Must be booting week because a bunch of dramas started to film! Just a quick rundown, I’ll write more in details when they have their separate introduction post ~
Palace drama Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) is adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, following the marriage between Qianlong Emperor (Wallace Huo) and Ulanara (Zhou Xun), the Step Empress during the Qing dynasty. I don’t know what to think about this series…. the countless ladies and wives fighting and scheming for one man for many, many cycles of new faces. 90 episodes isn’t appealing either but there is always an audience for this type of dramas so there’s that.
Palace drama Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) is adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, following the marriage between Qianlong Emperor (Wallace Huo) and Ulanara (Zhou Xun), the Step Empress during the Qing dynasty. I honestly don’t think this is my type of story; countless number of scheming ladies conspiring for and against each other. Lol. The new batch of stills only consists of half of the ladies thrown in the pitting box to fight for Qianlong’s affections. One hell of a lucky role for any male actor.
And it has whopping 90 episodes! I CANNOT. YOU. 1#***3%@#!#@!~~~!!!
Well, well, well. Another shelved Chen Xiao’s drama, Above The Clouds (云巅之上), finally got the green light to air after two years. You will see the usual Yu Zheng’s stars (boys from Memory Lost), beside the OTP couple played by Chen Xiao and Yuan Shan Shan, with her starring as a country pumpkin going to the city to find her biological mother but somehow ends up as an actress who struggles against numerous showbiz wars and current flower ladies.
Time to marry off another one of Bu Bu Jing Xin princes! Lol. I’m liking this tradition. ^__^ It’s time to let 13th go! If based on the current records so far, these princes are romantic to the T. Congratulations!!
First trailer is out and it’s cray cray all the way through. How many foot trips and slaps can one take in the showbiz before one explodes? Above the Clouds is Yumama‘s first venture into the glitz and glam of modern world. Lol. The story follows our heroine (Yuan Shan Shan) as she moves from the country to the big city to find her biological mother. Somehow, she ends up in the acting world and has to fight with fellow rising starlets for the chance in the spotlight (because you either rise or fall). She meets arrogant top star (Chen Xiao) and melts his heart with her pure beauty and passion for acting.
Yu Zheng’s first modern drama (he’s the producer), tentatively called Love Up In the Air (or Cloud in the Air) has a booting ceremony to begin filming on April 18th. I think he’s only interested in messing with the wuxia world; Modern world is enough of a chaotic place without his paws on them. Chen Xiao (Romance of the Condor Heroes) and Yuan Shan Shan (City of Angels) are the leads. I did not remember these two were paired up way back in Beauties of the Emperor! I hated her character so much in that drama…..she literally got every single man she wanted in there! Truth be told, I’m not a fan of this pairing. Yuan Shan Shan has yet to capture me with her performance. Might this be the one?
