Based loosely on the Boy-love novel Mo Dao Zu Shi (魔道祖师) written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu, The Untamed in the drama adaptation features Xiao Zhan and Wang Yi Bo in a budding bromance instead. Go here to read more about the characters from the novel. Reading the synopsis of the story, reminds me a little bit of The Legends. Our main protagonist goes his own way to achieve immortality and creates his own demonic sect, which makes him hated by millions in the world for the chaos he created. The other sects/clans come together to kill him. The synopsis of the drama looks quite different from that of the novel. A lot of details are changed so tread carefully!
Hai Tang Jing Yu Yan Zhi Tou (海棠经雨胭脂透) is an upcoming republican series that is not focused on spies but make-up factory back in the days and the messy love triangle between two brothers and a beautiful girl. Li Yi Tong (Legend of the Condor Heroes 2016) and Deng Lun (Princess Agents) are the ultimate OTP but elder brother Ying Hao Ming will throw many wrenches to separate them. I have been meaning to write about this drama but the production was being so cheap with stills as weeks turned into months with nothing but fan-taken photos. The frustration was real. Lol. Now, they are starting to trickle out quality photos so yay for that.
Not fond of the crazy storyline but they look so cute….
While we see glimpses of his romance with the ladies, it’s Wu Lei‘s chemistry with his master, Baron Chen, that cracks me up. He puts the poor kid through a lot to get that kind of face above! So many pretty ladies, Wu Lei putting the moves on his Jie Jies. Tsk tsk!! XD
Happy Mother’s Day everyone! I don’t think we need a reminder to appreciate our moms because such unconditional and selfless love can only stem from our parents. It always amazes how much my mom has accomplished so far despite being illiterate (she only recognizes her children’s names) and very poor for many years. She’s my star, my love, and my inspiration. Always and Forever.
A compilation of Chinese celebrities with their lovely mothers or some fans would say… their mother-in-laws (hehe)!
