Magicians of Love

Or what I like to call, "It's crack!!!"

This is a Taiwanese "Idol" Drama about these super star hair stylists that can make any woman beautiful, hence the magicians part of the name.

It's called an Idol Drama because the main male cast are part of the boy band, 183 Club and the main female lead is also a pop singer, Joanne Zeng.

But anyway, this is a romantic comedy which has consumed my life for the last week. It was just so addicting to watch the interactions between all of the characters and just how cracked out all of the characters. Just look at how the hair dressers are dressed!

It starts out pretty comedic with a rivalry between an international "Western" salon and a mom and pop barber shop. The later episodes really deal with the love triangle and keeps bouncing back and forth between the two main stylists, "Artz" and "Richie" both with sordid pasts. Artz is a rich kid but has major family issues. Richie is an Hong Kong gangster trying to escape. The juggling act was very cool to watch. Fernando is more a side character, but his "persona" is that of the playboy and has a girl on his arm every other episode, which also causes lots of drama, which is what this show is all about! Take that 4chan. ;-)

You can check out the drama's opening sequence or hell, watch the first ep. ;-)

Interesting observations watching the show...Collapse )

Anyway, at least watch the intro of the first episode on YouTube, it's fully subtitled, watch the rest if you're interested. I don't know if the other episodes are online, but you can download them via torrent which is also subtitled. Or if all else fails, let me know and I'll burn a DVD of all the episodes and mail them to you.

Ok, back to work work not that I have my life back...
