Costume Comedy drama Peacock in Wonderland with Zhou Jun Wei and Zhang Chu Han drops suddenly in April

Yay! Puppy Yan Lin has a new drama coming out, though I hope he gets more projects soon because it’s looking like a dry well now.

The name though. Lol. 🤭 Peacock in Wonderland (孔雀归来又逢君) is a costume comedy drama following our female lead as she time-travels to past after opening a magical antique box. She becomes a sacrificial goddess, accidentally getting tangled into a dangerous pursuit and meeting a young master in our male lead. After the ceremony, she’s thrown in jail and somehow our male lead becomes her bodyguard after many confrontations.

Spy thriller drama In the Name of the Brother with Qin Hao and Yang Mi to air in April

Looks like the theme for this month is republican series!

Synopsis from Qiyi: In the Name of the Brother (哈尔滨一九四四) is set in Harbin under the puppet Manchukuo regime in 1944, the story follows Song Zhuowen (played by Qin Hao), an underground party member disguised as a railway police officer, who is mistakenly identified by the head of the spy department, Guan Xue (played by Yang Mi), as her lifesaver—actually Zhuowen’s long-lost twin brother, Song Zhuowu (also played by Qin Hao). To uncover the ultimate mission of Kwantung Army officer Asano Daigo (played by Koji Yano) in Harbin, Zhuowen decides to use Guan Xue to infiltrate the spy department, but the sudden appearance of Zhuowu plunges him into unexpected trouble. Guan Xue is cold-blooded and suspicious, cruel and ruthless, while Zhuowu is impulsive by nature, often unintentionally sabotaging Zhuowen’s operations. Only through the arrangements of their superiors do the brothers cooperate and protect each other, avoiding the overt and covert struggles among their colleagues in the spy department, and eventually gaining the trust of Guan Xue and the Japanese officials. Within this short year, the underground party members endure hardships to uncover and stop a secret operation conspired by the Japanese army and the Soviet Union, root out the puppet Manchukuo spies within their party, and welcome the final victory of the war.

Yang Zi and Xu Kai is each other’s Best Choice Ever in upcoming modern drama

Best Choice Ever (承欢记) is adapted from the novel written by Yi Shu.

Synopsis from Tencent: Mai Chenghuan, a girl born in an ordinary family in Shanghai in the 1990s, is urged by her mother, Liu Wanyu, to discuss marriage with her boyfriend, Xin Jialiang. However, the affluent economic conditions of Xin’s family upset the originally equal emotional relationship. At the same time, Mai’s mother’s excessive interference in her daughter’s lifelong affairs accelerates the breakup between Mai Chenghuan and Xin Jialiang. Caught between filial piety and loyalty to oneself, Mai Chenghuan struggles. She gradually breaks free from her mother’s dominant care and becomes more focused and enterprising in her work. Mai Chenghuan’s transformation is recognized by her grandmother, who entrusts her with the important responsibility of managing the family’s most valued hotel business. Yao Zhiming, the grandson of the grandmother and a professional hotel manager, gradually understands and approves of Mai Chenghuan in their cooperation. They become work partners, advancing hand in hand. In their personal lives, Yao Zhiming is surrounded by the warmth beneath the fireworks of the Mai family, and his feelings for Mai Chenghuan gradually heat up. From “beneath Chenghuan’s knees” to “achieving self,” Mai Chenghuan has embarked on an extraordinary journey of growth that is uniquely her own.

New Adaptation of Chinese Paladin 1: Sword and Fairy with He Yu and Yang Yu Tong to join April Broadcast

Following the footsteps of Chinese Paladin franchise, we have another adaptation for 2024, this one is also called Sword and Fairy (又见逍遥). Seriously? Seriously? You can’t give it a new name to stop the confusion with the one starring Xu Kai and Esther Yu aired last year? 🤦 It’s adapted from the first game and if you remember Hu Ge and Liu Yi Fei made a splash afterwards. He Yu is currently entertaining me in The Legend of Shen Li so I guess they want to keep momentum going for him, hence this is coming out now. Looks like he also has some Immortal friends coming with him to here too. Lol

Zhang Jing Yi Blossoms in Adversity with Hu Yi Tian this April

Okay, I will get my head out of Shen Li‘s oven and check other Cdrama updates…

Blossoms in Adversity (惜花芷) is adapted from the novel written by Kong Liu. It follows our heroine, eldest daughter of the Hua family, who hides her ability during her childhood and only reveals her intelligence when the family business threatens to collapse. I swear Cdramas and their smart-girl-but-I-gotta-hide-my-talents is its own soapy trope. The question is…can it shine above the others?

To air 4/2~ (Side note: It’s APRIL!! I have one more week of maternity leave left. What if he goes to college while I’m at work? 😭 )
