Drama adaptation of Lost You Forever (Eternally Yearning For You) confirms Yang Zi, Deng Wei, Tan Jian Ci, and Zhang Wan Yi

Lost You Forever (Eternally Yearning For You, 长相思) is a novel written by the well-loved Tong Hua, and is the sequel to Once Promised (drama version is called A Life Time Love with Huang Xiao Ming and Song Qian in 2017).

It is a world of gods, demons, and mythical beings and they all live alongside humans, divided into three different kingdoms. I want to preface this by saying that most of the characters have multiple identities (very confusing to me as I only wanted spoilers!). Our heroine, Xiao Yao (Yang Zi), is a small-town doctor and spends the majority of the first part (multiple volumes) of the novel as a man. She has no memories of her past in the beginning of the novel. In her life, three important men will sweep in and only one shall remain by her side. The first man that we meet in according to the novel is Tu Shan Jing (Deng Wei). He’s beaten to a pulp and in no condition to survive, left to die on the streets. But our heroine picks him up and heals him. And in return, he promises to be her servant, to listen to only her. He’s actually the 2nd young master of a powerful family. The second man we meet shortly after is part of the past that she doesn’t remember. He’s Zhuan Xu (Zhang Wan Yi), a long-lost cousin she spent time with during her childhood. His side of the story isn’t told until the third volume, which makes for an interesting WAH moment (hidden for so long?!). Lol. The third male lead is a general with white hair; he is Xiang Liu (Tan Jian Ci), a nine-headed demon and wildly considered as her soulmate.

Koala has translated the novel, read chapter one here. Please go to her index to find the rest of the chapters.

The story follows their unchanging bond through hardships and challenges after their mother passed away, and they are left with a good-for-nothing father, played by Liu Jun. It spans 30 years.

I see a few familiar faces from the The Story of Ming Lan (same production company, Daylight Entertainment). The spineless, dimpled father, the straightforward first wife, and one of the sisters too!

Gulinazha and Xu Wei Zhou’s Da Tang Ming Yue changes name to Weaving A Tale of Love and gets air date immediately

Da Tang Ming Yue or now known as Weaving A Tale of Love (大唐明月 –> 风起霓裳) is an upcoming historical drama based on the novel written by Lan Yun Shu. And I want to add “loosely” because they basically just borrowed the names of some people in history. A lot of things were changed – such as our heroine time-traveling into the past, her career, etc. Xu Wei Zhou plays a character in the Tang dynasty, General Pei Xing Yan, known for his superior fighting skills. Gulinazha plays daughter of the female officer in the royal tailoring department who is forecasted to not do well with needles and thread. When she was five, her mother dies and she wakes up with no memory after an accident. She’s then taken in by her mother’s good friend and groomed to be a royal consort. Her mom’s wish was for her to escape the palace and live a peaceful life, and after a meeting with the great general Pei, she also yearns for a life outside of the walls. But her talent in making clothes attracts good and bad attention, allowing General Pei to jump and rescue her multiple times. They later find out the culprit behind all her misfortunes is done by the same woman who took her in.
