Love Won't Wait Airs May 27
Love Won't Wait 如果爱 starring Cecilia Cheung, Vanness Wu and Bie Thassapak Hsu makes its big premiere tonight at 8:40p.m.on Hunan TV along with a simultaneous broadcast on streaming sites Mango TV, Tencent, iQiYi and Youku. I wanted to add some commentary upon watching the trailer but it seems that it needs no further introduction. What we get is a whole spectrum of emotions showing the need for tears and more tears. 
Ju Jiang new drama Wallace Huo Yang Mi
There are some pairings that draw instant hype. This is one that caught my attention from the moment I read about it the other day, and it turned out to be true! Yang Mi (Legend of Fuyao) and Wallace Huo (Ruyi's Royal Love in the Palace) have just started filming for their latest drama Ju Jiang 巨匠 (translates to The Great Craftsman) which marks their third time working together. 
Love Happening Chinese Drama







Love Happening 我爱你,这是最好的安排 is a new youth idol drama about romance. We've already mentioned that Vin Zhang is not playing the hotelier in this drama but a lowly hotel employee, Xia Yuxing (probably!) while Zheng He Hui Zi will be playing Ma Keai, the lady who happens to inherit a hotel after the three founders found themselves dead, dying or without an heir. 

Medical Examiner Dr. Qin 2 Li Dong Qin
New photos have been released for Medical Examiner Dr Qin 2 法医秦明2清道夫 and it definitely looks like it will be just as gripping as the first one. The original trio consisted of three leads, Zhang Ruo Yun (The Fated General), Li Xian (Only Side By Side With You) and Jiao Jun Yan (Tong Tian Detective Dee) started a sleeper hit that won best web drama in the 2016 Sohu Fashion Award, so our new cast will definitely need to up the ante.
First Impressions Sketch
Disturbing illustrations become realities in this action-packed drama about a man who wants to put a killer behind bars, and another who seeks revenge. 
Deep in the Realm of Conscience Poster
Deep in the Realm of Conscience 宫心计2深宫计 which is the sequel to the 2009 TVB drama Beyond the Realm of Conscience started airing on May 21st in Hong Kong. It was also supposed to air in Mainland China via Tencent, but the clock ticked past the scheduled airtime at 8pm and there was still no news whatsoever. 
Xu Jiao Ice Fantasy
There are many reasons to love period dramas, one of which has to be the costumes and I love seeing the style brought to today. For her 3000th weibo post, Xu Jiao brings her youthful modernity into traditional Chinese clothing as she wears a dainty hanfu in pink and pastels. The young actress who most recently starred in Beyond Light Years has played the schoolgirl many times, but did you know that she played a boy on her very first acting gig? 

Xu Jiao CJ7
She played Stephen Chow's son in the 2008 blockbuster movie CJ7. I only realized now and I saw that movie too. 
Listening Snow Tower Qin Jun Jie
Listening Snow Tower 听雪楼 is an upcoming drama adapted from a novel of the same name by Cang Yue 沧月 that was published in 2007. Filming is more than halfway through which seems as good a time as any for the show to finally drop its first stills. Qin Junjie (Peace in Palace, Peace in Chang An) plays Xiao Yi Qing, the Lord of the Listening Snow Tower who is strong in martial arts despite his sickly stature. Yuan Bingyan (The Mystic Nine) plays Su Jing Rong who is the Blood Demon's daughter. 

Flying Tiger Bosco Wong, Michael Miu, Ron Ng
With the overabundance of dramas these days, it's hard to say for sure whether a drama will be a hit or a miss, regardless of how high profile it appears to be. Flying Tiger 飞虎之潜行极战 is a cop drama that had a lot riding on the star power of its Hong Kong cast. It managed to exceed expectations to the extent that a sequel is in consideration. The cast has expressed interest to take part in a sequel, should there really be one, but it looks like another kind of collaboration may come first. 
Ma Tianyu father passed away
On May 24, Ma Tianyu suddenly wrote on weibo that his fate with his parents have ended before deleting the post almost immediately. His studio later released a statement to reveal that Ma Tianyu's father passed away last week due to illness. 
Jet Li doing fine, addresses health concerns
Jet Li recently became the cause of public concern after a shocking picture of the legendary action star visiting a temple started going around the internet. Although he is just 55 years old, many articles have commented that he looks unrecognizable, frail and well beyond his actual age. The actor's struggles with hyperthyroidism and spinal problems were widely-reported as well. 
L.O.R.D. Yin Chen Duke Seven
Yin Chen (Duke Seven)
With the sequel to the movie L.O.R.D. coming in July, not many know of an iQiYi drama based on the same Guo Jingming 郭敬明 novel that may also be due for a summer release, though it's probably also owed to everything being very hush hush about the production. 
First Impressions The Undateables
A romantic comedy full of laugh out loud moments, The Undateables is a love story about two unlikely people and the love industry itself.
Love Won't Wait Presscon
Love Won't Wait 如果, 爱 which completed filming last year is airing in three days. On May 22, the cast led by Cecilia Cheung, Vanness Wu and Bie Thassapak Hsu attended the press conference held in Beijing to promote its upcoming premiere on May 27. The drama will be taking over Here to Heart's slot on Hunan TV, though it looks like they're really just switching out an angsty melo for an even bigger tearjerker. 
Candle in the Tomb 3: The Wrath of Time
Candle in the Tomb: The Wrath of Time 鬼吹灯之怒晴湘西 which started filming inconspicuously two months ago finally confirms its main trio. Compared to the rumors which initially had Wu Chun attached to the project, I really have no complaints towards having Vengo Gao in the cast instead. Besides, getting two out of three castings right is not half bad at all. 

First Impressions Korean Drama About Time
A fantasy romance with unexpected surprises, About Time revolves around a person's ticking time clock and the moments we have left. 
Demon Catcher June 4, 2018 premiere
Demon Catcher Zhong Kui (Jun 4 iQiYi)
A story revolving around an unlikely group of friends who gather together on a journey to vanquish evil. They are comprised of a half-god and half-demon, a demon hunter and the sacred maiden of the demon tribe. Starring Yang Xuwen and Yang Rong.

Moonshine and Valentine Episode 4 Recap


The episode again starts with a scene of He Lan Jing (Ah Xi) and Huiyan from when they met. I’m really liking how we get to start each episode seeing the beginnings of their story and relationship. In what is a really cute scene, Ah Xi is having Huiyan cover her eyes to guess how many fingers he is holding up. He can’t see that Huiyan is not covering her eyes at all, but just throwing out random answers. As Ah Xi holds up one finger, Huiyan guesses, “Ten.” As he holds up three fingers, Huiyan guesses, “One hundred”. Lol. She can barely keep herself from laughing.
