First Trailer and Stills for The Blue Whisperer with Dilraba Dilmurat and Ren Jia Lun

The Blue Whisper aka Yu Jiao Ji (驭鲛记 –> 与君初相识) is adapted from the novel by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang. The drama follows after our hero – the unlucky merman, saved a princess and is then captured to be her pet. She wants to tame the merman and it is said that only those who are born with the power to tame demonic creatures can manage that and they are called demon masters (sorry not technical here). Demon masters are forced to live separately from their families per the imperial decree (to control and enslave them) and they are only allowed to live in four designated areas (north/south/east/west). The Princess’ eunuch transports the merman to the most renowned demon master in the south, where our heroine is currently residing and training. The princess wants the demon master to do three things in 3 months. 1) Make the merman speak 2) Turn his tail into legs 3) Make him eternally loyal to her.

And as such, the merman is subjected to daily torture and punishments for not doing what the demon masters want. At night, our heroine would sneak into his prison cell and tend to his wounds (T_T) There’s a scene where our heroine doesn’t want to force the merman to do things against his will and so she’s tortured (whipped) per the Princess’ order! Our heroine’s backstory is quite sad. On the outside, she’s the most beloved student of the Current Demon Master of the South, but demon valley has been nothing but a prison for her since she was sent there to train at a very young age under some not-so-pleasant “monthly” treatment that she can’t reveal to the outside world. Which is why she feels empathy for the imprisoned merman and wishes to help him escape, landing her into a lot of bloody messes.

First Stills for Being A Hero with Chen Xiao and Wang Yi Bo

Well, one thing is for sure. This drama is not stingy with stills! Lol.

Being A Hero (冰雨火) is a modern police drama about fighting against narcotics starring dual male leads Chen Xiao and Wang Yi Bo, who each has a love interest in Zhao Zhao Yi and Guo Xiao Ting. 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. From then on, the two young men are separated and each has to continue on their own path. Three years later, Chen Yu is now a recognized youngest policeman in the narcotics department while Zhen Feng resurfaces as a murder suspect and is related to a famed drug gang. Chen Yu doffs his police uniform to infiltrate the drug gang and learns that his friend is a lonely hero. The two reunite on the same side and work together to break apart the infamous drug gang.

The stills are so dark and rich, like chocolates! What a handsome cast ensemble!

Godfrey Gao’s last drama We Are All Alone with Qin Lan is set to air

Sometimes, I would see an image of Godfrey and my fingers would move to weibo to check what’s going with him, then I would realize he’s no longer with us. We Are All Alone (怪你过分美丽) is his last drama and it’s based on a novel written by Wei Zai. I thought it’s a little bit ironic how the drama is about actors and the entertainment circle. Our heroine played by Qin Lan is a strict and successful agent, while Godfrey is a lawyer. The trailers raise up a lot of interesting issues, especially roles that older actresses are limited to – involving the talented Kara Hui no less! It is a cutthroat occupation. You need the right combination of timing, luck, and hard work to shine and stay shining.

Airing 6/8.
