Drama Title: 兰陵王
I have to say, I cannot believe they are using MY FAVORITE MALE ACTOR FENG SHAO FENG and the girl from “It started with a kiss” Holy shit. Fuck yes. FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKK YESSSSSSSSSSS.
First of all, Feng shao feng is hot as fuck. Ariel Lin is beautiful as fuck. They are a match made in heaven and I love it.
Ariel has been in another ancient drama series 天外飞仙 with Hu Ge but I don’t really like that one so nah.
But shit. This drama was originally a really popular and famous novel in China. I guess they decided to make it a drama. I love this novel too!!!! read it so many times. I cannot believe it’s finally happening!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSS<3
It’s pretty much about this warrior guy who has the most beautiful face ever, so he is afraid that his enemies might make fun of him for his beautiful face, because well, if you are a warrior you shouldn’t be prettier than a boy. Well so he has a mask on all the time, a really scary mask. Everyone loves him, except for the emperor (who’s his cousin) because he is jealous of him. Anyways he meets this girl who has the ability to predict futures and they fall in love blah blah blah shit happens. Anyways, watch the freaking trailer.
MULAN DRAMA YOOOOOOO
I’m sure everyone knows what Mulan is about. So no need for summary right? Great.
Here’s the trailer~~~~
BTW this show is called: 巾帼大将军Mulan
On my drama radar ——- The
I have no words for Mickey He, but otherwise this looks AMAZING!
I love the hues they went with in styling the guys. Such a rich blue is gonna make the fighting look incredible.
The Four, based on the wuxia series by Wen Ruian, is the story of four young men – Cold Blood, Chaser, Heartless, and Iron Fist (badass!)– who each excel in different martial arts practices and use their expertise to bring down corruption and establish justice.
The story has been done before, but never with fantasy elements woven in. Can’t wait to see how this fresh take will affect story. ^^
I think the drama is still filming… so at the usual rate of cdrama releases we shouldn’t expect this until 2014ish
Dramas that you should watch → The Legend of Zhen Huan (后宫 甄嬛传)
Set in the Forbidden City during the reign of Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty, The Legend of Zhen Huan is everything a palace drama should be. Along with the intricate plot, the costumes, setting, and music are absolutely gorgeous. It’s hard to look away from the stunning headdresses and gorgeous dresses that the concubines wear. Added to that, you have wonderful acting thanks to Sun Li, Ada Choi, and Jiang Xin. While 76 episodes is quite the number for a drama like this one and the fact that the plot does slow down just a bit in the beginning, for me, it was certainly worth it all. Once I finished watching this, I feel like no other palace dramas can compare.
The story follows a young concubine by the name of Zhen Huan, who initially starts off as an innocent and kind-hearted person who wished to avoid the harem conflicts. However, she was able to catch the attention and gain the affections of the emperor, leading other concubines to become jealous and scheme against the concubine. Zhen Huan realizes that in order to protect herself and the people she loves, she must lose her kindness and fight back against those who threaten her.
What am I doing with my blessed free time? Why, watching a Chinese drama about a girl from the present waking up in the body of a noble woman from the 18th century and living a life of love, palace intrigue, and drama during one of the most confusing battles for succession of the Qing dynasty! And aside from having periodic shouting matches with my computer screen over character choices, I am also learning a lot about clothing trends from this era, because oh my god— BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, you don’t have to watch this drama for the character romances, or the political machinations, just watch it for the wardrobe. It is lovely. <3
Oh yeah.. in order to actually watch this drama, you might want to know what it’s called. The title is “Bubujingxin” — which seems to translate to “Startling by Each Step” which is actually a pretty good description and poetic besides.
WATCH IT~ WATCH THE PRETTY PRETTY CLOTHES~
I Can’t. This drama is TOO good.
Recently I find it difficult to finish a period drama, they just suck so bad. But I actually finished this one, from start to finish.
It tells the story of 18 hero’s in the Sui and Tang Dynasty. 18 men who swore brotherhood and every single one of them are awsome~~~ This guy is by far my favorite, and this love story… will you guys will have to watch it and decide for yourself if it’s a good ending or a bad ending. I will not spoil it~~~
What is wrong with some viewers that always seem to give actresses crap because they’re not attractive enough? I go on various sites and I keep seeing these comments:
(Yuan Shanshan in Swordsman 2012 as Ren Yingying)
Fans also expressed that Yuan Shanshan was not charismatic…
