I’m always sad to move on from a favorite drama, character, or pairing. The nostalgic sadness is hammered home when the actor or actress sheds the look of the character from the drama. It’s been a nearly a year since TW-drama In a Good Way ended but I don’t think the drama will ever seem less than the perfect viewing experience memory for me. It was exactly what I needed, delivered almost perfectly with only the ending being less than ideal for the romantic in me. I know leads Lego Lee and Kristen Jen‘s characters will (must, have to, whatever) end up together but not seeing it onscreen really sucked the happy out of me.
I feel even worse that Lego got saddled with a crap followup drama in Aim High but luckily Kristen is making kissy wonderfully with Kingone Wang in Someone Like You, one out of two ain’t bad. I recently came across a picture of Lego with his Honey and Clover costar Ito Chiaki – she was in Taipei for a concert and Lego went to support her, the two snapped a picture backstage that showed off Lego’s new grey/silver locks. Only he can pull it off but sadly Liu Chuan is really gone for good now. Come back with a better drama soon, okay Lego? I’m waiting for you!
