Ready or not, here comes another melodrama dropped in your laps! Tears In Heaven is the English name for the drama adaptation of novel Variety Flowers At Seaside (剧海上繁花) written by Fei Wo Si Cun. After reading the summary, I now know why Miss Fei’s nickname is Stepmother. She’s very cruel to her characters, especially the female lead, hence I admit to not being a fan of her stories. But it seems like producers are drawn to them, adapting one after another. Some of her novels-to-dramas include Too Late to Say I Love You, Sealed With A Kiss, Chronicle of Life, and Siege in Fog. In the latest project, she has secured the lovely faces of Shawn Dou, Li Qin, and Zhang Yun Long to play out her melodrama. WHYYYYYYYY. I love these kids and so watching them suffer is ideally not the best but it will be a challenge for the boys as I have yet to see them emotionally challenged.
But after reading the drama synopsis, looks like changes have been made, so yay and nay for that…

The Drama Synopsis: Reporter Du Xiao Su (Li Qin) meets and falls in love with Shao Zhen Rong (Zhang Yun Long), but his mother is passionately against their love. During his medical trip to the mountains, our doctor dies in a mudslide. To forget the pain of his death, our heroine works and works until exhaustion sends her to the hospital. All her suffering is witnessed by Lei Yu Zheng (Shawn Dou) and he silently helps her from the side, which provokes the wrath of our resident second female lead (Wang Rui Zi), who makes our heroine’s life at work harder. More scheming happens to make Yu Zheng’s company fall and with the support of Xiao Su, he makes a comeback and their misunderstanding is eventually cleared up.
The drama synopsis simplifies everything… Now I’m conflicted. Can we change Shawn’s name first? XD And can we stop making the second female leads a jealous B all the time? Sigh.
