I was preparing for bed until I saw the onslaught of updates on news sites. Turns out it’s Qixi Festival aka Chinese Valentine’s Day! Drama productions release new stills to celebrate the annual meeting of two (tragic) lovers, the tale of Zhi Nu and Niu Lang’s forbidden love as the cowherd and weaver girl in Chinese mythology. I’m sure we have at least watched one adaptation of this story.
You might drown in the stills so I focus mostly on ancient dramas….for now. Lol.
AHA! Finally some official stills and they have been filming for three-ish months! God of Lost Fantasy (太古神王) is the official English name of novel adaptation of Tai Gu Shen Wang or Ancient Godly Monarch written by Jing Wu Hen featuring Wang Zi Wen and Peter Sheng Yi Lun as the leads.
GAH. Looks so good. What got me in this official trailer is the music, very reminiscent of old TVB dramas with its instrumental scores. That’s the way to my heart, show! Adapted from the novel General Above I Am Below written by Ju Hua San Li, Oh My General (将军在上) stars Sandra Ma and Peter Sheng Yi Lun in a role-reversal historical romance, where she’s the brave general and he’s the good-for-nothing male. They are forced to get married and how will love bloom with two very different people?
I need this show to be good! With PA not giving me my badassery moments, I need this!
It’s Tong Hua, tear-jerking goodbyes is a norm. Lol. One moment, there’s no promo, and now we have promos every day. Adapted from her novel, Once Promised (上古情歌), A Life Time Love will join the June ratings competition on June 12th, featuring Huang Xiao Ming, Victoria Song, Peter Sheng Yi Lun, Janice Wu Qian, and Luo Yun Xi.
It’s interesting how little promotion this drama has gotten, it has a pretty cast and a popular author (Tong Hua) behind it. A Life Time Love (上古情歌) is an ancient drama adapted from Tong Hua’s novel, Once Promised (曾许诺), starring Huang Xiao Ming and Victoria Song as leads. All the sleeper dramas are coming out in June. What the KRAP!
