Here I am having a blast this summer and then comes this hellish title to put a damp on things. Lol. Rush to the Dead Summer (夏至未至) is the next Guo Jing Ming’s novel to be adapted into a tv series. A press conference is held today to introduce the cast and release some generic posters. The youthful story that spans the period of ten years focuses on friendship, alienation, and one ultimate betrayal that breaks the group of close friends, each going their own way and entering society. Despite growing up poor and kind, our heroine (Zheng Shuang) works hard and wins a scholarship into a grand secondary school (hmm? sounds familiar?) where she meets a talented painter-to-be (Cheney Chen) and his best friend (Bai Jing Ting). Of course, love blooms in more ways than one.
Press Conference Stills + Posters:
Bai Jing Ting. The sunny boy who changed to moody and quite after his mom’s death.
Chai Bi Yun.
Wang Yu Wen. New face as well.
Pang Han Chen.
Zheng He Hui Zi. She was in Fifteen Years of Migratory Birds.
Xia Zi Tong. A rookie movie actress.
Cheney Chen looking good. Not sure about his acting… Anyone? His drama Decoded did well so he’s rising.
Zheng Shuang looks cute and sweet when I don’t have to see her legs. Short hair suits her well.
Her legs…. o_o
Bai Jing Ting.
With Zheng He Hui Zi.
With Guo Jing Ming, director and author of the book…. My eyes keep going lower…lower…
Um, there should be a law that prohibits Zheng Shuang from standing next to Guo Jing Ming. Are they trying to win the battle of best, terrifying legs?
For once, I think the supporting cast looks way healthier than the main. Lol.
