5 stars: Sorry.
1.0 stars: Horrible, I did not understand it at all.
No rating: Probably was too long ago so I don't recall anything, or just wasn't worth my time (but it's probably the first one).
