Well, seems producer Liu Ning has another trick up his sleeve when he finally revealed today that the final installment to the Honey Trilogy 蜜糖三部曲 has already been worked out. Entitled Love When The Stars Fall 星落凝成糖, the drama completes the trilogy made up of the popular historical Ashes of Love 香蜜沉沉烬如霜 which became huge boons for co-stars Yang Zi and Deng Lun’scareers, and the franchise’s latest offering – Skate into Love 冰糖炖雪梨 which features the charismatic CP of Janice Wu and Steven Zhang.
Frankly speaking, I don’t quite get why this was christened as a trilogy since there’s no correlation whatsoever or any overlapping story line amongst the three. I mean, AoL was a historical, SoL is a modern drama, whilst the newest one Love When The Stars Fall promises to be yet another historical judging from the fantastical otherworldly elements on the gorgeous posters shared for the announcement. Maybe it’s because of the honey (蜜) and sugar (糖) characters on the Chinese titles? Haha that was a long shot but you know what all three have in common? Well aside from all three being romances, the final offering for the three part trilogy will bring back the original Ashes of Love production team once again tasked to bring the story of two sisters who are polar opposites to each other to life.
I don't know anything about this novel (is it a novel?), but since it's helmed by the same team as Ashes of Love and it's a historical drama, I'm expecting it to be good, or at the very least, well done visually. Actually, I shouldn't expect anything because that can lead to disappointment, so I'll just hope that it's a nice watch.
And our wonderful Song Ji Yang is playing there. That was most important info, how come Drama Panda missed it?
So confusing…how is this a trilogy…the second story Skate to Love…has nothing to do with AOL, even the setting is as different as sky and earth. Besides the same production crew i never would have thought this was considered the honey trilogy…weird.
