It took you a second to recognize Hu Ge‘s face right? I thought it was Tony Yang at first glance. He’s definitely enjoying the mustache more than he thought. Weren’t you sad seeing him trying so hard to walk in Sound of the Desert? Well, in this new inspirational youth drama, he’s a soccer coach for a bunch of newbies! He gets to walk the talk, kick the ball, and just shimmer in glorious daylight.
Leading lady is Maggie Jiang.
At some point, he becomes a cheerleader with the girls too. 😛
- I’m a little disappointed that the younger cast members don’t really stand out. Three boys are highlighted in the order of appearance: Niu Chun Feng, Wang Yi Lin, and Li Si Cheng. This is the perfect type of drama to introduce new bloods into the TV industry and I would think any director would cast some striking personality into the mix. Let’s hope their acting is A-okay!
- The tall actor who will be competing against Hu Ge for the lady’s love is Li Zi Feng, a Chinese super model-turned-actor. He stands at 187cm and was born in 1986. Ladies, are you awake to stake your claim on this hot man? Look at this, this, and this! And he has such a cute smile too. Whoops, too late, he’s mine now. MUHAHA!!
- I have a soft spot for soccer – the best thing I did in middle school was joining the soccer team, before babysitting my little bros took priority and I was asked to de-bus. 🙁 So I’m definitely tuning in for this one! Plus, sports dramas aren’t that common.
- Tentative release date in 2015 and it will run for 30 episodes. Writing is Bai Yi Cong (Feng Yun Legend, Trappde).
