I don’t know about you guys but the wing flaps above really promote social distancing, atm. XD FYI.
Previously known as Held In the Lonely Castle, Serenade of Peaceful Joy (清平乐) is the new English title, and the historical drama stars Wang Kai and Jiang Shu Ying. It’s based on the novel written by Milan Lady and follows the life of Emperor Renzong of Song, played by Wang Kai, as he discovers an ultimate secret to his birth. He learns that his mother is the Empress Dowager’s maidservant. To repay his family out of filial piety, he marries his beloved daughter, played by Ren Min, to the Li’s descendant Li Wei. But the marriage is nothing picture-perfect and our outspoken princess falls in love with her eunuch. She eventually runs back to the palace with him and her action causes an uproar in the government, forcing her father, the Emperor into a catch 22 – does he want to fight for her happiness, or does he want to stabilize the government?
Are you ready to follow bespectacled Wang Kai as he rises through the ladder of smarts with Yang Shuo and Dong Zi Jian as his buddies? Like A Flowing River is based on the novel written by A Nai. Nick will play the lead character Song Yun Hui, who has great potentials and smarts but was born into a poor family and hence is discriminated against. During the period of Chinese economic reform in 1978, he took his chance and won a seat in college studying engineering technology. And thus begins the hard-working journey of a man against many difficulties to achieve dreams of his childhood and as such he also opens up new ambiguities in his life.
