Official images and trailer for Blossom with Meng Zi Yi and Li Yun Rui

Blossom is adapted from the novel Jiu Chong Zi/Deep Purple (九重紫) written by Zhi Zhi, who also wrote The Sword and The Brocade. This is another second chance type of novel. After our heroine dies in her first life, she realizes she has overlooked many things. She wakes up in her toddler years. It’s strange to me how a lot of novels want their main characters to go back in time to when they are a baby. Quite useless, no? They don’t even have control of their bladder yet. 🤦 As for our male lead, he has brewing troubles within his own family, hostile relationship with his dad, which results in many deaths.

Youhug’s description: The first daughter of the Dou family, Dou Zhao, who was abandoned by her husband, was accidentally reborn. She gets to know Song Mo, who is carrying a family grudge. Together they save their families from destruction, vindicate the unjust cases of loyal officers and keep the country in peace.

Drama is still filming.

The Last Immortal (Shen Yin, 神隐) is adapted from the novel written by Xing Ling. It’s the sequel to Ancient Love Poetry with Xu Kai and Zhou Dong Yu. Male lead, Yuan Qi (Wang An Yu) is their son. Our heroine, A Yin (Zhao Lu Si), has reincarnated for the 27th time. Each time she dies, she would remember all her past lives and stew about her early-death fate in each reincarnation. Upon reaching the Nai He Bridge to get justice for her constant bad luck, she’s told there are two possible explanations: 1) She has offended a big figure in the God Realm, or 2) She’s the Big Figure herself.

I haven’t had time to check out the novel so… if you know spoilers, let me know. hehe.

First Character Posters for Love Like The Galaxy with Wu Lei and Zhao Lu Si

Love Like The Galaxy (星汉灿烂) is adapted from the novel written by Guan Xin Ze Luan (the same author for The Story of Ming Lan). There’s a time-traveling element in the novel which I’m sure will be changed. Our heroine in the modern world grew up in a divorced family; she lives with her grandma, making her quite wild and unruly, she does what she wants. On chance, she time-travels to the past and becomes the youngest daughter of a General’s family. Due to war, her parents are constantly in battle, bringing along her three older brothers for years, leaving her behind with her grandma. When they finally return, years of estrangement creeps in but her father and brothers dote on her. Except for her mother, who is extremely strict with her and our girl fans the fire by fighting right back. Despite mom being a tough lady, going to war, etc, she expects the opposite of her daughter – to be gentle, to be well-read (actually, she just can’t read ancient Chinese because she’s from the modern world), to be graceful. Since she’s of marriage age when they return, they become concerned that their daughter’s personality doesn’t fit in with the rich, high-ranking sons of officials, so they think it’s safer to settle for a low-ranking family. However, their troublesome daughter repeatedly meets with several high-ranking men, getting engaged and breaking the engagement several times.

The girls share almost the same hairstyle…. Hmmm.
