Tangren has returned to the Qing-time-travelling genre with Dreaming Back to the Qing Dynasty, which stars Li Landi as a 21st century young girl who is able to time travel back and forth between the two eras. Her main love line will be with the thirteenth prince (Wang Anyu).
The 40 episode drama releases 2 eps every Thursday to Saturday on Tencent. Watch the drama English subbed on Youtube here.
After a long drought in the genre, the team behind Qing Dynasty time-traveling romance Bu Bu Jing Xing returns with an adaptation of one of the pillars of the genre – A Dream Back to the Qing Dynasty梦回大清 by Jinzi. The series stars Li Landi as a modern girl sent back to the reign of Kangxi, where she becomes intertwined with the lives of the various princes as they fight for the throne.
With a track record of supporting talented new directors by producing films like Dying to Survive, A or B, and How Long Will I Love U, Xu Zheng will hopefully continue this trend with his latest production, pet-themed ensemble film Adoring 宠爱 by new director Yang Zi.
Adoring finished filming early in the summer and is set for a Dec. 31, 2019 release date. The film feature six segments – Yu Hewei X Li Landi, Wu Lei X Zhang Zifeng, Yang Zishan X Wallace Chung, William Chan X Zhong Chuxi, Tan Jianci X Kan Qingzi, and poor Guo Qilin all by himself (but with a puppy!) . Can you name all the cast members from the Xu Zheng-judged Season Two of I Am An Actor?
Tangren may be attempting to recreate the classic that was Bubu Jingxin / Scarlet Heart with their upcoming period romance drama Dreaming Back to the Qing Dynasty 梦回大清. Li Landi (My Huckleberry Friends) stars as Mingwei, the heroine who can time travel back and forth between the Qing dynasty and the 21st century.
Never Gone原来你还在这里 has one of best young casts of the year, featuring an all-star cast of Li Landi, Hu Xianxu, Li Gengxi, and Bian Cheng as the young versions of the four leads. Here’s some of their stills. The series is set for a November 6th release date on Youku.
Fun fact: Since filming the drama, the two leads have become classmates in real life as both entered the same class at the Central Drama Academy this fall.
