iQiyi has released a handful of trailers and posters for its upcoming dramas. The successful Light On programme is back for a second round, and the streaming platform has also lumped its romance dramas into a Sweet On schedule, which is set to begin this month. Which dramas are you looking forward to most?
First up is Luoyang, and the trailer is giving me huge The Longest Day in Chang’an vibes. Huang Xuan‘s character seems pretty similar to Lei Jiayin’s, in that they’re both former government officials who are tasked with solving intriguing mysteries.
Daybreaker 暗夜行者 stars Li Yifeng as Chen Mo, a former undercover agent who fakes his death after finding out someone was trying to kill him. He takes on a brand new identity, and returns to the drug cartel to find out the truth. Costars include Song Yi and Stephen Fung.
Most of iQiyi’s Light On series have been pretty solid, so I’m hoping the trend continues this year. The 24 episode drama is directed by Cheng Hao (Ping Pong) and began filming today.
