Hou Lang (后浪) is an upcoming drama with Zhao Lu Si and Luo Yi Zhou. It focuses on Chinese traditional medicine. Our heroine is in her twenties and lives a lonely life without her parents. She has no care for the past or the future. In an incident where she speaks up for the troubled, she’s aided by a professor of Chinese Medicine (Wu Gang) who later learns of her background and takes her under his wings. She starts anew and becomes a student in his Chinese medicine course, where his son (Luo Yi Zhou) constantly collides with her. Under the Professor’s guidance, the students find a new direction in their lives and the Professor also comes up with new ideas.
I had to do research on Luo Yi Zhou because I did not recognize him. He’s part of boy band IXFORM which was formed after Youth With You 3. I have seen some clips of his dancing, which is really good. Acting-wise, he’s in Central Academy of Drama Class of 2018, alongside of Jackson Yee, Hu Xian Xu (Hikaru no Go), and Li Lan Di. He’s brand new so good luck to him! Scoring a fun-loving partner like Lu Si and a veteran acting powerhouse in Wu Gang is a pretty sweet deal.
“Tomb of the Sea“《沙海》is a sequel to the popular 2015 series, “The Lost Tomb”, and based on a web novel taking place several years after the events of the first series, though with new actors. It stars Wu Leo (“Nirvana in Fire”) as a loser high school student who is suddenly kidnapped and taken to the desert to help locate a mysterious, forbidden city.
And it’s official. Yang Rong‘s co-stars continue to be younger and younger. xD Her next project puts her alongside Leo Wu Lei in Kennedy Xu’s novel, Sand Sea (Sha Hai 沙海). He’s turning 18 this year… Novel series Sand Sea I think takes place 10/15 years after The Lost Tomb and stands independently with four volumes, three of them revolves around the main character Li Cu played by Wu Lei (who’s been confirmed since June of this year.)
This is fast. Ice Fantasy Destiny (幻城凡世) is the modern spinoff starring Feng Shao Feng in a CEO role as he unlocks memories and powers of his Ice Prince past, with actress Zhang Yu Qi as the leading female, followed by little brother Ma Tian Yu and his lady love, Alina Zhang. It is premiering on qq on March 8th, for those who are still interested in their modern selves with money and super powers. How unfair life is. Lol.
Why a spinoff? Because 62 episodes isn’t enough to tell the story? Cdramas, we need to talk about the new lengths you guys are reaching for in terms of dragging out storylines! The next downside is removing the female lead and replacing her with a new face. That never ends well with original fans. Ice Fantasy Destiny (幻城凡世) is the modern spinoff starring Feng Shao Feng in a CEO role as he unlocks memories and powers of his Ice Prince past, with actress Zhang Yu Qi as the leading female, followed by little brother Ma Tian Yu and his lady love, Alina Zhang.
Thanks for everyone for participating last time! I think this post will just be my random spazzing of everything under the sun, so feel free to rave and rant about anything and everything, and who knows you might find that one person who shares the same opinion. =D
