Perhaps to celebrate its lead’s 20th birthday, xianxia drama Legend of Awakening released its first video previews today. This includes the MV for the theme song by Wang Sulong (below), as well as previews for the leads on Weibo here.
Chen Feiyu turned down Ever Night 2 for this, so this drama better be worth it.
As Wuhan opens up on April 7th, actor and Wuhan-native Wang Kai voices a story of medical professionals, workers, and ordinary people coming together to pull through in the 76 days that Wuhan was under quarantine.
Wang Kai, whose mother had planned to visit him on set for Chinese New Year before being stuck in Wuhan, had previously donated 2million RMB to Wuhan hospitals and charities in addition to dozens of ventilators. He also recorded for the cubicle hospital radio service to support those in them.
Director Zhang Kaizhou (The Story of Ming Lan) returns to the Song Dynasty in Serenade of Peaceful Joy (formerly Held in the Lonely Castle) in this tale of the court and harem of the Emperor Renzong of Song (Wang Kai). The series focuses on the attempts of the leads to try to balance their responsibilities and personal lives and stars Wang Kai, Jiang Shuying, Ren Min, Bian Cheng, Yang Le, Wang Churan, Ye Zuxin, Yu En’tai, Xu Lingyue, and Zhang Tian’ai.
Here’s a compilation of the much more enticing TV spots for Serenade of Peaceful Joy (formerly Held in the Lonely Castle), focusing on the relationships between the Emperor (Wang Kai) and his Empress (Jiang Shuying), favorite concubine (Wang Churan), daughter (Ren Min), and first love (Crystal Zhang Tian’ai), as well as that between the Princess and her first crush (Ding Jiawen), husband, eunuch (Bian Cheng), and father.
The drama has been moved back to April 7th due to a national day of mourning for victims of the coronavirus on April 4th.
Titled Truth or Dare 花好月又圆, the mistaken-identity rom-com that sounds like a mix of Wrong Carriage, Right Groom and My Fair Princess stars Li Gengxi (absolutely perfect in A Little Reunion) as Xiao Wanzi, a mischievous and optimistic young girl who performs on the street for a living. Huang Junjie(Dr. Cutie)costars as the third young master of the Mei family and her love interest.
