Okay, okay. This remake looks pretty decent! Abundant of real outdoor scenes with waterfalls, mountains, and trees. The girls are gorgeous to look at and like I said last time, Zhu Xu Dan as Zhou Zhi Ruo is stealing all my attention without breaking a sweat. She has that cold beauty vibes going for her and I’m a sucker for it. Lol. Our hero played by Zeng Shun Xi worries me a little because he only has one expression throughout the trailer. xD To be fair though, Wu Ji the character isn’t very expressive…
You know me, I love behind-the-scenes videos. These Chinese productions have hundreds of workers on locations every day, so it’s not strange to see how fast they can shoot a drama within 3 months (usually modern), day-in-day-out. What we see onscreen is a the final results of blood and sweats and watching these videos always shows a new level of appreciation for the crew who works tirelessly behind the cameras all-year long.
Had a request to write about this drama. A lot of webdramas out there, so feel free to bring it up when I do miss them.
Hmmm, not sure why they called her Ugly ~ The girl is adorable beyond words. Adapted from the novel, Hi Ru Hua (嗨！如花), Zhu Xu Dan and Lai Yi reunite to bring you a light-hearted romcom for the summer. It has finished airing so you are free to marathon it! Her name might stem from the loving of her parents but she is raised without them and burdened by the fact that her twin brother has congenital heart disease, forcing her to make ends meet by picking up odd jobs throughout her life, selling everything and anything. Now she’s thick-skinned, loves money, and is fearless. Our male lead is an arrogant rich boy, as expected, who is recently shipped back after studying abroad in France. They clash when he’s forced to attend college like a regular kid and becomes roommate with her brother.
Hua Xin Shi or Painting Heart Expert/Teacher (working title) (画心师) is an upcoming webdrama produced by Sohu with the villain Zhu Xu Dan from Ten Miles of Peach Blossom and SpeXial’s Xiong Zi Qi (My Mr. Mermaid) as leads. I’m gonna attempt to translate the synopsis but it’s way over my head in terms of understanding. So there are these two opposing academies, one collects good, pure feelings/sentiments, while the other one feeds on people’s impure thoughts. Sounds like the good old days of good versus evil, and justice will prevail in the end.
