Yay! Our resident second male lead has moved on. You might remember Mao Zi Jun’s face in The Four, Chusen, Legend of the Dragon Pearl, etc. He has led before but this would be a major one after audience has recognized his face throughout last and this year.
Booting Ceremony 9/1:
Mao Zi Jun plays our hero, an 18-year-old (!!) kid who grew up in poverty and had to quit school to work and pay off his dad’s debts. He arrives in Shanghai and picks up odd jobs, later becoming a successful bartender. Thanks to his stubbornness, intelligence, and perseverance, his dream becomes bigger and he wants to establish his own coffee brand. He does achieve that dream but as business grows, the conflicts between his employees also grow, leading to damages and fallout of his business. Not submitting to defeat, he moves to Xuzhou and works hard to develop a food company into a national brand.
I’m sure somewhere in here the female lead fits, just don’t know where. Lol.
Others include Mou Xing, Ma Jing Han, Jiang Rui Jia, and Niu Ming Chen.
