First Impression: What do you think of The Romance of Tiger and Rose with Zhao Lu Si and Ding Yu Xi?

It’s here! Airing today! Let me know how it is!

The Romance of Tiger and Rose (传闻中的陈芊芊) is a ancient romcom drama with an interesting storyline. Our heroine is a struggling scriptwriter with a passion for her career. She finally finds an investor for her drama but right before they can begin filming, the male lead actor openly shows dissatisfaction about the story, putting a stop to the production. Frustrated, she vows to prove her ability, just to find herself in her own fictional world. She’s NOT the female lead but rather the unlikable third princess, a minor but quite scandalous female who is destined to die in 3 episodes, by the hands of the male lead no less (!!). With a death sentence hanging over her head, she has to fight against time and is caught between the male lead (Ding Yu Si) who plays a sly prince, and second male lead (Sheng Ying Hao), a perfect man at all angles.

From a supporting character to female lead? This sounds like one hilarious drama! Zhao Lu Si might be joining my harem of girlcrushes soon. Why is she so adorable?

Airing 5/18!

Drama adaptation of Chang Ge Xing confirms Dilireba, Wu Lei, and Zhao Lu Si

Hmmm, I don’t know what to say about this casting choice. It’s a beautiful group of people for sure but Wu Lei romancing Dilireba is a little odd. Lol. Well, filming has just begun for those interested. The original male lead is Qu Chu Xiao who had to bow out due to management issue. Chang Ge Xing aka Song of the Long March (長歌行) is adapted from the manhua of the same name written by Xia Da. It follows our heroine, who’s a princess on the run. Her father is Crown Prince Li but after the new Emperor ascended the throne, he ordered his brothers and families put to death. She escapes, fakes her own death, disguises herself as a male and plots her revenge against the new Emperor, becoming a fierce military leader in the process. The manhua is highly rated among fans and has solid rating of 9 on douban. Readers also poured their hearts out for the arts as well.

I’m reading reviews and our heroine sounds awesome – merciless and highly intelligent. Since she was young, she was trained in martial arts and battle strategies, so she holds her own in a fight. I always have hopes in the novel description and the drama adaptation hasn’t been accurate …..at all in recent years. Lol. I really do hope she kicks A$$!! Our male protagonist is no less of a worthy character – he’s the adopted son of Jieli Khan, a leader of his own army, who is known for his ruthlessness and doing things his ways in the beginning. He slowly melts that attitude and begins to realize how his actions could affect those around him after meeting our leading lady. But he doesn’t know SHE is a SHE for a little bit. HEH.

Gosh, gosh. Baby Wu Lei needs a few years to really execute that general look. xD
