The Destiny of White Snake hosted a media day. I think we will have two couples, not sure since I didn’t see the original. A lot of the cast members were in The Legend of Chusen and a few other dramas together. I am keeping my eye out for this new version. They are filming another version of the same story at the same time, but the cast is pretty unknown and it will probably won’t get any buzz
Main cast: Yang Zi, Allen Ren, Mao Zi Jun, and Li Man
In The Name of the People (人民的名义) with Lu Yi and Zhang Fengyi is making waves in China. It is a contemporary anti-corruption drama and some have called it China’s House of Cards. It’s received rave reviews and became a ratings powerhouse surpassing ratings of 3 while airing on two networks at the same time.
I was not interested in this at first, but I keep seeing good things about it.
The director was asked why he didn’t cast any young and upcoming actor and he said because they were way too expensive and have face paralysis. lol
Anyways, I found this fan-channel who is subbing the episodes themselves. They only have the first episode so far. You can find raw episodes on youtube, but I don’t think any of them are official uploads.
