Were the two just waiting to be reunited with Fei Wo Si Cun? Lol. They collaborated last in Too Late to Say I Love You in 2010. I can’t believe a decade has passed! Wang Hou Yu Sheng (往后余生) is a modern drama which follows the romance of two people torn apart by a secret from the past. We meet our heroine, who is a single mother raising a child with a heart disease. She spends all her money into medical bills, working multiple jobs and living frugally to pass by. Her days take a turn for the better when her child is selected to undergo surgical treatments for research by a cardiologist. When she meets the said doctor, he turns out to be our male lead, her lover from 7 years ago. Our couple’s romance begins when both were still in school; gentle, sweet, and innocent. The blooming love was terminated by our heroine when she discovered a horrifying secret in her mother’s diary, leaving our male lead in the blind, and thus he harbors resentment for her for the years to come. He thought he would be happy seeing her living in poverty and struggling to make ends meet. But he doesn’t, his heart breaks seeing her so exhausted, so drained.
He still loves her.
Together, they find their way back to each other through healing old wounds and answering questions.
Question for novel readers: (Someone spoil me please, the child is his? ML? )
Jin Xin Si Yu (锦心似玉) is based on the novel written by Zhi Zhi. The story takes place during the Ming Dynasty and follows our heroine as she rises from a lowly concubine’s daughter and enters a marriage with our hero – a general. She is a highly intelligent young maiden who is restrained in exhibiting her wisdom. Once in her new husband’s home, though she’s pressured by the complicated relationships and distrust, she uses her kindness and intelligence to win people’s respect. She helps her husband devise plans to oust the corrupt officials and defend their land from foreign invasions.
Filming has wrapped. Storyline reminds me of The Story of Ming Lan.

I can get behind this couple. The age difference helps in this case, he’s a general so being older is okay. The story sounds typical so it’s up to the characters to make it vibrant for us!
Can we go ahead and give the title of Melo Queen to Sun Yi? After Siege In Fog, she’s back in another melo drama to wrench out some more tears, with Wallace Chung and Ma Tian Yu at her side. All Out of Love, adapted from novel Liang Sheng Wo Men Ke Bu Ke Yi Bu You Shang will hit your small screen on 9/17!
How’s your New Year so far folks? I’m gonna party all weekend with family and friends. It’s a long weekend for me too since I don’t have work on Monday! YESHHH BABY!! I only managed to compile a few TV stations down below. I’ll try to update more when I’m sober? ^_^
Who’s the luckiest girl in dramaland right now? Maggie Jiang! Being romanced by Jin Dong in Mr. Right, and now Wallace Chung and Aaron Yan in Memories of Love. Mr. Right had a solid run with great ratings, which left the hot seat for MOL to do well to maintain that high. It airs 2 episodes every day, except for the weekends, one episode each day.
