Couple of updates here, new stills for Story of Ming Lan and Never Gone, while Meteor Garden 2018 wraps up filming with a small celebration and Secret of The Three Kingdoms secures a broadcast slot in 2 weeks!
I’m excited for one and anxious about the other one….
Based on the novel written by Xin Yi Wu, Han Dong Jun and Yang Zi Shan are the leads for Never Gone (So You’re Still Here) drama version. You might recall the movie version with Kris Wu and Liu Yi Fei last year, about a pair of deeply in love young adults who were torn apart by social status and financial differences, yet their hearts remain with each other for years and the heroine finally decides to pursue the man she chased away. Separation-at-youth-and-meet-again seems to be the prevailing trend in dramas…. It’s been done to death. Lol.
Never Gone (So You’re Still Here, 原来你还在这里) is based on the novel written by Xin Yi Wu. A pure and entangling love story that extends through the years and comes to a temporary end when social status and money throw a wedge in their budding love. Unlike other dramas where the main leading actors play the youths and the adults, the crew has decided to use fresh-faced rookie actors to play the younger versions, which is always a plus for me! But one thing…this is one gloomy-looking group of young adults…. Lol….
Tangren’s epic historical drama held a press conference today and dropped a whopping 10-minute trailer to appease your hunger! Based on the novel by Ma Bo Yong, Secret of the Three Kingdoms aims to unravel the re-imagined buried secrets and hidden hands behind the imperial changes of the Eastern Han Dynasty on Cao Cao’s side, led by Ma Tian Yu and Elvis Han Dong Jun.
I love it when my hunch is right! The production released a batch of stills of the ladies a few days ago and I was thinking that they would release the new stills of the male real soon. And Tada! Here it is! The men in armor ready for battle! I’m pretty excited for this one because of the cast and the rich, deep costumes, and of course the twist in history! Ma Tian Yu has had a fair share of prominent roles but he doesn’t have a representative work yet and I hope this is it. Make it big puppy!
After 3 months (it’s been 3 months?!), Ma Tian Yu has wrapped up filming for Tangren’s production, a period drama called Three Kingdoms Secret or better sounding as Secret of The Three Kingdoms (三国机密) adapted from the novel written by Ma Bo Yong, focusing of course on the epic period known as the Three Kingdoms but switching the perspective a little (away from Zhuge Liang), following the ups and downs and imperial changes of the Eastern Han Dynasty on Cao Cao’s side. Ray will be flexing his acting fibers by portraying twins – Liu Xie and Liu Ping. The twins were separated after the queen’s execution, one was raised to become a puppet emperor, while the other one was raised with Sima Yi (played by Elvis Han Dong Jun). OH. Interesting. A juicy role for my man-child!
