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.
