The trailer looks pretty intense! Who’s the lucky guy in dramaland right now? Zheng Ye Cheng! Wooing An Yue Xi in Let’s Shake It 2 and Janice Wu Qian next week in An Oriental Odyssey (盛唐幻夜)! Both tops the adorable list.
Read about this and thought it was interesting casting of the week. Nodame Cantabile is a manga by Tomoko Ninomiya and has been adapted as live-action television dramas by Japan (with Hiroshi Tamaki and Juri Ueno) and Korea (with Joo Won and Shim Eun Kyung) and now it’s China’s turn to dip its toes in the franchise. Now called Cantabile Youth (让全世界都听见), the main leads are Zhang Xin Cheng of My Huckleberry Friends and Lin Yun of Battle Through The Heaven. I personally haven’t finished either version but have heard of numerous praises for the Japanese version, for capturing and meshing the quirkiness of its characters and classical music seamlessly.
From the past week ~
As we have said before. Solid casting. An official trailer was dropped three days ago and here I’m talking about it now. See how fast I am these days with news? Tang Wei‘s drama comeback is Empress of the Ming with actor Zhu Ya Wen, and the story follows their love story of 50 years, first as best friends (grew up together) before they don the royal robes – she as Empress Xiaogongzhang and he as Emperor Xuande, the fifth emperor of the Ming dynasty. You will see plenty of familiar faces in the trailer such as Qiao Zhen Yu, Lay (as Emperor Yingzong of Ming), Yu Hao Ming (Zhu Gaoxu, later the Prince of Han), just to name a few.
This post has been delayed for so long. *_*
Can we go ahead and give the title of Melo Queen to Sun Yi? After Siege In Fog, she’s back in another melo drama to wrench out some more tears, with Wallace Chung and Ma Tian Yu at her side. All Out of Love, adapted from novel Liang Sheng Wo Men Ke Bu Ke Yi Bu You Shang will hit your small screen on 9/17!
Every darn production is just gonna air now…

Due to an incident, he disappears from the world for 8 years, returning to find his dad beat up and admitted to the hospital. After delivering his brand of punishment to the deserved people, the nurses fall for his charms and upon meeting our female lead, the cop in charge of the case, they butt heads immediately. Doesn’t help that she discovers his involvement with a case from 8 years ago and is determined to uncover more dirt about him.
