Tang Yan’s See You Again begins filming, adds Yang Shuo

Adapted from the novel See You Again (時間都知道) written by Sui Hou Zhu, who also wrote Don’t Be So Proud with Vivian Sung and Tong Meng Shi. The story is similar to Suddenly Seventeen, with our 31-year-old heroine encountering an accident during a place ride and is transported back in time by 10 years where she meets her fiancé. From fans’ talk, it’s another husband-hunting game with fans losing their minds over a lot of absurd happenings, such as the death of the male lead (no worries, she will reunite with him peacefully in the future). Novel lovers, please spoil me about the ending.

Adding actor Yang Shuo (Ode To Joy) is quite a danger to my heart, he’s pretty smexy and charismatic!

Lay and Chen Dou Ling in Chinese Remake of Operation Love

Another case of remakes making its round across Asia. It’s the remake of Japanese drama Operation Love (プロポーズ大作戦) which aired in 2007 with Nagasawa Masami and Tomohisa Yamashita as leads. The Chinese remake stars EXO’s Lay (The Mystic Nine) and movie actress Chen Dou Ling (The Left Ear). I’ll say that I was worried with the news since neither impressed me with their first big acting project, but now the stills and the first trailer show them being adorably harmless and cute, I feel much better! It’s basically a second-chance at happily-ever-after with the hero being given the opportunity to travel back in time and right his regrets.

If only we all have Julian Cheung as our second-chance guardiam angel. Heh.

Webdrama: I Love My President Though He Is A Psycho

The title already suggests this is gonna be one dysfunctional story. The usual CEOs are crazy without the pyscho label. hehe. I Love My President Though He Is A Psycho (总裁在上我在下) is adapted from the same name novel written by Jiang Xiao Ya published in 2015. The storyline screams eeeeppp! so maybe there’s a hidden meaning somewhere? It follows our heroine, who is a third-rate cartoonist, and she’s captured by the hero – a rich CEO of an IT company. He asks her to return their child, which she “supposedly” gave birth to 3 years ago. When she responds no to his weird story (she doesn’t even know him!), he puts her under house arrest. O____O He uses every mean to force her to return his baby, and she eventually realizes he suffers from paranoia and some type of personality disorder. As he faces her gentleness and courage, he utilizes low-EQ techniques to pursue her. With the secret from three years ago and a surprised return of a friend, what will happen to the budding romance?

Love Bug Report: Zhang Yun Long and Wang Yi Fei vacation in Japan

Whoopsie, Yang Mi’s kids are falling in love. Reporters just posted pictures of Leon Zhang Yun Long and Faye Wang Yi Fei together on a date in Japan! You have to give it these reporters, managing to capture moments before all the masks and hat to the fully covered face of Yun Long. Wang Yi Fei is as cool as a cucumber, sporting no face mask at all. If you have watched Pretty Li Hui Zhen, you would remember her. 🙂

Let’s see what the kids have to say! hehe.

Ice Fantasy Destiny: The Spinoff, Nothing Gold Can Stay New Stills

Why a spinoff? Because 62 episodes isn’t enough to tell the story? Cdramas, we need to talk about the new lengths you guys are reaching for in terms of dragging out storylines! The next downside is removing the female lead and replacing her with a new face. That never ends well with original fans. Ice Fantasy Destiny (幻城凡世) is the modern spinoff starring Feng Shao Feng in a CEO role as he unlocks memories and powers of his Ice Prince past, with actress Zhang Yu Qi as the leading female, followed by little brother Ma Tian Yu and his lady love, Alina Zhang.
