Looks like we will be seeing Janine a few times this year. Drama-wise, she’s in Advisors Alliance, Midnight Diner, Tribes and Empires, and Ru Yi. All big dramas. Female Butler (女管家) follows Janine’s character who loses her family at the age of two and is raised by an adopted dad and taught the arts of medicine. Before he passes away, he gives her the important mission of avenging for her family, thus begins her journey as a lowly servant in the Du family household, meeting the significant other of her life. As she uncovers secrets of the family, she becomes attached to them. Not before long, her identity is exposed and she’s kicked out of the family. When the Du Family falls into chaos, she’s determined to help them get back on their feet, becoming a capable female butler in the region.
Variety show I Want To Meet You (我想见到你) is an another show with actors on board. It features Alec Su, Jing Tian, Mao Zi Jun, Li Hong Yi (Master Devil Do Not Kiss Me), and Ma Wen Yuan. They will be making short trips all around fulfilling small requests on people’s wish list while experiencing life on a different scale. They are being touted as the “warm energy group.” I still don’t know what this show is about. Lol. All I know is I like these people and it’s nice seeing Mao Zi Jun out of the angsty, jealous roles he’s always cast in.
It is happening! First shooting of variety show 72 Floors of Mystery (七十二层奇楼) with their sole female member, Zhao Li Ying, has commenced! I was really worried about our girl but the fan-taken photos assured me that she looks happy and at ease. If this were Running Man, I would put my trust in Yoo Jae Suk’s awesome MC skills, but it’s not, so I can only hope, everything goes smoothly for everyone ~ The other male members include Simon Yam, Kris Wu, Leo Wu Lei, Wowkie Zhang, and Wang Xiao Li.
