The opening sequence for the upcoming Huang Xiaoming/Wang Luodan drama “Bei Ai Fang Zu” (Exiled By Love) was recently released, giving glimpses into of the high production value of this production that Huang Xiaoming said would be his last drama for a while (this was before he decided that Summer of Bubbles was too good to pass up).
The title was recently changed from An Xiang, or Hidden Fragrance. It may have been confusing for audiences, since this was also the name of the brilliant “Jin Fen Shi Jia” theme song, which was composed by my one of my favorite contemporary Chinese composers of all time, San Bao. This one’s not even really a real theme song, although it still does the job in dramatizing striking images from the series.
Despite the fact that it stars two of the hottest stars in China right now and twenty million yuan investment, the publicity for this show has been relatively low-key. In fact most people who know of this series probably don’t know the title has been changed. But by the time the series is slated to air (sometime this summer or early this fall) the stars should draw all eyes to it. Huang Xiaoming is a decent actor who hasn’t been seen in modern drama in a while, Wang Luodan’s acting has great range, and still loved in China after “Fen Dou”. If they don’t attract attention, then the lovely beaches of Sanya where this is filmed certainly should.
