Yay!!!! Yippeee! Woohoo! I think all the waiting around since forever has pretty much left me with little ability to compose myself and form a cohesive sentence, but I’m super psyched with the new trailer. It’s finally out! You can check out the original post here or check the trailer below. (Also thanks to Heisui for letting me know, since I pretty much live under a rock for the most part hehe~)
So aside Shi Shi looking gorgeous in Han wear, to my relief she doesn’t look half dead in the teaser unlike what’s coming out of the more recently produced Bu Bu Jing Qing. Her chemistry with Hu Ge is palpable, but I think I need a few more scenes to cement it in. Nevertheless she doesn’t end up with Meng Jue anyhow, and it’s really a matter of how well her chemistry is running with Eddie, who surprisingly isn’t half bad. He’s actually rather cute.
I’ve only seen Eddie in a few things namely, bunch of his movies, he was somewhat endearing opposite Ivy in ‘Hear Me’, and he is pretty easy on the eyes even with his really defined jaw line. I am still a little sceptical on the other hand, since so far I see a lot of cute, and in the novel Qu Bing and Jin Yue are supposed to be quite steamy with their cute. Maybe things do heat up?
Also I think it’s fair to say, Tangren have spent a nice load of money on this drama, imo yes the CGI is still pretty fugly ala the meet and greet in the water at 2:04 but for the most parts it’s standing up pretty well. I hope the soundtrack is going for more though, the opening song is nice…and that’s about it, it’s nice and does grow on you after a while but I don’t find it particularly memorable, I’m kind of hoping a songstress will magically make it into the soundtrack *cough* Yan Yi Dan or even someone better. After all the drama’s protagonist is a woman, so maybe a female voice would be apt. I’m a little confused on the music at 2:37, that’s got to be the most umm exotic music I’ve heard in a period drama?
Anyhow enjoy the pretty and maybe the drama will air at a certain time of the year when I’m not taking an exam or something of that sort 😀
