Here you go! Updates on webdramas that release on Valentine’s Day for people who just want to cuddle under a warm blanket like me! I have written about them before so if you want to read the previous posts, just click on the drama name in the tag line.
Adapted from the comic The Distance of Light Between You and Me (我与你的光年距离), the official English title is Long For You, an upcoming youth romance featuring Song Wei Long (Demon Girl 2, Feng Qiu Huang) and Zhou Yu Tong (The Journey). Our heroine is a special girl because she’s an immortal; living for thousand of years has desensitized her compassion and she’s frosty and indifferent in the inside despite the bright smiles that play on her lips. She lives with the goal of finding her first love a thousand years ago… and at the end of 2016, she meets a man carrying her love’s face but his love is different than that of the former, rekindling her passion and enthusiasm for life, and perhaps unraveling the knot many centuries ago. Because she desires an eternal love, their love story adapts and changes accordingly.
The trailers definitely suggest a dark revengey romance. (He stabs her?!)
(This post sat in the draft section for 8 months, I totally forgot about it! Shame on you K!)
Ma Ke is still hot on that iron! His next drama to air, The Journey, is adapted from the novel Journey to Seek Past Reincarnations (寻找前世之旅) written by Vivibear. I tried reading the novel but heck, the male lead is never to be found. Turns out he doesn’t appear until the 3rd story. The storyline reminds me of Hua Xu Yin a little. Our female lead is raised by a mysterious master who doesn’t age. They reside in a mysterious tea house, where only those fated to see can visit and task them with commissions. Those commissions are related to their past lives and they come to seek help on resolving the dilemmas of this life. Our heroine is taught the ability to time-travel through time to different dynasties, and in each story, she causes heartaches (to herself) and to the men she meets. The only price to pay is a single tear. Will she be able to solve her own past regrets?
Beside Ma Ke, we also have second male lead in Fu Xin Bo and female lead in Zhou Yu Tong.
Remember the highly rated Korean series You Who Come From Another Star with Kim Hubby and Jeon Ji Hyun in 2013? And then do you remember the plagiarism lawsuit that transpired for a little bit before settling out-of-court? Yep. The new Chinese Fantasy drama, Snow Girl (雪姬), is based on a Korean comic book called Seol Hee, written by Kang Kyung Ok. It stars Yumama’s new pretty boy, Song Wei Long (Demon Girl) and Zhou Yu Tong (Heroin, Love Weave Through A Millennium). The only difference in story: Our heroine is the person who’s injured and subsequently received treatment from an alien and gains eternal youth. And just like that she lives on earth for 400 years before meeting a man wearing the same face as the alien who saved her.
