A very generous production, dropping 20 stills at their first release! Guardians of the Dafeng(大奉打更人) is adapted from the novel The Nightwatchers of Feng written by Mai Bao Xiao Lang Jun. Dylan plays a modern day policeman who transmigrated back in time and into the body of a constable of Dafeng city, who at the time is in prison, waiting to be exiled, thanks to his uncle’s huge loss of silver. Using his deduction and reasoning skills, he manages to solve the case and find the culprit. And thus begins his journey of investigating and solving mysterious crimes in the vast city. In the novel, our male lead has plenty of attention from the ladies but the drama adaptation seems to have changed that slightly by pinpointing Tian Xi Wei as his main love interest. She plays a proud and rebellious princess Lin An.
Adapted from the novel written by Ba Yue Chang An, Unrequited Love (暗恋橘生淮南) stars Hu Bing Qing and Hu Yi Tian. The story follows our heroine’s one-sided romance for her childhood friend for fifteen long years. They are childhood playmates and attend the same school for many years. Beginning in high school, their friendship takes a dim turn as she focuses more on her studies. When they meet again in college, she still carries a burning torch for him. Girllllllll! An excursion to Red Canyon Valley rekindles their friendship and sparks begin to fly ~
From what I know, there’s another drama adaptation of the same novel which aired in 2019 with Zhao Shun Ran and Zhu Yan Man Zi. You can stream it on netflix.
Hmmmm. This is one interesting drama, as I’m not sure what time period we are in anymore, what’s with robotic voices, magical eye colors, underwater fairies, and bubbles of life? After being back-stabbed by her own husband (Zhang Xiao Long), our heroine (Claudia Wang Li Kun) meets another man (Joe Cheng) whose power and love for her give her the needs to take revenge and rise to the empress seat. Legend of the Heavenly Tear is adapted from the novel, Incomparable Phoenix (凤凰无双) written by Bing Lan Sha.
Adapted from the novel, Incomparable Phoenix (凤凰无双) written by Bing Lan Sha, Legend of the Heavenly Tear stars Wang Li Kun and Joe Cheng as the main leads. The story follows our heroine (Wang Li Kun) as she’s back-stabbed by her revenge-driven husband (Zhang Xiao Long) and kicked out of the family, and then saved by our hero (Joe Cheng), ruler of Qi State (?). She gets a makeover and a new name for her “rebirth” and plots her way to the throne as Empress. That’s the bare bone of the plot. Now I will party and live life a littttle. 😉
Such a pretty cast. All of them. So young too. T___T
With February coming to a close, dates are being dropped left and right for March broadcast! Seriously though, how are ya’ll doing with the February dramas? I mentioned Fifteen Years of Waiting for Migratory Birds back in November of 2015 and here it is with a premiere date, some stills, and a cute trailer. I’m curious how they are gonna go melo on us…if I’m reading the right story. Lol. Everything seems fluffy and colorful from the promotional materials.
