Love and Destiny (宸汐缘) started airing on July 15. 4 episodes are already on Croton Media’s Youtube page and the first 14 have been released for iQiyi VIP. What are your thoughts so far?
Sorry for the lack of updates, the past week had been hard. T_T
Youku bought a lot of dramas to air under its wing in the upcoming months. Let’s see if any project piques your interest!
Do you remember this drama? It’s been a while, at least three years since it’s been shelved. Small Town Adventures (茧镇奇缘) is a thrilling mystery-solving show set in the republican period and look at how far these actors have gone since their younger days! Victoria Song, Jiang Jin Fu, Yang Yang, and Zhang Zhi Xi!
I really don’t know the appeal of spy dramas. Lol. Even with Li Ying’s Rookie Agent Rouge, I did not complete it. And yet here we are…with another spy drama in our hands, this time led by Qin Jun Jie and Xu Lu called Spy Hunter (天衣无缝). They are a fresh pairing and I like Xu Lu in bigger productions. The director and writer have been good before so let’s hope it’s not another deflated attempt.
I last talked about this drama earlier this year. Remember how some of us wanted to correctly translate its name? Thanks heavens the production company took care of that problem during the press conference held today. The official title is now The Chronicles of Town Called Jian. Did someone fall asleep and forget one missing letter in the title? Ahum.
Check the 5-minute trailer to see if it caters to your taste!
If the title sounds weird, it’s because Google hasn’t done a good job. Chinese title is 茧镇奇缘, so pleaseeee help me out with a fitting translation (I’m embarrassed, obviously! We need a Translator on this ship!) Anyway, it’s a new Cdrama based on a novel with the same name and is set in the Republican-era (again, I know! Bought your ticket yet?) From the green cast (they keep getting younger!), we have another batch of young actors added to the small screen. This includes K-pop idol, Victoria Song, from the group F(X), playing the female lead. The leading guy is handed to Jiang Jin Fu, the young lad in Xuan Yuan Sword – Rift of the Sky. Unfortunately, I will have to break more hearts by revealing that our baby, Yang Yang, will be playing the second lead. Hopefully, his character is complex enough to make up for your sinking feeling!
As I don’t follow K-pop anymore, I have no idea about Victoria’s acting. She was in Taiwanese drama, When Love Walked In, in 2012. Is she serviceable or good?
