Happy Friday! More dramas! Which one(s) are you watching?
Over 10 dramas…. Took me two days to compiled this humongous list. Have fun scrolling! Lol.
Some dramas out this week ~
China is venturing out more huh? Humans (你好安怡) is an adaptation of British TV show with 3 seasons (each with 8 episodes) back in 2015 – 2018. But even that was based on a Swedish science fiction drama called Real Humans in 2012. To quote Wiki, The series focuses on the social, cultural, and psychological impact of the invention of anthropomorphic robots called “synths.” In the Chinese Version, our hero played by Ma Tian Yu is out looking for his beloved robots while trying to dodge the pursuit of Professor Huo. His father created four to be his siblings, and three were stolen. One of the robot is played by Qi Wei, now with her memory wiped, she’s bought by a family to help do household chores (the year is 2035 and we are that advanced, lol). However, she begins to display very human-like qualities, causing chaos between the husband and wife.
Sorry, took a few days off to take a break with my best friend.
First trailer is out for the drama remake of wuxia movie New Dragon Gate Inn now simply known as Dragon Inn (新龙门客栈) starring Ma Ke, Qi Wei, and Shen Meng Chen as the main leads. The story is very similar; the rise to power of powerful eunuch Cao Shao Qin (Actor Bao Jian Feng), leader of Dong Chang (Eastern Depot), a Ming dynasty spy/secret police agency, as he aims to eliminate all those who oppose him, one of them being defense minister Yang, who is killed, and his only son (Actor Liu Yao Yuan) exiled. Ma Ke plays the righteous general out to protect the youngin and Shen Meng Chen work together with him to escort Yang Minister’s son to an inn, which is operated by a seductive boss, played by actress Qi Wei. Friends and foes engage in long battles at the same inn.
Is anyone like me? After Princess Wei Young, I can’t seem to shake off the evil sister’s image from Li Xin Ai? Lol. And when she stands next to the death-magnet of dramas like Zhu Yi Long, I keep wanting him to run away! xD Has anyone been able to watch any of the new December dramas?
Manhunt (追捕) is an upcoming thriller movie that is directed by John Woo as a way to commemorate late Japanese actor Ken Takakura, who starred in the original in 1976, which was also based on Japanese novel Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare by Juko Nishimura. The new remake follows the same story setup with Zhang Han Yu as a prosecutor who is framed for robbery and multiple murders and on the run. He’s chased by Japanese actor Masaharu Fukuyama, who plays a detective. Female cast includes Qi Wei and Korean actress Ha Ji Won. Plenty of reasons to catch this one!
