C-Drama Review : Remembering Li Chuan (遇见王沥川)

After years of anticipation, Remembering Li Chuan (遇见王沥川) is finally aired…. I was introduced to the translated novel version of this story, known as Li Chuan’s Past (沥川往事) by tinkerbellsan. And I got really hooked to the novel. Despite that it is pretty sad story with a good ending, I actually re-read the novel over 10 times from Li Chuan’s Past (沥川往事)

Thanks to Remembering Li Chuan Feature (Trailer and Book) posted by tranzgeek, I waited for days anticipating for the release of the drama. Several days after the post by tranzgeek sharing the airing date, imagine my happiness when Godfrey Gao also make the announcement on his Instagram.

The wait is finally over. I finally found the time to watch the drama and managed to complete 2 episodes today. So, I decided my share my thoughts on the drama since I know some of the people I personally know is waiting for my feedback on the drama before they decide if they would be watching this drama.

The drama started almost similar as how the story started. How Li Chuan and Xie Xiao Qiu met are different as the novel where both of them met outside a cafe where Xiao Qiu were working. And it is not the cafe that they met in the novel where Xiao Qiu was a waitress. In the drama, Li Chuan was with his brother, Ji Chuan whom had just arrived into Shanghai with the task given by their grandfather to takeover Li Chuan’s job in Shanghai and get him to return to Zurich.

Some misunderstanding resulted in Xiao Qiu being fired and that caused some disagreement between Xiao Qiu and Ji Chuan. What a wrong start to their acquaintance. Now I wonder how they are going to mend that when Li Chuan and Xiao Qiu got together?

Although there were some similarity in the drama against the novel in Episode 1 and Episode 2 of the drama, most of the story line were changed.

What I like about this drama and I certainly am going to watch this drama till the end is purely because of Godfrey Gao. His acting skills are indeed highly commendable.  Not to mentioned that, unlike most mainland C-Drama where the voices are dubbed, in Remembering Li Chuan (遇见王沥川), Godfrey Gao character were not dubbed. I am not sure about the other characters in the drama as most of them are unknown artistes to me though.

I would not be writing about recap about the drama as writing recap is really not my forte. I would rather continue with translation of the novels that I am currently working on with the time I have instead. So, if you want to know more about the drama and how it ended, I would definitely recommend to watch the drama. I might (depending on the ending and mood), do the ending opinion sharing once I am done with the drama. That is to be decided at a later stage.

The episodes are available from youtube – Remembering Li Chuan (遇见王沥川).

I am so in love with the OST of this drama (even before I started watching the drama, I had already been listening to the OST). For those who had known me personally would know how much I love music. My favourite Remembering Li Chuan OST can be found here: Start Over || Remembering Lichuan – 遇见王沥川

For those who are interested in reading the novel, the RAW are available at Li Chuan’s Past (沥川往事) – Xuan Yin (玄隐)
