[Recommendation] Oceans of Love 碧海情天

Oceans of Love 《碧海情天》 is among the top few dramas in my list that I would certainly recommend.<br>The story tells about a gang of bandits versus another group of people in the government.<br>Damian is one of the small potatoes in the gang of bandits. <br>However, there's something more to his background.. the story slowly unfolds and he finally finds his mother who is... <br>(please watch it on your own! I don't want to give spoilers!)<br><br><br>It's one of the rare times Damian can really tickle you on-screen. <br>Unlike many comical dramas which sometimes have only lame jokes and silly acting, Oceans of Love has a brilliant story-line, good acting and strong lines. <br>Most of the time, you are not laughing because one of the roles makes a joke, but more due to their funny expressions.;P<br><br><br><br><br><br>It is more so since Damian looks so serious all the time and gets you breaking when you see him making exaggerated expressions.<br>His role, Tian Yang (天养) is not the typical stupid character that makes you laugh only at his silly facial expressions. In contrast, he is extremely smart and street-wise. You'll really marvel at how he manages to trick bad guys.<br>There are also scenes which can make you cry<br>I'm writing a more detailed critique for this drama in our Magazine, anyone who's keen to do a write-up can also contact me.<br><a href="/discuz/viewthread.php?tid=290&amp;extra=page%3D1">/discuz/viewthread.php?tid=290&amp;extra=page%3D1</a><br>The purpose of this post is more for a recommendation and advertisement for our magazine.

It's probably difficult to get the DVD now, as mentioned previously, the online TTV store had closed.<br>Some Taiwan onlines stores may still sell it, but they hardly export overseas.<br>However, u may be able to get it at online auctions (please beware of copied versions though)<br>I think HK has got distributions rights as well.<br>&nbsp;The other way, again is to wait for TTV World (台视国际台) to re-broadcast (TV version is actually bettter than DVD, we found a few deleted scenes from the DVD!!)<br><br>Here's some photos of my dvd when I got it a couple of years back. Got a friend to help me get it : Lucky me!<br>I really like the design of the DVD. very unique. It's in the design of a book, but when u open it, it's actually holding the dvds in sleeves.<br>But whenever I had to take it out, I'll have to be real careful because it may scratch on the surface of the discs.<br>If there's ever chance you see this DVD, I think you've got to get it even if you might think the price is a little steep. (It was roughly 84USD excluding shipment)<br>But due to it's rarity and exquisite design, it's definitely worth the price. It's 53episodes, so if you calculate, that's actually less than 2USD per episode lah!<br><br><img src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f243/sharonpek/Forum%20Attachments/dvd1.jpg" border="0"><br><img src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f243/sharonpek/Forum%20Attachments/dvd2.jpg" border="0"><br><img src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f243/sharonpek/Forum%20Attachments/dvd3.jpg" border="0"><br><br><img src="http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f243/sharonpek/Forum%20Attachments/dvd5.jpg" border="0"><br><br>

TONG YE.. so beautiful.

i'm not a taiwanese series fan..but it changed my point of view when i watched this series,"ocean of Love"..coz ever since they started the trend of idol's drama,i'd stopped watching taiwanese series...Never did i imagined that Damian could potrayed such a cute lively character.Its really different from his usual serious acting..

Oceans of love is my all-time favourite drama! Tian yang is adorable,clever and charismatic. Tian yang never fail to make&nbsp;me laugh and his facial expressions are amazing! I never thought that Damian can act out such exaggerated facial expressions. I LOVE TIAN YANG! SUPER CUTE! DAMIAN IS AWESOME!!: : :

Hi, I'm a newbie here.

I love Damian's acting since I was young. Still remember that I cried a lot when watching the last episode of Yesterday's Glitter. Damian's sad and remorseful expression is just sooo heartbreaking.  

About his Taiwanese dramas, I watched some of them yearsss back. But I think I miss this Ocean of Love. Thanks for sharing. Will watch it when I have time.

These days, I am rewatching TTV's dramas: Huan Jun Ming Zhu, Chun Qu Chun You Hui,  江湖再見   'coz they're available in Youtube. Wow... so happy and nostalgic that I can  watch again Damian's young look. In fact, he's so charming in those dramas.... {:8_468:}
