I just decided to start a new topic dedicated to my favorite chinese romantic writer: Qiong Yao. She's such a talented writer who has wrote over 50 novels that are mostly adapted into movies or dramas. I bet a lot people probably haven't heard of her but probably have watched "Princess Returning Pearls" aka "Huan Zhu Ge Ge" starring my favorite actress Vicki Zhao Wei at a point because that's the drama that introduced me to this great writer. Another of ther more famous series/drama is "Romance in the Rain" starring Vicki again w/Ruby Lin, Leo Ku, Alec Su...

Recently, Qiong Yao has produced/remade yet another one of her famous series called "Dreams Link" starring all new cast members such as Zhang Jia Ni, Alex Fong (handsome..lol), Qin Lan, and Bao Jian Feng. I have seen some trailers and various clips of this drama, and I am extremely eager to watch it soon..either online or on tv when I buy it. hehe

Anyways, I have recently started reading two of her novels. The first one that I read was coincidentally her first novel "Outside the Window" aka "Chuang Wai" and was moved so deeply by this novel...I cried throughout the novel( I might give a synopsis of this novel later) This first novel led Qiong Yao to fame in the early 1960's and was adapted into a movie version that starred Brigitte Lin Qing Xia and many other famous movie stars (including Qin Han--Brigitte's ex-lover). This movie also turned me into a fan of Brigitte Lin (truly beautiful and versatile actress) and inspired me to watch many of her early Qiong Yao movies (she has also acted in many Hong Kong movies later in the 80's but I have not yet watched them; I prefer her more soft/touching roles in her Qiong Yao movies more than her more "manly/wild" roles in the Hong Kong movies, but nevertheless, she has proved to be an extremely versatile actress..ranting lol). The second novel that I'm currently reading is called "Six Dreams" aka "Liu Ge Meng" and it also touched me deeply because each of the "dreams/mini stories" tells of a romantic yet tragic tale..I'm still attempting to finish it soon because I'm currently on the fourth dream story. Some people will probably have heard of these first three dreams because they have been adapted into series. 1) "Wan Jun" 2) "Mute Bride" aka "Ya Qi" 3) "Three Flowers" aka "San Duo Hua" (so tragic)

Okay, i'll stop writing too much now lol. I just want to know if there are any more Qiong Yao fans out there on crunchyroll maybe? hehe
If there are any, please share your favorite novel, movies, dramas of Qiong Yao, and I'll be happy to share many of my favorites also. I also love many of Qiong Yao's actors and actresses because many of them started out from her series/movies and ended up where they are now today. Ex: Vicki Zhao Wei--from the immature "Xiao Yan Zi" to the confident/mature/refined woman today...even though I still miss her Huan Zhu Ge Ge images/days...many fresh memories. Fans of Qiong Yao can share anything about her renowned actors and actresses also...I did write too much, sorry ppl for reading all this
