Feng Shao Feng, Peng Xiao Ran, and Zhu Zheng Ting get entangled in Shining Just For You

Shining Just For You (星河长明) is adapted from the novel written by Zhan An (novel name is Novoland: The Princess From Plateau (九州·朱颜记)  and it looks like another twisted love story. The story follows eighth princess (Cheng Xiao Meng) of the Ye Bei clan and her close friend (our female lead, Peng Xiao Ran) who is shunned because she is considered an outsider. In order to attack Ye Bei, Emperor Gao of Chao Kingdom (male lead) devises a plan to give him a good excuse; he proposes a marriage to eighth princess knowing that she would reject, thus giving him a reason to attack. To save her relatives and the kingdom, eighth princess jumps to her death over a cliff. The Ye Bei clan suffers greatly, leading to their destruction. Our female lead swears to take revenge for her best friend and Ye Bei clan, thus she creates a new identity and enters the palace to assassinate the king. Her failing attempts stir interests in the King and he slowly falls in love with her. Our heroine is moved but her loyalty to her friend didn’t allow betrayal. SPOILER: She continues to plot and eventually the Chao Kingdom falls and the King dies. Not sure how…but if this synopsis remains true in the drama, fans are doomed for tears!

Airing 11/30!

First Stills Released for Romance of A Twin Flower with Ding Yu Xi and Peng Xiao Ran

Romance of A Twin Flower (春闺梦里人) is adapted from the novel The Dreamer in the Spring Boudoir written by Bai Lu Cheng Shuang. In the novel, she’s a woman in the modern world whose body transmigrated into the body of the second female lead in the novel that she’s reading. Second female lead is Male Lead’s abandoned first wife and the most villainous of them all. In the drama adaptation though, our heroine is a twin and has amnesia after an accident. And somehow magically finds herself replacing her twin sister in the Hou Manor, using her wits to solve many crises for the family and winning the heart of the Hou Young Master.

I think they will tame down our Male Lead in the drama version….because he’s not so nice in the novel and I see some novel fans questioning how the FL can even like him. Sounds like he’s misunderstood? But the things I read he did doesn’t sound like a misunderstanding. Lol. O.O

You can read the translated novel here at Fuyu Neko.

Jun Jiu Ling with Peng Xiao Ran and Jin Han announces broadcast date

Jun Jiu Ling (君九龄) is an upcoming ancient drama based on the novel by Xi Xing. The story follows our female lead, daughter of the former Crown Prince, a princess who studies medicine to help cure her father, but unfortunately he dies anyway. She’s married off and later discovers that her uncle, the Current Emperor, was the mastermind behind her father’s death. When she tries to kill him, she’s killed off. Her soul is then transmigrated into the body of an orphaned girl, Jun Zhen Zhen, who also has problems on her end which is solved by the witty new soul. Turns out, Zhen Zhen’s arranged marriage to the Ning’s family was not honored, so she wanted to hang herself in front of their manor but ended up dying for real (O.O! At least this novel explains where the original soul went). However, that’s the novel version. In the drama version, to go around the body-soul problem, our princess is saved by a physician and takes on another identity instead.

Airing 9/7~
