As we have said before. Solid casting. An official trailer was dropped three days ago and here I’m talking about it now. See how fast I am these days with news? Tang Wei‘s drama comeback is Empress of the Ming with actor Zhu Ya Wen, and the story follows their love story of 50 years, first as best friends (grew up together) before they don the royal robes – she as Empress Xiaogongzhang and he as Emperor Xuande, the fifth emperor of the Ming dynasty. You will see plenty of familiar faces in the trailer such as Qiao Zhen Yu, Lay (as Emperor Yingzong of Ming), Yu Hao Ming (Zhu Gaoxu, later the Prince of Han), just to name a few.
Enid Bee: I know IMOmusings is done with this series and I’m ready to start recapping a new show, so I’m taking over screenshot and formatting duties for this final post to give her a much needed break and to get these done for all our faithful readers. (Hi, Hohliu!)
So for one last time, we get another Yimo, a few more new characters, a lot of self-sacrificing, a runaway bride, some sad break-ups and someone finally goes to the dark side. Let’s begin the final two weeks of Season 1!
Can we go ahead and give the title of Melo Queen to Sun Yi? After Siege In Fog, she’s back in another melo drama to wrench out some more tears, with Wallace Chung and Ma Tian Yu at her side. All Out of Love, adapted from novel Liang Sheng Wo Men Ke Bu Ke Yi Bu You Shang will hit your small screen on 9/17!
IMOmusings: I’m always falling behind Enid Bee, so sadly this is last week’s recaps~ Losing interest in the drama combined with impossible internet is not a good combination xD.
Enid has been very thorough with the recaps this week so expect a little delay in loading. I’ve tried to cut down on a lot of images but I think we can all agree that sometimes, with this drama, you need that bit of colour to the stupidity of the story.
More whining, crying, perverse leering and blood sucking this week on Martial Universe!
Adapted from the same-name novel written by Xiao Qi Xiao, Age of Legends (橙红年代) is an upcoming modern drama starring William Chan and Sandra Ma as leads. William is 30 years old, representing young men with a burning ardor, persevering to the top despite his humble background, displaying stories of love from all around. With a strong sense of justice and courage, he gathers a group of like-minded men. Due to an incident, he disappears from the world for 8 years, returning to find his dad beat up and admitted to the hospital. After delivering his brand of punishment to the deserved people, the nurses fall for his charms and upon meeting our female lead, the cop in charge of the case, they butt heads immediately. Doesn’t help that she discovers his involvement with a case from 8 years ago and is determined to uncover more dirt about him. Sandra plays a 23-year old feisty police woman, the beauty of the bureau with a temper to boot.
