Awakening in Chang’an (native title change to 与君歌) is a Tang dynasty period romance that stars Cheng Yi(Love and Redemption) as the emperor who is able to solidify his power with the help of a pair of sisters played by Zhang Yuxi and Xuan Lu. [Extended Synopsis]
The drama airs two episodes daily on Hunan TV from Sunday to Thursday, and 1 episode on Fridays and Saturdays.
Dream of Chang’an梦醒长安 doesn’t actually have anything to do with Handsome Siblings, but the character setup of sisters being raised by opposing sides and meeting again as enemies definitely sounds similar. Zhang Yuxi plays younger sister Cheng Ruoyu, while Xuan Lu plays older sister Qiu Yanzhi.
The Imperial Age 山河月明 (prev. 江山纪) is an upcoming historical drama that chronicles the life of Zhu Di (Feng Shaofeng / Cheng Yi), fourth son of the founding emperor (Chen Baoguo) of the Ming Dynasty who later rebels against his nephew Zhu Yunwen (Chen Yuemo) and takes the throne for himself.
Super stylized and slick-looking, Tingxue Tower at least wins the award for the best-looking wuxia series of the year.
Wuxia series Tingxue Tower听雪楼 just released its opening and ending themes by Mickey He. Starring Qin Junjie (Summer’s Desire) and Yuan Bingyan(Ever Night) , the series is a torteous tale of a young woman’s attempt to avenge her parents in a battle that blurs together good and evil. I hope the release of these means that it’ll be released sometimes soon.
Finally, a Ming dynasty drama with expensive-looking costumes!
Feng Shaofeng plays the third emperor of the Ming dynasty in drama The Imperial Age江山纪. He’s joined by Chen Baoguo as his father Zhu Yuanzhang, Ying’er as his empress, Chen Yuemo as his nephew, as well as Zhang Fengyi, Wang Jinsong, and Mickey He. Director Gao Xixi (New Three Kingdoms, The King’s War)’s recent works have been a combination of hits and misses, but at least the costumes look amazing. Continue reading →
Looks like things are starting to get released. The Four, starring Zhang Han, William Chan, Yang Yang, Mao Zijun, Janine Chang, GuiGui, Han Dong, Huang Ming, Mickey He, and even a guest star from Zheng Shuang, has started releasing character teasers for the series set to air on Hunan TV following RoCH 2015. Therefore, I thought I would make a post.
Mickey He and Li Yixiao’sHalf for the People, Half for Beauties has released a trailer. I just thought I would make a note in case anybody is interested in this production on Hua Tuo and a… ermmm… new take on the classic Three Kingdoms tale.
After leaving Yu Zheng, Mickey He tries his hand at bringing legendary Chinese doctor Hua Tuo (seriously… some people worship him) to life.
Starring Mickey He and Li Yixiao in a drama about the turbulent Three Kingdoms that isn’t about the literary novel, Half for the People, Half for Beauties has released a set of character stills.
The drama follows the famous doctor Hua Tuo, a Chinese doctor famous for surgery and anesthesia. In order to help cure the governor’s daughter’s (Ming Xin) eyes, they travel searching for the anaesthetic mafeisan. During his adventures, he meets Guan Yu, Cao Cao, and and becomes embroiled in politics, including a drop by at the famous Battle of Red Cliffs.
Tong Liya looks ready for Easter in her Femina shoot, and Eva Huang Shenyi alternates between an ice queen and a casual summer look. Li Yuchun is dashing as a man for Marie Claire, and Sun Li has a few vampire-looks dressed in black. Meanwhile, Ying’er is cute in a bird print dress, and Bea Hayden poses with a stone bust in white. Mickey He poses around in a busy city, suave in suits. Continue reading →
Disclaimer: Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han are not lovers this time; my shipping goggles just automatically pair them together. (What can you expect when Zhang Han says things like, “If Zheng Shuang ever needed plastic surgery, then there are no beautiful girls“?)
Featuring Zhang Han, Mickey He Chen Weiting, Mao Zijun, Li Qing, Gui Gui, and Zhang Meng, the drama recently wrapped up filming. Look below the cut for loads of stills (a few of them couple stills) and a brief on the Zhang Han-Zheng Shuang interaction (in the drama)
So here, idarklight wanted to know if Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han would have a scene together in upcoming drama The Four. And the answer is… Continue reading →
