Happy New Year! There’s plenty of dramas premiering over the next few days, so I thought I’d cover them all in the same post. Which ones are you looking forward to watching the most?
On a side note, I just started watching time-loop drama Reset, and it’s pretty good so far. It’s not the thriller I was expecting, though I do like how it spends time developing the backstories of the other bus passengers as well. Plus, it’s only 15 episodes long – what can go wrong? Try the first episode here.
Mirror: A Tale of Twin Cities 镜:双城 – 2 episodes every Sunday to Wednesday beginning Jan 16th on Youku, Tencent (WeTV)
The fantasy angsty romance drama stars Li Yifeng as King of the Seas who wants to lead his enslaved people to freedom. Chen Yuqi plays the queen of the noble Bai clan, and Zheng Yecheng costars as the crown prince of the ruling kingdom (and the third wheel).
Love Under the Full Moon stars Ju Jingyi as the mysterious heroine who is teleported into Zheng Yecheng‘s world during a full moon, and a bickering romance begins. The 24 episode drama releases 2 episodes every Thursday to Saturday on iQiyi.
Love Under the Full Moon 满月之下请相爱 stars Ju Jingyi(The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion) as the heroine who time travels into the hero’s (Zheng Yecheng) phone during a super moon, and loses her memory in the process.
The 24 episode drama is directed by Li Haishu and Huang Yanwei, who worked together on Yan Yikuan’s Qin Ming: Whisper of the Silent Body.
Mirror: Twin Cities stars Li Yifeng as the prince of the seas who is back for revenge and determined to release his fellow merpeople from slavery. Chen Yuqi costars as his love interest, and Zheng Yecheng plays the prince of ruling kingdom.
Royal Nirvana calls it a special, but it’s actually just the final 12 episodes that were cut when the drama first aired back in 2019. The last 12 episodes will continue to focus on the conflict-laden father-son relationship, and possible rebellion by the crown prince’s cousin. Starring Luo Jin, Li Yitong, Huang Zhizhong and Zheng Yecheng, VIP members will be able to watch all 12 episodes tonight.
The Killing of Three Thousand Crows (Killing All The Crows in the World) stars Zheng Yecheng and Zhao Lusi as the OTP who are destined to sacrifice themselves to save the world. The 30 episode drama releases 2 eps every Thursday and Friday on Mango TV beginning tomorrow. [Extended Synopsis]
In upcoming drama Stealth Walker 玫瑰行者, Lin Peng plays an undercover cop who must recover an inside man (Zheng Yecheng?) inside a narcotics gang after his contact goes into a coma. Li Zifeng joins the cast as a follow cop. The drama has already finished filming.
Given Zheng Yecheng can fight and Lin Peng can fight, and their characters will likely be involved in fighting, fingers crossed this drama is going to have good fighting. All I want is Zheng Yecheng in a drama with a good action director.
