So I’m done being twelve but that doesn’t mean I’m happy with the bait-and-switch drama behind this project! The confusion and anger on the net was understandable. Zhu Yi Long and Song Yi are now playing the supporting characters in the novel adaptation of The Rhapsody Of A Summer Dream (夏梦狂诗曲 ) written by Jun Zi Yi Ze. Zhang Han plays producer and male lead. His female lead is none other Korean actress, Go Joon Hee (She Was Pretty). Such a cruel twist of fate. Instead of promoting their own supporting actors to first lead, the production team promotes Korea’s supporting actress to first lead. (nothing against Joon Hee, I like her). *side eye everyone with power real hard* I was and still am raging my fist in the air at this division of labor!
Synopsis: (I didn’t continue reading the novel so maybe Polaris would know more since she read more? Lol.) The story follows violinist genius (Go Joon Hee) who lost both of her parents at a young age and lives to seek revenge. For the longest time, music was her life and she started out following the footsteps of her dad. But now, every time she closes her eyes, she remembers the pool of blood forming around his head, and only wants to wear black while performing. After a betrayal that maimed her hand, she disappears and reappears five years later under a new identity, armed with a talented violinist under her teaching. She begins her revenge plan by getting close to an old friend (Zhang Han), second son of a large corporation, who has a talent in numbers and stock market. It looks like his family adopted her when she was younger and some jealousy emerged among the kids.
Press Conference Stills:
It’s interesting that he chose to become a producer and not a director (isn’t that more common?). Does that mean Mr. Zhang is loaded? Lol. His character has two brothers I think. Yi Long will play older bro and I think Andy will play the younger one.
Go Joon Hee, Our genuis violinist. Rumors are high that she signed with Zhang for three projects, kicking off her career in Mainland China.
My tragic couple. From the fans’ words, Song Yi will be playing the heroine’s rival, the hero’s sister. Don’t quote me yet, I need to watch the press conference or something to find out more.
Posting more pictures to alleviate
my your our pain. 🙁
Zhu Zi Xiao! Dude! I miss you love! I just have a soft spot for him ever since China’s Meteor Garden in 2009, which Zhang Han was the lead with Zheng Shuang. Ah.. Time. I’m still waiting for his drama with Li Ying to air…. as messed up as the plot sounds.
Surprised to see Andy Chen Yi in here as well.
First time acting as a producer, Zhang Han will be reuniting with the writers in charge of Boss & Me. The Rhapsody Of A Summer Dream plans to have 50 episodes and filming began this week.
