The Longest Promise (玉骨遥) is an upcoming fantasy drama based loosely on the novel Zhu Yan (prequel to the Li Yi Feng’s Mirror drama) written by Cang Yue (Listening Snow Tower). Ren Min plays a kind and headstrong princess of the Chi Clan who escapes an arranged marriage (her name is the name of the novel; looks like we can expect a lot of changes to make this Male Lead-centered drama), and Xiao Zhan plays a cold and aloof royal prince who is sent to the mountains to cultivate (due to the Grand Priest’s premonition of him falling in love with a girl). He is nine years older than her and she becomes his disciple… their destiny and romance tied to the future of Kong Sang Kingdom. At one point, she draws his blood. If you like the leads (or one of them) stabbing one another, this is your drama! 😛
Mirror: Twin Cities (镜双城) is based on the novel written by Cang Yue (Listening Snow Tower). It’s the first novel in her Mirror series. Persisting war in Central Plains forces optimistic Miao girl named Na Sheng to leave her home and wanting to escape the chaos of the world by going to an otherworldly fairy land, known as Desolate Clouds. During this journey, she meets many interesting characters, including our male lead, Su Mo, who is a blind masterful Puppeteer and carries around 2-foot high puppet he refers to as his brother, A Nuo. But is Desolate Clouds really a peaceful utopia as told from generation to generation? I guess not because what awaits our heroine is turmoil and bloodshed among many races and peoples.
