Brotherhood of Blades: Shadow of Mountain and River wrapped up filming with Zhang Yun Long, Chen Ruo Xuan, and Sun Yi

Brotherhood of Blades: Shadow of Mountain and River (绣春刀山河之影) is touted as the drama adaptation of movie Brotherhood of Blades with Sun Yi, Zhang Yun Long, and Chen Ruo Xuan. The story our two male characters. Up first is Zhang Yun Long who comes from a lowly background but due to a confusion, becomes a member of the Imperial Secret Police known as the Embroidered Uniform Guards. On the outside, he appears to be selfish and well-spoken, but deep down he’s honest and treasures brotherhood. Chen Ruo Xuan is an original guard; aloof and lacks good speech (lol). The two meet and are pulled into many cases and hatred that runs deep in the court.

Filming wrapped a few days ago.

First stills for The Wind Blows From Longxi as it wraps up filming with Chen Kun, Bai Yu, Angelababy, and Sun Yi

The Wind Blows From Longxi (风起陇西) is an upcoming historical drama based on the novel written by Ma Bo Yong (Longest Day in Chang’an). Casting includes Chen Kun, Bai Yu, Angelababy, Sun Yi, Nie Yuan, Yin Zhu Sheng, Yu Hao Ming, Zhang Xiao Chen, and more, boasting some guest roles from Dong Zi Jian, Lei Jia Yin, and Guo Jing Fei. Reading the synopsis, I’m left quite confused by the double and triple agents status of the cast. It is set during the Three Kingdoms period when the Shu defeated the Wei using their powerful crossbows. Chen Kun plays Chen Gong, a spy/double agent hiding in the Wei State; when the Shu receives some false reports from Chen Gong, they send another spy to investigate him, and he’s Xun Xu (played by Bai Yu). Turns out, there’s another spy named Zhu Long in the Shu kingdom who has been secretly swapping out Chen Gong’s reports. Chen Gong and Xun Xu work together to expose his identity and secure peace in their homeland.

The drama wrapped up about a week ago.

Sun Yi, Jin Han, and Tan Jian Ci in a Twisted Fate of Love

Twisted Fate of Love (今夕何夕) is adapted (or some would say) loosely inspired by the novel written by Shi Jiu. Our female lead is a strong, badass female general who’s sent back in time to stop a war from happening. Through her time-travel, she meets a pair of best friends – minister male lead and Third Prince second lead. Lol. And she, of course, becomes the source of inspiration and heartache for both as their friendship is tested. The nation is crumbling so will these three rise above personal feelings to protect the people?

Our leads share the same set of small teeth. heheh.
