Some of our members are following this drama and were talking about the ending, so I figured I could take a look…then I stumbled on the hilarious edits made by fans of the Qin Jun Jie and Co. spitting blood. I couldn’t stop laughing. It made my day. The last time we spoke about the arts of blood-spitting was when Wallace Huo donated blood on the set of The Journey of Flower. Do you guys remember that post? It was in 2014!!
For the fun of it, let’s create a list of actor/actresses who can spit blood beautifully for the year-end awards. Heh.
Upcoming palace drama, Legend of The Phoenix (凤弈) stars Jones Xu and He Hong Shan. Our female lead is a dancer in a troupe invited to perform in the palace for the Empress Dowager’s birthday but she gets into trouble with a princess (played by Liu Min) and is luckily saved by our male lead, an advisor. She never forgets about him and two years later, she becomes a palace maid, working under the Queen. She attracts the attention of the King and grows feelings for the unforgettable man. Inadvertently, she also becomes involved in the power battles of the palace (as usual). XD
The two look pretty cute in the trailers so here’s to hoping!
Modern drama I Don’t Like This World, I Only Like You aka Le Coup De Foudre (我不喜欢这世界，我只喜欢你) is based on the short and sweet novel written by Qiao Yi (Joey), where the story is basically her own romance with her husband, written in short, interesting anecdotes from the time they meet in school, how they get separated, reunited, and finally married. She’s a bubbly and optimistic person while he’s the cold on the outside (poisonous tongue to boot) and warm in the inside.
It stars Janice Wu Qian and Zhang Yu Jian as leads.
What am I watching…. the horrendous news that have been plaguing the entertainment world? Korea, China, then Hong Kong. Who needs to watch dramas, the real life ones gut you right in the stomach, especially the Andy-Jacqueline scandal (!!). When one person worked so hard to get to stay by another person’s side and then went astray years later, how would their partner feel? I saw Sammi’s response and can’t help but think she and Kenneth Ma are some classy people. Both of them have every right to say what the hell they want, but they chose the higher road instead. Even if they were pressured to respond right away, they protected their partner.
Country: Korea Episodes: 16 EpisodeLength: 74 Minutes Genre: Romantic Comedy
Based on the popular webtoon, “Noona Fan Dot Com” by Kim Seng Yeon, this is the romantic story of a woman who dedicates her entire life to a celebrity only to be blindsided by her overbearing, handsome new boss who finds out about her fangirling of a younger pretty boy of the famous boy group called White Ocean. Seong Deok Mi is an art curator for a prestigious art museum during the day and the loyal manager of the pop idol Cha Si An’s fansite at night. She uses her business trips as excuses to catch glimpses of her Cha Si An, treasures her high-powered camera to capture the clearest picture of her prince charming only to photoshop his photos before publication, and goes on the fangirl version of a pilgrimage to holy places Cha Si An’s feet have walked upon. Her new boss, Ryan Gold, a genius artist from America who discontinued painting for mysterious reasons, clashes with Seong Deok Mi the first few times they interact, revealing the sexual tension behind all that “interacting.” Through Cha Si An and a coveted painting by an unknown painter, Ryan Gold and Seong Deok Mi become more connected outside of their professional lives.
It’s been a while since a trailer swept me off my feet and urged me to count down the days until it would finally be able to appear on my screen. Unsurprisingly, for those who know me, Goodbye My Princess based on Fei Wo Si Cun’s novel, Eastern Palace (东宫) was exactly this drama. A trailer that promised angst, two life times of suffering and an inevitable misery, what more could the tragedy lover in me want?
