Could Guo Jingming finally have a decent TV adaptation of his novels? The trailer so far seems lovely, and casting of Zheng Shuang, Chen Xuedong, Bai Jingting, Xia Ziting and Chai Biyun is perfect.
Rush to the Dead Summer follows the main lead Lu Xiaosi (Chen Xuedong). Xiaosi is an introverted but talented illustrator who began publishing under a pseudonym in high school. He finally made it big in college and started his own publishing company, only to be caught in accusations of plagiarism. As if afraid you can’t figure out that this story is about him, Guo Jingming made the main lead’s name (小司) literally being a homophone of his own pseudonym (小四).
This is the second time Chen Xuedong will play Guo Jingming, the last time being when he played Zhou Chongguang, an annoying writer who would never turn in his writings in time, in Tiny Times 1/2/3/4. We get it, guys, you guys are soulmates.
Being a Guo Jingming story, there are also a lot of love triangles. Xiaosi is joined by the extroverted and sunny bff who will literally die for him Lu Zhihang (Bai Jingting), the perfect(ly dull) female lead Lixia (Zheng Shuang) who he dates, the spunky Yujian (Xia Ziting) with dreams of being a rockstar and a love triangle of her own , and the vain Cheng Qiqi (Chai Biyun) who also likes Xiaosi.
Can someone actually explain to me what Love O2O means?
The upcoming college romance drama Love O2O 微微一笑很倾城 starring Yang Yang (Whirlwind Girl) and Zheng Shuang(The Three Heroes and Five Gallants) has released an abundance of stills and trailers ahead of its premiere tonight (August 22nd).
Both the film (Jing Boran, Angelababy) and the TV (Zheng Shuang, Yang Yang) versions of Love 020 微微一笑很倾城 just dropped trailers. The story tells of two people meeting and falling in love through a role-playing video game.
… and another drama joins the sudden diarrhea of drama releases… and of course they release the better-looking stills now so I have to give this a chance… RIP sleep…
The Three Heroes and Five Gallants is set going to air tomorrow, February 17th. Starring Chen Xiao, Yan Yikuan, Zheng Shuang, Liang Guanhua, Liu Dekai, Xie Zhu, Ma Shuliang, and Zhang Zhixi, this is weird for me since I’m usually complaining about not having anything to watch or click through. Now there’s simply too much!
… and I still long for this degree of production quality to be applied to other dynasties….
Chronicle of Life, starring Hawick Lau, Zheng Shuang, Zhang Binbin, Michelle Yim, Zhang Zhixi, Zhang Xiaochen, Wang Ruoxin, and Cheng Yanqiu, will be releasing soon so here are the stills and promotional goodies being released. This includes the much missed spoiler-trailer below so you have been warned.
Just joining the sudden flood of everything and their mother being released…
The Three Heroes and Five Gallants is set to air on February 17th. Starring Chen Xiao, Yan Yikuan, Zheng Shuang, Liang Guanhua, Liu Dekai, Xie Zhu, Ma Shuliang, and Zhang Zhixi, the story follows the novel of the same name and is set during the Northern Song dynasty.
I have heard that there have been some restrictions on the number of channels that a drama is allowed to air on at the same time now in China which might explain the sudden release flood. Anybody able to confirm?
Chronicle of Life, starring Hawick Lau, Zheng Shuang, Zhang Binbin, Michelle Yim, Zhang Zhixi, Zhang Xiaochen, Wang Ruoxin, and Cheng Yanqiu, is aiming for a release date on February 1st. That means that we should be hit by a wave of promotional goodies soon.
See, Yu Zheng… Pink doesn’t HAVE to look overused and terrible!!
Chronicle of Life, starring Hawick Lau, Zheng Shuang, Zhang Binbin, Michelle Yim, Zhang Zhixi, Zhang Xiaochen, Wang Ruoxin, and Cheng Yanqiu, has released more stills. The costumes and set look so nice so please go light on the angst unless there’s a due need for it… pretty please… *puppy eyes*
