Makes sense for Zhang Ruo Yun (The Fated General) and Zhang Tian Ai (Martial Universe) to want a break from wearing heavy costumes in period dramas, as they are back together as the new OTP for a modern drama called The Evolution of Our Love (爱情进化论). Will write more details when I get home from 12-hour shift, in the meanwhile, pretty pics from the booting ceremony! 😀
EDIT 8/7: Alrighty, so I did check out the synopsis and it does sound like Taiwanese drama In Time With You with Ariel Lin and Bolin Chen, like you guys pointed out, not that the production team said anything about a remake. Lol. China, give credit! Zhang Tian Ai plays a career woman with good conditions but is unfavored by men. While Zhang Ruo Yun plays a gentle and easy-going man who loves cooking, cleaning, and gardening. XD To describe their 15-year old friendship/relationship, it is stated, “We are lucky to be considered as each other’s half so that we turn toward each other. But the process of life helps us learn that: Love allows us to evolve into better people.”
Booting Ceremony 8/5:
Without Zhang Ruo Yun, our male lead, in attendance, below are the confirmed cast.
Zhang Tian Ai.
Xu Wei Zhou, our second male lead.
He Hong Shan.
Others included Zhao Dong Ze, Zhang Ling Xin, Liang Bao Ling.
Directed by An Zhu Jian (Go Lala Go) and written by Bao Qing (Meet Miss Anxiety the movie), The Evolution of Our Love plans to have 45 episodes.
