A car-racing themed drama. It has the same name as Taiwanese drama Sonic Youth (極速青春) in 2002 with Chen Kun and Bolin Chen. I have seen posters with the simple title Speed. The story follows racing genius (Elvis Han Dong Jun) who goes against his father’s wishes and participates in the black market of car racing, hoping to prove his talents. During his journey he meets friends and rivals, and a love interest in international student played by Xu Lu. The dangers of life run parallel to the dangers on the racing field, and when one death breaks up the team, how will they move on?
Why do you look like that girl? The silly buffoon just wants to snuggle. Because the fancam trailer is grainy and ugly, we finally get an official trailer. Lol. Be prepared for the photo bomb session coming right up after the jump. So Young is the drama remake of the same film (based on a novel) directed by Vicki Zhao in 2013. The drama version has a new cast in Yang Le, Sebrina Chen, Ma Ke, and Zhang Dan Feng with plenty of episodes to tell its story, hopefully a more coherent and heartfelt one at that.
Last time we talked about the drama version of So Young, we only have three confirmed male actors, and now we have a full cast list! The leading and supporting ladies have been decided and I’m a little less enthused, mostly because of the way they chose to style our heroine. She looks like a bum. Lol.
Included is a low quality fancam trailer that I ripped from the press conference.
At this point, I won’t complain anymore because it’s useless. Expect to see a drama and movie version of every single project out there. Yep. Our Vicki Zhao Wei adapted the movie version with Han Geng, Mark Zhao, and Yang Zi Shan in 2013, based on the novel, To Our Youth that is Fading Away, written by Xin Yi Wu, released in 2007. To be honest, I did watch the movie version and it was shot beautifully… but that was it. It didn’t leave an impressionable memory on me. I also didn’t read the novel so the details might have been lost in the adaptation. *shrugs* What did you guys make of the movie? Story?
Can’t say I’m excited about the casting because Zhang Dan Feng deserves a lead role already!!
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. Why don’t you guys let this drama rest in peace. I’ve heard of the web/modern version before but couldn’t care less since it’s a total new cast, but now Ma Ke is reprising his role in modern garbs. BAH. I’m still confused though, is it a special episode or are they really continuing the story in modern setting, cause that’s just crazy. Tis too early for my brain!
I’m not watching this. No force on heaven and earth could convince me!
*NOTE: I have to head to work so this post will be short and sweet, just like me 🙂 . You guys can try to make sense and let me know.
