Black and White

Vic Zhou finally, finally, finally has a new drama coming out; it’s been on my radius for a while ever since I first heard of it and went into mad ecstasy because a)my favorite Taiwanese actor is making a drama comeback b)he’s finally taking on another serious role after the brilliant and amazing Mars and c)the plot sounds to die for.  It’s finally premiering April 11 so I thought I’d make a post on it.  It’s called Black and White and is about hot cops is about two cops who are forced to team up together to take down the dark forces riddling their city.

  • Title: 痞子英雄 / Pi Zi Ying Xiong
  • English title: Black & White
  • Genre: Police, action
  • Broadcast network: PTS
  • Broadcast period: 2009-Apr-11 to 2009

Synopsis

Pi Zi and Ying Xiong are two cops who are as different as day and night. One does nothing except for drinking coffee and living a luxurious lifestyle while waiting for information from dubious sources to crack his cases. Another believes law and justice are the pillars of society and is constantly on the street catching criminals… a little overzealously for his superior’s liking. When a case brought these two top crime solvers together, sparks fly and a little light peeks into this dark city where the nation’s President is on friendly terms with the local mafia and people are killed while drinking milkshakes.

Upcoming dramas in 2009(mostly Taiwanese)

Cain and Abel – premiers February 18, stars So Ji-Sub, Han Ji-Min, and Chae Jung-ahn – I am really excited about this. I love So Ji-Sub from what I’ve seen so far, and I always like a show about doctors(and brothers) 🙂

Swallow the Sun – stars Lee Wan, story about two men who grow up as best friends and then become bitter rivals

Infernal Lover, starring Mike He, also known as Hua Wu Fei Xue – not sure when this will premier, they’re shooting it right now

Superstar Express, also known as To Get Her, starring Rainie Yang, premiers February 15

Black and White, starring Vic Zhou and Mark Chao, premiers April 11(Vic, unless you deliver a good performance in this drama, I’m giving up on you. I’m not kidding)

Full House 2 is happenning but there’s precious few details on it yet aside from the fact that it will premier in August

Starlit, starring Jerry Yan and Terri Kwan(read: girl who always plays Vic Zhou’s secondary girl), began airing yesterday, but I’m going to stay as far away from it as possible. I honestly crack up every time I read the casting list again. They managed to pair together two of the absolute worst actors in the whole industry – as the main leads of a drama. I like the dramas both Jerry and Terri are in. But they can’t act to save their lives, particularly Terri.

Extravagant Challenge– starring Jerry Yan and Ariel Lin(again, two actors I don’t particularly like), the drama has been postponed indefinitely

Triple, however, is possibly the drama I’m most excited about. Stars Min Hyo-Rin and…Kang Ji Hwan, I think, though to be honest I checked three different sources and they all listed a different actor! so who knows. It’s about figure skaters, however, which imo is something you can’t go wrong with(almost). Premiers May 2009.
