Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.

Which ones are you looking forward to?

COVID-19 Anthology Cdrama – Together, with Ten Different Stories and Cast Members

I did not expect that in my lifetime there would be a global pandemic happening. It is – still is, very tough. Working in a major hospital, I was very fortunate to have a job through Covid but there were definitely some selfish moments where I just wanted to stay home and stay away from the hospital, where protocols and procedures keep changing every single day as we learned more things about the virus. Colleagues falling sick and hospital dispatching some of us to different areas, sometimes unrelated to our job; some smaller hospitals were sending my co-workers to work at the morgue. >.<”

I don’t know what to expect from these dramas but maybe all we need is a little thing called hope to keep us moving forward. Having this blog and some of you guys to chat with has always been the anchor of my sanity. So thank-you for that! Stay healthy, stay informed, stay connected, and stay calm! We are in this together.

Love is Sweet with Bai Lu, Luo Yun Xi, and Xiao Yan is set to air soon

Bai Lu to romance Luo Yun Xi in the novel-to-drama adaptation called Love Is Sweet (半是蜜糖半是伤). She plays a young, idealistic woman who holds a master’s degree in both economics and psychology and is a little sensitive to tears. After her father’s death, she enters an investment banking company to follow his wishes and that is where she’s reunited with her childhood-friend-now-Deputy-general-manager played by Luo Yuo Xi. While she’s happy to see him, she finds him a changed person, now opposing her at every corner, and known for his poisonous tongue. I’m reading some comments from novel readers and it looks like HE is in love with HER, but she likes someone else, so he conspires to break them apart. Will she forgive him? The English title of the drama is misleading too, as the literal translation is Half is Honey, Half Hurt/Pain. They forgot the other half. Lol.

The two female leads from The Legends reunited once more!

The novel is available to read at NovelUpdates.

UPDATES: Not airing today… Lol….
