=======> ♦ Yang Mi always has a knack for picking her male lead and up next, she’s romancing Bai Yu in a medical drama about the intensive care unit, Thank-You Doctor (谢谢你医生). As the two deal with life, love, and loss they eventually fall in love. Of course, they do!
=======> ♦ Bai Lu continues to dip her feet in the modern romance world, this time romancing Luo Yun Xi in the novel-to-drama adaptation called Love Is Sweet (半是蜜糖半是伤). She plays a young, idealistic woman who holds a master’s degree in both economics and psychology and is a little sensitive to tears. After her father’s death, she enters an investment banking company to follow his wishes and that is where she’s reunited with her childhood-friend-now-Deputy-general-manager played by Luo Yuo Xi. While she’s happy to see him, she finds him a changed person, now opposing her at every corner, and known for his poisonous tongue. I’m reading some comments from novel readers and it looks like HE is in love with HER, but she likes someone else, so he conspires to break them apart. HA. The English title of the drama is misleading too, as the literal translation is Half of Life is Honey, Half of Life is Hurt/Pain.
=======> ♦ Zhang Yu Xi looks like a live barbie doll at the filming ceremony for her new drama, Intense Love (韫色过浓), where she’s paired up with Ding Yu Xi. She plays an actress who lives in the center of attention wherever she goes and insists on remaining a sought-after bachelorette. Her parents have other ideas and lucky for them, she eventually meets the man she’s engaged to – a handsome, perfect doctor, played by Ding Yu Xi. I’m supposed to believe his young face is a doctor?! But if Kdrama can do it, it’s fair that Cdrama can to. Lol.
=======> ♦ Hu Bing Qing‘s upcoming project is novel-turned-drama Insect Totem (虫图腾) with the adorable Zhang Ming En. It’s similar to The Lost Tomb. He is from a line of doctors, and she’s the descendant of the Five Great Families of the Chong tribe. As they follow the trail leading to Chong treasures, they discover secrets of the past.
=======> ♦ Cheng Yi is pairing up next with Ying Er in Deep Lurk (迷局破之深潜). This is a republican spy drama with the focus on resistance during the Japanese invasion. Ying Er always gives me the feeling that she’s much older than her male lead, she’s only 30! CY is 29.
