    Thank you for writing this post just for me, Kappy. I’m the only one commenting here. 😛

    I like the trailer for Burning Ice and I had seen ok performances from the 2 leads in C films before. I checked out the first few minutes of the first ep. So far it looks good. The acting, lighting, music and cinematography. I’m starting to prefer web dramas especially after PA. Also, Let’s Shake It is funny half the time. Tang Bao and Zheng YC’s acting isn’t perfect, but it’s still fun to watch overall. I’m surprised I prefer LSI to Wuxin2. Wuxin2 is ok but not as good as Wuxin1. None of these web dramas gave me nearly as much bad aftertaste as PA. I couldn’t even finish PA. PA got me started on C-dramas-with-3-beautiful-leads allergy and worsened my Mary Sue allergy.

    I don’t like the Day & Night trailer as much. I haven’t watched Pan Yue Ming in anything before.

      LOL. Thanks for giving these two projects some love, Anon.

      PA aftertaste is really strong. xD Wu Xin should just focus on the bromance!

        I have to admit, I’ve been just minimally skimming ZLY news. Afraid of worsening post-PA allergy. I think you know what I mean. xD You know… I had an ominous feeling about PA from the first ep but kept hoping it would improve but it never excelled and kinda fell off the cliff by ep 30+. Now I’m even more wary of Croton/Ciwen. How do they end up with the PA they showed us on TV with those actors they had as leads? It’s like making chocolates taste terrible.

        There’s way too much politics, weird issues surrounding many TV dramas. Baidu, Alibaba w their web platforms & subsidiaries may have more control over their web dramas. They also seem to able to recruit adequate talents to package up a few of their web dramas so the plot, editing, etc. are not horrible. I’m also pleased with Alibaba Picture’s (Little) Door Gods’ animated film from around 2016. I’m not sure when we can see their 2017 animated film in our continent.

        Tang Bao’s comic acting is entertaining.

        One warning about Burning Ice is the camera work. It goes for the gritty look, so the camera can shake at times when investigators are walking through alleys or going through other suspenseful times. Few beautiful people in this drama. Deng Jiajia looks fine.

What do you think?
