WOW! February has so many dramas lined-up. Crazy crazy. We covered a few of them in our latest list article, but let’s focus on one of them now. Chronicles of Life will be released on February 1st.
寂寞空庭春欲晚 Chronicles of Life is starring Hawick Lau and Zheng Shuang. The drama will be released on February 1st and they already released a ten minutes trailer that reveals most of the plot.
Quick thoughts: First of all, the costumes are super pretty and pleasant to the eyes. However, I have never seen such a weak emperor (Hawick Lau), like ever. And Zheng Shuang’s character started from passive to… I am not sure what (vengeful?). It is not bad per say (definitely better than their last collaboration Cage of Love), but it is not that great either.
In the middle of change of power in the royal court, young eight years old Kang Xi (Hawick Lau) meets with ten years old Liang Er (Zheng Shuang). After surviving a deathly event (?), they develop feelings for each other and promise to meet again when they grown old. However, Liang Er loses her memory. She stays in the palace as a maid and changes her name to Wei Linlang. Growing up with her cousin Rong Ruo (Zhang Binbin) who takes good care of her, they become childhood sweetheart. Problems begin when Kang Xi recognize Linlang as Liang Er…
