    I’m having mixed feelings about these. Hunan is known for its sucky editing but their dramas usually have ratings. Looks like I will check out most of these dramas when they premiere (except for the spy dramas like Miao Zhun / Ice-breaking Actions), and decide which ones I’ll continue.

    Aside from these, also looking forward to Legend of Fuyao, Heavy Ashness Sweet-like Frost, Tang Yan’s dramas and The Wolf (wonder which broadcast stations bought them?)

    Also, has Hunan completely got rid of Tribes and Empires? :/

      I believe Fu Yao is bought by Zhe Jiang. They bought quite a few dramas including Tang Yan’s Time Knows with Shawn Dou. But a drama could air on two different stations so HNTV/or another station might secure more.

        But Kappy, there’s one thing I don’t understand. The network which the drama air in has nothing to do with the drama’s quality right? Because I always see comments criticising dramas aired on HNTV are more idol-type dramas with bright background and have low qualities. I mean isn’t the production team that controls this?

        Anyway, I’m really looking forward for the other dramas: Legend of Fuyao, Heavy Sweetness Ash Like Frost, Madam White Snake, and the Flam’s daughter..

          I think some are confused because Hunan can slice and dice the dramas they bought however they like and that choppy editing affects the drama in small and big ways. Hunan airs a lot of dramas over the year in all time slots; a healthy mix of good, average, and bad dramas.

    I really look forward to The Rise of Phoenixes! Dunno what happened to Tribes & Empire….but I have quite an expectation for that drama too….

  3. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    I am in need of a new drama with Luo Jin, anything. So I will watching The Gods

  4. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    So many dramas!

    I appreciate FBB for putting in the work in her productions, but it’s a little OTT for my taste lol

    I don’t see the chemistry between YM and HZT.

    The way Luhan looks at Xiao Tong. I didn’t realize how young the 2 are.

  5. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    Ming Lan is on HNTV? And The Rise of Phoenixes too! I expect both to be not from HNTV because of the production tone it gives off 🙁 HNTV is horrible…

    Agree about FBB’s productions. She seems to like producing dramas surrounding those strong independent female characters, not that I dislike it but the tone of the drama is too OTT like Hannah said. Empress of China was a horrible drama. And FBB’s acting inside didn’t particularly shine or anything, it’s just the clothes that kept me interested.

    Rise of the Phoenix is #1 for me. Chen Kun in a drama? It could have been about him having the most boring life ever and I would have checked it out. hopefully Nini can carry her weight

  7. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    In the order as shown from the trailer.

    Here to Heart (whatever that means, lol I heart Janine Chang!)
    Sweet Combat (Lu Han’s my boy! Guan Xiao Tong’s my girl! Gonna steal Xiao Tong :D)
    Cry Me a Sad River (I’m all for Zheng Shuang!)
    Martial Universe (Looks so hot! Yang Yang’s my boy also! Zhang Tian Ai’s my sexy bae!)
    The King of Blaze (Jing Tian let’s go!)
    Untouchable Lovers (Guan Xiao Tong! Sign me up!)

    Not gonna watch Hunan cut edition of course. Hunan edit boo!

    2018 here yet?

  8. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    1,2,3 and old boy for Ariel. I would as least check this out. Of course I would board the zly and chen kun train even if they crash.

  9. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    The story of Minglan and Martial Universe because I like Zhao Liying & YangYang. Probably I will check Sweet combat, because I like youth drama & want to see Luhan’s chemistry with his gf

  10. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    I don’t know if it coincident or not but their list drama have 5 top Forbes celebrities: Fan Bingbing, Luhan, Yangmi, Zhao Liying, YangYang. I also heard Angelababy drama will be aired in HunanTV also

  11. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    I’m all pumped up for the shows after seeing this clip. Let’s see if the excitement lasts that long lol!

    I’m all in for Rise of Phoenixes, Martial Universe and The King of Blaze!!! I undoubtedly will like to board ZLY’s train, but I need to see her in something modern first. I haven’t seen Ariel Lin in anyway project in ages, hence I would like to see Old Boy. The Gods, Here to Heart, Love Like This and The Uncontrollable Lovers I would also like to give them a shot.

    I read Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost will air next year too. I binged read the novel some couple of months ago. I know 95% of drama adaptations never follow the novel, but I’m interested to see how the characters and story will be portrayed.

      hahahah I’ve been burnt so many times now… I’m trying to rein in my feelings. XD

  12. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    Looking forward to Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Sad?, rise of the pheonixes, The Story of Ming Lan, and Win The World. But Hunan…WHERE IS TRIBES AND EMPIRES TT.TT. I feel like it will decay by the time it is freed from their database.

    • 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

      I read it got returned from Hunan so we will probably won’t see it any time soon

      • 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

        Ouch. Let’s just pretend we never saw those awesome trailers T_T

  13. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    Looking forward to The Negotiator with Huang ZiTao & Yang Mi. This is probably their 4th collaboration together, but first drama, and I really like their chemistry. Tao’s a great actor & getting better and better with every acting project he takes on.

    • 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

      Lmao at Tao is a great actor… That’s why his current drama is so great in Douban?
      You must be his fan?
      To be honest, Tao and his pairing with YM are the main reason holding many people back for this drama. They might have chemistry as sister brother but this is drama- that need romantic chemistry

      Aside from that this is rumored to be an exchange drama for resource between Jaywalk and Hunan so I don’t expect much from it. Just hope Yang Mi won’t get much hate for this…
      She had a good run this year with both movie and drama so I hope The Negotiators won’t ruin it…

      Tao is lucky. At least he will get great exposure just to be Yang Mi’s lead alone even if the drama flopped.

      • 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

        I don’t think Negotiator will flop. Interpreter was a really bad drama but it was the highest rated drama of 2016. Yang Mi’s star power is amazing.

    Looking forward to The Negotiator with Huang ZiTao & Yang Mi. This will be their 4th collaboration together, first drama, and I really like their chemistry. Also, Tao is a great actor, he gets better and better with each project.

  15. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    Hunan is buying everything after getting a good year.
    Looking forward to The Rise of Phoenix, Old boy
    Will checking out FFB and YM’s dramas too because I like them but I’m not sure how to take YM’s pairing w Tao yet lol… and FBB’s overall drama but the visual will be nice at least

    For Yang Mi I look forward to Legend of Fuyao much more, both in story and lead actor’s chemistry. But Hunan didn’t buy it…

  16. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018

    I’m looking forward to Martial Universe, looks good and I love Yang Yang.

    Also looking forward to Negotiators, I like Yang Mi and I personally think Huang Zitao is a really good actor, lots of presence on screen, the camera loves him. I liked him a lot in Edge of Innocence and He was really good in Game Changer. He’s doing fine too in A Chinese Odyssey, from the bits I saw, he’s doing a good job he’s really funny. It’s hard though for some people to give it a chance because they compare it to Stephen Chow’s Chinese Odyssey. Personally not my cup of tea but from what I saw the viewer ratings for the show are great, isn’t it the #1 web drama right now?.

    Anyway Yang Mi and HZT are good friend I’m looking forward to see how that chemistry will translate when they are paired as a couple. I’m a sucker for Noona romances, I just got into Chinese dramas, I’m anticipating watching a Chinese one.

      It’s a slow season for dramas and if you want to compare Tao’s current drama’s online views are about 1/10 of real TV hits dramas like PA and TMOPB.
      But the drama rating is 3.3 right now…. It’s bottom low.

  17. 28 thoughts on “Hunan TV previews hefty dramas line-up in 2018
