The second installment of the Beauty series, Beauty at the Crossfires, is set to air in two weeks, on the 14th of this month. Really? Everything is just gonna air during my Christmas vacation ain’t it? Alrighty, let the sleepless nights begin (if…subtitle is available…) Anyways, only Sammul Chan remains from the prequel. How I missed this scholarly lad! He’s been in many Chinese dramas after bidding goodbye to native home in TVB and I don’t remember the last I saw of him (possibly The White Flame with Charmaine Sheh.) Taking the female lead role is the young but talented Shu Chang, who I found adorable in The Lotus Lantern.
Set around the 1920s, Shu Chang plays Tong Yu Wan, an open-minded artist who’s shoved into a marriage with wealthy boy, Du Yun Tang (Sammul Chan), even though she loves military warrior, Ting Chen (Qiao Zhen Yu). As she struggles between the love of both men, our girl finds herself in the position of leadership as the next prominent business tycoon. Ooohh, I kinda like the last part. But how was the first series, Gone with the Wind, with Tang Yan? Good? Mediocre?
From what I read, he marries her to get revenge, so the early days of their marriage is pretty abusive. GAH.
Of course, his loving eyes will soon be uncovered.
This one is cute. She’s very small and Sammul is taller than your average Asian actor.
Newbie actress – Wu Jin Yan.
