Two Conjectures About Marriage (婚姻的两种猜想) stars Yang Zi Shan and Peng Guan Ying and focuses on two flash marriages, as friction between the couples rise and fracture their rose-tinted glasses.
Youku describes the lengthy plot: “When career woman Shen Ming Bao meets IT guy Yang Zheng, the two quickly get married. But because of their busy lives, they were only able to meet twice a week. When her company suffers a loss in customers, she puts in extra effort at work, which eventually causes a miscarriage. When Yang Zheng knew of it, he made her quit her job, but this causes further misunderstandings between the couple. Shen’s best friend, Xue Ke Xin, a wealthy and beautiful woman gets involved in a lightning marriage with Chen Tong Gang, an actor eight years her junior. However, they eventually divorced as their principles did not match.
Shen Ming Bao gets pregnant again, but Yang Zheng’s career also faces a drastic change. At the same time, Xue Ke Xin’s good friend, Zhang Song Wen, returns to the country to seek business opportunities and finds Yang Zheng to become his business partner. Shen Ming Bao learns that Zhang Song Wen’s company is a funding black hole. She thinks up a plan to vanquish Yang Zheng’s responsibility and prevent the product from being listed on the market.
The four of them has also matured through hardships and crisis. Can they restore their marriage?”
Airing 2/21~ I’d say only 2 conjectures is pretty lucky. Lol.
Stealth Walker (玫瑰行者) is a cop drama with Zheng Ye Cheng and Lin Peng. Our female lead’s parents were killed by drug lords, which prompted her to become a cop as an adult to take down drug organizations. When she goes undercover in a drug group, she meets the mysterious adopted son (male lead) of the current drug lord. She pretends to fall in love with him to obtain some vital information about the organization and at the same time feels torn. He, in turn, is also in turmoil when he figures out her identity.
Fan Bing Bing‘s massive historical drama, Win The World (赢天下), is based on the story of a Qin Dynasty widow who was named the most successful and richest entrepreneur of the time, Widow Qing. After her husband’s death, she remained unmarried but the drama will draw out her complicated relationship with Qin Shi Huang (played by Gao Yun Xiang). Google tells me her ancestors became rich for digging “elixir” through mining. She was even once rewarded by Emperor Qin Shi Huang and considered as an older sister, and even given the title “virtuous woman.” There was mention that she even helped him built the Great Wall of China with her immense wealth. But if the trailer tells us anything, this is gonna get scandalous too. Somehow, I could never get into Fan Bing Bing’s dramas.
