Darren Chen teams up with Zhang Yi Shang to fight evil in No Boundary (Yu Zhao Ling)

No boundary (Yu Zhao Ling, 玉昭令) is based on the novel written by Wei Yu. The story follows our heroine who descends into the human realm and sets up her own sect to fight off evil and keep peace. She’s joined by a handsome guard, our hero. Or if you prefer the Qiyi’s summary:

In the Shang Dynasty, King Zhou, the cruel ruler, was replaced by Ji Wu. During the investiture of the Gods, Jiang Ziya gave up on his divine throne. He was willing to be the marquis in the human realm to ensure that his goddaughter, Duanmu Cui (Zhang Yi Shang), could become the immortal. Thousands of years later, in the Song Dynasty, he became Bao Qingtian. At the same time, Duanmu Cui descended to the mortal world and established the Xihualiu Sect. Under Bao Qingtian’s order, fourth-grade-military officer, Zhan Zhao (Darren Chen), was ordered to help Duanmu Cui. After sticking together through thick and thin for several times, love secretly grows between them.

Chen Hao Yu and Zhuang Da Fei in I Don’t Want To Be Friends With You

I Don’t Want To Be Friends With You (我才不要和你做朋友呢) is a modern drama that features a time-traveling portion. Our female lead is a 17 years old high school student played by Zhuang Da Fei who grew up living with her single mom, played by Chen Hao Yu. For whatever reason we don’t know, she’s transported back in time and becomes classmate with her mom when she was 17 years old. This sound like Taiwanese drama Back to 1989 but we have a clearer purpose there on the importance of his trip back in time (still I dropped it! Lol.) I like that this time, it’s a mother-daughter duo. She learns about her mother’s bravery and sensibility, which helps solves the knots between them in the present.

Airing 5/19!
