Interesting and refreshing pairing. Always a plus when they get new faces to star in popular remakes. In this case, it’s the highly-buzzed Korean series of 2015, Kill Me Heal Me, with Ji Sung and Hwang Jung Eum, where our hero has seven personalities and our heroine as the first-year psychiatric resident trying to help him gain back control as a whole. Actor Zhang Yi San (Yu Zui, Escape Route) and Cai Wen Jing (So Young, The Interns) have been announced as our sizzling OTP. The new adaptation changes its name to Seven of Me (七个我) and for the longest time after Huace announced its plan to remake the series, a lot of names were thrown out to play the sophisticated hero, but I think we have landed a dark horse in Yi Shan. He has this off-kilter feel to me. Lol.
Pictures of the Original Kdrama:
Though I didn’t finish Kill Me, I’m looking forward to see Nana again. LOL!
Funny how immediately after his casting announcement, netizens dug up Yi San’s info. Nothing scandalous, only noting that he’s good friend with another child actress that we have come to know and love – Andy Yang Zi. Both are graduates from Beijing Film Academy, along with Shawn Dou, Zhou Dong Yu, Zheng Shuang, Jing Tian and Cai Wen Jing, etc.
Yang Zi and Yi San started out in the family sitcom Home With Kids back in 2005 (!!) and continued to star in a couple of more dramas together, gaining fans who wish they would be a couple in real life. Check out their awkward teenage selves below. So cute! I can’t believe all the kids I used to watch have grown up now… Time…
Fine young things! Looks like they are planning another sequel to Home With Kids and Yi Shan is considering to support but Andy might be busy with Ode 2.
