Following the trend from our previous post, is Hu Ge considered a swoony uncle for some now? 🤭
Synopsis for Bright Future (县委大院) from Daylight Entertainment on Youtube: tells the story of Mei Xiaoge, secretary of the county party committee, and his colleagues uniting the people to build Guangming County, showing the style of grassroots cadres and masses; On the eve of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Mei Xiaoge took up the post of county magistrate of Guangming County, and became colleagues with county party secretary Lu Qingshan and deputy secretary Ai Xianzhi. At this time, they were confronted with Guangming County, which was in urgent need of restoration and development, with various problems and troubles. One after another. Mei Xiaoge has a high emotional intelligence and good affinity, and gradually gets along with colleagues to balance the contradictions in the governance process; she also has the courage to break the boat, and has traveled non-stop to hundreds of villages in Guangming County after taking office. After being elected secretary of the county party committee, Mei Xiaoge devoted himself to deepening the reform of cadres’ style of work, adhered to the concept of green development, guaranteed people’s livelihood on the basis of protecting the environment, and optimized county education. With the efforts of the county party committee team, Guangming County’s dream of getting rid of poverty, becoming rich and developing healthily has finally been realized. Young cadres also continue to grow through practice and training, do a good job of inheritance, overturn the invisible barriers between cadres and the masses, and the relationship between cadres and the masses has taken on a new look.
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.
According to the latest update, Princess Agents will end at episode 67. It will air 2 episodes per its usual run (mon-thursday), then one episode per day on 7/30, 7/31, 8/1 (finale). The production team also made a dent in dramaland history by surpassing 30 Billions views before the drama ends. Congratulations to the team!
Here we are at the second major arc in the story. Everyone makes a decision in these episodes, decisions that have deadly consequences. Decisions that they will have to live with for the rest of their lives. Besides the innocent civilians, nobody else is innocent, everybody has blood on their hands. And I have come to understand Yan Xun’s central role in the story; what happened because of him and due to him, sets the trajectories for the rest of the characters and story.
He’s the stimulus, kicking all the sleeping characters to fight for their faith. I suddenly feel enlightened about the novel as a whole.
I’m in the minority, I do not want a second season, with or without the original cast. After the hellish world the director and writer put me through with 60+ episodes, why would I want them to do it again? They will possibly add more unnecessary plot lines to make it another 60+ production, with Chu Qiao fainting every episode, she might have amnesia again in season 2. Lol. Filming up to the ice lake arc is to me sufficient, it’s a defining moment where Chu Qiao knows about Yue’s feelings, the rest of the chapters…. more battles and Yan Xun’s cruelty. I don’t need those, either!
Anyway, this will be a tough week to watch as everything descends into madness. Hold on to your seat!
He’s here! He’s here! Our foxy Prince is here! Like a burst of fresh air. With everyone faces hanging on doom and gloom, it’s nice to see some smiles around. Why I adore Xiao Che so much in the novel: he’s a delightful mix of pre-massacre Yan Xun with his abundance of sunshine and Yue’s slyness and intelligence. Like the best candy in the world! ❤
My snarky side came today so memes are here. Thanks Maymay who helped with these recaps!
