Luo Jin and Li Yi Tong struggle between duty and love in Royal Nirvana

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.

First Impression: What do you think of Our Glamourous Time with Zhao Li Ying and Jin Han?

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.

I want to be swooned, show, ya hear me?!

Jin Han sweeps Zhao Li Ying off her feet in Our Glamorous Time’s first teaser

I’m sure I read that this story is about the business industry (boring!) but the first teaser makes it quite exciting with Jin Han literally sweeping Zhao Li Ying off her feet and stealing hugs and one kiss (so far). There are also quite a few cameos from other celebrities. Can you catch them all? Lol. Our Glamorous Time (你和我的倾城时光) is adapted from Ding Mo‘s novel and our male lead returns home from the military to help his family from bankruptcy and is involved in a guaranteed sweet love story with our strong yet feminine female lead.

Princess Agents Discussion Post Week 9: Episodes 65 – 67 Finale

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.
