Happy friday drifters of dramaland. This kappy got a new job! Starting work next monday. This past week was supposed to be my vacation week but the migration to a new home took a handful of my hair away…. Lol. Life… is never the way you planned it out.
After three months of filming, Liu Ye and Ariel Lin‘s modern drama, Old Boy (老男孩) has wrapped up! The stills of the romance look very sweet and mature, so here’s to hoping for a logical story with great directing, since we don’t have to worry about the acting here!
Dang, no place for young kids in this drama! An adult show about middle-aged women and their struggles in society. In The First Half of My Life (我的前半生), Ma Yi Li plays a married housewife in her mid thirties and her life turns upside down when her husband wants a divorce. She doesn’t have any work experience and to top it off, she also has a young kid to support, what will life be like for her? In comes Jin Dong‘s character, a perfect gentleman, a businessman who recently return to Shanghai to manage his business. He’s a busy man with a quality lifestyle and after meeting her, he’s thrown into her messy life. Both of their lives have been peaceful and calm, how will a fateful meeting challenge and reward them in the latter half of their lives?
I waited to publish this post, hoping the press conference (today!) would drop a trailer! But nothing! Na-da! WHAA? It’s airing next week!
Both strong actors returning to dramaland in upcoming modern drama, Oldboy (老男孩). I just laughed so hard thinking about Liu Ye’s face when he saw the drama title. HA. Liu Ye‘s last drama was All Quiet in Peking in 2014 and Ariel Lin‘s last drama was in 2013 with Prince of Lan Ling. He will put on a pilot uniform for the role ~
