Saya is here for a Wild Yak to convince Paroma to watch 2020 Chinese drama CROSSFIRE, about two young men who meet each other in a game - but are eleven years apart in time. A spoiler-free intro to the show. PS. Saya really, really loved it.
We talk about:
The Signal conceit
The rise of pro-gaming
Gaming dramas as an emerging genre in C-dramas
The trials of watching dramas in a totally unfamiliar language with horrible subtitles
Side discussions on: dealing with addictions, C-drama Sweet Combat, actors Luhan and Leo Wu, and...peg legs and parrots.
