LOL. This girl is unstoppable! Most hard-working this year!
Adapted from the novel written by Ye Luo Wu Xin, Qiyi describes the story: It tells the dual love story of scientist Yang Lanhang (Jasper Liu) and Bai Lingling (Zhou Yu Tong) in the virtual and real world. The two met on the Internet in their early years. After Yang Lanhang returned to China, he was admitted to T University as a doctoral student. Unexpectedly, he ran into Bai Lingling, the “friend online” he was thinking of, and disrupted her carefully prepared thesis defense. In order to make up for it and to pursue Bai Lingling smoothly, Yang Lanhang continued to become a friend online to solve Bai Lingling on the one hand, and arranged Bai Lingling into the laboratory on the other hand. The misunderstanding between Bai Lingling and Yang Lanhang gradually resolved, and the two fought side by side, tackling tough issues, and sympathized with each other.
Lover or Stranger (陌生的恋人) is described as a “romantic thriller that tells a suspenseful story about a violinist named Luo Qian Yi. Luo lost her memory in an accident right before marrying her fiancé Huo You Ze. In the attempt to restore her memory, Luo uncovers many secrets of hers and falls in love with Huo You Ze once again.”
Fall In Love With A Scientist (当爱情遇上科学家) with Jasper Liu and Zhou Yu Tong wrapped up filming after 79 days. Adapted from the novel written by Ye Luo Wu Xin, the story follows our heroine’s confusing romance with two guys but he is really just one person. She meets him first as her online friend, supporting and developing feelings (while he’s living in the US) for a long while. Abandoning his bright future, he returns to China, hoping to finally meet her, but she has finally given up on this “online romance” thinking it’s better to live in reality. She blacklists his username in their chatroom. They meet again at a university and he’s now known as a black bellied scientist teaching as a professor, considered a dream man for all the female students. As she spends more time with her professor, learning, doing experiments, her feelings for him grow, rendering her a confused mess – does she still like her online friend? or has her love for her professor grown far more deeper? She finally meets up with her online friend and confronts her feelings for her professor. Same man. Lol. But their teacher-student relationship is frowned upon in society and she quits school, deciding to go study abroad in Japan. And it is there that they resolve all their pent-up feelings over the years.
Love Is All (师爷请自重) is an ancient romcom based on the novel written by a familiar name in Jiu Xiao Qi (My Mr. Mermaid, Skate Into Love) starring Zhang Ruo Nan (Cry Me a Sad River) and Zhang Hao Wei (Joy Of Life). She is a quirky, wealthy miss who frequently quarrels with the county magistrate, our main guy. Using their brains, the two team up to solve cases. Hmm, that is the shortest baidu synopsis I have seen in a while. The author has written quite a lot of light-hearted comedies which mostly translated well onscreen with positive reception. Hoping this is the same!
Trying a new feature since I see fans always asking is this or that drama worth checking out? If you’re watching the new modern vampire drama Can Not Hug You with Xing Zhao Lin and Zhang Yu Xi, let us what you think: the goods and the bads! It begins airing today 11/20.
I feel like this is the perfect premise for a Kdrama (skinship alert!), maybe they will remake it next since it’s based on a Korean comics, unTouchable, illustrated by massstar. Can Not Hug You stars Xing Zhao Lin (The Eternal Love) and Zhang Yu Xi (My Little Princess) as the main OTP. Our heroine’s a beautiful modern day vampire who survives by absorbing energy through touching other human beings and he’s the gorgeous germaphobe who just moves in next door. Perfect setup for a modern day rom-com.
Upcoming youth drama, The Big Boss (班长大人), is adapted from manhua of the same name illustrated by Chen Lan and Chen Qian. It puts young stars Huang Jun Jie (Fox in the Screen) and Li Kai Xin (Solaso Bistro) back in students uniforms, because yunno that’s the time period we miss the most. Lol. As always they are polar opposites and have known each other since childhood.
