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.
Hugely popular variety show Sisters Who Make Waves is already back for a second season, and has brought in notable singers and actors Na Ying, Cecilia Cheung, Zhou Bichang & Wang Ou among others as contestants (full list below). The variety show releases 1 episode every Friday at 12pm (CN time), and should be up on Hunan TV’s official Youtube a few hours later.
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.
At the beginning of the month many celebrity workshops will put out a tentative schedule to let fans know what they’re up to. Here’s June’s with what film projects everyone’s attached to. Partly due to a pause in filming due to the coronavirus, June is a pretty busy month with almost all A-lister drama actors filming.
The Untamed is now available with English Subs on Youtube here. The bromance series, which aired without much warning, also finally released some more promotional materials. There’s even a trailer! The two leads will also begin their promotional tour soon, including filming Happy Camp this week. I haven’t had the time to watch it yet, but it’s definitely gaining traction among the slash shipping fandom. How does it measure to your expectations?
I’m not even sure if I want to watch BL drama The Untamed, but I couldn’t say no to posting pictures of pretty people in ancient garb. Xiao Zhan plays a carefree young hero of the Jiang clan who appears 16 years later as the founder of the demonic sect, and controls an army of walking corpses. Wang Yibo (variety show Produce 101) costars as the righteous Lan Wangji, a cultivator of the orthodox sects.
The Untamed 陈情令, a very loose adaption of Moxiang Tongxiu’s BL novel Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation 魔道祖师 has started filming, and cast X-Nine idol Xiao Zhan(Oh! My Emperor) as Wei Wuxian and Wang Yibo(Love Actually) as Lan Wangji.
