Yes! I’m still alive. It’s been two weeks since I last updated and I could tell you guys are slowing drifting away. Fine, just give me the bad Kaptain Award. 😉 School and clinical rotation are hogging all my time. It’s a beautiful Sunday so I’ll allow my bum to relax, stalk, and update. My sunshine girlcrush, Gui Gui, has recently signed up for a romantic comedy drama, based on a novel written by Song Xiao Jun, as the second lead. She’s starring opposite Show Luo, and the main heroine is played by Mao Jun Jie. I don’t recognize her but maybe you do. A press conference was held a few days ago, so here are some pictures.
The story revolves around Song Xiao Lei (Show Luo), an unemployed, honest and idealistic man who moves in with 3 pretty ladies with the help of his friend, Hua Qiang (Ao Quan), after treading through a mind-numbing break-up.
And the 3 roommates are played by (from left to right): Zheng Luo Qian, Mao Jun Jie, and Gui Gui, each bearing polar-opposite personality.
Mao Jun Jie as Hu Li Li, the sexy vixen in red. Man, the woman is a Hot Tamale! She’s cautious in love, having witnessed countless of parental discords which eventually led to her mother’s suicide. Her character arc involves ongoing conflicts with her father and how Song Xiao Lei will change her cynical views on men.
Zheng Luo Qian as Bai Jing Jing. A sharp-tongued fashionista.
Gui Gui plays a naive girl, Li Mei Dai, who ran away from her protective, rich father, and winds up in an apartment with 3 other people. I kinda of want Gui Gui to play darker roles, challenging her bright demeanor.
Gui Gui with Ao Quan, Show Luo’s fake rich friend in the drama.
And hello there Qi Ji! The villain in Cruel Romance. Nice to see you and your ab buddies here. LOL
He plays a gentle, kind uncle-type-of-guy. Is it me but the more I see this man, the more appealing he becomes? That height, that smirk, that body?! Time to hunt down Cuo Dian Yuan Yang!!
I like what I read so far about the characters. The roommate hijinks are gonna be fun, especially when these characters come from different backgrounds and history, each trying to hide their past and continue on with life. Hopefully, by living together, the story allows them to push each other’s buttons, which is a great way to break the ice and develop the characters. My expectations are not that high though, unless readers of the novel can tell me otherwise.
Director is Lin He Long (Hi My Sweetheart, Hot Shot, Devil Beside You) and the production plans to have 35 episodes.
