I’ve been watching a lot of Taiwanese (idol) dramas at the moment, as you know I’ve mentions Autumn’s Concerto. I really enjoyed watching the first half of that drama, made me cry buckets!!! Then it kind of went downhill.
I’m going to start off with 星光下的童話 Because Of You also known as Fairytale Under the Starlight. It is CTS’ (a television channel) entrant for the sunday 10pm slot, the battle between Idol dramas.
Unfortunately 星光下的童話 isn’t doing too well in the battle with ratings averaging 0.57 for the first 6 episodes aired so far. I’m actually quite surprised as it’s not a bad watch, maybe it’s because there aren’t many ‘idols’ or well-known ones in the drama. Well the only one of the leads I know is 陳楚河 Baron Chen, ok I kind of know 賴雅妍 Megan Lai as well but that’s kind of it.
The plot it self so far doesn’t seem so bad, maybe because it’s still quite slow? I mean in these six episodes all that has kind of happened is that a big superstar/idol stole the girlfriend (upcoming singer) of a stunt double (Baron Chen, and that stunt double has somewhat gotten popular because he had punched that idol. That big idol star (played by 李國毅 Leon Li) has a childhood friend (Megan Lai) (who is a few years older than him), who is also his die-hard fan and you can tell she likes him. But she gets involved with the stunt double.
You can tell where the drama is going to head off right? Baron becomes a rising celebrity and him and Megan become friends and they start to like each other, but Lego believes that she belongs to him. The girlfriend or ex-girlfriend (田中千繪 Tanaka Chie) comes to get Baron back.
I suppose its a bit typical but so far I do like it, I prefer 就想賴著妳 Down With Love over it but I prefer this to 偷心大聖 P.S. 男 P.S Man. Well that might change as so far I don’t like how the director has edited P.S. Man, its quite poorly done.
Oh one thing I really like about 星光下的童話 Because Of You is the OSTs!!! I’m really enjoying 李國毅 Leon Li’s 因為你. Its the ending song.
