Interesting to note, Run for Time 2 was released last week! The first crew of guests are: Jiro Wang, Tian Liang, Lin Yun, Du Haitao, Du Chun, Wu Xin, and Myolie Wu.

There is a new novel adaptation you may look out for. It is called Cool Students, Can We Not Be Sad 凉生,我们可不可以不忧伤. This novel was written ten years ago. No casting news so far, but they seem to want a “fresh meat” to lead the cast..

The next chapter of Lost Tomb to be adapted is.. 《盜墓筆記之沙海》Tomb of the Sand. This is the fourth quarter of the series and will be filmed by the end of this year. It is produced by Ciwen media.


Korean Actress Lee Dae-hae will be back in China to lead another drama, 《我的女神,我的母亲》My Goddess, My Mother. Sounds good!


Famous producer and writer Yang Yang is working on his next movie Snow Queen 雪女王.

    I think 一念向北 is already airing, and the filming was actually donein 2013. Viki even got a licence for it and are calling it Thinking of You, Lu Xiang Bei.


  2. @creidesca and @xingfenzhen Yop! Thanks for noticing the mistake! We tend to put the raw translation of the name from Chinese directly unless the English name is well known or written on the poster/stills. The naming was changed! 😀


    • Thanks for the input! This list is only the dramas that the viki is working on right now, such that our non-mandarin readers can know what they could watch. That’s why it is not on the list. Also, we are not very familiar with 聶小倩 starring Annie Chen and Christopher Lee and that is why we never covered this drama on the blog… We will try to look out for this drama if we see interesting info about it in the future!

    Hi sorry I think you made a mistake the person filming with li xiao lu is not her husband. The male is jiang jin fu.


    • Thanks for mentioning it! My potatoe brain must had written this because I was 100% sure I typed Jiang Jingfu and didn’t realize this “typo” multiple times while rereading…
