I was preparing for bed until I saw the onslaught of updates on news sites. Turns out it’s Qixi Festival aka Chinese Valentine’s Day! Drama productions release new stills to celebrate the annual meeting of two (tragic) lovers, the tale of Zhi Nu and Niu Lang’s forbidden love as the cowherd and weaver girl in Chinese mythology. I’m sure we have at least watched one adaptation of this story.
You might drown in the stills so I focus mostly on ancient dramas….for now. Lol.
After “Princess Agents”, I was in serious need of some fluffy, light-hearted content. Thankfully I’d just happened to see a trailer for “Let’s Shake It, ET”《颤抖吧！阿部》and because it reminded me a lot of “Go, Princess, Go” and was different from any of the C-dramas I’d watched before, I wanted to check it out. While it may not be getting as much attention as “The King’s Woman” or “Xuan Yuan Sword: Han Cloud”, this is my favorite show right now. I know most people are waiting for it to be subtitled before watching so I wanted to give an overview of the series and what happened in the first few episodes as it’s a comedy well worth watching.
Another young coupling. Janice Wu Qian (Fighter of the Destiny) and Zheng Ye Cheng (Hua Jiang Hu Zhi Bu Liang Ren) pair up for upcoming period drama called An Oriental Odyssey (盛唐幻夜) about solving cases, making friends, and saving the world? All the good things youngsters do back then before violent video games were invented. Lol! (Sorry, gotta jab at my brothers here!)
Adapted from the novel written by Feng Diu Zi, Let’s Shake It ET (颤抖吧，阿部!) is an upcoming webdrama set in the Tang dynasty featuring Hua Qian Gu’s daughter and son (hehe): An Yue Xi (Taekwondo Girl 2) and Zheng Ye Cheng (Bu Liang Ren) in a quirky fantasy romance.
