Love In Flames of War (良辰好景知几何) is a republican drama based on the novel of the same name written by Ling Xi.
GAH. I’m so torn. Mr. SunShine is back but I’m not fond of republican dramas at all. I feel like they start to look and feel the same after a few episodes. The novel sounds coo-coo for coo-coo birds too! The male lead is described as a young marshal who is possessive and cruel, and even forcibly “takes” her, so she hates his guts. Now I’m eyeing that word in quotes questioningly because if it’s the R, then I’m out. She’s a fallen miss and meets our male lead when she was 15, and when she was 19, he shot her first love and killed him…. Ahum, I believe they will change a lot of things to make the drama less disturbing for public viewing and more melodramatic for their tagline of “heart-wrenching romance.” As for Chen Du Ling….she hasn’t impressed me as an actress and the stills do not lift that skepticism – she has the exact same expression in all her pictures. XD
Love Designer (幸福触手可及) is a modern drama adapted from the novel written by Ai Xiao Tu featuring the constant snarkings between our fashion designer female lead and e-commerce company leader male lead. They are caught in a lawsuit and must now work together to get out unscathed.
Yay! We get to see the almost full set of characters and their hairstyles. Lol. I still haven’t touched the novel yet. *fail*
Legend of Fei (有翡) is based on the novel You Fei/Bandits (有匪) written by Priest. It sounds like your typical wuxia drama that takes place during the Northern and Southern dynasties (?), where legends have fallen to the chaotic world, allowing room for the new rising heroes of the pugilistic world, some of which are our leading lady and man, Zhou Fei (Zhao Li Ying) and Xie Yun (Wang Yi Bo). Our female lead grew up in a neutral zone where there is no war, known collectively as the 48 tribes, so she leads a pretty peaceful life. That changes when her father is invited to join the Southern region, and she is forced to enter jianghu shortly after. Our male lead is an optimist, who knows a lot about the world because he has basically done a lot of jobs. His expertise? Running away and talking his way in/out of things (Lol). During our female lead’s journey, he is there to help her as she slowly becomes a hero in her own right.
With the same producer behind Hong Kong hit series, Triumph In The Skies, Mainland has their own version of aviation themed drama starring Chen Qiao En, Ryan Zheng Kai, and Zhu Zi Xiao called New Horizon (壮志高飞). Miss Chen will play flight attendant who then pursues a pilot career and meets two handsome men. Ryan plays a pilot who turned engineer after he accidentally caused the death of Zhu’s mother during a flight and carries that burden to retire as a pilot. Zhu Zi Xiao plays the prince of the airline company, of course the only company since everyone works under it. Lol!
Second sports drama to come here real soon is Mr. Swimmer (游泳先生), starring Thai actor Mike D. Angelo (Wu Xin: The Monster Killer) and Ju Jing Yi (Detective Samoyeds) as a pair of bickering couple. He’s a genius swimmer talent with humble beginning and she’s a rich miss whose family takes a tumble. Her boyfriend for an unknown reason breaks up with her, and he’s the male lead’s good friend. The boys then begin to compete in every aspect of life, from love to career. They train strictly for their upcoming national swimming competition, and before the battle begins, good friend’s father threatens our male lead into losing the battle. To uphold justice and maintain honor and sportsmanship, good friend defends male lead and returns his reputation. Through many twists and turns, the three youths build a a sense of responsibility and perseverance, releasing an inner shine of outstanding youths.
PEACHHHHHHH!! Lolol. Your couple is front news! hee! Everyone should love this post since it’s all about pretty and kindness! I forgot who said this quote, but doing charity only has a beginning, it never ends. There was no crazy fashion tonight, everyone looks good with what they chose and for once I’m a happy camper with Li Ying’s stylist (I’m more picky with her! xD)
