The Secret of Love (不能恋爱的秘密) is an upcoming modern drama with the male and female lead looking very identical. Lol. My First Impression? They are very pretty to look at. Both have soft, cute features. The story follows our heroine who has lost her memories due to a fire accident eight years ago and seeks to reclaim those memories and discover why it happened. She’s also trying to investigate her father’s death in a car accident. She meets our cold and aloof heir of a big company and they start off on the wrong foot. But like all dramas, proximity brings them closer. The character description suggests they might be childhood friend (even his first love?) and she disappeared after the accident; having some disfigurement to her face. Let’s see whether this is true when the drama airs.
Another drama wrap-up! Novoland: Pearl Eclipse (九州·斛珠夫人) is adapted from the novel written by Xiao Ru Qin and stars Yang Mi and William Chan. Yang Mi plays daughter of the merfolks and her entire village and people are slaughtered due to the people’s obsession with pearls and pearls were created from merfolk’s tears. During this uncertain period, our heroine is taken in by the hero who is a powerful official of the imperial court, and she disguises as a male disciple by his side. After they return to the capital, the job of guarding the King is given to her. And he’s the third leg of this love triangle. The King has long given up on his court, exhausted by the internal and external turmoils, therefore he sits back and watches our male lead’s struggle to save the country. When he finds out his pretty guard is a girl, his feelings complicate everything.
Book 2 in Tang Qi’s Three Lives Three Worlds series is The Pillow Case, a dedicated love story between Bai Feng Jiu (Bai Qian’s niece, played by Dilraba) and Dong Hua Dijun (played by Vengo Gao). If you have watched Yang Mi’s Eternal Love, you’ll remember these two characters. First set of posters are out!
