  1. Never thought I’d see Guli Nazha and Yang Shuo together. All of these dramas are making my head spin. Just hope they don’t try to outdo each other in terms of # of episodes.

    1. Hmm went to the drama weibo and seems like Dylan Xiong is the main lead (I have updated the post by the time this comment is posted lol). Seems like Baidu page should update. I went to check Wallace weibo and doesn’t seem like he is related to this drama. Thanks for pointing this out.


  2. Gah! So many dramas to look forward too! >.<
    King's avatar! Song Zuer is going to play Su Mucheng? Can't really imagine it yet. Sad to hear that they will have a season 3 for Chusen…plz let that drama rip already. hahah Can't wait to hear from the casting of pillow book too!

  3. Loved 1st WuXin. Dropped the 2nd one half way through. But the drama did quite well in view counts. Maybe the 3rd one will return to the fun spirit of the 1st.

    I remember reading in spite of the book author’s objections, the production company that licensed Legend of Chusen’s TV rights wanted to make another one before the licensing expires. Didn’t finish part 1. Sort of finished part 2. Not interested in part 3 at the present.

    Looks like 2018 will be another year heavy on web-only dramas for me.

      1. Saw a image on a weibo showing fans of one novel (don’t remember the name) jumped off a tall building while The King’s Avatar novel fans waited in queue. The way Chinese TV/movie production companies manage to ruin good source material boggles the mind.

        Waiting to see how web drama The Guardian (镇魂 by priest) turns out.


          1. Don’t worry. Image is just a cartoon. Sorry. The word “cartoon” didn’t appear in my mind earlier.

            As for The Guardian, priest was involved in the screen adaptation so… Remains to be seen whether “friendship” will be enough to justify Demon King’s motivations. Also kind of a shame the ancient morbidly obese black cat won’t be so fat and will be in human form much more on screen than in the novel.

            BL novel Grandmaster of Demonic Cultivation (魔道祖师) fans also feel like jumping off the ledge after hearing its screen adaptation is under negotiations.


  4. I’m very excited with The King’s Avatar. I love the novel and anime, also Yang Yang! I also want to watch zhao liying’s drama but I’m more excited with her modern drama Our glamorous time than Minglan. I also want to watch My Story for you (Luojin & Zhengshuang)

    1. Zheng Shuang looks pretty lovely for My Story for You and I’ve read the positive reviews on the novel (well it’s the author’s own love story). Haven’t watched the anime for King’s Avatar, heard about the novel, but I’ll wait and see how it’s shaping up. Can’t decide which drama I prefer Our Glamorous Time or Minglan 😅 I’m not a fan for either of her male leads lol.


  5. Really exited for Legend of Fuyao and Heavy sweetness and absolutely unhappy about Sword and Saber. Somebody stop Yumama.

    I wonder what they are going to with 3l3w pillow book and who’s gonna be in main leads.
