Untouchable Lovers (凤囚凰) is the drama adaptation of the novel Feng Qiu Huang written by Tian Yi You Feng, starring two young faces – Song Wei Long (Long for You) and Guan Xiao Tong (Love of Aurora). Because Yumama had a hand in this project, I’m not sure how novel fans will find the new rewritten story. Lol.
“It’s Not Easy Being King” 《大王不容易》- (aka “King Is Not Easy”) – is an amusing Chinese series about a king who switches bodies with a palace maid and the hijinks that ensue. It’s a short and sweet, twenty episode series that makes for the perfect weekend binge session. These are the first series lead roles for both Zhang Yi Jie and Bai Lu, who make a good comedic pair both in the main story, as well as in a series of short skits at the end of each episode where they play a modern day version of their characters.
Well….. after filming the ancient version known as The King of Blaze, Bolin Chen and Jing Tian have moved on to the modern story of their characters’ reincarnations in 火王之千里同风. King of Blaze has a prequel called Melancholic Princess too but the synopsis doesn’t match up. Apparently, there are three parts to their story: one sets in the ancient times, the next in the Tang dynasty (this one sounds like it’s dropped), and finally in the modern period. They are joined by Zhang Yi Jie (King is Not Easy) and Lai Yu Meng (Go Goal Fighting!).
Sorry for the site downtime guys, I’m gonna expect more sudden downtime until I can get this sorted out. On the one hand, I don’t feel like AVV has grown, but on the other hand, resource is being eaten like hotcakes. Building a community is hard, building an active community is even harder.
I swear Yu Zheng must have a secret dungeon under Hengdian studio or something, where he secretly trains new faces and film dramas in the dark. This is another one of his productions! The English title could be translated to Not Easy to Be King or Da Wang Bu Rong Yi (大王不容易). Our heroine is an aspiring gluttonous chef, who loves pretty boys (HAHA) while our hero is an arrogant King with far-reaching ambitions for more power. Our second male lead is a royal guard for the king, who is desired by our female lead. OMGAH. The hijinks when the chef and the king swap role during a freak accident!
