I’m usually not a rom-com person, but the premise for iQiyi rom-com Be My Princess has definitely caught my attention. Xu Zhengxi (The Autumn Ballad) plays an aloof actor who literally embodies his character after getting into a car accident. Zhou Jieqiong(Legend of Fei) stars as his bewildered costar, who must play along and help him recover.
Directed by Huang Tianren (Here To Heart, Someday orOne Day), the drama releases episodes weekly on iQiyi and Mango TV.
iQiyi has released a handful of trailers and posters for its upcoming dramas. The successful Light On programme is back for a second round, and the streaming platform has also lumped its romance dramas into a Sweet On schedule, which is set to begin this month. Which dramas are you looking forward to most?
First up is Luoyang, and the trailer is giving me huge The Longest Day in Chang’an vibes. Huang Xuan‘s character seems pretty similar to Lei Jiayin’s, in that they’re both former government officials who are tasked with solving intriguing mysteries.
Legend of Fei depicts the growth of a female warrior (Zhao Liying) in a time when the influence and power of the pugilist world (wulin) is on decline. Wang Yibo costars as her love interest and the Prince of Duan. [Extended]
Zhao Liying made her disappointment with the script very obvious on Weibo during filming, and now I’m really curious about the final product. Members can stream the first 8 episodes at 9am tomorrow (CN time) and then watch 2 episodes every Mon-Thurs.
Legend of Fei has released another teaser that gives us more of an insight into the relationship between the leads, played by Zhao Liying and Wang Yibo. Fingers crossed the drama is at least half as good as the original novel.
Wuxia drama Legend of Fei has released stills and a short preview of leads Zhao Liying and Wang Yibo in action. I loved the original novel, so am keeping an open mind about the adaption. See below for more character introductions (spoilers ahead) and here for extended synopsis.
Miss Truth 大唐女法医 is based on Xiutang’s novel of the same name, and stars idol Zhou Jieqiong (Kyulkyung of I.O.I) as Ran Yan, an astute medical examiner who embarks on a journey to find her mother’s killer and solves several murder cases along the way.
