First Love Again (循环初恋) is adapted from the novel written by DTT.
Qiyi describes the story: The probability of them meeting was one in a billion. In a parallel time and space, the cold and unapproachable top student Ye You Ning (Patrick Shih) encounters the bright and sunny Xia Wen Xi (Chen Hao Yu). Through an unexpected opportunity, Ye You Ning of the present connects with Xia Wen Xi from the year 2006. Their encounter leads to a sweet romance and a chance to relive high school, to meet old friends again and to experience the taste of first love.
I Don’t Want To Be Friends With You (我才不要和你做朋友呢) is a modern drama that features a time-traveling portion. Our female lead is a 17 years old high school student played by Zhuang Da Fei who grew up living with her single mom, played by Chen Hao Yu. For whatever reason we don’t know, she’s transported back in time and becomes classmate with her mom when she was 17 years old. This sound like Taiwanese drama Back to 1989 but we have a clearer purpose there on the importance of his trip back in time (still I dropped it! Lol.) I like that this time, it’s a mother-daughter duo. She learns about her mother’s bravery and sensibility, which helps solves the knots between them in the present.
The date June 3rd has been floating around for a while now among bloggers, but I only trust it when the production weibo stamps it on their posters (even then, things could go awry). Next monday, folks!
