Righteous Ardour of Changan 热血长安 is a webdrama starring Xu Haiqiao, SNH48 Ju Jingyi, Zhang Xinyuan and Chen Xiaomeng.

The CGI is a lot more impressive than Xuanyuan’s. Also like the concept of a detective agency investigating the supernatural.

Three Lives, Three Worlds, Ten Miles of Cherry Blossoms (too long of a title) 三生三世十里桃花 stars Yang Mi, Mark Zhao and Yu Menglong. (Blurry preview sorry)

Watch the preview on Youtube here.

The title would have been more perfect if it was three miles of cherry blossoms instead.

General and I 孤芳不自賞 stars Wallace Chung, Angelababy and Sun Yizhou.

Watch the trailer on Youtube here.

Enemies to lovers, or lovers to enemies? The trailer shows leading guy saying “So you can’t kill me after all” to leading lady. Not sure how much chemistry the two have but I know Wallace Chung sure can kiss, so maybe this will be good. At least it looks like a quality production.

LATE 2017

Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace 如懿传 stars Wallace Huo, Zhou Xun and Janine Chang.

Watch the BTS / trailer on Youtube here.

Probably my most anticipated drama for 2017.
