The Princess Weiyoung costars and real-life couple Tang Yan and Luo Jin are in the last stages of filming for The Way We Were, an upcoming Romeo and Juliet-esque romance drama that focuses on the lives of international students in the US.
It’s here! It’s finally here! Tribes and Empires: Storm of Prophecy, also known as the drama with the best trailers ever, is going to premiere tonight at 8pm (CN time) on streaming sites Tencent, iQiyi and Youku.
The entire story is set in Novoland, a fantasy world comprising of mortals (who either live in the prosperous Eastern Land or the nomadic Eight Tribes), dwarves (河洛), the winged people (羽), spirits (魅), titans (夸父) and merfolk (鲛).
The 80 episode drama will revolve around the friendship between a half-spirit half-human prince with a cursed fate (Huang Xuan), a general’s son (Shawn Dou) who is fated to become emperor and the heir of a nomadic tribe (Zhou Yiwei) who wants to rise up against the ruling dynasty.

Breaking out as the adorable Chef Fang from Chef Fang 花间提壶方大厨, Jiang Jia’en 蒋佳恩 (born in 1997) is a budding actress with only two dramas so far. I don’t know much about her and her Weibo is pretty empty, but she was cute in the drama, and her company seems to have done a great job launching their artists ( Hou Minghao and Zeng Shunxi) with well-chosen idol dramas.
In New York 在纽约 is the latest idol romance drama from H&R Century (Huanrui) and MG Studios (Hunan TV), and stars Li Yifeng (Guilty of Mind) and Jiang Shuying (To Be A Better Man) as leads.
Beautiful Reborn Flower 彼岸花 is a modern romance drama starring Lin Yun (L.O.R.D) as a pair of twin sisters who were separated at birth, and Song Weilong (Long For You) plays the male lead who falls in love with both of them.
Operation Mekong 湄公河行动 was a critical and commercial hit when it premiered, and this year director Dante Lam has returned with Operation Red Sea 红海行动, another military action film that focuses on members of the Navy, played by Zhang Yi (Brotherhood of Blades II), Huang Jingyu (Demon Girl), Du Jiang (The Wasted Times) and Hai Qing (Midnight Diner).
Former child actress Zhang Xueying stars in her first major production in Once Given, Never Forgotten你的名字我的姓氏, and she looks amazing.
The teaser is a little misleading, but FYI the male lead (Yang Le) did not adopt her because that would be creepy. Instead, the female lead was adopted by the male lead’s deceased girlfriend’s family after she received her cornea transplant.
The series is mostly a typical love triangle + car crash+ memory loss plot, but it looks cute. Plus, it’s written and produced Yao Yao, who actually did a great job with her previous work 漂洋过海来看你.
Lost in 1949 has followed its first batch of stills with a trailer. We are first introduced to older brother Qiao Zhicai (Chen Kun), a simple man from a humble background who probably becomes involved with the Communists after he decides to help rookie agent Huang Liwen (Wan Qian) find their underground base.
