New year and the first C-drama out of the gate is the splashy romance period piece General and I, adapted from the popular C-novel A Lonesome Fragrance Waiting to be Appreciated. I think the casting is on point with period drama leading man veteran Wallace Chung playing the patriotic general and prince with Angelababy as the whip smart damsel sometimes in distress. She’s constantly in danger but almost always uses her intelligence to figure out a solution so I give her a pass for looking like a typical woman in peril in the previews and stills. Wallace has proven chemistry with a slew of C-actresses so as long as this pair sells their star-crossed romance convincingly then this should be an entertaining enough drama to check out.
