Well, filming started a while back but they are holding the opening ceremony today In New York (also the drama title, pun intended!) Beside Li Yi Feng and Maggie Jiang as the leads, we have George Hu and Jiang Meng Jie as well. With In New York (在纽约), Li Yi Feng finally returns to modern dramaland after three years in ancient land. He will be playing a full-of-character lawyer who was raised in New York and lives strictly to uphold justice for the lower-class people. Then one day he meets a fashion designer who came all the way across the world with dreams of becoming the top dog in the said industry. It’s a story of hopeful dreams and bitter reality slaps (my own words, lol) that today’s youths can relate to. Jiang Meng Jie plays assistant and best friend to our heroine and George Hu will round out the character playing a gentleman in New York. While other cast members already missed the food back home, George is reminiscing of his past childhood being raised in New York and all.
Nowadays when I open any news sites, I literally gulp at the amount of news coverage. China is humongous, tv and film productions roll in and out all day every day. How to cover them all…. *goes to work*
Included in this batch is Lay‘s Operation Love, Yan Kuan‘s Love and Passion, Wang Mei Ren‘s SCI, Wu Chun‘s Martial Universe, Ying Er’s Legend of the Ancient Sword 2, Raymond Lam‘s Rule The World, and Jiang Jin Fu‘s Lightning.
I miss George on my screen but it looks like he’s determined to remain there for he’s in projects I have no desires to watch. I can’t do Taiwanese dailies. Too long for my fish attention span. Happiness Meets Rainbow is his upcoming Chinese drama. The name makes me giggle: Happiness Meets Rainbow equals Unicorns in my book. Lol. It follows the sole bread winner of a family (Yedda Chen Yan Fei) as she juggles the responsibilities of putting food on the table and the games involved with the three men she encounters. Three men again??! Okay. Even though her educational background isn’t high, she’s described as cool, kind, and brave (er, those characteristics do not go along with education, mmmkay). Upon returning from study abroad, her fiancé (Tang Chen Yu) quickly ends their marriage, leaving her with a sick son to care for. She then meets architect Du Fan (George Hu) and the two fall in love. But then something happens and it tears them apart. They meet again years later and eventually end up as a couple.
I wrote about this movie way back in April and the production dropped a trailer some weeks ago. Used to be known as Family in the Wind (my translation), it is now officially called Where the Wind Settles, a film that follows the lives of two friends as they struggle during war times to build and maintain a family. Tony Yang takes center stage and would be old and sorrowful about leaving his wife and child behind before he meets his son years later in the form of Mason Lee. While our George Hu is not the main lead, he should have a decent amount of screen time being the best friend.
