Healer Of Children (了不起的儿科医生) stars Wang Zi Wen and Chen Xiao as pediatricians. The story follows our female lead who was saved by a pediatrician when she was younger which successfully inspires her to be a healer for children when she grows up. Her savior, the then-pediatrician is now a director at the top children’s hospital and seeing her talents and potentials, decides to take her under his wings. Our heroine embarks on the journey of education, maturity, and perseverance alongside her colleagues.
This is one long production! More than half a year to finish filming! Now let the post-production editing begins. Both leads wrote a lengthy appreciation post on their respective weibos to thank the director and staff. The newly released BTS video shows both of them having a blast together as well. I didn’t expect anything less from the mischievous Yang Zi!
The Golden Hairpin (青簪行) is based on the novel written by Ce Ce Qing Han. The story follows our female lead who made quite an impression at the tender age of 13 when she begins helping her dad solve murder cases. When she turns 17, her life takes a dive as she’s on the run, accused of murdering her own family to escape an arranged marriage. During her run, she meets Prince Li (4th son of the Emperor) and is involved in the conspiracies of the princes and her detective skills are put to test when Prince Li’s soon-to-be wife disappears/dies. In exchange for his help to clear her name, she becomes his eunuch, helping him on the side.
Needs to clarify some things. 1) Because of the rumor of low ratings resulting in cutting of episodes (from 111 to 60), the Glory team declared war against any who would spread false news. They clarified on weibo that Glory has always been only 60 episodes. However, part 2 (dun dun dun!) is still in post-production and will air some time in the future (rumor says 3/22 with 30 episodes.)
You know what this means right? They just pulled a Chusen on us. LOL. Splitting a season into 2 parts. *rolls eyes*
[This is a new feature we’re trying out! So everyone can gather and express their thoughts. We’re calling it Review It! If you have a request for some dramas to be reviewed in this manner, shoot me an email!]
Between Glory of Tang Dynasty (大唐荣耀) and Three Lives Three Worlds, I think the majority is anticipating 3L3W more, but I’m leaning towards Tang right now. The intensity of the trailers, the richness of the colors, and the excellent soulful singers they have on board got me! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
Opening themesongs are revealed for two dramas that will be contending in the ratings game with General and I nearing its last leg of episodes. Smart move to air earlier. Yang Mi‘s Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms and Jing Tian‘s Glory of the Tang Dynasty. On the one hand, I still do not feel much for the OTP of 3L3W but their secondary and tertiary couples are looking cute and their songs are pretty on the dot to steal my little heart. On the other hand, while Tang Dynasty is on the down low with promos, I’m more inclined to check it out, thanks largely to the intense trailer, Jing Tian’s charms, and the wagon of cast members from Legend of Chusen. I need to see them in something worthwhile of their talents. Yes, that’s a shade at you, Chusen!
Glory of the Tang Dynasty (大唐荣耀) should be called The Legend of Chusen‘s men courting Jing Tian. We have Jing Tian, Shu Chang (also in Chusen), and Wan Qian for the ladies, and Mao Zi Jun, Qin Jun Jie, and Ren Jia Lun for the men. One of them will win the lady’s hand and succeed the throne. If anything, the latest trailer reveals a bloody war path leading to the throne. It is fast-moving and I hope they didn’t use all the action scenes in the trailer alone. XD
