Feng Shao Feng, Peng Xiao Ran, and Zhu Zheng Ting get entangled in Shining Just For You

Shining Just For You (星河长明) is adapted from the novel written by Zhan An (novel name is Novoland: The Princess From Plateau (九州·朱颜记)  and it looks like another twisted love story. The story follows eighth princess (Cheng Xiao Meng) of the Ye Bei clan and her close friend (our female lead, Peng Xiao Ran) who is shunned because she is considered an outsider. In order to attack Ye Bei, Emperor Gao of Chao Kingdom (male lead) devises a plan to give him a good excuse; he proposes a marriage to eighth princess knowing that she would reject, thus giving him a reason to attack. To save her relatives and the kingdom, eighth princess jumps to her death over a cliff. The Ye Bei clan suffers greatly, leading to their destruction. Our female lead swears to take revenge for her best friend and Ye Bei clan, thus she creates a new identity and enters the palace to assassinate the king. Her failing attempts stir interests in the King and he slowly falls in love with her. Our heroine is moved but her loyalty to her friend didn’t allow betrayal. SPOILER: She continues to plot and eventually the Chao Kingdom falls and the King dies. Not sure how…but if this synopsis remains true in the drama, fans are doomed for tears!

Airing 11/30!

Zhao Lu Si and Chen Zhe Yuan wrapped up filming for romance drama Hidden Love

Hidden Love (偷偷藏不住) is adapted from the novel written by Zhu Yi. Going through the novel reviews, it looks like a sweet romance. Our heroine has frequent parents meeting and in order to avoid troubles, she enlists the help of her older brother but since they are like cat-and-dog, she turns to her brother’s friend (our male lead) instead. From then on, they become friends but he only looks at her like a younger sister. And he should because he’s 7 years older than her (not sure about the drama). He’s a university student and she’s a middle school girl harboring a small crush on this new friend. BUT their romance doesn’t start until she becomes a college student in the city he’s in. Phew.

Adorable Tian Xi Wei finds love with Bai Jing Ting in New Life Begins

Synopsis from Viki: Beautiful women from all over what is now China have traveled from their hometowns to the Xinchuan court for a special event: The ruling family will decide which of these young women has what it takes to marry the six male heirs of the family. Among this collection of women is Li Wei (Tian Xi Wei). She is an unassuming, unpretentious, and somewhat culturally awkward individual who has little interest in this “contest.” She would prefer to get on with her life and live a quiet, peaceful life in her hometown.

But, to her surprise, she is selected to marry one of the young heirs – Yin Zheng (Bai Jing Ting). A quiet, gentle, intelligent, and somewhat introverted young man, he is arguably the least-favored among the heirs. As such, his marriage is a mere afterthought to the Xinchuan rulers. They shunt him to the fringes of the court and charge him with menial tasks. At first, this union appears doomed. But after they start to get to know each other, Yin Zheng and Li Wei begin to form a close bond. Could their slowly growing romance help them form a relationship that could help them improve the lives of the ordinary folk of the realm?

Lighter and Princess with Chen Fei Yu and Zhang Jing Yi to premiere in November

Lighter & Princess (点燃我温暖你) is adapted from the novel written by Twentine. It is a story about the passions of youth and the cruelty of time and people’s hearts. On the outside, our female lead, Zhu Yun is your typical poster child of a well-behaved, obedient student. She grew up under the strict supervision of her parents and strives to do well in school as to not disappoint them. But deep down, Zhu Yun is secretly rebellious and has quite the sarcastic tongue. She would have followed her parents’ set path for her had she not met the outwardly rebellious male lead, Li Xun, who attracts her attention on their first day of school with his bright golden hair and devil-may-care attitude. He’s loud about his lawless ways and even if Zhu Yun curses him under her breath, she can’t help but slowly falls for his hidden intelligence and talents. He has her wrapped around his fingers for sure. 😛 She believes in him and stays by his side through all their ups and downs, even during and after the separation arc (6 years).

Aww our boy is growing up so fast! Ever Night was one of the two dramas I finished 2 years ago. Lol.
