A little behind but I finally laid eyes on the first set of stills for the new adaptation of Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils. I’m so jaded now. Looking at new adaptations of Jin Yong’s novels nowadays, I can’t help but sneeze out a laughter. I’m happy for some of the actors you know, being able to breathe life into some iconic characters, but at the same time, there’s a feeling of miscast as well. I know, too early to say.
Listening Snow Tower is a wuxia novel written by Cang Yue, first book in a trilogy. The name of the series stands for the name of the manor in the novel, a famous assassinating organization led by our enigmatic hero – Xiao Yi Qing (actor Qin Jun Jie), who is on a quest to rule jianghu and has built the place on blood and tears. Standing by his side is his beloved person Shu Jing Rong (actress Yuan Bing Yan), who is tied to him with the promise that she will only serve someone who can beat her. Unfortunately, the cold and unbending hero is laden with an incurable disease and his life could end anytime. Likewise, she’s distrustful of everyone around her. It’s an epic romance between two extraordinary people and how they think those around them don’t end up…well….alive.
A line of them?! Well, at least that means we each can pick a favorite…without fighting. 8D
Never thought there would be a day where I can’t remember the names of pretty people. This amount of pretty young stars in one drama should be illegal! Super Star Academy I (超星星学园) is a star-launching vehicle for a truckload of new faces in the showbiz, most of them are singers and rookies. In this parallel universe, one’s super power is based on their horoscope sign. Interesting. Our heroine is shunned when she was a child so when invitation from the prestigious Star Academy arrives, she readily agrees, not knowing it’s the first step of awakening her own powers. She also meets and befriends the numerous heirs in the said exclusive school, forming friends and enemies along the way.
This sounds like Harry Potter and his adventures in Hogwarts. Yunno, the kitty version. Lol.
