First peek at Yang Yang’s upcoming novel-to-drama adaptation of the popular work The King’s Avatar (全职高手) written by Butterfly Blue is out! Looks very similar in style to Just One Smile is Very Alluring, with the boys strutting together in unified arrogance. Lol. From the smiles, the whole experience is pretty unique in the modern filming realm.
What’s going on?! It’s the end of the year so we are just gonna release dramas that have been sitting on the shelf in the last two years? Joining the fun in our festive December is another novel-to-drama adaptation: Bu Fu Ru Lai, Bu Fu Qing or Not to fail God, Not to fail You, and popular translated on the net as Faithful to Buddha, Faithful to You (不负如来不负卿). Written by Xiao Chun (pen name), it’s a time-traveling story. Not once, but many times. Actress Chen Rong (1986, Brothers, Weddings Postponed) is the female lead, Ai Qing, and Niu Zi Fan (1994, a graduate from Shanghai Theatre Academy) is playing the famous Buddhist monk, Kumarajiva. The story follows an epic love story through time when a historian student successfully time-travels through time (many failed attempts before). She’s 23 when she meets our little monk who is 13 at the time, and their relationship begins as teacher and student, but he develops a crush on her ever since. Years passed for him but only mere months for her and they meet again when the little boy is at the blossoming age of 24. They recognize their love for each other but he is man with a divine mission and they suffer immensely. The third time they meet again, Kumarajiva is in the worst years of his life and she stays by his side through it all.
If dramaland taught me anything, if you trip and fall face-first in real life, 100% of the time, your face will kiss the hard granite floor instead of a well-moisturized kissable lips. Lol. In the upcoming Season 1 of webdrama Caught In The Heartbeat, Jiao Jun Yan and Wei Da Xun (and the whole cast) take turns pointing their guns at something. The amount of stills with them pointing their guns are so abundant it’s cracking me up. Exactly, how many bad guys are there?
Not stopping to let her hair grow out because frankly, she rocks the short cut like she’s the original, Jiao Jun Yan is back into action with a new drama called Caught In The Heartbeat (超感) with Wei Da Xun (Shuttle Love Millennium). The story follows young and promising man Tang Yi Xiu (Wei Da Xun) who embarks on a journey to become a policeman and meets our heroine Shi Gu Jing (Jiao Jun Yan), a woman who hailed from a family of officers but was in an accident overseas which puts her in a coma. She eventually wakes up without any recollection about the accident. She meets the hero, both joining the police force, fighting injustice while trying to uncover the secrets behind her accident.
