SakiVI: I've had very little to say for weeks. I'm only watching Hwayugi and Tienstin Mystic on this list. ::Shrugs::
JoAnne:  If you're watching something else - add it. Maybe someone reading will either be interested, or is watching and would love to comment. I don't always know/remember what everyone else is watching if it's not the usual Korean or Chinese shows, but the list is certainly not limited to what I put down when I set up the post.
Yes, I know, but this time around, I don't feel like the dailies I follow are worth discussing. And I haven't got another main drama, so to speak. Maybe if I start Arrows on the Bow string I'll have more for next week.
kakashi: I haven't watched a single minute of any show this week but I've been good! I've worked hard.
Trotwood: I'm back from vacation, but despite swearing that I was going to catch up with dramas while I was away, I spent more time scarfing down scones with clotted cream than watch…

Against the backdrop of dead silence, the thud of her feet as they dropped on the wood floor, reverberated through the Hall of Beautiful Youth. A sharp chill had roused Bai Qian from sleep and caused the small hairs on the back of her neck to stand on end. Leaning over the edge of the bed, she picked up her outer robe from the nearby rack and threw it around herself, quickly fastening the ties.

“Nai Nai?”

“I would not want to experience mortal suffering, you are right. But at least, it ends. Immortal grief is much worse. It doesn’t.”

She had been right. Immortal grief was like a taste of hell while one was damned to live, like an ocean of the blackest sorrow threatening to drown one’s every sense and purpose.

During the dark ages when the world was freshly formed, cultivation was new and there were no controls or limits. There were no records either, no masters to teach anyone, not even the High Gods. Stabilizing cultivation was a balancing act established through trial and error and if one was not careful, it could easily lead to catastrophic results. It took millennia and thousands of innocents dying at the hands of those who had lost control over their powers for enough knowledge to be gathered, rules to be set, and records to be put in place.

SakiVI: In which our handsome youths get to know each other more as they begin investigating Ding Dad's death and that of the unknown infant. Their styles are different, but complimentary, and it looks like the beginning of a deep bromance for people who like that sort of thing.
kakashi: If they are not the true OTP, I will be angry.
JoAnne: Who doesn't like a deep bromance? And if you don't...why are you watching dramas where all the best romances are always b-romances?
Because the writers throw the bromance into my adventure story against my will.

Ink in Water 70,300 years after the Ghost War, across the unchanging 36 celestial skies, the gods carried on with their leisurely existence, penning lives and sewing fate.

On the banks of the Yangtze River, a mortal held onto the lifeless body of the woman he loved, cursing the gods.

And below the darkest depths of 18 layers of hell, an ancestor frozen in time begins to stir.

Bai Qian of Qing Qiu thought that as a nine-tail fox, she had chosen her mate for life, and that he was Crown Prince Ye Hua of Heaven. But her convictions are shaken when her teacher, Ye Hua’s twin brother, the God of War Mo Yuan, finally returns 70,000 years after his soul sacrifice. His presence causes bridled feelings to come undone, but Bai Qian is forced to realize that when the heart wants what it can’t have, guilt can contaminate desire.

As they navigate the murky waters between them, both parties deny their affections until they are pushed to further acknowledge them through several lifetimes of hearta…

Māma [1], I am home!”

She came flying into the hall followed closely by her steed, which not too long ago during their travels had finally been able to assume its human form, albeit he was just a young child at this point. It was something she was extremely proud of since her Brother didn’t have one of his own, mostly because the loser kept to his books and to himself, and was a standard leech just living off riding her Mother’s many steeds for transportation.
