Tang Dynasty Tour 唐砖 has released a beautiful new teaser that doesn’t tell me anything about the story itself. Based off Jieyu2’s novel of the same name, the web drama stars Wang Tianchen (Youth) as Yun Ye, an archaeologist who time travels back to the Tang Dynasty during a sandstorm.
Royal Romance looks to be released sometime this month. Starring Gao Yunxiang, Hou Mengyao, Anita Yuen, etc., anyone looking forward to this drama can probably get a sneak peak through the stills released.
More stills below the cut. (more…)
The Overly Affectionate Country has finally released a trailer after being backed up since filming in 2013 (almost as far back as the dynastic era). This Qing dynasty melodrama stars Gao Yunxiang (Yu Zheng’s Mikey He replacement from Palace: The Lost Daughter), Hou Mengyao, Anita Yuen, etc.. This rendition follows the Shunzhi Emperor, father of Kangxi, as he meets the future Consort Donggo in the countryside. Watch as their love struggles to uphold itself through Han-Manchu tensions and envious harem competitors and eventually gains the recognition Empress Dowager Xiaozhuang (See The Legend of Xiao Zhuang). This happy conclusion happens just in time for the two leads to conveniently be swept away by an epidemic of small pox. The end.
As “Where are we going? Dad” becomes the cutest show of the year, celebrity dads are all expressing interesting in taking their “little monsters” on adventures around China. So far Li Yapeng (daughter with Faye Wong) , Yu Quan‘s Chen Yufan (son with Bai Baihe), Wen Zhang (daughter with Ma Yili), Lu Yi (daughter with Bao Lei),Julian Cheung (son with Anita Yuen), Xu Zheng (daughter with Tao Hong), and Huang Lei (daughter with Sun Li) have all indicated to the press that they would be interested in going future seasons if their kids agree.
Hunan TV plans for two seasons of the show next year. Which pairs would you like to see the most? Which ones are your favorites this season? I’m personally hoping that one of the seasons will be the currently pair and then one season the new pair.
