[Upcoming Mainland Chinese Drama 2018] Jade Lovers 翡翠恋人

Recommended Posts

I think this thread will be lively.  Daily Motion had Rain's drama subbed.  Viki also has some episodes but no one subbing it.  With it being LJS's perhaps we will get more interest and it will be subbed.  Lets keep our fingers crossed.  I guess it depends on how much hype this drama will receive and the marketing efforts etc.  With big guns producing it and with the budget, I am hopeful mainstream subbers will pick it up.  

But it will be a long wait based on what I understand.  Almost a year!!!  In the meantime, all we will have are photographs from Cfans + any promo stuff that they will update.

....

All I wish that this drama to be a better Cdrama and not a typical one.  I wish good tidings for LJS.  Hope he will be treated very well, respected and he will enjoy working in that environment and do a great job and make himself proud.  Rest will fall in place.  And of course, will have great chemistry with the actress, fall in drama love the way he always does and it will turn out to be a master piece.  

I am very much looking forward to it despite my misgivings with Cdrama quality.

Yay for the new thread on JS

Yay for JS comeback project

Yay for the early Christmas surprise

Yay for all the familiar fans (so far) in here

Yay for I just missed out on appearing on the 1st page

 

At least we can focus on his career again after 1 whole year. I thought when he said "see you soon" at the end of Pinocchio I really thought I get to see him again as in really soon but it took 1 whole year for that "soon". It finally comes and so here I am.

 

Here wishing JS success with his new acting project!

Since Jade Lover is set to air via Zhejiang, Anhui Television, I will move it to Mainland China, where it is appropriate.

Hee...I like the way 40 Bil Won is translated into 400 m $

It actually is about 34 Mil $.  Though that is a huge amount for a drama for sure.  And 15% of that goes to LJS.  Quite possibly, another 15% will go to lead actress if she is a listed.  That leaves about 70% to the actual production and for the rest of the cast!!! 

...

I am not sure why I felt like posting this but I thought it was interesting.

...

Unless production budget is different from casting budget.  

...

Actually, after I posted this, I started reading about production costs etc and apparently, in Korean dramas, sometimes almost 40%-50% of the production cost is taken away by stars which leaves only 60%-50% to rest of everything...Kind of crazy!!  So, this equation is kind of so much better than that.

Annyeonghaseo.... waa finally I found this thread, thanks @Rania Zeid for starting this thread. Long time no see since Pinocchio, it's been a year ago, do you still remember me? :D:D

I've just read on some blogs, that he finally confirmed. Many K-actor/actress spreads their wings to China nowadays. Actually I wish for him to reunite with PSH, LOL. But it can't be, can it?

Since its a reunion of him with DS's PD, I hope the screen writer won't write like DS, lol... and I hope that the episode wouldn't be too long.  Since it was set in 1930, will they be like a chinese saeguk ? :D it waas said that this will be a pre-filmed drama, so it would be released in 2016, still long wayyy... ugh... and one more, I hope, I really hope, they won't dub LJS voice to speak into chinese, please don't use dubbing voice, it's a bit... you know what I mean .. no offense anyway.

Wow, everyone is here already... hope I'm not too late to join in the party! :) 

I watch a few cdramas but never make it half way.  As far as I know, before broadcast, they have to totally finishing filming the whole drama.  After that they release mini trailers.  During production they release screen cap here and there. 

Oh there will be lots n lots of promotion before airing.  So we will see sukkie in happy camp and pre/post cons as well.   Hehehe... those are the few advantages in doing cdrama. :)

Lee Jong-suk's co-star is said to be a top Chinese female star and the movie will be taken in all locations of China in January of 2016.

So our thread was moved here, no wonder why I can't find it in kdrama category. Reading you guys' optimistic posts I also feel confident :P Yeah, our boy will make it, no matter K or Cdrama, no matter what challenges await, I believe he will overcome them all! Wishing the best for Jade Lover :rolleyes:

Quote

"The filming crew has decided that LJS will receive the script of "Jade Lover" in advance and he can put forward his own opinion on the role. This is an unprecedented thing that further catches people's wide attention"

From the article that JShine translated, I enjoy this part most B) I think this not only helps the actor to understand more ab his role but also helps him to portray it more realistic and in a unique way. It's really worth waiting :rolleyes:

A fantasy drama with a chaebol role that JS has chosen over other offers is already different to what I have seen him played in the past. He having a say in his role says a lot about his status in China and them respecting his opinions too since JS did after all received recognitions from the SK directors for his acting talents.

 

The fantasy factor may mean some kinds of magic involved right? Will anticipate what that will be…maybe something to do with the "jade" changing his character to a "dark" side (just thinking of a scenario here).

 

But since it's a cdrama, regardless if JS could speak Chinese Mandarin, his voice will most likely dubbed. It's quite common in China dramas that I've seen so far, since even actors from Taiwan have had their voiced dubbed over because they don't have the "perfect" accent… Just hope the voice they choose will closely match to his (but it's going to be hard since JS voice is quite unique) or a least sound pleasant to the ears.
