Jeremy Tsui and Meng Zi Yi confirmed for novel-to-drama adaptation of The Times Spent in Pretense (Zao Zuo Shi Guang)

The Times Spent in Pretense (造作时光) is adapted from the novel written by Yue Xia Die Ying. The novel sounds lighthearted and zippy, with an adorable focus on family dynamics. Male lead is our Crown Prince – highly skilled in many areas, but he is lazy with an unpleasant personality. His moves/actions are often misconstrued by the Emperor and the subjects (they over-analyze, LOL). Female lead is from the House of Hua, a family known for their military accomplishments. She fights really well, is capable, unruly, and armed with a sharp tongue. However, she has a very odd dream. She wants to become known as the beautiful…..and sickly beauty, like…. Xi Shi. LOL. So she works hard towards creating an image of a delicate flower to the outsiders. The Emperor wants the two to get married and from that, a lot of hilarious moments arise.

This sounds oh-so-cute!

    One of my favourite authors<3 As long as the script is good I have no complains really. A Girl Like Me which was also adapted from 月下's novel left a bad impression on me. Just follow the novel!!!
