Got to love dramas based on Chinese novels. Bloody Romance is based on an erotic novel, but thankfully divorces that from the drama (the erotic part, I mean). Li Yi Tong stars as a young girl sold to a brothel in exchange for food for her father and little brother to live on. She escapes and ends up being taken in to a village of assassins known as Gui Hua City. She falls for her shadow which is forbidden. Oh, and there’s an exiled prince who also falls for her as well. Can they all survive and find a happy ending?
Heavy Sweetness, Ash-like Frost…quite the name. Simply calling it Ashes of Love is very appropriate. The Flower Goddess passes away the day her daughter is born and the man she loves marries another woman. She commands her daughter be locked away for 10,000 years to overcome a love trial and also imparts a drug that keeps her daughter from falling in love. This leads to quite the tragedy and you may imagine.
