Re: TW idol drama Godfather in Pink/Pink Godfather Xiao Tian Tian/Sweety the Godfather


*sigh*

I watched it a couple more times... even wrestled with my 漢字 dictionary (and hoped the meanings haven't changed)... but I don't really know. The best I can do is post pics of the subs after he gets all mad emoticon(hoping someone can help us out here)...

Re: TW idol drama Godfather in Pink/Pink Godfather Xiao Tian Tian/Sweety the Godfather


Triple Lei, I can help you!


01 Ji Ran Ni Bu Ze Dao

Since you don't know.....

02 Dieh Jo Min Bai Gao Su Ni

Dad will spell it out for you (Dad will clearly tell you)

03 Ru Yu Shi Wo Men Yao Song Dao....

Ru-Yu is someone we plan to send/deliver/gift to....

04 Zuo Suei Ban Ban Zu Gao Da Peng De Jia Li

Zuo-Suei Gang's Gang Leader, Gao Da-Peng's home/family

05 Shei dou bu nen peng ta

Nobody can touch her

06 Tsong Jin Yi Hou

From today onward (after today)

----------------
Even though I understood every word they said, I'm still very confused. (perhaps KSCI edited some scenes out?!)

I'm not sure whether Ru-Yu was meant as a gift to Gao Da-Peng from the Shen-Yin Gang or Gao Da-Peng likes Ru-Yu so the Shen-Yin Gang decided to find her and give her to Gao Da-Peng. In any case, she was in their custody and if she is "taken away" by the son, the Shen-Yin Gang would be breaking some sort of promise to the Zuo-Suei Gang.

Do you all seriously enjoy this TV drama? The acting is bad and the plot is unveiled narrated by actors (but we see the narrated scenes acted out).

There are times I can't really make myself to watch it. Does it get better?

None of my Taiwanese friends can sit through it. Maybe we are too old for this?!

It does bring back fond memories for me when the girls sang the cartoon theme song from Xiao Tian Tian. As I remembered, it was probably around 1974-1975 that Taiwan started to air the first cartoon installment of Xiao Tian Tian.

The woman who plays Ru-Yu also was in Secret Garden 1. She was the older sister who tortured her husband with her behavior and who eventually divorced him.

I can't believe the actor Chang Fu-Jien, the guy who plays the dead grandpa, is doing this part. Boy, either he finds this role a big challenge or he must really need the $$ to play this part. He was such a serious actor before. He used to be in every important primetime dramatic serials put out by CTS.

Does this show get any better?

well, the series will get more serious once Xiao Ting finds out Xiao Man and her are falling for the same guy Jiang Long, but I guess everyone has different tastes...from having my friend translate the subs for me, I've actually enjoyed the series much more than I had when I originally watched it.

The main mystery is the mystery behind Xiong Tian's father's death, which is what drives all these events, rather so than the mystery of who's Xiao Tian's father and mother...but I wonder if the death is related to the Gao family not receiving Ru Yu.

from Guojing at the spcnet.tv forum:

This is an interesting Taiwanese drama with a very cute "girlie" soundtrack. The opening theme song is a fantastic rap with a very cute girl part in the middle of it, making it clear to all of us not to take this drama too seriously.

I felt 100% Senorita was disappointing because I felt that a good drama must have a 100% villian, one that is pure evil.

Well, this new drama is worse than Senorita because the villians are shown making goofy mistakes and turning good guys almost immedietly haha. That part when Xiong Tian was confused when his subordinates told him they are going to "Not Xiao Lee Fei Dao KTV" and the part when the other villian panic when Xiao Man led a crowd to protest against their pornograhy were 2 funniest scenes to me haha.

But I dun mind, unlike Senorita, because it never gave me the wrong first impression haha. It is quite enjoyable hearing the usual Hokkien parts and the 2 very adorable female actresses, Xiao Ting and Xiao Man. Xiao Man is definitely so adorable, plus she speaks Mandarin so clearly and refinely.

Taiwanese dramas are really different from HK ones hehe. U dun often see goofy villians in the latter.

 emoticon Hey, this drama is all about the fun-ness of fun! Seems to have much more 'meat' to each episode (with the possible exception of Friday's). Sans incest.

Or maybe I should just read the synopsis already.

Like merela had said previously, the storyline was basically given away right at the beginning...well except for Xiong Tian's father's murder (but even the officials had suspicions too)

Xiao Ting is really the grand-daughter of the Godfather. She knows it too and refused to switch places with Xiao Man (as we can see from today's episode). Both Xiao Ting and Xiao Man are fans of the Xiao Tian Tian cartoons. The girls like to act out the scenes from the Xiao Tian Tian cartoons when they were growing up (and still do). Xiao Ting pretends to be Xiao Tian Tian (small sweetie) and Xiao Man pretends to be Annie, Xiao Tian Tian's sidekick.

There are not a lot of surprises in this show.

It is always funny to see a bunch of guys in this show speaking terrible Chinese (and much better English). They are either graduates of the Taipei American School or they are ABCs. It is hard to sit through poorly spoken dialogue. Poor diction doesn't make up for good acting. So no matter how good these actors are, it's still laughable to see them say their lines. Maybe that's why the casting directors use them. The show is suppose to be funny.
