Must be booting week because a bunch of dramas started to film! Just a quick rundown, I’ll write more in details when they have their separate introduction post ~
Where the Lost Ones Go (可惜不是你) is a modern webdrama that’s airing on Hunan Mango TV with Fan Shi Qi (Ice Fantasy) and Song Yan Fei (Hero Dog 3) and follows the OTP’s beautiful, dream-like love that began in college and they thought they could go through thick and thin together but fate has thrown many wrenches. Our hero’s mother has accumulated a debt so large that he leaves the heroine behind without a word and gets embroiled in the justice system, ending up in jail. Not knowing the truth, our heroine falls apart, enduring loneliness and despair, waiting for his return, slowly working towards her dream of becoming a cartoonist. He returns four years later and wants to rekindle but she’s now faced with pressure from another marriage proposal.
Hua Jiang Hu Zhi Bu Liang Ren (画江湖之不良人) is the drama adaption of a Wuxia animation series of the same name (like Qin’s Moon). The story takes place during the Tang Dynasty and revolves around a secret government agency trying to obtain a national treasure weapon called the dragon sword. To do that, they assassinated two great martial artists, leaving their kids to survive in the chaotic world. The kids are played by Zheng Ye Cheng, otherwise known as Hao Mei from Just One Smile is Very Alluring, and Li Chun (Hua Qiao Gu). They are taken in and taught martial arts by Elder Yang. In their journey in jianghu to uncover the conspiracy of the secret group, they meet the love of their lives in Cai Wen Jing and Fan Shi Qi.
The majority of the cast is related to Zhao Li Ying. It’s nice that everyone is branching off to do their own things.
Look who’s playing catch-up. It took me a while to write this post. Trust me when I say I REALLY want to like this drama, it has an interesting premise but the execution of the story doesn’t raise anticipation or curiosity, since we already know many facts before the characters, which makes everything less suspenseful for us.
If you love this show with the intensity of a thousand suns, please don’t burn down my post. 😛 I encourage discussion as long as people are peaceful!
Hey drifters. Due to the lack of time and prioritizing sleep over everything else, I phoned our latest drama-crazed resident, Shimokuren, to lend a hand in writing a quick first impression for Gui Gui‘s ongoing drama, A Different Kind of Pretty Man, currently airing two episodes a week on Sundays. I can’t thank her enough for going through with this crazy plan, even innocently thinking that it was one long episode. Poor Shimo.
Without further ado, let us know your thoughts on the drama! 😀 – Kap
Previously thought to be Meteor Shower 3, the story has come out to be independent in storyline and characters, thus the name change to A Different Kind of Pretty Man. And he is sure different. What with powers and whatnots after he got into a car accident?
