    Beautiful production, but why is Ming Lan recycling music from NIF?

      What is NIF

        Nirvana in Fire

        The 2015 drama starring Hu Ge and Wang Kai. It was a huge success and instantly became a timeless classic. Most cdrama fans agree it’s one of the best dramas produced of all time due to its plot and production quality.

        It was one of the few cdramas that basically didn’t have a huge “love story” and was still a ratings blockbuster. It would’ve easily been drama of the year if Journey of Flower wasn’t released that same year.

      my question too.. maybe it’s because it’s the same production.. but that just being lazy and cheap…shame on production team to do this to ZLY… I just hope they are not recycling it for the drama itself when it air…

        Since it’s not a war drama I think they should not make the pace so slow to this extent. It doesn’t have to be consistent with NIF and doesn’t need the boring style. There can totally be a bit more color. It feels like they’re living at night with a never bright day. ZLY bangs are so errr…also, actually kind of wish they would dubb her voice too. Hopefully the storyline will be good.

          Glad to see someone else was a little “meh” on the bangs, too. Seems like a very slow burn of a story but I’ll be watching …

        Maybe post production isn’t finished yet. Voice-dubbing would be a given unless the production company ran out of money.

          Yeah, didn’t filming finish early this month? I doubt they are finished with post-production. They probably just threw this footage together and slapped on that music just to get it out there because people are anticipating this project.

      Usually trailers, even US trailers almost always use music from different films not their own.

      The reason is soundtracks are usually composed after the composer has seen the finished product and takes around 1-3 months.

      For example the trailer for Pride and Prejudice 2003 used music from Love Actually

    Damn the NIF vibes coming back with the background music in Ming Lan 🙁 Idk what’s going on in the trailer but seems something like Ming Lan’s marriage? Not seeing the sparks between FSF and ZLY yet oh my…
    But ZLY really doesn’t disappoint with her acting. She is showing a new side and character again! 🙂

    I can’t hear the NIF music that everyone’s talking about? It’s just me, I guess.

    I don’t even need 3 minutes to board the so-called wrong ship in Ming Lan — an in the name of cheesiness, if this is wrong, I don’t want to be right! LOL. Zhu Yi Long, why you so adorbs!! I really like the Ming Lan trailer. Acting & cinematography look decent, and the styling is lovely.

    Totally looking forward to Minglan now. Thanks for the update Kap.

    I couldn’t get past the NIF music in the background….(still arguably the best drama produced in the last few years)

    Otherwise the costumes and cinematography are great, which is expected of Daylight. The story itself hasn’t quite caught my interest yet

  6. 20 thoughts on “New Trailers: The Story of Ming Lan, Summer’s Desire, Escape, His Excellency’s First Love

    Lol..I don’t remember the music in NIF though they do have a similar vibe…I guess they might recycle some if not all. Tangren used to do the same..haven’t seen their recent production so cannot comment.

    Zhuyilong is so gonna break out in this role. Though technically FSF is the lead, QiHeng character was more appealing even to readers. I remember Gu Er Shu don’t even show up much in one third of story…they will have to change that or the entire nation is gonna board the wrong ship. Lol. I foresee another shipping war.

    Summer Desire remake of the Taiwanese’s version is a bit disappointing according from what I see from the trailer 😛 I couldn’t feel the vibe of “Summer Desire.” Looking forward to “Escape” (one of my most anticipated drama of this year because of my two most favorite actors Chen Kun and Wan Qian), Story of Ming Lan (because of the two main actors) and Hear to Heart.

    A ZLY and FSF drama needs to recycle NIF ost?
    I guess they really ran out of money haha.

    Personally the trailer doesn’t seem that interesting to me. Hopefully it won’t be released in the same time frame as Legend of Fu Yao or Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace.

    Oh, ZYL x ZLY lol

    I like the trailer for Ming Lan. It gives off a very oldschool/authentic vibe a la Hong Lou Meng. Like, I can totally believe that’s a real family/lifestyle of the time period.

    Yep, sorry. I read the comments first and then watched the trailer. Totally had NIF music in the trailer. >_< I love NIF and have the OST so was completely distracted by how lazily the trailer seemed to be made. Not sure I'm that interested after seeing the trailer. Will wait for people's feedback before checking out the show.
