With so many dramas constantly coming out, I’m overwhelmed. These are two dramas I’m extremely excited for and that I may recap. Let me know if there’s anything else I should consider!
Skate Into Love
Admittedly, the thought of 45 episodes stresses me out, but Skate Into Love (pictured above) is an upcoming competitive ice skating romance drama starring Wu Qian (Janice Wu)! I’m hoping this is finally a role for her where she’s not a pushover. The male lead Zhang Xin Cheng (Steven Zhang) previously starred in My Huckleberry Friends, which I haven’t seen but did hear good things about.
It sounds like Skate Into Love is set in college, with the male lead as a talented ice hockey player and the female lead as a struggling speed skater. I saw some kind of trailer or promo video that looked really cute, but I can’t find the link anymore.
Triad Princess is Netflix original series coming out on December 6, and it looks like a fun, action rom-com. Listen to this premise: a mobster’s daughter becomes the bodyguard for the popular actor that she happens to be a huge fan of. The actor is played by Jasper Liu, who starred in the highly-popular Taiwanese drama Before We Get Married earlier this year. (I adore Jasper—is there a more popular Taiwanese TV actor right now?) I’m also excited to see Eugenie Liu play a female lead who isn’t the typical naive and kind-hearted girl.
