Ancient Love Poetry is adapted from the novel Shang Gu (上古) written by Xing Ling starring Zhou Dong Yu and Xu Kai. The story follows one of the four Immortals named Shang Gu who falls into a deep slumber after sacrificing herself in a trial 60,000 years ago. She wakes up with no memories of the past. But someone else hasn’t forgotten about their love, another immortal who waited for her, our male lead played by Xu Kai. Their epic love story undergoes several rounds of life and death (you don’t say).
Head-scratching Synopsis From Wetv: When commoners encounter difficulties, they will pray for Gods, but what if Gods meet obstacles? It tells the deep love and hardship between two of the four true Gods Bai Jue and Shang Gu. With Shang Gu’s growth as basic thread, this magnificent God thrives from humble newbie to the decisive immortal which still couldn’t break the shackle of fate. God lives long and has deep-rooted love. Man would destroy everything for the life of hers, while someone would wait silently for 60 thousand years and finally present her all lives of three realms with his own. Under the broad realm, will she be able to bear this everlasting love that transcends three lives?
As I noted in my First Impression post about this series, it’s been a while since I’d found a drama I was interested in watching. But given how much of a fan I am of both Bai Lu and Lai Yi, I had to watch Jiu Liu Overlord (九流霸主). The series packs in a lot, with the first half being a clash of upper class versus lower class with some political intrigue and the second half a murder mystery and palace intrigue. With a mix of drama and comedy, this series kind of has a little of everything.
It’s been a while since there was a C-drama airing that piqued my interest. But I’ve been impatiently waiting for this particular drama to start airing and it was the best birthday present ever when it started last week. I became a fan of Bai Lu after I saw her in King Is Not Easy. And I think by now everyone knows I’ve had a bit of a crush on Lai Yi since his turn as the hotty doctor on Legend of Fuyao. So I was definitely eager to see him finally take the lead again in a drama. So far Jiu Liu Overlord has not disappointed.
Jiu Liu Overlord (九流霸主) is an upcoming period drama starring Bai Lu and Lai Yi. The story takes place during the Tang dynasty and our heroine is street-smart trader, the leader of the Longzhu gang. Our hero on the other hand is a business tycoon/silk merchant in the city to showcase his fine garments. The two people of different backgrounds and social classes are forced to work together when a golden thread goes missing. As they work together, she learns the ways of trading from him, and he gets rids of his prejudices against the lower class. However, his secret identity is revealed – a prince! To protect the common people and the person he loves, he returns to the palace. Our heroine follows along, to give the higher up folks a piece of her mind.
