Woo! Our Pearl Princess has decided to take a break from her directing duties to star in an upcoming cdrama titled aptly as Tiger Mom Cat Dad. This marks her return after 2009’s cdrama A Woman’s Epic. Playing the squeaky husband is none other than film actor, Tong Da Wei.
The drama is loosely based on a controversial novel, Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, by Amy Chua, highlighting the conflicting cultures of raising kids in America and China (or shall I add Asian Mothers in general?) But the drama version will most likely focus on comedy more than anything, with the obvious hint in the name of Cat Daddy. I don’t recognize the main actor, though, but he’s been in a few dramas, the latest being Longmen Express.
But I do wonder why Vicki’s drama partners are rarely the popular ones. I really, really want to see her filming opposite Huang Xiao Ming, her number 1 fanboy. And it would be a comical transformation for him as an actor too, from badass sword wielder in Cruel Romance to subservient, fearful husband. But sigh….this dream pairing….
Anyway, onto more merry news. It was Vicki’s birthday 3 days ago and guess who posted nostalgic messages on their weibos? Ruby Lin and Leo Ku cling their wine glasses, congratulating their old friend.
Leo: “Dear Vicki, Happy Birthday! Ruby and I toast this glass to you! The next goal, the four of us reuniting!” And he tagged Ruby Lin, Vicki Zhao, and Alec Su. Catch his drift??
Ruby: “YA…My dear friend, Happy Birthday! I hope you’re always happy and at peace. Really, really miss you! [Love You] [Love you]!”
Well, if you didn’t catch Leo’s drift, he was referring to the nostalgic drama, Romance In The Rain, in which, the four of them starred as the main leads. Because of his message, fans are swarming with ideas about the possibility of a sequel. Nooooooooooooooooooooo. I watched RITR when I was 10 or 11, and I liked it. But when I tried to rewatch, it was painful; luckily the fast forward button was at my service. It’s a lovely drama no doubt, but it suffers from draggy plots. The drama could easily finish at 30 episodes or less but it continued to drag out unnecessary scenes and I gave up. However, I completely adore the soundtrack. Not many writers can compose poetic and romantic lyrics like Qiong Yao. Plus, there are many memorable scenes that stuck with me, years and years later, that I still remember distinctively. Maybe I’ll write a post about this drama later….
And did you know that Vicki and Alec have been participating in China’s Got Talent 2014 as judges? Watch below for two funny segments. A trip down memory lane!
Taking the dialogue out of context. heh.
At 2:46, Vicki sings of the songs in Huan Zhu Ge Ge.
Han Xiang’s dance.
