Sneak Peek of Xiao Zhan and Wu Xuan Yi in drama adaptation of Dou Luo Continent (Soul Land)

Dou Luo Continent is an adaptation of the Chinese web novel of the same title written by Tang Jia San Shao. As I read the synopsis, it sounds like beginning of The Untamed as our male lead also goes through a rebirth. Our hero is Tang San, considered a prodigy in the Tang Sect, a sect specializing in poisons and weapons. He commits suicide after entering the forbidden place for inner sect disciples and gaining the knowledge of the Sect. He feels guilty and kills himself, but is reborn in Soul Land (title of the novel), with his memories intact (dun, dun, dun). In the new land, he is raised by an alcoholic father and remains tenacious in mastering new skills. In Soul Land, each individual possesses an innate spirit, which one can cultivate and strengthen, becoming a Spirit Master, a well-regarded profession. Our hero has two. There’s an anime version of novel, which I’m interested to check out. The spirit master element reminds me of Jiro Wang’s Rakshasa Street, which also has an anime.

The drama was filmed a while ago so I was surprised there’s no news of it until the Untamed stirred the pot of popularity for Xiao Zhan. HA!

My Story For You: Zheng Shuang goes through thick and thin with Luo Jin

The first official trailer is dropped and My Story For You with Zheng Shuang and Luo Jin feels very different from your usual overly dramatic Chinese modern dramas. It’s hard for me to stomach 90% of modern Cdramas or should I say the mainstream ones with popular actors and actresses. It tends to drag on for a thousand of dog-blood years before reaching an abrupt end. Lol. Maybe because it’s based on a writer’s personal love story with his wife, so he was able to work with the team to create the atmosphere he wanted. I do like what I see ~

Here’s the first peek at the styling of our OTP in Love The Whole World (为了你,我愿意热爱整个世界), the drama adaptation of the novel written by Tang Jia San Shao about his own uplifting love story with his wife. In the bustling, modern world, their romance hopes to give the younger generation a new, positive look at true love, how to hold each other hand and walk through the obstacles of life.

His love spans over a course of 16 years, from when he was an unemployed individual to a successful writer in his own right. While Luo Jin is in perfect hair and clothing, they decided to give Zheng Shuang a boyish cut in baggy clothes. She still looks cute…but I find it upsetting, like they always seem to downgrade the heroine’s look the majority of the time!
