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.
Forever and Ever‘s长安如故 ancient lifetime revolves around the love story of a young general (Ren Jialun) and his mute maidservant (Bai Lu). They never managed to confess their feelings to each other then, though a happy ending is in store for them in the modern lifetime. [Extended]
Ren Jialun and Bai Lu‘s romance drama Forever and Ever has wrapped up filming for the modern lifetime and released stills of the cast. The crew will be moving to Hengdian to film the leads’ past lifetime of young general × mute girl. [Extended]
Forever and Ever 一生一世 follows their modern lifetime, and stars Bai Lu as Shi Yi, a talented voice actor who still retains memories of her past life. Ren Jialun plays Shi Yi’s future husband Zhousheng Chen, a chemistry professor who is forced to take over a family business unrelated to his career.
