=======> ♦ With the exception of the leads in Zhang Yun Long (Xuan Yuan Sword) and Bridgette Qiao Xin (Ode to Joy), the supporting cast is all from Three Lives Three Worlds drama version. They are here to support big bro Leon in his modern drama? hehe. This is why you can’t mess with Yang Mi’s kids, they come in herds! I’m slowly getting all the drama titles mixed up, the direction translation for this one is tentatively When/While We’re Still Young (趁我们还年轻). The synopsis is about social communications department and how our female lead butts heads with the hero who is hiding his rich background at work. Sounds familiar…. Lol.

Directing is Wang Ying (The Interpreter, Dare to Love) with 40 episodes in planning.

Looking fresh and mighty adorable, Leon.

I honestly didn’t recognize Qiao Xin, she looks so different from Ode To Joy image. It must be the bangs!

=======> ♦ With the same producer behind Hong Kong hit series, Triumph In The Skies, Mainland will get their version of aviation themed drama starring Chen Qiao En and Ryan Zheng Kai. Looking at this and then Triumph in The Skies…. I am disappointed, the former had many strong leading actors at once while promoting young potential rookies. Please don’t make this into a romance drama all the way.

Directing is given to Cai Jing Sheng (A Lifetime Love) and Aspirations Fly High plans to have 40 episodes.

    Yay it’s my girl!!! I love Dai Si and Bridgette AND Leon so there’s my crew.

    I really try to like and support Chen Qiao En but she built such an acting rep that even I have hard time drumming up excitement for her lead dramas.

    Very strong cast for TVB’s Triumph vs Joe Chen’s. Not exciting!

    The cast of When We Are Still Young are all people from Yang Mi’s agency except Qiao Xin. I must say I’m not interested at all. I just cannot appreciate Zhang Yun Long’s face.

    I’m disappointed at the cast for TitS. CQE is not thaaat bad, but ZK… Do people actually want to watch him? He’s not Francis Ng nor Joe Ma in stature and vibe. The trio of leading actors aren’t great at acting as well.

    I spot the crew of pilot trainees but I can’t see their faces clearly. They really should scout the acting schools for NATURAL-looking, fresh-face actors with potential to play those roles. Hopefully they choose their supporting actors better than PA, though I’m not keeping my hopes up.

    I’m with Julianna and her crush on Di Se. She ‘s so pretty and elegant. I’ve already decided she’s my favourite character purely based on her outfit in that poster 😀

    Is Huang Meng Ying also under Yang Mi? To be honest, she is actually not bad at all but I really hope she is not the ‘evil’ second lead again.

    Did Qiao Xin have plastic surgery or is were the pictures just over-photoshopped? Looks like a completely different person.

      Maybe she lost weight? Sometimes losing weight and different hair styles changed your face a little no? I didn’t recognised her neither until I saw her name.

    A must watch for me coz all of these are excellent actors even if I only had seen them acted once in Ten Miles.

    Liu Rui Lin is my crush from TMoPB.
    I can’t wait for princess spy Huang Meng Ying to have a lead role. I think it will be so exciting to watch her as lead girl.

    And yes, same, about the poster, bless them!
    “They are so nice to us, even giving us some character posters”,
    and the last poster with people flying in the sky was amazing.

    and I think I must be dreaming coz I think weeks ago I saw a video trailer on youtube of an ancient drama with some of the casts of TMOPB too, and the lead guy’s face is like Zhang Yun Long too!
    But this drama is a modern drama, and the drama’s trailer that I saw was an ancient one.
    So is it just me or there are two dramas with similar casts . . . ?

      You must have saw Xuan Yuan Sword’s trailer.
      Yang Mi’s kids are always together so it can be quite confusing.

      And as much as I like Joe Chen, she needs to stop doing these idol dramas ._.
      But I understand why she sticks to them though; since they pretty much establish her as a ratings queen.

        Thank you for telling.
        and errr feel the same way about CQE’s drama. So far all her dramas are all the same, and the posters are also alike – uniforms, men, men in uniforms, jobs, jobs with romance, etc.
