Are you tired of seeing Zhang Bin Bin running around in ancient land never ever getting Dilraba the girl? Well, this is his modern drama with the lovely Zheng He Hui Zi (Rush to the Dead Summer). The first trailer has been released and it doesn’t seem just like a regular modern drama anymore. At least not when our female lead can foresee the future by touching someone else’s hand (is this a gimmick?) The downside is her power comes with terrible headaches….until she meets him, an employee at her father’s hotel. When they come into contact on the plane, his heart races and she discovers he’s the antidote to her headaches. At work, she makes things hard for him, with a mission to drive him out (for what reason, mam?!) The rest of the trailer is typical stuff. Hmmmm ~
So did everyone get a chance to watch the premiere episodes of Lie Huo Ru Ge? Seems like the styling is the talk of town around here. Lol. Reminds me of the hair lift procedure William and Shi Shi got in Love Lost in Times. xD But back to our main stars, Dilraba reunites with Zhang Bin Bin one more time….. Are these two destined to be ill-fated forever in drama universe or what?! Then there’s our sole older male lead Vic Zhou, who is a decade older than all of the cast. Strange vibe or a slow burn to success? We shall see because I do like the whole cast ensemble.
This looks like a cute pairing already! Ariel Lin attended the booting ceremony for her ancient drama Legend of Huo Buo (小女花不弃) yesterday without the male lead, Zhang Bin Bin, in attendance. It’s based on a novel by Zhuang Zhuang and the story has a time-traveling element but we know what happens to that aspect once dramatised. Lol. A quick scan of the summary leaves me a little confused. Someone who has read the novel, please help me clarify! A pair of eloping lovers falls over a cliff and gets time-traveled to the past. She becomes a beggar (a role NOT unfamiliar to Ariel, Lol) while he takes over a position of authority, looks, and wealth. They meet each other 13 years later when she’s taken in by one of his scheming lackey to pretend to be his sister (?!) of a different mother. Because of her supposed mother’s death, their father grows crazy marrying many women in hopes of finding her face in them, causing HIS mother to die of heartache. So he thinks killing her would be a great revenge plan…. Of course, feelings don’t go his way…
In exactly one week on 3/1, another big drama will premiere with a gorgeous cast for you to look at. Drama adaptation of Ming Xiao Xi‘s novel The Flame’s Daughter (Lie Huo Ru Ge) has begun its promo rounds, what with the cast appearing on Happy Camp and now the opening themesong by Zhang Jie! What is your impression so far?
For the past two weeks, I was rewatching a Korean series which finished airing in 2006, the whopping 85 episodes of Dear Heaven. Lol. I know! I had lost my mind to rewatch something so long but I promised you the forward button was handy 40+ episodes of it. XD What I really enjoyed about the romance in this series, which is missing in a lot of series these days is the whole developing and evolving of feelings – from the attraction stage, to the slowly getting to you know stage. It was genuine, sweet, and magnetic to see their feelings for each other grow and latch on securely despite the opposition from their families. I love watching how two people fall in love with each other; love-at-first-sight is not my cup of tea!
