I just finished Your Secret: 



It is not bad at all and the actors are quite easy to understand. As with all Chinese dramas, they should have stopped after episode 15 or so, but since the whole drama covers at least 3 different "crime cases", you can just stop if you get bored.

yo guys this is for any Terrace House fans (or someone wanting a slow paced reality show that uses every day language).


It's called Shanghai Share House (同一屋檐下). I know there has been a couple other Chinese copycats but this one is an official partnership with FujiTV that made the original Japanese Terrace House and IMO its better than most of the Japanese seasons. I watched if before I really got into learning chinese proper but I feel like its a good show for learners. Especially since there are certain types of conversations that repeat through-out the series whenever a new house mate joins.


Anyways here is a link and its been fan subbed if you want the english translation - Amara – Award-winning Subtitle Editor and Enterprise Offerings. Its also on the Youku youtube channel if you have no need for the english subs

I just watched a censored GL drama on YouTube called Couple of Mirrors or 双镜


I've just finished watching this, it was fun, despite the silliness of the plot. Some of the long pauses and lingering looks didn't make complete sense until I went back and googled what @amytheorangutan meant by "censored GL drama" and it became a bit clearer!

Mainly just really love the couple

The one with the guns is pretty good at the "uhm this is highly awkward" facial expressions.


OK what next? Given I also started but gave up on the Longest Day in Chang'An because it was too slow, I'll follow you in giving 《 沉默的真相》 a go.
