I’m really looking forward to this! Bromance, romance, political intrigues. The colors look great. Please be good, show! Its airs Tuesdays-Thursdays, 2 episodes each day. “VIP” members (ahum) get to see one week ahead, so ideally we “piggyback riders” have 12 episodes this week. Ha!
Unrelated to the prequel that left fans with many sleepless nights, would Season 2 have the same effect? Nirvana In Fire 2 stars Liu Hao Ran, Huang Xiao Ming, Tong Li Ya, and Zhang Hui Wen. It airs Mon-Wed, 2 episodes per day, totaling 50 episodes. First night’s ratings aren’t very well-received on two tv stations (0.263% & 0.271%). Let’s hope the number rise in the days ahead.
Another big December drama is definitely Nirvana In Fire 2. Set years after the prequel, Nirvana In Fire 2: The Wind Blows in Chang Lin (琅琊榜之风起长林) has a different story and pretty much unrelated to the first part. The story follows elder bro Huang Xiao Ming, general Xiao Ping Zhang of the Liang Dynasty, who is in charge of guarding the border but is severely wounded and eventually poisoned, which sets Little Bro Liu Hao Ran on a journey to uncover the 30-years old conspiracy/revenge pan, led by Guo Jing Fei.
Awww man, our Mr. Smile aka Shawn Dou Xiao will be doing another modern drama… but it sounds so dark and gloomy! Hear me cry. It’s adapted from manga series Asunaro Hakusho (あすなろ白書 “Asunaro White Paper”) by Fumi Saimon.
So I got the two main guys right and not the two supporting F2. Lol. Brownie points for me! They held a press conference today and reveals their final casting for the new adaptation of the highly popular manga Meteor Garden. Angie Chai plays the producer, just like how she brought the 2001 version cast to stardom. Let’s hope for the same!
A remake of the old classic franchise movie series starring Chow Yun Fat (!!), the new story still centers on the theme of brotherhood and drug-dealing with its three male figures in Nick Wang Kai, Ma Tian Yu and Darren Wang (absent from press conference).
