Next Stop Your World (下一站你的世界) is adapted from the Korean drama W with Han Hyo Joo and Lee Jong Suk which aired in 2016. The story follows our female lead who finds herself in her father’s webtoon, meeting and falling in love with the main character.
Not sure what the production is doing here, I’m scratching my head at their barely-there approach to promoting this drama. Coming from a highly popular Kdrama, the weibo home page has exactly 2 trailers and 2 posters. Lol. Is it because each episode is only around 10-11 minutes long so they don’t think it’s worth to foot out the money for advertisements? Hoping it would be a sleeper hit type of drama?
A League of Nobleman is adapted from the novel written by Da Feng Gua Guo, starring Boran Jing and Song Wei Long. It is an ancient detective novel, many calling it similar to Sherlock. One of our leads is Zhang Ping (Song Wei Long), a poor scholar who becomes a successful candidate in the imperial examination and later designated as a country magistrate. Due to his sharp observational skills, he solves many murder cases and eventually appoints a prime minister. During his journey to the capital to take the imperial exam, he meets our other male lead, an elegant Minister of Rites (Boran Jing) and saves his life. From then on, two people with different backgrounds join hands and go through many life-and-death situations together.
Began airing 1/30~
P.S: It is NOT a BL drama. The author tagged the novel as non-romance. Also, the drama screenwriter changed a lot of stuff so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The Last Immortal (Shen Yin, 神隐) is adapted from the novel written by Xing Ling. It’s the sequel to Ancient Love Poetry with Xu Kai and Zhou Dong Yu. Male lead, Yuan Qi (Wang An Yu) is their son. Our heroine, A Yin (Zhao Lu Si), has reincarnated for the 27th time. Each time she dies, she would remember all her past lives and stew about her early-death fate in each reincarnation. Upon reaching the Nai He Bridge to get justice for her constant bad luck, she’s told there are two possible explanations: 1) She has offended a big figure in the God Realm, or 2) She’s the Big Figure herself.
I haven’t had time to check out the novel so… if you know spoilers, let me know. hehe.
