Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

Nice. The trailer proves to be the opposite of what I expected. Instead of humorous and wacky situations, we have political intrigues and mysterious murders to solve in the first gay Chinese ancient drama, Love Is More Than A Word (识汝不识丁[Shi Ru Bu Shi Ding]), adapted from the novel written by Su You Bing.

**Fixed Link to Trailer & BTS

Stills:

Our OTP. The stoic-looking kid is played by Yan Zi Dong.  A cold, intelligent, and well-educated lawyer. He starts out with indifferent feelings towards the new magistrate (Danny Jiang Zi Le) in town but through solving many cases together, they gradually develop feelings. What he doesn’t know: the new magistrate is illiterate, and his post was bought through money. Described as naive and well-meaning, he only likes to stare at pretty boys. Me and you both, kiddo! Throughout their journey, he also unveils secrets behind his father’s death. A love triangle is formed when his old lover appears half-way into the story.

    What the……I love bromance but this is totally gay, the guys look very very serious! Good thing that in reality this is only a comedy and not something for real.

    Ladies, you’re out! Guys drama about to start now!

    • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

      Lol. You weren’t here for the last post of this drama right Yoyo?? Its also stated above as the first gay ancient series from china! Be excited! Hahaha. I personally like that new faces are trying out these daring roles compared to popular faces always doing the same safe roles.

      • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

        wait I don’t get it, so it is a real drama about gays and not meant for humor?
        No problem with people trying new things, but the pix was intense…very intense because the guys are so convincingly serious in love.

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          It’s a real drama Yoyo. 🙂

          Have you seen Heroin? The make-out scenes are intense and this is coming from someone who only watched cuts on youtube. Lol.

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          Not only make-out scenes, Kap. The bed scene is really gross and that’s when I stop watching the drama LoL.

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          I didn’t want to scare Yoyo away Abu! She’s innocent! XD

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          @abugemilang It was gross? XD I forgot what I first felt when I watched it cos I ended up really liking both of the actors in Heroin. They are straight as hell in real life though (too bad, teehee).

      • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

        @Tusu: Ofc it was gross, unless if it is 2 girls cuddling up like that LoL.

    The costuming and set designs are really beautiful, but so many of the faces look like wax. Photoshopping and filtering is getting way out of control.

  3. 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

    Wow, the trailer is intense! I didn’t expect this level of intensity from the stills from before!

    Looking forward to the new faces! The wedding is beautiful.

    Sonce we have our first gay drama I expect a lesbian drama by next year.

    All them pretty girls to look at with their pretty clothes and accessories.

  5. 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

    I have nothing against gay or lesbian dramas/movies but I do feel uncomfortable watching straight guys and ladies pretending to be gay or gays pretending to be straight. It just doesn’t sit right with me. If it’s a drama or movie starring a character who is homosexual, then they should get a homosexual actor or actress to act in it, especially when there are sexual or romantic scenes in it – regardless of whether they are new faces or not. I think we should create opportunities for gay actors and actresses as I think this a genre that will be in demand in the near future. That’s just my humble opinion.

    • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

      Maybe the actors are indeed gay, how would you know, hehe. But I guess it’s still kind of ‘dangerous’ in China. I don’t think homosexuality is really that well-perceived there, man.

      • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

        Leslie Cheung was very popular in China. He was invited to participate in 1997 handover ceremonies in Beijing where he shared the stage with Gong Li and Faye Wong.
        Transgender Jin Xing has a very highly rated talk show in China. She openly talks about her past as a male dancer and that hasn’t stopped her career.

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          They may be exceptions since they are very very popular and famous. I heard Leslie did not come out until his parents passed away because he did not want to hurt or shock them. But honestly, the only way to truly know is if they are caught with the same sex partner, they openly admit it, etc.. Or else none of us know for sure. I heard that Taiwanese actor and singer Aaron Yan is gay because there reports that he was intimate with males, but who knows if they are rumors or not? But he never straight out anything so who knows? However, I can understand why many do not come out because besides the fans, they must think about their families especially if they are the only son and are expected to carry on the bloodline.

    • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

      Honestly,maybe some if the actors are gay or even bisexual so who knows if they are truly straight? Many are afraid to come out if they are because being gay,bi or anything other than heterosexual is considered not normal and is an “illness” in traditional societies like China and other Asian countries.

    • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

      I agree with the other commenter here. The actors could be Gay, but he didn’t coming out. I believe Thai and Taiwan is the only 2 in Asia that more open to LGBT.

      Heterosexuals Liu Ye and Hu Jun costarred as gay lovers in around 2003. Was shocked to see a full-frontal nude scene of Liu, who won best actor award at the Golden Horse Awards for his role.

      Another straight actor Tony Leung paired up with Leslie Cheung for some convincing intimate scenes in that acclaimed Wang Karwai film.

    Shit, because of Heroin, I’m checking out other gay dramas, lol. But I guess not every thing works…

    With the ban they did on Heroin, I’m not sure what they would do if this got popular.

    • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

      I actually heard that Heroin was banned due to political reasons and other deeper reasons not just because of the gay theme. Therefore, there is still hope for these other bromance series. But that would make sense because if these BL type series were all truly banned then why do they keep on making them if they know that they will not be allowed to air them?

      • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

        Even it is banned for political, they won’t allow obvious scene like make-out and bed scene just like in Heroine.

      • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

        I sorta knew about the ‘deeper’ reasons that were never mentioned but could never get my head around it – as in why?? The actors of another drama (same author), Love Attack, ain’t even treated like this. It really does make more sense if all such dramas were banned.

  7. 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

    I actually heard both of the leads in Heroin are bi so who knows? If so, then we can see why they are so convincing in their roles.

    • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

      @HeTieShou – well i heard that one of the leads in Heroin “declared” that he’s straight lol. i truly think both of them are gay, and wonder why they didn’t just come out of the closet already, it might work to their advantage since there legions of gay novel fangirls in china and overseas, also these days people aren’t harsh like they used to, so why not just come out and live their life, and still able to maintain tons of fans since they’re famous from a gay drama anyway.

      • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

        Really? Which one? I am guessing it is Huang Jing Yu declared that he is straight right? I heard Xu Wei Zhou did not flat out deny that he was bi when asked about it so he may be bi. I also thought Huang Jing Yu was straight but then heard he was bi. I agree with you that if they are gay or bi, people would be more supportive of them if they came out of the closet since they are famous for a gay drama anyways. Well actors lie a lot so it is not shocking if he declares to be straight but then is not. It is better to be true to yourself or else you’d be unhappy later on in life. I feel if fans love and support you they will regardless of your sexual preference. Maybe it is their families that they are worried about?

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          Yeah, it’s Huang Jing Yu (think his nickname is “dolphin”, wonder how they come up w/ that nickname for him lol).
          from what i observed, i think many asian actors are gay but they just afraid to come out for the fear of losing fans, but the fact is fangirls are quiet supportive these days, they even ship straight guys like Hu ge and Wallace Huo lol. but i agree w/ what u said, maybe what’s left is their fear that family won’t accept them, but really people are quiet open mind these days anyway, their family might eventually comes to term w/ their true sexuality.
          but the thing that annoy me the most these days is fangirls are really going overboard with the whole shipping, they see boys love in every single drama lol, from asian to american drama (and movies), i think they forgot that for men, there’s this thing called “bromance”, which is totally diff from gay love.

          just wonder, are you the same HeTieShou, who often comments on jaynestars?

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          Ok I had a feeling it was him and he honestly seems like the one that is most bent on declaring that he is straight but I am not sure until I heard he is bi which is a possibility. Yes, fans are more open these days so it may not be a fear of losing fans but the reaction from their families especially if they are the only boy/child. What makes you think he is gay besides the fact that he acted in a gay drama? With Xu Wei Zhou they based it on his responses from interviews and his behavior from childhood.

          I was just reading an interview about Chinese cosplayer Xiao Xiao Bai and one of his responses made me wonder about his sexuality. They asked him what traits he looked for in women and he said that whatever perference you had is ok as long as it suits you and then he changed the topic. That really made me wonder about his sexual preference when he gave such a wierd answer. I can tell you I asked my cousin( who is truly gay) where his girlfriend was and he answered no where to be found. Now I can see why…

          With Hu Ge and Wallace, I think fans were just teasing them so it is nothing serious. I know what you mean about shipping couples in series but that is not shocking since they do it with straight couples all the time. Yes, the crazy fans go overboard so it is nothing new.

          Yes, it is me the same poster at Jaynestars but have not been posting due to time and forgot my password so need to look for it. Nice to see you here!

    Kappy: i wonder, is there any rumor or any news at all about making those chinese girl loves novel into a drama or movie? lol.
    all these boy loves chinese drama are coming out left and right, and yet i haven’t heard of one single lesbian novel make its way into drama or movie…sigh…even in the gay world, women is discriminated lol. funny how i have no problem seeing two girls kissing but seeing two guys making out kinda weird me out lol, i can’t stand watching it for like even a second lol.

    • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

      I remember seeing one or two projects with girls, but they weren’t anything spectacular like the ones with the boys. Lol. I’ll pay more attention next time.

      Would love to see Li Ying participate in these projects, since she likes kissing girls. Lol.

      • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

        lol, i didn’t know Li Ying likes kissing girls!!! they should totally get Ada Choi to play Li Ying lesbian partner lol, ooohhh i can totally imagine a script for them already, Ada as a CEO and Li Ying as an innocent new employee at the company hahaha. that’s the main idea, you can continue the story Kappy hahaha
        on the second note, dawn it, i just remembered Ada strong religious beliefs and her refusal to participate in “sensitive” project like this..sigh…oh dawn it lol.

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          She does! She likes kissing her girlfriends a lot. LOL.

          Now that’s evil KK! XD I would like a sexy actress to kiss her. Can’t think of one! Arg!

        • 32 thoughts on “Love Is More Than A Word drops trailer and reveals wedding

          Hahaha! I like that script so far, Ada is really good at being fierce and strong to be a boss. But hopefully I still prefer it to be a small comedic side of the story only though, since this world is made of yin and yang, we can’t really make the opposite gender go absent right? I can’t really bear to toy actors too far in playing things I just think will be cool for me but it kind of makes no meaning in the real world, I got to jumble in both gender to make me more comfortable. My conservative taste.
