Following To Be a Better Man, and Mr. Right, Mr. Fighting is the third drama in the Mister series of the same team. Deng Lun plays a star falling out of favor and is suddenly abandoned by his manager of ten years. He lands in the hands of a new team, consisting of folks outside of the entertainment business (lol). He has no choice but to stick with them to find out what really happened to his old manager. As he literally tumbles in steps with his new team, he gradually becomes a better person, learning dignity, courage, and responsibility. Sandra plays his assistant but her real job is marketing for a supermarket. Sounds helpful…she is promoting stuff. Heh!
Mr. Fighting (加油你是最棒的) to air on 7/31!
The Legends is still on my watch list so for those who did watch it, Arsenal Military Academy reunites the two leads, Xu Kai and Bai Lu, in a republican setting. Reminds me a little bit of Mulan as our female lead cuts her hair and disguises as a male to attend a military school, where she tries to overcome her weaknesses and proves herself as a worthy comrade. Of course, our male lead and the quiet second male lead are in the same school as well.
Bai Lu looks very handsome with the boy hair! Xu Kai is pretty hot. Lol. Maybe I need to watch Legends ASAP!
To air on 8/6!
This is interesting. Jade Dynasty (诛仙) is the movie version of the novel we have seen adapted into the small screen before. Remember….The Legend of Chusen with Li Yi Feng, Zhao Li Ying, and Yang Zi? Well. Here ya go, the condensed version. Lol. It stars some popular and pretty faces with the current Xiao Zhan from the drama The Untamed, Li Qin as Lu Xue Qi, singer Meng Mei Qi as Bi Yao, and Tang Yi Xin replaying her role from the drama version as the first love. xD
Another Shawn Dou’s drama! Even if it’s not the one many were anticipating… Lol.
Modern drama See You Again (时间都知道), adapted from Sui Hou Zhu’s novel, stars Tang Yan, Shawn Dou, and Yang Shuo. The story is still confusing the hell out of me. Our 31-year-old heroine encounters an accident during a plane ride and is
transported seemingly in a dream where she’s traveled back 10 years and is in college, where she meets her fiancé (Shawn) and begins courting him knowing their future together. In the long-running dream, she also tries to cure her ailing mother, guide her best friend on a better road, and finally find happiness with Shawn. However, he dies during an accident saving someone. Heart-broken, she decides to go forward in time by taking the same flight that causes the original plane accident. She wakes up and sees her husband safely by her side….
This confusing plot begins playing before your eyes on 7/16.
Go Go Squid or Stewed Squid With Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a sweet novel written by Mo Bao Fei Bao. On the other hand, the story doesn’t seem up to their acting caliber, described as a gentle and an easy read, some comments even go as far as saying it’s forgettable after a hearty laugh, but likable characters and setups. The heroine is described as a genius 19-year old student with high IQ and low EQ, who is also a famous anime cosplay person and sings well. She’s struck by love at first sight with the male lead, who is a game genius in the e-sports world and never pays attention to the girls.
Go Go Squid begins airing on July 9th!
