I give up. Hands up in the air for this remake of the highly angsty and twisted romance in the novel Summer’s Desire (泡沫之夏) written by Ming Xiao Xi. Barbie Hsu, Peter Ho, and Huang Xiao Ming starred in the drama adaptation back in 2010. Initially, I was pretty cautious of the movie remake because I never completed the drama version and wasn’t really fond of any of the characters (even if I did ship HARD). But the movie has completely disarmed me of my shiny armor by revealing yet another adorable music video, so positively filled with bubbles, gentleness, and some sweet loving between the three legs of our love triangle, played by new face Huang Can Can (as Yin Xia Mo), Hong Kong actor Him Law (as Ou Chen), and Chinese actor Jerry Yan Yu Hao (as Luo Xi).
I swear someone is trying their Jedi Mind Tricks on me. How could a dark and messed-up storyline like Summer’s Desire (泡沫之夏) be so light and fluffy and cute in the movie adaptation? Our OTP looks so happy and carefree that I found myself falling for their sweet smiles. This is wrong! Lol.
This is an odd turn-out. On the one hand, the new actress previously confirmed to play Yin Xia Mo in the movie adaptation of Ming Xiao Xi‘s novel, Summer’s Desire, is officially out and another new face is in. On the other other hand, the rumored boys to join are now confirmed in their respective roles. Unexpected. Well, let’s meet the full cast on their beautiful filming locations! Acting-wise, I’m very worried. They look so bubbly!
