Okay, okay. I know I’m not the best translator. Lol. A salute to all translators out there cause some of these titles be long and poetic. The upcoming melodrama adapted from novel 凉生，我们可不可以不忧伤 (Liang Sheng Wo Men Ke Bu Ke Yi Bu You Shang) written by Le Xiao Mi has confirmed its main cast in Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi, Alan Yu Meng Long, and Zoey Meng Zi Yi. Our two young leads have been filming for a while now and it looks like it’s time for Wallace to jump in and scoop up the leading lady. Anyone up for a better title translation? 🙂
The important thing is the script and dare I say the author is very twisted and I’m kinda out. Lol. Which sucks because it’s Ray Ray and I want to see him in a happy role. Universe, why you do this to me?!
Quick Summary: She has always thought the greatest happiness in life is being by his side. Her name is Jiang Sheng (Sun Yi) and her older half-brother is Liang Sheng (Ma Tian Yu). Because of their family situation and hard life, little sister leans completely on her brother to live, only to develop feelings beyond her control. He also loves her and gives her the best of things but their love is against ethics and morals. Under the author’s penmanship, the love story is bright and calm, but contains the irony and hopelessness of life, giving Jiang Sheng the impression that her story is a funny one. Because she believes they are siblings, she hides and buries her feelings for Liang Sheng. Later on she meets our second/other male lead, Cheng Tian You (Wallace Chung) who has everything – looks, power, money. She eventually returns his devoted feelings, gets married and gets pregnant. Dun Dun Dun. Later, she discovers that her brother is sick. HE HAS CANCER (!!). She returns to his side because she wants to help him and then more secrets come out….
Ending? 2 deaths and a world of misery…. I won’t spoil…. unless you want me to. Lol.
Alan Yu plays Cheng Tian You’s brother, Cheng Tian En. Roy Wang Yuan and Jackson Wang Jun Kai play kiddie Liang Shen and Cheng Tian You, respectively.
Directed by Liu Jun Jie (My Sunshine), Liang Sheng, Can We Not Be Laden With Grief is still filming and will air on Hunan in 2017.
