Teaser:

Watching the trailer alone is enough to give me the vibes of “As Tears Go By” and “Chungking Mansion”. It’s so Wong Kar Wai indeed. It looks promising, especially with a cast such as this! :star_struck:

@iris78 Your cup of tea? :wave:
I can’t wait! :joy::sunglasses:

Synopsis:
During the war between Wei and Shu, the Shu defeated the Wei using the crossbows they made. In order to attain this powerful weapon, the Wei sent numerous spies to infiltrate the Shu Kingdom to steal them. Chen Gong and Xun Xu are Shu spies who have infiltrated Wei Kingdom for many years. After knowing the plan of Wei, they decided to work separately to stop it. Chen Gong continued to stay in Wei Kingdom, while Xun Xu went back to Shu Kingdom to investigate. In the midst of investigation, Xun Xu finds out the thief of the crossbows - Mei Chong. He also discovers a highly skilled spy code-named Zhu Long who is ambushed in Shu Kingdom, who is waiting for the opportunity to initiate the Qing Ping plan. Xun Xu devised a scheme to hook Mei Chong, using it as an opportunity to destroy the spy network in Shu Kingdom.

Despite eventually capturing Gao Chengtang, a corrupt officer, the real Zhu Long is actually someone else. Chen Gong also ends his spy career in Wei Kingdom, and goes back to Shu Kingdom. Together, Xun Xu and Chen Gong investigate the Zhu Long incident and discover the truth behind the Qing Ping plan. (Source: DramaWiki)
Starring: Chen Kun & Bai Yu (Supporting: Nie Yuan, Li Guangjie, Sun Yi, Angelababy)

Official Trailer:

Note: An espionage drama set in the Three Kingdoms era. A male-centered plot, suspenseful but apparently with nil romance. It’s highly anticipated (in the C-netz universe). Can’t wait!

It’s licensed now. :blush:


#117

We have a channel!!


#118

Thanks for the info.
When I first read the synopsis of What’s Wrong With My Secretary. I thought the plot would be something like this one. I was very disappointed after watching it.
This Chinese drama sounds like a mix of Crazy Love, A Business Proposal and What’s Wrong With My Secretary (and also Ugly Betty maybe).
Anyway, I’m very excited! The revenge of the Secretary! :smiling_imp:

@sheli @hanjingyi
Thank you for the good news!

You’re welcome! :grinning:
You may be right. We’ll find out soon. From the trailer, it does look promising and fun. Plus, so glad to see Lin back on the small screen again. This CP pairing looks cute and cheesy lol. :sunglasses:
