  1. Waiting anxiously for story of minglan but it’s not licensed for my region on viki. Can anyone tell where to watch it apart from viki with eng subtitles??? please share link of its theme song as well. Thanks in advance. Merry Christmas to all admins as well as to the readers…


  2. Congrats to ShiShi and Nicky!!! It is just sad that someone else outed their news. Their privacy should be respected.

    I can’t wait to see MingLan. This last trailer look even better.
    It is a testament on how popular Ashes of Love was this year that the whole cast got a huge surge in popularity. And now Luo Yunxi will finally get a main lead role after so many years.

      1. yeah, I think they took it down to 72 which is pretty long but better. I really hope it doesnt drag and it turns out to be a good drama since I have high hopes for it.
