Aren’t they cute? I started this post last week… and kinda got http://www.gulfportpharmacy.com/ side-tracked with other stuff. Most of the dramas aired already. Lol. XD
The Emperor’s Love (倾城亦清欢) is adapted from the novel written by Nian Hua Re Xiao. It is described as an intense love story. Our hero is cold and unpredictable, he’s the 9th Prince of Bei Mu kingdom, also the Emperor’s uncle with a nickname: the God of War. His legacy is built on blood. His other identity is a sect leader of a mysterious organization. Our female lead is the unfavored daughter of the Feng family. After a brush with death, she plays dumb in the family in order to survive; even though she’s a skilled doctor. She’s described as the warm light shining on our hero (as always, right? Lol.)
She’s a small object that accidentally fell onto his chest, and soon becomes the treasure of his heart, making him love and hate her at the same time.
Love Never Fails (落花时节又逢君) is adapted from the novel When Spring Ends, I’ll See You Again by Shu Ke. It’s nice to see second male lead reunited with female lead in a new drama as the male lead. 😉 The story follows the journey of our female, a red camellia sprite who falls in love at first sight with the male lead at a Flower Festival. He is not a nobody! He’s one of the greatest gods in heaven. She wants to become his empress and to that request, he tells her to cultivate until she can reach the heavenly/immortal realm. To do that, she enters the human realm to go through a trial. There in the mortal realm, she meets the second male lead, a handsome nobleman who is looking for true love himself. His land oversees the flower field where she’s planted as a Camellia. He wants to renovate the garden and in order to stop him, she turns to her human self at night and begs him not to take away her home. Our second male lead begins to like this strong and independent flower fairy and promises not to ruin her field as long as she comes and hangs with him every night. Even though she confesses to liking someone else, second male lead reaffirms her that it’s okay. His human life doesn’t last long and if he could spend his short years with her, he’s contented, and she can easily go back to the immortal man she’s cultivating for after his death.
Why is that so damn tragically sweet.
Something happens and our second male lead sacrifices himself to save our heroine. She, moved and touched by him, requests the male lead to remove her cultivation thus far and makes her a mortal being, so she can repay second male lead. This begins her ten lifetimes of reincarnation, each one she makes big and small decisions, and bears the results bravely.
Quite like the sound of this female lead from the reviews so far!
Faith Makes Great (理想照耀中国) is an upcoming drama celebrating 100 years of the Communist Party of China, recording the unity and leadership of the Chinese people throughout the years. It consists of 40 mini stories, each one runs for 1 episode, totaling over 100 actors and actresses and 3000+ production crew members.
Zhu Qing Hao (祝卿好) is adapted from the novel written by Yi Ren Kui Kui and stars Yuan Bing Yan and Zheng Ye Cheng as the main OTP. Our heroine is a beautiful, stunning woman in her youth. Described as similar to the domineering CEO of the modern world, she appears confident but has some underlying psychological issues to deal with growing up in a broken home. Even though her dad doesn’t favor her, she still has the King’s favor. Once her eyes laid on the Embroidered Uniform Guard played by our male lead, she’s a goner. She falls head over heels for him and is determined to marry him. Turning the world upside down, she chases after him wholeheartedly.
If you haven’t jumped on the hype, what are you doing!! But jokes aside, wow, Love and Redemption has really been taking over the cdrama world. Want to know why everyone is saying poor Si Feng? Or why this drama gives off Ashes of Love vibes? Join Dan, Lin, and ProductiveProcrastinator as they give a first impression on Love and Redemption and attempt to convince Alison to give it a try~
Based on the novel written by Shi Si Lang, Love and Redemption (琉璃美人煞) stars Yuan Bing Yan and Cheng Yi as the leading couple. Our heroine is the second daughter to Shaoyang Sect Leader, who is inept in martial arts and described as clueless and weak, in comparison to her capable older sister (Zhang Yu Xi). Therefore, during the annual Martial Arts Competition, while her older sister is sent to represent the sect, younger sister is sent to a cave to reflect and that’s where she meets Lize Palace‘s disciple, our hero, and the two forge a friendship. Elder Sister makes enemy with Wu Long during the competition and he in return, injures our heroine, which motivates her to improve her martial arts in the next four years. Wu Long then betrays the righteous sects and join the evil sects in hopes of taking over jianghu. Our leads now must work together to fight the evil forces. The novel is much more complicated with their past lives being immortal beings who fought the demon a thousands years ago and disappeared.
Just another round-up! Happy Weekend!
