It’s been 3 years! War drama, Liang Jian 3 (亮剑3) or Drawing Sword 3, is made to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the People’s Liberation Army, following its prequels Drawing Sword 1 and 2, released in 2005 and 2006 respectively. The new story will feature the patriotism and loyalty of the young generation beginning in 1938 about the Eighth Route Army, while still maintaining the values and meaning the originals evoked. At its center focus, Liang Jian 3 has three heroes for you to root for: Zhang Yun Long, Vengo Gao, and Shawn Wei.
Living Toward the Sun (向阳而生) is the drama remake of 2015’s film Go Away Mr. Tumor, which was based on the real life of comic book artist Xiong Dun, who after her cancer diagnosis with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, documented her experience and treatments in a web comic which later became a success in China. She passed away in 2012.
Miss S (旗袍美探) is the Chinese remake of Australian TV show Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, which was also based on Kerry Greenwood’s historical mystery novels. It follows the life of a female detective in 1920s Melbourne as she solves crimes and murders, one of which involves the kidnapping and eventual death of her younger sister. I gotta say, I didn’t expect much from the pair but now in their Shanghai glitz and glam outfits, they both look great! Who doesn’t like a female detective with beautiful clothes? 😀
I’m back, after disappearing only a week into these posts~. One of the things you’ll learn about me, is my lack of consistency, but to make up for the absence I’ve hand picked more than I should have for this week. I hope everyone has a lovely weekend.
Join us on Discord for more photoshoots, since Kappy was very logical in her approach that sharing more would not be a treat for everyone’s bandwidth.
The Pillow Book also now known as Eternal Love of Dream is adapted from the second book in the Three Lives, Three Worlds series. It follows the love story between a nine-tailed fox queen of Qing Qiu – Bai Feng Jiu, and the first ruler of Heaven – Dong Hua Di Jun, that spans over three different lives. I remember the OTP was really loved during the airing of Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms but I can’t help but wonder whether they have missed the sweet spot to air this drama as it has been close to three years. You want to ride the high tides and feed the hungry fans, don’t ya? Anyway, I didn’t watch the prequel so chances of me watching this is slim. The visual of this couple is no joke though. Dilraba is ethereal and Vengo could be a chiseled AI in his next role. XD
