One thought on “Air date update, December 2018

  1. Mmmm very few I’m actually anticipating:

    Original Sin (definitely top of the list. I mean, Zhai Tian Lin + Yin Zheng + cop-plot + 24 eps = YAS)

    Story of Minglan (mostly Zhu Yi Long + Daylight Ent = also yas… –> used to anticipate bc of Zhao Li Ying, but lately, ZYL is definitely my jam)

    Longest Day in Chang-An (looks like a pretty good setup with lots of thought put into the visuals/props/representation-of-Tang –> but also how many freaking eps do they need for a 24 hr plot in Chang-An???)

    Ugly Queen (have no idea who anyone is, but googled it and intrigued by female general –> hopefully they don’t follow the trend of making the independent powerful female a damsel in distress, in disguise…)

    Hear the Bells Ring on Shanghai Bund (kinda…meh not my period…but Yu HaoMing is a good actor and I have a small bias for Wu Jin Yan as an idol…idk I don’t have much to say about her acting…)
