… 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 Lin, Yuan Hong, Kenny Kwan, Mao Zijun, Li Jiahang, Wang Yuanke, Zong Fengyan, Yu Bo, Dai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, those who have been watching it, what are your thoughts so far?.
I like how balanced everything looks. There’s enough color and decorating to keep me interested but not to the point where I feel that I am watching a peacock mating ritual… also the patterns used are mostly characteristic for the era based on what I can see…
Realm of Love: Long Ballad 秀丽江山 长歌行 is preparing to air July 21st. Starring Ruby Lin, Yuan Hong, Kenny Kwan, Mao Zijun, Li Jiahang, Wang Yuanke, Zong Fengyan, Yu Bo, Dai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, those who have been waiting on this one don’t have much longer to wait.
Realm of Love: Long Ballad 秀丽江山 长歌行 has changed their air date to July 21st from July 26th. Starring Ruby Lin, Yuan Hong, Kenny Kwan, Mao Zijun, Li Jiahang, Wang Yuanke, Zong Fengyan, Yu Bo, Dai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, it’s nice to see a drama changing to an earlier release date after being accustomed to dramas being pushed back… wonder if it has anything to do with catching the media storm about Ruby Lin and Wallace Huo… anyhoo… new trailer below.
There’s a date on it!! It’s official!! No takie-backies!!
Realm of Love: Long Ballad 秀丽江山 长歌行 is set to air on July 26th. Starring Ruby Lin, Yuan Hong, Kenny Kwan, Mao Zijun, Li Jiahang, Wang Yuanke, Zong Fengyan, Yu Bo, Dai Junzhu, and Wang Yu, with how long it has taken for this to air, I am pretty sure I have already seen some of the props and costumes for this production in other dramas that have already aired…
A belated Happy Chinese New Year to all of our beloved Cfensi readers! Who else stuffed themselves silly with delicious food? It looks like Ruby Lin did too, although I hope y’all had better food than pizza. (I mean, no offense to pizza, which I love, but it just can’t compare with good Chinese food.)
Happy Lunar New Year! For some of us, it’s not yet February 19, but I guess that just means we’ll get an extended day of celebration. C: Treat yourself to one of Jimmy Lin‘s red envelopes featuring his son, Kimi~
Ruby has a nicer looking pom pom, but you shouldn’t get so depressed about it, at least you don’t have to hold yours???
Ruby Lin comes back for another horror film, this time The House That Never Dies. She’s reunited by one of her co-actresses from Bloodstained Shoes, Monica Mok; also joining the cast are Tony Yang (from the upcoming Lady and Liar) and Francis Ng, In the early Republican era, Lu Dieyu (Ruby Lin) is a star courtesan, who falls in love with the third young master of the Huo family. She marries into the clan, but on the night of the wedding, the groom metamorphoses into the recently deceased second young master. Dieyu becomes with child soon afterwards, and with rumors of a ghost fetus spreading, the household becomes uneasy; before long, the family falls to ruin, leaving behind a shadowing mansion.
A hundred years passed and Xu Ruojing discovered the new avatar, the reincarnation of Dieyu, enters the old house. She begins to find the story of the past, and her presence awakens the resentment of formerly dormant ghosts…
What better way to start off this week’s Weibo Wednesday round-up than with pretty Hu Ge? An unofficial trailer for his upcoming drama Nirvana in Fire (琅琊榜) was leaked yesterday, and although the video doesn’t really reveal much (people flouncing! people walking! people darting around with swords!), at least it gives us some nice shots of Hu Ge.
Tomorrow Ah Su [Hu Ge’s character] is going to get sorted out by Lin Chen. Today, I hurriedly went out to get some fresh air. Medicine you don’t necessarily have to eat, but snow you cannot not appreciate.
