City of Hopeless Love’s concept art and stills for “Thirteenth Moon”

Ye Zhen, the female lead of the series, is played by Lin Yuan and has yet to make an appearance in the stills. Isn’t this gorgeous?

Concept art is gorgeous; artists can get away with colorful costumes and unusual hair coloring much more easily than directors can. You can enjoy some gorgeous art for City of Hopeless Love (more here) at the end of the post. (Loads of stills under the cut today). 

On another note, stills for Guo Zhenni‘s chapter, “Thirteenth Moon,” have recently been released. Guo Zhenni plays a pair of twin sisters, one who is the assassin Yingge. Her sister marries her first love, while the male lead of this subplot accidentally marries Yingge. Although he finds out about the deception, he ends up wholly in love with her (within three days!?). He becomes willing sacrifice all for her; ie,  protecting her man(?) and ultimately dying of poison in order to protect her. I’m waiting for the actual drama to come out to learn where the dream weaving comes in. photo 704_981463_186944_zpsc3770637.jpg

    • We’re glad that you enjoy this weekly, but unfortunately, Jo is currently on vacation. We will do our best to make up for it, but there is no guarantee that we can do a regular post every week. Please check back another time!

  1. Is this one of those wuxia dramas or historical dramas? I swear to god that the costumes in these period dramas have gotten more and more inaccurate and gaudy lol.

    • This is a fantasy drama loosely adapted from a novel called Hua Xu Yin. The concept art looks so much better than the actual costumes.

      • the costumes in these stills are actually better than…well, everything that Gan Tingting and most of the rest of the class wears. (Sigh, they look like something out of a cosplay or video game; not natural at all in a drama…)

        • Thanks for posting. Yes, i saw some of those costumes, eyesore:( Luckily Jiang Xn & Yuan Hong have the best costumes so I can at least watch a qtr of the drama, lol.
