Yay! Finally! Even though this isn’t my cup of tea, I’m happy for those of you who had been waiting for it to air! The OTP – Han Dong Jun and Sun Yi – look mighty angsty and oh so pretty! As a matter of fact, the whole cast is pretty ~
Hai Tang Jing Yu Yan Zhi Tou (海棠经雨胭脂透) is an upcoming republican series that is not focused on spies but make-up factory back in the days and the messy love triangle between two brothers and a beautiful girl. Li Yi Tong (Legend of the Condor Heroes 2016) and Deng Lun (Princess Agents) are the ultimate OTP but elder brother Ying Hao Ming will throw many wrenches to separate them. I have been meaning to write about this drama but the production was being so cheap with stills as weeks turned into months with nothing but fan-taken photos. The frustration was real. Lol. Now, they are starting to trickle out quality photos so yay for that.
Not fond of the crazy storyline but they look so cute….
In the latest extended trailer for Siege in Fog (迷雾围城), we go inside the heroine (Sun Yi)’s mind as she broods over her ill-fated marriage life with one very obsessive man (Elvis Han Dong Jun), while she harbors feelings for another seemingly heroic guy (Jeremy Tsui). For some odd reason, I really, really love this extended trailer. Crazy moments still take place but the trailer has adopted a calming, melancholic tone throughout the whole 9 minute. However, it never falters in the intensity of each stirring scene. We see more sides of Han Dong Jun’s crazy love for Sun Yi and how her resistance slowly slips away under his dashing good looks and undying devotion through it all. I also love the wide shots of the filming sets – they are gorgeous, along with the detailed and vibrant colors of each costume. *swoons*
Wow. The levels of women power in this drama is no joke. From the same team that brought us Legend of Zhen Huan (Empresses In The Palace), The Legend of Mi Yue features a solid line-up with Sun Li, Liu Tao, Jiang Xin, Ma Su, Alex Fong, Huang Xuan, and Gao Yun Xiang. They are expected to stir up a storm this Christmas. Are you ready to give up your presents and gift-wrapping time to pull some hair (hopefully not your own)?
Oh! I like the premise of this movie. A hotshot psychiatrist (Huang Xiao Ming) is assigned to provide medical treatment for a highly violent and intelligent psychopath (Sean Lau), who is locked up after murdering his wife. When he refuses treatments and lapses again, what could our psychiatrist do to protect himself and his beloved daughter? Newbie director David Lee will helm the psychological thriller under the wings of director/screenwriter Derek Yee (The Great Magician, One Night in Mongkok, Protégé). The story is written/co-directed by Lee Kuan Yew, and the production crew has been reworking the scripts since 2008. Such dedication! I’m excited to see the final results.
