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)
The first Chinese drama I ever saw was “Novoland: Castle in the Sky” and it’s what jump-started my love of C-dramas, so when I saw the trailer for the Novoland-inspired The Legend of the Naga Pearl, it caught my attention. It also stars Crystal Zhang who was in my favorite comedy, “Go, Princess, Go”, and I’ve been wanting to see her again in something else. This is a visually stunning, fantasy and adventure movie about a thief, a detective and a prince who try to save their city, Uranopolis, from the apocalypse.
It’s finally ending! I have never been this excited to see a drama end, to put me out of my misery. As Princess Agents broke another dramaland record of surpassing 40 Billion online views during its run, I’m equal parts happy and annoyed. Lol. Happy for the hard work the actors and crew put in but annoyed that now the writer and director would think the secret to a ratings hit is a combination of half-assed story line and inept directing. See, cdramaland needs less of those and more of a step-up in all directions.
