So did everyone get a chance to watch the premiere episodes of Lie Huo Ru Ge? Seems like the styling is the talk of town around here. Lol. Reminds me of the hair lift procedure William and Shi Shi got in Love Lost in Times. xD But back to our main stars, Dilraba reunites with Zhang Bin Bin one more time….. Are these two destined to be ill-fated forever in drama universe or what?! Then there’s our sole older male lead Vic Zhou, who is a decade older than all of the cast. Strange vibe or a slow burn to success? We shall see because I do like the whole cast ensemble.
Oh my….what a beautiful couple. My Mr. Sunshine is back to the big screen! Shawn Dou will team up with Dilraba Dilmurat for Legend of Sun and Moon (日月传奇), based on a Chinese folklore (with many variations) most of us should know of if we grew up watching Chinese dramas! Sunshine will be playing Hou Yi, a god of archery descended from heaven who shot down 9 suns out of 10 to save mankind. Dilraba will be playing his wife, Chang’e, goddess of the Moon. In one popular variation, as a reward for saving mankind, our archer is given an elixir of immortality. However, he doesn’t consume the pill if his wife isn’t in it with him. However, Chang’e is forced to take the pill when an intruder tries to steal it. The lovers are then separated as Chang’e chooses the moon as her residence.
Archer boy, I’m right here! Shoot me with your arrow of love, please. <3
In exactly one week on 3/1, another big drama will premiere with a gorgeous cast for you to look at. Drama adaptation of Ming Xiao Xi‘s novel The Flame’s Daughter (Lie Huo Ru Ge) has begun its promo rounds, what with the cast appearing on Happy Camp and now the opening themesong by Zhang Jie! What is your impression so far?
Wow. I’m still in shock! They actually managed to keep these two in the drama adaptation of Three Lives Three Worlds The Pillow Book, another story in Three Lives Three Worlds universe. Amazing feat! Book 2 in Tang Qi’s Three Lives Three Worlds series is The Pillow Case, a dedicated love story between Bai Feng Jiu (Bai Qian’s niece, played by Dilraba) and Dong Hua Dijun (played by Vengo Gao). If you have watched Yang Mi’s Eternal Love, you’ll remember these two characters in there as well. In other news, the quick transcript has been approved for a drama adaptation (this one) and a 2-part movie adaptations (likely different casting for drama and movie versions).
Are you happy these two are re-uniting or are you in the camp of new faces?
