Indeed a pretty cast. If you like Li Yi Feng in republican spy drama Sparrow of last year, you might be interested in Fearless Whispers, his next drama project also in the republican period. He plays a young police graduate, who is idealistic and righteous, but findd himself cornered by colleagues at work. To make matters worst, he’s caught in the war between the communists and the nationalists, which slowly transforms him into an elite operative. Pretty generic plot for now. Other cast members include Gina Jin, Wang Long Zheng, and Niu Jun Feng.
A proper trailer is released and we see Huang Zi Tao exploding with the air of a pompous singer while having the most adorable assistant to put him in his place, played by the lovely Janice Wu Qian. Tao plays an arrogant, unruly idol singer who’s hard to manage and Janice plays his assistant, and it’s her mission to transform his unmanageable personality, correcting his shortcomings and making him a true star.

Uh Oh. Supposedly leaked photos for the upcoming adaptation of Jin Yong’s The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber are said to be circulating the net. If Hu Yi Tian gets the main role, his stardom is basically secured for the foreseeable future. But then I see Niu Jun Feng (Princess Agents) up for the same role and my heart breaks! I adore the lad and if we go by past adaptations, the main hero isn’t exactly the handsome type. Lol. But a handsome man explains why all the girls fall for the kind-hearted hero too (shallow, I know!)…. Then there’s miss Jian Ren Zi (My Sunshine) who is in the running for the role Zhou Zhi Ruo.
Nowadays when I open any news sites, I literally gulp at the amount of news coverage. China is humongous, tv and film productions roll in and out all day every day. How to cover them all…. *goes to work*
It’s finally ending! I have never been this excited to see a drama end, to put me out of my misery. As Princess Agents broke another dramaland record of surpassing 40 Billion online views during its run, I’m equal parts happy and annoyed. Lol. Happy for the hard work the actors and crew put in but annoyed that now the writer and director would think the secret to a ratings hit is a combination of half-assed story line and inept directing. See, cdramaland needs less of those and more of a step-up in all directions.
