Xu Kai becomes a better man to win Li Yi Tong’s love in Court Lady

Court Lady (骊歌行) is an upcoming period drama based on the unfinished novel written by Feng Nong (General and I), who then proceeded to finish the story through this drama script. Interesting. That means there won’t be novel fans cursing at the differences? Lol. The story takes place during the Tang Dynasty and follows the romance between a good-for-nothing spoiled hero and our talented heroine who pushes him out of his lazy chair. Our hero is famous for having no dreams and no ambitions, satisfied with wasting away his father’s money until a chance encounter with the heroine. She likes a man of direction and talents and that shall be his motivation to grow and mature but soon he begins to realize the instability of the Tang Empire, motivating him further. He spurs into action, becoming a military commander to protect the borders and stop illegal smuggling. In the meantime, our heroine works her way up in the palace as a weaver, facing dangers that threaten her and her family.

Airing 4/15~

Yang Rong and Bai Yu fight and flirt in Memory Lost Second Trailer

So cute. SO CUTE. I dig this. Yumama has himself another hit series right here. His strong suit is never about the writing but them magical hands in creating memorable leads in reel and real-ity. Not sure how closely he’s following Ding Mo’s original story Memory Lost (美人为馅), the third detective series, after When A Snail Loves and Love Me If You Dare, so you guys can tell me or give up telling me about his notorious deviations. Lol. While the first trailer promises actions and explosions, the second one teases the flirty moments between Yang Rong and Johnny Bai Yu. HIS SMIRK!
