Here’s a round-up of Lantern Festival poster/stills released for upcoming (and one currently airing) dramas. Happy Lantern Festival!
I already love the trailer for The Longest Day in Chang’an, and despite director Cao Dun’s terrible track record in controlling the pacing of a show, I’m still hoping this will turn out to be a solid mystery drama. Lei Jiayin plays a former officer turned prisoner on death row who is hired by Yi Yangqianxi to find the culprit behind a terror plot within 24 hours. [Extended Synopsis]
The Longest Day in Chang’an 长安十二时辰 is an upcoming Youku web drama based on Ma Boyong’s novel of the same name, and stars Jackson Yi Yangqianxi (Boyhood) and Lei Jiayin (Brotherhood of Blades II) as leads.
