Jin Yi Zhi Xia (锦衣之下) is based on the novel written by Lan Se Shi starring Ren Jia Lun (Glory of the Tang Dynasty) and Tan Song Yun (Mr. Mermaid) in a costume series about two investigative bureaus during the Ming Dynasty. He serves for the imperial secret police group called the Embroidered Uniform Guards and she’s a female Constable from Liu Shan Men, a government branch responsible for safety of the capital (remember Zhang Han’s The Four?) Our two leads meet when funds raised to repair a river went missing and her people are tasked to provide assistance to his people. She’s of course huffy puffy about working under him and he’s too proud (son of the leader). Motivated by self-interests, he doesn’t treat her kindly and things come to a climax when she finds out the Embroidered Uniform Guards were involved with her parents’ deaths.
Me: *imagined tiny teeny Tan Song Yun as a cop*
Me: *found a footage of her as a cop*
Me: LOL. *Uploaded!*
If you remember, the modern version of The Starry Night The Starry Sea (那片星空那片海), a drama adapted from Tong Hua‘s novel about merman ended earlier this year. The ancient version will showcase the leads’ previous love lives… The main OTP and some cast members returned with the addition of Hong Kong actor, Bosco Wong, donning a mask. Press conference was held this morning with Wei Chen singing the opening themesong.
I’ve got good news! Various news sites have revealed the air date for modern drama, Love & Life & Lie (遇见爱情的利先生), starring Chen Xiao and Zhou Dong Yu to be January 4th! What made it real news is when Chen Xiao’s lovely wifey, Michelle Chen, liked one of the weibo posts. =D Being shelved for two years, everyone can finally rejoice in seeing a lively pairing comes to life. Please be true!
Oh! I like it in motion much better! More because I thought Vic Zhou would be a sitting duck while the ladies, Chen Yao and Hu Bing Qing, swirl and twirl around him. Nope! He’s not! He fights and hunts and gets on with the ladies. Lol. First half is action-packed while the latter half seals the deal with more cute and romance.
Oh krap. This feeling is not good. When everything looks gorgeous and grand and then the chemistry between the leads is off. WAHHHH. WHY! I love Vic and all but his two leading ladies look like his little sisters… They really picked the youngest of the lot to be his OTP.
May is ending and June is quickly approaching ya’ll!! And one of the big guns to be released in one week is Chinese Paladin 5 (仙剑云之凡) starring a cradle of rising faces we have seen over the past year in Elvis Han, Gulnazar, Gina Jin, Xiao Cai Qi, and Jing Chao. They have started to gear up promotions with fresh stills and a new opening themevideo. At first listen, I wasn’t impressed but I will let the power of repeats do its magic. x500.
