i’ve always had qualms watching chinese musical or play because of the language. Not that i do not understand or dislike the language, but for some reason, some things when expressed in mandarin just doesn’t feel right. i love you or i miss you are the most natural things to say when in English, but when expressed in mandarin, it makes one feel uncomfortable, i can’t explain why.
Nonetheless, i watched my first chinese musical, If There’re Seasons, on Saturday and it’s great! So go watch it if you haven’t.
The name of the musical 天冷就回来 literally translates to Come back home when the weather turns chilly, there is a sense of beautiful sadness and warmth in it. However, the current English title If There’re Seasons just doesn’t have the same impact.
