Whoopsie! This post is nearly 2 weeks late. It was just sitting in my draft section as the airing dramas one after another distracted me. Lol.

New Batch of Cdramas to Air: Master Wait a Moment, Hello Prosecutor, GO into Your Heart, The Justice, Double Tap

A few dramas airing on the same day here… I wonder if the new frenzy to secure a slot is done so before the “clean-up crew” finds something they don’t like to shelve a drama indefinitely.

Zhang Hao Wei becomes The Master of Cheongsam with Gai Yue Xi

Qiyi’s synopsis: After Lu Yuan Zhi fell apart with his teacher and suffered oppression from his seniors, he left Beiping and headed to Shanghai. With his hard work, he earned recognition in Shanghai. When war erupted in Beiping, Lu Yuan Zhi headed back and swore not to make cheongsams for the Japanese. He used his skills to become one of the greatest costume designers of China.

Interesting topic and I expect to see a lot of pretty cheongsam/qipao!

The Trust: Drama adaptation of manhua No Doubt In Us with Song Yan Fei and Zhang Hao Wei drops First Stills

The Trust (两不疑) is the drama adaptation of the popular manhua No Doubt In Us aka Liang Bu Yi from author Lu Ye Qian He, You Zhi Jiao Zi. The story sounds absolutely adorable. Our main couple is the King and Queen respectively. She’s from a general’s family, so she likes to fight, ride horses, archery, while our King is weak and likes to read. She marries him but due to family issues and their complete opposite personalities, they never get along and prefer to stay out of each other’s way. However, one day, they fall in a pool together (she pushes him when he gets too close, hehe) and their souls swapped! Now she’s the King who needs to attend the courtly matters and even go to battle, while he finally realizes his harem is not a very nice place, including his own mother, the Empress Dowager. They see things from each other’s shoes, beginning to emphasize and understand, get close and develop feelings.

You can read the English Translated of the webcomics here. There’s also a planned animation too (check trailer).

Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.

Which ones are you looking forward to?

Love Is All with Zhang Ruo Nan and Zhang Hao Wei to air

Love Is All (师爷请自重) is an ancient romcom based on the novel written by a familiar name in Jiu Xiao Qi (My Mr. Mermaid, Skate Into Love) starring Zhang Ruo Nan (Cry Me a Sad River) and Zhang Hao Wei (Joy Of Life). She is a quirky, wealthy miss who frequently quarrels with the county magistrate, our main guy. Using their brains, the two team up to solve cases. Hmm, that is the shortest baidu synopsis I have seen in a while. The author has written quite a lot of light-hearted comedies which mostly translated well onscreen with positive reception. Hoping this is the same!

Airing on 4/25!
