[Drama Recap] First impressions: there will be no second dates with Qiao Zhenyu’s Psychologist 心理师 or Yang Le’s Hypnotist 被催眠的催眠师 (2017)

I’m sad to be writing this since I had high expectations for both dramas and really wanted to like them. Unfortunately though, it just didn’t work out. And, it’s actually unfair of me to group these two dramas together as The Hypnotist (被催眠的催眠师) is far superior to Psychologist (心理师) in terms of directing style, acting, cinematography, and the overall story in general. But, since I watched them both back-to-back yesterday and these were the two dramas I initially planned on recapping, it feels more appropriate for me to make one announcement instead of two.

In short, the verdict is I will not be writing recaps for either drama because they’re not my cup of tea. If you want to read the longer version of how I felt about the first episode of Qiao Zhenyu’s Psychologist and Yang Le’s Hypnotist though, then continue reading below!

[Drama Recap] First impressions: All About Secrets 秘果 (2017)

I checked out the web drama All about Secrets (秘果) on iQiyi today (all 24 episodes were released for VIP members on April 10th)! It’s not bad, and I’ll probably continue watching it, but I don’t think I will be doing recaps (since I need to finish Long for You).

Like most dramas, episode 1 was basically an introduction to the characters, laying down the foundation of what’s to come. And it should also be considered the most important episode, since viewers usually decide whether to watch episode 2 or drop it entirely based on the viewing experience of the first hour (sometimes I don’t even get that far). Forty-five minutes passed rather quickly for this drama and not much was really said, but I do find the characters likable enough!
