For music lovers –
Not really interested in the dramas for network…Except for Go Go Squid, King of Blaze and Cry Me a Sad River.
I prefer my costume dramas. Guess they are all going to end up as web dramas eh?
Growing Pain sounds like it'll be a great drama, but it lacks "international" appeal.
There are so many. I’ll just wait to see people’s reactions and watch later lol
I am only looking forward to Go Go Squid for a sweet and fluffy romance between Yang Zi and Li Xian. I will check out the rest of the dramas if any of them manage to create a buzz.
How about "The King's Avatar" with Yang Yang and Jang ShuYing? Is it only going to be a web drama on Tencent?
Spy hunter looks intriguing!!
Fearless Whispers and Wait in Beijing.
