Horror thriller series Madhouse 疯人院 is getting mad reviews, but I still have no idea what it’s about or if it’s good or not because I heard it’s scary and I’m a scaredy cat. It stars Liu Chang, Lu Shan, Mei Ting, and Liu Mintao.
The posters and episode titles sounds great though, my favorites are Spontaneous Human Combustion and Walking Specimens. The later sounds like a blockbuster horror film title. Watch it on Youtube here.
The Rise of Phoenixes tells of the heart-wrenching romance between the descendants of two royal families who are destined to become enemies, and the political machinations that are bound to push them further apart.
Starring Chen Kun, Ni Ni, Zhao Lixin, Ni Dahong, Yuan Hong, Wang Ou and Bai Jingting, the 70 episode drama airs daily on Hunan TV beginning tonight. Raw episodes will be uploaded by Croton, and it may also appear on Netflix US.
Chen Kun and Ni Ni’sThe Rise of Phoenixeshas released two TV spots, a bunch of new stills, and also gotten itself a new native title of 天盛长歌 (lit. The Golden Age of Tiansheng). The 70 episode drama is confirmed to air as a daily drama from August 14th.
I am 95% confident the drama has a sad ending in store for us just based on the last line: “I swear upon my father’s grave that regardless of the circumstance I am in, I shall never marry Ning Yi.”
My expectations are pretty low given the fact that sequels never work, though with directors Kong Sheng and Li Xue at the helm, it’s bound to look gorgeous.The 50 episode drama will air two episodes every Monday to Wednesday on Dragon and Beijing TV beginning tonight. English subs will be available on Dramafever and Viki.
