Sometimes you suddenly develop a craving for something, and today I suddenly developed a craving for Pi Zi. Yup, I needed a dose of Vic Zhou in Black & White or else I was going to start convulsing. It happens to all of us, trust me. Which is how I ended up watching some seriously awesome B&W MVs on Youtube.
The C-netizens are beyond wickedly talented when it comes to creating MV content for their fave dramas. I remember lots of my friends loved B&W, and maybe some folks have heard tons of great stuff about it but never enough to check it out.
Well, I pretty much guarantee that if you watch either of these MVs, you’re gonna want to watch B&W. See, it’s not a just cop procedural, it’s not just an epic love story, it’s not just a buddy drama, it’s not just about birth secrets, it’s not just about world-changing conspiracies – it’s about ALL of that, in one drama.
B&W is a drama I love love love to pieces, and I add two additional loves because one of my fave actors simply gave a go-for-broke performance in there. I am not talking about Mark Chao, who ended up winning the Best Actor award for it. I am talking about Vic, who got shafted so big time if an investigation was launched I would support it. But enough grousing from me, let’s watch some MVs, shall we?
MV for Exile Love (the ballad in B&W and one of my fave drama songs, EVER – oh, and Vic totally shoulda won the Best Actor Award just by the scenes in this MV alone):
MV for About Us (And the MV starts with a OMG so good scene btw our OT3):
B&W was the first drama in ages where I simply wanted more of it after it ended. I made my sister buy me the OST and the picture book when she was in Taiwan, and she gamely went to multiple bookstores until she could find it. And my god is it as gorgeous to read as the drama was to watch. If Athena is even half as good as B&W, I shall forever be the drama gods faithful servant.
[Edit: I’ve already bitched enough about the mess that is B&W the movie post Golden Bell-Gate, but if Director Tsai makes Yin Xiong and Chen Lin get together because Pi Zi is NOT in the movie, I am going to personally shred the celluloid. No, just no. Take it outside the story where the drama ended, and just let me pretend that Pi Zi and Chen Lin found their refuge away from all the everything that was dictating their lives. And I’m happy to have Yin Xiong continue his Superman ways and rid Ocean City from crime.]
