The highly anticipated palace drama, Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传), adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, has wrapped up its 87 episode long journey. Kappy wrote a first impressions when the drama started airing in August and since I was following the series, I wanted to see your opinion on the finale last night.
Did you enjoy the show? What did you like or dislike about the series? Throw in your opinions on other elements such as acting, OST, cinematography. I want to know them all.
The process felt longer didn’t it? They filmed quite fast for an ancient drama! Legend of Fu Yao (扶摇) is adapted from the novel written by Tian Xia Gui Yuan with Yang Mi and Ethan Ruan as the main leads. And of course, you will see her harem of pretty kids as well. =P
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.
Due to the confusion in the last post, I will say it here that Tong Hua‘s novel, The Starry Night The Starry Sea (那片星空那片海), was published in 2015, way before Lee Min Ho’s Legend of the Blue Sea even started casting in 2016. With that off my chest, mermaid form Feng Shao Feng is scary-looking. LOL. If I see him anywhere in the water, I would stop breathing immediately and not pull him in a kiss like Haden Kuo did in the new trailer. XD It’s also nice to have a fierce-looking merman for once since they almost always look kind and lovely. Second trailer is intense.
Really looking forward to this! Weeeeee! Ending themesong by Zhou Shen is uploaded at the end.
Another year of weibo night. To be honest, the awards seem to matter less and less each year. Show up? Here ya go. Beside the Weibo King and Queen of the Year, I didn’t really read about the others. Lol.
