Why am I watching an end-of-year festive movie at the end of August, you ask? Heh. You could say I’m gearing up early for the new year, or that I’m just suuuper late to the party. 😜
In all honesty, it’s just because I stumbled on this movie while browsing titles on iQIYI, and perked up at the sight of so many familiar faces. Which means I basically watched this for the reunion feels, didn’t I?
No matter, coz it was a pretty easy-breezy watch; a perfectly acceptable way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Let me be the first to say that I’m not sure I “get” this show, so this review will only be my best attempt at understanding this show. I just.. was too curious about this one, after seeing the quirky trailers and posters, to pass it up.
To help us gain more insight and understanding into this show, Dame Holly, metaphor whisperer extraordinaire, who recently brought us a guest review of Greasy Melo, will be back to give us her take on this very different snowflake of a drama, probably in the next week or two. Stay tuned for that! (Update: Dame Holly’s guest post is here!)
In the meantime, allow me to share my (probably mostly) half-baked thoughts on this show with you guys. 😅
