What a wonderful opportunity for Wu Jin Yan to be acting and learning alongside these power actresses!
Fighting Youth (正青春) is a modern drama following the journey of rookie salesperson, our female lead, played by Wu Jin Yan, as she gains favors from a sales division director of a cosmetics company, played by Yin Tao. Because of her constant achievements, the higher ups want to replace another boss (played by Liu Min Tao) with Yin Tao’s character. Unwilling to be replaced, Liu Min Tao’s character maneuvers her next chess piece. And thus begins the war of professional women in corporate.
Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.
I did not expect that in my lifetime there would be a global pandemic happening. It is – still is, very tough. Working in a major hospital, I was very fortunate to have a job through Covid but there were definitely some selfish moments where I just wanted to stay home and stay away from the hospital, where protocols and procedures keep changing every single day as we learned more things about the virus. Colleagues falling sick and hospital dispatching some of us to different areas, sometimes unrelated to our job; some smaller hospitals were sending my co-workers to work at the morgue. >.<”
I don’t know what to expect from these dramas but maybe all we need is a little thing called hope to keep us moving forward. Having this blog and some of you guys to chat with has always been the anchor of my sanity. So thank-you for that! Stay healthy, stay informed, stay connected, and stay calm! We are in this together.
I can’t help but laugh when this drama teasingly called itself the modern version of The Legends of the Condor Heroes! Lol! Why? Because their leads’ characters names are Guo Jing and Huang Rong. XD Our male lead is a transferred doctor from the border so he’s considered as unconventional and doesn’t follow protocol like a regular doctor who is used to technology within arms reach. He falls for the prettiest and brightest female doctor whose sister is his boss and also hellbent on keeping her single.
The trailer surprises me a bit, didn’t expect the OTP scenes to be quite romantic, dramatic, and plentiful! Adapted from the novel Records of the Southern Mist House (南烟斋笔录), the official English title is The Love of Hypnosis with Boran Jing and Liu Yi Fei leading a solid cast.
