Author of the widely popular boy-boy romance web series in 2015, Addicted (Heroin) is back with Advance Bravely, an adaptation of her novel Shi Bu Ke Dang. The synopsis has me cracking up already. Imagine having a brother (who owns a bodyguard agency) and asking him to help you with a said boy (who’s a cop)….only to have them two find attraction in each other! LOL. Makes sense right? In the same line of duty…
But oh my, the two leading guys are handsome (one is arguably very hot)!
Here you go! Updates on webdramas that release on Valentine’s Day for people who just want to cuddle under a warm blanket like me! I have written about them before so if you want to read the previous posts, just click on the drama name in the tag line.
Another production begins rolling! Remake of Butterfly Lovers starring two male leads, Yang Jing Cheng and Lu Zhuo, from the director that brought us Love is More Than a A Word and Till Death Tear Us Apart. Though my heart is at the edge of straying to the handsome second male lead played by Lin Feng Song. Anyhoo, nice details and gentle colors, I like the costume designers of Chen Peng’s productions.
Included in this batch is Lay‘s Operation Love, Yan Kuan‘s Love and Passion, Wang Mei Ren‘s SCI, Wu Chun‘s Martial Universe, Ying Er’s Legend of the Ancient Sword 2, Raymond Lam‘s Rule The World, and Jiang Jin Fu‘s Lightning.
Till Death Tear Us Apart is based on the novel 愉此一生 written by Nan Zhi. Director Chen Peng brought his group of boys to the republican period and let them continue their love story. Liu Yu Sheng (Jiang Zi Le) hails from a rich family. After studying abroad, he returns home to find his asset/inheritance stolen by his other family members. To make a living, he has to work as a teacher at a small school. In this hopeless state, he meets an old friend in Zhou Yao Hua (Yan Zi Dong), who harbors a crush on him for the longest time. Thus begins Yu Sheng’s rounds of difficult choices.
I don’t know much else but the beautiful costumes and teasing song = Gimme!
Chen Peng may be a young director, but he is certainly bold in his approach of promoting gay dramas. Graduated from Capital Normal University, he’s the chairman of his own production company. Recall that he was the director for two webdramas, featuring the same leads in the first ancient gay drama (Love is More Than A Word) to a republican series (Till Death Tear Us Apart). And here he goes again, remaking one of the four Chinese classic folktales, The Butterfly Lovers (梁山伯与祝英台) into a boy-boy love story.
