The Promise of Chang’an is the Tang Dynasty version of Secret History of Xiaozhuang, and stars Cheng Yi, Zhao Yingzi and Han Dong as the leads. The 61 episode drama has yet to secure an air date. [Extended Synopsis]
Tingxue Towerstars Qin Junjie and Yuan Bingyan as members of the titular cult who lead the fight against the unorthodox sects. If the show follows the books, they’ll also have their own bitter romance, as distrust and betrayal breaks their relationship.
The series releases 2 episodes every Monday to Thursday on Tencent. Members get an 8 episode head start.
Super stylized and slick-looking, Tingxue Tower at least wins the award for the best-looking wuxia series of the year.
Wuxia series Tingxue Tower听雪楼 just released its opening and ending themes by Mickey He. Starring Qin Junjie (Summer’s Desire) and Yuan Bingyan(Ever Night) , the series is a torteous tale of a young woman’s attempt to avenge her parents in a battle that blurs together good and evil. I hope the release of these means that it’ll be released sometimes soon.
The Promise of Chang’an 长安诺 stars Zhao Yingzi(Spy Hunter), Cheng Yi (Noble Aspirations) and Han Dong(Beauties in the Closet) in a love triangle spanning decades, and follows the heroine’s journey from the daughter of a respected tribal leader to the empress dowager of a kingdom.
Production is well underway for Tingxue Tower 听雪楼, the drama adaption of Cang Yue’s popular wuxia novel of the same name. Qin Junjie (Summer’s Desire) plays male protagonist Xiao Yiqing, while Yuan Bingyan(The Mystic Nine) costars as his love interest Shu Jingrong.
What’s better than medieval castles, awesome actors, and Qiong Yao combined? All those, plus dance and music!
Hunan TV’s “flower fields, ancient castle, romantic comedy drama” of the summer, Flowers in Fog 花非花雾非雾, definitely took me by surprise when in episode 2, a number of the main characters, music and dance students in France, broke out in choreographed dance and song.
Given that two of the leads, Zhang Rui and Li Sheng, play music students, they’re also prone to serenades. The best thing is, both actors are actually really good singers and sings all their characters’s songs themselves. Ruby Lin and Joo Jin-mo also find their romance through opera, but I don’t think they sing their own parts.
Watch Zhang Rui and company sing and dance in ep.2。 I’m crossing my fingers that there’ll be more such scenes.
