Uh Oh. Supposedly leaked photos for the upcoming adaptation of Jin Yong’s The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber are said to be circulating the net. If Hu Yi Tian gets the main role, his stardom is basically secured for the foreseeable future. But then I see Niu Jun Feng (Princess Agents) up for the same role and my heart breaks! I adore the lad and if we go by past adaptations, the main hero isn’t exactly the handsome type. Lol. But a handsome man explains why all the girls fall for the kind-hearted hero too (shallow, I know!)…. Then there’s miss Jian Ren Zi (My Sunshine) who is in the running for the role Zhou Zhi Ruo.
Maybe I’m getting older or maybe my taste has never changed to begin with. Boy-crazy heroines drive me off the wall. Lol. My experience with this drama is interesting. While I recapped, my level of frustration level was kept at bay, but after the recap, in hindsight, I had to tskk-tskk at all the good moments that the writer let pass for the sake of love. Had it been in a stronger writer’s hand, these moments would have demonstrated good character growth and depth.
Awwww. The height difference is so freakin cute! Modern youth cdrama A Love So Beautiful (致我们单纯的小美好) stars rookie actors, Hu Yi Tian and Shen Yue, and is based on the novel written by Zhao Gan Gan. The story reminds me a lot of Taiwanese drama It Started With A Kiss, the tall smart guy in school having a small cute girl chasing after him, except she isn’t as frustratingly dimmed as the latter heroine; he later becomes a doctor and she a Comics artist. It’s very similar to the thousands of youth dramas out there so I’m interested to see how they will make this fresh and heart-warming, especially since the writer behind the successful With You worked on the scripts with five other cohorts. =D
