Right from when I was a kid and I would be semi-permanently lodged in front of my television watching Tribulations of the Mu Clan, Chinese dramas have always been a haven.
That’s to say, I turn to Chinese dramas when I need a pick-me-up, and they never, never fail – except on the rare occasion that I pick a particularly sorrowful drama with a sad ending.
