Chinese remake of Kdrama Signal led by Li Xiao Ran, Du Chun, and Wang Tian Chen

Unknown Number (时空来电) is the Chinese remake of Kdrama Signal starring Li Xiao Ran, Du Chun, and Wang Tian Chen. I haven’t watched the original but have heard of numerous praises for the plot and acting caliber of the original cast. Of the Chinese cast, Wang Tian Chen is the most green and you might remember him in General and I, The Way We Were and or Tang Dynasty Tour. Either way, he has a big shoes to follow Lee Jae Hoon’s performance. The original was inspired by a true incident and that involves a serial rapist and murderer. The story follows police lieutenant played by Wang as he tries to investigate the death of his childhood’s friend that was left unsolved for years. He’s aided when he discovers a walkie-talkie and the man talking to him through the phone is the detective from the past (literally) trying to solve the case. Now I want to watch the original. Sounds like a TVB drama too!

Unknown Number begins airing tonight 10/23!

Movie Review: The Wasted Times (Cmovie, 2016)

One of my favorite Chinese movies, The Wasted Times, is now on Viki so I had to review it. I watched this last year during a trip to China and was really drawn in to the story as well as the incredible cinematography so I was eager to watch it again. It’s a dark drama about a Chinese mob boss and a Japanese national, which starts just before the Japanese invasion of Shanghai through to the end of the Sino-Japanese War, and stars Ge You (To Live) and Tadanobu Asano (Thor: Ragnarok).
