Love Like The Galaxy (星汉灿烂) is adapted from the novel written by Guan Xin Ze Luan (the same author for The Story of Ming Lan) and at the recent Tencent Annual Drama Line Up, they have confirmed Zhao Lu Si and Wu Lei. There’s a time-traveling element in this drama. Our heroine in the modern world grew up in a divorced family; she lives with her grandma, making her quite wild and unruly, she does what she wants. On chance, she time-travels to the past and becomes the youngest daughter of a General’s family. Due to war, her parents are constantly in battle, bringing along her three older brothers for years, leaving her behind with her grandma. When they finally return, years of estrangement creeps in but her father and brothers dote on her. Except for her mother, who is extremely strict with her and our girl fans the fire by fighting right back. Despite mom being a tough lady, going to war, etc, she expects the opposite of her daughter – to be gentle, to be well-read (actually, she just can’t read ancient Chinese because she’s from the modern world), to be graceful. Since she’s of marriage age when they return, they become concerned that their daughter’s personality doesn’t fit in with the rich, high-ranking sons of officials, so they think it’s safer to settle for a low-ranking family. However, their troublesome daughter repeatedly meets with several high-ranking men, getting engaged and breaking the engagement several times.
Cue harem story. Lol.
The first man she picks is not a man she loves, but a man she has reins over. He’s basically a puppy who does as requested by the heroine because he likes her. The second man she meets is our male lead – the emperor’s adopted son. He comes to believe that she really likes him but at the time she’s engaged to Guy #1, and so he waits for the engagement to break to swoop in. She is the most drawn to him because of his complicated background and righteousness. Guy #3 is the type that spars and criticizes her constantly whenever he opens his mouth but deep down he is nursing a big crush.
The novel is not translated yet atm.
A few netizens were posting about the growth of Wu Lei’s through his leading ladies connection with brother Yang Yang. Lol.
Yang Yang and Kiddo Wu Lei in The Whirlwind Girl (2015, 2016).
Wu Lei romances Dilireba in The Long Ballad.
Not to lose out, Yang Yang snatches Dilireba in You Are My Glory.
Yang Yang makes it even by also romancing Zhao Lu Si for Who Rules The World. Both ladies of The Long Ballad.
Wu Lei completes the circle of brotherhood by serenading Lu Si in Love Like The Galaxy. 😛
