Once I finally got around to watching the C-drama Love Actually with Joe Cheng, Lee Da Hae, Li Yi Feng, and Anna Fang, I wished the heck I didn’t even bother and could continue to daydream about how cute and wonderful it was. Sometimes getting a bubble burst just compounds the disappointment, and in this case, the drama ought to be renamed Stupid Actually. I don’t think its terrible and dreadful and a blight on the earth, for it certain has its moments, but the plot was cobbled together by an elementary school kid cherry picking story lines from dramas she’s seen her mother watch before. It was strung together in ways that just felt so random, and ultimately the story even went all makjang in the second half, thereby killing the element of peppy cuteness it at least had in the beginning. But overall I’ve seen way worse from C-dramas, and LA simply let me down because I thought it had such potential with a cast I loved and a bright effervescent aura about it. One thing that did deliver in LA was the pairing of Joe and Da Hae was as amazing as it could be. The chemistry was all there, and visually they made a stunning couple. They also kissed a lot in the drama, and that pretty much saved me from wanting to spork my eyes out from the rest of the stupidity happening onscreen. Sadly my baby Feng Feng didn’t fare as well in terms of his story line or OTP, but watching him onscreen was a pleasure as always. Check out the pretty Joe and Da Hae kissing stills from the drama and perhaps consider skipping the actual thing. You won’t be missing out on much.
