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.
Over the past week, Mango TV, Tencent and iQiyi have released teasers and promos for select dramas that will probably air next year (follow the links for more information). Which ones are you looking forward to most?
Xianxia romance Love and Redemption stars Huanrui’s latest star Cheng Yi as a cursed disciple who keeps on getting tortured (I’ve lost count of how many times he’s coughed up blood in all the trailers) and Yuan Bingyan as an ordinary disciple who doesn’t understand the concept of love.
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.
