Introducing TocAsiaTic’s recaps of Mr. Right

My friend Littleangele recently started her own blog on Asian entertainment, tocasiatic.wordpress.com. When we’re talking about Asian entertainment, Korean dramas are still most talked about on the net. In order to help Chinese dramas come to the fore, she decided to try her hand at writing recaps of Chinese dramas, and the first drama she chose to recap is the currently airing mega hit Mr. Right!
Although she’s French and her blog is thus in French as well, she also translated her recaps of the first two episodes of Mr. Right into English to give more people the chance to read them. Please comment on her post and let her know what you think about her recaps. And encourage her to continue if you’d like to read more recaps of hers in the future! 🙂
