Everyone looks good, from main to supporting! YAY! If I could describe the plot in short terms, it would be In Time With You 2.0 because here our leads have been friends for 15 years, from their hormonal youth into adulthood. They support each other throughout the years and finally recognize that the best kind of love is the kind that grows along with you. Zhang Tian Ai is the go-getter at work but is unlucky with men (with that face?!) and Zhang Ruo Yun‘s the gentle soul with homely manners. Awww, their dynamics is gonna be uber sweet.
Oh, lookie, Tang Yan’s baby chick leading a drama. She was the princess in Princess Wei Young. Wang Yi Bo and Chen Yu Qi will lead a fantasy modern drama called Private Shu Shan College (私立蜀山学园), joined by young actors Wang Yi Lun (Long For You), Pei Zi Tian (Sunshine In Me), Chai Wei, and flanked by professors from TVB – Joe Ma, Benny Chan, and Michael Miu. I kid you not, they look like Hogwarts professors. XD
More promos! What is new? Based on the Ju Hua San Li’s novel, General Above I Am Below, Oh My General (将军在上) stars Sandra Ma Si Chun and Peter Sheng Yi Lun as two most unlikely marriage partners turned power couple. I’m so pumped but the air date is in the middle of the week! What the heck! October 25th on youku.
Never Gone (So You’re Still Here, 原来你还在这里) is based on the novel written by Xin Yi Wu. A pure and entangling love story that extends through the years and comes to a temporary end when social status and money throw a wedge in their budding love. Unlike other dramas where the main leading actors play the youths and the adults, the crew has decided to use fresh-faced rookie actors to play the younger versions, which is always a plus for me! But one thing…this is one gloomy-looking group of young adults…. Lol….
It’s here! I only found out about this drama a week ago but let me tell you, it was a very long week lol I’m fairly new to Chinese Dramas. I was browsing an Asian drama website looking for a new Korean drama to watch when I happened upon Ice Fantasy. I devoured it. Thus started my budding crush on Feng Shao Feng. Of course it was only natural that I waited in anticipation for his next drama The Starry Night The Starry Sea, and now here I am waiting and watching The Starry Night The Starry Sea 2. The fall into Chinese Drama junky is a slow and steady one.
I have to say, one of the things that first drew me to The Starry Night The Starry Sea (besides Feng Shao Feng) was that the story was not about a mermaid but a merman. I would say that 99% of stories about merpeople are focused on a female. Be it the American industry such as the movies The Little Mermaid and Splash or the international industry such as the Korean dramas Legend of the Blue Sea and Surplus Princess. So the fact that this drama focused on a merman was immediately intriguing. Ok, enough chatter, let’s get this review started.
EEEEEE! I can’t wait for this webdrama with Zhu Yi Long and Bai Yu! They are adorable behind-the-scenes! Guardian (镇魂) is based on the novel Zhen Hun written by Priest. A world beyond scientific understanding with a group of passionate adults trying to solve cases done by such forces.
A thug and a clean-cut professor working together? SIGN ME UP.
