About Me

Sevenses is your average friendly Asian girl who loves to distract herself from her studies by watching dramas. Sevenses can usually be found curled up on the sofa, reading fiction to her heartโ€™s content. She likes all sorts of dogs, except the small yappy kind, because even as a dog lover, she has standards.

Her taste in music is best described as eclectic, and her favourite composers/artists range from Chopin to Barber (reverse alphabets ftw!) to Jay Chou to Vienna Teng. Music moves her very easily, and if asked about Titanic, she will absolutely deny crying at the end.

She likes talking about herself in the third person and eating. Sevenses also wishes you a happy visit and many bushels of yummy cheese.

    After reading your “about me” page, it seems we have a lot in common. Watching Asian dramas is also my favorite way to procrastinate from studying. And from your reference to dorsal ganglia cells, am I correct in assuming you’re in some sort of health profession? Me too. I’m in pharmacy school. My taste in music is also eclectic, and my favorite cheese is sharp cheddar. ‘Sorry if I’m a bit random. I just wanted to say Hi.

    Hey, not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I just need a quick little translation chinese>english, pleez?
    These are messages that show sometimes up on Tudou, so I uploaded caps:

    I’d like to know what they mean. Thank you in advance!

    That’s okay. My site doesn’t have annihilation capabilities like yours does when people comment on the wrong page.

    The first one says: This allows you to drag the play cursor to anyplace on the bar. (Drag anywhere on the bar thing and it starts playing there. Very useful.)

    The second one says: Your upload speed is too slow, try downloading Tudou download accelerator! (The most useless and annoying message when you’re trying to watch your favourite show.)

    My site has annihilation capabilities ? Really?

    And thank you so very much with the translation!

    People tend to leave their requests in comments in random topics. Do not do that. You could die! (^_^)?

    It is totally annihilation-capable.

    Ah, yeah, I came up with that, but it isn’t really respected. I mean it’s like for ciggies, it’s written “very dangerous for your health” “smokers die”, but they buy it anyway.

    Flyingcrispi, if you are using Tudou, do not download their accelerator, it does nothing for their videos. But I have figured a way around their beyond snail speed…open up 2 epi.s at once in 2 separate internet portals. Example, load ep. 2, (you must copy and paste to 2nd Internet portal), then click on ep. 1 to load this. Do something else for a little bit, and viola, both video should have completed loading. Tudou also has memory, so even if you close it off, and go on the next day, the loaded movie is ready to be watch without needing to load again.

    RE: Tudou

    Sometimes streaming is slow, but downloading it is faster.

    Go to http://www.flvcd.com/ and enter in the URL. Then you can download the file directory ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great blog—just read your recap on Javabeans’ site!

    Hi, I am writing to thank you for your detailed recaps – they are like no other! I am quite new to asian dramas, but I hope to learn and watch a lot more!

    i just have to ask:
    “are you singaporean?”

  12. Monday, September 1, 2008 at 11:06 pm

    you should have added some sweet talk before asking (so rudely) like you know – thank you sevenses for your cool cool recaps, like how everyone does.

  13. Tuesday, September 2, 2008 at 8:43 pm

    Linsha – Nope. Keep guessing. ๐Ÿ˜€

    (Aww, jezar, that was sweet of you… but it’s okay, she wasn’t rude, just blunt. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    Hi Sevenses, have been quite a follower of your wonderful recaps over at Dramabeans. I really must thank you for those detailed and engaging recaps. Like linsha, i’d thought you are Singaporean too! (Well, at least i am. Haha.) Hmmm i’m rather bad at guessing… Malaysian perhaps?

    Wow Sevenses you’re one interesting person haha
    I was curious, are you half korean half chinese, seeing as you are able to sub for both languages.

  18. sevenses
    Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 6:23 pm

    ^ Nah, I’m Chinese. The reason I can even recap Korean shows is because the Chinese subbers are super fast.

    I believe it’s somebody’s birthday today, so happy birthday to the more-than-average friendly Asian girl! I must however point out some inaccuracies in this ‘About Me’ post, particularly some observational evidence to disprove the inversely proportional relationship between the aforementioned subject’s time spent watching dramas and the level of academic excellence achieved and maintained. See you in class next year!

  21. Thursday, January 1, 2009 at 10:25 pm

    oooh happy belated birthday sevenses(:

    Hello Sevenses… to start off… thank you very much for your recap on Frozen Flower… I have been wanting to know what others (mainly persons who watched and understood the background and korean as I can’t LOL) do a review on it! I was sooo excited to see it over at dramabeans. I think I’ve read plenty of your recaps and thoughts and reviews and its quite uniquely interesting and entertaining… as I am Asian but speak non of the language in the Asian dramas/movies… i look forward to befriending and your future work.

    I love your intro abt urself…I haven’t tried something cool like that but sorry to blab so much… I am off now… to browse ur blog since its my first time here… glad to have found it… by chance r u watching…’ swallow of sun’ ‘friend… our legend’ ‘dream’ by chance u recap on chinese/taiwanese drama/mov]ie too??? I am in need of recaps/reviews. if not, do u have any blogs u can refer me too???

    Happy Day!

    You know, you are awesome.

    As an asian to a fellow asian, I commend you on your efforts of asianness.

    Wait… does that even make sense? Anyway, I just love what you’re doing with the recaps and the downloads. It makes my inner asian pride go ballistic. By the by, how do you locate the patience to recap? I attempted to once, but… yeah… (it didn’t really work out).

    I’m watching Iljimae at the moment, and am forcing myself not to read the rest of your brilliant, awe-spiring, absolutely wonderfulistic recaps (can you feel my praise showering? Oh, you can? Dang! I thought I was being subtle). There are many loopholes which you have very cleverly and sarcastically outlined (ah, sarcasm, my other friend). LJK is so pretteh (you have doomed me. I am cursed to use that word for the remainder of my life) so as do you, I overlook the holes.

    Man, you’ve watched a lot of stuff! You are so awesome (I use that word waay too much) in that you are versatile. You don’t just stick to Jdramas or Kdramas or TWdramas, but all of them. AND you integrate with western stuff too! That’s just being a great asian all around. So, you win my ‘Great Asian All Around’ award.

    You watch Gossip Girl? The wait is over. It’s back this Monday. I’m not that excited to see it, actually. And that saddens me. I used to love it wholeheartedly. But that was all the Chuck/Blair angst and hate which drew me. Now that they’re together I just feel… blah. And Serenate does not excite me in the slightest.

    Well, this is getting long-winded and boring. You probably haven’t even the time to read and digest this anyway. But, I feel like I’ve found a friend in you. Let us venture proudly into the wild unknown with our heads held high with asian pride!!

    (yeah, that creeped me out too).

    ‘Til we meet again!

    Just wanna drop by and say thanks. I was reading your post on Hong Gil Dong (back in 2008) for the past few days and cant help to admit that you did a really good job in telling the plots, their conversation. Your comments rocks and it was so hillarious that I was laughing out loud at 3am. Hope you are doing well in your university life and keep up the good work.

    I really love ur reviews. They r funny and sarcastic and point out the plotholes that i don’t notice. Ur parody of A Frozen Flower made me giggle insanely. XD

  36. Monday, October 25, 2010 at 10:39 pm

    Hi Sevenses,
    How u been? Do you know where can I watch Dream of Red Chamber with English subs? Or if you have any good ORIGINAL WuXia dramas to recommend? I kind of got sick of the 10th version of the same WuXia dramas. Need some good WuXia!!!xD

  37. Hope
    Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 12:34 am

    Where are you? Where are your Merlin recaps? Please be alive!

    I like the way you think and the way you write. Can you recommend a good French book to read in French for our French reading group? It would help everyone if the selection is short and is accompanied by a movie.
