Summer came, I basked in the sun for a while. Taking in all the heat I could.

My Pictorial|Poster Faves: BLACKPINK IN YOUR AREA

Hello everyone, 😊

How are you all doing? I have been quite busy recently. I had to take a few days off to focus on essential issues. Due to my absence, I couldn’t give the usual song recommendations for the past three weeks. I should be back with that starting next week. Recently I have been gravitating towards blues, jazz, and afro songs; my upcoming weekly picks will be unique.

Alright, for this post, I’m sharing some of my favourite editorial photos from the ladies of BLACKPINK. They will be releasing their first full album titled THE ALBUM on October 2nd. Hopefully, it comes through with good songs.

My Pictorial|Poster Faves: A Murderous Affair In Horizon Tower

A Murderous Affair In Horizon Tower is a 2020 Chinese TV series that starred Yang Zi ShanGuo TaoLu Yu LaiAngelababyRexen ChengBaby Zhang more. It ran for 16 episodes.

Summary: A beautiful coffee shop owner named Zhong Meibao suddenly dies in a condominium at the Horizon Tower. She had on a doll-like makeup. Hence the case was referred to as the “Doll Murder Case”. This case shocks the whole tower, and after investigation, the clues point to three suspects – security guard Xie Baoluo, architect Lin Dasen and property manager Lin Mengyu. Zhong Meibao’s beauty enthralled all three suspects, and all had an intimate relationship with her. All clues seem to point to the possibility of a love crime. However, during the investigation, new clues begin to emerge and turn the focus to Zhong Meibao’s complicated and painful youth. Her family, consisting of her step-father, mother, younger brother and foster mother, were implicated. Just who could be the real murderer? (source – MyDramaList)

A look At Dilireba’s Upcoming Drama – The Long Ballad

I first saw the character posters for The Long Ballad (CHANGGE XING) last month, and I noticed that a lot of my favourite actors were in it. From Dilraba Dilmurat to Zhao Lusi, Alen Fang, Liu Hai Kun and Leo Wu. Since they were all familiar faces, including a new handsome face – Liu Yu Ning, I decided to keep an eye out for a trailer because that would determine if I’m going to commit or not. img_2379_originalimg_2380_originalimg_2381_originalBefore we dive into the trailer, let’s check out the basic summary of this drama. I know it’s adapted from a manhua called Xia Da.

Synopsis: Li Chang Ge’s family was murdered by Li Shi Min, the Emperor of Tang, during the Xuanwu Gate Incident. She heads to Shuo Province under the guise of a man with hopes of raising an army to kill Li Shi Min and avenge her family’s death. However, as a captain of the Shuo Province army in Zhangzhou, she loses a siege to the Eastern Turkic Khaganate General Ashina Sun, who takes her to serve him as a personal military strategist.

The first trailer was released last week. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have English subs, but I think if you’ve watched a good number of Chinese dramas, you should get the gist. This is also my first time watching it.

I think people who enjoy a stable balance of Wuxia (martial arts) and romance will definitely love this drama. Personally, I am 70/30 right now. I’ll wait for the second trailer before making my final decision. I do find the costumes beautiful. Take a look at the full character posters released by Tencent – img_0666_originalimg_0667_originalimg_0668_originalimg_0670_originalimg_0669_original

img_0671_originalimg_1890_originalimg_1889_originalimg_1894_originalimg_1887_originalimg_1895_originalimg_1892_originalimg_1888_originalimg_1893_originalThey used a lot of calm and neutral colours, but the designs still look grand and elegant. Also, since this is a wuxia series, the army attire + cinematography promises to be gorgeous. If you don’t know already, one of the primary reasons why I watch Historical dramas is to feast my eyes on lovely traditional attires and scenery.😊😊

Tencent has not announced an official release date for this series, but it will premiere this year.

That’s my quick take on The Long Ballad (CHANGGE XING) for now. Does anyone plan to watch this drama?
