Guan Xiao Tong praying for good vibes in Yumama’s production. Lol.
Two dramas began filming in the last two days. One we already know since Yumama made a big fat mess last time when pulling a switcheroo on us. The other one is headlined by Sha Jie JieMa Ke. This kid has been working back-to-back since Hua Qian Gu. Lol.
This news makes me gloomy on a Sunday! WHYYYYYYYYYYYY. As you know, Yang Rong has been attached to this project for two years and Merxat was recently confirmed as her male lead, but just this morning, Yu Zheng came out to apologize about the cast changes. His reason is the copyrights to film the tv series is going to expire soon and Yang Rong’s schedule has conflict (she’s filming a another project) so the production crew is rushing to start filming right now. As for Merxat, he also can’t film because of a personal reason. The new OTP is now revealed by various news outlets to be Guan Xiao Tong (Novoland The Castle In The Sky) and Song Wei Long (Demon Girl).
The hashtag “grief/sad for Yang Rong” is trending on weibo.
Well, Yang Rong finally has her male lead for the upcoming drama adaptation of novel Feng Qiu Huang (凤囚凰) written by Tian Yi You Feng. It’s actor Merxat, one of Yu Zheng’s well-known group of pretty talents. You might remember him most recently in Memory Lost and Demon Girl. Feng Qiu Huang follows the story of a modern girl who wakes up one day and finds herself in the body of Liu Chu Yu, a princess of the Liu Song Dynasty. The princess is known for telling her younger brother, Emperor Qianfei, about the unfairness in his harem verses hers, at which he granted her thirtysomething male concubines. That sounds awesome… only now our heroine has to finds way to survive, knowing that history isn’t on her brother’s side (he’s overthrown). Dun dun dun!!!
A lot of dramas are coming out (heck nawwww February!!) and a lot started their productions this past week as well. Some will get mentioned, others will get mentioned when there is more info. Never sleep, cdramaland. Cause I don’t need to. *joking joking*
Yep. As honest as I could put it. Lazy bug FTW! Because China produces so many series per year and casting news are hard to catch up. I tried my best to compile this list. The Night Watchman’s Journal is done tomorrow and I’m down to one current project (from six!). Relaxing? You betcha. But November is gonna kill my bandwidth once more. I’m pumped. =D
