Here you go! Updates on webdramas that release on Valentine’s Day for people who just want to cuddle under a warm blanket like me! I have written about them before so if you want to read the previous posts, just click on the drama name in the tag line.
Adapted from the comic The Distance of Light Between You and Me (我与你的光年距离), the official English title is Long For You, an upcoming youth romance featuring Song Wei Long (Demon Girl 2, Feng Qiu Huang) and Zhou Yu Tong (The Journey). Our heroine is a special girl because she’s an immortal; living for thousand of years has desensitized her compassion and she’s frosty and indifferent in the inside despite the bright smiles that play on her lips. She lives with the goal of finding her first love a thousand years ago… and at the end of 2016, she meets a man carrying her love’s face but his love is different than that of the former, rekindling her passion and enthusiasm for life, and perhaps unraveling the knot many centuries ago. Because she desires an eternal love, their love story adapts and changes accordingly.
The trailers definitely suggest a dark revengey romance. (He stabs her?!)
Nice. The trailer proves to be the opposite of what I expected. Instead of humorous and wacky situations, we have political intrigues and mysterious murders to solve in the first gay Chinese ancient drama, Love Is More Than A Word (识汝不识丁[Shi Ru Bu Shi Ding]), adapted from the novel written by Su You Bing.
Well, you know the rules. The more you want people to stop doing something, the more they want to do it. Not sure how this will turn out in the end for the production, whether they can air the series or not, but here we go. As you know, I don’t read novels so I was surprised to learn that there is a category specifically made for novels with the focus on male OTP called Dan Mei (耽美), which means a liking towards pretty things (Lol, the crime we suffer under!) Love Is More Than A Word (识汝不识丁[Shi Ru Bu Shi Ding]) is a novel written by Su You Bing and a skim of the synopsis suggests that humor (besides the pretty boys) is its strongest draw. It’s the first drama adaptation of a dan mei novel in ancient setting (what they say.)
