Brotherhood of Blades: Shadow of Mountain and River (绣春刀山河之影) is touted as the drama adaptation of movie Brotherhood of Blades with Sun Yi, Zhang Yun Long, and Chen Ruo Xuan. The story our two male characters. Up first is Zhang Yun Long who comes from a lowly background but due to a confusion, becomes a member of the Imperial Secret Police known as the Embroidered Uniform Guards. On the outside, he appears to be selfish and well-spoken, but deep down he’s honest and treasures brotherhood. Chen Ruo Xuan is an original guard; aloof and lacks good speech (lol). The two meet and are pulled into many cases and hatred that runs deep in the court.
A Female Student Arrives at the Imperial College (国子监来了个女弟子) is adapted from the novel written by Hua Qian Ci and follows our female lead – daughter of a high-ranking official as she accepts a bet to make the most popular young master (our male lead – Xu Kai Cheng) in town to accept her invitation to the lantern festival. If she loses, she’s to become a performer during the festival. What she thinks is an easy task turns out to be much more challenging. She is turned away each time she tries to visit the Yan’s manor. With her father’s insistence, the Emperor grants her permission to become the first female disciple of the Imperial College, where our male lead is currently attending. She, along with her childhood best friend (played by Ren Hao), set out to turn the prestigious academy upside down.
Lu Si looks so cute I might give this a try. XD Light & fluffy~
See You Again (再见那一天) is an upcoming drama with a heavier topic. Our male lead played by Li Guang Jie accidentally kills someone while on the mission to kill/hurt his sister’s assaulter and is then sentenced to life imprisonment. The only friend who comes to visit him is police officer played by Hu Jun and because of his good behavior, he’s released from prison early. Life during and after prison proves hard to a man with a tainted past but our male lead is lucky and finds himself working for a funeral shop owner, who also has a checkered past. A little light and humanity shine on our group of friends.
Cute Programmer (程序员那么可爱) is an upcoming rom com following the life of our heroine as she falls in love with a genius (again?) programmer and follows his footsteps to becoming a programmer herself. However, after graduation, she finds out his company only hires male programmers (why?), thus she disguises as a man to join. Hiding her identity proves hard and so the two agree to be a contract couple.
None of the stills has her in disguise at all. Lol.
Airing 9/10~ You can read the comics it’s based on here.
