iQiyi recently released trailers and posters for a slew of upcoming shows that will either air exclusively on the site as web dramas and/or on television networks next year. Which shows are you looking forward to most?
Another year of the Weibo awards, another year of marvelling at how great all the actresses look.

Everything about the first trailer for A League of Nobleman(formerly The Society of Four Leaves) screams high production values, and I am really liking Jing Boran‘s look in this drama.Song Weilong costars as the scholar / fellow detective. [Extended]
Period detective drama The Society of Four Leaves 张公案 stars Jing Boran as Lan Jue, an assistant minister from the Ministry of Rites whose ultimate goal is to overturn the ruling against his father. Song Weilong plays Zhang Ping, an impoverished scholar who starts selling his drawings on the street to pay for his education.
Ju Jingyi is cuter than ever in the trailer for her latest drama, In a Class of Her Own 漂亮书生 with Song Weilong. I feel like this might be the drama with her that has the best (aka least) filters? [Extended Synopsis]
Ju Jingyi might have two dramas streaming at the same time with both this and The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion releasing promo materials recently.
Beautiful Reborn Flower stars Song Weilong as the hero who struggles to work out which of the sisters (both played by Lin Yun) he is actually in love with. The synopsis suggests they’re two different people, but the trailer makes me think they’re the same person after all?
Filmed in 2017, the 50 episode drama releases 2 eps every Friday to Monday on iQiyi and Tencent. English subs will be available on their respective apps / Tencent WeTV. It’s also available on Youtube here.
Find Yourself took a pretty main cast in Song Qian x Song Weilong x Wang Yaoqing and stuffed them into a story that mixed the worst parts of a syrupy sweet romantic fantasy with a frustrating and unimaginative love triangle.
Song Qian and Song Weilong start off with immediate chemistry in the first few episodes ofFind Yourself. Even better, all the side-characters are also attractive, varied in personality, and fun. However, as soon as the main couple gets together, Find Yourself loses itself.
All dramas have ceased filming and work is sparse, so I’m going to use this opportunity to highlight the following celebrities for donating to efforts to contain the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. I know there’s a lot of uncertainties about whether donations are being properly used, but that doesn’t diminish the goodwill of the donators. If you chose to donate to anything, though, definitely do your homework and making sure that the money is actually well-spent.
The list is too long so I used google translate, feel free to leave corrections and additions in the comments.
