    Hm the people in Royal Highness seems eye candy. First time seeing or hearing about Yuan Bing Yan, she’s very pretty and looks very natural. Might become the next girl I’ll chase after, if the drama goes well…

    OGT looks like there are too many twirling around.

    Looking forward to YM and Wallace pairing.

    Never Gone is airing next week, and Elvis’ voice isn’t dubbed like in Speed.

    Jin Han looks better than expected. I’m looking forward to My Glamorous Times.

    Kind of interested in White Snake bc I quite like JJY but am I the only one who’s meh about Yu Meng Long (I mean, yes he’s got an objectively pleasant face but I don’t find him as beautiful as everyone says? and he’s a meh actor, even for a relative newbie)? I’m also gonna get prob some bit of hate for this too, but I’ve also never been a fan of the Legend of the White Snake story, as a whole. Traditionally, I’ve found the husband/man to be really weak in character (this tends to change adaptation to adaptation I think tho) and just kinda…like I don’t get his attraction?

    Looking forward to Our Glamorous Times cuz I quite like the source novel, and tbh, it’s ZLY so of course.

    I’m…hesitant about Royal Highness. I ADORE Yuan Bing Yan to bits, and I quite like Wang Zi Xuan (Wang Xuan? something like that) ever since Tientsin Mystic…BUT I’m, less than ambivalent about harem dramas. Maybe it’s a societal construct, but while I won’t judge, in entertainment I prefer monogamy…yeah…

    Might (big maybe) check out Masters bc Yang Mi looks really good (mostly styling but also character-wise, which is surprisingly for me cuz I’m not always her fan…); sorry Kappy, I’m actually loving the bangs lol. At the same time, I’m meh with the time period per usual, and tbh I’m very much NOT a fan of Wallace Huo.

    Definitely anticipating Detective L even tho the name is VERY unfortunate (I’ve never seen it, but Death Note definitely crossed my mind there…) bc seriously, Bai Yu
    (but also tho, idk if it’ll be good bc Chinese (idol) detective/crime shows are rarely good — Guardians was good bc of the characters and acting/chemistry and Qin Medical Examiner w/ZRY was good bc it was an anomaly — not counting all the serious under-appreciated but still popular ones like Burning Ice and Day and Night)

      The Legend of White Snake – I like Ju Jing Yi but wish it was a different male in the lead. I don’t like Alan Yu’s acting or his face at all. I’m surprised he is considered handsome. I find him so plastic looking.

      Same here. Alan Yu is lackluster to me and in addition to a weak character in White Snake, it’s not going to offer him a chance to shine. I’m not into modern, Republican era, or harem dramas. That leaves me with only wuxia dramas to purview and of which, White Snake does not stir up the slightest interest.

        I meant preview.

    Only saw Alan Yu in Go Go princess but never really get his appeal. Trailer for white snake looks good….at least more of the white snake story I know than the YangZi version lol. Having said that also agree with Julianne that it’s not a story I particularly like because of the weak male character …Will still give a try cos JJY looks really pretty…though wish styling is a little bit more different than her YunXi character.

    Definitely gonna watch OGT because of my LY. I know it will deviate from source material but hopefully just don’t bore me till I give up. I have higher threshold for her…and more than willing to give JInHan a chance…poor dude seems to disappear from news after OGT completed filming.

    Royal highness looks ok…Remember all the JY books are technically harem lol. BUT I think I have facial blindness…the girls all look the same to me….oh dear. Maybe cos I’m not familiar with them. JJF has good styling though.

    Yang Mi and Wallace. Interesting cast. Never watch the original kdrama but as usual Yang Mi has a good eye for projects I don’t think it will do too bad. Love her styling..she looks lovely.

    I just watched the theme MV for Never Gone this morning and now I’m intrigued. Never read the novel or watched the movie though, so I’m going to start it with a blank slate. There’s nothing new and innovative in the plot but I guess I’m a sucker for Elvis pining after his female leads. =P

    Our Glamourous Times…Li Ying looks very pretty in it and I’ve missed her in modern series, but will be skipping this one. I’ll reread the original work and patiently wait for Minglan instead. Lol.

    Our Glamorous Times seems interesting, better than I’ve thought on the trailer. Legend of Madam White Snake also seems good. Yang Zi’s version got me all disappointed, so hopefully JJY’s version will be as good as the trailer.

    Detective L and Royal Highness for me based on previews. Hope they are subbed.

    All looking nice and tempting.
    I recently finished reading Our Glamourous Times, and I already saw scenes in the trailer that doesn’t appear to be in the novel lol!! Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to it. I’m wondering if Jin Han will really be able to pull off Li Zhicheng.

    Masters looks pretty good, I like the pairing! I could hardly follow the trailer, a lot was happening lol!

    Is Bai Yu sticking to detective roles now? The trailer for Detective L is the most exciting and thrilling among all the trailers. So yes, it’s on my list.

    Never Gone looks pretty interesting. I also like the idea of the two couples. Hopefully, the story of the second couple won’t be as angsty as the main couple.

    It would not surprise me if the TV station advanced the broadcast date for Our Glamorous Times, due to Zhao LiYing’s wedding announcement, that was big news. I am looking forward to this drama. I read the translated chapters last year. It was incomplete, and I would like to know the balance of the story. Jin Han looks fine as the male lead character.

    I am totally looking forward to Liying’s and Jinhan’s OGT. I have been waiting fo rit like forever LOL Can’t wait. I like the trailer and Jinhan looks fab and masculine. Liying is her usual beautiful self. Otherwise, I am also looking forward to Minglan.
