Leaked photos of Ding Yu Xi and Yang Chao Yue filming for The Seventh Generation (Seven Unfortunate Lifetimes)

Seven Unfortunate Lifetimes All Thanks to a Moment of Impulse (一时冲动,七世不祥) is adapted from the novel written by Jiu Lu Fei Xiang. For some reason, they haven’t officially announced the leads but leaks are out!

The novel sounds wicked fun! Female lead is a cloud fairy with no big ambition and spends her days preferably sleeping. Lol. She works for the stingy God of Moon (aka Yue Lao aka Matchmaker in Heaven) for very little money and intends on using that money to buy herself a fan. She’s napping peacefully one day when our male lead literally drops onto the carpet outside of the Moon’s temple. He asks for help in a disrespectful manner and has the audacity to try and whip her! Luckily…or in this case, unluckily, his whip ends up destroying her most coveted thing – her fan! Now he’s getting whooped. LOL. She ties up her hair, performs a measly spell to trap him, and then chomps on him with all her strength. 😛 He then pulls her hair! A full-on brawl takes place. In front of Jade Emperor, they are punished for messing up other people’s red strings of fate – by being sent to the mortal realm and experiencing 7 lifetimes of fated love. HOHOHO. As it turns out though, it was Yue Lao who messed up the strings the other day when he was drunk and our heroine is covering up for him. In the first lifetime, our girl smartly avoids having her memory wiped and swears to make the hero’s life a miserable existence. HHAHAH. She’s good. I’m very tempted to continue the novel but I want to enjoy the little surprises in the drama too.

You can read the completed translated novel at Volarenovels.

Xianxia drama Chong Zi releases first batch of character posters, led by Xu Zheng Xi and Yang Chao Yue

Chong Zi (重紫) is based on the novel written by Shu Ke. The story is almost identical to Hua Qian Gu, with the romance being between a highly-respected immortal male lead who takes in our innocent female lead born with the dark force, fated to join the dark side, as his disciple. She does not want to harm anyone but everyone takes turn to torture/harm her just because of her dark force. Her shifu wants to protect her and the world, but he struggles to do both. The difference that I found between this and HQG is that in here, there are multiple life times/reincarnations, so she does die a few times, even at the hands of the man she completely adores.

Novel-to-drama adaptation of Chong Zi begins filming with leads Xu Zheng Xi and Yang Chao Yue

And I thought Xiao Zhan’s The Longest Promise (Yu Gu Yao) sounds like The Journey of Flower (Hua Qian Gu), and here comes Chong Zi to take that candle instead. Lol.
