SO. I have a few TV shows that I want to see, dramas that I want to recap. They are all historically based because China has a long history of producing modern dramas that I’m not interested in or Korea/America does a lot better in. I don’t know any of the airing dates. So if I start recapping, presumably it has started airing. (Sorry, just watched Sherlock Season 3, am a bit rude due to functioning sociopathic influences.)
Chang Ge Xing (秀丽江山之长歌行 Xiu Li Jiang Shan Zhi Chang Ge Xing) aka Ballad of the Long March
Seriously looking forward to this one. This is a fantastically TRUE historical story about an Emperor who loved only one woman. Interesting fact, there is only one emperor in history that had only one wife (it’s not this one) but this story is pretty fantastic. Strong female character played by Ruby Lin and Yuan Hong as the Emperor who loves her. Yup. Definitely watching this one. For more information and backstory go to Miss Koala’s post.
金玉良缘 – Jin Yu Liang Yuan aka Perfect Couple
Wallace Huo, the elegant master in almost all of his drama, is actually a very talented comedic actor. Long ago I watched a drama where he had to play a comedic character and i loved him a lot better as a comedian. He gets me every time with his delivery and his hilarious facial expressions. This drama will also have Tang Yan, who follows a long line of sweet actresses acting out feisty parts. Story should be about poor girl marries clueless but adorable rich guy and they learn about each other along the way. I want to see this and be impressed. If not, at least I can watch and fall in love with the adorkable Wallace Huo. Watch this to see what I mean about Wallace.
绝爱之城/ Jue Ai Zhi Cheng or 华胥引 / Hua Xu Yin
For the trailer, it looks like they spent a great deal of money and the costumes (for the most part) looks pretty. Also, Yuan Hong is in this one, and I have a soft spot for this boy. I checked the wiki page for this one, not really sure how accurate the synopsis is but will probably check it out for kicks. Looks like court intrigue mixed with fairy tales. Kevin Cheng and Yuan Hong are basically why I will watch this. My BBJX boys are back together!
Here’s an english teaser trailer. I watched it, and while it’s intriguing, I should also not be sleep deprived while watching this. So it made very little sense as to what’s going on in it.
犀利仁师 – The Great Incisive Teacher
I want to see real life couple and on screen hotshots Nicky Wu and Liu Shi Shi in a light hearted comedy, sparks flying, doing what they do best, make love to each other with their eyes in an ancient Chinese drama. I need some light hearted fare in the midst of heavy dramas that I might want to watch. Also fellow BBJX alum and 10th prince Ye Zu Xin plus Gui Gu (吴映洁) of Lu Zhen fame are in this, they are beyond cute and talented. Below is a behind the scenes of Nicky/ShiShi cuteness.
