I’m halfway through reading the C-novel A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated (孤芳不自赏 Gu Fang Bu Zhi Shang) and am oddly stalled even though it’s entertaining enough. Maybe seeing the first stills from the C-drama adaptation will spur me to pick it back up, though English title of General and I makes me want to chortle. Starring Wallace Chung and Angelababy, the story follows the star-crossed and enemy to lovers romance of a Princely General from one kingdom and the smartest consigliere commoner girl from the enemy kingdom. The fact that the female lead is brilliant and all the men around her know and admire her for it makes me happy, a nice change of pace from either the warrior girl or the helpless lady types. I’m not a fan of Wallace’s updo look but Angelababy is channeling her best Xiaolongnu impression with the all white robe and long simply styled goddess hair.
