When an animated Peking Opera character goes through mid-show identity crisis, he escapes to the live-action human world to find himself behind all the masks he wears day after day. The rest of the opera troupe, each one representing a type of Peking opera character, must now enter our world to bring him back.
Dramaholic 戏隐江湖 is a comedy series that mixes 3D animated and live-action characters from the team behind Never Ever Expected (万万没想到). The animation style is gorgeous and unique, so I really hope the script holds up.
The head artist and director, Zou Siwei, is a self-trained artist whose daytime job is an Peking Opera actor for the China National Peking Opera Company, so he’ll no doubt bring a lot of authenticity to the opera parts. Dramaholic stars Chen Xinzhe, Zheng Qiuhong, Zhang Benyu, and Liu Xunzimo. You might recognize the later two as regulars from Never Ever Expected .
