The Sword and the Brocade (锦心似玉) is based on the novel written by Zhi Zhi. The story takes place during the Ming Dynasty and follows our heroine as she rises from a lowly concubine’s daughter and enters an arranged marriage with our hero – a general. She is a highly intelligent young maiden who is restrained in exhibiting her wisdom. Once in her new husband’s home, though she’s pressured by the complicated relationships and distrust, she uses her kindness and intelligence to win people’s respect. She helps her husband devise plans to oust the corrupt officials and defend their land from foreign invasions.
Who’s the luckiest girl in dramaland right now? Maggie Jiang! Being romanced by Jin Dong in Mr. Right, and now Wallace Chung and Aaron Yan in Memories of Love. Mr. Right had a solid run with great ratings, which left the hot seat for MOL to do well to maintain that high. It airs 2 episodes every day, except for the weekends, one episode each day.
If you’re watching, let other fans know of your thoughts!
Despite not having the youthful look like many other actresses in her age group (which to me is a big PLUS), Maggie Jiang is pretty lucky so far in her acting projects. Here she’s romancing Wallace Chung, with puppy Aaron Yan hanging around loyally, and a rock star dad in Christopher Lee!
The Road to Bid Farewell is filled with Flowers (一路繁花相送) is adapted from the novel of the same name written by Qing Shan Luo Ta, starring Wallace Chung, Maggie Jiang, Aaron Yan, Li Sheng, and Christopher Lee. I know the storyline is typical with youthful love that extends and lingers, reuniting the love birds ten years later, but I’m kinda speechless staring at the stills released so far. The bright colors and the oh-so-pretty cast members with respectable hair and nice clothes.
It’s sooooooooooo pretty… *_____* I could imagine all the click-and-save motion.
