The Imperial Coroner (御赐小仵作) is an upcoming detective drama based on the novel written by Qing Xian Ya Tou. The story follows our heroine as she makes her way from the countryside to make her dream come true as a female coroner. On her journey, she meets our hero, a Prince, who then recruits her to solve a case that lasted 18 years. Her abilities begin to shine and she’s approved by the emperor to become an imperial coroner!
I recognize our female lead from Young Blood (I still need to finish that series!)
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?
