Wu Xiu Bo, Liu Tao, Janine Chang for The Advisors Alliance

Interesting collaboration between these three actors! A new war drama, tentatively called The Advisors Alliance (or Great strategist Sima Yi 军师联盟), is in the making, this time focusing on the legacy left behind by general Sima Yi (Wu Xiu Bo), often portrayed as the rival and villain in the story against Zhuge Liang from the state of Shu Han during the Three Kingdoms period. He starts out as a timid scholar and slowly morphs into a conniving politician. TVB made a silly time-travel adaptation back in 2012 where Kenneth travels back in time with the name Szema Shun against Raymond Lam’s Zhuge Liang. I had a few laughs from that drama. Lol.

Mars: Tada, Kimi wo Aishiteru Episode 1 “Light.”

Finally got the chance to sit down and watch something. The new adaptation of popular Manga Mars! As you know from my earlier post, Taiwan made a version of their own with the winning combination of rawness and chemistry from Vic Zhou and Barbie Hsu in 2004, so my bar was already at a high place. This Mars is different; and whether it is a good difference remains to be seen.

First stills of Ryan Zheng Kai as the legendary Wong Fei Hung

This drama makes me nervous! Ryan Zheng, an actor without prior background in martial arts playing a role known for his impressive Shadowless kicks? *sweats bullets* On the upside, I love this genre and time period! My heart belongs to directors who can film convincing hand-to-hand combat scenes, which is criminally missing a lot these days on our small screen. Dicky Cheung comes to mind when it comes to such scenes. He’s light on his feet and makes action scenes look effortless. My favorites of those are Mr. Winner and Young Hero Fong Sai Yuk, of which I still have on Dvds! I guess I should be positive and hopefully Ryan will surprise us all?

Zhu Yi Long and Song Yi pair up in music-themed drama The Rhapsody Of A Summer Dream

Oh yes! YES! I’m on this ship! Song Yi (The Disguiser) and Zhu Yi Long (Xin Xiao Shi Yi Lang) are both signed up to headline a new novel adaptation of The Rhapsody Of A Summer Dream (夏梦狂诗曲 ) written by Jun Zi Yi Ze. Synopsis of the novel follows violinist genius (Song Yi) who lost both of her parents at a young age and lives to seek revenge. For the longest time, music was her life and she started out following the footsteps of her dad. But now, every time she closes her eyes, she remembers the pool of blood forming around his head, and only wants to wear black while performing. After a betrayal that costs her a limb, she disappears and reappears five years later under a new identity, armed with a talented violinist under her teaching. She begins her revenge plan by getting close to an old friend (Zhu Yi Long), second son of a large corporation, who has a talent in numbers and stock market. It looks like his family adopted her when she was younger and some jealousy emerged among the kids. I only skimmed through the novel so am still not sure about the latter details.

BUT SO EXCITED FOR SONG YI! She’s been taking lessons in violins. =D
