Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy Discussion Post Week 1: Episodes 1 – 12

It’s here! The most anticipated drama for the last two years…. LOL! 2 episodes per day, VIP accounts get to see more, of course… I honestly don’t have the time to recap this drama and with my comprehension skill, I think I’m gonna butcher all the names and places. Open arms for volunteers, let me know! 🙂

Spazz away! The cast alone is…star-studded…

Shawn Dou confirms Asunaro Hakusho adaptation ‘Ten Years Late’ with Gulnazar, attends Tribes and Empire press conference

Awww man, our Mr. Smile aka Shawn Dou Xiao will be doing another modern drama… but it sounds so dark and gloomy! Hear me cry. It’s adapted from manga series Asunaro Hakusho (あすなろ白書 “Asunaro White Paper”) by Fumi Saimon.

Behind-The-Scenes videos: Tribes and Empires, Ever Night, Legend of Fu Yao, Sweet Dreams

You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.

Qin Jun Jie and Xu Lu lead heavy cast members in Spy Hunter

I really don’t know the appeal of spy dramas. Lol. Even with Li Ying’s Rookie Agent Rouge, I did not complete it. And yet here we are…with another spy drama in our hands, this time led by Qin Jun Jie and Xu Lu called Spy Hunter (天衣无缝). They are a fresh pairing and I like Xu Lu in bigger productions. The director and writer have been good before so let’s hope it’s not another deflated attempt.

Drama-Binging: What Are You Watching? (11)

What can I say…. I will binge-watch Princess Agents at the end. Lol. The other show I’m watching is Seven Day Queen, and while both shows are tragic, one is tragically messy (PA) the other is tragically compelling (7DQ), but of course, I’m in the minority with PA’s 35 Billion views+. LOL. I still can’t believe they did that to poor Seo No!! It was fitting but so unexpected for me. I thought he would last longer or at least be the one to stay with Chae Kyung after she’s deposed!

So what are you guys watching? Maybe I need some fluffy romance or just simply something unique!
