The Immortal Ascension (凡人修仙传) is adapted from the novel written by Wang Yu. It follows the story of an ordinary boy who goes on a dangerous road of cultivation to become an immortal. After seeing the trailers, I had this familiar feeling in terms of directing and checked out the director. Sure enough, it’s Yang Yang, the female director in charge of Ever Night, and was also in charge of some beautifully done dramas; Imperfect Victim, A Dream of Splendor, etc.
Why Women Love (不会恋爱的我们) tagline should be: “Is it hot in here?” 😛
Youku describes the story: Gu Jia Xin is full of talents but has no intention of inheriting the family business following his mother’s arrangement for him to become Zhao Jiang Yue’s assistant. The two slowly come together to realize their dreams.
Loosely touted as the Chinese Version of Gossip Girl, Dear Missy (了不起的女孩) stars Jin Chen and Li Yi Tong as two best friends with polar opposite personalities. During their graduation, their friendship plummeted into the ground. Nine years later, they meet and reconcile again, willing to work together to face life’s lemons and challenges.
You Are My Glory tells the romance between top star, Qiao Jing Jing (Dilireba) and aerospace engineer, Yu Tu (Yang Yang). In the ten years they have not met, Qiao Jing Jing has risen in the entertainment industry to become the female star in everyone’s heart. But the male god, who rejected her confession all those years ago, is now stuck between pursuing his dreams and being financially successful. This time, they’ve met again in King of Glory; a mobile game Qiao Jing Jing endorses. To maintain her campaign image, Qiao Jing Jing needs to improve, fast. Like Gu Man’s standard male lead, Yu Tu is a genius who is naturally an amazing gamer, so there is no one better to be her in game teacher. Will the missed romance in their teenage years, be able to blossom this time around? [Written by Iridescent]
