Quite a few dramas started filming today! Happy Monday folks!
Li Ying is making a comeback after having her first child! Legend of Fei (有翡) is based on the novel You Fei/Bandits (有匪) written by Priest. It sounds like your typical wuxia drama that takes place during the Northern and Southern dynasties (?), where legends have fallen to the chaotic world, allowing room for the new rising heroes of the pugilistic world, some of which are our leading lady and man, Zhou Fei (Zhao Li Ying) and Xie Yun (Wang Yi Bo). Our female lead grew up in a neutral zone where there is no war, known collectively as the 48 tribes, so she leads a pretty peaceful life. That changes when her father is invited to join the Southern region, and she is forced to enter jianghu shortly after. Our male lead is an optimist, who knows a lot about the world because he has basically done a lot of jobs. His expertise? Running away and talking his way in/out of things (Lol). During our female lead’s journey, he is there to help her as she slowly becomes a hero in her own right.
As I read through the reviews of this novel, a lot of them describes the writing of Priest as draggy and there’s a lack of romantic scenes between the leading couple.
I only know one half of the equation (pairing) so I can’t judge much but reading everyone’s positive reviews about The Untamed makes me feel slightly better about this pairing.
My list of dramas to watch is getting long. Would love to hear what everyone thought of the ending to this series vs the novel!
Based loosely on the Boy-love novel Mo Dao Zu Shi (魔道祖师) written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu, The Untamed in the drama adaptation features Xiao Zhan and Wang Yi Bo in a budding bromance instead. Go here to read more about the characters from the novel. Reading the synopsis of the story, reminds me a little bit of The Legends. Our main protagonist goes his own way to achieve immortality and creates his own demonic sect, which makes him hated by millions in the world for the chaos he created. The other sects/clans come together to kill him. The synopsis of the drama looks quite different from that of the novel. A lot of details are changed so tread carefully!
It starts airing today 6/27!
Sorry for another delayed post. Got hitched with the stomach flu. Headaches, vomiting, nauseous, diarrhea, the full package to ruin my weekend. >.< Don’t know why I like to tell you guys these small happenings in my life, they are not cute. Lol.
Must be booting week because a bunch of dramas started to film! Just a quick rundown, I’ll write more in details when they have their separate introduction post ~
Oh, lookie, Tang Yan’s baby chick leading a drama. She was the princess in Princess Wei Young. Wang Yi Bo and Chen Yu Qi will lead a fantasy modern drama called Private Shu Shan College (私立蜀山学园), joined by young actors Wang Yi Lun (Long For You), Pei Zi Tian (Sunshine In Me), Chai Wei, and flanked by professors from TVB – Joe Ma, Benny Chan, and Michael Miu. I kid you not, they look like Hogwarts professors. XD
