Are you ready for Go Go Squid with Li Xian and Yang Zi this July?

Go Go Squid or Stewed Squid With Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a sweet novel written by Mo Bao Fei Bao. On the other hand, the story doesn’t seem up to their acting caliber, described as a gentle and an easy read, some comments even go as far as saying it’s forgettable after a hearty laugh, but likable characters and setups. The heroine is described as a genius 19-year old student with high IQ and low EQ, who is also a famous anime cosplay person and sings well. She’s struck by love at first sight with the male lead, who is a game genius in the e-sports world and never pays attention to the girls.

Go Go Squid begins airing on July 9th!

    I’m ready for this drama! Will be good to see Yang Zi fall in love with no heartbreak lol. She looks uber cute here and oh gosh Li Xian when he smiles XD

    The novel was pretty short and sweet without much ups and downs for the two leads. Given the length of the drama, I hope all the characters are more developed. Especially the team (liking them already from the previews/MV), hope they get proper subplots.

      Heh they’ll probably develop the other character more too. Like Appledog (? I forgot her name? the really cool female captain), his cousin (the one who has a crush on appledog?), and Team Solo? I’m not sure if they’ll include bits of the prequel to lengthen it or something? I definitely have NOT read the prequels so I know nothing about that other than bits of what was teased in Stewed Squid, but either way I think this’ll be good because in general I think MBFB is choosey with selling her novel rights for adaptations considering it’s taken so long for her first adaptation. (My fav with always be Beautiful Bones bc I read it at the right time and it really spoke to me and the prose was so gorgeous. I will forever reference the fact that I wrote about it in my personal statement for college applications so….)

        I haven’t read the prequels either haha but yes the drama seems promising regardless.

        Oh wow that’s really cool that you wrote about Beautiful Bones for your college application! I’ve only listened to the audio drama ^_^; The only other MBFB novel I’ve read is Yong An Melody which I really loved and if she wrote more novels with an ancient/historical setting I would gladly read them all.

    I read all the prequels plus this one just to know what’s it about. How’s that for preparation? Lol
    This actually is the weakest among three…but at least it gave closure to LiXian’s character. Lots of loveydovey scenes so that should go well with viewers looking for 狗粮

      Hot dang, Maymay! A lot of preparations indeed!! XD

    Yeah, the book is cute but forgettable. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that the female lead is a Mary Sue (a 19-year-old academic genius AND a really popular cover-singer/cosplayer). I hope the drama adaptation gives her character more depth and not make her excessively childish. But I’m excited for Li Xian!

    I’m not familiar with the novel, but the trailer looks so cute and charming! I admit that Yang Zi has yet to win me over so I’m mainly excited about Li Xian as the male lead. *fingers crossed*

    The acting of the supporting characters is so awkward lol.
    Only Yang Zi was somewhat decent (even though she made Tong Nian look like a “sha bai tian”. I thought Li Xian would do better but I don’t get his charm in the drama.
    Sorely disappointed after watching three episodes. Maybe I was expecting too much since I see people comparing it to Love O2O.

    I am enjoy the drama and watching for each episode each day. The male and female leads have great chemistry. Li Xian is great in the role.I binge read the novel online in one night and the show follows closely to the book. It helps that the scriptwriter is also the author of the book. It is a 10 in my book ,especially with the drama that are out now. I need a light fluffy drama for the summer.

    Cute drama that’s worth the watch to me. Fluffy and cute <3 Yang Zi is so adorable haha! Idk but I don't really like Li Xian's portrayal of Gun, feels like he is angry most of the time idk. But he and YZ do have that chemistry which I love. I skipped a lot of the side characters part so yah.. haha!
