Meng Xing Chang An (梦醒长安) is based on the novel written by Shi Si Que and follows the story of two sisters, played by Zhang Yu Xi and Xuan Lu, who were ripped apart by politics when they were younger, and reunited on opposing sides as adults. The story is set during the Tang Dynasty under Emperor Wenzong’s rule where powerful eunuchs run the court. He and other government officials plan to get rid of Eunuch Chou Shi Liang (Mickey He) but their plan failed, leading to the execution of prime minister Wang Ya’s family, leaving only two surviving granddaughters. They are separated and raised by different camps, meeting seven years later, when the new Emperor (Cheng Yi) launches the two camps against each other.
Period drama, Please Give Me A Pair of Wings (请赐我一双翅膀), with Aaron Yan and Ju Jing Yi has new promotional materials in a long trailer and a bunch of stills. The story follows our heroine as the chief police’s daughter, whose father was killed and she becomes the top suspect and gets sent to prison. Aaron plays a detective who eventually finds out that all the evidence against the heroine was a big fat lie, he heads out to clear her name.
Trying a new feature since I see fans always asking is this or that drama worth checking out? If you’re watching the new modern vampire drama Can Not Hug You with Xing Zhao Lin and Zhang Yu Xi, let us what you think: the goods and the bads! It begins airing today 11/20.
I feel like this is the perfect premise for a Kdrama (skinship alert!), maybe they will remake it next since it’s based on a Korean comics, unTouchable, illustrated by massstar. Can Not Hug You stars Xing Zhao Lin (The Eternal Love) and Zhang Yu Xi (My Little Princess) as the main OTP. Our heroine’s a beautiful modern day vampire who survives by absorbing energy through touching other human beings and he’s the gorgeous germaphobe who just moves in next door. Perfect setup for a modern day rom-com.
