Liu Hao Ran and Song Zu Er lead solid cast in Novoland: Eagle Flag

Well! After two months of filming, we finally have some posters to look at. Novoland: Eagle Flag (九州缥缈录) is the next drama set in the vast magical universe “Novoland”. The author, Jiang Nan, along with Jin He Zai (Tribes), is one of the original writers who created the universe and he has been working on the drama script with another person. I’m quite excited about this production since I’m fond of both of the leads, who are very young in dramaland: Liu Hao Ran is 20 this year and Song Zu Er (The Dark Lord) is only 19, same age as one of my bros. Lol. Eagle Flag follows the epic, sweeping story of three youths who found comfort in each other’s company during the vicissitudes of life and power struggles between empires, with Hao Ran playing a weak and sickly prince who is sent away….as a hostage in another land, where he meets a brave and untamed warrior (Chen Ruo Xuan) and a witty princess (Zu Er). Their story of struggle, growth, love, and friendship unleash into a heroic journey of sorts.

The hostage part sounds familiar to our dear Yan Xun? Because this is where Princess Agents novel writer picked up the threads for her main story. Lol.

183 Club reunites on stage with Prince Turned To Frog OST for Wang Ou

All the Feeeeeeeeeeeeels. Taiwanese drama The Prince Who Turns into a Frog was one of my favorite Twdramas growing up and I ship Chen Qiao En and Ming Dao with the burning passion of 10 suns when I was a teenager and well into my adulthood. But since they are adamant as good friends, my heart is satisfied and shall move on. With the exception of the leader of the group, the four members reunited on stage last night to surprise Angel Wang Ou, Ming Dao’s current partner on the show We Are In Love Season 3. They sang two songs from Prince Turned To Frog OST, she also sang and cried her heart out.

If that thing with many sharp teeth were chasing me, I wouldn’t look that calm and elegant. Lol.
