Xing Fei is a busy girl, jumping from one drama to another. Her last drama to air was Forget You Remember Love, a remake of popular Taiwanese drama Princes Turns to Frog wrapped up filming last month. Did anyone happen to catch it? I love the original too much to want to watch the new one. Lol. That is my 14-year old self talking to you guys, who also holds the ring of true love in her fan collection. xD *embarrassed*
Happy Friday! I hope everyone is doing well in this unprecedented period. My mom is becoming a professional chef at home with her best friend, youtube. Every day, it’s ma and her four little 🐖🐖🐖🐖 + 🐷 (pa)
Scroll all the way down for an upcoming group streaming activity of a very popular drama!
Novoland: Pearl Eclipse (九州·斛珠夫人) is adapted from the novel written by Xiao Ru Qin and stars Yang Mi and William Chan. The novel is a bit creepy since he is much older than her, took her in and raised her, then they develop feelings for each other. Plus, he’s a powerful eunuch. BAH. I’m sure the drama will change that up. Lol. Anyway, in the drama she plays daughter of the merfolks and her entire village and people are slaughtered due to the people’s obsession with pearls and pearls were created from merfolk’s tears. During this uncertain period, our heroine is taken in by the hero who is a powerful official of the imperial court, and she disguises as a male disciple by his side. After they return to the capital, the job of guarding the King is given to her. And he’s the third leg of this love triangle. The King has long given up on his court, exhausted by the internal and external turmoils, therefore he sits back and watches our male lead’s struggle to save the country. When he finds out his pretty guard is a girl, his feelings complicate everything.
Another esports cdrama! The last one was a solid good hit, The King’s Avatar, with Yang Yang as the main character. Falling Into Your Smile (你微笑时很美) is adapted from the novel written by Qing Mei starring Xu Kai and Cheng Xiao as the main leads. She plays a simple girl who turns to gaming for her (ex) boyfriend. Alas, they were not meant to be. Naturally good at gaming, she is invited to be the first female teammate in a famous e-sports team. And that is where she meets our witty male lead who has a poisonous tongue; who is also the team leader. Ha! Their love grows slowly as they train, interact, and live under the same roof as a team with other players.
Dear Uniform (亲爱的戎装) is a modern drama adapted from the novel written by Zhe Zhi Ma Yi, so it’s not a remake of hit Korean TV series, Descendants of the Sun. It stars Huang Jing Yu as a military officer describes like an ice mountain and Li Qin plays a gentle military medic. Our male lead doesn’t care about romance or anything else and is basically 100% driven by work. Our female lead has been hurt by love before and she’s the pearl in her parents’ hands (they’re wealthy, and she doesn’t want others to be affected by her status). But she can stand on her own (whew). However, her decision to be a doctor in the military angers her dad and he refuses to acknowledge her for a short period. Mom is the softer one and helps her out with one “last favor” by asking her friend for help on finding a living place. Turns out, the friend lets our heroine move into the house where her son stays when he’s not living in the military dorms. Hehe. The mothers totally planted this seed! How did they meet? She’s showering (in his fancy bathroom!) when she hears the door creaks. And that is their first impression. HEHE. They begin to get close when she has a bad night after bumping into her ex-boyfriend and our hero agrees to be her ears for the night. Soon, she ends up saving one of his comrades, and our male lead begins to look at our gentle, sunny doctor in a new light. Their love story is described as gentle but does not lack sweetness and passion. From reviews, the second male lead is equally if not more complex than our male lead, given his circumstance and situation. Ohhhh. I shouldn’t spoil all the fun right? Ok.
Huang Jing Yu is probably one of the few actors who looks like he can pack a punch in our batch of oh-so-pretty young actors. I’m excited for this collaboration!
