The Legend of Chusen‘s Lu Xue Qi and Lin Jing Yu reunited in a new drama, adapted from Su Mo’s novel, Agarwood LikeBread Crumbs (沉香如屑).
Copied and pasted from my last post: The story sounds quite tragic too with the past, present, and future intertwining. The story follows our female lead, Yan Dan (Yang Zi), who is a lotus flower fairy; her “owner”, Yu Mo, is a fish who has cultivated for many years. The two travel around to many places, consuming evil, weak souls to nourish their power/bodies and calling it “doing one good deed a day”. However, one day, they encounter a Taoist Master, Tang Zhou (Cheng Yi), whose goal is to eliminate the evils of this world and protect the humans. The three travel together to find four ancient artifacts which leads to the discovery of their twisted past together – 800 years ago. Our female lead was an exotic four-leaf flower (not sure how to describe her…Lol) in heaven who also had a twin sister. Her body was considered extraordinary herbs with great healing powers. Yan Dan fell in love with the god of war, Ying Yuan, who was terribly injured during the battle with the demons and lost his eyesight. To heal him, she willingly gave up her petals, and even half her heart to cure his eyes. Alas, once he could see again, he didn’t appear to remember her…. To forget him, she gave up her immortality and just like that 800 years went by. Her fish friend escaped heaven to search for her and the two share 20 years of peace together.
800 years later, she meets Tang Zhou, who turns out to be Ying Yuan’s reincarnation. Ha. There’s a lovely twist to this story as you have to figure out the REAL male lead. There’s another guy who’s a god too but he comes and goes.
This looks like fun. The synopsis suggests something heavy but the trailers give off a different vibe. Legend of Two Sisters In the Chaos (浮世双娇传) stars Meng Zi Yi and Li Yi Tong as two sisters with virtues in the Fu household. It is prophesied that one of the two sisters will become the future Empress, leading to enemies on all sides. The sisters happen to like men in different camps and this will challenge their sisterhood.
Based loosely on the Boy-love novel Mo Dao Zu Shi (魔道祖师) written by Mo Xiang Tong Xiu, The Untamed in the drama adaptation features Xiao Zhan and Wang Yi Bo in a budding bromance instead. Go here to read more about the characters from the novel. Reading the synopsis of the story, reminds me a little bit of The Legends. Our main protagonist goes his own way to achieve immortality and creates his own demonic sect, which makes him hated by millions in the world for the chaos he created. The other sects/clans come together to kill him. The synopsis of the drama looks quite different from that of the novel. A lot of details are changed so tread carefully!
I’m not anywhere near the finale of Season 1 but it’s because I dread finishing Season 1 and won’t be seeing Chen Fei Yu anymore. I like his freshness, I like his sass, and was still holding on to the hope that they won’t change the lead actor. Silly me. In Season 2, Dylan Wang (Meteor Garden) will take over the male lead character. I haven’t seen Meteor Garden 2018 yet so no opinion from me about his acting.
How was the ending guys? Did they leave room for major plots in Season 2?
Ohhhhh Ohhhh….I am strangely looking forward to Ever Night (Jiang Ye), adapted from the fantasy novel written by Mao Ni. I have never seen the two leads in any other projects, both are rising new faces, especially Song Yi Ren who looks so adorable with her petite frame. What amazes me is the veteran actors enlisted for this drama, you have Leon Lai (what?! I didn’t recognize him at all, time is not kind to him, lol), Adam Cheng, Ni Da Hong, Hu Jun, just to name a few.
Will this be the drama to get me out of my drama drought? Just one caveat I notice….all the girls he meets….they look smitten with him…that is too many girls! But I’m also happy to report that the drama weibo has been posting short clips of the cast dubbing their own voices. Another yay!
