Xiao Zhan and Li Qin reunite in inspirational youth drama Where Dreams Begin

Where Dreams Begin (梦中的那片海) reunites Xiao Zhan and Li Qin for the fifth time! I did not know they have collaborated that many times. Lol. The synopsis is pretty vague at the moment, focusing on the struggles of a group of young people as they chase their dreams in 1970s Beijing.

Smooth filming cast and crew!

Military drama Ace Troops with Huang Jing Yu and Xiao Zhan suddenly begins airing!

So sudden. Came home from work and heard/read my friend scream-text that her love (XZ) is returning to screen. Lol.

Ace Troops (王牌部队) is your men-and-women-in-uniform drama to end the year with. There’s a love triangle with Huang Jing Yu, Xiao Zhan, and Zhong Chu Xi, but it is resolved eventually, with each of them finding their love and responsibilities in the army, while striving to create a better team.

Airing 12/26~

The Longest Promise (Yu Gu Yao) with Xiao Zhan and Ren Min wraps up filming and releases New Stills

The Longest Promise (玉骨遥) is an upcoming fantasy drama based loosely on the novel Zhu Yan (prequel to the Li Yi Feng’s Mirror drama) written by Cang Yue (Listening Snow Tower). Ren Min plays a kind and headstrong princess of the Chi Clan who escapes an arranged marriage (her name is the name of the novel; looks like we can expect a lot of changes to make this Male Lead-centered drama), and Xiao Zhan plays a cold and aloof royal prince who is sent to the mountains to cultivate (due to the Grand Priest’s premonition of him falling in love with a girl). He is nine years older than her and she becomes his disciple… their destiny and romance tied to the future of Kong Sang Kingdom. At one point, she draws his blood. If you like the leads (or one of them) stabbing one another, this is your drama! 😛

Dou Luo Continent (Soul Land) with Xiao Zhan and Wu Xuan Yi begins airing today ~

It was rumored, but never confirmed, and here it is. Lol.

Let me copy and paste what I wrote last year: Dou Luo Continent is an adaptation of the Chinese web novel of the same name written by Tang Jia San Shao. Our hero is Tang San, considered a prodigy in the Tang Sect, a sect specializing in poisons and weapons. He commits suicide after entering the forbidden place for inner sect disciples and gaining the knowledge of the Sect. He feels guilty and kills himself, but is reborn in Soul Land (title of the novel), with his memories intact (dun, dun, dun). In the new land, he is raised by an alcoholic father and remains tenacious in mastering new skills. In Soul Land, each individual possesses an innate spirit, which one can cultivate and strengthen, becoming a Spirit Master, a well-regarded profession. Our hero has two.

Airing 2/5 ~
