A handful of dramas just released their airing dates…. for what’s left of March. Lol.
Impressive sets, camera angles, and atmospheric colors. Looks like we have another great drama lined up. Based on the life story of military general Huo Qu Bing who lived courageously but died young of the Western Han Dynasty, The Fated General (霍去病) features Zhang Ruo Yun in the titular role, along with Mao Xiao Tong, Johnny Bai Yu, Yu Meng Long, and Li Hong Yi as his loved ones and enemies.
After filming for 6 months, we finally get a peek at some official posters and stills for the upcoming historial drama, The Fated General (霍去病), based on the life story of military general Huo Qu Bing of the Western Han Dynasty. Eddie Peng played the same role in Sound of the Desert. Zhang Ruo Yun is playing the brilliant general and alongside are some pretty men and women; including Princess Wei Young‘s break-out star, Rachel Mao Xiao Tong, Go Princess Go‘s Alan Yu Meng Long, and Memory Lost‘s romantic cop, Johnny Bai Yu. I like this cast. A LOT.
I finally started to watch this drama. Funny how things worked out. From the promos, I was initially more drawn to Memory Lost but the ending themesong of Snail caught me by surprise. Such a lovely song by Joey Z. Each episode went by pretty quick and I found myself liking our chosen team members from the Animal Kingdom. Lol.
Since both are Ding Mo’s novels, I’ve placed them in the same post for easy access. ;D Brains vs Brawn. Which one will capture your heart?
These two productions crack me up. Same day release of stills, press conference, and a final trailer? If you were Ding Mo, how would you feel? Proud that your works are being compared? Upset that they are being compared? Anyhoo, good thing for us fans is you don’t have to choose one over another, unless you want to. Lol. I’m interested in both! 😀
Awww. So cute. If the first trailer is all about Nick Wang kicking butts in non-stop action, the second trailer shows his brusque side with his lady love, Wang Zi Wen. I’m tempted to add a few words to the title. When A Snail Falls In Love with A Lion… or is it the other way around? Lol.
Alright! Finally some confirmed news on the next big-budget historical drama, The Fated General (霍去病), based on the life story of military general Huo Qu Bing of the Western Han Dynasty. The last actor in recent memory to play this role for me was Eddie Peng in Sound of the Desert. Zhang Ruo Yun is chosen for the titular lead role for quite some time already and now they have the crew to start rolling them cameras. Cast members are nothing short of beautiful. Wee-bit too baby-looking to be considered as fearsome on the battlefield, though.
