Technically, More Than Blue: The Series (Netflix) is a small screen adaptation of two different films.
More than blue itself, the 2018 Taiwanese film is a retelling of the 2009 Korean film of the same name. K and Cream are two beautiful dreamers who fell in love with the song. Life is full of bent eggs. In the end, there is reason to translate the Korean film’s name as “a sadder story than a sad one”.
“In theory, exercise produces endorphins. “Anyway, says Chang Che-kai (Fandy Feng), but all the sprinting down the track at his high school won’t make the pain go away. You temporarily forget the unpleasant things.
When we meet him, Chang Che-kai is a high school graduate. And while he was studying for his college entrance exams, Kai was filled with emotions instead. His father, who had leukaemia, closed his favourite record store. There’s not enough money to go out for a walk. His mother is barely in the picture, and Kai’s grades drop. However, there is one positive aspect, and that is Sung Yuan-Yuan (Gingal Wang). Chang Che-kai becomes Kay, a musician, while Sung Yuan-yuan is known as Cream, a songwriter, and the two soulmates make beautiful music together. But before we dive into everything you might already know, if you’ve seen the film version of More Than Blue, we need to find a plot that tells a miniature version of the story of K and Cream on screen.
During a controversial meeting at E-Shine Records:
The singer A-Lin accuses the label’s executive director Wang Po-Han (Po-Chieh Wang), of not hearing anything. Her assistant, An Yi-Chi (Yu-Wei Shao), says he encourages her. Browse all unsolicited E-Shine playback. When A-Lin recorded a lovely and sad ballad, it became a song written and sung by K and Cream. It was perfect for an A-Lin album, but they needed release rights, and Poe knew that K had died of leukaemia three years earlier. As for Cream, there were only rumours about her existence. Po-Han and An Yi-Chi finally find Cindy Yu (Yi-Ti Yao), a photographer K has a personal relationship with. He goes beyond record label commitments when he walks into his studio and finds K’s diary.
So, immersed in K’s words, unfolds the story of a sad high school student, his ailing father, and a mischievous friend who saves his soul.
“True sadness is like a song,” Chang Che-kai wrote in his diary.
“It won’t make you sad in the first place. But the parts of the chorus are like ripples setting an unforgettable melody over and over again. And more than blue, this series is also a lot of setting, taking one thing that is sad and putting another on it until it becomes an insurmountable obstacle to developing grief.
His meteorological system out of grief you have to like him. He and Kai get into a car accident – they frantically look for a CD in the back seat – another driver dies, and Kai’s mistake worsens his condition. Children know that cancer genes run in families too. Kai’s thriving relationship with the funny and rebellious Sung Yuan-yuan is all a person needs and nothing he can have. They are reading in terms of music’s universal ability to catch the heartstrings, and More Than Blue will pull you in from the start.
More Than Blue consists of funny and sad stuff that romance lovers pay cash, or at least their monthly Netflix fee, to inject straight into their veins.
