Ariel Lin and Zhang Bin Bin pair up for Legend of Huo Buo

This looks like a cute pairing already! Ariel Lin attended the booting ceremony for her ancient drama Legend of Huo Buo (小女花不弃) yesterday without the male lead, Zhang Bin Bin, in attendance. It’s based on a novel by Zhuang Zhuang and the story has a time-traveling element but we know what happens to that aspect once dramatised. Lol. A quick scan of the summary leaves me a little confused. Someone who has read the novel, please help me clarify! A pair of eloping lovers falls over a cliff and gets time-traveled to the past. She becomes a beggar (a role NOT unfamiliar to Ariel, Lol) while he takes over a position of authority, looks, and wealth. They meet each other 13 years later when she’s taken in by one of his scheming lackey to pretend to be his sister (?!) of a different mother. Because of her supposed mother’s death, their father grows crazy marrying many women in hopes of finding her face in them, causing HIS mother to die of heartache. So he thinks killing her would be a great revenge plan…. Of course, feelings don’t go his way…

I think I need to check out the novel.

Booting Ceremony 2/28:

She looks fresh and still youthful. How is that possible?!

    Yay to Zhang Bin Bin leading another historical drama. <3
    And Ariel looks so young lol. Makes it unbelievable that she has a 11 age difference with Vin. Glad she's back to filming more dramas.

    Not sure how I feel about the pairing right now but I definitely like the leads on their own. Just hoping the script doesn’t drag them down.

    She literally looks like she’s still in her 20’s…
    Overall I think she’s a decently good actress and ZBB’s pretty damn good, so even tho the pairing seems a little weird right now, I have good feelings about this.

    Very happy to see Bin Bin in more leading roles. He’s a very talented young actors but his company waste him in the miserable thankless second lead roles. Even in Pretty Li Huizhen where he stole the show they only gave him the role because the Korean idol they cast had to drop out last minute due to the Hallyu ban. He seems to get better roles outside the company: Love O2O, The King’s Woman, and his next two dramas where he is lead.

    Despite the 11 year age gap I think it will look OK because Bin Bin looks mature for his age and Ariel looks younger than she is.

    The plot sounds WTF but they usually do!

    She and Michelle Chen have babyfaces, making them look years younger without surgery.

    Zhang Binbin is literally a scene stealer in all his dramas.
    Even though his roles in Love O2O and Eternal Love were small, he managed to get people talking about him. And in the dramas as second lead, people like him over the male lead. I see a very bright future for him.

      He won recognition for his acting at the recent national drama awards.

      He needs to get better opportunities and I don’t know if he can in his company. He is really so talented though, and still so young, i hope it doesn’t go to waste

        Same thoughts here. He’s signed to Yang Mi’s company and I hope he doesn’t end up like Mao Zijun who was signed to Ruby Lin’s company for so long and didn’t really get good opportunities…

        Jay Walk is not that bad. Their artists actually gets “promoted” quite fast. Dilraba, Zhang Yunlong, Zhang Binbin and Li Xirui are now leading dramas on their own when 1-2 years ago, they were still supporting actors. Even Zhu Xudan and Gao Weiguang right now are promoted to second lead; ZXD is acting as Zhou Zhiruo in the Heavenly Dragon Saber remake and GWG is going to be in the new Candle in the Tomb series as second male lead.

        I think while ZBB will gets “forced” time to time to be star in Jay Walk’s dramas, he also gets the chance to take on companies outside of his project. It’s kind of a trade-off; without Jay Walk he probably won’t get all the opportunities. And they let their artists go out and work in other company’s dramas unlike Tangren and Huanrui lol. The only bad thing is they tend to typecast him.

          @ Anne: Good points about the trade-off especially Jaywalk allowing him to take on external productions unlike some studios. It’s a pity his own studio typecasts him especially as he doesn’t really have a choice in these internal productions but it has given him exposure and he is getting some great opportunities outside now.

          Jaywalk do promote most of their actors well.I think the studio always expected Zhang Yunlong to be the male breakout star and have positioned him as a lead since pretty much beginning and we’ve all seen the massive push Dilireba has received.

    The plot sounds like it’s gonna be so bad that it’s good. Really fond of ZBB so it’ll be great to see him in a drama where he gets the girl and she’s not Dilreba again.
    Plus there’s Ariel so I’m definitely looking forward to this drama.
