TW Dramas

Upcoming TW Drama Dragon Gate’s first teaser – Crazy. Action. Hair flick!

I was intrigued when I heard about upcoming TW drama ‘Dragon Gate’ (飛越龍門客棧), the first idol drama made by TVBS starring Sunny Wang, Alice Ke, Tammy Chen and Melvin Sia. It’s supposed to be a reimagining of 1992 HK movie “New Dragon Gate Inn”. (Well, I didn’t see that movie so I can’t comment on that.)

 

The story – the case about an explosion that rocks the city leads to a story of turbulence in a dark city. The four leads cross paths in love, hate and revenge… who can be the last person standing?

 

Reminds me of ‘Black and White’? (Although it could just be there aren’t many crime/police type dramas in Taiwan.) At the Shanghai TV Festival last week, the first teaser was released.


I don’t know how to describe this.

  • Sunny the action hero. Hrm. I’ll reserve judgement for that one.
  • Woah explosion – CGI is okay I suppose.
  • Alice looks nice in her short hair
  • The pin in the neck thing… seriously?
  • OMG Tammy and the hair flick, I’m LOL-ing so hard
  • Are those Sunny’s tattoos?
  • Tammy what are you doing in this drama? Was that even a slap?
  • Another hair flick! Tammy is stealing the show here, is that intended?
  • This Melvin guy looks A LOT like the Soler twins
  • Alice does that kung fu move which looks super fake
  • oh we end with ROOFTOP, the staple of all crime dramas these days

 

This is like a serious drama right?  I should watch this just for Tammy and her great hair.

    First of all thanks so much for posting this, I’ve been looking around for something official about this drama but I couldn’t find anything for a while! I’m surprised it’s an action drama because I thought it would be a rom-com. I think it is refreshing to have an action tw-drama. (if it’s good)

    Anyways I LOVE CHEN YI RONG, she’s so gorgeous in the trailer/promo poster! But I found myself laughing out loud at the trailer, it was trying to be all serious but it ended up being funny with all of Chen Yi Rong’s hair flips, her throwing tea in someone’s face, and her mini-slap. But in some of the other stills, Chen Yi Rong looks like a BAMF.

    Do you know when this will be airing?

      I hope this is good, since it’s refreshing to see a more action oriented tw drama. Looking at all the stills they’ve released so far it is aiming for the serious angle, although Chen Yi Rong is appearing more like a comic book villain at the moment. Not necessarily bad, but quite easy to get it wrong. Only a few weeks more to go, can’t wait to see how this one will turn out.

        I don’t get why Melvin’s character isn’t also on the poster…it seems like there should be 4 leads but instead they only promote 3 leads. O_O

          Yeah…is it because he’s not as well known as the others? This is his first TW drama I think?
