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.
Good or bad news… With Hawick Lau‘s scandal still lingering, I feel bad for Yang Rong and the whole cast ensemble. Legend of the Flying Daggers is the fifth and final installment to Gu Long‘s Little Li Flying Dagger series. FYI, Zhu Yi Long’s Border Town Prodigal is the third installment. The novel follows Li Huai, Li Xun Huan’s grandson, as he wanders in jianghu to help the poor and uphold justice using his grandfather’s Little Li Dagger technique. How I wish Hawick could use those little daggers in real life and cut off the scandalous tail he has acquired for himself. Spare us and Yang Mi the pain. Lol.
You know when I write about dramas, I rarely sit down and count them? Until I do and the list is humongous! There are about 20+ chinese dramas set to start filming in the winter of 2016, as you might already notice from the onslaught of press conferences and booting ceremonies this past week. To keep me sane, I have compiled the first batch here. Hee!
