Qian Qiu Ling (千秋令) continues the never-ending battle between good and evil. After thousands of years of fighting, the next generation of the two worlds happen to become friends. But during an incident, our hero pushes our heroine off of a cliff to save his Righteous Master, giving the Demon Cult a chance to save and cultivate our heroine to become the next Leader of the Demon cult. 10 years later, they meet again. She uses his past guilt to stay beside him, while trying to kill him secretly. However, his warmth and kindness move her and she slowly falls for him. When she decides to give up the plan for revenge, another hand plants many misunderstandings between the two and forces them to fight. After going through many rounds of hardships and fighting, the two recognize their true hearts and that no matter where their stance was/is, certain things do not change: justice and the love in your heart.
Upcoming republican drama, Shanghai Picked Flowers (十里洋场拾年花), has quietly began filming with Peter Sheng Yi Lun as the sole leading male and Qin Hai Lu as one of the invited female stars (this is not what you think it is, LOL). The story remains vague so far as we only know the story is set in the glamorous 1920s Shanghai, following our male lead’s transformation from a rookie reporter to a full-grown news writer, detailing the interesting lives of the female stars he meets, starting with Miss Qin Hai Lu, and making rounds (every 3 episodes) to other female stars including Siqin Gaowa, Ma Su, Chen Zi Han, and etc.
Alright! Finally some confirmed news on the next big-budget historical drama, The Fated General (霍去病), based on the life story of military general Huo Qu Bing of the Western Han Dynasty. The last actor in recent memory to play this role for me was Eddie Peng in Sound of the Desert. Zhang Ruo Yun is chosen for the titular lead role for quite some time already and now they have the crew to start rolling them cameras. Cast members are nothing short of beautiful. Wee-bit too baby-looking to be considered as fearsome on the battlefield, though.
