The long lag time between the publishing of fantasy C-novel Once Promised by writer Tong Hua in 2011 to when the drama adaptation A Lifetime Love is hitting the small screens has lowered excitement but also expectations. I’m not peeved that the final cast of Huang Xiaoming and Victoria Song may not have been my choice, I care more that they have good chemistry and have a modicum of on point portrayal of their very distinctive and well-fleshed out characters in the novel.
There are more drama posters, stills, and a very angsty preview to add to the promos for the drama, and from a reader who devoured Once Promised it was like a breath of nostalgic air to see so many memorable scenes come to life before me. I think visually Huang Xiaoming and Victoria hit it out of the park embodying their characters, as does young cuties Wu Qian and Luo Yun Xi with their own romance side story, but the rest of the supporting cast comes off underwhelming a tad. The drama premieres on June 12th so imma give it a shot next week.
I don know but Huang Xioming needs to be at better control of his expression. Sometimes his intense stare ends up making him look like a creep.
Another trailer released yesterday. Is it me or they don’t release much for this drama?
The new one show they can do well at CG in some scenes.
Anyway I’m excited.
I am excited about this…. but is victoria’s acting any good? I haven’t watch her in any if her show.
I wouldn’t say she is good but she seems improving the last time I saw her
It looks good, but what´s the story about? 🙂
Tragic love of the main couple and how the female lead becomes victim of the political game and power
Not digging HXM’s wavy hair 🙁
Same. Too ahjumma style ?
Luo Yun Xi and Wu Qian?? THE YOUNGER VERSIONS OF WALLACE CHUNG AND TANG YAN IN SILENT SEPARATION? I AM IN!
