A year after the series ended, we now have, hopefully, a proper ending. It’s based on the novel written by Xue Man Liang Yuan and if the drama follows the novel, it is most likely a sad ending. I didn’t watch Royal Nirvana last year so have no idea where they ended the series. But the additional 12 episodes are not newly filmed. The original was edited/cut so now we are getting the unaired footage compiled.
The stills for this movie are so lovely, beautiful, and romantic, they hit all the right notes for me. Romance film Love You Forever (我在时间尽头等你) stars Li Yi Tong and Li Hong Qi and it has finally snatched a theater release date after being delayed due to the pandemic. The story follows our aspiring ballerina who helps out an older theater attendant, and in doing so discovers his diary. The content stuns her; his diary details their romance through his memories since childhood; the timeless romance that is concealed in another dimension. As it turns out, our male lead was given the chance to travel back in time and he did it to correct a mistake in the past. However, fate doesn’t let you tamper with it without consequences.
Color me intrigued! That is a good trailer! I haven’t been super interested in any of Yang Yang’s recent projects but this one might be the one to pull me back in! China Special Forces (特战荣耀) is modern drama following the coming of age story of our male lead as he joins the military to gain his father’s approval. His talents astonish many people and also gain him side-eye dislike from one of the leaders and he’s then assigned to the cooking crew. Who would have thought that the cooking team is packed with talented people hiding their skills. He works hard and is then assigned to a special armed team (forgive me, I don’t know the technical terms). But during a mission, our young, ambitious male lead chooses heroism over teamwork and thus begins a journey of humility and genuine camaraderie within the team.
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.
Previously known as Brave to Love, the modern drama has since changed its name to Don’t Think Twice Love’s All Right (爱我就别想太多) starring Li Yi Tong and Chen Jian Bin. As you can see the theme of this drama is exactly their big age gap. He’s a golden bachelor trying to find his partner for life and he meets a bubbly, youthful designer. He wants her to love him not for his money so he conceals his “rich” background, which makes it quite an upsetting lie for her to discover after their marriage. She wants a divorce but the two must maintain appearance for a few months for their company’s sake. Will those few months be able to save their blooming garden?
I’m a shallow person alright, but I do believe that love comes in many forms, shapes, sizes, status, and ages (uh, the legal ones). Both are strong actors so let’s hope they can sell their romance and sparkle. ❤
