With the soon release of this epic drama (it is scheduled for November 29th so in about three days), Qin’s Moon is releasing a lot of stills and goodies for the anticipating viewers. We wrote about this drama before Here, but this is our second post. Kind of an anticipation post?😛
My friend who watched the anime version strongly recommended it and I am myself also quiet curious to see this story unfold. So far, I am not a fan of the leads (I think they are the leads?). Lu Yi did not impress me in Yun Zhong Ge and Michelle Chen was horrible in Return of the Condor Heroes. Let’s see if Tangren can do a better job than Yu Zheng at making us like an actor/actress. Anecdote. My friend always yelled to me watch “Qin’s Moon!” and I always heard Cheese Moon. So, at the beginning, I thought it was a dessert cooking anime (Cheesecaker or moon cake? :’D ). Anyway, now, I know what it is. ouf.
Release date: 11/29/2015
