Chinese Midnight Diner: Mark Zhao and Ma Qian Yi’s moving performances

OH MY GAHHHH. It’s a beautiful sunday and I see this first thing in the morning! One of the quieter dramas that will also broadcast in June is the Chinese remake of Japanese drama Shinya Shokudo, which was also based on a Japanese manga series by Yarō Abe. Trailer for Mark Zhao‘s single parenthood has just been released and though he plays a mute father left behind with a baby girl after his wife (Stephy Qi Wei)’s departure, his eyes and smile speak volume about the pain and love he feels but cannot say. The little girl, child actress Ma Qian Yi, also brings in her A game.

This is too beautiful. T_______T

      The vibe is wrong. The diner looks fake.

    Never watched the Japanese version before but started with the Chinese one. The first episode by Mark Chao was amazingly touching! Very good acting by all actors. Definitely a tearjerker episode…
