Chen Yuan (尘缘) is adapted from the novel written by Yan Yu Jiang Nan. This novel is often compared to Zhu Xian aka The Legend of Chusen. The novel opens up with us following a male character who was born holding a magical blue stone. He excels in all his studies and his parents have high hopes for the boy but he only wants to learn about cultivation. Turns out, he was an immortal who was punished to the mortal realm and this is his last reincarnation. The blue stone is our female lead. The drama synopsis says our female lead and the immortal involved with her were both punished to the mortal realm for letting a demon go. But they promise to meet again no matter what. I’m still a little confused about the story so I will update once I get further into the plot/novel. If anyone wants to fill me in, please do. Lol.
The drama remains quiet throughout its entire filming (started in 11/2020) and even ended on a rather low beat as well. I wonder why. I do miss seeing Ma Tian Yu and Angelababy does look effortlessly beautiful in the stills below.
Meng Xing Chang An (梦醒长安) is based on the novel written by Shi Si Que and follows the story of two sisters, played by Zhang Yu Xi and Xuan Lu, who were ripped apart by politics when they were younger, and reunited on opposing sides as adults. The story is set during the Tang Dynasty under Emperor Wenzong’s rule where powerful eunuchs run the court. He and other government officials plan to get rid of Eunuch Chou Shi Liang (Mickey He) but their plan failed, leading to the execution of prime minister Wang Ya’s family, leaving only two surviving granddaughters. They are separated and raised by different camps, meeting seven years later, when the new Emperor (Cheng Yi) launches the two camps against each other.
After Can Not Hug You, rising actor Xing Zhao Lin is back to ancient dramaland, this time he’ll be hunting demons with new face Jian Ren Zi . Wen Tian Lu (问天录) is loosely based on the a story some of us are aware of – Ghost Catcher: Legend of Beauty Zhongkui, and Lin will be playing the character in his younger days.
Hot dang! It’s December already…2017 is coming to an end. I can’t believe it. How time just flew over our head this year. We still have another month worth of dramas to watch! This is about half of them. Lol….
