The stills are so beautiful. Pink and snow and blues. These two are no doubt very popular choices in costume dramas and here they are in the latest production, Happiness Over Two Lifetimes (两世欢). Chen Yu Qi plays a noble lady, daughter of a general, who is kidnapped on her way to a temple to rest/reflect. Upon waking up, her memory is gone and she escapes an arranged marriage by masquerading as a guy and becoming a constable in a local town, where she meets Yu Meng Long’s character, who was just assassinated and returned back under a new identity (memory intact). The two work together to unravel the deep political conspiracies within the palace.
Still no confirmed air date but with a new music video, perhaps this new remake will get a slot soon? Prettyyyy soon. Legend of the White Snake (新白娘子传奇) is based on the original 1992 version which starred Angie Chiu and Cecilia Yip, while the new version has Yu Meng Long and Ju Jing Yi. Both pretty people. I like the themesong up until the fast modern beats hit me. Lol.
Can we go ahead and give the title of Melo Queen to Sun Yi? After Siege In Fog, she’s back in another melo drama to wrench out some more tears, with Wallace Chung and Ma Tian Yu at her side. All Out of Love, adapted from novel Liang Sheng Wo Men Ke Bu Ke Yi Bu You Shang will hit your small screen on 9/17!
