Sorry for the lack of updates guys! Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving or week wherever you are. Below are 6 more dramas to add to your list of November premieres. This is not even the end yet… Lol.
My Deepest Dream (乌云遇皎月) is an upcoming modern drama adapted from the sci-fi novel written by Ding Mo starring Li Yi Tong and Jin Han. The storyline is quite complicated so I’ll try to simplify it….I hope. XD Our leads first meet on a cruise and at the time; he was a mathematics graduate, described as wise, clean, and sharp, and she was a web writer. They speak briefly but the conversation is enough for them to feel the attraction. But due to a minor misunderstanding, she leaves the cruise feeling unhappy. A year later, they meet for the second time and now he’s transformed completely, he’s a broody repairman. Though she does not recognize him, he still manages to attract her. What has happened in a span of a year for a man to change that much? They thought leaving the cruise a year ago meant their path has ended, but it’s quite the opposite. Apparently, the cruise they were on had an accident and the people on the cruise went missing for a time period. They were later rescued and compensated by the travel agency but there’s one caveat – the passengers can’t remember what happened during their time on the cruise. (I don’t know what this means?)
So what happened to our male lead during the one year period? His sister was brutally murdered by a serial killer and his mother eventually passed away due to heartache. He leaves everything behind him, armed with a passion to find the killer. He settles down as a repairman as it’s the only place of peace for him. Ah, I think I kinda get the story now. He time-travels to the past to find the killer before he kills his sister. Along the way, he and female lead get involved with many cases. He’s the dark clouds and she’s the bright moon shining over him.
Ok, did I fail? Anyone who has read the novel and has a better understanding of the timeline, feel free to help/correct me. Lol.
Twisted Fate of Love (今夕何夕) is adapted (or some would say) loosely inspired by the novel written by Shi Jiu. Our female lead is a strong, badass female general who’s sent back in time to stop a war from happening. Through her time-travel, she meets a pair of best friends – minister male lead and Third Prince second lead. Lol. And she, of course, becomes the source of inspiration and heartache for both as their friendship is tested. The nation is crumbling so will these three rise above personal feelings to protect the people?
Our leads share the same set of small teeth. heheh.
Upcoming republican suspense webdrama Psych-Hunter (心宅猎人) is adapted from the novel Haunted House Handbook (凶宅笔记) written by Er Shi San. The story follows our male lead, an enthusiastic tradesman in the business of selling haunted houses, his psychologist bro-mate who is searching for his missing dad, and a policewoman who is the sassy daughter of a warlord. A year ago, our male lead was invited to a remote island with six other individuals in a game of death and the only one to survive but he suffers from amnesia. Our psychologist receives a letter with a six-finger seal that shows a count down to our male lead’s time of death (!!) and a group photo. He’s determined to track down his father together with male lead’s special talents. They slowly become a great duo of real estate agents. They take over the haunted houses, get rid of its supernatural beings, then resell the houses. This leads to clues of the true mastermind behind the scene and a big conspiracy surrounding them.
I’m slightly confused about the storyline but it sounds really interesting! Will be subbed by Qiyi!
