Gah. What’s going on here? Modern drama Shuke and Peach Blossom (舒克与桃花) has little to no promotion before they dropped the bomb We’re Airing today! The drama follows our unfortunate salesman who keeps bumping into a troublesome heiress and the two somehow end up in a contract marriage. Marrying into a rich family, our male lead has enemies in all the right places – his steely mother-in-law, his neither-friend-nor-foe father-in-law, his wife’s best friend who harbors a crush on him, and the return of his childhood sweetheart. Quite the popular man on the market. Lol.
Jin Xin Si Yu (锦心似玉) is based on the novel written by Zhi Zhi. The story takes place during the Ming Dynasty and follows our heroine as she rises from a lowly concubine’s daughter and enters a marriage with our hero – a general. She is a highly intelligent young maiden who is restrained in exhibiting her wisdom. Once in her new husband’s home, though she’s pressured by the complicated relationships and distrust, she uses her kindness and intelligence to win people’s respect. She helps her husband devise plans to oust the corrupt officials and defend their land from foreign invasions.
Filming has wrapped. Storyline reminds me of The Story of Ming Lan.
Historical drama The Imperial Age (山河月明) stars Feng Shao Feng, Chen Bao Guo, Ying Er, and Mickey He. It follows the story of Feng who plays Zhu Di, from a capable military leader, to a mature politician, and finally ascends the throne as the third Emperor of the Ming Dynasty. Chen will be playing his father, Hongwu Emperor, and Ying Er as Empress Xu, while Mickey He will be playing Feng’s eldest brother and crown prince.
With my new job, I don’t have a lot of spare time these days like before, especially on week days. Won’t be able to cut and upload individual clips so you guys have to work those warrior fingers through the scrolling button! Lol.
