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
This post will concentrate solely on Wallace Chung so don’t complain that I am biased 😛 The first 8 episodes have already been subbed in English so there is no point for me in summarizing them. Thus I’ll address some criticisms on the drama as well as some interesting observations. I welcome any constructive criticism but please don’t be too harsh on me and Wallace lol.

“A Lonesome Blossom” (一枝孤芳) is the closing theme song of General and I (孤芳不自賞). The song was first introduced to the world when Wallace performed it at Hunan TV’s 2017 New Year Countdown Gala. It is reported that Wallace worked alongside producer Chen Zhongyi to create a modern pop song with a tint of electronic music and rock music (a rare case for a historical period drama).
The song came out great and should have been the main theme song in my book (Peanuts is probably sick of me saying this ;P). I know a couple of people who wanted English subtitles for this song, so they’d better give a big “Thank you” to Haha’s professional translation or else she is going to have to charge us soon.

Wallace was busy filming Liang Sheng, Must We Be Sorrowful? in December. Due to the fact that December is a festive season and also the impending release of General & I, there were plenty of updates on Wallace which took me ages to compile but it was all worth it. Happy New Year to all Wallace’s fans from Chewywon and me. We look forward to watching his dramas together with all of you in 2017.
