  1. So Tangren’s next project is Chinese Paladin’s movie? I hoped for Three lives three worlds: ten miles of peach blossoms adaption.

    • I’m also hoping for the Three lives adaptation movie. Last I heard the script was done and just going through editing but no word on casting etc yet.

      • I think it might be because their next project was suppose to be CP5, but it didn’t get approved, so many they’re just using the resources for CP5 for the movie?

  2. Is it just me or is there just an uproar of Republican era dramas planning to be aired this year? All the ones you mentioned here plus Lady and the liar, Cruel Romance (Huang Xiao Ming &Chen Qiao En), The secret shipping route (Yuan Hong as a captain) and many more. It’s definitely the “it” theme this year without a doubt.

    • There are a lot. There’s also a number of wartime dramas like Hu Ge’s 49 days and Wallace Chung’s Bodyguards&Assassins.

      But then, I feel like there’s always an overabundance of Republican dramas… In 2013 there was X-agent, Like Fireworks Like Butterfly, Wuthering Heights, Love in the Spring, Beauty at the Crossfires, a drama with Yan Kuan and Li Nian, the drama with Lou Yixiao just to name a few.
