This looks adorable. Since young, our female lead has been bed-ridden sick whenever she forms attachments/falls in love, so she guards her heart protectively. However, to protect her brother in Qing Yun Academy, she disguises her a male student to follow him. There she meets the overbearing and arrogant nobleman who despises marriages due to the many failed relationships, leaving him broken-hearted. Aww. Poor lad.
Love Never Fails (落花时节又逢君) is adapted from the novel When Spring Ends, I’ll See You Again by Shu Ke. It’s nice to see second male lead reunited with female lead in a new drama as the male lead. 😉 The story follows the journey of our female, a red camellia sprite who falls in love at first sight with the male lead at a Flower Festival. He is not a nobody! He’s one of the greatest gods in heaven. She wants to become his empress and to that request, he tells her to cultivate until she can reach the heavenly/immortal realm. To do that, she enters the human realm to go through a trial. There in the mortal realm, she meets the second male lead, a handsome nobleman who is looking for true love himself. His land oversees the flower field where she’s planted as a Camellia. He wants to renovate the garden and in order to stop him, she turns to her human self at night and begs him not to take away her home. Our second male lead begins to like this strong and independent flower fairy and promises not to ruin her field as long as she comes and hangs with him every night. Even though she confesses to liking someone else, second male lead reaffirms her that it’s okay. His human life doesn’t last long and if he could spend his short years with her, he’s contented, and she can easily go back to the immortal man she’s cultivating for after his death.
Why is that so damn tragically sweet.
Something happens and our second male lead sacrifices himself to save our heroine. She, moved and touched by him, requests the male lead to remove her cultivation thus far and makes her a mortal being, so she can repay second male lead. This begins her ten lifetimes of reincarnation, each one she makes big and small decisions, and bears the results bravely.
Quite like the sound of this female lead from the reviews so far!
Zheng Ye Cheng is back in dramaland! This only wrapped up filming in June so this is fast for a period drama. Not much details about the plot but The Sleepless Princess (离人心上) follows our unfavorable princess (Hu Yi Xuan) who suffers from insomnia and her hilarious romance with a cold general who’s investigating the mystery around his brother’s death.
