Oh. I like the sound of this. Might be just the drama to pique a good amount of interest. And of course, I really like Vivian Sung since her heartfelt performance in Our Times. Playing her male lead is a new face, one that we have seen before in variety show, Grade One, and recently as a minor character in Li Yi Feng’s The Legend of Chusen. He’s Tong Meng Shi. Don’t Be So Proud (别那么骄傲) is a novel written by Sui Hou Zhu (随侯珠) and it’s a soul-swapping of our OTP. The idea isn’t new and we have had a few dramas with the same premise, the most popular being Kdrama Secret Garden. Our female lead’s a dance major with a gluttony for food while he’s a top, aloof student at the University next door. During a vacation between the two group of friends, they end up swapping souls when she falls in the water and he’s struck by lightning. What I like in this scenario is she actually enjoys the swap – relishing in his body while he gapes in horror at the way she treats his masculine self – stomping of feet like a little girl. LOL! Plus, the boy she likes for a long time is his roommate (along with two other entertaining roommates)!
This is gonna be so much fun!!
Booting Ceremony 4/24/16:
I’m so used to Vivian with short, spunky hair that it was hard to recognize her in long, flowing locks. What a transformation. It’s been so long since I see our female lead with long hair, or maybe I have been watching too many Twdramas, and their tendency to give the ladies short bobs frustrates me.
Tong Meng Shi, our male lead who wasn’t present at the ceremony. His side profile reminds me a tad of Dylan Kuo. And that’s a good resemblance. 😉
Vivian with the producer, Angie Chai. Yep, she’s the producer of the highly successful You Are The Apple of My Eye and the upcoming The Tenants Downstairs.
Angie with the writer Miss Sui Hou Zhu! Surprised that writers are showing up at booting ceremony nowadays. Ding Mo showed up at Yu Zheng’s booting for Memory Lost too.
Actresses Li Xin Ran, Angie, and Wang Chang Chang.
Hou Yan Xi, Angie, Vivian, and Guan Hong. I’m liking our orangutan-inspired look on that kid. hehehe!
Liu Qian Yu, Angie Chai, Vivian Sung, Li Xin Ran.
The novel is being translated by the lovely ladies over at Fanatical. Enjoy reading. Hope the cast somewhat fits your imagination!
