Night Wanderer (夜旅人) is adapted from the novel written by Zhao Xi Zhi and has confirmed the leading couple in Ni Ni and Deng Lun with their released posters. The novel follows two individuals – our heroine is from the year 2015 and she’s famous female forensic doctor, returning home from a murder scene and witnessing the corridor lights flicker. On the same night but in 1937, our hero – a lawyer in Shanghai also returns home when the lights go out. The time and space of these two people are connected by a lamp. He’s described as gentle, old-fashioned, and righteous, while she’s described as cool, calm, and courageous. The first time they meet, he’s in no hurry as he helps her to the hospital with a black umbrella. The second time they meet, he has become her tenant, holding a tenant contract from 1937. Lol. Their love transcends time and space, and once it explodes, it’s eternal.
That is the novel excerpt, but when I checked the drama synopsis on baidu, it sounds different. This may be another case where some plots/descriptions are changed to accommodate drama making.

I did not expect that in my lifetime there would be a global pandemic happening. It is – still is, very tough. Working in a major hospital, I was very fortunate to have a job through Covid but there were definitely some selfish moments where I just wanted to stay home and stay away from the hospital, where protocols and procedures keep changing every single day as we learned more things about the virus. Colleagues falling sick and hospital dispatching some of us to different areas, sometimes unrelated to our job; some smaller hospitals were sending my co-workers to work at the morgue. >.<”
I don’t know what to expect from these dramas but maybe all we need is a little thing called hope to keep us moving forward. Having this blog and some of you guys to chat with has always been the anchor of my sanity. So thank-you for that! Stay healthy, stay informed, stay connected, and stay calm! We are in this together.
If I announced each time I was back at the beginning of these posts, they’d probably all start with it. So from now on lets just promise to pretend I didn’t miss any weeks. But nevertheless, another week has ended so here are some pretty photos to brighten up the start of your weekend~.
I’m back, after disappearing only a week into these posts~. One of the things you’ll learn about me, is my lack of consistency, but to make up for the absence I’ve hand picked more than I should have for this week. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
Join us on Discord for more photoshoots, since Kappy was very logical in her approach that sharing more would not be a treat for everyone’s bandwidth.
Hai Tang Jing Yu Yan Zhi Tou (海棠经雨胭脂透) is an upcoming republican series that is not focused on spies but make-up factory back in the days and the messy love triangle between two brothers and a beautiful girl. Li Yi Tong (Legend of the Condor Heroes 2016) and Deng Lun (Princess Agents) are the ultimate OTP but elder brother Ying Hao Ming will throw many wrenches to separate them.
This is gonna be trailers galore folks. I’m serious. Both Qiyi and HNTV had their quarterly event the past two days and had been showing off their next batch of dramas to screen! Plus, just a few more dramas for October ~~
Long gone are the days I can focus on one drama per post. xD
Following To Be a Better Man, and Mr. Right, Mr. Fighting is the third drama in the Mister series of the same team. Deng Lun plays a star falling out of favor and is suddenly abandoned by his manager of ten years. He lands in the hands of a new team, consisting of folks outside of the entertainment business (lol). He has no choice but to stick with them to find out what really happened to his old manager. As he literally tumbles in steps with his new team, he gradually becomes a better person, learning dignity, courage, and responsibility. Sandra plays his assistant but her real job is marketing for a supermarket. Sounds helpful…she is promoting stuff. Heh!
