Anticipated C-drama: Lan Ling Wang – Opening Theme Song
Lately in the c-drama scene, there have been several upcoming c-dramas that people have been excited about waaay in advance, Lan Lin Wang being one of them. I think part of the hype over Lan Ling Wang is its cast–ARIEL LIN as the heroine and Feng Shao Feng and Daniel Chan as the leading men. Sounds like a solid cast and Ariel Lin alone would be enough for me to check out this drama. But up until now I haven’t really been following the promotional trailers, stills, etc. until I stumbled upon this awesome opening theme song for the drama!
This theme song & opening MV took me by surprise because it is not what I would expect from a romantic Chinese period drama. Oftentimes period c-dramas have a beautiful yet generic sounding ancient theme song. Not this one! Instead the Lan Lin Wang theme song is catchy and awesome! It kinda reminds me of theme songs for Japanese anime (which, is a good thing in my opinion) that will undoubtedly get stuck in my head.
The MV also has a lot of pretty pretty to stare at, which also impressed me a lot! I am really hoping for another c-drama with great production values! I checked out the trailers as well and they also have some great cinematography.
*Update* Lan Lin Wang is scheduled to air starting this summer on August 14th, 2013.
