Behind-The-Scenes videos: Tribes and Empires, Ever Night, Legend of Fu Yao, Sweet Dreams

You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.

Peter Ho, Zhu Yi Long, and Viann Zhang in As Flowers Fade and Fly Across the Sky

Reunion! Between the leads, Zhu Yi Long and Viann Zhang, from last year’s Border Town Prodigal. The latest costume series began filming on January 2nd with other actors such as Peter Ho, Li Xin Ai, Zhu Zi Xiao, and Yu Xiao Tong. From my drama knowledge, the title Hua Xie Hua Fei Hua Man Tian (花谢花飞花满天) or As Blooms/Flowers Fade and Fly Across the Sky is based on a long poem from the classic novel The Story of the Stone aka Dream of the Red Chamber. It has been remade into a song and you can listen and read the translation at the end. However, there’s also a novel with the same name which I’m positive it’s adapted from. According to the synopsis, bandit’s son (Peter) acquires an injury as a child and loses his memory. He then gets adopted by by another pair of kind parents. Years later, he takes it upon himself to search for their missing daughter (Viann Zhang) who was kidnapped by his very own biological father. After rescuing her, he regains his memory and reunites with his real father. They then work together to clear his father’s reputation against a big bad boss.

Wait up, wait up, so Peter is the lead? Oh Yi Long…
