Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

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.

Concept Preview:

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.

    Oh geeze, why am I so depressed reading this? I love Wallace, but want SunYi with MaTian together. Wallace why u got to do this role, SunYi can be your daughter already? Please tell me SunYi will grow up to be played by a different actress!!!

    • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

      I’m depressed too. Sun Yi is the leading actress (Ray and her started filming way back in September). Lol. They will likely have a younger actress play her kiddie version. In the novel, the brother is only 2 years older than his sister.

    Wallace Chung as a 2nd fiddle? Chances are they will turn it around and make him main.

    What’s with all the melodrama recently? Where is a nice easy rom com to digest.

    So spoil me please…cos i wont be watching even with all the pretty males on screen.

    • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

      There is a mini fanwar about Wallace being second fiddle. Lol. But the second male lead gets the girl after all….

      ****SPOILERS*** HIGHLIGHT TO READ

      Female lead commits suicide and her husband joins her in the afterlife. Male lead reads the news of two bodies being found when he’s on the plane, not knowing who they are…

      • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

        Kappy, I don’t know how that is considered getting the girl.

        Please spoil more: Why would she do that?

        • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

          Why do I have a feeling they’re trying to trick us into thinking his the main so that fans of the novel who knows the story would be kept on their toes XD

        • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

          Lol!! How many second leads in dramaland get married and have kids with the main girl? Wallace might just be the first to do that! XD

          I don’t know much else cause I’m not interested in reading the twisted novel but there are more family secrets.

      • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

        please tell me why she decided to commit suicide ???

    Sorry I do like Wallace chung as an actor but can he romance someone more around his age? I know he looks good for his age but this makes me uncomfortable. Tbh the actress is around my age but still I just feel a bit weird out.

  5. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    omg nooooo why Ray why. I want him in a comedy as well. I have a bad feeling he ends up dying in this one too TT.TT. So tempted to read spoilers but its Ray so I want to watch. So conflicted because just from the novel reviews I don’t think i’ll survive to see the end of this drama :(((

  6. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    No Rayyyyy ? Must I go through with this (drama) for you lol?
    I’m wondering why they can’t pick a different actor to play the second male lead. Um I don’t know whether I should be happy Wallace gets the girl or not… the book ending 😐

  7. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    I need that piano piece score in the preview XD . Oh gosh ever since I’ve watched ice fantasy I fell in love with ma tianyu. But this one seems like a waterworks roller coaster. I’m not sure if i’m gutty enough for the ride. Hopefully the scriptwriters will give it a happy ending?

  8. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    Wallace as 2nd??? why he did take this role??? as a fan i feel so bad. But he might has his own reason. Not following him for some months and now he’s the 2nd fiddle… life changed a lot then. haha… i am just to busy following other younger actors and Shibasaki brothers. 😛

    not gonna watch this one. Better we have an ending like Memories of Bali. At least, no one get hurt #shrug

    After reading everything, there are just so many qn marks.

    1. Why would Wallace Chung do a second lead role, when he doesn’t need to? I’m pretty sure he’s overexposed at this point and already earning a fair bit of cash.

    2. And why is he in the middle of the poster when he’s the second male lead lol? I’m inclined to think that he’ll be billed as a guest star instead.

    3. Also, isn’t he at the age where these sort of roles should be, well, out of bounds already?

    4. Lastly, as per Kappy’s spoiler, why is the story so bloody screwed up? It’s just turning me off really. People’s imagination these days…

    • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

      The poster is themed per Wallace’s character, hence he’s in the middle. It says, “10 years with Liang Sheng, this love is heavenly blessed (Wallace’s character name, Tian You).

      The story is screwed up and I think it will be nothing like the novel once it’s translated onscreen.

  10. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    This drama will require tissue box ready by my side and a teddy bear to hug….

  11. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    The only reason why I would skip this drama is merely because of the storyline rather than Wallace’s decision to play the second fiddle. I don’t think it matters who plays who in this drama because you’ll still get 60 episodes of lots of crying and melodramatics. Plus, the story reminds me of Autumn in My Heart. They’re not blood-related siblings but fall in love anyway. One of them has cancer, there’s a second guy who’s wholly devoted to the main girl, etc.

    Being a fan of Wallace, I’m used to him picking questionable roles. Like what was he thinking when he chose Fu Hongxue and Qiao Feng? Probably the same thing he was thinking when he accepted this role. My only consolation, if any, is that he seems to be more of a guest star?

  12. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    With Wallace’s star power, he won’t be second fiddle, folks! This is the same situation as Bi Yao and Xue Qi from Chusen, all over again. Lol. But the problem is the script! Everyone will suffer, leads or not leads.

    Last month, Wallace is a guest star but as of now, I believe they will make him the other male lead. So dual male leads in the drama version. A guest star will cause more upset stomachs considered how his character marries and has 1 kid with the female lead. Either way, everyone is screwed. Let’s wait for more info.

    • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

      Productions really do the most stupid things. They cast Wallace Chung of all people to be the second lead, and before that changed the title of the drama to be based on the first male lead. That’s just asking for a fan war isn’t it? Wallace Chung doesn’t even seem to fit the character description and he is also a lot older than the female lead. Just an inexplicable decision, like they are deliberately asking for trouble.

      Plus they found such a convoluted, clichéd story to adapt from… That plot description is so not appealing. I wonder why the actors accepted their offers.

      • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

        stupid productions for sure!! love it!!

        these people need to understand that NOT all novels can be adapted onto the screen. reading the synopsis and then looking at the actors, they will surely change and BUTCHER the already horrible novel into something more mainstream for sure. what’s the point then???

        the novel title has the male lead name in it, kinda like the female lead asking for them not to be in pain any more. hence the confusion with wallace topping ma tian yu, but for sure he won’t play second fiddle with such star power. my poor ray.

        in any care, i won’t be watching!! lols

      • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

        The title of the drama is not changed. It is actually the title of the book. And I think the translator of the title from Chinese to English did a good job on the translation. In Chinese it is, 凉生,我们可不可以不忧伤?

        And Wallace is not playing second lead. Frankly, the producers does not want to be clear about this and it could be two leads. But actually, the story is focus on the girl. There are five books and in the first book, the story revolves round Liang Sheng and Jiang Sheng. For subsequent books, understand from readers, there are more on Tian You (played by Wallace). I did not read the books because too sad and like what some readers said, the writer overdo it. They are filming all 5 books into a 60 episode drama. Anyway, I am a fan of Ma Tian Yu. Hope I have cleared some doubts.

        • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

          thanks Kelly <3 that cleared some things up. Do you know who's the main male character in the book? Wow, 60 episodes?! i guess that means 12 episodes per book? that's still alot of episodes for a non ancient drama XD. Love it! Sounds like a big production?

        • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

          @ Biscoti, you’re confused again. Lol. Liang Sheng is the main male lead in the book, what Kelly is trying to say is the drama will most likely make the second male lead as the other male lead cause they can’t come out and say Wallace is playing second fiddle with this star power. Lol.

          Most dramas don’t follow the novels in terms of per episodes. They just dragggg our the storyline.

        • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

          Oh hahaha XD thanks for clearing that up XD

        • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

          Hello Frea and Biscoti, that is not what I meant.

          What I meant is that the producers did not want to mention so we have no idea. But from other sources many months ago, it seems that both characters are leads but in the poster, Wallace stands in the middle, so I guess even if both are leads, there will be an arrangement, else there will be problem in labeling whose name come after whose later in posters and the drama itself.

          In the book, each character has his own fans. I did not read the book so cannot express much opinions. Somehow every one has a certain weak point for the characters. Not sure how much the scriptwriter will change the story but in the book, it seems that Wallace’s character has a happy ending. Some people tie happy ending to main lead, so it is really up to individual interpretation

          But I guess, important is how each actor protrays his character. Wallace is good but if you all have not seen Tian Yu in action before, he is good too. At least so far, no one has thrown darts at him for bad portraying. So I am sort of looking forward to them but really I wonder if I can bear the “grief” in this story. I hope they don’t give us 59 episodes of grief and one episode of happiness.

        • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

          @Kelly, i think everyone is just repeating themselves in different words. wallace standing in the middle of the poster has been explained by kappy above – it is Wallace’s themed poster so he’s in the middle. other characters will get their chance in the middle.

          wallace’s character does not get a happy ending… kappy spoils the ending in one of the comments above. you can read it. he does get married to the female lead but ultimately…. read the spoilers. lols

          the producer isn’t saying it but we know wallace can’t be second lead to ma tian yu so it is likely a dual male leads in the drama version.

    • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

      Wow, if they keep with the novel plot-line but change it so Ray is the second lead, then darn, his probably going to be the most saddest second lead in history. By the sound of this, looks like the characters that end up dying are the ones that gets a “happy ending” –> end their suffering u know. the ones alive probably live in a world of suffering. Now I’m so curious. Can’t wait for more updates on this XD

      • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

        OMG. Laughing hard at your glass-half full scenario. Dying is better in this case. Lolol.

    • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

      Please don’t mention Chusen…that is one of the worst adaptions I’ve ever seen.

      Yeah and you’re rite, there is no way Wallace will be 2nd lead. I will have to prepare to watch my Tian Yu suffer unrequited love…again. one of these days he will get the girl!

      In a side note, i was so confused with people referring to Ray until I remembered his English name is Ray. Lol.

      • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

        If you want to watch Tian Yu get his girl, then watching the coming up 美人私房菜。 LOL

        Beauty’s Kitchen, that how is it interpreted.

  13. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    I’ll watch it for Ma Tian Yu lol. Seems like there’ll be lots of tears and angst T_T

    • 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

      Yes! Tokkita, take one for the team! LOL!! Seng-gyu!

  14. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    Kappy, I think your translation is good. Though “grief” seems a bit strong.

  15. 35 thoughts on “Liang Sheng Can We Not Be Laden With Grief confirms Wallace Chung, Ma Tian Yu, Sun Yi

    Pls dun let my Ray die! He already suffered a lot in Ice Fantasy. He deserves a happy ending here.ㅜㅜ
