Oopsie, another danmei novel turned drama and became a bromance drama instead. Winter Begonia (鬓边不是海棠红) is adapted from the novel written by Shui Ru Tian Er about the love story between a patriotic businessman and a talented opera performer, but in the drama version, they are close friends. Huang Xiao Ming plays the savvy businessman and Yin Zheng plays the opera performer, with Charmaine Sheh in the role of Ming’s wife. With the Japanese invasion in 1937, people from various arts and backgrounds gather together to protect the country and preserve the growing of arts.
Still no confirmed air date but with a new music video, perhaps this new remake will get a slot soon? Prettyyyy soon. Legend of the White Snake (新白娘子传奇) is based on the original 1992 version which starred Angie Chiu and Cecilia Yip, while the new version has Yu Meng Long and Ju Jing Yi. Both pretty people. I like the themesong up until the fast modern beats hit me. Lol.
Our Zhang Lieutenant from the The Mystic Nine is now a leading male in his own dramas. =)
Things in dramaland change so fast, in the blink of an eye, Goodbye My Princess changes its fate of being shelved to immediately airing! I love how the female character looks and I’m very tempted to check it out. xD
Where’s the time….
Happy to announce that the lovely group of members are back in the dungeon subbing for Season 2! Lol.
I shouldn’t have binge-watched some dramas because now I’m stuck in the agonizing wait for subs. Lol. I’m planning on watching the Zombie drama called Kingdom with Joo Ji Hoon and Bae Doo Na as you guys know I’m into horror related projects. hehe! Any recommendations for completed shows/movies/whatever?
