Shawn Dou confirms Asunaro Hakusho adaptation ‘Ten Years Late’ with Gulnazar, attends Tribes and Empire press conference

Awww man, our Mr. Smile aka Shawn Dou Xiao will be doing another modern drama… but it sounds so dark and gloomy! Hear me cry. It’s adapted from manga series Asunaro Hakusho (あすなろ白書 “Asunaro White Paper”) by Fumi Saimon.

Behind-The-Scenes videos: Tribes and Empires, Ever Night, Legend of Fu Yao, Sweet Dreams

You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.

Zhou Xun, Wallace Huo, and more adorn royal head pieces in Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace

Palace drama Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) is adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, following the marriage between Qianlong Emperor (Wallace Huo) and Ulanara (Zhou Xun), the Step Empress during the Qing dynasty. I don’t know what to think about this series…. the countless ladies and wives fighting and scheming for one man for many, many cycles of new faces. 90 episodes isn’t appealing either but there is always an audience for this type of dramas so there’s that.

The King’s Woman reveals ending themesong, Xuan Yuan Sword: Han Cloud has new trailer

Uh Oh, I think I’m swayed by the ending themesong music video to check out The King’s Woman with Zhang Bin Bin and Dilraba as they are all cute and sweet. Vin should be crowned the fastest kisser in Cdramaland. Blink and you’ll miss them quick pecks. HA!

I know it’s a trick and the angst will come but…. them smirks…. T_T

New Promos: Sun Li’s Nothing Gold Can Stay, Dilreba’s The King’s Woman, Zhang Yun Long’s Xuan Yuan Sword Cloud of Han Dynasty

It’s hard to focus on one drama per post when they churn out news endlessly throughout the day. Of the three dramas featured in here, I’m not sure which one I will watch. Nothing Gold Can Stay have weird coupling chemistry going on, The King’s Woman looks twisty and I don’t like mean lead guys even if he’s Zhang Bin Bin, but Dilreba looks stunning in all the stills, and Xuan Yuan Sword: Cloud of Han Dynasty…. I’m iffy about everyone’s okay acting. Lol.

Am I too hard to please? Or too jaded for dramaland?

Xuan Yuan Sword: Han Cloud OST by Yu Meng Long and Guan Xiao Tong

Xuan Yuan Sword: Clouds of Han (轩辕剑之汉之云) is the upcoming drama adaptation of popular Chinese game franchise Xuan Yuan Sword, featuring Leon Zhang Yun Long and Alan Yu Meng Long as brothers who were separated and brought up as warriors on opposite side. Bromance!

The melody of the songs are lovely so I did wish it was given to stronger vocals. It is a pretty drama!

Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace unveils more Consorts Stills

Palace drama Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) is adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, following the marriage between Qianlong Emperor (Wallace Huo) and Ulanara (Zhou Xun), the Step Empress during the Qing dynasty. I honestly don’t think this is my type of story; countless number of scheming ladies conspiring for and against each other. Lol. The new batch of stills only consists of half of the ladies thrown in the pitting box to fight for Qianlong’s affections. One hell of a lucky role for any male actor.

And it has whopping 90 episodes! I CANNOT. YOU. 1#***3%@#!#@!~~~!!!
