I hope you like Tarzan cause Ma Tian Yu is channeling one in this new modern drama! Lol. Yang Zi’s popularity is off the charts so her dramas are airing left and right. Qiyi has subbed most of the trailers and previews down below so you guys can check them out. Will this drama pull me out of my drama slump? I have always preferred my leading ladies to be more jaded than the boys. HA. 😉
Aww! Yay! I’m so happy for Zhang Ming En (The Mystic Nine, Tientsin Mystic) landing a leading role! It’s a webdrama produced by Qiyi and his leading lady is no one other than Xu Lu (Tribes and Empires)! Not a lot is known about the plot but we do know Xu Lu plays a well-known producer, an independent woman who is also a workaholic. She will begin a romance with a man who writes the Life planner book for people. However, to pay a debt of gratitude, he goes against heaven’s wishes and changes events in the book. Unsure if it’s for one person or for many people. We shall see!
The Lost Swordship (飘香剑雨) or literal translation Flowing Fragrance Sword Rain is the drama adaptation of Gu Long’s novel. His stories are less famous than Jin Yong and not everyone is familiar with these titles, even I have to say I didn’t watch the older movie adaptation in 1978! The new version has Ren Yan Kai (Yes! Mr. Fashion) and Wu You (Because of You) as the leads. From Amazon reviews, it’s a story about the mysterious martial arts clan: “The Sky Clan is a deadly cult. Their masked leader, known as The Bishop wants to rule the Martial Arts world. He has killed most of the top fighters of the other factions, only the long lost fragrant sword style has escaped his clan’s grasp. Swordsman Lu Nan-Jen (Tien Peng) is the heir to the fragrant sword style and is now the main target of the Sky Clan. Using all his cunning and skill, Lu Nan-Jen manages to fend off all The Bishop’s legions of fighters and swordsmen who want to capture him.”
Summer is a double-wedged sword when it comes to airing dramas. It’s good because ratings are generally higher due to students being off and tuning in to their favorite currently on air, but it’s also bad because every production wants to be the most talked and on top in the ratings game, leading to a division of audience views! Here are two more dramas that are scheduled to compete for your time this summer. Wu Xin The Monster Killer Season 2 and modern drama My Ruby My Blood with Nicky Wu and Ying Er.
