[Current Mainland Chinese Drama 2018] Meteor Garden 流星花園

Recommended Posts

@lan_lan Agreed. After all the drama with the monkey girl, I thought SC would be the one who will take the initiative to start their relationship, but nah, Si was literally begging her to date him. I found it extremely frustrating. Gahhhhhh. And what is it with the 10%, 20%...if you don't love him that much then why did you spent an whole ep bawling your eyes out when he was with the monkey girl??? You are only fooling yourself, Shan Cai...Tsk tsk. That's why I kinda am looking forward to the London arc and amnesia arc, it would be a nice change for her to go after him at least once. 

 

@flameonyou I miss her little brother as well. His relationship with Jun Pyo/Tsukasa was endearing. I like Qing He as well though. He is kinda cute, too bad that SC bro-zoned him. But I wish for him to get together with Li Zhen at the end

Couldn't agree more, my friend. 

 

That's why I'm kind of fed of with her constantly pointing out the "I will fight against your mother." It's like if you like him, jealous of him, then just tell him the truth and fight for him. 

 

Hopefully it gets better in London and when he loses his memories

I have problem clicking the notif, 

And i read somewhere that the heroine in manga was more frustrating and this version followed the manga most? If that's true i wouldn't ever read it lmao. 
 

I think they are both still immature by the way they treat each other. Irl it's like they're never meant to be or they need time to grow up, whether being separated or not. 

 

Yes and finally she opened up her feeling. It's like it's going to be deeper and painful by the time DMS leaves her. Knowing how hard and long the process of SC confirmed her feeling, aaw. 

I hope they cut the amnesia arc, in this century. I still have this positive minds, as i haven't watched ep 25-26 and previews. 

 

Anw I miss the brother of Makino/jandi esp when Domyouji treat her brother so well.

 

Plot twist

producer gives sanchai up to qinghe. So far he knows Sanchai the best lmao

 

 

Having only seen up to Netflix ep 25:

 

Totally agree re: immaturity and it's partly why this story can be so frustrating, I have to check myself and remember that it may well be their first relationship ever which means communication is key...and not so prevalent here. (Arguably i'm too old for this story. :crazy:)

 

Also - earlier in this forum, someone (can't remember who off the top of my head, apologies!) brilliantly pointed out that dating or being with DMS would be a game changer for SC, her life would change monumentally and already had as a result, plus he's also an intense guy. When not having experienced a relationship before and then having someone imprint their feelings onto you so consistently and emphatically and not always in the best manner, its a good reason to dig your heels in.

 

All the above being said, I would like to see the characters grow a little more and start talking to each other rather than just jumping at every little infraction. Learning from each instance is a nice change. Such as when DMS posted their relationship status online. If she didn't want that public, explaining that would have been nice rather than yelling at him, DMS reaction was actually quite good to that response. Ridiculous but less...reactionary. Which is nice. 

 

Also I agree that i'd like SC to own her feelings, if she admits she likes him - then she likes him, rather than hiding or being wishy-washy, but again i'm contradicting myself with what I've mentioned above. Being in a relationship for the first time, especially one that for all intents and purposes is a 'soulmates-meant-for-each-other-defcon5-in-every-iteration-they-are-meant-to-be-together-not-even-death-will-separate-us' kind of a relationship, would be jarring and kind of scary. But still...it would be nice to see some of the cute, getting to know each other, enjoying each other's company, relationship building material, before it all goes to hell in a hand basket. It would give some weight to the relationship.

Daomingsi losing memories is not something most would want. because there will be another girl antagonist again for Ah Si <_< 

 

Anyway, even the push & pull from the couple and their constant fighting are still so cute tho & sweet :wub:  the only thing I’m frustrated in this story are the antagonists interrupting their bickering/scenes :lol:

@turtle0217 You know what they say about actions speaking louder than words...her standing up against mom is something that really made me look up to her. I'm sure i wouldn't be as brave as her if the situations were same. I only wish for her to open her heart and see for herself who she truly loves. Luckily Si is persistent, any other weak guy would've given up by now. Tsk tsk. 

 

@lan_lan Did you see the confrontation scene SC had with Mom last night??

Spoiler

If the translations are right, She called her an richard simmons. Bahahahahaha. I do hope she realizes that the person she is swearing now will become her mother in law in the future. LOL.

Exactly. For once, she needs to think about herself and do what she needs. If she truly loves him, tell him that and they can fight through the battle together. He's willing to go through it with her, but it's her who cannot make up her mind.

Ok the MOST hated character in dramaland right now must be Caina. Twitter is literally on fire bitching about her. LOL. Too bad though. I just hope people won't give up on this show yet. And I hope we are already done with the Caina and her uncle's storyline. Can we go back to our Si and Shan Cai already??

This song, the lyrics and the scenes included....gives me so much feels. I love it. Guess this is from the original TW version. Do you guys know whether they made use of this song in the 2018 version somewhere??? I can't remember. I also like the Harlem Yu's song...

As far as I remember, the song is from Meteor Rain, a short spin-off story of Meizuo and Ximen-XiaoYou. Also included in special episode of Meteor Garden 2001. In this 2018 version only the instrumental appears in some scenes I think

I did and my mouth dropped open.  Kind of out of character though?  She can talk back all she likes but I thought it was weird she would swear at her.  Especially to her bf's mom (even if she'd decided at that moment they were over).  

 

As for today's episodes:

Forget about Caina, the show has turned into a full on infomercial.  It's soooo distracting.  Practically every scenes there are PPL and after watching, I now see that that whole uniform sequence was basically an instant noodle commercial -_- 

 

Highlights from today's eps were:

Spoiler

Shancai's level up in cooking skills

Lei and Ximen making fun of Meizhou at the cafe....hao hao hao hao hao hao hao :lol:

Wow that house that the old guy designed...I want one lol.

Poor Meizhou today, my heart hurts for him.

Then my heart hurt even more for Si sitting in his dark room watching the video of Shancai :(

 

I'm staying away from Twitter for now because it's such a buzzkill to watch the show with all the noise from over there.  So although it's not as addictive as the eps with more SiCai, it's still enjoyable.  I'm not going to worry or think too hard about what direction it's going into for now.  I just really wish they'd stop with the excessive advertising.

 

New BTS of the boys.  I just can't even with these guys.  Notice how Dylan ran over to help YY after Connor threw her on the ground lol

 

Meteor Garden 2018 Weibo update 08.07.18

"The 4 people who simultaneously step onto the paths to find love, even if it's tear filled, the young aren't afraid of obstacles, youth is most beautiful with you."

Oh.. Daoming Si's scenes are just heartbreaking. Dylan Wang, you're too good. I can feel your pain, too. :bawling:

 

Love the new poster. Love the stairway, too. Thanks for sharing

omg just seen preview for ep 30-32. why is Daomingsi being hard on Shancai? I think it will be more painful sooner :tears: 

 

Daomingsi should’ve given more room for understandment to Shancai as her situation is not normal to her. she already handled the issue the best she could in her capacity. His pain is overpowering his logic. I’m so mad! Thank god Lei is there to rescue Shancai -_-

 

and why is that monkey girl hugging Ah Si?!! didn’t understand what they’re saying.. maybe I’ll stop watching for a while until it gets lighter again :sweatingbullets:

Yes, hopefully in this version, Daomingsi will not fall for that random girl when he will have amnesia and it will be just 2-3 episodes just like in Japanese & Korean version. unlike the Taiwanese version which had the worst season 2, that was traumatizing  to say the least :sweatingbullets:

 

I was traumatized by the entire season 2 of the original Taiwanese version of Meteor Garden. The entire season focused on Daoming Si and Yesha and we only saw Shancai and Daoming Si together in the beginning and end of season 2. It was so horrible. I cried my eyes out over that one and I had to force myself to just get through the entire season. I really, really hope they don't do that in this version although I don't think they would because they've pretty much abbreviated every arc so I'm hoping they won't linger too much on the amnesia.

@rimjayc I so loved ep 23. Did you notice how they didn't bicker and was talking normally in that one scene where he asks her to go with him to buy some books?? I know it's some ppl for an online site, but I still loved it. I absolutely loved how they help each other in studies now, it's a good thing that Si is a good student in this version. LOL. 

Also can someone explain me what he was saying about going to graduate school or something??? I didn't understand that part. All I got is that he is staying in the uni for longer so that he can graduate with her.

He said it when Li zhen slipped and the cake fell on him. And I'm pretty sure there is also one more scene where he said that quote, but I can't remember now. LOL

 

I loved that part too! It's easy to gloss over because plot-wise, it is not significant but in terms of their relationship - pretty significant. I can't wait to see more of them just going through everyday life, going through the mundane stuff together. It's so refreshing to see them get along so well especially since we all know that Daoming Si and Shancai are the perfect fit for each other. Daoming Si and monkey girl were too alike to work but DS and SC compliment each other.

@turtle0217 Oh I'm convinced that Dylan Wang is a born performer. He owns that stage like it's no big deal. And Caesar too. Caesar has such a beautiful voice and he sings incredibly well, my heart melts at the sight of him. He is too precious.

 

I forgot to mention about the scene in 24, when Si and Shan cai fights because he hit that jerk of a guy who was XiaoYou's bf. When she angrily comes down, there you have our F3 squad enacting their breakup dramatically. HAHAHAHA. I actually really love the friendship between the F4 in this version. They give a lot of (bed) scenes between Si and Lei and there are also plenty lot of scenes where the F3 gives advices to our helpless puppy Si. LOL. 

 

I'm really like F3 in this version too. I feel like they balance out all the heavy emotional stuff with humor and I also like that we get a deeper dive into their close friendship. I feel like in this version, F3 actively show their deep love and concern for each other and also the lengths they would go to to support one another. I think it's quite endearing how quickly they realized that Shancai is good for Daoming Si and are willing to help them out for their sakes! LOL

@rimjayc I think we can all agree that we need an ending like in the J-VERSION. Wedding plus a hint of little Si. My life would be complete. But I do wonder how he will even take care of a kid when he is still a kid himself. LOL. Also I want that first night scene from the manga. None of the versions had it but since Angie Chai said she is going to closely follow the manga, she ought to include that scene. Hahahaha. 

 

Yes please! I would love to see a first night scene. It doesn't have to be too explicit (to keep it PG) but it would be nice to see life after the wedding you know? I would be all for sequels where we get to see their married life and possibly children.

Can I also just say that it feels like we are wasting episodes on Zhou Caina? C'mon show, we've had 4 episodes with more Caina in it than Daoming Si and Shancai and I would really like for us to get back on track with our couple!! LOL

I'm just here, but I'm following MG 2018 from the first episode
Honestly I really hope MG 2018 can perfect all versions, or eliminate some disappointments

I really enjoyed of their love story like roller coaster from ep 1 to 26, but when ep 27 I stopped watching and just peeked a little at IG. Maybe someone can explain the SC and DMs conversations when it rains? because since then DMS seems to release SC

for SC, well the same from all MG versions she always hesitates in a prolonged manner. I feel the Japanese SC and the old Taiwanese are better able to describe their feelings. I hope PDNim does not make SC MG 2018 like the BBF GJD (Hoel it's very bad in a love chemistry). But I tried to understand that SC in MG 2018 was a cheerful girl who had an ordinary dream, she must be very shaken and it was hard to believe that a rich boy loved her. Shancai who had never dated had to face the challenge of heavy love and an evil mother-in-law who destroyed her parents and friends (Maybe if I were an SC, I would run away). But really I want the SC MG 2018 to be able  express more love for DMS, hopefully the remaining episodes don't disappoint

For DMS. He is very handsome, fierce, funny and really loves SC. I just hope he doesn't try to accept the monkey girl to vent his anger at SC (I'm sad to see the monkey girl hugging the DMS in preview ep 31). What if the PD-nim removes the DMS portion of memory loss. I was very traumatized by MG 2,  DMS and Yessa sections were very much up to almost the entire drama. At that time I was really supportive if SC and Lei ended up marrying hahaha, because I hated DMS who loved Yessa too much.

Lastly I want PD-nim to make lots of scans dating SC and DMS, give them a normal dating life (send sweet messages, eat together, sweet kisses, and funny fights). This will make fans treated because honestly SC and DMS in other versions face conflicts and quarrels more than normal dating lives

What happened ? Do monkey girls take advantage of the situation? I didn't dare to see ep 27-30, but the preview for ep 31 made me curious
