Twelve Legends(十二谭) is a fantasy republican drama adapted from a novel written by Ni Luo (Wu Xin The Monster Killer), following a love story that spans 2 thousand years starring Guli Nazha and Jasper Liu. Our hero is originally a rock with characteristics of a demon and a god. He dons a cold face but has a soft heart, and is described as someone who’s resolute in all situations and is determined to survive. He endures the vicissitudes of life, countless trials of life and death, and is only waiting for one person. That person is of course our beautiful heroine, who is formed after cultivation from a pearl (how’s that for beauty?) She’s a playful person, who loves life and freedom. Unfortunately, she was imprisoned by him for years, and he’s also the reason behind her friend’s death. She resents him, but when the truth is revealed, she’s stunned. The freedom she desperately pursues is just a sinister trap. Thus begins a love story that is humorous and touching, passionate and sweet.
If I were Jasper, I wouldn’t be able to focus and say my line. Miss G is breathless!
Have you seen the original Kdrama Misaeng: Incomplete Life, which was based on the webtoon series by Yoon Tae Ho? I haven’t, but it was highly rated when it aired back in 2014! The original story synopsis: Since he was a child, the board game baduk has been everything to Jang Geu-rae. But when he fails at achieving his dream of becoming a professional baduk player, Geu-rae must leave his isolated existence and enter the real world armed with nothing but a high school equivalency exam on his resume. Through an acquaintance’s recommendation, he gets hired as an intern at One International, a large trading company.
There, Geu-rae meets his boss, manager Oh Sang-shik, who’s a workaholic and has a warm personality; fellow intern Ahn Young-yi, who attracts her colleagues’ ire because of her impressive educational credentials and by being extremely competent at any task; and Jang Baek-gi, a geeky co-worker whose anxious nature masks his inner ambition. Geu-rae learns to navigate and adapt to corporate culture, with baduk as his guide. [Wiki]
Mirror: Twin Cities (镜双城) is based on the novel written by Cang Yue (Listening Snow Tower). It’s the first novel in her Mirror series. Persisting war in Central Plains forces optimistic Miao girl named Na Sheng to leave her home and wanting to escape the chaos of the world by going to an otherworldly fairy land, known as Desolate Clouds. During this journey, she meets many interesting characters, including our male lead, Su Mo, who is a blind masterful Puppeteer and carries around 2-foot high puppet he refers to as his brother, A Nuo. But is Desolate Clouds really a peaceful utopia as told from generation to generation? I guess not because what awaits our heroine is turmoil and bloodshed among many races and peoples.
