The Silence of the Monster with Bi Wen Jun, Zhu Zheng Ting, Sun Yi Han, and Zhang Bo Jia confirmed air date

The Silence of the Monster (孤独的野兽) is a modern drama following four individuals as they come out of their shelves and learn to heal.

Synopsis from Viki: He Chu Feng (Bi Wen Jun) and Luo Bin (Zhu Zheng Ting) are the two oddball operators of Monster Vintage, a notable antique store. They live in the same house together, with only a large cat for company, and have become accustomed to each other’s bizarre quirks, although their respective love lives are nothing to write home about! He Chu Feng is a man of mystery, and is the store’s locksmith extraordinaire – able to open any lock imaginable on a range of antique pieces. And Luo Bin is the master appraiser of the duo – a man capable of assessing an antique’s worth in mere seconds.

But their lives are about to turn upside down when two women enter the fray. First comes a trainee lawyer named Sui Yi (Sun Yi Han). The duo agrees to let them live with her, forcing them into an unfamiliar routine of housework – but also sparking a somewhat unconventional fledgling romance between the positive and personable Sui Yi and the ever-enigmatic He Chu Feng. Then, an ace auctioneer named Fang Qi (Zhang Bai Jia) comes to seek help from the housemates. She has suffered an injury and needs assistance – and it’s love at first sight for Luo Bin the moment he sets eyes on her. Can romance really blow a fresh wind through this antiques emporium?

For a drama title that reminds me of The Silence of the Lamb, I expected something darker? Lol.

Feng Shao Feng, Peng Xiao Ran, and Zhu Zheng Ting get entangled in Shining Just For You

Shining Just For You (星河长明) is adapted from the novel written by Zhan An (novel name is Novoland: The Princess From Plateau (九州·朱颜记)  and it looks like another twisted love story. The story follows eighth princess (Cheng Xiao Meng) of the Ye Bei clan and her close friend (our female lead, Peng Xiao Ran) who is shunned because she is considered an outsider. In order to attack Ye Bei, Emperor Gao of Chao Kingdom (male lead) devises a plan to give him a good excuse; he proposes a marriage to eighth princess knowing that she would reject, thus giving him a reason to attack. To save her relatives and the kingdom, eighth princess jumps to her death over a cliff. The Ye Bei clan suffers greatly, leading to their destruction. Our female lead swears to take revenge for her best friend and Ye Bei clan, thus she creates a new identity and enters the palace to assassinate the king. Her failing attempts stir interests in the King and he slowly falls in love with her. Our heroine is moved but her loyalty to her friend didn’t allow betrayal. SPOILER: She continues to plot and eventually the Chao Kingdom falls and the King dies. Not sure how…but if this synopsis remains true in the drama, fans are doomed for tears!

Airing 11/30!
