The month of February saw the ending of General & I as well as Wallace busy preparing for his next drama, Healing Love. Sometimes I do wish there was a no news month for him so that we can take a break 😛 A big thank you to Rensi for helping to compile and write some of the updates. A word of warning, don’t expect the updates of this month to be as detailed and comprehensive as January’s since I am busy and I am not Rensi 😛 I’ll try my best so if it is not up to your standards, don’t throw tomatoes at me 😛
CrystalT, Ironfingers, and anom,
Thank you for your patience. Here are the interview summaries you requested. I am sorry that one of the three videos was deleted twice when I worked on this post. It was the interview Wallace and Angelababy did in August, 2016 during General and I‘s filming days. I searched everywhere and found snippets of the interview in news articles and videos. I put that summary in the end. If you found the source again, please let me know.
Let’s round out our translated OST series for General and I with “Never Betray” by Zhou Pin. The song doesn’t get much air time, but it does pop up at the most crucial moments in the drama when Ping Ting and BeiJie are separated. It is probably the most soulful song depicting Bei Jie’s inner battle with his emotions.
So what’s your favorite OST from General and I thus far? Vote below and see if others also agree with you! Continue reading [ENG+PINYIN] 不负 Never Betray MV ( GENERAL AND I OST )
The big conflict in the romance department in General and I really occurred in episodes 13-16. PingTing finally lets her guard down and makes sure BeiJie knows how much she cares for him. However, their love is quickly put to the test and there’s one battle after another.

It’s another English OST translation for General and I sung by an up-and-coming singer, Fang Yuan. I really like her youthful voice. The song only pops up during sad scenes and has left a deep impression on the audiences. Try to listen to this song and you might even shed a “Tower of Tears” yourself.

The keywords of this month were unequivocally “General and I.” Wallace’s engrossing performance in this romantic ancient costume drama once again made him one of the most popular entertainers of the month on social media. He topped the Entertainer New Media Index in the Television Actors category by Vlinkage, an entertainment marketing service provider, on 13 days in January, and was among the top three on 23 days.
People watch dramas for different reasons. I watch dramas because most of the time I like the leads. No amount of bad press or bad reviews would sway me away. Now whether I finish them is another story. I do watch a lot of dramas. I just don’t finish them and often time I opted out to read recaps instead. The last drama I fully finished was (if you follow my post at all on this blog, you won’t be surprised) … that’s right, “My Sunshine.” That was like 2 years ago. So, you can be for sure that I’ll finish this one from beginning to end and it’s all ‘Thanks’ to Wallace. Don’t expect me to do the same for Wallace’s next 2 modern dramas as I don’t find the 2 leading actresses compatible with him. 😛 Continue reading General and I (Ep 9-12): Thoughts, Review, Caps, and Everything in between
