Renascence (凤唳九天) is adapted from the novel The Cry of the Phoenix Which Reached the Ninth Heaven written by Xiao Yun. I don’t know much about names but THIS name would make me want to check the series out. Lol. It is a revenge journey of our female lead; her soul is transferred to her sister in the same timeline. Whut?? (What happened to her sister’s soul then? Hanging out with ET?)
This is the description of Qiyi: Empress of Chu, Yao Mo Xin, falls prey to traitors in the imperial court. After a thunderstorm, her soul transfers itself into the body of her younger sister, Yao Mo Wan, who happens to be running from the enemies. Yao Mo Wan tumbles down a cliff and loses her memory. Through a series of events, Yao Mo Wan and Prince Su of Chu, Ye Jun Qing, fall in love. Yao Mo Wan finally settles the painful score of the past after much hardship and helps Ye Jun Qing reclaim his kingdom.
Solaso Bistro (问题餐厅) is the remake of Japanese drama, A Restaurant with Many Problems (Mondai no Aru Restaurant, 问题のあるレストラン). The original drama follows our heroine who is fed up with the sexist world of the kitchen and restaurant and opens up her own restaurant….on a rooftop. Working with her are five women and one gay guy, all bringing their own flavor to the new melting pot, causing numerous conflicts and fights. Jiao Jun Yan is the head female of the problematic restaurant. She’s still proudly sporting the clean boy cut, and dare I say, she’s wicked handsome. Girl crush material right here!
Instead of a trailer we have a song by singer Chen Li from the OST. Very soothing. If you miss little A Li, he’s in here too. 😀
