PEACHHHHHHH!! Lolol. Your couple is front news! hee! Everyone should love this post since it’s all about pretty and kindness! I forgot who said this quote, but doing charity only has a beginning, it never ends. There was no crazy fashion tonight, everyone looks good with what they chose and for once I’m a happy camper with Li Ying’s stylist (I’m more picky with her! xD)
I was preparing for bed until I saw the onslaught of updates on news sites. Turns out it’s Qixi Festival aka Chinese Valentine’s Day! Drama productions release new stills to celebrate the annual meeting of two (tragic) lovers, the tale of Zhi Nu and Niu Lang’s forbidden love as the cowherd and weaver girl in Chinese mythology. I’m sure we have at least watched one adaptation of this story.
You might drown in the stills so I focus mostly on ancient dramas….for now. Lol.
First character stills are out and they look more moody and serious than the first few chapters that I have read of the novel. Of course, they don’t shoot in order of happenings but they are pretty stills nonetheless. Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost (香蜜沉沉烬如霜) stars Yang Zi, Deng Lun, Luo Yun Xi, and Chen Yu Qi.
New promotional materials. Both Wu Xin The Monster Killer Season 2 and The Destiny of White Snake release an extended trailer of 10 whopping minutes. And finally, an air date for one of the two above dramas!
First peek at the styling for drama Heavy Sweetness Ash-Like Frost is out! The costumes range from simple colors to gorgeous details, which I think is an attribute to the simplicity of our heroine and the hero’s royal background. Yang Zi is becoming a workaholic now, hopping from one production to the next. Be careful of your health, Missy! Deng Lun is starting to lead more productions so he has to strike while it’s hot. A good thing I adore them together, from past productions to now. Great friends, they are, so it will be a great few months!
The stills we have seen so far are mostly bubbly and very cute but the latest batch shows that angst and heartbreak is in store for our love birds. The Destiny of White Snake features Chusen package deal (Yang Zi, Ren Jia Lun, Shu Chang, and Mao Zi Jun) in hopefully their last collaboration for a while. Don’t get me wrong, I love these people but I would like to see them work with…like OTHER PEOPLE TOO! Seems like it is a new story and not a remake after all. A cultivating doctor saves a little white snake and she gathers enough cultivation power to become human. They grow close and to help him become a celestial being she breaks a heavenly seal, accidentally releasing chaos and destruction to the human world. To save the world, she sacrifices herself and our doc also disintegrates. Many years pass by and they are reunited with their memories returned. But to be together is going against the norm. Monk Fa Hai is also awakened and his rivals-turned-lovers story with Green Snake doesn’t bear a happy ending.
The new adaptation of the classic Chinese legend Madam White Snake featuring Yang Zi and Allen Ren Jia Lun is officially called The Destiny of White Snake (天乩之白蛇传说). I don’t see the fantasy and mythical element yet from the new stills but maybe they’re keeping her snake form hidden from us on purpose! The styles are very simple and colors pleasant to the eyes.
