Material Queen Full Trailer/Preview + Behind the Scenes + Interviews (25 min version)
拜金女王搶先看

Enjoy!


I've been anticipating this drama since it started filming. I have faith in the Autumn's Concerto production crew! Based on the 25 min trailer, the drama seems very interesting! Lots of pretty clothes and scenery! However Vanness and Lynn look very ackward in their kissing scenes cuz Lynn is sooo tall!

Haven't gotten around to seeing this (surprised it actually airs on Friday and not Sunday o.O). Loving the theme song from Van Ness, can't say the same for having Lynn as the female lead though :innocent.

I don't like the french narration in the first 10 mins of this episode. I don't know if I am going to continue to watch the drama.

Just finished watching...the best thing about it so far....the opening theme song sung by Vanness. I really liked the song. The rest of it....I am waiting on to pick up. I will not give up yet, but honestly, I feel like I need to see something a little more loveable about the main girl before I can really buy into the story. So far...just okay.

I really like the themesong, but the first episode was hard for me to sit through, don't really like the France atmosphere. Will continue to watch it to see how the story line flows

Here's some reviews of Material Queen by bloggers. It's in English. Quite a lot of ppl find it very unique, not the standard Taiwan idol drama formula. :

vanness wu with that kind of glasses,, he looks so cute. i'm gonna watch this drama after i watch LKG. This seem to be interesting because it is unique not the typical idol drama that we can see plus i will look forward to fashion styles. hehe. and the director is also the director from Autumn's Concerto so i'm rest assured with the quality of the drama. honestly, with just vanness alone in the drama, i'll watch it. haha because of him

It's basically about a model with a material queen character fell in love with a poor music student and how they both caused troubles for each other while in Paris. After returning to Taiwan, they ended up living under the same roof again and so there goes fate...

I actually LOVE this drama! And I adore the main actress too- she's not your typical weak, goody-goody sweet girl. And I know everyone says she's too tall, but that's her character- she's a model. The scenes and clothing in this drama are amazing, and I really love the storyline. And yea, there's a 10-min section at the very beginning that's narrated in french, and in an almost fairy-tale kind of way, that many people find odd, but I thought it was quite interesting.. maybe that's just me. I don't get why there aren't many fans, but this is one of the best dramas I've watched just because of how unique and deep it is.

== Wow...the TV channel is so 'whatever' with the chinese subs. They didn't even translate the French dialogues correctly in some cases == Just randomly writing some chinese that would fit the situation instead of what they're acutally saying ==" HORRIBLE.

This drama ROCKS.....a very new story line and the leading lady is good. At first I didn't expect much from Lynn but she really can do it.

The fashion is so nice to watch too. Besides Vanness and Lynn, there is Daniel (his 1st taiwan idol drama) his character is a rich man who fall for Lynn. Plus the bunch of supporting character of Vanness's family in Chao Nan market was toooo cool.

Lynn character of being so spoilt, gold digger, selfish and mean are for a reason. She will return to good path after spending time with Vanness and his family.

It's airing episode 7 now...hope more people will try this drama.

hm dont know the lead actress but Vanness Wu...i guess he is carrying this drama..i think either this isnt the vehicle or he isnt quite ready to solo carry a drama with his acting chops. the plot doesnt seem to resonate with alot of folks from what i've read..like him in Meteor Garden.. but again ensemble cast....

You are right if it is based on the ratings so far.

Along with Channel X, it is one of the two weakest dramas on Taiwanese TV this year so far.

^ So sad, this is such a good drama. I don't know why the ratings started off so low and never picked up. :( I guess it's not your typical Taiwanese idol drama, but the cast and the plot are all pretty good. Lynn Hung's acting is actually better than Vanness's -- he's not bad here, but it can't compare with the chemistry he had with Ady in Autumn's Concerto.

The story line of this seriees is good but there are some parts that make me give this a bad rating.When chu man was sick and had to film the commercial i thought it was going to be a romnatic scene where he carry her out of the water but noooooo he jumps in the water and tell her to get out of the water <_< then there is that whole weird ass relationship between terry and chu man. He is not evil enough he is like the nicest evil person i ever seen!!! and finally the part where jia hao's sister trip at the fashion show was such a bad dramatic scene!!! buuuut i will keep on watching because of vanness :yeah and hope the series will get better

I'm up to episode 9 now. I won't ruin it...but i thought it was my favorite episode so far. At first i REALLY disliked Lin Chu Man and the actress who played her, but now...I think she's perfect for the role. This episode really turned my opinion of her around. The only problem is actually I feel like the chemistry between the two main leads is just okay. Not so terrible it's unwatchable...but for some reason, i don't believe the love scenes. I actually believe the love scenes between Kai Ming for Lin Chu Man more than the one between Lin Chu Man and Cai Jia Hao.

I have to say though...the storyline and character development is very interesting and I love that this story is so new and fresh. It's not like the other Taiwanese dramas out there. It is visually beautiful and the texture and tone of it is very well done. The music is good, and the storyline is for the first time...not cliche. I love the plot and everything about this drama actually...except the chemistry between the leads.

I dont know why the ratings for this show is so bad. It's SOOOO good. Vanness' acting is mediocre alright but lynn is good. and the story is well paced.

Hi I am new here!! But I just had to post in this thread because I want to scream how great this show is. I haven't been this addicted to a show since Fated to love you and Autumn's concerto.

I wish it would it get more praise...I think it is horrible that it is showing on a friday night when most people are out and about. Everyone just needs to get passed the 1st episode. I love how it is not a traditional drama and Vanness is in it and I actually like the main female lead!!

Btw does anyone have any spoilers for the last 8 episodes??? I believe there is going to be 20 episodes.

This drama is sooo good, it's on par with Autumn's Concerto in my opinion. Finally a female role where the female lead isn't innocent, hardworking and works towards melting the heart of the male lead. It's a shame that this drama doesn't get as much recognition as it should, it's such a great show.

I know poor Chu Man.. Lynn is doing such a great job and I love how the female lead is so different from the sweet innocent types(mind you i am watching with out subtitles since i am impatient, if anyone can tell me what happened in episode 13 that would be great and what is said in preview for episode 14).. this is by far my favorite drama out of the others I have seen and I wish more people would watch it!

Slowly watching this series... finally resuming it after a long break. Still quite behind, but oh well, since it's not finished yet ^_^
I think the show is actually quite good too and there's lots of potential to it. So sad that it's not very popular in ratings OR in discussion :unsure:
