After two dramas in the Republican era, Wuxin: The Monster Killer 无心法师 goes back in time to the Tang dynasty for its next installment. Han Dongjun returns as Monster Killer Wuxin, while Chen Yao returns as a new character Qingluan who Wuxin helps to return home in the turbulent late Tang dynasty. On the way, the two are met with a string of mysteries that all seem to point to Wuxin’s old enemy Bai Liuli. When the two stumble upon the secret to everlasting life (and death), Wuxin must choose between his dream of death and saving Qingluan and her brother.
The scriptwriter will still be Xu Ziyuan of the first two dramas, while the directors will be Xu Huikang and Li Yizhong of the second Wuxin. Filming began on Feb. 15. (more…)
Never Gone 原来你还在这里 released a new set of posters comparing the young and grown-up versions of its four leads – Li Landi and Yang Zishan, Hu Xianxu and Han Dongjun, Li Gengxi and Su Qing, and Bian Cheng and Tan JIanci.
Pretty much everyone but the two adult leads have gotten more well-known since the series was filmed. Lan Yingying, Li Landi, and Tan Jianci have all been applauded for their performances on I’m an Actor / The Birth of an Actor, Hu Xianxu failed on that show but did get his first girlfriend in college, Su Qing was a hit as the antagonist in The Story of Yanxi Palace, Bian Cheng in Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace, while Li Gengxi debuted in her first lead drama My Classmate From Far, Far Away.
Hopefully, the release of the posters means they’ll capitalize on the hype and release the drama soon. Meanwhile, here’s a promo song by Han Dongjun:
The TV adaptation of Miss Granny/20 Once Again 重返20岁, the story of a 70-year-old granny who becomes her 20-year-old self again to find her passion, streams today and stars Hu Bingqing, Han Dongjun, Zhang Yaqin, Gui Leiya, and Qin Han.
It looks like this Youtube channel has brought overseas rights.
The trailer had too much exposition so here’s a fanvid.
Three generations of Chinese actresses.

I was able to recognized 34 of the 42 without looking at the list of names, how many can you identify?
In Secret of the Three Kingdoms, Liu Ping (Ma Tianyu) is a secret prince who was raised outside the palace with Sima Yi (Han Dongjun). His twin brother Liu Xie, the last emperor of the Han Dynasty, summons him back to help save the country as the ambitious warlord Cao Cao (Tse Kwanho) begins to amass even more power.
He is helped by empress Fu Shou (Wan Qian) and Sima Yi, though the latter eventually decides to serve Cao Pi (Tan Jianci) to further his own ambitions. The 54 episode drama will air 2 episodes every Tuesday to Thursday on Tencent beginning tonight.
The first trailer for modern romance drama Never Gone has been released, and stars Yang Zishan (Red Rose) and Han Dongjun (Wuxin: The Monster Killer 2) as a young couple whose sweet romance through high school and university crumbles after getting hit by the harsh realities of life outside the school yard. Talented young actors Li Landi (of cult hit My Huckleberry Friends) and Hu Xianxu (Nirvana in Fire II) play the younger counterparts.
The popularity of stylish openings has exploded ever since Nirvana in Fire and The Disguiser premiered, and Secret of the Three Kingdoms doesn’t want to get left behind: HD Opening.
The second trailer isn’t as interesting as the first, but gives us more insight into the friendship between the two male leads.
