Couple of Mirrors (双镜) follows the lives of our colorful dual female leads in Zhang Nan and Sun Yi Han. Not much to say about the synopsis cause I think one line is enough to grab your attention: The unlikely friendship emerges between a famous author with a cheating husband and a cold-blooded assassin posing as a photographer and how they stand by each other side facing the incoming storms.
It’s about time us ladies have interesting characters/backgrounds!
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.
It looks good, very good. The name Zhao Ge (朝歌) comes from the last of a series of cities that served as capital of the Shang dynasty, and later capital of State of Wei [Wiki.] It is a fantasy historical drama retelling the wars between the Shang and Zhou dynasties written and produced by Yu Zheng. Yea, that’s the catch to all the pretty!
With history experts and a new stylist (He Qian from Huang Xiao Ming’s Xuan Zang) on board, maybe Zhao Ge will be Yu Zheng’s turnaround drama?

I just love watching behind-the-scene videos these days. Really gives you another perspective into the work behind all these grand productions.
Another reunion. Well, this one is not new since it started filming in September of 2016. But the of stills were released just this morning and it’s all familiar faces from Yu Zheng‘s company because he’s the….writer. Expect to see Zhang Zhe Han, Li Yi Tong, Wu Jin Yan, Merxat, Bai Yu and more from both Demon Girl and Memory Lost cast members. Zhao Ge (朝歌) is a fantasy historical drama retelling the wars between Shang and Zhou dynasties with a touch of volatile inaccuracies and romances added in by Yumama. Synopsis credit: Me. PUHAHAHAHA.
These two productions crack me up. Same day release of stills, press conference, and a final trailer? If you were Ding Mo, how would you feel? Proud that your works are being compared? Upset that they are being compared? Anyhoo, good thing for us fans is you don’t have to choose one over another, unless you want to. Lol. I’m interested in both! 😀
