XDRAMAsX’s 2018 Drama Review

I didn’t actually watch Secret of the Three Kingdoms, but Wan Qian‘s Fu Shou is so pretty I just had to include her in my post.

It’s that time of year again, when I collect all my thoughts on the dramas I watched over the past year. I vowed to watch many of the shows in the discarded list because they starred my favourites, conveniently forgetting that good actors cannot always elevate the quality of a drama.

On the other hand, dramas that weren’t initially on my radar ended up becoming the shows I was most invested in, probably because I had zero expectations going in. What are your thoughts on this year’s drama offerings?

Collection of Cfensi’s past reviews can be found here.

**Spoilers ahead, do proceed with caution.

Fighter of the Destiny releases teaser

It’s nice to see productions in all different genres coming through the works as opposed to every other drama being a palace period or any other of the genres that have been popular lately.

Fighter of the Destiny 择天记 has released more stills and a teaser.  Starring Lu HanGulnazarWu QianYao DiZeng ShunxiXu LingyueJu XianhaoZhang JunzhuGao HanyuChen Shu, and Eric Tsang, it seems like as of late, a decent production team is only covering the basics of what it takes to make a successful drama as other production teams ramp up on these regards.  Dramas with productions that may have once commanded hoards of fans and dominated ratings are finding it harder to do so with other productions in the line-up.
