Sorry, this post is a bit delayed, a little incidence happened and my presence was needed elsewhere after work. In any case, our girl turns the big 30 today! I’m sure she’s feeling the pressure from friends and families to find the special person and settle down but I do want her to know that she should go at her own pace. Some folks hurry into commitments and not take the time to explore and find happiness within themselves. You gotta love yourself first, before loving and allowing love to come into your life!
Hmmmm. This is one interesting drama, as I’m not sure what time period we are in anymore, what’s with robotic voices, magical eye colors, underwater fairies, and bubbles of life? After being back-stabbed by her own husband (Zhang Xiao Long), our heroine (Claudia Wang Li Kun) meets another man (Joe Cheng) whose power and love for her give her the needs to take revenge and rise to the empress seat. Legend of the Heavenly Tear is adapted from the novel, Incomparable Phoenix (凤凰无双) written by Bing Lan Sha.
Adapted from the novel, Incomparable Phoenix (凤凰无双) written by Bing Lan Sha, Legend of the Heavenly Tear stars Wang Li Kun and Joe Cheng as the main leads. The story follows our heroine (Wang Li Kun) as she’s back-stabbed by her revenge-driven husband (Zhang Xiao Long) and kicked out of the family, and then saved by our hero (Joe Cheng), ruler of Qi State (?). She gets a makeover and a new name for her “rebirth” and plots her way to the throne as Empress. That’s the bare bone of the plot. Now I will party and live life a littttle. 😉
Remember the Korean song playing in the background of the trailer? Yea. I was hesitant to click play. Good thing the music director didn’t go down that path again. They enlisted the help of Hawick Lau. The song title, 爱情曾来过, is hard for me to translate so anyone fluent in the language, please help. And if you have been reading AVV, A Wife’s Secret will begin airing on March 2nd. So there’s another week for you to mentally prepare. This baby ain’t short and sweet. I’m still deciding whether I want to upload this project….6-0…..o.o
Finally, I got something substantial from this project. The trailer, as seen from previous Cdrama trailers, are packed with tragedies, stabs, and tears! Do I need to remind you that it’s slated for 60 episodes? Did it change? Lordy. Why must you do this to me!
The 60-episode (gulp, gulp) drama has recently wrapped up filming. Part of me looks forward to its premiere (TBA) but the number of episodes is a daunting element that haunts me. STILL. Plus, it’s a melo….GAH. Anyway, I finally finished Female Prime Minister a few days ago without skipping an episode! Quite addicting during the marathon but slowly got killed by repetition and drag. Now I wish she could film a modern drama with Chen Xiao. Pwease!
Apparently, the word ‘rest’ doesn’t register in Mainland actors, as Zhao Li Ying hops from Ji Xiang Tian Bao to her latest modern drama with Yang Mi’s boyfriend, Hawick Lau. The tentative title is A Wife’s Secret (妻子的秘密) and let’s all hope for something saucy and scandalous. heh. It’s also a reunion with Zhao Li Ying and her Legend of Mermaid‘s co-stars, Kenny Kwan and Allen Ting.
