Chen Xiang scores first leading role in I’m Not An Agent/Spy

Say it with me: YESHHHHHHHHHHHH!! Chen Xiang finally graduated from the brooding second male leads to first male lead in upcoming idol republican drama, I’m Not An Agent/Spy (我不是特工). Playing his leading lady is rising new face Su Qing (Yun Zhong Ge). Phew. I’m so happy for him. When they asked if he would be returning to another season of Taekwondo Girl, he said most likely not because there isn’t a part 3 and it would depend on where they’re taking his character. Anyway, that’s not all the good news! We sometimes forget he started out as a singer and is currently promoting his mini-album called Whirlwind. He wrote 6 of the 10 songs!

Booting Ceremony for I’m Not An Agent on October 27th. The story follows the struggles of young people during chaotic times against their fate. Our male lead is cold on the outside, always carrying the dream of joining the army to help his country while our heroine is kind and prefers to live a peaceful life. A fire breaks out where they live and the love birds are separated for 10 years. When they meet again, they are coerced to work for the Kuomintang party. They eventually make the switch to the Communist Party.

    I thought he played the lead for that one drama he did with Korean actress Kim So Eun??? Maye he was second lead, I’m not sure since I didn’t watch it lol. But I guess that one don’t count since it was more of a Korean drama/idol drama. Happy for him though. It’s always nice to see talented second lead(s) moving up to main lead. I just wish in Kdramaland they would do the same. It makes me mad when idols take all the lead roles when there are actual talented second lead/underrated actors that could do better justice for the given role.

      I also didn’t watch that webdrama! XD

      Agreed wholeheartedly. These second lead actors have done their time, let them move on!

    I lol’ed reading the title of this Republican drama “I’m Not An Agent” — how apt! :)))) (and of course they will have the “magical conversion to communism” element as well :D)

    Anyway, while I’m not a fan yet of Mr. Chen, I’m happy for him getting a lead role. Echoing others, yes, please have him leading a drama with Rachel!

      I was waiting for someone to bring that magical conversion up. Why you be reading my mind, lenje! Keke

      Big LOL at ur comment “magical conversion to communism”.
      Lately we have been bombarded with the communist spy Story ; rookie agent, sparrow., disguisers.
      It’s getting soo repetitive. We need a fresh storyline ?

        Disguiser was a big hit, so it’s predictable there will be others jumping on the bandwagon with a similar theme.

        Hahaha… @Serene, the credit should be given to @nell123 who coined the “magical conversion” in the chatbox :))) I just loved it it so much that I stole it! 😉

        While Disguiser was a big hit, I don’t think that inspired Sparrow and Rookie Agent Rouge as both were already in the work when Disguiser was aired. Maybe for this “I’m Not Agent” drama (or other similar ones just starting up) it did, although I can imagine when it is broadcast people may say it’s tailcoatting the success of Sparrow and Rookie 🙂

    wow i didnt know who you were refering to when i saw the first pic. Didnt recognise him. I oso forgot his name- my bad. I’ve seen him in 3 other dramas as the second lead and always thought to myself-this guy is good but why hasnt he had a leading role yet.
    I oso find his good likes to be the waif manga type- his jawbone remind me of Lee Joon Gi.
    Yay for him… finally.

      I think he appeared in one episode of Happy Camp with Lee Jun Ki because everyone thought they look alike. Heh.

      • 15 thoughts on “Chen Xiang scores first leading role in I’m Not An Agent/Spy

        omg you are right he looks like Lee Jun Ki ! I was trying to figure out who he looks like. I’m surprised he isn’t getting more lead roles since he’s so good looking and acts decent for a singer.

        Didn’t know that. Would dig out the Ep to watch. Thx
