1. The awesome [livejournal.com profile] mookiehyun linked me to this 'action' teaser for Chu-Han Contention. Ahhhhhh! That is what I think of when I think of Chu-Han Contention, not Ming Dao and Joey Chen making romcom goo-goo eyes at each other as the most uncanon couple in history (no, I am not appalled at the Yong Zheng drama, why do you ask?). But then this is from the people who made Three Kingdoms, so they know their way around filming battles. Also, I didn't realize, but Ruby Lin has been cast as Yu Ji (for those unfamiliar with the story - that means she's Peter Ho's OTP and one of two leading ladies). I am...relieved. She's not my ideal Yu Ji (who would probably be Liu Shi Shi) but she's beautiful, age-appropriate and, while not someone who made me obsessed about her characters, never had me dislike a character of hers either. The only thing is...she's tiny. She will need a stepladder if there are to be any non-horizontal PDAs. LOL. Gives a whole new meaning to the Russian phrase of 'pocket wife.' Good thing I adore height differences.

Oh, and have another pic I found (thanks, spcnet!) of Peter Ho as Xiang Yu, BAMF of Ancient Times :P



2. I have no idea why I am anticipating Xuanyuanjian. It's the same type of drama/by the same people as Chinese Paladin 1, which I hated, and Chinese Paladin 3 (where I watched only for Wallace Huo and Tang Yan and their story). But! I cannot resist Hu Ge. Especially playing a baddie. A baddie with an OTP. Mmmmmm. Call me an eternal optimist. Plus, surely, some newbie dude who plays the hero Lin Geng Xin's hero (yes, BuBuJingXin's 14th Prince is the lead, and opposite Liu Shi Shi. 14/RuoXi shippers rejoice!) simply cannot be as annoying as Hu Ge's protagonist in CP3. Too bad LGX does zip for me (though maybe a little here, because he looks a bit like Eddie Peng in this get-up). But aaaaaaaah, Hu Ge! I am Team Bad Guy on this one.

The official MV sure is pretty and hits every one of my kinks:



I am amused that, once again, Hu Ge and Liu Shi Shi share a drama without being an OTP. WTF, Tangren? They have crazy chemistry. I spent a decent chunk of Chinese Paladin 3 wanting their brother-and-sister characters to tear each other's clothes off against the wall.



In conclusion, you can rule my world any time, Bad Guy!

The amazing [livejournal.com profile] ockoala linked me to this clip of an upcoming Four/Ruoxi scene.

I think I might just die from the chemistry and intimacy and comforting...



OMFG I ship those two so ridiculously much.

While we are on topic of LSS, I am very excited about her upcoming drama Xuanyuanjian with Hu Ge (who is, sadly, not playing her love interest). The trailer looks fun:



Plus, Hu Ge!!!

I finally started the 2009 adaptation of The Book and the Sword - I rather like the spare visual look but I must admit that if it wasn't for my reading the novel, I'd be a bit lost. And speaking of the book - I read it ages ago, so my memories are admittedly hazy, but did they change a LOT from the book? Seems so.

Just as with the novel, I find Chen Juliao awfully dull but I love most of the other characters. Awesome guy who fights with a flute (really!) has not appeared as of two eps in, but I am majorly digging this wuxia couple:



They are hot, they are married, and they will end you if you piss them off.

As of two eps, the verdict is I like it but I am not in love (yet). It's fun to see a bunch of familiar faces from other dramas though.

Also, I have finally started watching The Holy Pearl properly - I skimmed it on viki but I loathe streaming so was holding out for doremii subs. I like! Gillian Chung is shockingly unannoying and actually rather likeable, plus the ancient fantasy realm is so v.v. pretty:



I am surprised they managed to conquer anything or to create any mythical artifacts though, seeing that most of their endeavors seem to be spent on headware:



My one complaint is that we are two eps in and we have had a total of a second of our male lead. If you think I am watching THP for its sophisticated take on geopolitical implications of monarchies in flux you are gravely mistaken! I want angsty hotties with horns!



This pic from credits pretty much sums up wuxia/cdrama fantasy appeal right here, at least for moi - really hot emo dudes with deadly skills and long hair who weep like little girls. Woo-hoo!

Last but least, is anyone else excited about upcoming (1) Xuanyuanjian Tianzhi Hen, a period fantasy drama in which Hu Ge and Liu Shi Shi finally get to play an OTP. It's based on a game so it makes me nervous (I wanted to murder Hu Ge's character in CP1 and CP3) but they had psycho chemistry in CP3 even as siblings, are both huge favorites, and there is no way any hero can be as annoying as one in CP3. (2) Phoenix Totem/Love War/War of Desire, Zhang Han's first foray into period dramas, co-starring Bai Bing and involving imperial succession, doomed love, and other good things. I am oddly fond of Zhang Han even if I couldn't get through either Meteor Shower 1 and 2 or Fall In Love if my life depended on it, so I hope he'll be up to par in a period drama. Apparently his costar from MS is in this as well but as a secondary girl (cue gnashing of teeth from teen MS fangirls).

For some reason, I am more excited by upcoming cdramas than twdramas, kdramas, and jdramas combined. So, behind the cut is a list. The only order is alphabetical.

I am sure you have figured out that out of all dramas, period cdramas are my favorite, so it's not surprising that this list contains so many. But a few modern dramas did sneak in.

List with summaries, vids and pics, behind the cut )
