A few dramas airing on the same day here… I wonder if the new frenzy to secure a slot is done so before the “clean-up crew” finds something they don’t like to shelve a drama indefinitely.
A few more dramas have announced their air date so I will be covering them separately…
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.
Just a couple of new pieces here and there this past week.
Fearless Whispers (隐秘而伟大) is an upcoming period drama starring Li Yi Feng, Gina Jin, and Niu Jun Feng. Our hero is a young University graduate in Shanghai who becomes a policeman to uphold justice and protect the people. However, he finds himself the subject of bullying from his colleagues and being caught in political warfare between the Communists and the Nationalists. But as he experiences changes and dangers underground, he begins to mature and start his own revolutionary journey.
Dear Ma Yang Street (亲爱的麻洋街) is gonna be the next big hit among modern cdramas this year? Gotta say, it’s been a lovely year for modern dramas. The trailers are nostalgic, charming, and full of colorful characters. Dear Ma Yang Street follows a group of youths and their families who grew up on the vibrant Mayang street, their ups and downs of youth and adulthood. Our heroine likes troublemaker (Xu Wei Zhou) but the new neighbor (Niu Jun Feng) next door also has a crush on her at first sight. The constant arguments break up the lovebirds and it’s the second lead who stays by her side as she studies in law school, assumes responsibility over her family, and eventually becomes a lawyer. And this is when the other bird returns into the picture. Uh Oh! I have a feeling Niu Jun Feng might be the one breaking hearts here….
From villain to female lead, let’s see where Chen Yao takes us!
