Yang Zi and Xu Kai is each other’s Best Choice Ever in upcoming modern drama

Best Choice Ever (承欢记) is adapted from the novel written by Yi Shu.

Synopsis from Tencent: Mai Chenghuan, a girl born in an ordinary family in Shanghai in the 1990s, is urged by her mother, Liu Wanyu, to discuss marriage with her boyfriend, Xin Jialiang. However, the affluent economic conditions of Xin’s family upset the originally equal emotional relationship. At the same time, Mai’s mother’s excessive interference in her daughter’s lifelong affairs accelerates the breakup between Mai Chenghuan and Xin Jialiang. Caught between filial piety and loyalty to oneself, Mai Chenghuan struggles. She gradually breaks free from her mother’s dominant care and becomes more focused and enterprising in her work. Mai Chenghuan’s transformation is recognized by her grandmother, who entrusts her with the important responsibility of managing the family’s most valued hotel business. Yao Zhiming, the grandson of the grandmother and a professional hotel manager, gradually understands and approves of Mai Chenghuan in their cooperation. They become work partners, advancing hand in hand. In their personal lives, Yao Zhiming is surrounded by the warmth beneath the fireworks of the Mai family, and his feelings for Mai Chenghuan gradually heat up. From “beneath Chenghuan’s knees” to “achieving self,” Mai Chenghuan has embarked on an extraordinary journey of growth that is uniquely her own.

Wow. I can’t believe it’s been two years since the last time I wrote about youth drama, The Left Ear (左耳). As a refresher, it’s adapted from a Chinese novel about teenage love and regrets written by Rao Xue Man. It was adapted before into a movie featuring Yang Yang and Sandra Ma in 2015. The drama version features a wagon of pretty faces and let’s hope for more emotional beats with depth and developments.

Cdrama: Fighter of the Destiny, Surgeons Episodes

Just to get it out officially (if you missed my other update) since I did cover Bai Bai He and her husband, Chen Yu Fan‘s news. They posted on weibo about it, announcing that they have been divorced since 2015 but didn’t announce the news to the public for the sake of their child. They apologize for causing suffering to both sides of the family and their kid. To focus on his son, Chen Yu Fan will leave showbiz for an indefinite amount of time. I’m glad everything is sorted out peacefully. It’s rare for both parties to be understanding and supportive. It was really them against the world for a few days.

With the gray clouds no longer over our heads, let’s move on to the first round of drama premieres!
