Zhang Ming En and Xu Lu headline fantasy modern drama The Life Planner

Aww! Yay! I’m so happy for Zhang Ming En (The Mystic Nine, Tientsin Mystic) landing a leading role! It’s a webdrama produced by Qiyi and his leading lady is no one other than Xu Lu (Tribes and Empires)! Not a lot is known about the plot but we do know Xu Lu plays a well-known producer, an independent woman who is also a workaholic. She will begin a romance with a man who writes the Life planner book for people. However, to pay a debt of gratitude, he goes against heaven’s wishes and changes events in the book. Unsure if it’s for one person or for many people. We shall see!

Ancient comedy The Dark Lord with Xu Hai Qiao and Song Zu Er drops new trailer!

The Dark Lord (夜天子) is upcoming drama adaptation of a novel written by Yue Guan starring Joe Xu and Song Zu Er. Joe plays a prison guard, a title/job which is passed down in his family. He has an elder twin brother too but the man is too timid and kind to work as a prison guard, hence little brother who’s sharper and smarter took on the job. He’s asked by a high-ranked official (who’s on death roll) to deliver a will back to his hometown. The official only has one daughter (our heroine, I suppose?) with a mistress and hopes she’s well-off to get married. The job is of utmost importance because he goes as far as cursing our hero if he doesn’t fulfill his dying wishes. Sure enough, our hero meets his daughter who’s kicked out of the main house by the main wife. When she’s caught with our hero alone, main wife has an excuse to label her misconduct in public, hoping to secure the inheritance to herself. Our hero narrowly escapes the inheritance fight and is caught in another ploy, coerced into playing a magistrate for selfish means, which leads to his ascension in the ladder of politics.

ATV’s rebirth, to remake popular series My Date With a Vampire as a webdrama

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

My Date With A Vampire was the series I fell hard for vampires and its hunters. Lol! If you have watched ATV series, chances are you loved their Vampire franchise (both Date and Vampire Expert) as well because its one of their biggest runaway hits over TVB series. Its a classic romance with our heroine hailed from generations of ghostbusters and our hero who turned into a vampire after helping her ancestors. 60 years later, past mistakes meet present problems. The story is so intricately written and all the characters are connected in more than one way. Like Huan Zhu Ge Ge, part three doesn’t exist for me!
