Realm of Love: Long Ballad – thoughts?

… IMO, although the characters aren’t terribly original and some of the scenes are a bit of an eye-roll, I find that the majority of the plot follows a logical progression.  Characters have their flaws but at least there are times where they pay a logical price for their flaws as opposed to some dramas in the past where this didn’t happen and seemed to detract form the story for me.

Realm of Love: Long Ballad 秀丽江山 长歌行 has been airing for quite some time. Starring Ruby LinYuan HongKenny Kwan, Mao ZijunLi JiahangWang YuankeZong FengyanYu BoDai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, those who have been watching it, what are your thoughts so far?.

Kenny Kwan shows off black for The Legend of Flying Daggers

The designer has clearly taken the concept of “random lengths of flowing cloth” idea too far on this costume…

Filming has started for The Legend of Flying Daggers, starring Hawick LauYang Rong, Wu YingjieHuang MingKenny Kwan, and Yuan Bingyan.  I yearn for the day when “wuxia” won’t automatically mean a free ticket for designers to call random lengths of drapery clothing…
