Monster Killer 2, Negotiator and The King's Woman to premiere on the same day

Monster Killer 2 Elvis Han
How awesome is it that all these highly-anticipated sequels are going to premiere on Monday, August 14? The timing really can't be better because we would have had some time to recover from the trauma that came with the ending of Princess Agents. I can't promise blue skies and sunshine this time, but I definitely think there's promise or there wouldn't be a sequel in the first place.

Monster Killer premiered as a web series on July 6, 2015 with no big names, which is why I'm grateful that it warranted Monster Killer 2 to tell the next pages of another intriguing chapter in the life of Wuxin. Elvis Han and Sabrina Chen Yao reprise their roles as enemies although Chen Yao will also be double hatting as a man who ends up becoming friends with the good guys. Really though, I'm looking forward to more monsters, more mystery and more abs (it is Elvis Han after all).

Negotiator c-drama Yang Mi ZTao


Les Interpretes premiered on May 24, 2016. It's the only one out of the three that I haven't seen before, not that it matters because Negotiator starts fresh with a new concept, new storyline and new characters. A premise revolving around business savvy professionals sounds a little cut and dry, but I really don't need much convincing to watch a show headlined by Yang Mi and it'll be interesting to see her chemistry with Huang Zitao

Update: Ugh... I'm sorry to say this but I'm hearing whispers of Negotiator being postponed to be replaced by Love Actually starring Joe Chen and Tong Da Wei.

The King's Woman Dilraba Dilmurat




Legend of Qin first premiered on November 29, 2015 and even though it didn't spell a big hit then, it had all the trappings of a fantasy wuxia that was easy to like (ha, I loved it). The King's Woman is actually a prequel instead of a sequel and it seems to be going for a different look altogether - very palace-y and historical. Dilraba Dilmurat and Vin Zhang headline as the enemies turned lovers in a complicated story from the perspective of a woman. More stills below.

  2. I want to watch The King's Woman. I want at least one good costume CDrama this year as so many others so far this year have been disappointing.

    I wonder why The Negotiator was postponed?

    1. Ooh I hear you.. but I always have Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms to go back to.

      I'm not sure why it was postponed, but I guess it's good in a way coz I planned to watch all three at first, which seems ambitious.

  3. I would really have loved it if Jin Chen came back for Monster Killer 2 (as a reincarnated version of herself....anything! To have the whole team back together again (yes, even including Yue QiLuo, our villain), would've been the stuff of dreams because I enjoyed the original cast to bits.
