Hi Drifters! Back with another convince me/mini first impressions podcast, this time, about a lesser-known drama called Qing Qing Zi Jin! Adapted from Wu Yu’s novel “Gong Xue Has Bandits” this historical romantic-comedy has intrigued two of our AVV staff members, Lin and Wuxiarocks, and they try and convince Amy to watch. Will they be successful? Listen to find out :))
Qing Qing Zi Jin (青青子衿) is a period drama starring Fan Shi Qi and Lu Xiao Yu. The topic is about poetry guys! Our male lead is an aspiring poet who enters an academy to further his studies and ends up changing the style of poetry in a new way.
To air 8/17!
Love Like White Jade (白玉思无瑕) is an upcoming period drama featuring Zhang Yao, who recently was in Love In Between, and Wan Peng from My Girlfriend is an Alien. Our female lead is hired to help our male lead’s in literature and martial arts. While they clash due to opposite personalities, she’s secretly looking for her missing twin brother, and he’s investigating the death of his father. When the truth is revealed, the same person is the culprit of both cases. The two finally work together to face the hardships and challenges ahead.
As fate would have it they were also in When We Were Young (人不彪悍枉少年) when he was the second male lead and she was the female lead. AHA!
Unrelated to part one with Zhao Li Ying and William Chan, The Legend of Zu Season 2 is still headed by Nicky Wu, who also acts as one of the three producers. It’s led by a rookie cast with Yu Ting Er and Chen Zhe Yuan in the leading roles.
