Ooooooh, fight fight fight! Someone replenish my popcorn cuz this is going to get wild. Top C-actress Crystal Liu who rose to fame as Xiaolongnu in the 2006 C-drama adaptation of Return of the Condor Heroes and has sense gotten worldwide projects will be making her first C-drama return since then. She was supposed to be back in 2018 with the C-drama The Love of Hypnosis (Nan Yan Zai Bi Lu) with Jing Bo Ran but that drama basically got shelved when a member of the main cast (not the two leads) was deemed by the C-government as one of those blacklisted entertainers. So Crystal’s first return to TV in 16 years will now be the period drama Meng Hua Lu (夢華錄) with Chen Xiao. This drama has been done filming since 2021 and reportedly had to cut 8 (!) episodes in material in order to pass government review and get the airing permit. So now it’s ready to go and the production announced the coveted June 2022 release right in time for the summer holidays. But after it was announced, two other high profile female lead led C-dramas also announced it would be premiering them – Yang Zi and Cheng Yi in Immortal Samsara (沉香如屑) and also Dilraba Dilmurat and Gong Jun in The Legend of Anle (安樂傳). Once this was announced then fans of both actresses started sparring with Crystal’s fans and it’s a full on shit show. Showdown between whether Crystal or Dilraba is the prettiest most goddess actress in C-ent to which one is the better actress and who has most clout, i.e. fans and buzz. I think there is enough time slots for everyone so for the sanity of C-forums please just move these dramas away from each other in air date.
Everyone has their own beauty, can’t wait to watch crystal liu new Cdrama
Oooh! Fans are sparring but I’m just super happy my anticipated dramas are airing at the same time!
Those fans are in lockdown cycle China for too long. They are letting out stress online. I am looking forward to Crystal Liu and Yang Zi dramas…as for Dilraba, that will be wait and see…
And I still waiting for love like galaxy with lusi and leo, waiting forever for joy of life 2
battle of goddesses 😆
Looking forward to Immortal Samsara and Hua Meng Lu!
The drama title is spelt wrongly, it’s Meng Hua Lu, not Hua Meng Lu. I’m looking forward to seeing Liu Yifei and Chen Xiao.
For me it’s Dilraba & Gong Jun for Legend of Anle. Also anticipating Joy of Life 2 (come on, cdramagods!), Eternal Love with Dylan Wang & Esther Yu, and Love You Seven Times with Ryan Ding.
Omg! These three are my bets. I love them all so do definetely I will watch them all.
hi koala have you watch who rules the world with YangYang and Zhao Lusi? I follow your blog mostly for k drama review but this one easily become one of my fav c drama.
i think i only watch crystal liu in movie. cant wait for her drama comeback and love like the galaxy with zhao lusi and lu wei.
Although I’m psyched for Crystal Liu’s comeback, I’m really more excited for the pairing with Chen Xiao.
I totally adore that actor.
