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.
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.
