Hu Bingqing, Han Dongjun’s Twenties Once Again airs today

70-year-old granny (Hu Bingqing) and still-young Han Dongjun play an odd pair of dream chasers in this tv series adaptation of the popular film.

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.

Promo Round-up: The Legend of Dugu

The Legend of Dugu focuses on the Dugu sisters, who each marry into royalty. Our female protagonist is the innocent Dugu Qieluo (Hu Bingqing), who falls in love with and marries the founder of the short-lived Sui Dynasty Yang Jian (Zhang Danfeng).

Her ambitious older sister Dugu Banruo (Ady An) marries the emperor of Northern Zhou (Zou Tingwei), yet has complicated feelings for Yuwen Hu (Xu Zhengxi), the powerful regent of Zhou. Third sister Dugu Mantuo (Li Yixiao) and her husband end up being the biggest winners, as their son Li Yuan would later establish the Tang Dynasty and unify all of China.

I’m looking forward to the Dugu Banruo/Yuwen Hu pairing –  both of them value power above all else, and that’s going to make for the best type of angsty melodrama.
