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….
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…
YESH! Find your favorites walking the red carpet for their respected dramas at the 22nd Shanghai TV Festival! But noooo to another red carpet event. Lol. The Legend of Mi Yue is the biggest winner of the night for the Magnolia Awards. All shades of purple on the ladies though. Variety girls!
This crazy drama is gonna be the death of me. The convoluted twisty romance is buoyed merely by Zhao Li Ying‘s chemistry with Zhu Zi Xiao, and if anything, I’m watching to see how they drive each other into hell (quite literally) with his possessive and destructive love for her. I don’t like that kind of love but I’m excited to see Zhu Zi Xiao flex his acting skills in this role. Color me strangely intrigued. After being shelved for three years, Ji Xiang Tian Bao aka Lucky Tian Bao (吉祥天宝) will meet audience in the form of a webdrama, airing exclusively on tencent platform for VIP accounts, starting today, June 6th.
