Their paths cross when one of her patients die and she’s the last person at the crime scene. He’s in charge of the case.

Synopsis from Qiyi: This historical drama is set in the turbulent land of Zichuan, where the clans of Zichuan and Sairong are engaged in intense warfare. Zichuan Xiu (played by Yang Xuwen), stationed at the border, returns to the capital with remarkable military achievements, bringing a momentary peace to his homeland. However, new challenges arise as Yang Minghua, a prominent court official with sinister intentions, launches a rebellion. Zichuan Xiu, along with his sworn brothers Di Lin (played by Liu Yuning) and Site Lin (played by Zhang Ming’en), takes action to eliminate the threat and restore tranquility to Zichuan. Yet, as the dust settles, the aggressive Sairong officially declares war on Zichuan. Amidst the flames of war, the three brothers venture far from their homeland to defend their territory, protect their loved ones, and strive for peace, composing a passionate and magnificent story.

Tan Song Yun and Hou Ming Hao begin filming for fantasy drama Xiao Yao

Xiao Yao (逍遥) is an upcoming fantasy romance drama that is not based on a novel! So rare. XD. In the ancient times, humans and demons have lusted after a sacred spring of jade wine. Tan Song Yun will be playing two roles, the titular role Xiao Yao is a normal, carefree girl who finds herself entangled in the valley of demons. Her other role with opposite personality is a ruthless princess. Neo is quite the busy bee lately, he just finished Fangs of Fortune, and now he’s in all black once again to play the King of Demons. Lol! The two cross path as our heroine turns the demon valley upside down while our hero is the protector of the very same place.

Liu Xue Yi, Wu Jin Yan, and Bi Wen Jun look melancholy in costume drama Kill Me Love Me

Kill Me Love Me (春花厌) is adapted from the novel written by Hei Yan. I took a look at the novel and it’s one twisted downhill ride. They would have to change quite a bit for the drama cause male lead is not likable/pretty toxic and doesn’t treat the female lead nice at all cause he’s in love with another girl for over a decade, who’s also the cause of female lead’s misery. There’s a clear distinction in class (owner/servant/rich/poor) and that’s how he will treat you. From young, our heroine was raised to become an assassin in a secret organization. She has no name and is assigned the number 43. She swallows her pride, her dignity, and everything else just to survive. As it turns out, male lead runs the cruel organization…

I thought I could root for the FL but she’s so passive and accepting of every misery thrown at her that it is hard to read. LXY looks so intensely good in here since he’s a Prince who also hops on a horse and goes to war that I might take a peak. Lol. I’m not that into toxic male leads but I know they are the rage nowadays.

First Official Posters for Fangs of Fortune with Hou Ming Hao, Chen Du Ling, and Cheng Xiao as filming wraps up

Previously known as The Story of Mystics, Fangs of Fortune (大梦归离) is adapted from the tales and myths in Classic of Mountains and Seas. Neo will be playing a demon lord Ying Long, which I’m gonna guess is modeled after the mythical dragon in control of rain and floods. He wants to die but doesn’t want to accept fate so is led down the path of rebirth.

The visual in this drama is pretty-pretty but it’s their BTS chemistry that is worth mentioning; dancing, singing, and playing around with Guo Jing Ming (one of the directors) too. They had a blast when it first snowed at Hengdian.

The Legend of Shen Li drops ending theme music video for Valentine’s Day

I’m excited for this! The last Li Ying’s drama I watched and finished was the questionable-production-but-I-love-the-cast Legend of Fei. Then Wild Bloom I have only managed to watch half of that drama. Lol. I’m not really a modern drama kinda person ya know. I have my reservations about Shen Li too; with Lin Geng Xin looking exactly like his not-my-favorite character in Princess Agents gave me multiple whiplashes. But I decided to be an adult (heh) and give this couple one more chance to woo me. XD

Zhang Bi Chen once again lends her voice for Li Ying’s drama! This is the 5th one so far. They have become very good friends throughout the years. 😀
