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.)

Opening Themesongs: Three Lives Three Worlds, Glory of Tang Dynasty

Opening themesongs are revealed for two dramas that will be contending in the ratings game with General and I nearing its last leg of episodes. Smart move to air earlier. Yang Mi‘s Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms and Jing Tian‘s Glory of the Tang Dynasty. On the one hand, I still do not feel much for the OTP of 3L3W but their secondary and tertiary couples are looking cute and their songs are pretty on the dot to steal my little heart. On the other hand, while Tang Dynasty is on the down low with promos, I’m more inclined to check it out, thanks largely to the intense trailer, Jing Tian’s charms, and the wagon of cast members from Legend of Chusen. I need to see them in something worthwhile of their talents. Yes, that’s a shade at you, Chusen!

Zhang Bi Chen and Aska Yang sing for Yang Mi’s Three Lives Three Worlds OST

Ah! While I don’t dig the main couple of this drama (yet), the first song from their soundtrack hits all the right notes for me. 3 more weeks to go before the official airing date of Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (三生三世十里桃花), a drama adaptation of Tang Qi Gong Zi‘s novel, depicting the lives of two immortals as they are teared apart in one lifetime and given another chance to meet through another form of themselves. Yang Mi and Mark Zhao portray the twisted OTP. More stills, posters and the song after the jump.

EDIT// Just added in the official MV for Liang Liang.

Snappy Yang Mi against cheeky Lu Han for The Witness

EXO’s infiltration alert! Lol. How many boys are in this group?!! Don’t answer that, I can google.

For those who don’t know, The Witness is the Chinese film remake of Korean thriller, Blind, released in 2011, starring Kim Ha Neul and Yoo Seung Ho. The original director, PD Ahn Sang Hoon will also helm the remake. Interesting arrangement. I wonder how his directing will differ with a whole new crew. The premise follows a blind girl (Yang Mi) and a young boy (Lu Han) as they witness a car accident and become entangled in the aftermath, leading to their hunt for the murderer. Very interested to see how Yang Mi performs as a blind person! Below are the compiled stills and four trailers.
