First trailer is out for the drama remake of wuxia movie New Dragon Gate Inn now simply known as Dragon Inn (新龙门客栈) starring Ma Ke, Qi Wei, and Shen Meng Chen as the main leads. The story is very similar; the rise to power of powerful eunuch Cao Shao Qin (Actor Bao Jian Feng), leader of Dong Chang (Eastern Depot), a Ming dynasty spy/secret police agency, as he aims to eliminate all those who oppose him, one of them being defense minister Yang, who is killed, and his only son (Actor Liu Yao Yuan) exiled. Ma Ke plays the righteous general out to protect the youngin and Shen Meng Chen work together with him to escort Yang Minister’s son to an inn, which is operated by a seductive boss, played by actress Qi Wei. Friends and foes engage in long battles at the same inn.
Hot dang! It’s December already…2017 is coming to an end. I can’t believe it. How time just flew over our head this year. We still have another month worth of dramas to watch! This is about half of them. Lol….
Just started my official night shift and it’s so weird on the body. I’m usually a night owl but after working the night hours, I just slumped right into bed without brushing my teeth!! (I did floss.) Lol.
Here you go! Updates on webdramas that release on Valentine’s Day for people who just want to cuddle under a warm blanket like me! I have written about them before so if you want to read the previous posts, just click on the drama name in the tag line.
Such a sudden announcement. They even released a small promo video just hours before that. But if anything, your health comes first. Actor Lu Zhuo who plays Zhu Ying Tai has been reported sick for many days and still persisted in filming. But alas, director Chen Peng and team have decided to let him rest while they replaced him with female actress Nikki Chen Meng Xi. Fans are bewildered but I think it’s a sound decision after all. I won’t prod for more details and let’s all wish him a speedy recovery. Work can wait, your health can’t.
Another production begins rolling! Remake of Butterfly Lovers starring two male leads, Yang Jing Cheng and Lu Zhuo, from the director that brought us Love is More Than a A Word and Till Death Tear Us Apart. Though my heart is at the edge of straying to the handsome second male lead played by Lin Feng Song. Anyhoo, nice details and gentle colors, I like the costume designers of Chen Peng’s productions.
