The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

Yesh. I have resorted to begging now because the people behind this are clearly enjoying the pain inflicted on us!! Lordy. I know the name of the game is Cruel Romance, but no need to extract the cruelty from it and give it to us. I have plenty of drama pains, thank-you very much. This morning, a little bird told me, the date has been pushed forward. February 28th. DUN. DUN. DUN.

Have some stills while we charge through another month… of agony.

NOTE: More stills added 1.28.15 Will be doing so until it airs in this post.

Stills:

Posting the trailer again to get your blood running!

Trailer + Behind the scenes Video:

  • A refresher on the plot: Joe plays a rich girl who has fallen on hard times and travels to Shanghai in search of her half sister (Lu Jia Rong). But her half sister remembers how she and her mother was abandoned by Joe’s family and refuses to help. Kimi plays younger brother to Lu Jia Rong’s businessman boyfriend (Xie Jun Hao). Tattered and wretched, Joe is saved from the streets by Huang Xiao Ming, the Mobster Prince of Shanghai. He grooms her about the world, about dance, about arts, but she has a crush on Kimi. HAHAHA.
  • Directing is Lin He Long (Miss Shanghai Sweetheart, Devil Beside You), and writing is Yuan Shuai (Heros in Sui and Tang Dynasties, The Hero of Swallow), the story is based on a popular novel, The Fate of Jin Xiu.
  • Filming/acting is tedious! OMG. How many times must they repeat one scene!?

    This is just soooo cruel! But why do we allow them to treat us so cruelly? That’s because we are all fools in love! We are in love with this drama (or the idea of it) even before it starts and this gives them the license to be cruel towards us. Likewise, Cruel Romance! šŸ˜‰

    Let’s hope it’s just one more month!

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      LOL. We gave them the license….we are sooo blinded by the pretty. We are doomed!

      • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

        Oh, yes… the eye candies are definitely a plus! Did I mention I’m a sucker for all dramas with HXM in it??? Oh, yes…I am willingly tortured! Arrghh!!! The wait….~~!!!!! @[email protected]

        • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

          hahaha! The heart wants what it wants. 8D

  2. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    So excited for this drama! Qiao En still looks so young.

  3. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    Someone else may have mentioned this already, but doesn’t this plot seem awfully similar to Lady and the Liar?

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      it doesn’t really. in lady and the liar, there is identity theft between the two girls. here, joe is just lucky she caught the eye of the mobster prince and the happy kimi.

      i think you meant lady and liar has similar plot to destined to love you, which is another Joe’s drama. LOL. yea, that is confusing.

      im joining the begging clan. PLEASE DON’T BE CRUEL TO US NO MORE!!

  4. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    “but she has a crush on Kimi. HAHAHA.”. seems like you enjoy this ‘cruel romance’. lols.

    Just like Tang Yan, this year, Qiao En has some ready airing dramas. can’t wait.
    im curious about HXM’s Silent Separation movie also. I wonder how he portrait Yi Chen. Since Wallace Chung did a great job as Yi Chen.

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      I might as well enjoy the cruel romance if they are gonna be cruel to us. šŸ˜Ž

      I still don’t understand why they are making a movie version? As if having 30+ episodes aren’t enough? Stop milking the cow!

      • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

        30+ episodes are definitely enough! LOLs. and from what i heard, there would be 2 movies. They gotta be kidding me. i love silent separation but there are still many good novels. I hope those movies won’t ruin my ‘novel’ imagination. I like My Sunshine drama, but.. Gu Mam definitely ruined some characters there. such a pity!

        • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

          You want novels? You will get novels this year! More than 30+ novels are being sorted to become either movies or dramas this year. DUN DUN DUN.

        • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

          WOOT WOOT WOOT??!!

          30+ novels?? wow.. daebak.. i hope my fave novels would adapted into dramas/movies.. currently i read some novels in hui3r wordpress, so i wish at least one of my fave novels there would be adapted into drama/movie.

          Please post the news about this if you have any šŸ™‚ thanks Kap.

  5. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    Yeah.. Yeah.. Eventually this cruel torture will end?? How they keep changing the broadcast date just confusing.. So cruel! *__*

    Feb is coming.. Can’t wait to see Qiao En again. I miss the pretty girl acting.

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      Also.. I hope the subbing groups ready for Cruel Romance šŸ˜‰

      • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

        Oh….the nightmare of not having eng sub…. Oh Momo!!

  6. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    I actually waited back in September for this drama to come out but it never did, which was a disappointment. Glad that it’s finally having an aired date.

  7. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    I hope the little bird is reliable, because I don’t think I can be patient any longer. šŸ˜›
    Now that I know Kimi has/had a crush a Joe, I’m curious to see them interact on screen more than her chemistry with HXM. šŸ˜› (though of course their chemistry will probably dictate how compelling the drama will be to watch in the end) Hoping Joe’s amazing chemistry will continue to rock this drama~ :] … the dance scenes are still so hard to watch xD How come everyone can look good doing wushu moves, but can’t look good dancing ~_~

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      If she lie…. We could go bird hunting! Lol. But no matter what, it will air around March (in our case a few days earlier) because they want to spread out Joe’s dramas, unlike the people saturating every broadcast station with Tang Yan. Bad tactic!

      Kimi and his crush. It’s so adorable.

      Dancing scenes are hard to act out because they film so fast, actors don’t have time to rehearse at all. And it’s always the same – one, two, OUCH, one, two, bonk! XD

      • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

        Hahaha, hopefully we won’t have to. As long as they don’t push it back from March I think I’ll survive. @[email protected] -knocks on wood- I remember when I first read the air date would be in Oct/Nov 2014 and I was about to flip major tables when it got pushed back to “sometime early 2015”. @[email protected]
        That’s true, they probably take longer with wuxia dramas with all the crazy equipment they have to use. I’ll just cringe my way through the dance scenes and hopefully they’ll zoom in on their profiles during them so I won’t suffer too much xD

        • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

          ladies just saying, i have 3 pitchforks for us to use. lols.

        • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

          Tables were flipped on my end. LOL.

          haha Frea. Please bring extra, if needed.

        • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

          Yeah I don’t think I’ll survive too. When they continue to broke my excitement, I like errrrggggggg @[email protected] They just so mean to the point I don’t think I’ll believe any China drama/movie broadcast date anymore ah!! I’ll not care until they really airing. Or else I’ll GO HUNTING. LOL

          Gossip.. Gossip.. The Power of Gossip xD. Haha I’m curious too. I know the charm of Qiao En, she melt my heart too, but considering their age difference.. Really, never thought Kimi has a crush on QE šŸ™‚ People said he confessed and ‘QE is his goddess’ in an interview? I think he has the feeling for quite sometimes..probably since their first time collaboration in 2010? (I never watch that drama!) And he also surprised QE in one event. Oh Kimi so sweet <3

  8. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    I just know Kimi apparently gave/sent Qiao En a super giant teddy bear for Christmas. I’m sooooo jealous~ xD
    Thanks for the pitchfork Frea, hopefully will not be needed >_o

  9. 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      OMG! KIMI! I knew I was right in adoring you! I saw pictures of this event but the video is much better! Thanks Yin! He did use a lot of effort. I love her reaction to the bear’s hug, stepping AWAY from Mr. Suspicious/Perverted Bear. hahaha SO FUNNY.

      • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

        You’re welcome Kaptain. My favorite part was when she throw the flower away hahaha. that is priceless!
        Can’t wait to see their chemistry on screen.

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      lol…..she got freaked out and just threw the flower pot???!! imagine if she threw it at his face before realizing it’s kimi!! hahaha XD he likes her alright but looks like she sees him as a little brother only. poor kid!

      thanks yin. šŸ˜€

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      Yes this video šŸ™‚

      Haha gotcha.. QE really surprised to threw the flower pot away. Lovely! LOL XD
      Kimi so thoughtful with all he did for her. Such a romantic guy. If only he not so young. But why I want to say Jia You to him.

    • 49 thoughts on “The wait for Cruel Romance is over…mark your calendar!

      omo~ so cute! Although Kimi should’ve chosen a cuter looking bear. xD I would’ve given him the same side-eye if I had someone dressed in a costume like that coming towards me hahaha
