Romance of a Twin Flower (春闺梦里人) is adapted from the novel written by Bai Lu Cheng Shuang. In the original novel, our female is a modern working woman who finds herself as one of the villains in the book she’s reading: abandoned-main-wife-turned-evil of a domineering marquis. In the drama, they changed that part and made her a twin who loses her memory and replaces her twin sister in the manor with the same marquis. She has exceptional business skills and resolves many crisis for the family, earning the love of the arrogant man of the house eventually.
Lighter & Princess (点燃我温暖你) is adapted from the novel written by Twentine. It is a story about the passions of youth and the cruelty of time and people’s hearts. On the outside, our female lead, Zhu Yun is your typical poster child of a well-behaved, obedient student. She grew up under the strict supervision of her parents and strives to do well in school as to not disappoint them. But deep down, Zhu Yun is secretly rebellious and has quite the sarcastic tongue. She would have followed her parents’ set path for her had she not met the outwardly rebellious male lead, Li Xun, who attracts her attention on their first day of school with his bright golden hair and devil-may-care attitude. He’s loud about his lawless ways and even if Zhu Yun curses him under her breath, she can’t help but slowly falls for his hidden intelligence and talents. He has her wrapped around his fingers for sure. 😛 She believes in him and stays by his side through all their ups and downs, even during and after the separation arc (6 years).
Aww our boy is growing up so fast! Ever Night was one of the two dramas I finished 2 years ago. Lol.
You can read the unfinished translated novel here.
Romance of A Twin Flower (春闺梦里人) is adapted from the novel The Dreamer in the Spring Boudoir written by Bai Lu Cheng Shuang. In the novel, she’s a woman in the modern world whose body transmigrated into the body of the second female lead in the novel that she’s reading. Second female lead is Male Lead’s abandoned first wife and the most villainous of them all. In the drama adaptation though, our heroine is a twin and has amnesia after an accident. And somehow magically finds herself replacing her twin sister in the Hou Manor, using her wits to solve many crises for the family and winning the heart of the Hou Young Master.
I think they will tame down our Male Lead in the drama version….because he’s not so nice in the novel and I see some novel fans questioning how the FL can even like him. Sounds like he’s misunderstood? But the things I read he did doesn’t sound like a misunderstanding. Lol. O.O
Oi, seeing Zhang Yao again reminds me I still need to finish Love In Between!

In order to clear his name, Tan Jingtian (Zhang Yao), an Insect toxicology graduate becomes involved in the bizarre investigation and collaborates with forensic doctor Jin Ling (Chu Yue). As they dig deeper, they uncover the mystery behind his own identity.
Along with police captain Chen Han and the other detectives, they trace every clue as they solve one case at a time to uncover the murderer that has been in hiding for many years.
Airing 11/3. Ma Ke is considered a special appearance….hmmmm the biggest villain of them all?
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.
Gotta say, despite being a former child actress, Guan Xiao Tong‘s career in her adult roles hasn’t been flourishing like many hoped. But if she has any advantage, it’s her young age, which means she has time to build the kind of image she wants for her brand.
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!
