For the past two weeks, I was rewatching a Korean series which finished airing in 2006, the whopping 85 episodes of Dear Heaven. Lol. I know! I had lost my mind to rewatch something so long but I promised you the forward button was handy 40+ episodes of it. XD What I really enjoyed about the romance in this series, which is missing in a lot of series these days is the whole developing and evolving of feelings – from the attraction stage, to the slowly getting to you know stage. It was genuine, sweet, and magnetic to see their feelings for each other grow and latch on securely despite the opposition from their families. I love watching how two people fall in love with each other; love-at-first-sight is not my cup of tea!
Another Li Xi Rui‘s drama! She’s currently being wooed by Dylan Xiong in Pretty Man. To Love To Heal is another modern drama where she’s paired up with Jiang Chao (The Fox’s Summer). As the name suggests, it’s a healing romance where our heroine loses her first love in an accident and therefore she lives in the past, doing the things he would want to do, pursuing studies he would want to do. Years pass by just like that until she meets a game CEO at a bar and they engage…in a one night stand that leaves the hero rattled when she cries and calls out his name in pain (he shares the same second character name with her lost love.) Two years pass by before the two meet again and this time, he’s eager to win over her cold heart! Whether or not they keep certain aspects in the drama is another story. 🙂
One of the new actresses that rose out of the batch last year was Li Kai Xin, who was in youth webdrama The Big Boss. As always, I haven’t watched that series so can’t say much except for a shallow comment that she’s really, really pretty and fresh-looking! Here are her two upcoming dramas, one just wrapped up and one just started filming.
Wow, I’m quite numbed by the revelation, totally not any of the leaked audition participants! They didn’t reveal the whole cast officially but the main heavy-weight characters are there! The new remake of Jin Yong’s third part in his Condor Series has a mouthful name of Heavenly Sword Dragon Slaying Saber 2018.
Despite not having the youthful look like many other actresses in her age group (which to me is a big PLUS), Maggie Jiang is pretty lucky so far in her acting projects. Here she’s romancing Wallace Chung, with puppy Aaron Yan hanging around loyally, and a rock star dad in Christopher Lee!
