Upcoming period drama The Twin Flower Legend (长相守) is based on the novel written by Hai Piao Xue and follows the story of twin sisters. I like how the synopsis makes no mention of the other twin and only writes about the good twin, the one with many suitors! xD So the other twin has to be the evil one? Lol. The main twin is played by Mao Xiao Hui and the love of her life is played by Yu Xiao Tong (ah, how he has grown!). The twin sisters are sold as slaves to a powerful household, where they meet three other kids and become a small knitted family, with a promise to protect and love each other. She’s a tough cookie and uses her intelligence and skills to rise up the ranks, making four men go goo-goo over her. (This sounds tragically similar to many many period dramas….)
The trailer is fun to watch, I have never seen this many (ex) tvb/HK actors in one before. Lolol.
Hot dang! It’s December already…2017 is coming to an end. I can’t believe it. How time just flew over our head this year. We still have another month worth of dramas to watch! This is about half of them. Lol….
With my new job, I don’t have a lot of spare time these days like before, especially on week days. Won’t be able to cut and upload individual clips so you guys have to work those warrior fingers through the scrolling button! Lol.
First official stills are out! Upcoming costume drama As Flowers Fade and Fly Across the Sky (花谢花飞花满天) will always break my heart because it should be Viann Zhang and Zhu Yi Long‘s reunion drama! GAH. But it’s not! Now your heart is broken too. Lol. Hey, I can’t be the only one suffering! Friends! ❤
Good thing is… everybody looks great in here, nice hair, nice costumes. Visual Feast.
Reunion! Between the leads, Zhu Yi Long and Viann Zhang, from last year’s Border Town Prodigal. The latest costume series began filming on January 2nd with other actors such as Peter Ho, Li Xin Ai, Zhu Zi Xiao, and Yu Xiao Tong. From my drama knowledge, the title Hua Xie Hua Fei Hua Man Tian (花谢花飞花满天) or As Blooms/Flowers Fade and Fly Across the Sky is based on a long poem from the classic novel The Story of the Stone aka Dream of the Red Chamber. It has been remade into a song and you can listen and read the translation at the end. However, there’s also a novel with the same name which I’m positive it’s adapted from. According to the synopsis, bandit’s son (Peter) acquires an injury as a child and loses his memory. He then gets adopted by by another pair of kind parents. Years later, he takes it upon himself to search for their missing daughter (Viann Zhang) who was kidnapped by his very own biological father. After rescuing her, he regains his memory and reunites with his real father. They then work together to clear his father’s reputation against a big bad boss.
Wait up, wait up, so Peter is the lead? Oh Yi Long…
My, My, My. The premiere dates be dropping left and right in July! Zhang Han‘s detective webdrama, The Ten Deadly Sins (十宗罪), based on the novel of the same name written by Zhi Zhu, will also enter the mix. The novel is popular for detailing the accounts of real crimes throughout of China and many said they couldn’t finish the gory descriptions. How much of the rawness could translate onscreen effectively? We shall find out when it airs on July 20th. Trailer and interviews at the end of the post.
