Based on the novel written by Xi Zi Qing, Bright As the Moon (皎若云间月) follows our heroine who is rumored to be a domineering, arrogant, and rich illiterate daughter of Prince Yun’s Manor. However, what people don’t know is that the rumors were spread by her to avoid a marriage proposal from the Imperial Family. The truth is she’s been under disguise trying to find a cure for the man she loves. He is Prince Rong’s son and their love was oppressed by the Royal family ten years ago and Rong Jing ended up being poisoned, rendering him ill and weak, confined in his own home for years (hehe, this sounds like someone’s favorite trope!). To save him, she doesn’t mind giving up her memories of their love…
Qian Qiu Ling (千秋令) continues the never-ending battle between good and evil. After thousands of years of fighting, the next generation of the two worlds happen to become friends. But during an incident, our hero pushes our heroine off of a cliff to save his Righteous Master, giving the Demon Cult a chance to save and cultivate our heroine to become the next Leader of the Demon cult. 10 years later, they meet again. She uses his past guilt to stay beside him, while trying to kill him secretly. However, his warmth and kindness move her and she slowly falls for him. When she decides to give up the plan for revenge, another hand plants many misunderstandings between the two and forces them to fight. After going through many rounds of hardships and fighting, the two recognize their true hearts and that no matter where their stance was/is, certain things do not change: justice and the love in your heart.
Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.
Another new adaptation of The Condor Heroes with a weird/misspelled title?! The New Version of the Candor Heroes (神雕侠侣) features two green faces in Tong Meng Shi (Colourful Bone, The Taosim Grandmaster) and Mao Xiao Hui (The Twin Flower Legend). We have seen Mr. Tong in a few projects but for Mao Xiao Hui, she’s pretty green so let’s hope that factor will help her ~
And you thought you could handle any amount of prettiness?! Take this! 29 rookies from Huace in one drama but you might have seen them scattered throughout dramaland. They must have had a blast filming together. A lot will film, only a few will stand out. Pick your favorites!
Heyo~~ long time no write ^.^ Our wonderful captain has asked that I write a series review since quite a few people have been requesting it, and I’m happy to oblige.
Colourful Bone or 艷骨 is originally a webnovel by Mengyan Dianxia. Although it is said the drama is a novel adaptation, a large chunk of the story has been changed.
I was meant to have this up at the end of January, but with Chinese New Year and the influx of new dramas, this has been sitting in my draft box for the longest time. I can’t harp on about it enough and Kappy can attest to this @[email protected]
