I thought ‘The Magic Blade’ was gonna bring me back to drama-watching but alas, all the fun slash couldn’t make me care for Fu Hong Xue and I figured it was time to abandon ship when I started laughing at the hero’s angsty times. It did pique my interest in the wuxia genre again and I ended up obsessing over the ‘Listening to Snow Pavilion (听雪楼)’ novel series that I randomly picked up. So, still no dramas for me. (Well, technically I’m following Burn Notice and White Collar but they feel more like old friends that I meet up with for some chillax time every week unlike Asian dramas which can get me invested mind, body and soul!)
But, a couple of upcoming lakorns may just do the trick.
Ann is back with ‘Qi Pao’! I kept my expectations low for this because a) I didn’t fancy the story of ‘Roy Mai’ which belonged to the same fabric series b) the p’ek Smart is not exactly known for his acting skills. The teaser has managed to lift my anticipation for it though and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the actual lakorn will be as suspenseful as the teaser promised.
‘Rang Ngao’ is a remake of Ken/Ann’s first lakorn and tells of the tale of a woman who assumes the identity of her twin to avenge her death. I already know the story (not compelling enough for me to finish the original drama) and Kane P’s acting seems quite raw from the clips I’ve watched so far but I’m pretty excited to see Janie play twins who are different as night and day.
And for the Adam Couple fans on my f-list, they reunited at a Beijing concert yesterday! Too bad they didn’t perform ‘Trouble Maker’ as the initial leaked programme said but We Fell in Love was cute and sweet as always. The highlight for Adam fans though is at the ending where Kwonnie and his bu-in put their arms around each other as they walked off stage. ❤
