Co-production God of War released its first trailer today. It was kind of boring and focused too much on the romance between leads Lin Gengxin and Yoona, but I expect the actual thing to be better given how good their previous work has been.

Zheng Shuang and Zhang Han are back with the second installment of the Queen of SOP series.

The cast of Queen of SOP II also include a second male lead I can’t find any information onDi Jie (狄杰), Jessie Chiang, Kimi Qiao Renliang, and MC turn actor Sun Xiaoxiao.
Some of you may have noticed that while Zhang Han have been busy filming various dramas since Meteor Show, Zheng Shuang have been MIA, occasionally reappearing to support Zhang Han in his dramas. But this year will be different, Zheng Shuang decided (or maybe forced by her company) to venture out on her own – she’s currently filming Mystical Sword (古剑奇谭) with Yang Mi, Li Yifeng, Qiao Zhenyu, and Ma Tianyu. Zheng Shuang have also been cast as the female lead in Jiang Hua Yi Jiu (江淮依旧) alongside Perter Ho. And apparently, there will be a Meteor Show 3 this year.
