Used to be called Palace Step by Step to Fade, palace drama Love Story of Court Enemies (那江烟花那江雨) is set during the Qing dynasty featuring Zhao Yi Qin and Wu Jia Yi. Filming was completed two years ago. It follows two sisters who were separated during a rebellion and after their whole family was killed. To find the culprits behind the family’s tragedy, our heroine follows her sister into the palace after finding out she was drafted to become a royal consort. She begins her training as a chef, even impressing the Emperor, and later on picking up medical skills which was helpful during the widespread illness. During her journey, she’s aided by a handsome, loyal General in our male lead.
It’s hard to focus on one drama per post when they churn out news endlessly throughout the day. Of the three dramas featured in here, I’m not sure which one I will watch. Nothing Gold Can Stay have weird coupling chemistry going on, The King’s Woman looks twisty and I don’t like mean lead guys even if he’s Zhang Bin Bin, but Dilreba looks stunning in all the stills, and Xuan Yuan Sword: Cloud of Han Dynasty…. I’m iffy about everyone’s okay acting. Lol.
Am I too hard to please? Or too jaded for dramaland?
Xuan Yuan Sword: Clouds of Han (轩辕剑之汉之云) is the upcoming drama adaptation of popular Chinese game franchise Xuan Yuan Sword, featuring Leon Zhang Yun Long and Alan Yu Meng Long as brothers who were separated and brought up as warriors on opposite side. Bromance!
The melody of the songs are lovely so I did wish it was given to stronger vocals. It is a pretty drama!
Since I already proved to everyone how busy January will be, it’s followed that I won’t be able to upload every one of them. Maybe later in the year when it is less busy and requests roll it. Thank-you!
Apparently, they want to get this out as soon as possible. I can see the haste in these endless dish of promo posters, stills, and trailers (less is more people!). Based on the novel A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated, General and I features Wallace Chung and Angelababy as the gorgeous OTP that will kick off 2017 with a bang. Hopefully, not the type of bang to kill all of our brain cells. GO GO GO!
Premiering on January 2nd. Compiled promo materials of this past week after the jump.
*UPDATED WITH MORE STILLS. Lol. Just a few hours after this post is published…
Another new song! And more endless pretty. Hope you aren’t tired yet of the promotions. Lol. I think I need to listen to it a few more tries to really feel it. Potential. Wallace Chung will also sing a song. 🙂
