categories: 

SpeXial  is a uprising Taiwanese idol group. Some of the members are more popular due to acting, while some are talented in other areas. They resemble some Korean idol groups and they are definitely the pin-up boys in town. Recently, Sam Lin was called to serve in the army. Many fans missed him during his absence. I look forward to his return after the army. SpeXial is cute and funky and their music are pretty good too. Next, I have a ranking chart for them based on their looks. This is to introduce the members in the group too.


Sam Lin

Sam Lin is the most handsome among the rest of his group mates. Although he is shorter than the rest of the guys, he has a good looking face. No doubt, he is in Charge of Visual in the group. I think Sam is charismatic and is able to act in drama. I hope to see more of him in the future!


Simon 

Simon is cute and boyish, whereas Sam is cool and handsome. They are two cute and good looking but my bias is still Sam Lin. 


Evan 

Evan look gentle and soft spoken. What do you think?


Wayne

Wayne look gentle and kind. He looks like a cute little boy next door. 


Wes

He is the leader in the group and his English name is wes.


Teddy 

Teddy  is the typical pretty boy. He look friendly and bright.

Riley

He is cute and pleasant looking. 


Matthew 

Matthew look friendly and approachable.


Ian 

He is cute and boyish.



Win

He is the new member in SpeXial.

Drama Queen's  comments 


This is the first idol drama that I have watched after so many years. I am glad to find a drama which I have interest and decided to marathon the drama to the end. We were introduced to a Taiwan idol group SpeXial. The handsome and charming rapper Sam is the lead actor in this drama. First of all, he does have the look and charisma to be Mu Liu Bing. However, Sam expression can be a little stiff at times. Most of the time, his acting is generally convincing as the icy cool Mu Liu Bing who has a sad childhood. His interaction and chemistry with Pets Tseng is excellent. In my opinion, Sam Lin does have the potential to be a good actor, he just need more experience in acting in order to be more consistent in his acting skill. I definitely hope to see more of him in the future. 



It had been years since I last seen Pets on television and i only remember her as a singer not an actress. She surprised me with her role as Ming Xiao Xi in this drama. However, I don't like Pets Tseng in this hairstyle. Although we know that is a wig on her head, she look terrible with that appearance. However, that is image that our village girl have in this series and i agree that she has to act in this way. Unfortunately, I still cannot get used to her village style even after watching her for some time. Despite that, Pets Tseng acting skill is considered more consistent among her co stars. She has good chemistry with Sam acting as a couple that bicker constantly but in their heart cares so much for each other. 


Evan is the typical second lead in this drama that is destined for a sad ending. Feng Jian Che has a gentle and warm personality that draws people to him. Unfortunately, he is destined to be hurt from the beginning since Xiao Xi obviously love Mu Liu Bing only. Evan acting is raw but this role suited him very well. I like the way he cares for our Ming Xiao Xi and be her guardian angel to her. Many fans say that he is a better choice than Mu Liu Bing. 


Chinese actor Xu Kai Pin is good as the devoted heartbroken man Dong Hao Nan. This drama is obviously promoting the Spexial but he is able to shine on his own despite being cast aside most of the time. 



Wu Xiong act as Dong Hao Xue, the younger sister of Dong Hao Nan. She has a secret crush on Feng Jian Che. Her performance is basically the same throughout the show. Nothing bad but is not outstandingly either. 


Chao Yi Yue act as the arrogant and stubborn Tie Sha Xin. She is always picking on Xiao Xi and is jealous whenever Mu Liu Bing shows interest in Xiao Xi. She acted well in this drama but she need to improve on her speech and expressions in acting. 


A special mention to Quinlivan Hannah who acted as a bimbo Lucy in this drama. She does a good job and excel in this role which grab my attention in this drama. 


It is obvious that this drama is promoting Taiwan idol group SpeXial through this idol drama. I like the storu in the beginning because of the wacky scenes and funny plots. This story line resembles Meteor garden but in different setting and characters. In fact, the two story is somewhat familiar for idol drama fans. It is the typical spiky poor girl falling in love with a icy cool handsome man who love to "play pranks" with the female protagonist, showing his playful side to the girl.  

Unfortunately, the drama became dramatic and somewhat ridiculous towards the end. It is a shame as this drama does have a promising start and  it gradually lost its magic and direction in the middle and the ending is mediocre. Moon River is a predictable story but I would expect more sweetness in this drama. I am always happy to see this couple two bickers and play with each other, but after they became a couple the story line became boring and lost its humor. 

It is really Pets Tseng and Sam Lin who carries the whole drama on their shoulders and I would say that they did their job pretty well. However, the script is a letdown when they turn the whole thing into a drama spurred by revenge and bitterness. It is not only the inconsistency in story line that upsets me, our heroine Ming Xiao Xi character is inconsistent too. She is portrayed as a righteous marital arts expert. However, she immediately give up when she was accused of cheating in an exam? She will be accused to be a thief and she just accept it? Yes, it may be urged that she is supposed to be silly and native. However, through this minor incident, we can see that Ming Xiao Xi do not act base on her own belief and morale value, which is totally out of character. 

I like the beginning when Mu Liu Bing and Ming Xiao Xi bicker around and acted childishly. Xiao Xi calling his boyfriend Lao Mu Liu Bing sound sweet and cute too. Although Pets Tseng is older than Sam, she tried her best to fit into this role with that mushroom haircut. In my opinion, the editing and pace of the drama is weird. Towards the end, the drama became heavy and depressed. In the end, I insisted on watching this drama because of the main characters. In conclusion, this drama succeed in promoting the main characters and SpeXial but the script writing is inconsistent and the character growth cannot be seen throughout the drama except for Mu Liu Bing. I would recommend this drama if you like to watch eye candies. In addition, the original soundtracks were good too.

大家是否记得这位风度翩翩,帅气十足的情歌王子张信哲呢?他就是90年代刺扎乐坛的巨星,甚至和当时很红的四大天王处在平起平坐的地位。我记得在念国小时就知道有一位既斯文又可爱的台湾歌手名字叫-张信哲。我记得大批粉丝都亲切地称他为阿哲。我喜欢阿哲已经很多年了,这也透露自己的年龄了吧? 这二十多年阿哲都演唱自己擅长的抒情歌曲,之后在发专辑时也开始尝试演唱关于亲情的歌曲。张信哲是华语音乐的一个传奇人物,他所演唱的经典歌曲大家都耳熟能详,每一首都可说是KTV必点歌曲。

后来张信哲的事业起起落落,直到把重心放在中国大陆发展。随着时代的变迁,阿哲也逐渐被大家认定是已经过气的歌手。又一次张信哲开演唱会时,我和家人一起观赏。当时有一些发福的阿哲站在台上,台下的观众都十分陶醉在阿哲的歌声中。我们回味着老歌,心里很激动也十分感动。难免会让我回忆起自己小时候是如此崇拜这位偶像啊!

不靠绯闻和假新闻博取新闻的阿哲一路踏实地工作。我其实很佩服阿哲的态度和努力奋斗的精神。张信哲在我是歌手的表现很出色。这也促使很久没有关注偶像的我开始又再一次被阿哲的表现震撼到了!不想一直消耗情怀的阿哲想要在舞台上展现全新的面貌。相信大家都听到阿哲清澈,明亮的歌声吧?无论如何他始终是我心中永远独一无二的情歌王子!以下是我很喜欢的经典歌曲,希望与大家一起分享。




1) 宽容

我记得小时候听到张信哲的卡带感到很开心。记得那是1995年,我还在念国小时听过的歌。我家人也非常喜欢专辑里每一首歌曲。当时正流行华语音乐,张信哲的歌声十分特别也充满着温暖。A和B面的卡带都收录了经典歌曲,每一首歌都朗朗上口。这时候的张信哲已经是最“火”的台湾实力派歌手。


2) 忘情忘爱

3)说谎

张信哲的歌声非常适合唱抒情歌,聪明的阿哲也非常清楚!这首单曲就是哲式情歌的好例子,阿哲唱出了感动,无奈和悲伤。阿哲的歌曲就是适合一听再听,百听不厌的的经典。



4)用情

这是张信哲在事业的顶峰时期推出的一张口碑很好的专辑!用情这首歌充分的发挥阿哲的唱功优质。阿哲在歌曲里呐喊心中的痛楚和无奈。歌曲中哭诉失去珍贵的人,回想起过去的点点滴滴。

9)别怕我伤心

音乐大师李宗盛的作品,打造了情歌王子张信哲。我觉得阿哲是幸运的,因为他碰到了适合自己曲风的歌曲。张信哲清澈温软的声音配上李宗盛的作品可说是天衣无缝的组合。


10) 回来

我喜欢这首歌的歌词尤其是最后一句- 你的心回不去了,对不对,不能去怪谁,最后只能掉眼泪。感觉这个男人好可怜,很想好好安慰他。阿哲唱出了令人心疼的感觉。

阿哲因为唱这首歌时,穿着白色上衣,就如我心墓中的白马王子出现在眼前。歌曲动人,旋律优美,歌词意境美,MV把阿哲拍的很帅气。真是无可挑剔的好歌!

我是歌手第四季评论


我是歌手已经录制第七集了。你是否有任何意见想分享给大家呢?我儿时的偶像张信哲也来参加比赛,更为节目增添许多色彩!然而,这些歌手的表现又如何呢?目前成绩让许多网友表示大跌眼镜的淘汰赛。峰回路转的竞赛,谁将有机会获得今年的歌王或是歌后呢?这成绩,即将要揭晓,请各位拭目以待!如果你有任何意见,或是预测谁是歌王,请在这里留言。现在让我们回顾歌手们这几期的表现。


情歌王子张信哲

优点:歌声如水晶一般清澈,干净,舒服。充满磁性的声音,带来一丝温暖,也带来了淡淡的忧伤。这就是富有天籁之音的情歌王子张信哲。

缺点:因为声音的限制,似乎无法尝试更多曲风的音乐像摇滚乐这一类型。

张信哲出场时演唱的信仰,虽然听得出声音沙哑,但是凭多年的演唱经验还是顺利的把歌唱完。谦虚的阿哲表示能得到亚军多数是因为情怀。当我看见张信哲含着泪水,费劲千辛万苦把歌唱完,心里好感动。台下观众也一致为他鼓掌,替他加油,我心里也十分佩服这位优秀又专业的歌手。

可是过后的演唱却名列靠后!为什么情歌王子张信哲的成绩不理想呢?或多或少是因为自己逐渐恢复的身体状况欠佳,所以选歌受到限制。这几场比赛阿哲还是运用自己擅长的哲式情歌、但也看出他想突破自己的决心。张信哲说不想消耗情怀这个东西,毕竟自己是活在当下的歌手。

第五期阿哲演唱陈升的二十年前。这首歌曲我没听过,可以说是首冷门的歌。我喜欢阿哲用英语表现歌曲的意境多过用华语表达。第六期,阿哲把爱的箴言唱得丝丝入骨。情感和技巧都是发挥得淋漓尽致,却排名靠后?第七期,阿哲演唱的微光好像摇篮曲般舒服。编曲和演唱方式都和原唱者有所不同。为何成绩依旧没弹回到前几名呢?阿哲的唱歌功力退步了吗?许多人把阿哲的风格和第三季的歌手李建相比。我认为他们虽然风格相同但是我觉得他和阿哲就是无法比较,因为全世界只有一个张信哲。我想阿哲演唱的歌曲或许太单一了,现在的观众们更希望听到的是歌手们每次带来的新鲜感和惊喜。


粤语歌王李克勤

优点:浑厚的嗓音,技巧。现场演唱功力了得,声音稳定。

缺点:他多数唱粤语歌,而且比唱华语歌好

李克勤的排名起起伏伏,没有特别好也没有特别差的演绎歌曲。这就是李克勤!他的声音稳健,气场十足。特别喜欢他演唱拿手的粤语歌曲。


月光女神李玟

优点:国际天后的光环,霸气的舞台表演。劲歌热舞都难不倒她!  

缺点:由于之前声带受伤,必须调养身体,因此要一直保持最佳状态真的是不容易

李玟的成绩时高时低,多半是因为选歌的关系。天后就是任性,选择自己喜欢的歌来唱,但是没有考虑到大众能否接受她如此玩音乐。一首"Nobody"成功虏获大家的支持,又再度回到冠军的位置。李玟每一次出场都像在开演唱会一样热闹。


韩国小鲜肉黄致列

优点:外貌英俊,声音浑厚,沙哑又性感。

缺点:演唱歌曲时运用许多哭腔,让人觉得油腻又厌烦

黄致列的表现目前为止都不错。面对全部都是华语歌手,压力一定很大吧!幸好之前有"The One"作为开路者,让接下来的韩国歌手顺利进入中国市场。黄致列直到目前为止给我印象最深的是"Bang,bang,bang!" 这也没什么特别的,但是这首单曲让我看见了黄致列的另一面。韩流来袭亚洲,可见威力无比强大!


创作才女徐佳莹

优点:拥有清亮,甜美的歌声,新一代创作型歌手。

缺点:她是演绎经验最不足的参赛者。

我喜欢徐佳莹的甜美歌声,她在比赛中也获得不错的成绩。只要是徐佳莹演唱的歌曲都有自己独特的味道。比如说大家熟悉的歌曲不痛,徐佳莹就能把它当成自己的歌唱。


香港天后容祖儿

优点:强而有力的演唱风格,拥有大将之风,光芒四射。

缺点:粤语歌可能更能表达。演唱华语歌或许有一些发音的难度,造成选歌的困扰。

补位歌手容祖儿架势十足,把李克勤的夜半小夜曲唱得太好了!观众都能被她的歌声感染,陷入歌曲的意境里,久久无法释怀。


低音王子王晰

优点:低音浑厚,嗓子优美

缺点:缺乏经验,容易造成选歌的问题。

以第一个踢馆成功的歌手来说,王晰确实令人惊艳。歌手们都纷纷表示王晰的声音独特,有魅力。第一次得第一,过后跌到了最后一名。观众的口味真是难以琢磨啊!


续关喆和Haya乐团后,信和赵传也纷纷被淘汰了!我个人认为前者是因为没有什么观众缘,实力也不足所以必须多多修炼。信很努力突破自己,却始终无法晋级到决赛。一把年纪的赵传演唱太直了,没有太多的技巧,功力大不如前,被淘汰也是迟早的事。


这龙争虎斗的竞赛究竟奖项花落谁家呢?大家的预测会是什么呢?按以往的惯例冠军是否落在老将 李玟,李克勤,容祖儿或是张信哲的手中呢?又或者是芒果台尝试突破新格局,把奖项颁给外国人(黄致列),或是创作歌手(徐佳莹)呢?

During the next 15 days, Hye-Joong has to find what she lost. If she succeeds her nightmares will stop, otherwise everybody will die. 

Recap

The story begins with Hye-Joong having nightmares which seem to threaten her life. Her mother is worried about her daughter but does not know how to help her. Desperate for help, she engaged the help of a spiritual medium. 


Recently, Hye-Joong suffers greatly from the Nightmare every night and there were signs of self destruction. Her mother sought help from the medium who advises her to solve the problem as soon as possible, or else Hye-Joong will meet death in time to come. The medium advice Hye-Joong to go to a place to solve the mystery behind her nightmares and resolve her problem.



Hye-Joong browse through the internet and saw a place where she intend to stay for a while. On the way to the house - Alice in the wonderland, she meets a young man. 


This handsome and charming young man is Hwan. He lead Hye-Joong to his house and there is another occupant, a young woman name Soo-Ryun awaits them at the house. Soo-Ryun look at Hye-joong with suspicious eyes. It is as though Hye-Joong and Hwan know each other long ago, as Hwan plays a guitar and sings a song to her. Soon, he falls asleep, while Hye-Joong look over at him. 


On the other hand, the medium is trying to find out what is the reason behind the nightmare. In order to resolve the problem, she needs to dig out the past with Hye-Joong mother. Meanwhile, Hye-joong is settling down in the house and she received a call from her mother who is worried about her safety. Knowing that her mother is worried about her well beings, Hye-Joong reassures her mother that she is fine and that she is determined to stay here. 


Soo-Ryun seem to have a special relationship with Hwan. She talks to Hwan secretly and takes care of him very well. The next day, Hye-Joong discovered a few scratches marks on the wall and wonder what it means as it seems familiar to her. 


Hwan sleeps beside Hye-Joong on the bed and look after her. However, he seems to be hiding something from Hye-Joong and protecting her at the same time. Hwan is tending the wound at his heart area as he showers in the bathroom. What are the secrets hidden in this house and these suspicious looks between the occupants?


Hwan becomes closer to Hye-joong and holds her fingers while he falls asleep. Hye-Joong begins to have some connections to the past as she recalls bits and pierces. Everything seems so confusing and only Hwan seem to be the only one that Hye-Joong can trust.   


Hye-Joong shares about her problems with Hwan who look over her with concern. He listens to her trying to fix the puzzles in her life. He advice her not to probe into the past anymore. 


They are talking about the rabbit, suddenly Hwan feels dizzy and uncomfortable. A mysterious woman carrying a cat can be seen from far away looking at them. Soo-Ryun immediately run to Hwan and help him back to the house.


While Hye-Joong mother and the medium is trying their best to dig the past and resolve the problem, Hye-Joong encounter another danger. Hwan rescue Hye-Joong and Soo-Ryun look at him in a painful manner. What is the secret between them?


Hwan rescue Hye-Joong from danger again when she walks into the room. Despite his injuries, he manage to move his fingers to close the door. It is very clear that Soo-Ryun intend to kill Hye-Joong. It is obvious that the three of them knew each other. However, Hye-Joong has lost part of her memories. Let the mysteries unfold!


A woman give Hye-Joong a protection sachet and ask her to keep it with her and it will help her to escape danger . Hye-Joong continue to stay in the house to investigate. She is attracted to a room and intend to open the door. While she place her hand on the door knot, Hwan pull her away and covers her mouth.



Hye-Joon suspects that Hwan knows what is happening in this house, he even knows when to protects her from danger. She demands to know what is happening but Hwan did not give her a direct answer. He said that he will continue to watch over her and Hye-Joong is upset that everyone is hiding some secret from her.


Hye-Joong knows that the only person she can trust and rely on Hwan. She stay close to him. Hwan look at her lovingly and reassure that everything will be fine. On the other hand, Soo-Ryun places a hand on Hwan heart and look at him sadly.


The spiritual medium seems to know something and uses her power to protect Hye-Joong. Every now and then, Hye-Joong life is threaten and she does not know anything at all. She continue to investigate, hoping to end her nightmares. 


Hwan and Hye-Joong relationship continue to progress as they spend more time with each other. Soo-Ryun look at Hwan with sadden eyes. We can pretty much guess that they share a special relationship. What exactly is their relationship? At this point, we can conclude that Hwan is a ghost and the three of them share a destiny. Something must have happened in this house and she is here to end everything. 


It is very clear that Hwan and Hye-Joon have fallen in love with each other. However, Hye-Joon is trying to avoid him. Hwan look at Hye-Joon longingly as she runs away from him. 


The woman leads Hye-Joong to the wilderness and point at the ground. Hye-Joon recalls that incident in the past when she was a little kid. She kneel over the ground and cry aloud. Hwan hug her from behind as the blood flows down his hand. The ground is where Hwan was buried when he was a baby. 


Hwan carries Hye-Joon into the room and lay next to her on the bed. Soo-Ryun look at Hwan helplessly as though she has many things to say. She simply cannot do anything to harm Hye-Joon while Hwan is around. 


The next day, Hwan open the wardrobe and inside are all white shirts? Yes, he changes into a white shirt again and the pair of socks were worn in a weird and funny way. 


Hwan continue to stay around Hye-Joon to protect her but his heart is bleeding! On the other hand, the medium and the mother go to a house and ask for a bundle from the family. What is that?


Soo-Ryun hand a cup of water to Hwan and talk to him tenderly, asking him why he chose to protect that person. What did Hye-Joong did to them that cause Soo-Ryun to harm her? It has to do with the little girl that holds a knife. Did she kill Hwan and the woman? what is their purpose? 


Hwan plead with Soo-Ryun not to harm Hye-Joong. However, the woman refuse to let it go after what she had done to them, she wants revenge. Hye-Joong looks at them and cried. The medium throw the bundle into the fire and hopes that everything will be resolve soon.


Hwan heart is bleeding, just like a knife stabbed into his heart. Why did this incident happen? How did Hwan and Hye-Joong know each other? Hwan has a soft spot for her and love her. 


Next, we have the two confess their feelings for each other and kisses on the lips and forehead. They are going to spend a romantic night with each other.


They kisses each other tenderly and hug lovingly. Okay, i get it! They are supposed to be in love with each other but when did it start to accelerate their puppy love into passionate love?


Hwan is hurting physically but he is still determined to stay by Hye-Joon side to protect her. That shower scene is to show Hong Jong Hyun buffed body and it does look good onscreen.

Review

Alice in the wonderland tries every genes from horror to romance and mysteries. However, the movie fails to achieve any of the above in the end. It is neither scary nor romantic enough to be categorize in any of these genes. The story line makes no sense that the baby is actually Hwan and he has a relationship with Hye-Joon. It is kind of gross, to love the girl that stab you at the heart. The fact that he dies as a baby is tragic enough, after that he is in love with the girl? What is the logic? Does it mean that he love the girl as a baby? I don't get the last scene where Hye-Joong, her father and baby Hwan is in the pram. What does it symbolize? They are lovers? or siblings? what is the writer trying to convey? I am kind of confuse along the way.

Hong Jong Hong is a eye candy and i totally love him as a model, but he lacks acting skills. Most of the time, his expression looks plain or robotic. There is really nothing much to comment on his acting since he portrays the same boring expressions every time. I find it hard to believe that Hwan and Hye-Joon love each other so much. All the while, they look like having crush on each other but not to the extend of passionate love. It is not convincing enough to say that they do love each other deeply. Jung Sung-Min is a good actress but she is only moderately good in this movie. Anyway, both of them may lack some chemistry as a couple, but they looking compatible in appearance wise. 

Despite some flaws, i do enjoy the movie as it keep its suspense till the end when everything was revealed. Although some of the parts lack logic and common sense, i like the way the movie is executed out. The truth was revealed a little at a time and we finally realize what is going on and the pace is just nice for us to follow the story. I would recommend this Korean movie to movie goers who enjoys watching good looking actor in the movie. Do not expect too much from a simple story, but the drama is enough to get you entertained. In addition, the camera captured the dreamy scenes very well. our flower boy Hong Jong Hyun look so dashing in the movie.
