Previously known as We Are Young, Something Just Like This (青春创世纪) is a modern drama starring Wu Jin Yan and Huang Jing Yu. Our heroine’s parents filed for divorce when she was a child and she was sent to live with their friend (like foster parents?), where she befriends our male lead (the son). The two kids with completely different personality bond over the course of their childhood. As an adult, she gets a job at an e-commerce company and he deems it as the next economic investment and buys it, becoming her boss. They both slowly recognize how complex the work is by overcoming difficulties and challenges, together and separately.
Here’s a long compilation of teasers and trailers released at various events this past week such as the iQiYi iJoy and Tencent video conference. Sorry, I can’t physically make 20+ separate posts for each of them. I think I have written about the majority before so it’s nothing new. Just a peek from different online platforms for what’s coming up next for them.
I did not expect that in my lifetime there would be a global pandemic happening. It is – still is, very tough. Working in a major hospital, I was very fortunate to have a job through Covid but there were definitely some selfish moments where I just wanted to stay home and stay away from the hospital, where protocols and procedures keep changing every single day as we learned more things about the virus. Colleagues falling sick and hospital dispatching some of us to different areas, sometimes unrelated to our job; some smaller hospitals were sending my co-workers to work at the morgue. >.<”
I don’t know what to expect from these dramas but maybe all we need is a little thing called hope to keep us moving forward. Having this blog and some of you guys to chat with has always been the anchor of my sanity. So thank-you for that! Stay healthy, stay informed, stay connected, and stay calm! We are in this together.
Love Designer (幸福触手可及) is a modern drama adapted from the novel written by Ai Xiao Tu featuring the constant snarkings between our fashion designer female lead and e-commerce company leader male lead. They are caught in a lawsuit and must now work together to get out unscathed.
Dear Uniform (亲爱的戎装) is a modern drama adapted from the novel written by Zhe Zhi Ma Yi, so it’s not a remake of hit Korean TV series, Descendants of the Sun. It stars Huang Jing Yu as a military officer describes like an ice mountain and Li Qin plays a gentle military medic. Our male lead doesn’t care about romance or anything else and is basically 100% driven by work. Our female lead has been hurt by love before and she’s the pearl in her parents’ hands (they’re wealthy, and she doesn’t want others to be affected by her status). But she can stand on her own (whew). However, her decision to be a doctor in the military angers her dad and he refuses to acknowledge her for a short period. Mom is the softer one and helps her out with one “last favor” by asking her friend for help on finding a living place. Turns out, the friend lets our heroine move into the house where her son stays when he’s not living in the military dorms. Hehe. The mothers totally planted this seed! How did they meet? She’s showering (in his fancy bathroom!) when she hears the door creaks. And that is their first impression. HEHE. They begin to get close when she has a bad night after bumping into her ex-boyfriend and our hero agrees to be her ears for the night. Soon, she ends up saving one of his comrades, and our male lead begins to look at our gentle, sunny doctor in a new light. Their love story is described as gentle but does not lack sweetness and passion. From reviews, the second male lead is equally if not more complex than our male lead, given his circumstance and situation. Ohhhh. I shouldn’t spoil all the fun right? Ok.
Huang Jing Yu is probably one of the few actors who looks like he can pack a punch in our batch of oh-so-pretty young actors. I’m excited for this collaboration!
