The long-awaited fantasy drama Novoland: Eagle Flag began airing today. As with all last minute announcements, there is a lack of promos, so here’s the last round-up post I did before they pulled the show off air in early June.
The 56 episode drama will release 2 episodes from Tuesday to Thursday this week, and then release 2 episodes every Monday to Thursday beginning next week. Watch the show on Youku and Tencent (both region-blocked) and on a two-day delay on Youtube on this channel.
Posters, stills, photoshoots, and random photos that caught my eye this week.
The 68 episode drama releases two episodes every Monday to Thursday on Zhejiang TV, while Youku/Tencent members get a 6 episode head start.
