Drama Ever Night (Jiang Ye) with Chen Fei Yu and Song Yi Ren to air

Ohhhhh Ohhhh….I am strangely looking forward to Ever Night (Jiang Ye), adapted from the fantasy novel written by Mao Ni. I have never seen the two leads in any other projects, both are rising new faces, especially Song Yi Ren who looks so adorable with her petite frame. What amazes me is the veteran actors enlisted for this drama, you have Leon Lai (what?! I didn’t recognize him at all, time is not kind to him, lol), Adam Cheng, Ni Da Hong, Hu Jun, just to name a few.

Will this be the drama to get me out of my drama drought? Just one caveat I notice….all the girls he meets….they look smitten with him…that is too many girls! But I’m also happy to report that the drama weibo has been posting short clips of the cast dubbing their own voices. Another yay!

Synopsis and Stills:

I read a little of the novel and the beginning starts out like this: The story takes place in the Tang Dynasty. Our hero is the last surviving member of General Lin Guang Yuan after everyone was massacred by senior general Xia Hou through detailed framing and ruthless execution. The little boy (future Chen Fei Yu) then digs out a young girl (Song Yi Ren) in a pile of dead bodies and they become each other’s family. She’s seen as his maid as she’s frail, dark, and often sick. But she has never addressed him as master until later on in the story, which is done strategically. And yes, she’s our heroine as well, with a secret identity to boot. An identity so significant and life-changing, the whole world wants to hunt her down in the future, but the hero remains by her side to protect her. After they escape death as kids, they move to Wei City and the boy soon becomes a well-loved kid with his wits and honeyed words, and they are later accepted into military camp. They reside there for eight years before leaving the safe haven to guide a noble guest back to Chang An. She’s Tang’s fourth princess who married a tribe leader in a political marriage for peace. Her husband is found dead and now she needs to sneak back to the palace. This is also an opportunity for our hero to earn merits from the princess and her people to gain him entrance into Tang’s famous Academy to be trained with the elites. Because he does have a family to avenge for! [Kappy@AVV] DO NOT TAKE OUT W/O PERMISSION!

    This is also one of my anticipated dramas, Kaps! (The trailer did it to me.. sigh, I never learn from Princess Agents and Tribes & Empires). I read elsewhere the writer says it will be released by 31 October. I want to believe it but.. no info on how many episodes it has, whether it will be broadcast on TV or web only, and there has not even been a press conference! So I take it with tons of salt.

        Thank you for your info!
        I eventually checked the weibo & douban page — and yes, premier is 31 on October indeed. Yaaayyy!!! *happy dance* Can’t believe it’s airing so soon without much fanfare. 60 episodes?? I know I can expect great cinematography — but I pray that please pretty please the editing be at least decent. I can even accept crappy story or stiff actors, just decent direction & editing will make me content. I also hope it will be subbed — or Viki picks it up.

    This looks really promising…I really really hope that this will be a good adaptation..so many dramas disappointed – Princess Agents and Rising of the Phoenixes-I still can´t get over the fact that they changed a HE to a SE..
    The stills look great and most of all, the actors don´t seem to be just “pretty faces”..
    Thank you so much for making me aware of this drama.

    @kappy…..Leon Lai seems to be aging well. At least to me, he looks pretty good in this drama.

    I read the first 7 chapters of the novel. It’s a looooong novel. Too soon to see why all the girls would be smitten with him given he was seen as a male chauvinist from the way he treated his “maid”. However, cdrama script writers do like to bend over backwards to turn characters into Mary/Marty Sues.

    Based on reviews of the novel. It seems to be about the struggle between Taoism, Buddhism and a demonic religion that the hero and maid would be deeply involved in. Don’t know how the adaptation will be because censors are seriously cracking down religious content in dramas.

    Am I the only one who feels meh about the trailer? Then again, I’m not particularly looking forward to this bc 1) I’m not a fan of Chen Fei Yu, 2) I love Yuan Bing Yan and she’s not the endgame unless it’s non-monogamous, which in that case isn’t my cup of tea anyways, and 3) the trailer seems all about the various love relationships with some hint of hero’s journey plot, except, there’s nothing particularly thematic or put together or even motivating about the plot so meh?

    I feel like I’m being biased and harsh here tho. Idk, I’m just not particularly into the whole setup as is.

    Been seeing positive reviews of the novel (here – it is over 40 volumes long; it is tooooo long for me) – so based on the preview of the drama – I am looking forward. No judgement until I see the first few episodes. Prays that it is a solid adaptation (we all know there will be changes but that is a lot to cram into 60 episodes)!
