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.

Lie Huo Ru Ge wraps up filming with behind-the-scenes hard work

I don’t know about you guys but for me to distinguish Dilraba in her projects, I base on her hair and dress colors. Lol. Another one of her period drama, Lie Huo Ru Ge or The Flame’s Daughter (烈火如歌) has wrapped up filming on July 26th after 119 days alongside Vic Zhou, Zhang Bin Bin, and Liu Rui Lin. The drama is adapted from Ming Xiao Xi’s novel, featuring a love rectangle so tragic it might just turn out right, right? XD

*whisper: someone say no, please!*

Yang Mi’s Legend of Fu Yao releases first set of Character Stills

I love how whenever they dress Yang Mi as a male, she looks the same in all her dramas with that cute little scholar hat. Lol. Legend of Fu Yao (扶摇) is adapted from the novel written by Tian Xia Gui Yuan and began filming on June 27th and plans to film for about 5 months.

Bickering couple Zhu Xu Dan and Lai Yi in Ugly Girl Hai Ru Hua

Had a request to write about this drama. A lot of webdramas out there, so feel free to bring it up when I do miss them.

Hmmm, not sure why they called her Ugly ~ The girl is adorable beyond words. Adapted from the novel, Hi Ru Hua (嗨!如花), Zhu Xu Dan and Lai Yi reunite to bring you a light-hearted romcom for the summer. It has finished airing so you are free to marathon it! Her name might stem from the loving of her parents but she is raised without them and burdened by the fact that her twin brother has congenital heart disease, forcing her to make ends meet by picking up odd jobs throughout her life, selling everything and anything. Now she’s thick-skinned, loves money, and is fearless. Our male lead is an arrogant rich boy, as expected, who is recently shipped back after studying abroad in France. They clash when he’s forced to attend college like a regular kid and becomes roommate with her brother.

Official Trailer for The Flame’s Daughter with Vic Zhou and Dilraba Dilmurat

Official trailer is out for Ming Xiao Xi‘s drama adaptation of The Flame’s Daughter (Lie Huo Ru Ge) and I’m not sure how I feel about this four-way romance turning out… The writer has never been on my list to watch… Everyone looks cool and all but there’s a lack of chemistry going on, which is very odd for this group of actors. Hopefully, it’s just a poorly edited trailer.

Endless Promos: Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms

I can’t keep track of all the short and long promo videos of this drama anymore. When I saw the word final trailer, I napped that one immediately. I really don’t know why Chinese productions feel the need to show all their cards to the viewers before hand (the countless rounds of trailers). I think some fans like it but I really prefer not to see ALL the critical scenes play out in random order. Anyway, Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (三生三世十里桃花) will premiere on Sunday, January 29th, running for 58 episodes. Drama gods have mercy on our short-attention memory (aiming at me.)
