At first it was five dramas, then 6, 7, 8, and now this post has 11 dramas for this week alone. Oh my gosh, China! Too many!
Did not expect to wake up to this news. Lol.
After three-ish years, The Wolf (狼殿下) has suddenly decided to air, VIP members get the full series! The story takes place at the end of the Tang Dynasty, when Zhu Wen usurps the throne and establishes the Later Liang Dynasty, and he’s known as Emperor Taizu. Our female lead is daughter of an official and as a child, she befriends a young boy who lives in the mountain. One day when he saves a wolf, he accidentally falls over the cliff and is rescued by Zhu Wen. The authoritative figure adopts him as a godson. 10 years later, he saves the female lead per chance and finds her courage and intelligence resonant, and she likes that while he’s in a position of power, he still has humility and kindness. She encourages him to fight for justice and he begins that journey by helping the people, stopping throne fights, etc. Even when they have conflicts, they will face those frankly. As they overcome obstacles and fight for justice, politics get darker and the path ahead becomes harder to trudge.
Airing 11/19 ~
While Li Qin got no love in Princess Agents, she’s chased by two men in upcoming period drama, The Wolf (狼殿下). They are Darren Wang Ta Lu and Xiao Zhan. The cast is also made up of some Taiwanese actors entering Mainland market too.
Originally called The Majesty of Wolf, the new costume series is now known as The Wolf (Lang Dian Xia 狼殿下), starring OTP in Li Qin and Darren Wang Da Lu. It is the second installment of the Wang series franchise after Prince of Lan Ling. The booting ceremony was held yesterday’s morning with Li Qin in attendance. She’s a busy drama queen (not the bad kind! XD) this year, series after series. Quite a few Taiwanese actors are partaking in here as well, which makes sense given that Ariel Lin was in the first installment.
Yay! Another hand-to-hand combat drama! (I still need to finish A Fist Within Four Walls. Lol.) A great mix of actors from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mainland China. Handsome HK actor, Kevin Cheng, becomes a Tai Chi master in the upcoming period series, Tai Chi Master: The Door of Tai Chi (太極宗師之太極門). He is paired up with young Chinese actress, Tina Tang Yi Xin (The Legend of Chusen), and she’s looking pretty cute in all the stills. There is a short trailer and a whopping 38-minute trailer released so far. But, do watch the BTS clip that I uploaded. All these fancy action scenes are hilarious in practice. Hee!
You know, If I judge based on the stills alone, I would think all the leads do in this drama is cuddle. Lol. I know it has been a torture for four long years waiting for this drama to be picked up and it looks like your immense patience will be paid off this summer. The premiere date has been circulating around for a few weeks to be in July but today, Anhui TV finally reveals the exact date: July 31st!! Yes! You will meet all of Godfrey Gao‘s 6′ 4″ fineness in one month, ya’ll. 😀
Hope I made your day! hee!
