Christmas Countdown 2019 – Day 2
Are you in the holiday spirit or down in the dumps dreading the upcoming festivities? I am a weird mix of in-between feelings, lol.
The Untamed I think was one of the only dramas I managed to finish this year. That, 2Moons2 and Extraordinary You. Not sure I managed to finish any others than those…I started a bunch of dramas, though.
Anyways, The Untamed was just that magic drama that I had to keep watching. Wang Yibo and Xiao Zhan were an awesome pairing and did well with their characters. Xiao Zhan’s emotional portrayals were particularly stirring and Yibo did excellent with his straight face displaying subtle undertones. He wasn’t necessarily perfect 100% of the time, but they both did awesome jobs.
Of course any overtly romantic scenes between Wei Ying and Lan Zhan were cut out of the drama script that existed in the novel as we are all familiar with China’s censorship by now. Even so, they still expressed a very lovely and close relationship between the two.
Besides being a great drama, there was great music to be had! My favorite is the duet version of “Wu Ji” [无羁] sang by Xiao Zhan and Wang Yibo. It’s lyrics perfectly highlight their story and Xiao Zhan did a great job of infusing the song with emotions. Xiao Zhan sings the majority of the song, but does trade lines with Wang Yibo.
The character song were also all amazing and fans translated pretty much all of them on Tencent’s or WeTV’s official videos.
So on the second day of Christmas, my gift to you is The Untamed OST and character songs. Ok…really just the character songs. I didn’t dig up all the instrumentals, but trust me, they are exquisite, too!
Which soundtracks caught your attention this year?
