Good new to those who are into K-entertainment, China finally lifted the Korean entertainment ban after the U.S. Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) dispute almost a year back. For a little background, the ban not only prevented Korean entertainers from performing in China but also channels from broadcasting any Korean related news and events. Not only that, the government also made it harder for Chinese agencies to sale tour packages to S. Korea. The ban was seen lifted when the first K-pop girl group, Mamamoo, was seen performing at the Sichuan and the show  was broadcasted on TV channels. With the lift, many Chinese channels are now contacting South Korea entertainment industry for a list of dramas and variety shows to import! This means that some dramas with Korean actors that were put on hold might actually see the light of the day now. =D

  1. I think they shouldn’t change Cry me a sad river, this would be a good drama to talk about taboo issues but😩 Sweet dreams sounds lovely😍 Tong Liya looks gorgeous/handsome and I cant wait to see her again ❤ also need Mark and YM & ZLY and Eddie in another/dramas

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Yuck as Chen SIcheng

    Why adapt a story that you are going to completely change@ Ma Tianyu and Zheng Shuang’s drama? they are just going to turn it into a boring romance.

    Zhang Han was the biggest victim of the Korean ban with 4 dramas unable to see the light of day. What was the drama that they aired after they digitally replaced the lead female? People were complaining it was like watching a ghost story.
