=======> ♦ She and Her Perfect Husband (爱的二八定律) is a modern drama with Xu Kai and Yang Mi. Our female lead is a career-driven lawyer who is often pressured by her family to get married. One of the requirements at the top law firm specializing in family affairs where she applied for a job is to be married, which leads her brother, a headhunter, to changing her marriage status behind her back. Once she learns of the ridiculous lie, she tries to right the wrong but is greeted by her new supposed husband – our male lead, who is also forced by his mother to get married. He seeks out her help to ward off their parents. Things get complicated when our heroine’s ex also joins the same law firm. Of course, only one firm in dramaland!

He looks adorable at the press conference.

=======> ♦ Ancient Love Poetry (千古玦尘) drops their first set of stills and boy am I so happy to see a new styling for Zhou Dong Yu. I can see how she is an immortal goddess that Xu Kai longs for thousands of years.

Ancient Love Poetry is adapted from the novel Shang Gu (上古) written by Xing Ling. The story follows one of the four Immortals named Shang Gu who falls into a deep slumber after sacrificing herself in a trial 60,000 years ago. She wakes up with no memories of the past. But someone else hasn’t forgotten about their love, another immortal who waited for her, our male lead played by Xu Kai. Their epic love story undergoes several rounds of life and death (you don’t say).

Zhang Ya Qin! Female lead from the recently finished Love In Between.

Zhang Yun Long.

    I like the styling for Zhou Dong Yu! Hope this drama will be good and finally remove the image of her in Sparrow in my mind lol.

    Yay Zhang Ya Qin! Keen to see more of the cast from LIB 🙂

    And bahaha I spot Li Ze Feng, he’s getting some slight popularity lately from Nothing But Thirty. Very pissed off with his character in the drama but his weibo posts have been quite funny.

    I like ZDY in movies but her drama characters don’t seem to be well-liked. I’m in the minority but I quite liked her character in Sparrow as I think it brought some different dynamics to the cast and characters. Her other dramas with Luo Jin & Chen Xiao were a waste of her talent so let’s see how she does in her first historical costume drama.

      Did you read the ~news on how ZDY’s studio or something seemed to get her very high pay out of her TV dramas? I only watched half of Sparrow. I was somewhat positive on her acting. I do prefer her film acting but I only saw a couple of her movies too. I feel the same way about Sandra Ma’s films vs dramas too. Her, SM’s, Ding Mo adaptation was her only drama I watched all the way.

      I finished Oriental Odyssey and Reborn.
      Weird how many times they have cast Zheng YC as a prince. OO’s first half of the drama was ok. Youth sleuths solving cases. It gets increasingly weird, the plot worsens, once ZYC regains his memory and become a prince of Kingdom X. Acting also gets somewhat worse in the last quarter or so of the drama.

      Reborn ‘s greatest weakness is its plot. Unlike most C thrillers like Dr Qin, Ding Mo adaptations that tend to have poor endings, Reborn’s greatest weakness is in the plots of the individual cases. I didn’t find the guest characters interesting. I like the recurring chars. Early and late episodes are decent. Though there was an episode where Zhao Jinmai’s character ends up sitting on a time bomb in a car seat. That was not logical. They skipped some steps there too. Zhao Jinmai’s acting is more pleasant to watch than Wu Qian’s I think.

      I watched Ni Ni’s Love & Destiny. Not bad actually. I like ML FL acting. Plot got slower, draggy by ~ep 50. I like their set designs. lol. Didn’t like LD’s ending plot so much, but it was better than Hua Qiangu.

      Do you have fav 2000 dramas so far? What are you watching after LiB?

      I haven’t watched that many 2000 dramas. Very busy. I skipped 60% of Miss Truth, Love Lasts a Lifetime(?), LiB. I may watch Roommate is Detective, Skate Into Love next. I was ok with Li Kaixin’s recent (June?) romcom. Not bad for a background drama. I can’t remember all these drama titles.
      If There’s No Tomorrow sound interesting. I’m waiting to get some free time to check it out.

      I tried and discontinued Zhao Lusi, Zhang Yuxi dramas. Intense Love.
      I find Mr Honesty (Liang Jie) more tolerable as a background drama.
