New and Coming Soon to DramaFever
This week we saw a beautiful, highly-anticipated Chinese fantasy drama, the sequel to a classic medical drama, and an adorable supernatural romantic web series. Next week we'll catch a glimpse of the lives of five college roommates as they struggle with the turbulence of being in their 20s. Take a look!
1. Touching You
Ok Taec Yeon (Let’s Fight, Ghost) and Song Ha Yoon (Dream Knight) star in a magical romantic comedy that defies time itself. Suave and handsome Do Jin Woo (Ok Taec Yeon) has a special ability: every time he touches someone, he can see into their future. One day, he meets and falls in love with aspiring makeup artist Jin Hee Young (Song Ha Yoon), who is an angel to those around her and doesn’t let the selfishness and cruelty of the world change her willingness to help people however she can. But, because he can see the future, Jin Woo knows this girl is doomed to a horrible fate. Can he use his powers to save her life, or will time prove too powerful an enemy to conquer, even for someone who knows what’s coming? Adding to the drama are Oh Young Dal (Gu Family Book actor Park Joo Hyung), who runs a fortune-reading cafe, and Kang Hyun Seo (Faith alum Kim Jong Moon), a professional investor.
Also known as “I’m Going to Touch You,” Touching You is a web drama that debuted on Naver TV Cast on July 4, 2016. First announced last March, the drama is produced by JYP Entertainment and airs every weekday, for an expected run of ten 15-minute episodes and a finale scheduled for July 19, 2016. The extended cast for Touching You includes Ok Taec Yeon as Do Jin Woo, Song Ha Yoon as Jin Hee Young, Park Joo Hyung as Oh Young Dal, and Kim Jong Moon as Kang Hyun Seo.
2. Ice Fantasy
Ice Fantasy (幻城) is an upcoming 2016 Chinese epic fantasy television drama based on Guo Jing Ming's bestselling novel, City of Fantasy. It was directed by Ju Jue Liang, and stars Feng Shao-feng, Victoria Song, Ma Tianyu, and Zhang Meng. The drama was produced by Shanghai Youhug Media and will broadcast on Hunan Satellite Television Diamond independent broadcast theater.
The story is set a hundred years after a war between the Empire of Snow (Ice Tribe) and the Fire Tribe, where the Fire Tribe was defeated. However, the war was fatal, leaving Prince Ka Suo and his younger half-brother Ying Kong Shi the only royal heirs and pure-blood ice illusionists left in the Ice Tribe. Conflict ensues after Ka Suo reluctantly ascends to the throne as his lover, Li Luo, and his brother go missing.
Ka Suo also accidentally discovers an evil presence lurking in the Ice Tribe's holy shrine. He and his companions enter the mysterious shrine, and defeat head of the shrine, Lady Lian Ji, only to find out that she has been plotting a conspiracy against him. Ka Suo also experiences hardships in trying to find his lover and brother, not knowing that his brother has lost all of his memories and has become the Fire Prince under his mother's command. A war between the two tribes commences once again, with the two brothers pitted against each other.
The Hippocratic Crush II immediately follows off from The Hippocratic Crush, following the lives of doctors, new and old, facing the patients and challenges that unfold before them. Kenneth Ma (Can’t Buy Me Love) and Tavia Yeung (Beyond the Realm of Conscience) reunite as the iconic medical couple in the sequel to the modern classic that is sure to send your heart rate surging. Neurosurgeon Cheung Yat Kin (Kenneth Ma) marries fellow doctor Fan Tze Yu (Tavia Yeung) and the two are happily living together, expecting their first child. However, when Tze Yu is diagnosed with a tumor, her pregnancy becomes medically unsafe and, much to her dismay, Yat Kin doesn’t want her to go through with childbirth. This causes a dangerous rift between the two, one that love alone can’t bridge. And before the once-happy couple can focus on their marital problems, Yat Kin also has to contend with pathology specialist Lok Man Sang (famed Hong Kong heartthrob Lawrence Ng), a new arrival to the hospital who simply cannot go without disagreeing with our lead, and who also gets involved with Heung Chin Yi (Miss Hong Kong Pageant runner up Tracy Chu), an internal medicine doctor nearly 20 years his junior with her own heartbreak to deal with. Between an unwanted power struggle, the slow disintegration of their marriage, and the small matter of saving lives, Yat Kin and Tze Yu have to figure out just to how bring their flat-lining marriage—and love—back to the operating table.
1. Age of Youth
The first two episodes of Age of Youth will premiere on DramaFever on Monday, July 25, 2015. The following episodes will air on Friday/Saturday every week. Thanks for watching with us!
Han Ye Ri (Six Flying Dragons) and Park Eun Bin (Choco Bank) head an ensemble comedy about friendship, love and college tuition. University student Yoon Jin Myung (Han Ye Ri) is busy supporting herself both academically and financially, so she understandably has a severe shortage of sleep and little time for drama. Unfortunately, living with four roommates has its share of drama. There’s Song Ji Won (Park Eun Bin), whose drinking habit does nothing to tame her bright personality. There’s Jung Ye Eun (former KARA member and Secret Love star Han Seung Yeon), who is completely devoted to her boyfriend and is very clear on what she does and does not like. There’s Kang Yi Na (Descendants of the Sun actress Hwa Young), whose popularity comes almost exclusively from her stellar good looks. And then there’s Yoo Eun Jae (Yong Pal alum Park Hye Soo), who is rather timid but has a very unique taste in men. Together, they navigate the many challenges that life will throw their way because, well, what else are roommates for?
Also known as, Hello, My Twenties!, Age of Youth is the latest drama from director Lee Tae Gon, an industry veteran responsible for the blockbuster My Love Eun Dong. Critically-acclaimed screenwriter Park Yeon Sun, whose extensive resume in both film and television includes hits such as Attack on the Pin-Up Boys, returns to the writer’s chair nearly four years after her work on Wild Romance. The first episode of Age of Youth aired on jTBC, with subsequent episodes airing every Friday and Saturday at 8:30PM, in the time slot vacated by the conclusion of Mirror of the Witch. The show is expected to run for 12 episodes, with a finale scheduled for August 27, 2016.
The full cast for Age of Youth includes Han Ye Ri as Yoon Jin Myung, Park Eun Bin as Song Ji Won, Han Seung Yeon as Jung Ye Eun, Hwa Young as Kang Yi Na, Park Hye Soo as Yoo Eun Jae, Yoon Park as Park Jae Wan, and Ji Il Joo as Ko Doo Young.
