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.

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.
Getting a season 2 in Cdramaland is very difficult, almost impossible, much less keeping the cast changes to a minimum. Ever Night somehow did that, not without upset fans and sides, but here we are at the premiere of Season 2. Even though I didn’t finish season 1, certain scenes still linger in my mind, which is a sure sign that I will return to finish. Looking forward to see those awesome action sequences again; in the hands of a female director (Yang Yang) no less!
Speaking of part 2, I still need to finish part 1. The change in our male lead from Arthur to Dylan was quite upsetting for many fans, but I want to remain optimistic. His height next to Yi Ren is spot on. Now let’s show us that signature smug!
No confirmed air date yet but it’s rumored to be soon. 🙂
