    I’ve been waiting for this since forever.

    So is Mark not going to show his real hair in any of his work??? This is the second time he’s sporting a questionable hairstyle. I mean I can accept 3W3L since it’s wuxia/fantasy theme, but for goodness-sake this is a modern drama! Boy! Why?

    But on the other hand, I’m so happy to see him in more projects and having his name every where now. He truly deserves more recognition.

      this hairdo probably fits the character he’s playing. good actors/actresses should not be stuck on just looking like a pretty boy/girl in dramas.

    • 18 thoughts on “Huang Lei leads extensive cast in remake of Midnight Diner

      well, he’s showing his real hair in Black and White movies or series..in his other modern movies too such as First Time, Love 2012, Monga

      i think it depends on genre and character he’s playing for;)

    Woo stephy qi. She looks so pretty. What a huge cast, never heard of the story before. Will watch a few episode to see what it is about.

    OOOH I loved the J-drama of this!!! And of course there’s the man of the hour Mark, definitely going to be watching this for these two reasons <3

    Okay Mark may not have nice hair but he certainly has VERY NICE HANDS.

    Now before you go on calling me a creep with hand fetish, that was actually a trending weibo topic “Ye Hua has nice hands” when 3L3W was still ruining lives not too long ago.

    major fan of the original. looks like mark zhao is playing the jo odagiri role as local hobo — i’m fine with that.
    curious to see how huang lei pulls off the main role. felt kim seung-woo was great as master with his own touch in the k-remake.

  10. 18 thoughts on “Huang Lei leads extensive cast in remake of Midnight Diner

    HUANG LEI!! YES. I love the scar on his face. Like a scholar scarred for life!

    He’s solid actor so good positive thoughts for all the invited. Surprised to see how many Taiwanese actors though. WOW!

    I also like the K-version. Watching that show while eating was my habit haha… I couldnt imagine watching it without any food. I would be so damn hungry.

    Cant wait for this show.
