Mystery of Antiques (古董局中局) is based on the novel written by Ma Bo Yong and has cast Xia Yu, Qiao Zhen Yu, and Cai Wen Jing in a suspenseful quest on obtaining antiques and solving mysteries around them. There is a current obsession with this kind of topic, right? Tombs, antiques, curses, etc…
And it’s official. Yang Rong‘s co-stars continue to be younger and younger. xD Her next project puts her alongside Leo Wu Lei in Kennedy Xu’s novel, Sand Sea (Sha Hai 沙海). He’s turning 18 this year… Novel series Sand Sea I think takes place 10/15 years after The Lost Tomb and stands independently with four volumes, three of them revolves around the main character Li Cu played by Wu Lei (who’s been confirmed since June of this year.)
Sorry for the site downtime guys, I’m gonna expect more sudden downtime until I can get this sorted out. On the one hand, I don’t feel like AVV has grown, but on the other hand, resource is being eaten like hotcakes. Building a community is hard, building an active community is even harder.
After “Princess Agents”, I was in serious need of some fluffy, light-hearted content. Thankfully I’d just happened to see a trailer for “Let’s Shake It, ET”《颤抖吧！阿部》and because it reminded me a lot of “Go, Princess, Go” and was different from any of the C-dramas I’d watched before, I wanted to check it out. While it may not be getting as much attention as “The King’s Woman” or “Xuan Yuan Sword: Han Cloud”, this is my favorite show right now. I know most people are waiting for it to be subtitled before watching so I wanted to give an overview of the series and what happened in the first few episodes as it’s a comedy well worth watching.
Webdrama Hero’s Dream (天意之秦天宝鉴) is adapted from a sci-fi novel Heaven’s Will written by Qian Li Fang. Not much about the novel is talked about but the vague synopsis describes the journey of a young talented lad (Ou Hao) after he’s offered an opportunity by a mysterious man to change his life. His character becomes the god of war – the Great General Han Xin, who served under Liu Bang (Zhang Dan Feng) and contributed to the founding of the Han dynasty. The promises of intriguing power plays, manipulations, and mysterious unknown forces all come together for (hopefully) an excellent re-imagining of history.
Can Not Hug You or Can Not Embrace You (无法拥抱的你) is a modern fantasy cdrama adapted from… Korean comics, unTouchable, illustrated by massstar, starring Xing Zhao Lin (The Eternal Love) and Zhang Yu Xi (My Little Princess) as the main OTP. Our heroine’s a beautiful modern day vampire who survives by absorbing energy through touching other human beings. HA. Vampires are so refined nowadays, no more neck biting? And he’s the gorgeous germaphobe who just moves in next door…. UH OH. How to keep her hands off of him?
Awwww. The height difference is so freakin cute! Modern youth cdrama A Love So Beautiful (致我们单纯的小美好) stars rookie actors, Hu Yi Tian and Shen Yue, and is based on the novel written by Zhao Gan Gan. The story reminds me a lot of Taiwanese drama It Started With A Kiss, the tall smart guy in school having a small cute girl chasing after him, except she isn’t as frustratingly dimmed as the latter heroine; he later becomes a doctor and she a Comics artist. It’s very similar to the thousands of youth dramas out there so I’m interested to see how they will make this fresh and heart-warming, especially since the writer behind the successful With You worked on the scripts with five other cohorts. =D
