The Moon Brightens For You (明月曾照江东寒) is a wuxia drama adapted from the novel written by Ding Mo. She’s paired up with Alan Yu Meng Long. It follows the growth of our female lead who leaves the protective arms of her parents to join jianghu and the male lead who is on a revenge mission for his clan, but he hides his motives behind a pretty and sickly appearance of a playboy. hehe. We all know who loves this type of male leads. xD
Xing Fei is a busy girl, jumping from one drama to another. Her last drama to air was Forget You Remember Love, a remake of popular Taiwanese drama Princes Turns to Frog wrapped up filming last month. Did anyone happen to catch it? I love the original too much to want to watch the new one. Lol. That is my 14-year old self talking to you guys, who also holds the ring of true love in her fan collection. xD *embarrassed*
Did Jin Yong perhaps sign a contract somewhere that all his new novel-to-drama adaptations must be headlined by new faces? The recent adaptations have all been really decent so far so I’m hoping the same rings true for this production. I have only ever watched the TVB version in 1999 with Sunny Chan and Charmaine Sheh. I both loved and hated it; heavy changes from the novel. Lol. I watched till the end because Sunny and Charmaine looked so damn good and sweet together. I was ready to spit blood if I they don’t get a happy ending. xD
Back then TVB background music for their wuxia series is top-notch. It creates the mood for me to remember the series fondly until this day.
