Well-Intended Love Season 2 with Xu Kai Cheng and Wang Shuang to feature a new storyline?

And here I thought Season 2 with the same cast automatically means the continuation of the season 1! The trailer for Season 2 was released a few days ago and fans were left surprised (and upset) since season 1 ended with our main couple happily married and expecting their first child. I didn’t watch Well-Intended Love S1 so I have no idea what’s going on. From the trailer, our female lead is a famous actress while our hero is still a big CEO; they both attend an event which ends up being scandalous and when she questions his motives, he announces that they are engaged. Thus, a contract marriage begins!

BUT!! Some eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that their CEO is wearing a wedding ring! So does this mean….our heroine has amnesia and he’s wooing her back? Or?

First Impression: What do you think of Eternal Love of Dream (The Pillow Book) with Dilraba and Vengo Gao?

The Pillow Book also now known as Eternal Love of Dream is adapted from the second book in the Three Lives, Three Worlds series. It follows the love story between a nine-tailed fox queen of Qing Qiu – Bai Feng Jiu, and the first ruler of Heaven – Dong Hua Di Jun, that spans over three different lives. I remember the OTP was really loved during the airing of Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms but I can’t help but wonder whether they have missed the sweet spot to air this drama as it has been close to three years. You want to ride the high tides and feed the hungry fans, don’t ya? Anyway, I didn’t watch the prequel so chances of me watching this is slim. The visual of this couple is no joke though. Dilraba is ethereal and Vengo could be a chiseled AI in his next role. XD

Begins airing 1/22!

Forward Forever with Huang Zi Tao and Jackson Yi joins January broadcast

Every drama is airing. Lol. Just when I thought I’m all caught up, Weibo explodes with more dramas. In any case, Forward Forever (热血同行) with Huang Zi Tao and Jackson Yi is adapted from a Boy-love manhua which has been heavily modified to now be a bromance instead. Zi Tao plays a member of the royal family nearing the end of the Qing Dynasty who has a secret identity as the leader of an assassination group called Yan Shi Fan, which was created to protect the nation. By chance, he meets a quiet gangster who has a sharpness to kill and befriends him, encouraging him to join the organization. The two youths fight battles and overcome challenges together, forming a strong bond which enables to share ideals and eventually join the revolution.

To air on 1/20.

First Impression: What do you think of Dr. Cutie with Sun Qian and Huang Jun Jie?

This looks mighty cute. First half of the trailer is all rom-com material, then the latter half turns melo. Our heroine is a cross-dressed doctor who is later transferred into Mansion Ji and gets assigned to work under the handsome general Ji Heng. The tricky part is….her family was all executed years ago and she eventually finds out it was on his order (while being entangled in a love triangle with his brother). Dun, dun, dun!

Took me a while to recognize where I have seen our male lead from, he debuted in Fox in the Screen as the white fox and then in The Big Boss! xD

Started airing today 1/18!

First Impression: What do you think of the Handsome Siblings with Hu Yi Tian and Chen Zhe Yuan?

My first version of this story by Gu Long was the Taiwanese version with Jimmy Lin and Alec Su, followed by the TVB version with Tony Leung and Hugo Ng, then HK version with Dicky Cheung and Nicholas Tse. In all the versions, the mischievous brother (to be played by Chen Zhe Yuan) who was raised up by a group of villains is almost always the reason to continue watching. He’s unconventional, a prankster, and has tricks up his butt-hole. Lol. The newer version seems to favor the other twin more (played by Hu Yi Tian, he’s the more popular actor of the two), who was raised in a female-only palace, by a cold lady conspiring to see the brothers at each other’s throats. Why? Because their father rejected her and eloped with one of her slave girls! And this is her revenge plan.

The drama will air on CCTV, Qiyi, and Netflix, starting 1/16.
