Sorry, this post is a bit delayed, a little incidence happened and my presence was needed elsewhere after work. In any case, our girl turns the big 30 today! I’m sure she’s feeling the pressure from friends and families to find the special person and settle down but I do want her to know that she should go at her own pace. Some folks hurry into commitments and not take the time to explore and find happiness within themselves. You gotta love yourself first, before loving and allowing love to come into your life!
Dragon Inn (新龙门客栈) is the drama remake of an older wuxia movie, now 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.
Adapted from the novel of the same name, Love of Aurora (极光之恋) stars Ma Ke (Song of Phoenix) and Guan Xiao Tong (Novoland: The Castle In the Sky) in a bickering romance from school well into their adulthood. He’s an heir to a large company while she aspires to become an actress, returning from her overseas study to help her mom’s failing health. As expected from modern Cdrama trailers, first half is cute then comes the crazy. XD
