Two dramas premiered on the 14th, this and The Rise of Phoenixes. Will be making a post for each. 🙂
Making up for the past few days.
Oh, I’m liking the visual of this production already. Everyone looks stunning, especially the ladies! Great hairstyles too!
Well! After two months of filming, we finally have some posters to look at. Novoland: Eagle Flag (九州缥缈录) is the next drama set in the vast magical universe “Novoland”. The author, Jiang Nan, along with Jin He Zai (Tribes), is one of the original writers who created the universe and he has been working on the drama script with another person. I’m quite excited about this production since I’m fond of both of the leads, who are very young in dramaland: Liu Hao Ran is 20 this year and Song Zu Er (The Dark Lord) is only 19, same age as one of my bros. Lol. Eagle Flag follows the epic, sweeping story of three youths who found comfort in each other’s company during the vicissitudes of life and power struggles between empires, with Hao Ran playing a weak and sickly prince who is sent away….as a hostage in another land, where he meets a brave and untamed warrior (Chen Ruo Xuan) and a witty princess (Zu Er). Their story of struggle, growth, love, and friendship unleash into a heroic journey of sorts.
The hostage part sounds familiar to our dear Yan Xun? Because this is where Princess Agents novel writer picked up the threads for her main story. Lol.
Of course more remakes! I have watched both but only Lotus Lantern remains in my heart because the story of a boy trying to free his mother will always tug at the right heart strings for me.
