Liu Xue Yi, Wu Jin Yan, and Bi Wen Jun look melancholy in costume drama Kill Me Love Me

Kill Me Love Me (春花厌) is adapted from the novel written by Hei Yan. I took a look at the novel and it’s one twisted downhill ride. They would have to change quite a bit for the drama cause male lead is not likable/pretty toxic and doesn’t treat the female lead nice at all cause he’s in love with another girl for over a decade, who’s also the cause of female lead’s misery. There’s a clear distinction in class (owner/servant/rich/poor) and that’s how he will treat you. From young, our heroine was raised to become an assassin in a secret organization. She has no name and is assigned the number 43. She swallows her pride, her dignity, and everything else just to survive. As it turns out, male lead runs the cruel organization…

I thought I could root for the FL but she’s so passive and accepting of every misery thrown at her that it is hard to read. LXY looks so intensely good in here since he’s a Prince who also hops on a horse and goes to war that I might take a peak. Lol. I’m not that into toxic male leads but I know they are the rage nowadays.

Opposite attracts as rival tribe members Li Yi Tong and Bi Wen Jun light up the sparkles in Warm on a Cold Night

Synopsis From Viki because the Qiyi’s plot gave me rash reading it: Su Jiu Er (Li Yi Tong) is a young, talented, and personable female constable with a keen investigatory mind. She hails from the Qian Kingdom, meaning she is in possession of a rabbit-like spirit – and that she constantly feels cold. She is attracted to warmth, wherever she can find it. During the course of her investigations, she is forced to go undercover, where she comes across Han Zheng (Bi Wen Jun), a member of the Qi Kingdom’s ruling family.

Han Zhen is imbued with a wolf-like spirit, which grants him phenomenal strength and agility. It also makes his skin incredibly warm to the touch – a factor that makes Su Jiu Er want to cuddle up to him! But he lacks interpersonal skills, and is harsh and abrasive to everyone he meets. Opposites attract, however – and this unusual duo forms an increasingly close bond as they investigate a strange murder case that involves both of their kingdoms! Will their hot-cold connection lead them to love?

The Silence of the Monster with Bi Wen Jun, Zhu Zheng Ting, Sun Yi Han, and Zhang Bo Jia confirmed air date

The Silence of the Monster (孤独的野兽) is a modern drama following four individuals as they come out of their shelves and learn to heal.

Synopsis from Viki: He Chu Feng (Bi Wen Jun) and Luo Bin (Zhu Zheng Ting) are the two oddball operators of Monster Vintage, a notable antique store. They live in the same house together, with only a large cat for company, and have become accustomed to each other’s bizarre quirks, although their respective love lives are nothing to write home about! He Chu Feng is a man of mystery, and is the store’s locksmith extraordinaire – able to open any lock imaginable on a range of antique pieces. And Luo Bin is the master appraiser of the duo – a man capable of assessing an antique’s worth in mere seconds.

But their lives are about to turn upside down when two women enter the fray. First comes a trainee lawyer named Sui Yi (Sun Yi Han). The duo agrees to let them live with her, forcing them into an unfamiliar routine of housework – but also sparking a somewhat unconventional fledgling romance between the positive and personable Sui Yi and the ever-enigmatic He Chu Feng. Then, an ace auctioneer named Fang Qi (Zhang Bai Jia) comes to seek help from the housemates. She has suffered an injury and needs assistance – and it’s love at first sight for Luo Bin the moment he sets eyes on her. Can romance really blow a fresh wind through this antiques emporium?

For a drama title that reminds me of The Silence of the Lamb, I expected something darker? Lol.

BL novel Seizing Dreams (Duo Meng) begins filming with Bi Wen Jun and Wang Rui Chang

Aha! The reunion of besties from In A Class of Her Own (remake of Sungkyunkwan Scandal, so they are the SJK & YAI of the Chinese adaptation) for a BL novel-turned-drama adaptation. Original novel is written by Fei Tian Ye Xiang. I took a look at the synopsis and would like to describe it as an uplifting relief for one’s soul from the harsh reality through their dreams. The story begins with one of our male leads, Yu Hao (played by Bi Wen Jun), a hard-working college student accused of stealing a watch from a family (he’s tutoring the little girl.) We don’t know much about him yet, but a quick introduction tells us he grew up under sad circumstances. For whatever reason, his parents left him when he was younger and his sole guardian – his grandmother, died shortly after his college entrance exam. And now he’s accused of thievery. At wits’ end, he wants to end his life and misery. At that point, he meets the other male lead, known as the “General” (played by Wang Rui Chang) who advises and guides him in his dream to retrieve his totem (a shield). And that’s how the drama works. A dreamer is saved when he/she finds his totem in the dream, leading to resolutions to the problems of reality. BTW, the “General” has another identity. 😉
