Three years ago, police officer Wu Gang was killed by a drug organization known as K. His son, Wu Zhen Feng (played by Chen Xiao) is expelled from the police force for violating the rules. Embarrassed, he tries to run away but is chased by his good friend Chen Yu (Wang Yi Bo). Along the way, they are attacked and in saving Chen Yu, Zhen Feng is taken away by the drug traffickers.

Zhou Dong Yu And Xu Kai confirmed as leads in Ancient Love Poetry (Shang Gu)

Yay! A cute pairing! Ancient Love Poetry is adapted from the novel Shang Gu (上古) written by Xing Ling and the production team has recently confirmed the leads in Zhou Dong Yu and Xu Kai. The story follows one of the four Immortals named Shang Gu who falls into a deep slumber after sacrificing herself in a trial 60,000 years ago. She wakes up with no memories of the past. But someone else hasn’t forgotten about their love, another immortal who waited for her, our male lead played by Xu Kai. Their epic love story undergoes several rounds of life and death (you don’t say). This is the generic synopsis from Baidu…. I’m distracted by the nice weather as I failed to read a little bit about the novel. Has anyone read this novel and can spill some beans? Lol.

Gulinazha and Xu Wei Zhou confirmed for historical drama Da Tang Ming Yue


Fan-made

Da Tang Ming Yue (大唐明月) is an upcoming historical drama based on the novel written by Lan Yun Shu. And I want to add “loosely” because they basically just borrowed the names of some people in history. A lot of things were changed – such as our heroine time-traveling into the past, her career, etc. Xu Wei Zhou plays a character in the Tang dynasty, General Pei Xing Yan, known for his superior fighting skills. Gulinazha plays daughter of the female officer in the royal tailoring department who is forecasted to not do well with needles and thread. When she was five, her mother dies and she wakes up with no memory after an accident. She’s then taken in by her mother’s good friend and groomed to be a royal consort. Her mom’s wish was for her to escape the palace and live a peaceful life, and after a meeting with the great general Pei, she also yearns for a life outside of the walls. But her talents in making clothes attracts good and bad attention, allowing General Pei to jump and rescue her multiple times. They later find out the culprit behind all her misfortunes is done by the same woman who took her in.

The two look pretty cute together at the filming ceremony. While Gulinazha is a frequenter of ancient series, this is a first for Xu Wei Zhou.

First Impression: What do you think of The Romance of Tiger and Rose with Zhao Lu Si and Ding Yu Xi?

It’s here! Airing today! Let me know how it is!

The Romance of Tiger and Rose (传闻中的陈芊芊) is a ancient romcom drama with an interesting storyline. Our heroine is a struggling scriptwriter with a passion for her career. She finally finds an investor for her drama but right before they can begin filming, the male lead actor openly shows dissatisfaction about the story, putting a stop to the production. Frustrated, she vows to prove her ability, just to find herself in her own fictional world. She’s NOT the female lead but rather the unlikable third princess, a minor but quite scandalous female who is destined to die in 3 episodes, by the hands of the male lead no less (!!). With a death sentence hanging over her head, she has to fight against time and is caught between the male lead (Ding Yu Si) who plays a sly prince, and second male lead (Sheng Ying Hao), a perfect man at all angles.
