Cdramas to start filming in Winter 2016 Batch 1

You know when I write about dramas, I rarely sit down and count them? Until I do and the list is humongous! There are about 20+ chinese dramas set to start filming in the winter of 2016, as you might already notice from the onslaught of press conferences and booting ceremonies this past week. To keep me sane, I have compiled the first batch here. Hee!

Two of Ji Chang Wook deck out Zhang Dan Feng in Mr. Right

The next Korean actor to break into the Chinese market is Ji Chang Wook of Healer. He will be playing twins in Mr. Right but the production company didn’t really capitalize on that factor to play along. One should’ve been raised in China, and the other one in Korea. Instead, one is a rich business man who is cold on the outside but has a weak soul. Lol. The younger brother is warm, intelligent, and humorous. One incident leads younger brother to sit in the high chair of his older brother, placing him in the receiving end of the heroine’s attention, played by Wang Xiao Chen (Good Time). The love triangle (square?) rounds out with Zhang Dan Feng (The Journey of Flower) as the mysterious and unpredictable man with a streak of vindictive stripe in his nature.

Officially older today! I feel the same as always. Tired! Funny how as you get older, birthdays become less of a big deal (duh, more wrinkles and white hair!!). I don’t even celebrate them anymore. My sweet, bubbly mom buys me a box of lobster and I’m good. Happy Birthday to all ya’ll November babies out there! Remember, live in the moment! 🙂

Rumored Cast for Possible Remake of Romance In The Rain

So I’ve been contemplating whether or not to post this piece of floating news and I’ve decided that speculations are fun (=P). The list of invited cast appears in a manual of possible future investments. So take it with a grain of salt because my (our) girl is kinda booked until June of next year and some of the actors have expressed not knowing about the possible remake. However, with the horrendous remake of Huan Zhu Ge Ge (Princess Pearls) in 2011, anything is possible! For those who are fairly new to Cdramas, Romance In The Rain is the drama adaptation of Qiong Yao’s novel Romance in The Rain in 2001 (there are older adaptations but not my cup of wine). It starred three breakout stars from her previous smashing hits, Princess Pearls in 1998-1999. The story follows the ups and downs of Lu Zhen Hua, a retired general, and his family in Shanghai as the complications of having nine wives and many kids unfold in a melodramatic way. While he has many kids, one is bound to stand out and she is our protagonist; the daughter who shares his volatile personality – Lu Yi Ping.
