Our Times (启航当风起时) follows a two young and enthusiastic men as they enter the internet age and become leaders of the information industry at the end of the 20th century.
Wu Lei’s hair is giving me young Andy-Lau-Aaron-Kwok vibes.
Back From the Brink (护心) is adapted from the novel Heart Protection written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang. The story follows our female lead, who was supposed to die long ago but was saved thanks to the “heart protection” scales (I don’t know how to translate that, Lol) and energy pearl from an ancient dragon demon. She’s then luckily accepted as a disciple at Chen Xing Mountain under her shifu – Daoist Priest, Ling Xiao, to cultivate. However, she stirs up some troubles and is then expelled from the sect (the beginning of the novel). Looks like there’s some feelings between disciple and shifu too. Now without a home, our female wanders jianghu and is kidnapped to be someone’s bride. That someone is the ancient dragon demon whose body was dismembered by his previous lover (oucchhh!). He immediately recognizes his important jewels in her body. He pleads for her help and she reluctantly gives in, and together, they travel around to look for his body parts, hoping to make it whole again before the big day comes – a war between the immortals and demons (and a revenge!). What will happen if the return of his whole body means taking away the things keeping her alive?
You can find the translated novel here at Nikki’s Sporadic Spores. Huge thanks for her dedication to completion! <333
More dramas coming your way! Which ones are you looking forward to?
Faith Makes Great (理想照耀中国) is an upcoming drama celebrating 100 years of the Communist Party of China, recording the unity and leadership of the Chinese people throughout the years. It consists of 40 mini stories, each one runs for 1 episode, totaling over 100 actors and actresses and 3000+ production crew members.
I’m Just That Type of Girl (我就是这般女子) is a costume comedy drama based on the novel written by Yue Xia Die Ying starring Guan Xiao Tong and Hou Ming Hao as leads. The story follows our outgoing and straightforward heroine who has been unlucky in three proposed marriages. In her latest rejection, she has seen it before in a dream. And when the dream becomes true, she begins to question her other dreams, one of which puts her ill at ease because it involves her father losing his noble title and the family falling to difficult times. What cracks me up is her family’s reaction to her dream….. they want to hide their gold in the mountains. 😂 Her family and their dynamics seem to be the highlight of this drama too, which is lovely! Our male lead is handsome and talented, described as someone who is always scheming, you’re either useful or useless in his eyes. Except for the female lead and her family. Gosh. That sounds super sweet. Looks like we have another greasy male lead, the things he says to her!! Lol. He’s out on a mission to find the culprit behind his family’s demise.
Begins airing 1/18 ~
At first it was five dramas, then 6, 7, 8, and now this post has 11 dramas for this week alone. Oh my gosh, China! Too many!
Upcoming republican suspense webdrama Psych-Hunter (心宅猎人) is adapted from the novel Haunted House Handbook (凶宅笔记) written by Er Shi San. The story follows our male lead, an enthusiastic tradesman in the business of selling haunted houses, his psychologist bro-mate who is searching for his missing dad, and a policewoman who is the sassy daughter of a warlord. A year ago, our male lead was invited to a remote island with six other individuals in a game of death and the only one to survive but he suffers from amnesia. Our psychologist receives a letter with a six-finger seal that shows a count down to our male lead’s time of death (!!) and a group photo. He’s determined to track down his father together with male lead’s special talents. They slowly become a great duo of real estate agents. They take over the haunted houses, get rid of its supernatural beings, then resell the houses. This leads to clues of the true mastermind behind the scene and a big conspiracy surrounding them.
I’m slightly confused about the storyline but it sounds really interesting! Will be subbed by Qiyi!
