My Deepest Dream (乌云遇皎月) is an upcoming modern drama adapted from the sci-fi novel written by Ding Mo starring Li Yi Tong and Jin Han. The storyline is quite complicated so I’ll try to simplify it….I hope. XD Our leads first meet on a cruise and at the time; he was a mathematics graduate, described as wise, clean, and sharp, and she was a web writer. They speak briefly but the conversation is enough for them to feel the attraction. But due to a minor misunderstanding, she leaves the cruise feeling unhappy. A year later, they meet for the second time and now he’s transformed completely, he’s a broody repairman. Though she does not recognize him, he still manages to attract her. What has happened in a span of a year for a man to change that much? They thought leaving the cruise a year ago meant their path has ended, but it’s quite the opposite. Apparently, the cruise they were on had an accident and the people on the cruise went missing for a time period. They were later rescued and compensated by the travel agency but there’s one caveat – the passengers can’t remember what happened during their time on the cruise. (I don’t know what this means?)
So what happened to our male lead during the one year period? His sister was brutally murdered by a serial killer and his mother eventually passed away due to heartache. He leaves everything behind him, armed with a passion to find the killer. He settles down as a repairman as it’s the only place of peace for him. Ah, I think I kinda get the story now. He time-travels to the past to find the killer before he kills his sister. Along the way, he and female lead get involved with many cases. He’s the dark clouds and she’s the bright moon shining over him.
Ok, did I fail? Anyone who has read the novel and has a better understanding of the timeline, feel free to help/correct me. Lol.
Twisted Fate of Love (今夕何夕) is adapted (or some would say) loosely inspired by the novel written by Shi Jiu. Our female lead is a strong, badass female general who’s sent back in time to stop a war from happening. Through her time-travel, she meets a pair of best friends – minister male lead and Third Prince second lead. Lol. And she, of course, becomes the source of inspiration and heartache for both as their friendship is tested. The nation is crumbling so will these three rise above personal feelings to protect the people?
Our leads share the same set of small teeth. heheh.
A year after the series ended, we now have, hopefully, a proper ending. It’s based on the novel written by Xue Man Liang Yuan and if the drama follows the novel, it is most likely a sad ending. I didn’t watch Royal Nirvana last year so have no idea where they ended the series. But the additional 12 episodes are not newly filmed. The original was edited/cut so now we are getting the unaired footage compiled.
Looks like this could be a decent drama? Luo Jin leads the Royal Nirvana as the Crown Prince whose merits are deemed as a threat to the current King and he struggles to be a dutiful son and crown prince at the same time. On the other hand, the king’s illegitimate son played by Jin Han furtively plants traps to dislodge his brother off the royal chair. In one of his schemes, he frames his brother for the death of an official, setting official’s daughter (Li Yi Tong) on a path of vengeance against his brother.
EDIT: Such a quiet premiere (thanks Lenje!), it started airing on 11/11, 3 new episodes every Monday and Thursday.
This is gonna be trailers galore folks. I’m serious. Both Qiyi and HNTV had their quarterly event the past two days and had been showing off their next batch of dramas to screen! Plus, just a few more dramas for October ~~
Long gone are the days I can focus on one drama per post. xD
Guess who’s home and have time to watch dramas! Kappy! Why? She got her four wisdom teeth extracted. Bloody hell, let me tell you. I’ve been high on pain drugs for the past 3 days. I think it makes me nice and tolerant of everything. Lol.
The new music video by Kym makes this drama look like it’s made for die-hard fans of Li Ying who has been starved of her OTP scenes in recent dramas because it’s loaded with sweet moments between her and Jin Han. Lol. He’s quite tall around her too so when he pulls her in for a hug, I just melt. Of course, all based on a 4-minute music video.
