Jun Jiu Ling with Peng Xiao Ran and Jin Han announces broadcast date

Jun Jiu Ling (君九龄) is an upcoming ancient drama based on the novel by Xi Xing. The story follows our female lead, daughter of the former Crown Prince, a princess who studies medicine to help cure her father, but unfortunately he dies anyway. She’s married off and later discovers that her uncle, the Current Emperor, was the mastermind behind her father’s death. When she tries to kill him, she’s killed off. Her soul is then transmigrated into the body of an orphaned girl, Jun Zhen Zhen, who also has problems on her end which is solved by the witty new soul. Turns out, Zhen Zhen’s arranged marriage to the Ning’s family was not honored, so she wanted to hang herself in front of their manor but ended up dying for real (O.O! At least this novel explains where the original soul went). However, that’s the novel version. In the drama version, to go around the body-soul problem, our princess is saved by a physician and takes on another identity instead.

Airing 9/7~

Wu Jin Yan becomes My Bargain Queen with Lin Geng Xin

My Bargain Queen (我的砍价女王) is an upcoming romcom with the focus on negotiation? I think that’s the word. The synopsis sounds pretty random. Our heroine and her fiancé are set to marry, but he jilts her on their engagement day. With anger and frustration, she directs those emotions on the poor hotel manager, our hero. At that very moment, she notices her talents in negotiating and sets out to open her own negotiating company. Lol. I really don’t see how the connection happened here. XD Naturally, her work puts her in contact frequently with our hero and the two gradually grow closer. But then his business goes awry thanks to business partner’s evil plan, and the ex-fiancé returns as hero’s sister’s boyfriend. 😒

Began airing 9/3~

Xianxia drama Chong Zi releases first batch of character posters, led by Xu Zheng Xi and Yang Chao Yue

Chong Zi (重紫) is based on the novel written by Shu Ke. The story is almost identical to Hua Qian Gu, with the romance being between a highly-respected immortal male lead who takes in our innocent female lead born with the dark force, fated to join the dark side, as his disciple. She does not want to harm anyone but everyone takes turn to torture/harm her just because of her dark force. Her shifu wants to protect her and the world, but he struggles to do both. The difference that I found between this and HQG is that in here, there are multiple life times/reincarnations, so she does die a few times, even at the hands of the man she completely adores.
