Open Thread: Someday Or One Day Episodes 1 & 2

Welcome to the Open Thread, everyone! Thank you for joining me on this group watch of Someday Or One Day! 🥰 I’ll confess upfront that I have heart-eyes for Greg Hsu (also known as Greg Han) in this show, so I’m indulging my fangirl heart, in having him and his lovely smile headline our inaugural post. 😍

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT, before we begin:

1. We will be adopting a ZERO SPOILER POLICY for this Open Thread, except for events that have happened in the show, up to this point.

Because of Show’s twisty nature, we don’t want to spoil anyone’s watch experience with spoilers. The spoiler tags don’t work in email notifications, therefore, please take note that WE WILL NOT BE USING SPOILER TAGS FOR THIS OPEN THREAD. ANY AND ALL SPOILERS WILL BE REDACTED to protect first-time viewers in our midst (although, I’d appreciate it if you would save me the trouble of having to redact spoilers, heh 😅).

We need to protect the innocent! 😉

2. HOWEVER!! If you’d like to discuss spoilers from a rewatcher’s point of view, I’ve created a SPOILER ZONE for you, where you can discuss all the spoilers you’d like, without the need for spoiler warnings. You can find it here!

3. Discussions on this thread don’t have to close when newer threads open, just so you know! But as we progress through our group watch, please keep the discussions clear of spoilers from future episodes, so that future readers coming to this thread won’t be accidentally spoiled. Does that make sense?

Without further ado, here are my reactions to this set of episodes; have fun in the Open Thread, everyone! ❤️

Dropped: First Love Again [China]

When I saw that Patrick Shih was the male lead in this show, I sat up and took immediate notice, because I’d really enjoyed his outing in 2020’s Someday Or One Day (which is an amazing show, by the way – and we’re planning a group watch of it too, so do join us!), and I was excited to see him switch it up from beta second male lead, to alpha male lead.

Unfortunately, my friends, upon checking this show out, I’ve decided to give it the dubious honor of being one of the few shows that I’ve hard dropped, after only a single episode. 😅

Here’s a broad look at the whys, I hope you guys enjoy. ❤️

Also, to be fair, Show has its fans. If you check out Show’s page on MyDramaList, you’ll see that there are lots of very positive comments on it, too. So just because Show didn’t work for me, doesn’t mean that you’ll hate it, necessarily?

Review: Someday Or One Day [Taiwan]

THE SHORT VERDICT:

Smartly written, deftly executed, and wonderfully acted, Someday Or One Day is a gem of a show that feels like it’s head and shoulders above its peers.

Intricate and clever, yet full of emotional heft, Show is a rare creature that does an excellent and consistent job of engaging both the mind and the heart.

Our main cast is strong and unfailingly delivers well-rounded, faceted performances, but the stand-out for me is male lead Greg Hsu, who crept under my skin and stole my heart when I wasn’t looking.

Altogether fantastic, and well worth the watch.
