[First Impression] Princess Silver (白发)

I’ve never really watched any of Zhang Xue Ying’s dramas before nor have I paid any attention to her. But as I’m watching this drama, I’m really wondering why I haven’t been paying any attention to her! She’s a really good actress! Definitely not the best, of course, but compared to the other rising actresses that are in the same age group, she’s definitely more talented. And she’s doing a good job showcasing it in this drama!

Also, the drama is produced by actress Alina Zhang Meng! If you don’t know her, she’s the woman who portrayed Yan Da in Ice Fantasy and will also be starring in Your Home is My Business with Sun Li and Luo Jin. This is her first time as the producer of a drama.

[Review] Princess at Large (医妃难囚)

I know the drama ended a while ago. But I really enjoyed watching this! It’s short and cute. And I liked the characters, especially the female lead. In my opinion, it’s one of those kinds of web dramas that isn’t the best in quality but is a lighthearted and simple drama that you can easily binge on!

[C-Novel Review] Da Mo Yao/Ballad of the Desert (大漠谣) by Tong Hua (桐华)

Da Mo Yao, or Ballad of the Desert, is one of Tong Hua’s most famous works. And even though it was written quite a long time ago (in 2006!), it’s still a favorite among many fans. This novel was also the first C-novel I ever read, and it was also the novel that introduced me to the wonderful world of C-novels.

The novel has also adapted into a drama called Sound of the Desert starring Liu Shi Shi, Eddie Peng, and Hu Ge in 2014. I was not a fan of the drama because of its casting of the male lead. I love Eddie Peng (he’s sooooo handsome and dashing), but my heart was vying for Hu Ge to be the male lead. And I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get over that….

Title: Da Mo Yao / Ballad of the Desert / 大漠谣
Author: Tong Hua / 桐华
Genre: Historical, Romance, Drama
Synopsis: The story takes place during the lively, yet chaotic Han Dynasty. Yu Jin is a young girl who has lived with wolves her whole life. She is not familiar with humans and is capable of communicating with the wolf pack that she has relied on for most of her life. However, she encounters a Han man who becomes her foster father. But after a year of living with him alongside a Xiongnu tribe, he is murdered due to political strife. His death forces Yu Jin to escape the Xiongnu and return to the Han Dynasty as per his wish.

As Yu Jin makes her way to the Han Dynasty, she changes her name to Jin Yu, becomes a successful entrepreneur, befriends important political figures, and gets entangled in a messy but passionate romance with two men.

I shake my sleeve and move to leave but Huo Qu Bing quickly grabs me. I see the other soldiers are staring at me so I quickly stop and act all serious. “Go kick your silly football and stop standing here pushing and pulling.” Huo Qu Bing quickly stepped back. Li Fan pointed at Huo Qu Bing and started guffawing, while Huo Qu Bing just coldly glared at him. Li Gan raised his hands to indicate he was sorry, but he couldn’t stop laughing. Huo Qu Bing sent a flying kick towards him, which Li Gan blocked because he was already anticipating it. He took off laughing.

Gong Xun Aou is done changing and the game begins. Huo Qu Bing turns to give me one last smile before composing himself and running back in the field. This is my first time watching football and I have no clue what the rules are. I don’t know what is good, what is bad, and I could care less who wins. I just stare at Huo Qu Bing.

He’s like the son of the wind. His movements are light and effortless, constantly changing. Sometimes it’s powerful and smooth like a dragon, other times gentle and airy like a crane. He’s like a priceless sword, one quickly movement that no one can block, with a seamless stroke and he has destroyed his opponent yet he is still pristine white.

Under the brilliant sun, he’s so beautiful that it stuns my heart. All around us is the thunderous cheer of the spectators. But everything disappears in my ears. My world is completely silent, and in the silence there is only his form seemingly flying through the wind. In that moment, I know that in my entire life, I will never forget what I have seen today. Even when all my hair turns white and my eyes can no longer see, I will still be able to describe in vivid detail his each and every single movement.
