Chinese dramas have been an embarrassment of riches this year, putting out so many dramas that have gone on my plan to watch list that I couldn’t get through them all in two years much less one. And The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion (2020) is just the latest to go on my list. Ju Jing Yi (In a Class of Her Own) is our heroine who has “foreseeing dreams” and sees herself married to Zhang Zhe Han (Everyone Wants To Meet You (2020)) in one of her dreams. The drama starts airing October 21, 2020 on iQiyi, and I’m pretty sure this will get subbed.
Synopsis: Fu Rong who’s the second daughter of the Fu family unexpectedly had the ability of “foreseeing dreams” after a serious illness. She predicted that she would marry to Prince Su, Xu Jin, and finally suffered the fate of being buried. However, Xu Jin also has the ability of foreseeing dreams. Although Xu Jin also predicted the same tragedy, he doesn’t want to avoid it but try his utmost to change the destiny. These two people begin the sweet game of “framing one another”.

I’ve watched the two leads together in 2018’s Legend of Yun Xi before and they make a great couple. The screenwriter for The Blooms at Ruyi Pavilion (2020) is Jin Yuan Yuan and she was also the screenwriter of Legend of Yun Xi, so we have a solid team on this drama… including one of the directors Lin Jian Long who also worked on, can u guess? 😁 Yes, that’s right, he was the director of Legend of Yun Xi (the other director is Chen Guo Hua). So this looks to be very much a reunion of the 2018 drama, and you know what, I’m all for it. It was a good drama, but well, not exactly a happy ending. Let’s hope our couple here get their happy ending!
