Oh My General is the latest drama from Lv Haojiji (Go Princess Go!), and stars Ma Sichun (Soul Mate) as a badass female general of the Song dynasty, who is ordered to marry an immature and frivolous prince, played by Sheng Yilun (Pretty Li Huizhen).
This is Ma Sichun’s first project since her win at the Golden Horse Awards, so I’ll be curious to see if she can still bring out her best without the guidance of an experienced director like Peter Chan. The 60 episode drama will air weekly on Youku beginning tonight.
Dear Chinese producers: I will come up with English titles for you for free if you fire your current ones.
Sheng Yilun is the youngest by a lot in “Shanghai Picked Flowers 十里洋场拾年花
“, a series that focuses on female celebs in the Republican era, except the main lead is male. Sheng Yilun plays a reporter reporting on all the happenings in the Republican Shanghai world of romance, and intrigue. The posters are nice, and the premise and cast seems promising, let’s hope they don’t botch it.
The costumes still look super Japanese (they got a Japanese costume designer) for the Song dynasty, but everything else for Oh My General is on point.

Newly Crowned Golden Horse Best Actress Ma Sichun (Soul Mate) looks great for her first ancient lead role, and her partner Sheng Yilun (Go Princess Go) looks pretty enough for his.
There are plenty of tears in the first teaser for A Life Time Love, the upcoming fantasy romance starring Huang Xiaoming and Song Qian as a pair of star-crossed lovers. Sheng Yilun rounds out the main love triangle as a powerful noble and the female lead’s husband.
Zhang Li and Shen Tai will have a tragic romance of their own, and it seems like Luo Yunxi and Wu Qian may be the only couple that gets their happily ever after.
The drama will air 6 episodes a week beginning June 12th.
A Life Time Love 上古情歌 is loosely based on Tong Hua’s fantasy novel Once Promised, and stars Huang Xiaoming (Xuan Zang), Song Qian (Ice Fantasy), Sheng Yilun(Pretty Li Huizhen) and Zhang Li (Don’t Go Breaking My Heart). The ending theme song is sung by G.E.M.
Author Jing Wuhen hasn’t even completed the source novel, but that isn’t stopping producers from snapping up the drama production rights to Swire God 太古神王. Male lead Sheng Yilun (Pretty Li Huizhen) was confirmed a few days ago, and now Wang Ziwen (Ode to Joy) joins him as the female lead. Continue reading →
