Am I having amnesia? I published this post a few hours ago… but now I don’t see it no more? O___O
Anyway, one of Ma Ke’s projects now has an air date! March 24th! Reincarnation of the Superstar, or simply Revive, is adapted from the novel of the same name. Our Ma Ke better be extra careful because it looks like dark horse Joe Xu might steal the scene…. from the former scene stealer. 🙂
Quick Summary [Visit previous posts for more info]: The story follows new actor who is often looked down and bullied. When a scandal breaks out that he’s gay, he becomes distraught, leaving him vulnerable to the truck of doom in dramaland. He comes back with a new face [in the novel, his soul inhabits a new body], determined to see his dream come true – becoming a recognized star in the acting world. However, his secret threatens to spill at every turn, with friends and foes suspicious of his identity.
Viann Zhang as the queen of scandal.
Korean actress Han Chae Young. She has a little somethingsomething with his former face.

Just because you highlighted your hair, you think I don’t remember you, kiddo? Zheng Ye Cheng.
