Apparently, there’s no such thing as too late to air a drama! Novel-to-drama adaptation of Eastern Palace called Goodbye My Princess by Fei Wo Si Cun is set to air on 12/12! Have you guys noticed the new trend that fresh green faces are leading big productions lately? It’s a risky move but I really don’t mind.
Another new adaptation of The Condor Heroes with a weird/misspelled title?! The New Version of the Candor Heroes (神雕侠侣) features two green faces in Tong Meng Shi (Colourful Bone, The Taosim Grandmaster) and Mao Xiao Hui (The Twin Flower Legend). We have seen Mr. Tong in a few projects but for Mao Xiao Hui, she’s pretty green so let’s hope that factor will help her ~
Are you ready to follow bespectacled Wang Kai as he rises through the ladder of smarts with Yang Shuo and Dong Zi Jian as his buddies? Like A Flowing River is based on the novel written by A Nai. Nick will play the lead character Song Yun Hui, who has great potentials and smarts but was born into a poor family and hence is discriminated against. During the period of Chinese economic reform in 1978, he took his chance and won a seat in college studying engineering technology. And thus begins the hard-working journey of a man against many difficulties to achieve dreams of his childhood and as such he also opens up new ambiguities in his life.
With 47 episodes, Like A Flowing River premieres on 12/10!
Okay, okay. This remake looks pretty decent! Abundant of real outdoor scenes with waterfalls, mountains, and trees. The girls are gorgeous to look at and like I said last time, Zhu Xu Dan as Zhou Zhi Ruo is stealing all my attention without breaking a sweat. She has that cold beauty vibes going for her and I’m a sucker for it. Lol. Our hero played by Zeng Shun Xi worries me a little because he only has one expression throughout the trailer. xD To be fair though, Wu Ji the character isn’t very expressive…
First peek at Yang Yang’s upcoming novel-to-drama adaptation of the popular work The King’s Avatar (全职高手) written by Butterfly Blue is out! Looks very similar in style to Just One Smile is Very Alluring, with the boys strutting together in unified arrogance. Lol. From the smiles, the whole experience is pretty unique in the modern filming realm.
Yumama is working his little lamb! After the success of the Story of Yanxi Palace, Wu Jin Yan is back in another palace drama, The Legend of Hao Lan. It’s based on the life story of Queen Dowager Zhao, mother of Qin Shi Huang, first emperor of a unified China in 221 BC. Of course with Yumama, a lot of things will differ…. According to the drama synopsis, our heroine was born into a prominent Zhao family but is targeted by her stepmother and loses everything. She’s bought by Lü Buwei (Nie Yuan) who then gifts her to Prince Yiren (Mao Zi Jun, yay! leading!), later King Zhuangxiang of Qin, who is held as a political hostage in the Kingdom of Zhao. The fight for power and love begins~
