And I thought Xiao Zhan’s The Longest Promise (Yu Gu Yao) sounds like The Journey of Flower (Hua Qian Gu), and here comes Chong Zi to take that candle instead. Lol.
Chong Zi (重紫) is based on the novel written by Shu Ke. The story is almost identical to Hua Qian Gu, with the romance being between a highly-respected immortal male lead who takes in our innocent female lead born with the dark force, fated to join the dark side, as his disciple. She does not want to harm anyone but everyone takes turn to torture/harm her just because of her dark force. Her shifu wants to protect her and the world, but struggle to do both. The difference that I noticed between this and HQG is that in here, there are multiple life times/reincarnations, so she does die a few times, even at the hands of the man she completely adores.
Has anyone read both novels and be able to spill more beans? 😛
If I announced each time I was back at the beginning of these posts, they’d probably all start with it. So from now on lets just promise to pretend I didn’t miss any weeks. But nevertheless, another week has ended so here are some pretty photos to brighten up the start of your weekend~.
I totally forgot they were filming a sequel to Novoland: The Castle in the Sky. Part 2 will be following the journey of the leads’ daughter in part 1 and she is played by Wang Yu Wen. With powerful forces trying to gain power by kidnapping our heroine, she’s aided by a strong cultivator, played by Jeremy Xu Zheng Xi.
Upcoming palace drama, Legend of The Phoenix (凤弈) stars Jones Xu and He Hong Shan. Our female lead is a dancer in a troupe invited to perform in the palace for the Empress Dowager’s birthday but she gets into trouble with a princess (played by Liu Min) and is luckily saved by our male lead, an advisor. She never forgets about him and two years later, she becomes a palace maid, working under the Queen. She attracts the attention of the King and grows feelings for the unforgettable man. Inadvertently, she also becomes involved in the power battles of the palace (as usual). XD
The two look pretty cute in the trailers so here’s to hoping!
