I’m not anywhere near the finale of Season 1 but it’s because I dread finishing Season 1 and won’t be seeing Chen Fei Yu anymore. I like his freshness, I like his sass, and was still holding on to the hope that they won’t change the lead actor. Silly me. In Season 2, Dylan Wang (Meteor Garden) will take over the male lead character. I haven’t seen Meteor Garden 2018 yet so no opinion from me about his acting.
How was the ending guys? Did they leave room for major plots in Season 2?
Are you ready to follow bespectacled Wang Kai as he rises through the ladder of smarts with Yang Shuo and Dong Zi Jian as his buddies? Like A Flowing River is based on the novel written by A Nai. Nick will play the lead character Song Yun Hui, who has great potentials and smarts but was born into a poor family and hence is discriminated against. During the period of Chinese economic reform in 1978, he took his chance and won a seat in college studying engineering technology. And thus begins the hard-working journey of a man against many difficulties to achieve dreams of his childhood and as such he also opens up new ambiguities in his life.
With 47 episodes, Like A Flowing River premieres on 12/10!
Ohhhhh Ohhhh….I am strangely looking forward to Ever Night (Jiang Ye), adapted from the fantasy novel written by Mao Ni. I have never seen the two leads in any other projects, both are rising new faces, especially Song Yi Ren who looks so adorable with her petite frame. What amazes me is the veteran actors enlisted for this drama, you have Leon Lai (what?! I didn’t recognize him at all, time is not kind to him, lol), Adam Cheng, Ni Da Hong, Hu Jun, just to name a few.
Will this be the drama to get me out of my drama drought? Just one caveat I notice….all the girls he meets….they look smitten with him…that is too many girls! But I’m also happy to report that the drama weibo has been posting short clips of the cast dubbing their own voices. Another yay!
The highly anticipated palace drama, Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传), adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, has wrapped up its 87 episode long journey. Kappy wrote a first impressions when the drama started airing in August and since I was following the series, I wanted to see your opinion on the finale last night.
Did you enjoy the show? What did you like or dislike about the series? Throw in your opinions on other elements such as acting, OST, cinematography. I want to know them all.
Palace drama Ru Yi’s Royal Love In The Palace (如懿传) is adapted from the novel written by Liu Lian Zi, following the marriage between Qianlong Emperor (Wallace Huo) and Ulanara (Zhou Xun), the Step Empress during the Qing dynasty.
You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.
