Wow, another Tiny Times franchise pretty boy, Jiang Chao, stepping up to the plate…but for a messy mess mess. Apparently, Korean actor Kim Tae Hwan has just been replaced with Jiang Chao in the upcoming modern drama, Fox Fall In Love (previously known as Lying Girlfriend, 狐狸的夏天), alongside actress Seven Tan Song Yun. No specific reason was given, leaving theorists to think it’s the result of China’s recent intent on restricting and banning of Korean-Chinese co-productions and its stars. What do I have to say about this…. Politics should stay out of the showbiz world.
Two birds with one stone baby! The production team has announced on weibo that there will indeed be a Season 2 of popular series My Amazing Boyfriend (我的奇妙男友). However, there is no news of whether they will keep the main OTP/same actors. It would be crazy not to invite Janice Wu back. That is unthinkable. I still haven’t continued after my episode 1 recap so can’t say much about Kim Tae Hwan. But let’s hope that both will be returning. 😀
Janice might be my new favorite thing. Oh, who am I kidding, she has stolen most of our hearts in My Sunshine. But in here, she’s allowed to shine as the main lead and she does take up center stage without hesitation. And I love the ongoing metas throughout the episode, describing her character as second-lead material when she’s the lead of her own series. Ha! If everyone sees their life story as such, maybe we would have less heartbreaks in this world.
I don’t know who named this show, but that person is dead wrong. It should’ve been called My Adorable Girlfriend instead because just look at Janice Wu Qian! She’s the answer to every cold and heartless rich male species! In any case, this modern drama is touted to be China’s answer to the popular Korean series with Kim Hubby, My Love from the Star. My Wonderful Boyfriend (我的奇妙男友) stars Janice as the rising starlet and Korean actor Kim Tae Hwan as the emotionless mutant undead from centuries before. Watch out, flower boys, she’s out to get ya’ll. I’m not familiar with this actor but he’s seriously channeling Zhang Han’s vibes!
The long trailer was released two days ago and I uploaded it at the end of the post. Janice slays, is all. =D
