    Default My Queen / Queen of No Marriage 败犬女王 (Cheryl Yang and Ethan Ruan)

    Since nobody seems to have posted anything on this idol drama yet, let me be the first!

    Quite enjoyed this series. Love the quirky supporting characters and the ending, even though it's not the traditional main-characters-get-married-and-live-happily-ever-after type.

    I disliked Lucas' late girlfriend Han Xiangyun though - she was too whiny and forever throwing tantrums over small things! :P

    I had to edit the title because according to dramawiki it is known as My Queen.

    Plus, I've watched many of those jie di relationship dramas and that's probably why I haven't watched it yet.

    Started watching this yesterday and really love it, definitely not the usual Taiwan Idol drama. Going to buy the DVD and keep it.

    It's a good show. I find the Sanli drama series the only watchable taiwanese idol dramas these days. All the other production companys make shows with horrible storylines

    I finished watching this series two weeks ago; I really liked it. There were so many things I could actually sort of relate to:
    Wushuangs insecurities, mentality and also the mentality and problems of Wushuangs old classmates in uni.
    The three theme songs were also very catchy.
    In general I thought this was not the average Taiwanese idol drama.

    Is this series new or old??? It seems to be getting a lot of praises. Maybe I will give it a try...
    Respect other people's opinions and views. If we learn how to do that than all of these fights and arguments will not occur.

    Yes, it's recent. It's been out for a few months now. One of Ethan Ruan's series this year.

    Firstly, you have to know the term ‘bai quan’ (underdog) which is often used in the series and that it has a different meaning than its English counterpart.
    I have read this in a magazine; apparently a Japanese author wrote a book and she used the term underdog in her work. However, she used the term underdog on herself to describe a 30 odd years old successful but single woman. The book was a huge success and the new connotation of the term blew over to the Chinese language too (especially in Taiwan).

    The main character of the series is a reporter called Shan Wushuang. She is 32 months and seven months old, she has always been number one or the best in everything with the exception of relationships and marriage.
    Six years ago, she was dumped at the altar by her lover and ever since she is plagued by her own insecurities.
    Due to her strong and abrasive personality, Wushuang is not very popular amongst her colleagues and former classmates from university. Despite her tough appearance, she is a very insecure but caring woman.
    Ethan (Lucas) is a 25 years old polymath; he’s a medical school dropout due to a tragic event. Now he is drifting from one job to another. Although, Lucas is seemingly very positive and optimistic, he is just putting up a strong faade to hide the fact that he is grieving inside.

    Wushuang and Lucas’s crossed paths when Wushuang was on the trail of a hot and juicy story on a cheating politician and stole a bike, which was a Christmas present to an orphanage, and Lucas chased after her in his Father Christmas suit.
    That is the start of a rather unusual friendship between the two of them.

    I'm currently half-way into this series and I really love it! It's been ages since i've watched such an entertaining and captivating Taiwanese drama. The humor is not stupidly over-the-top like most Taiwanese idol shows and the romance and touching scenes aren't the typical cheesy, exaggerated and predictable ones. I really like how they portrayed Lucas' and Wushuang's past relationships, especially Lucas'. The significance and real meaning behind the potted plant his late gf left him was really nice and touching. Also love the music used for this series, especially the piano pieces and the opening theme by Fish Leong.

    Last but not least, I really like the lead couple. I never knew who Cheryl Yang was before this and am really surprised by how talented an actress she is. Her emotions, actions and words just seem so natural and realistic; she really manages to make Wushuang an extremely likable character despite all her flaws and really is the highlight of this series. Of course, Ethan Ruan is also doing a great job as the super sweet and caring Lucas as well. Hopefully the series will continue to entertain in the 2nd half.

    On a side note, I can't help but draw parallels between this series and K-drama "Dal Ja's Spring". The basic plot and leading couple in here are very similar to DJS- A cool and supposedly poor young chap (who's in fact very rich and intelligent) falling for an older but confident and financially successful career woman.
    There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

    This series is just airing in Singapore. I watched a few middle episodes, with Wushuang attending the Uni gathering and her ex-fiance coming back.

    I must say this story is very original and quite different from Dalja's Spring although both are about older women falling in love with younger guys.

    I find Shan Wushuang a very practical character with some good traits to look up to. Couldn't believe Cheryl had been out there for 10 years. Time must have flown.

    Wow, such positive remarks from everyone. I confess to being quite infatuated with Ethan Ruan after Fated to Love You. Will definitely give this a try once I find some free time. I initially wanted to spare some time for Autumn Concerto, but heard some mixed reviews on the later half of the show. I'll side with Ethan over Vanness for now

    I started watching this a few days ago and blew through it in like a day. Yes it really is that addicting! Suffice to say it is a great show. Among the best I've ever seen from Taiwan. The lead actress is awesome and I had thought Ethan was just a pretty boy but he's rather good at acting himself. Highly recommended!

    Probably will post a detailed review sometime soon. =D
