First Peek: Meeting Love On A Trip with Chen Xiao and Jing Tian, Go Go Squid with Yang Zi and Li Xian

So sorry for the lack of updates guys, I was so tired every day after work. I would read the news and my head would droop onto my desk like it’s a thousand pounds. Someone is riding up the age ladder. Lol.

Li Xian and Yang Zi confirm drama Go Go Squid (Stewed Squid With Honey)

YAY! Both of them have been in ancient dramaland for a while now so I welcome them back to the modern world. But I did hope it was with a different storyline. Hu Yi Tian and Janice Wu were rumored for this project for a while but today the production has just confirmed the leads to be Li Xian (Tientsin Mystic) and Yang Zi (Heavy Sweetness Ash-like Frost). Go Go Squid or Stewed Squid With Honey (蜜汁炖鱿鱼) is a sweet novel written by Mo Bao Fei Bao. On the other hand, the story doesn’t seem up to their acting caliber, described as a gentle and an easy read, some comments even go as far as saying it’s forgettable after a hearty laugh, but likable characters and setups. The heroine is described as a genius 19-year old student with high IQ and low EQ, who is also a famous anime cosplay person and sings well. She’s struck by love at first sight with the male lead, who is a game genius in the e-sports world and never pays attention to the girls.

I feel like these types of story could be given to rookie actors while these two could go for more challenging roles. Who knows, maybe they need a break?

My Story For You: Zheng Shuang goes through thick and thin with Luo Jin

The first official trailer is dropped and My Story For You with Zheng Shuang and Luo Jin feels very different from your usual overly dramatic Chinese modern dramas.

It tends to drag on for a thousand of dog-blood years before reaching an abrupt end. Lol. Maybe because it’s based on a writer’s personal love story with his wife, so he was able to work with the team to create the atmosphere he wanted. I do like what I see ~
