Here it is! A feature that many of you have brought up to me since last year. Sorry that I kept delaying it. A drama discussion post for your raving and ranting needs, supported by our mascot, Riku! Don’t know how often I should make this post, since this type of post is effective when you guys interact and voice your opinion, positive or negative, about what you’re watching!
Don’t get fooled by the above photo. This is a straight-up melo drama. If wuxia, period, and modern rom-coms don’t fit your bill, here’s a melo for those itching to cry and pull out their hair this January. SAY WHAT? Yep. No breathing room at all. Be With You (不得不爱) is adapted from the novel Every Step Is Wrong, written by Lan Bai Se, the same author behind Loving Never Forgetting with Jerry Yan and Tong Li Ya. Wilber Pan and Xu Lu play our OTP and they are not nice people. *prays to my land lord that our female lead DOES actually inflict damage and pain*
I cannot do a selfie to save my life, how do ya’ll do it?!!!
Anyway, it’s time to check back with melo drama, Be With You, an adaptation of Every Step Is Wrong, written by Lan Bai Se, the same author behind Loving Never Forgetting with Jerry Yan and Tong Li Ya. I can’t believe the last time I mentioned this series was June of 2015! Time flew and now we’re just waiting for a broadcast date to see a mean CEO Wilber and a broody Xu Lu our for revenge.
This post has been sitting in my draft folder for months. Lol. I thought I posted it a while back ~ Old age. But yes, another novel-to-drama adaptation. The novel, Every Step Is Wrong, is written by Lan Bai Se, the same author behind Loving Never Forgetting with Jerry Yan and Tong Li Ya. For the drama version, the direct translation is Have To Love, which is coincidentally a song title sang by Wilber Pan, the chosen male lead, but the name Be With You has been printed on various promo materials so I’m sticking with that. I haven’t heard of Wilber since the head injury he sustained for his concert in 2012. His last drama is Endless Love but I’ll always remember him in Miss No Good with Rainie Yang (her screeching voice in the drama…-shivers-). The female lead, Xu Lu, is a face we are familiar with by now; Kimi Qiao’s virtual girlfriend on We Are In Love as well as her recent projects in Singles Villa and The Wife’s Lies.
