Princess Agents: Zhao Li Ying

I’ve been following this drama while it was filming last year but didn’t post about it. Now that I’m a little bit more assured, I think I could post about it. It’s mostly because I’m scared to dive into her dramas since it’s either too dramatic, too tragic, or too frustrating. But finally something I would want to check into.

Anyway, I really like her image in here–regardless of costumes. The hairstyles are nice also–wherever possible. (This is a sticky ground since I swear ancient dramas nowadays just make me cringe at times with hairstyles.)

I know stills are deceiving since those only show us glimpses of the drama, but I feel like she’s Supergirl in here, acquiring various talents.

Oh yeah, this series is also adapted from a novel. Not quite sure of the length, but found a source that mentioned 68 episodes. Still positive (for now, lol).

The Legend of the Condor Heroes 2016: Guo Jing and Huang Rong – Valentine’s Special

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day (duh, I know) so Huace shared a poster of the main couple together, which was fine with me.

What got even cuter was when William took to his Weibo account to share how he was going to invite Rong Er to watch the show together. It was an attempt to promote the show but also a cute message of the two. She responded in a totally random way but it was still funny.

The point? If I wasn’t sold on this couple before, I’m sold now. (In fact, they’re like my favorite Guo Jing and Huang Rong after Felix and Barbara.)

So, how was it? After watching just two episodes, I will say that it has potential. At first, I was nitpicking and was wondering why they were fighting soooo slow during the snow scene at the beginning. It was like in slow motion instead of real time. Yet when it moved on to the later parts, they were fighting in real time so I was reassured. Why am I picking on the fighting? Seriously, this is wuxia after all, so I think it’s justified to be worried. And indeed, some of the fighting scenes were quite exaggerated, but I think it made me believe some characters were actually worth their title or reputation within the jianghu realm, instead of some short fighting scenes and some lame compliments to convince that they were actually good in their martial arts techniques or whatever.

Anyway, I will say I like it so far. The pace is just right. However, I know that the drag usually happens with later episodes, considering how they just managed to work out the story of the older generation.

What else? Oh yeah, they used the music of TVB’s ’80s version. Usually, I will say it’s a bad idea (because I did laugh at some people for using music from old adaptations by replacing new singers to sing, etc). But in this case, I felt it was nicely used. They, of course, changed the mix and it has become like a softer version.

The Legend of the Condor Heroes 2017: Huang Yao Shi

So back today to do a special update only on Michael Miu’s Huang Yao Shi (黃藥師). There were many stills released before yet I didn’t really post them, considering how other places are updating too. But I don’t care. I think it’s time I give him more attention.

Goofy BTS, lol.
