What is the name of the novel for this drama? Is it in english translation that I can read anywhere?! Much appreciated!
It’s based on Feiwosicun’s Eastern Palace 东宫, but there’s no complete translations of the novel online.
I’m not sure how i feel about this cast XD i just hope they are able to portray the characters correctly and doesnt disappoint the novel.
🤞🤞 eng subs
oh the female lead is adorable! Really liking the cast so far, hope they do well :)
I don’t know any the actors yet but they look just like dolls! What stunned me so much is her red dress is so amazingly beautiful.
I don’t know either of the two leads (although my first imprssion is the male lead is less-goodlooking than Wei Qianxiang), but te trailer is so pretty and well-produced!
I didn’t expect the characters to look like this but will watch it anyways since the novel wasn’t too bad of a read. I’m not a Stepmom fan either but will give this drama version a chance to impress me lol.
I’m surprised that the episode length is relatively short (even dramas with modern plotlines are usually 40+ episodes). I’ve read the detailed summary and while a lot things happen in the story, I didn’t find it that long so maybe this explains the episode count. Or probably it’s more about hype because Heavy Sweetness and Ash-like Frost is pretty much a short story but it has sixty episodes (!!!) according to mydramalist.com.
It’s currently unknown how many episodes the drama will have exactly – synopses submitted to SARFT have put the episode count anywhere between 30 and 60 episodes. :p
I really appreciate when a drama is around 30 episodes and not dragged up till 50 ones. The trailer shows a potentially intriguing drama, I’ll keep on eye on it
I also prefer short episodes drama. Nothing worst than having to drop a series or watching a drag out one.
