I don't know what you've been looking at lately?
I'm already short anyway.
After watching "Crazy", "Infernal" and "Long Season" one after another, I feel that the threshold for chasing dramas has increased. The newly launched dramas are one after another, but none of them really enter the heart, and it feels like it is almost meaningful.
Of course, I'm not the only one who feels this way. Many viewers also continue to give me feedback in the comment area, asking me to recommend a few good-looking domestic dramas. To be honest, the upcoming broadcast, I don't think I can enter your eyes, I can only recommend a few dramas that will start in the second half of 2023.
Among the various themes, spy war dramas have always been my favorite, and I will recommend 5 blockbuster spy war dramas to be broadcast.
While the series has not yet started, try it with everyone first!
These 5 spy war dramas, each of which is a gathering of big names, each of which has old acquaintances, and Liu Yunlong presses the formation, which is worth looking forward to.
One: Liu Yunlong's "Dream Bund", once known as "The City of Might"
Liu Yunlong, finally waited for Liu Yunlong again. Known as the "godfather of spy warfare" by fans, he has been deeply engaged in spy war dramas for many years, and with his two works "Dark Calculation" and "Kite", he has successfully become popular and has become a benchmark in the industry.
To watch spy war dramas, you have to watch Liu Yunlong.
Therefore, as soon as Liu Yunlong's "Dream Bund" came out, it immediately attracted my attention.
However, what makes people a little worried is that Liu Yunlong's "Dream Bund" has been restless since the day of the project and has encountered many storms. From the initial change of actors to the subsequent crew turmoil, this drama has been restless for a long time.
Of course, fortunately, at present, this drama has been successfully completed and has been filmed completely. As the so-called good things take a long time, for "Dream Bund", it doesn't matter if there is no Lei Jiayin and Yu Hewei, and it's not afraid to change the name, as long as there is Liu Yunlong's basic plate, this drama will not be bad.
It is reported that the protagonists of this drama are the two brothers Ling Yunzhou and Ling Yuezhou. The story is that the two brothers belong to different camps, and in Shanghai under the rule of Wang Puppet, a game of agents is staged, and the brothers are duels. Our agent Ling Yunzhou finally broke through all difficulties and dangers, successfully transmitted intelligence in a dangerous environment, and made great contributions to the victory of the War of Resistance.
At present, there is not much information about the episodes, only a simple story line. However, this is not important, the important thing is that there is Liu Yunlong.
Over the years, every time a new spy war drama comes out, I always like to compare Liu Yunlong. However, after watching domestic spy war dramas for many years, I gradually found out. Perhaps, the only one who can surpass Liu Yunlong is himself.
Some time ago, before the broadcast of "Infernal", I also thought that this drama has a strong lineup, a gathering of big names, and has the potential to surpass Liu Yunlong.
However, it turned out that he was eventually slapped in the face. If a spy war drama wants to succeed, it is definitely not enough to rely on stacking actors, but also to be able to tell stories. The drama "Infernal" is a bad tone in the story, there are a lot of suspense in the series, and the reversals are also one after another, but many details are not rigorous enough.
The biggest feature of Liu Yunlong's spy war drama is that it burns the brain and the logic of the storyline is close, which can withstand repeated scrutiny.
This time, Liu Yunlong participated in "Dream Bund", hoping that he can live up to expectations and create brilliance again.
Two: Sun Honglei "Shocking Strings"
"Shocking Strings" is a traditional spy war drama.
The story of this drama takes place in Harbin in 1941, mainly revolving around the spy war experience of our agent Zhang Fan.
Harbin under the rule of the Japanese puppets, the undercurrent is surging. Due to the defection of a senior agent codenamed "Duke" on our side, our comrades on the intelligence front suffered huge losses and many lines were interrupted. The "Duke" colluded with Zhu He, the head of the enemy's special agents, and posed a great threat to our intelligence work.
In order to ensure the smooth and safe operation of our intelligence work, our side sent a team of soldiers to infiltrate Harbin to carry out the task of hoeing rape.
However, as soon as our squad entered Harbin, it was discovered and fell into the enemy's trap. At the end of the day, Zhang Fan used his identity to skillfully resolve the crisis and help our agents escape in time.
With the help of Zhang Fan, our agents successfully found out the Duke's true identity and completed the hoeing mission together.
However, although the mission was completed, Zhang Fan himself fell into a new crisis and was suspected by the enemy. In order to be able to continue to lurk, our agent Gu Nian accepted the task and lurked as Zhang Fan's wife, and the two worked together to complete the task together and meet the final victory together.
The plot of "Shocking Strings" is introduced, and I estimate that many viewers have found that the main plot line is very similar to "Cliff" and "Above the Cliff". are all pretending to be husband and wife sleeper agents, and they are all in Haierbin, and the male protagonist also has a dual identity.
If such a plot is played by other actors, I guess the response will be mediocre. But let Sun Honglei play, then the look and feel is different. In the early years, Sun Honglei participated in "Lurking", and his portrayal of our agent Yu Zecheng was trembling every day, like walking on thin ice, three-dimensional and expressive, which left a deep impression.
Previously, earlier, on the cast list of "Shocking Strings", there were Sun Honglei, Huang Lei and Jiang Yiyan, and Zhang Songwen's name once appeared. However, it is a pity that it was later refuted online by teacher Zhang Songwen.
Without Zhang Songwen, without the "strong combination" combination, it is somewhat disappointing, but the protagonist of this "Shocking Strings" from beginning to end is Sun Honglei, as long as he is there, the basic plate of "Shocking Strings" is still stable, so don't worry.
Sun Honglei, whether it is personal temperament or acting skills, is especially suitable for playing a secret agent, and he came to play "Shocking Strings", it should be said that he is like a tiger with wings.
Think of it, in the domestic spy war drama, "Lurking" starring Sun Honglei and Yao Chen has always been a classic in spy war dramas since its inception, so far, the Douban score is 9.4 points, in the minds of the audience, this drama has always been comparable to Liu Yunlong's "Dark Calculation" and "Kite".
This time, many years later, Sun Honglei participated in spy war dramas again, and it is worth looking forward to whether he can return to the peak.
Three: Zhang Yi, Dong Zijian, "Huan Yan"
Zhang Songwen has already appeared many times, and it is Zhang Yi's turn.
In "Crazy", Zhang Yi weakened Zhang Songwen, but this time he participated in the spy war drama "Huan Yan", and is expected to return to the peak.
The screenwriter and director of the drama "Huan Yan" are Xu Bing, and the main representative works are the spy war drama "Red" and "New World". Both dramas can be said to be household names. Among them, "Red" currently has a Douban score of 9.1 points, which is higher than Liu Yunlong's self-directed and self-acted spy war drama king "Kite".
And his "New World" with Sun Honglei and Zhang Luyi is not to mention, although the audience's reputation has fluctuated, but when it is broadcast, it is also a burst in ratings, which is not lower than the hit "Infernal" some time ago.
Xu Bing has rich experience in directing spy war dramas, and "Huan Yan" can find him as a director, I think it has been half successful.
The drama "Huan Yan" has a very interesting story.
Xu Tian, ah yes, or Xu Tian.
Xu Tian, 21, accepted his father's instructions to bring three gold bars from Nanyang to Shanghai and deliver the supplies to the Comintern. The road is far away, this young man experienced all kinds of bizarre setbacks with Lao Sun, Yu Yixiu, Zhang Jiayi and others, and finally completed the task.
In the process, their gold bars were stolen, robbed, and experienced spy battles, and almost died on the spot. But in the end, with stubborn faith, Xu Tian completed the task. At the moment of accomplishing the mission, the brilliant joy on the faces of the people was the joy of victory and their vision that they firmly believed that the revolution would triumph.
The story of "Huan Yan" is different from previous spy war dramas, a bit of road spy warfare, which is very worth looking forward to.
The story is interesting, the director is excellent, and the actors are not ambiguous. "Huan Yan" not only found Zhang Yi and Dong Zijian to partner as starring roles, but also found Zhang Luyi, Tong Liya, Liao Fan, Tian Yu, Yin Fang, Xu Juncong, Wu Xiaoliang and many other powerful big names to partner in supporting roles. From the starring to the supporting role, it can be said that he is a strong team with an incomparably strong lineup.
This cast, compared with "Infernal", seems to have not enough old drama bones, and there are no big coffees like Zhang Zhijian and Wang Zhiwen. However, in terms of the average strength of actors, the absolute strength of "Huan Yan" is far greater than that of Wufeng.
Even if it is a Zhang Yiding and a Jin Dong, "Huan Yan" also has Liao Fan, Tian Yu, Zhang Lu and other helpers, which cannot be described as strong.
The most anticipated thing is Zhang Yi, and it is no surprise that Zhang Yi will become the biggest attraction of "Huan Yan".
Four: Huang Xiaoming "Lurkers"
Among the dramas introduced in this article, "Lurker" starring Huang Xiaoming is the only one, which has long been scheduled for eight sets of CCTV. Moreover, it is also the drama that is most likely to meet everyone first in the second half of the year, and the dramas selected by CCTV are generally guaranteed in quality, and the broadcasts are very punctual.
As soon as the title of "Lurker" comes out, many viewers will definitely think of Sun Honglei's "Lurking". Speaking of which, this drama is indeed quite related to Sun Honglei's "Lurking". Not only are the titles similar, but there are also many similarities in the plot.
The story of "Lurkers" mainly revolves around the personal agent experience of our agent Fang Jiashu. Like "Infernal", the story of "Lurker" also takes place in Shanghai under the rule of Wang Puppet, and our agent Fang Jiashu is ordered to lurk the enemy No. 76. Moreover, Fang Jiashu is not only our agent, but also a sharp knife for our infiltration into the military system.
After an operation, Fang Jiashu's actions were suspected by the enemy and there was a risk of full exposure. In order to ensure that Fang Jiashu is not exposed, our side sent special agent Tao Yuling with two children to form a fake couple with Fang Jiashu to confuse the enemy's sight, and also to help him work better.
The enemy is very cunning and constantly identifies Fang Jiashu, but Fang Jiashu is smart enough to use his identity as a multiple agent to overcome dangers many times and get rid of the enemy's suspicions. In the end, with the cooperation of our comrades-in-arms, Fang Jiashu transmitted a large amount of important information and contributed his strength to the final victory of the War of Resistance.
After reading the plot introduction, everyone should understand the difference between "Lurker" and "Lurking". The main plots of the two dramas can really be said to be the same as one mold. are all pretending to be husband and wife, are all multiple spies, but the difference is that Tao Yuling, as the main assistant, has 2 more children than Wang Cuiping, played by Yao Chen in "Lurking".
One more person means a greater risk, 2 more children, and the dangers can be imagined.
In "Lurking", Wang Cuiping is light alone, and he can also rely on his excellent skills to get rid of the enemy's tracking. For Tao Yuling, with two children, it is even more inconvenient to move, and if you want to hide your identity, you can only rely on wisdom. In terms of the latent difficulty of the two dramas, "Lurker" is not only one more word in the title, but the plot can also be called an upgraded version of "Lurking".
I personally think that this change in "Lurkers" will definitely be the biggest attraction of this show, and everyone will wait and see.
In addition, in addition to the plot highlights, the cast of "Lurkers" is also full of highlights.
The play stars Huang Xiaoming and Jiang Xin, and the main supporting roles are Wan Qian, Wang Zhifei, Feng Hui, Wu Xiaoliang and so on. This cast, whether it is the protagonist or the supporting role, is a real powerhouse, and the acting should not be worried. In particular, the supporting role Wang Zhifei, with strong personal acting skills and good at playing villains, will inevitably become the focus of the entire drama.
And Huang Xiaoming, let alone that.
Not blowing or black, once Huang Xiaoming was also a popular idol-level actor, and his participation in "The Condor Heroes" and "New on the Beach" have set off a ratings boom. Unfortunately, today's Huang Xiaoming is a little silent, and his exposure is greatly reduced.
In recent years, Huang Xiaoming has also tried to participate in many domestic dramas, but the quality of his works is mediocre, and there are very few masterpieces that can really get his hands on. For the current Huang Xiaoming, he does not lack works, what is lacking is the works that can make him popular again and return to the peak.
Huang Xiaoming participated in "Lurkers", the theme is good, and at the same time there is a large platform support, and there are many powerful supporting roles to help. I personally hope that he can play well this time, reverse the current decline, and live up to expectations.
5: Zhang Songwen "Lonely Boat"
Zhang Songwen, Zhang Songwen again.
After performing "Crazy", I came to act in a spy war drama again. After the end of "Infernal" and "Thin Ice", other domestic spy war dramas have not moved, only "Lonely Boat" released the latest trailer, there is action, it proves that it is not far from the broadcast, which is one of the reasons why I introduced this drama at the finale.
The story of "Lonely Boat" is somewhat different from other spy war dramas, the protagonist Gu Yizhong is not only a young man, but also a talent who returned from studying abroad and studied architecture professionally. When the Anti-Japanese War broke out and the mountains and rivers were broken, he joined our camp and became an agent.
After the outbreak of the Anti-Japanese War, he ran around to organize and actively participate in the anti-Japanese rescue movement. However, during one event, he was framed and framed as a traitor to our side.
In the case of cornering, in order to prove himself, Gu Yizhong took the initiative to lurk the enemy and find out the truth.
After a series of treacherous struggles, Gu Yizhong, who was walking on the tip of the knife, finally found the traitor and proved himself. Subsequently, in the long-term incubation process, Gu Yizhong repeatedly transmitted important intelligence, and fought wits and courage with the leader of the enemy agent, Zhou Zhifei, and several times, escaped from death before hiding his identity.
In the end, the intelligence transmitted by Gu Yizhong provided great help to win the confrontation battle, and he also waited for the final victory.
From the perspective of plot introduction, the biggest attraction in the plot story of "Lonely Boat" should be the personal growth experience of the male protagonist Gu Yizhong, from a scholar to an agent, and the transformation can be imagined. And he not only has to face potential risks, but also find out the truth and prove himself, and the process is bound to be dangerous.
In addition, the starring roles of "Lonely Boat" are Zeng Shunxi, Zhang Songwen, Zhou Wei, Zhang Fengyi, Yin Xiaotian, Chen Duling, and Wang Yuwen. In this cast, there are young idols, young powerhouses, and drama bones like Zhang Songwen.
In this group of actors, there is no doubt that Zhang Songwen must be the focus of everyone's pursuit, and it is also one of the highlights of this play. Ordinary fishmonger, Zhang Songwen can act, dashing landlord Zhang Songwen can also play, and the black boss Zhang Songwen is even more brilliant.
This time, participating in the spy war drama, how Zhang Songwen will play the head of the secret service deserves special attention.
