Wow. The trailers definitely set a different type of bar for intimacy in Chinese dramas! Retourner le monde a toi or Return the World To You is a modern drama with Yang Shuo and Guli Nazha, following our strong-willed heroine as she faces the obstacles in her smooth-sailing life. She works in the fashion industry and has a great job and perfect boyfriend (Yang Shuo) until he’s struck down during an accident and supposedly passes away. She doesn’t dwell too long in hurt and heart-break and continues to build up her fashion company. Unbeknownst to her, her boyfriend survives the crash and is sent overseas to heal, only to come back under a different face and identity, hoping to find out the truth about his murder. He runs into old girlfriend and becomes her opponent at work, but their love for each other will eventually heal old wounds.
Su Mang, the editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar China is the fashion stylist of the drama and Jane Zhang will be in charge of the music, with a song in mind for Guli Nazha to sing as well.
Dynasty Warriors (真・三國無双) (“True・Three Kingdoms Unrivaled“) is a series of action games which draws inspiration from the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and details the epic struggles of power between three kingdoms in ancient China. It stars Wang Kai, Han Geng, Louis Koo, and Tony Yang as some of the biggest historical figures.
Awww man, our Mr. Smile aka Shawn Dou Xiao will be doing another modern drama… but it sounds so dark and gloomy! Hear me cry. It’s adapted from manga series Asunaro Hakusho (あすなろ白書 “Asunaro White Paper”) by Fumi Saimon.
