The Chinese remake of Jdrama Shinya Shokudo, which was also based on a Japanese manga series by Yarō Abe has finally let us peek inside its characters and their moving stories. It’s rare to have a modern Cdrama trailer that is this quiet and yet still effective in stirring one’s emotions. The adaptation boasts a solid casting, inviting big names from both Mainland China and Taiwan. For the full list, please visit its previous post here.
Midnight Diner (深夜食堂) is the Chinese remake of Jdrama Shinya Shokudo, which was also based on a Japanese manga series by Yarō Abe. The story follows a mysterious chef and his late night diner open from midnight to dawn, featuring ordinary stories from his patrons every night as they chatter and eat the one requested dish. Various stars from both China and Taiwan will be making an appearance including Mark Zhao, He Jiong, Janine Chang, Hu Bing Qing, etc.
Due to the confusion in the last post, I will say it here that Tong Hua‘s novel, The Starry Night The Starry Sea (那片星空那片海), was published in 2015, way before Lee Min Ho’s Legend of the Blue Sea even started casting in 2016. With that off my chest, mermaid form Feng Shao Feng is scary-looking. LOL. If I see him anywhere in the water, I would stop breathing immediately and not pull him in a kiss like Haden Kuo did in the new trailer. XD It’s also nice to have a fierce-looking merman for once since they almost always look kind and lovely. Second trailer is intense.
Really looking forward to this! Weeeeee! Ending themesong by Zhou Shen is uploaded at the end.
The drama adaptation of Tong Hua’s novel, The Starry Night The Starry Sea (那片星空那片海), starring William Feng Shao Feng as the lonely merman and Haden Kuo as his human lover will follow the slot left behind by Pretty Li Hui Zhen and premieres on February 5th. I was gonna rant more until I rewatched the trailer and found it so beautifully filmed, with wide ocean shots and clashing of sea waves fluttering before my eyes…. With snow covering my streets, I do like being serenaded by the calls of a summer love.
Ah….I’m so easy. ❤__❤ But don’t you agree, it’s one heck of pretty modern drama!
The Starry Night The Starry Sea (那片星空那片海) is a modern fantasy based on same-name novel written by Tong Hua (Bu Bu Jing Xin). It stars William Feng Shao Feng as the merman who encounters a human girl (Haden Kuo) one beautiful summer and falls in love with her. First official trailer is out and I have to say, it’s beautifully shot. Lots of wide shots to get the ocean, mountains, and sandy beaches. We are heading into Winter where I’m at so I gobble everything up. SO PRETTY.
Finally got the chance to check out the novel and fell asleep promptly after 2 chapters. Lol. It was slow and the heroine’s inner thoughts were quit ordinary. It’s a good thing they got Haden Kuo to play the female lead because she is beautiful and likable to me (dramaland needs new faces!) William Feng Shao Feng takes on the role of our hero – a merman! So far, I haven’t seen his tail yet. hehe. He better be careful because the supporting male leads are no joke!
