Jeremy Tsui and Meng Zi Yi confirmed for novel-to-drama adaptation of The Times Spent in Pretense (Zao Zuo Shi Guang)

The Times Spent in Pretense (造作时光) is adapted from the novel written by Yue Xia Die Ying. The novel sounds lighthearted and zippy, with an adorable focus on family dynamics. Male lead is our Crown Prince – highly skilled in many areas, but he is lazy with an unpleasant personality. His moves/actions are often misconstrued by the Emperor and the subjects (they over-analyze, LOL). Female lead is from the House of Hua, a family known for their military accomplishments. She fights really well, is capable, unruly, and armed with a sharp tongue. However, she has a very odd dream. She wants to become known as the beautiful…..and sickly beauty, like…. Xi Shi. LOL. So she works hard towards creating an image of a delicate flower to the outsiders. The Emperor wants the two to get married and from that, a lot of hilarious moments arise.

This sounds oh-so-cute!

You can read the translated novel at Sleep Chaser’s Cot.

Till The End of The Moon reunites Bai Lu and Luo Yun Xi for their second collaboration

Sorry for the lack of updates last week, I was on vacation for 9 days and just got back 2 hours ago!

Till The End of The Moon (长月无烬) is adapted from the novel Black Moonlight Holds the BE Script written by Teng Luo Wei Zhi. The novel opens up with our female lead, Li Su Su (Bai Lu) tumbling through time – 500 years into the past, a time where demons haven’t controlled the Earth/realms yet. She makes an agreement with the soul of her new body, Ye Xi Wu, to save the her family from the evil thing. Ye Xi Wu is the third daughter of General Ye who is recently married to the future demon lord, Tan Tai Jin (Luo Yun Xi). For now, Tan Tai Jin is a mere hostage prince, taken to the Great Xia Empire at the tender age of six and is hated/mistreated by everyone. HOHOHO, is this not my favorite trope or what. Lol. xD Our female lead is from the future, daughter of No. 1 Immortal Sect. The demon lord wrecks havoc and rules over the realm in the present, killing and annihilating every sect, burying them in the infamous Thousand Immortals Tomb. In the present time, Su Su had one encounter with Demon Lord and he spared her life, and she’s then chosen to travel back in time and prevent all the misery from happening by removing the evil bone in his body and only then can he be killed. Who would have thought, spending time with the young him would draw out forbidden feelings, complicating her mission and compromising her heart.

DUN DUN DUN, I like the sound of this one! Woot Woot! =D

You can read the novel here @ Second Life Translations. Ongoing.
