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?

The most popular drama not on Youtube of late, borderline-supernatural borderline-boy love drama Guardian is finally on Youtube here. The drama’s cases are a bit too lacking for me, but the leads are very shippable and I’m just happy that it means wide recognition for Zhu Yilong.

Guardian looks like the sleekest adaptation a BL novel by far.

Guardianis an upcoming supernatural mystery web drama starring Bai Yu (Memory Lost) as the leader of the special investigations unit and Zhu Yilong (Border Town Prodigal) as a coldly logical professor who is later revealed to be the black robe messenger. Though BL (boy love) story lines are banned in drama land, at least the show is still giving us a healthy dose of brotherly love.
The new supernatural show is titled Guardian 镇魂 and based on famous BL (boy love) author Priest’s novel of the same name. Bai Yu (Memory Lost) and Zhu Yilong (Border Town Prodigal) play male leads Zhao Yunlan and Shen Wei respectively, and the story will focus on their bromance friendship that transcends past and present lifetimes.
