With the same producer behind Hong Kong hit series, Triumph In The Skies, Mainland has their own version of aviation themed drama starring Chen Qiao En, Ryan Zheng Kai, and Zhu Zi Xiao called New Horizon (壮志高飞). Miss Chen will play flight attendant who then pursues a pilot career and meets two handsome men. Ryan plays a pilot who turned engineer after he accidentally caused the death of Zhu’s mother during a flight and carries that burden to retire as a pilot. Zhu Zi Xiao plays the prince of the airline company, of course the only company since everyone works under it. Lol!
Are you ready for 2018 first quarter of dramas? First up is republican spy drama Love In Han Yuan (小楼又东风) which is being touted as heavily romance/idol-themed starring Yan Kuan, Song Yi, and Zhu Zi Xiao, with our heroine playing the part of a fallen wealthy girl who is caught between two men from two opposite groups. I’m so torn, I like the atmosphere of 1930s Shanghai and the wardrobe for both males and females but the spy aspect usually turns me away. However, look at the gorgeous cast…. I adore them all.
Hot dang! It’s December already…2017 is coming to an end. I can’t believe it. How time just flew over our head this year. We still have another month worth of dramas to watch! This is about half of them. Lol….
What is this? Trailers-dropping week?
More dramas enter filming!
First official stills are out! Upcoming costume drama As Flowers Fade and Fly Across the Sky (花谢花飞花满天) will always break my heart because it should be Viann Zhang and Zhu Yi Long‘s reunion drama! GAH. But it’s not! Now your heart is broken too. Lol. Hey, I can’t be the only one suffering! Friends! ❤
Good thing is… everybody looks great in here, nice hair, nice costumes. Visual Feast.
Reunion! Between the leads, Zhu Yi Long and Viann Zhang, from last year’s Border Town Prodigal. The latest costume series began filming on January 2nd with other actors such as Peter Ho, Li Xin Ai, Zhu Zi Xiao, and Yu Xiao Tong. From my drama knowledge, the title Hua Xie Hua Fei Hua Man Tian (花谢花飞花满天) or As Blooms/Flowers Fade and Fly Across the Sky is based on a long poem from the classic novel The Story of the Stone aka Dream of the Red Chamber. It has been remade into a song and you can listen and read the translation at the end. However, there’s also a novel with the same name which I’m positive it’s adapted from. According to the synopsis, bandit’s son (Peter) acquires an injury as a child and loses his memory. He then gets adopted by by another pair of kind parents. Years later, he takes it upon himself to search for their missing daughter (Viann Zhang) who was kidnapped by his very own biological father. After rescuing her, he regains his memory and reunites with his real father. They then work together to clear his father’s reputation against a big bad boss.
Wait up, wait up, so Peter is the lead? Oh Yi Long…
