Endearing youth film At Cafe 6 with Dong Zi Jian, Cherry Ngan

From the team who created the widely popular You’re the Apple In My Eye, At Cafe 6 (六弄咖啡馆) is adapted from the novel written by Teng Jing Shu and hopes to follow the same success as its elder sibling with the same youthful folly and discovery of complicated feelings. I know I grumble a lot when they produce dozens of youth-themed movies every year, but I always fall for them when promotional materials roll out because everyone looks so darn cute! I’m weak to cuteness. xD Moreover, what is not to love when these rising new talents get a chance to flex their acting skills unabashedly?

Hooked!

Argentinian Drama Blind Date gets Chinese remake with Jiang Xin and Lu Yi

EEEEkk!! I’m so happy for Jiang Xin! Leading roles, come her way! Blind Date (盲约) is the Chinese adaptation of a widely popular Argentina drama, Blind Dates (Ciega a Citas), which is also based on a blognovela written by Carolina Aguirre. There’s channel at Viki for it if you would like to check it out. It’s a romantic comedy featuring our heroine on a quest to find true love before her sister’s wedding. Why? Because she heard her mother’s promise to younger sister: “If your older sister comes to the wedding with a real boyfriend, I will pay for the whole wedding!

Mother, be prepared to lose your coins! Lu Yi is coming your way!! LOL.

Adapted from Japanese novel Socrates in Love (恋するソクラテス) written by Kyoichi Katayama, Crying Out In Love stars two rising faces, Oho Ou Hao and Zhang Hui Wen, in a mournful love story. 20 years after his high school graduation, our hero receives a parcel in the mail that prompts a short vacation back to his hometown, where he recalls the days of youthful folly.

The trailer is so cute, why is this a melo?!

Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

Nice. The trailer proves to be the opposite of what I expected. Instead of humorous and wacky situations, we have political intrigues and mysterious murders to solve in the first gay Chinese ancient drama, Love Is More Than A Word (识汝不识丁[Shi Ru Bu Shi Ding]), adapted from the novel written by Su You Bing.

**Fixed Link to Trailer & BTS

Taiwanese drama Prince of Wolf with Derek Zhang, Amber An

Aha! Looks like I have something to fill the void after Back to 1989 completes its running this weekend. Set to follow the slot left behind by Refresh Man on July 3rd, Prince of Wolf stars Derek Zhang Xuan Rui and Amber An. The story follows a child lost during a vacation with his parents and was raised by a pack of wolves. He still retains some of the basic qualities of being human while gaining agility, speed, and the ability to hunt. He is naive, straightforward and stubborn. His first interaction with humans is through meeting the heroine, a photographer with a sense of adventure. Together, they teach each other a few things about living within and outside of societal standards.

First Stills of Jang Dong Gun and Tina Tang in Once Loved You Distressed Forever

What a happy drama title! LOL. Once Loved You Distressed Forever (我曾爱过你想起就心酸) is the drama adaptation of a novel written by Zi You Ji Guang. It’s described as a pure love story between a young girl and an older man (aka uncle ajushhi!) as he watches and guards her from afar while she falls in love with his friend (?). I don’t know the exact details yet cause I’m at work and can’t access Baidu/Chinese-related webbies. Balls! But according to older reports, they negotiated three months and changed a lot of the story in order to lure Korean actor Jang Dong Gun into acceptance. xD His leading lady is Tina Tang. Another lead role, good for her!

Wooohoo! Really like the heavy instruments in this song, kinda overshadowing William’s voice even. Lol. Formerly known as Old Nine Gates, The Mystic Nine has been pushed back from its original air date (6/20) to July 4th. Yo, I don’t have for ya!! I’m watching my same old boring fireworks!

Or…maybe not…
