Sorry for being so out of it these past weeks 😦 I’ll try to update as much as possible. Everyone else seems quite busy. Sorry for any readers checking this site daily. 

Drama News

After the filming was finished for Story of Minglan, Zhao Liying is on a break~ But her studio did post a poster announcing the possible air date to be around summer 🙂 Hopefully everything goes smoothly and we can see the various actors (Feng Shao Feng, Zhu Yi Long, etc.) in the small screen.Been meaning to update on this drama, Records of the Southern Mist House starring Liu Yi Fei and Jing Boran. Gorgeous setting. I’ve been collecting all their stills and bts photos. So far this drama is raising my anticipation ☺️ Jing Boran is killing it in these outfits! The King of Blaze starring Jing Tian and Chen Bolin released some more stills for their ancient version.

I had this video for a long time in my download folder lol. It’s Youku’s 2018 Fall and Winter drama showcase where they basically show a bunch of trailers from dramas . Spot the dramas  😀

Two stills from Ten Years Late starring Shawn Dou and Gulinazha. This was one of the many dramas releasing stills or posters on May 20th which sounds like saying “I Love You” and is often the day of romance 🙂

Here is another drama releasing two stills on May 20th as well. It’s Sweet Dreams starring Deng Lun and Dilireba Dilmurat.

The crew and Liu Haoran celebrated 200 days of filming for Novoland: Eagle Flag!

This was two weeks or so, but I’m excited for this! There will be a spy thriller movie called “355” starring Fan Bing Bing, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain, and Lupita Nyong’o that brings you a story about secret agents from five countries. Wooooo I can’t wait to see this movie~ The movie will be directed by Simon Kinberg (X-Men franchise, Deadpool, Logan, etc.)

Meteor Garden 2018 Remake starring Shen Yue, Dylan Wang, Darren Chen, Caesar Wu, and Connor Leong released official stills and the trailer~

Dramapotatoe translated the trailer so please check it out at the original twitter link!

Here’s a bunch of teasers/trails from iQiYi that will be premiering (hopefully) in 2018!

Movie News

Remember Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings from previous entertainment updates? I first updated it with the announcement of the film to when they were filming it with the cast and later a conference was held with the director. It’s the second film of the young detective played by Mark Zhao and features an array of cast that includes Lin Geng Xin, Sandra Ma, Feng Shao Feng, and Carina Lau. It will be in theaters on July 27, 2018.

This post celebrity spotlight goes to Shen Yue! Her photoshoot with Fashionable magazine creates spring, romantic vibes~

Here’s a more summery theme photoshoot of Shen Yue for Cosmopolitan China~

  1. Whoops I posted on the previous post regarding Meteor Garden and here it is, please ignore that comment. Thanks so much for the updates! There’s alot of good dramas coming up, I really wanna see Legend of Ming Lan but at the same time I don’t want them to rush it either. Alot of people were speculating that Ming Lan might be going head to head with Fuyao, but I think as drama watchers we just wanna see a good production if anything.

    I finally finished reading Ming Lan so this hypes me up even more haha

    Totally forgot about Southern Mist, but hot damn Jing Boran is looking fine! Ni Ni is such a lucky lady, well he is too for having such a gorgeous girlfriend too. Speaking of which, I wonder if there’s any news on Ni NI’s drama with Chen Kun? That’s another one I’m super excited to see and has been in production for awhile I think.

    The dubbing for Meteor Garden really put me off, but I feel it’s more targeted at the new generation of kids. It seems super modernized and slick, I feel it doesn’t have the sincerity of the past version but a remake is a remake. Gotta see it with fresh eyes to appreciate it individually.

    1. I feel for Minglan, they will delay it a bit, but yes the two dramas might be airing at the same time with different premiere time.
      Rise of the Phoenix is done with filming and right now it’s waiting to see if any place is picking it up. At the earliest, we might see the drama at the end of 2018 or early 2019.
      Yes, sincerity was what was missing. It looks like a lot of the flashy modern dramas I’ve seen lol. But I’ll stay hopeful.


      1. Ahh different premier times would be good. I can totally see the older audience getting more into Ming Lan than Fuyao, plus the episode list is so damn long lol

        Thanks for letting me know, if Rise of the Phoenix can be aired later it means more time to enjoy all the dramas than at once haha

  2. this might be off-topic question but did Heavy Sweetness aired?There is no trace of it even though it supposed to have started April 16 , right? lol I couldn’t even find any mention of airing date on the other sources . Could it be they postponed drama?


  3. Thank you for updating.

    The dubbing on the Meteor Garden trailer is bad. I thought Chinese youth dramas didn’t really do that anymore? I also don’t like how the trailer seems to be more from the point of view of the guys than the heroine. In the good adaptations (Hana Yori Dango and Meteor Shower) Makino/Shen Cai is a strong and central to the story, her struggles and the way her relationship with the F4 and other chracters develops. This trailer seemed to sideline her as just the object of affection.


    1. Sometimes the Chinese dramas will do it, sometimes they don’t do dubbing. It depends on budget. Believe this drama when airing on online platform won’t have dubbing (not too sure on this).
      Yeah I heard similar criticisms on this trailer depicting it from the guys view. I hope that release another trailer or some other promos with Shen Cai’s perspective.


  4. Yay! Thanks for the update. =D
    Meteor garden….actually…doesn’t look bad… hahah I honestly didn’t know what to expect for the drama. Shen Yue is really gaining a lot of popularity! =D

  5. So far, I think Jing Boran’s character seems like the most stylish male protagonist in Republic dramas *swoon*. I’m not really anticipating King of Blaze but I ship the second couple so much.
