Another Shawn Dou’s drama! Even if it’s not the one many were anticipating… Lol.
Modern drama See You Again (时间都知道), adapted from Sui Hou Zhu’s novel, stars Tang Yan, Shawn Dou, and Yang Shuo. The story is still confusing the hell out of me. Our 31-year-old heroine encounters an accident during a plane ride and is transported seemingly in a dream where she’s traveled back 10 years and is in college, where she meets her fiancé (Shawn) and begins courting him knowing their future together. In the long-running dream, she also tries to cure her ailing mother, guide her best friend on a better road, and finally find happiness with Shawn. However, he dies during an accident saving someone. Heart-broken, she decides to go forward in time by taking the same flight that causes the original plane accident. She wakes up and sees her husband safely by her side….
This confusing plot begins playing before your eyes on 7/16.
I can’t believe the last post of this series was in April! WHY? I’m sorry for the lack of updates. I have been so wicked with busy and personal life, it’s hard to stalk weibo news for drama updates. T_T What I did watch during my exercise sessions in the morning is an old TVB series called Angels of Mission with Charmaine Sheh, Sonjia Kwok, and Shirley Yeung. When I was younger, I loved this series and hated the ending, but now I dislike it and still hate the ending. LOL. The way the men and women treat each other in this series makes me lose hope in humanity and love. xD
In any case, just saw the trailer for live-action movie Mulan with Liu Yi Fei! Check it out after the jump!
Go Go Squid or Stewed Squid With Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a sweet novel written by Mo Bao Fei Bao. On the other hand, the story doesn’t seem up to their acting caliber, described as a gentle and an easy read, some comments even go as far as saying it’s forgettable after a hearty laugh, but likable characters and setups. The heroine is described as a genius 19-year old student with high IQ and low EQ, who is also a famous anime cosplay person and sings well. She’s struck by love at first sight with the male lead, who is a game genius in the e-sports world and never pays attention to the girls.
Based loosely on the Boy-love novel Mo Dao Zu Shi (魔道祖师) written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu, The Untamed in the drama adaptation features Xiao Zhan and Wang Yi Bo in a budding bromance instead. Go here to read more about the characters from the novel. Reading the synopsis of the story, reminds me a little bit of The Legends. Our main protagonist goes his own way to achieve immortality and creates his own demonic sect, which makes him hated by millions in the world for the chaos he created. The other sects/clans come together to kill him. The synopsis of the drama looks quite different from that of the novel. A lot of details are changed so tread carefully!
Awww, congratulations to the couple who will be having their wedding ceremony on 6/27 in Ireland! Today, photos of their wedding gifts to the guests were revealed online. It’s adorable and I’m happy for the couple. They seem low-key but steady.
The stills are so beautiful. Pink and snow and blues. These two are no doubt very popular choices in costume dramas and here they are in the latest production, Happiness Over Two Lifetimes (两世欢). Chen Yu Qi plays a noble lady, daughter of a general, who is kidnapped on her way to a temple to rest/reflect. Upon waking up, her memory is gone and she escapes an arranged marriage by masquerading as a guy and becoming a constable in a local town, where she meets Yu Meng Long’s character, who was just assassinated and returned back under a new identity (memory intact). The two work together to unravel the deep political conspiracies within the palace.
