Adapted from yet another novel is And The Winner is Love (月上重火), based on the novel written by Jun Zi Yi Ze. It stars Luo Yun Xi and Chen Yu Qi in the leading roles. With unmatched beauty, our female lead is the young master of Chonghuo Palace who leaves her sect to experience jianghu. She chances upon her our male, Shang Guan Tou, who is the elegant and refined master of Yueshang Valley. They become friends and help each other along the way; their journey made difficult because our female lead is banished from her sect when the treasured martial arts manual goes missing. She makes it her mission to find the thief. Eventually, the thief is said to have mastered the powerful skills and is wreaking havoc in jianghu. Our leads do get married (!!) and the thief turns out to be someone from within.
I like how the title reveals the type of ending. Lol.
The stills are so beautiful. Pink and snow and blues. These two are no doubt very popular choices in costume dramas and here they are in the latest production, Happiness Over Two Lifetimes (两世欢). Chen Yu Qi plays a noble lady, daughter of a general, who is kidnapped on her way to a temple to rest/reflect. Upon waking up, her memory is gone and she escapes an arranged marriage by masquerading as a guy and becoming a constable in a local town, where she meets Yu Meng Long’s character, who was just assassinated and returned back under a new identity (memory intact). The two work together to unravel the deep political conspiracies within the palace.
Okay, okay. This remake looks pretty decent! Abundant of real outdoor scenes with waterfalls, mountains, and trees. The girls are gorgeous to look at and like I said last time, Zhu Xu Dan as Zhou Zhi Ruo is stealing all my attention without breaking a sweat. She has that cold beauty vibes going for her and I’m a sucker for it. Lol. Our hero played by Zeng Shun Xi worries me a little because he only has one expression throughout the trailer. xD To be fair though, Wu Ji the character isn’t very expressive…
