I haven’t had time to check this drama out yet. T___T
Guardian or Zhen Hun (镇魂) is a webdrama adapted from the supernatural novel written by Priest following our two male leads. Zhao Yun Lan (Bai Yu) is a leader of the Special Investigation Department, in charge of cases done by non-human beings. His family is rich and the department is created by his father. Lol. Arrogant and a little shameless about his talents, he also fights well. He is responsible and lives like the quote, “an eye for an eye”, so don’t mess with him. His real identity was a god at the same time as Nüwa but for certain reasons, was reincarnated to become a human being, without his powers. The other male lead is Chen Wei (Zhu Yi Long), a University Professor, known for his pretty looks and pink cheeks when teased by the other male lead. His real identity is one of the two Demon Lords. He has a sword which can slice and obliterate ghosts. As they solve crimes together, more of their history will be unraveled.
Dr. Qin Medical Examiner Season 2 is also joining the crazy June broadcasting month with Eric Liu Dong Qin, Liu Chang, and Yu Sha Sha. You know it’s summer time, so students released from school will binge-watch and help with ratings. Lol.
Adapted from a sci-fi novel Heaven’s Will, webdrama Hero’s Dream (天意之秦天宝鉴) is 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.
While browsing through YouTube I came across “Cinderella Chef” (萌妻食神) a new series which recently started airing. It’s another “modern girl time travels to ancient China” webdrama and the show reminded me a lot of the series “Go Princess Go” and “Eternal Love”. When I saw a scene where the female lead thinks she’s ended up in a C-drama and asks the guys if they are at Hengdian Studios (which was where I happened to be visiting at the time), I decided to check out the first episode. Then I recognized Zhao Jian, whom I loved as Feng Ren in “Novoland: Castle in the Sky”, as well as the filming location they used, Hengdian’s Qing Ming Shang He Tu scenic area, and ended up watching the first weeks worth of shows. It’s a cute webdrama with potential for being a fun series.
Well, can you believe it’s been 3 years since The Lost Tomb 1 aired? Cast changes was announced a long time ago and the leading men are the new faces we have been seeing onscreen in last year’s numerous projects. Neo Hou Ming Hao (Cambrian Period) will play Wu Xie, and Cheng Yi (The Legend of Chusen) will play Zhang Qi Ling, and actress Li Man (War and Peace) will play A’Ning. The Lost Tomb 2 will focus on two chapters, Nu Hai Qian Sha and Qin Ling Shen Shu., which I don’t know what they are about yet. Lol. Anyone?
Oh! My Emperor (哦！我的皇帝陛下) is a webdrama tailored to promote the boys from boyband X Nine with Gu Jia Cheng and Zhao Lu Si in the leading roles. It’s a fantasy drama with our heroine coming from the 21st century and traveling to a mysterious country where people are ruled by their astrological sign and the hilarious encounters she has with each of them in the palace ~ Sounds like a lighthearted series!
