The old Taiwanese drama My Lucky Star (放羊的星星) with Jimmy Lin and Yoo Ha Na is getting a Chinese remake. The original aired in 2007 so it has been 10 years. I must not have watched this drama because I remember nothing about it. I tend to like Jimmy more in ancient dramas so I tend to stray when he’s in modern land. Do you remember this series? Good?
If that thing with many sharp teeth were chasing me, I wouldn’t look that calm and elegant. Lol.
Based on a popular Chinese Xianxia web novel, Desolate Era (莽荒纪), written by I Eat Tomatoes, the story follows a young man plagued with illness all his life and eventually succumbed. Due to his kind nature, he is reincarnated, given a second chance at life (without having to drink the bowl of forgetful soup) and enters the immortal realm. He realizes he’s meant for bigger things, yunno, like avenging for his family and saving this clan/world from extinction. He trains hard to become a power player in this world.
You don’t know how much work is put into these costume productions until you watch their BTS videos. It’s crazy! Props to all the production crew and staff members! It makes you want to forgive and overlook all its misgivings. Lol. The Legend of Jade Sword (aka Desolate Era, 莽荒纪) follows the story of young man plagued with illness all his life and eventually succumbed. However, since he was a kind person, he’s given a second chance at life (without having to drink the bowl of forgetful soup) and enters the immortal realm. He realizes he’s meant for bigger things, yunno, like avenging for his family and saving this clan/world from extinction. That’s all I know ~
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!
Lol, I don’t know what to think of this. A drama about fragrances and perfumes? Now, where have we seen that IDEA before? 😛 Like a modern remake of The Legend of Fragrance, if you will. I’m pretty neutral towards the cast to be honest so this is me covering news that others might find interest. Thanks to Duke of Mount Deer, Han Dong is now not my ideal figure of a romantic leading man. hehe. Our leading lady is Kiton Jiang (Tiny Times 1.0) and despite being in many dramas, I do not recognize her face or name. Second male lead is given to Lee Wei (Lovestore at the Corner, Return of the Heiress). Not much is known about the synopsis except the heroine grew up in an orphanage and is bright and optimistic with an innate talent with distinguishing smells and fragrances.
Well, well, well. With the high number of dramas airing right now and shelved dramas waiting to see the light, it’s expected to hear announcements of new projects left and right from everyone in Cdramaland. Not a minute too soon. But how many dramas are you interested in, is another question.
