Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.
I always get giddy when I can combine dramas into one post with a connection! Here, it is the boys from last year’s hit drama Go Go Squid: Li Xian and Hu Yi Tian, their dramas decide to drop stills on the same day, with vastly different topics.
Sword Dynasty (剑王朝) is the upcoming novel-to-drama adaptation written by Wu Zui. The drama is being produced by film director Feng Xiao Gang and has two anime adaptations so far, from China (04/2016) and Japan (01/2018). Rising faces Li Xian (Go Go Squid) and Li Yi Tong (Bloody Romance) will lead. The story follows a young man with a mission and vengeance in mind to overthrow the Qin dynasty as he was betrayed before by the emperor and empress, the woman he has once loved. Li Yi Tong plays the eldest daughter from the Gongsun’s family.
Another drama of Li Yi Tong gets to jump off the shelve! She has quite a few more up there. And she looks beautiful in here!
This is gonna be trailers galore folks. I’m serious. Both Qiyi and HNTV had their quarterly event the past two days and had been showing off their next batch of dramas to screen! Plus, just a few more dramas for October ~~
Long gone are the days I can focus on one drama per post. xD
Go Go Squid or Stewed Squid With Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a sweet novel written by Mo Bao Fei Bao. On the other hand, the story doesn’t seem up to their acting caliber, described as a gentle and an easy read, some comments even go as far as saying it’s forgettable after a hearty laugh, but likable characters and setups. The heroine is described as a genius 19-year old student with high IQ and low EQ, who is also a famous anime cosplay person and sings well. She’s struck by love at first sight with the male lead, who is a game genius in the e-sports world and never pays attention to the girls.
