But as he experiences changes and dangers underground, he begins to mature and start his own revolutionary journey.
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.
Mirror: Twin Cities (镜双城) is based on the novel written by Cang Yue (Listening Snow Tower). It’s the first novel in her Mirror series. Persisting war in Central Plains forces optimistic Miao girl named Na Sheng to leave her home and wanting to escape the chaos of the world by going to an otherworldly fairy land, known as Desolate Clouds. During this journey, she meets many interesting characters, including our male lead, Su Mo, who is a blind masterful Puppeteer and carries around 2-foot high puppet he refers to as his brother, A Nuo. But is Desolate Clouds really a peaceful utopia as told from generation to generation? I guess not because what awaits our heroine is turmoil and bloodshed among many races and peoples.
A drama about China’s Army Rocket Force led by Li Yi Feng! Joining him, we have Chen Xing Xu, Xiao Yang, Yu Bo, Wu Gang, and Dong Chun Hui. The story follows him and his three friends hurdling through challenges and missions to become recognized soldiers on the force. Directing is Li Lu of In the Name of People and Spy Hunter and Zhang Han Bing of Chen Xiao’s King of The Land War which aired this past August.
With the trend soldiers like that of Yang Yang, Chen Xiao; I feel like most actors want to lead at least one solider drama in their career and most actresses want to be a badass warrior in their own world/harem. Lol.
