Poor drama, the team is pretty self-aware on weibo, even listing the number of days Tears In Heaven has been shelved (1086 days). The drama is adapted from stepmother Fei Wo Si Cun‘s novel Variety Flowers At Seaside (剧海上繁花). The synopsis I wrote in 2017… Lol: Reporter Du Xiao Su (Li Qin) meets and falls in love with doctor Shao Zhen Rong (Zhang Yun Long), but his mother is passionately against their love. During his medical trip to the mountains, our doctor dies in a mudslide. To forget the pain of his death, our heroine works and works until exhaustion sends her to the hospital. All her suffering is witnessed by Lei Yu Zheng (Shawn Dou) and he silently helps her from the side, which provokes the wrath of our resident second female lead (Wang Rui Zi), who makes our heroine’s life at work harder. More scheming happens to make Yu Zheng’s company fall and with the support of Xiao Su, he makes a comeback and their misunderstanding is eventually cleared up.
Were the two just waiting to be reunited with Fei Wo Si Cun? Lol. They collaborated last in Too Late to Say I Love You in 2010. I can’t believe a decade has passed! Wang Hou Yu Sheng (往后余生) is a modern drama which follows the romance of two people torn apart by a secret from the past. We meet our heroine, who is a single mother raising a child with a heart disease. She spends all her money into medical bills, working multiple jobs and living frugally to pass by. Her days take a turn for the better when her child is selected to undergo surgical treatments for research by a cardiologist. When she meets the said doctor, he turns out to be our male lead, her lover from 7 years ago. Our couple’s romance begins when both were still in school; gentle, sweet, and innocent. The blooming love was terminated by our heroine when she discovered a horrifying secret in her mother’s diary, leaving our male lead in the blind, and thus he harbors resentment for her for the years to come. He thought he would be happy seeing her living in poverty and struggling to make ends meet. But he doesn’t, his heart breaks seeing her so exhausted, so drained.
He still loves her.
Together, they find their way back to each other through healing old wounds and answering questions.
Question for novel readers: (Someone spoil me please, the child is his? ML? )
It’s been a while since a trailer swept me off my feet and urged me to count down the days until it would finally be able to appear on my screen. Unsurprisingly, for those who know me, Goodbye My Princess based on Fei Wo Si Cun’s novel, Eastern Palace (东宫) was exactly this drama. A trailer that promised angst, two life times of suffering and an inevitable misery, what more could the tragedy lover in me want?
Things in dramaland change so fast, in the blink of an eye, Goodbye My Princess changes its fate of being shelved to immediately airing! I love how the female character looks and I’m very tempted to check it out. xD
Apparently, there’s no such thing as too late to air a drama! Novel-to-drama adaptation of Eastern Palace called Goodbye My Princess by Fei Wo Si Cun is set to air on 12/12! Have you guys noticed the new trend that fresh green faces are leading big productions lately? It’s a risky move but I really don’t mind.
Ohh, I’m very easy and these pretty stills are luring me into yet another drama adaptation of Fei Wo Si Cun‘s novel! I like that even though I have seen these two actors before, the costumes and hairstyles make them look very different and in a good way.
Alrighty guys, the finale is here and it’s a case of counting fallen bodies. Like, how many blood bags did they use to film this set of episodes? Are you happy with the finale? Sad? Disappointing? Mad? Let me us know!
