What I Liked and Didn't Like About Meteor Garden II

Meteor Garden I was good but Meteor Garden II though as much as I liked it, I didn't like it as much.  

Here's what I like about it:

  1. Dao Ming Feng as the evil witch is given an extended part.  She's so important a villain to be given so less a role!  
  2. Dao Ming Si's character development.  At least in the end, he becomes more mature.
  3. More emphasis on Dao Ming Si-Hua Tze Lei love triangle is given.

Here are the weaker sides of the drama:

  1. Less confrontation between Shan Cai and Dao Ming Feng.  Shan Cai's weaker side is revealed, then again even every tough weed has a weakness.
  2. Yesha.  Yeesh.  I really didn't like her character even if I didn't want her to die or anything.  I just felt like she was getting in the way without knowing it. :P
  3. Also Ximen's father.  He reminds me of some of my character flaws.  Well the show got me to a certain point!
  4. Ge Wei Ru should have acted as Ximen's mom.  I think she looks too elegant to be a mistress, she should have been HIS MOM!
  5. The story was too long.  Seriously everybody should have focused on making more dramas instead of a sequel for Meteor Garden II!
  6. Xiao You has gone missing.  Oh crud.  Why oh why?
  7. Pace Wu's acting is so bad.  She's pretty, yes but that's just it.  But seriously Esther Liu is hotter than she is and a MUCH better actress, no offense.  
  8. The breakup of Lei and Jing.  Then again, Winnie Qian left due to some other reasons so it was pretty unavoidable.
  9. Not to mention EXTREMELY dragging for my taste for a regular soap opera.  Too many fillers in between too.


  1. u forgot to add Dao Ming Si's amnesia in the "weaker side" list...

    1. I didn't think Dao's amnesia was a weaker side to it.
