Also known as Love Against the Light, which sounds more logical and natural off the tongue. It’s a mini web drama adapted from an internet novel and produced by both Yang Mi studios and Yu Zheng studios. I know we all adore Yumama in the dark corner of our room, but it’s nice to see stars that he has helped launch into household names investing in his projects now and then. As they say, drink the water and remember its source! The cast consists of mostly newbies and it’s good exposure for them who has had a few projects under their belt to reach for a wider audience range.
Dilraba Dilmurat is our main female lead. You might remember her from Swords of Legends, Beauty’s Maker, and currently starring alongside Tang Yan, Rain, and Luo Jin in Miss Diamond. She plays a rich girl who is murdered on the day she runs away from her wedding. She meets an angel immediately after and is given 7 days to find the culprit/reason behind her death. If she’s successful, she can have her life back.
With good friend played by Zang Hong Na. Is it me but we are seeing her everywhere as the girlfriend’s sidekick?
Main male lead. Name is Merxat (Beauty’s Maker). What a weird name. He’s the angel our heroine meets in the after life. Or at least that’s what he says he is.
Angel my butt! Those are fangs!
This is William Yang Xu Wen. Looks like he’s the antagonist. Handsome lad but his face is so small!
Another kiddo angel played by Zhang Yi Jie. He’s the baby of the group, born in 1999! BURRRRR!
- I find it funny that while our heroine looks like a rich spoiled brat when she’s alive, her spirit form looks harmless and innocent. Lol.
- Oh lordy, did you hear that slap? O_O I know it’s sound effect but that is loud.
- I know what you’re thinking. The premise reminds you of Kdrama 49 days. This is Yumama, in case you forgot.
- Backlight of Love has 11 episodes and premieres tomorrow: 2.2.15. Let me know how it goes!
