Meng Hua Lu (汴京梦华图) has quietly begun filming on 2/17. The story follows our heroine as she works her way to make a career for herself during the Song Dynasty. Our heroine is a tea house owner waiting for her fiancé to pass the imperial examination. When he does pass it, he breaks the engagement (what a jerk!) Unwilling to accept such fate, she travels to the capitol to seek justice. Along her journey, she saves and makes friends with two women. Both have miserable life and marriages – one is tricked into marriage and is being treated unkindly, the other is stuck in an unhappy marriage and wants to commit suicide to end it all. When her ex-fiancé learns that she’s coming, he uses various methods to kick her out. But the three friends are not going anywhere despite the obstacles and challenges they face as women during the time. From a small tea house, their business grows into the most well-known restaurant of Biàn Jīng (Today’s Kai Feng). Hmmm, where does Chen Xiao fit in here? At least, he gets to romance another Little Dragon Girl. 😉
Other cast members include Lin Yun, Liu Yan, and Wang Yan Lin. I’m sure Wang Yan Lin is gonna play the jerk fiancé already. LOL.
You Are My Glory tells the romance between top star, Qiao Jing Jing (Dilireba) and aerospace engineer, Yu Tu (Yang Yang). In the ten years they have not met, Qiao Jing Jing has risen in the entertainment industry to become the female star in everyone’s heart. But the male god, who rejected her confession all those years ago, is now stuck between pursuing his dreams and being financially successful. This time, they’ve met again in King of Glory; a mobile game Qiao Jing Jing endorses. To maintain her campaign image, Qiao Jing Jing needs to improve, fast. Like Gu Man’s standard male lead, Yu Tu is a genius who is naturally an amazing gamer, so there is no one better to be her in game teacher. Will the missed romance in their teenage years, be able to blossom this time around? [Written by Iridescent]
Sorry, this post is a bit delayed, a little incidence happened and my presence was needed elsewhere after work. In any case, our girl turns the big 30 today! I’m sure she’s feeling the pressure from friends and families to find the special person and settle down but I do want her to know that she should go at her own pace. Some folks hurry into commitments and not take the time to explore and find happiness within themselves. You gotta love yourself first, before loving and allowing love to come into your life!
New promotional materials. Both Wu Xin The Monster Killer Season 2 and The Destiny of White Snake release an extended trailer of 10 whopping minutes. And finally, an air date for one of the two above dramas!
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!
