Li Yi Feng, Maggie Jiang, George Hu, and Jiang Meng Jie begin filming In New York

Well, filming started a while back but they are holding the opening ceremony today In New York (also the drama title, pun intended!) Beside Li Yi Feng and Maggie Jiang as the leads, we have George Hu and Jiang Meng Jie as well. With In New York (在纽约), Li Yi Feng finally returns to modern dramaland after three years in ancient land. He will be playing a full-of-character lawyer who was raised in New York and lives strictly to uphold justice for the lower-class people. Then one day he meets a fashion designer who came all the way across the world with dreams of becoming the top dog in the said industry. It’s a story of hopeful dreams and bitter reality slaps (my own words, lol) that today’s youths can relate to. Jiang Meng Jie plays assistant and best friend to our heroine and George Hu will round out the character playing a gentleman in New York. While other cast members already missed the food back home, George is reminiscing of his past childhood being raised in New York and all.

Qin Jun Jie and Xu Lu lead heavy cast members in Spy Hunter

I really don’t know the appeal of spy dramas. Lol. Even with Li Ying’s Rookie Agent Rouge, I did not complete it. And yet here we are…with another spy drama in our hands, this time led by Qin Jun Jie and Xu Lu called Spy Hunter (天衣无缝). They are a fresh pairing and I like Xu Lu in bigger productions. The director and writer have been good before so let’s hope it’s not another deflated attempt.

Zhang Tian Ai and Zhang Ruo Yun looking polished in The Evolution of Our Love

Everyone looks good, from main to supporting! YAY! If I could describe the plot in short terms, it would be In Time With You 2.0 because here our leads have been friends for 15 years, from their hormonal youth into adulthood. They support each other throughout the years and finally recognize that the best kind of love is the kind that grows along with you. Zhang Tian Ai is the go-getter at work but is unlucky with men (with that face?!) and Zhang Ruo Yun‘s the gentle soul with homely manners. Awww, their dynamics is gonna be uber sweet.

Affair of Half a Lifetime remake secures Jiang Xin and Joe Cheng

The new drama adaptation of Eileen Chang’s melo novel, Affair of Half a Lifetime, has been ongoing for two years already and it has finally kicked off filming today! There are two other adaptations: a movie version (Eighteen Springs) with Leon Lai, Anita Mui and Jacklyn Wu, and a drama version in 2003 with Ruby Lin, Patrick Tang, and Jiang Qin Qin. I’m iffy about the novel because of the story line but hopefully, they will edit out a huge chunk of the crapshow the female lead goes through? Because how could you put a person through that much, right?

First look at Summer’s Desire 2017 with Qin Jun Jie and Zhang Xue Ying

As you might already know from past posts, Ming Xiao Xi’s twisted melo romance, Summer’s Desire (泡沫之夏) gets a rehash edition in 2017 with Qin Jun Jie (as Ou Chen) and Zhang Xue Ying (as Yin Xia Mo). Third leg of the triangle went through a switcheroo and now actor Huang Sheng Chi from My Mr. Mermaid will play Luo Xi. Looking at the first batch of character stills, I feel like everyone’s personality got watered down 3 tanks of purity. Lol.
