I waited so long for Mr. Sunshine to be back in dramas but one after another, all his dramas are melo… T_T
Based on the novel by Ling Xi, Love in Flames of War (良辰好景知几何) follows the tumultuous romance between a temperamental third young master who’s sent to train in the military and an independent and resilient girl who takes refuge at his home.
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
Love In Flames of War (良辰好景知几何) is a republican drama based on the novel of the same name written by Ling Xi.
GAH. I’m so torn. Mr. SunShine is back but I’m not fond of republican dramas at all. I feel like they start to look and feel the same after a few episodes. The novel sounds coo-coo for coo-coo birds too! The male lead is described as a young marshal who is possessive and cruel, and even forcibly “takes” her, so she hates his guts. Now I’m eyeing that word in quotes questioningly because if it’s the R, then I’m out. She’s a fallen miss and meets our male lead when she was 15, and when she was 19, he shot her first love and killed him…. Ahum, I believe they will change a lot of things to make the drama less disturbing for public viewing and more melodramatic for their tagline of “heart-wrenching romance.” As for Chen Du Ling….she hasn’t impressed me as an actress and the stills do not lift that skepticism – she has the exact same expression in all her pictures. XD
