Two more dramas for September!
Quite a few dramas started filming today! Happy Monday folks!
Li Ying is making a comeback after having her first child! Legend of Fei (有翡) is based on the novel You Fei/Bandits (有匪) written by Priest. It sounds like your typical wuxia drama that takes place during the Northern and Southern dynasties (?), where legends have fallen to the chaotic world, allowing room for the new rising heroes of the pugilistic world, some of which are our leading lady and man, Zhou Fei (Zhao Li Ying) and Xie Yun (Wang Yi Bo). Our female lead grew up in a neutral zone where there is no war, known collectively as the 48 tribes, so she leads a pretty peaceful life. That changes when her father is invited to join the Southern region, and she is forced to enter jianghu shortly after. Our male lead is an optimist, who knows a lot about the world because he has basically done a lot of jobs. His expertise? Running away and talking his way in/out of things (Lol). During our female lead’s journey, he is there to help her as she slowly becomes a hero in her own right.
As I read through the reviews of this novel, a lot of them describes the writing of Priest as draggy and there’s a lack of romantic scenes between the leading couple.
I only know one half of the equation (pairing) so I can’t judge much but reading everyone’s positive reviews about The Untamed makes me feel slightly better about this pairing.
Adapted from yet another novel is And The Winner is Love (月上重火), based on the novel written by Jun Zi Yi Ze. It stars Luo Yun Xi and Chen Yu Qi in the leading roles. With unmatched beauty, our female lead is the young master of Chonghuo Palace who leaves her sect to experience jianghu. She chances upon her our male, Shang Guan Tou, who is the elegant and refined master of Yueshang Valley. They become friends and help each other along the way; their journey made difficult because our female lead is banished from her sect when the treasured martial arts manual goes missing. She makes it her mission to find the thief. Eventually, the thief is said to have mastered the powerful skills and is wreaking havoc in jianghu. Our leads do get married (!!) and the thief turns out to be someone from within.
I like how the title reveals the type of ending. Lol.
When you’re not watching anything, this feature can slip by for weeks and months. Lol. I have been in the longest drama slump since Princess Agents. I really need a thrilling adventure drama or an epic sweeping romance right now. So what are you guys watching these days? This dry squid would like to know. 😭
Quite a few modern dramas coming out this week and the last. The list keeps growing!
