The production values for Luoyang look great, and the hero, played by Huang Xuan, is the loyal officer who must prove his innocence while also helping to save the city from attack. Wang Yibo and Song Qian round out our trio of investigators.
The drama will begin streaming on iQiyi on December 1st.
Sword Snow Stride has released stills of its supporting cast. The wuxia drama stars Zhang Ruoyun as a martial arts hero turned general and Li Gengxi as his slave (and maybe love interest?). Costars include Hu Jun, Zhang Tian’ai, Li Chun, Dong Jie and more.
Season 4 of I Am An Actor features Zhang Ziyi, Yu Zheng and director Derek Tsang(Soul Mate, Better Days) as the main judges, and actors Zhang Songwen(The Bad Kids), Hao Lei(Sheep Without A Shepherd) and Li Chengru (who is known for being too honest on Tencent’s acting show) as the coaches. To be honest, I’m more interested in the drama and constructive criticism that will be coming from the judge’s corner. Out of the 33 contestants, I’ll be watching out for the talented Liu Duanduan(Joy of Life) and Li Meng(The Bad Kids).
Modern drama Hope All Is Well With Us stars Liu Tao as a divorcee who reenters the workforce after her marriage with Xiang Qian (YangShuo) breaks down. Jin Chen plays Liu Tao’s new boss, yet finds herself falling in love with her subordinate’s ex-husband. Liu Duanduan plays Xun Zhao’s new love interest.
Aptly titled The Infernal Battlefield, the second instalment of the Brotherhood of Blades film series brings together a talented cast of actors in one of the best wuxia epics in recent years. The story formula hasn’t really changed since the first movie, but it’s worth watching for the cinematography and action choreography alone. Minor spoilers ahead.
