Drama Ever Night (Jiang Ye) with Chen Fei Yu and Song Yi Ren to air

Ohhhhh Ohhhh….I am strangely looking forward to Ever Night (Jiang Ye), adapted from the fantasy novel written by Mao Ni. I have never seen the two leads in any other projects, both are rising new faces, especially Song Yi Ren who looks so adorable with her petite frame. What amazes me is the veteran actors enlisted for this drama, you have Leon Lai (what?! I didn’t recognize him at all, time is not kind to him, lol), Adam Cheng, Ni Da Hong, Hu Jun, just to name a few.

Will this be the drama to get me out of my drama drought? Just one caveat I notice….all the girls he meets….they look smitten with him…that is too many girls! But I’m also happy to report that the drama weibo has been posting short clips of the cast dubbing their own voices. Another yay!

Qin Jun Jie and Yuan Bing Yan lead Listening Snow Tower

Listening Snow Tower is a wuxia novel written by Cang Yue, first book in a trilogy. The name of the series stands for the name of the manor in the novel, a famous assassinating organization led by our enigmatic hero – Xiao Yi Qing (actor Qin Jun Jie), who is on a quest to rule jianghu and has built the place on blood and tears. Standing by his side is his beloved person Shu Jing Rong (actress Yuan Bing Yan), who is tied to him with the promise that she will only serve someone who can beat her. Unfortunately, the cold and unbending hero is laden with an incurable disease and his life could end anytime. Likewise, she’s distrustful of everyone around her. It’s an epic romance between two extraordinary people and how they think those around them don’t end up…well….alive.

Behind-The-Scenes videos: Tribes and Empires, Ever Night, Legend of Fu Yao, Sweet Dreams

You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.
