Yay! Our bubbly girl is back! Wu Qian has just confirmed her lead role in the upcoming modern drama I Don’t Like This World, I Only Like You (我不喜欢这世界，我只喜欢你) based on the short and sweet novel written by Qiao Yi (Joey), where the story is basically her own story with her husband, written in short, interesting anecdotes from the time they meet in school, how they get separated, reunited, and finally married. She’s a bubbly and optimistic person while he’s the cold on the outside (poisonous tongue to boot) and warm in the inside.
I was preparing for bed until I saw the onslaught of updates on news sites. Turns out it’s Qixi Festival aka Chinese Valentine’s Day! Drama productions release new stills to celebrate the annual meeting of two (tragic) lovers, the tale of Zhi Nu and Niu Lang’s forbidden love as the cowherd and weaver girl in Chinese mythology. I’m sure we have at least watched one adaptation of this story.
You might drown in the stills so I focus mostly on ancient dramas….for now. Lol.
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*
The Brightest Star in the Sky (夜空中最闪亮的星) is an upcoming modern drama about the entertainment industry, led by Huang Zi Tao and Janice Wu Qian. It’s essentially a love story between the assistant and the star, how they grow to understand and guide each other toward their dream. Tao plays an arrogant, unruly idol singer who’s hard to manage and Janice plays his assistant, and it’s her mission to transform his unmanageable personality, correcting his shortcomings and making him a true star. Janice can’t escape the EXO boys, for real! Lol. Tao will also be writing the songs featured in the drama, double working as an actor and song-writer.
Another young coupling. Janice Wu Qian (Fighter of the Destiny) and Zheng Ye Cheng (Hua Jiang Hu Zhi Bu Liang Ren) pair up for upcoming period drama called An Oriental Odyssey (盛唐幻夜) about solving cases, making friends, and saving the world? All the good things youngsters do back then before violent video games were invented. Lol! (Sorry, gotta jab at my brothers here!)
