=======> ♦ In Destiny’s Love (爱上北斗星男友), Ming En will be romancing the lovely Xu Lu (also in Tribes and Empires, lol, he’s romancing their ladies). Seems like they are playing two characters, one from the past and they meet again in the modern times? A big war breaks out in the Big Dipper causing the universe to lose it’s balance energy tool (?) When the past Ming En visits earth to find the tool, he encounters and falls in love with female general Xu Lu. In order to save her, he modifies her destiny which leads to a disastrous loop, causing her to die before she turns 30 in all her reincarnations. For his intervention, he’s punished and locked up in the Big Dipper for 3,000 years. After he’s released, he visits Earth again, hoping to right his wrongs.

    Hey, even the ladies look nice in suits in the latter drama!

    I love Zhang Ming En every since Tomb of Sea (gdi he was great there). BUT I’m not particularly interested in either of these dramas. Janice is a pretty bad actress, at best mediocre (as in Tribes and Empires — altho I admit I liked her character there), in spite of her pretty face (kind of like AB, she oscillates between dead-face and awkward over-acting lol).

    Xu Lu…I sometimes am ok with her, sometimes think she’s a little overrated. Idk, she’s mentioned a lot with Li Qin and has a reputation for “good acting”, but honestly from what I’ve seen of her, she’s not bad, but she’s not that great either? I don’t dislike her or her acting, but media playing up her “skills” makes me more likely to be biased against her. (tbh I didn’t like her character in T&E, and she didn’t help make her character likable at all…the only thing I’ve liked her in is Our Shining Days).

      I don’t think Xu Lu is mentioned alongside Li Qin as a good actress.
      She’s pretty much disliked in China because of her mediocre acting skills (yet get good drama offers due to her military background) and her mediaplay with the late Qiao Renliang. I remember in Tribes, people preferred Eleanor Lee over her when they played the same character.

    I watched episode 1 of Nice to Meet You last night to see if I should start watching it. The drama seems to be full of the usual modern Cdrama tropes. Complications with the older generation’ relationships influence their children’s romances, business rivalries and a lot of misunderstandings and unnecessary angst between the leads. Half-sisters involved with the male lead, his brother in love with one of the sisters, and there’s the female lead’s protector as well. Yeah, we’ve definitely seen this somewhere before.

    I’ll probably stay around for the jewelry design — if it even serves a purpose in the series.

    As for the cast, I have no attachment to Zhang Mingen as I only lasted about 10 minutes of Mystic Nine and I haven’t seen Janice Man in anything else other than in the occasional HK news, so they’re both “fresh” in my eyes.

      It is the sister drama to Because of You (the one starring Sun Yi and Deng Lun, aka the Chinese remake of Jang Bori is Here), so expect it to be full of melodramatic tropes just like a typical Korean weekend drama.

        Thanks for the warning. I haven’t seen any of those dramas and I don’t watch Kdramas lol.
