The Legend of Hao Lan is based on the life story of Queen Dowager Zhao, mother of Qin Shi Huang, first emperor of a unified China in 221 BC. 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~
I saw some clips on youtube and they really torture Jin Yan to no end. O_O!
Zhang Bin Bin is back on our screen! With the adorable Ariel Lin no less! But Juli is right in her observation that the whole vibe of this drama is similar to Prince of Lan Ling with her and Feng Shao Feng in 2013.
The new music video by Kym makes this drama look like it’s made for die-hard fans of Li Ying who has been starved of her OTP scenes in recent dramas because it’s loaded with sweet moments between her and Jin Han. Lol. He’s quite tall around her too so when he pulls her in for a hug, I just melt. Of course, all based on a 4-minute music video.
I thought this was simply a rom-com drama but Zheng Shuang is actually playing a robot who’s a nanny/assistant to an arrogant celebrity, played by Thai Actor God Itthipat Thanit. A love story between a robot and a human….we have seen plenty of those in Kdramaland this year. Lol. But of course this was filmed waaaaay earlier and released today.
Han Dong Jun is back onscreen in modern garbs! Plus, he’s alongside the capable Yang Zi Shan in a plot that has been done over and over again; a pair of deeply in love young adults who were torn apart by social status and financial differences, yet their hearts remain with each other for years and the heroine finally decides to pursue the man she chased away years later. I hope their acting and chemistry will elevate the drama into something memorable.
Haii it’s Maknae/Amy here! Just here to let everyone know that I will be recapping this series. I’m planning on releasing them after each week’s episodes has been released, so please await my recaps in the future!
