Back to work again these two! Li Yi Tong might not have debut with a bang with The Legend of the Condor Heroes, but she has work back-to-back since then, no break in between, I believe. I’ll check out the synopsis when I get home from work but hopefully, this is just the undone version of her hair or else she and Luo Jin will be sporting the same look. Lol.
Is it the real life couple’s 5th collaboration? Tang Yan and Luo Jin are back at it in the new modern drama, The Way We Were. The story follows four students studying abroad, searching for intellect and love. Our female lead is a smart girl, pursuing a degree in law, unique in that she rises to the top based on her own efforts. The two leads meet and fall in love but a crisis comes their way. The hero is involved in exposing their dads’ criminal activity and our heroine is caught in between as a witness. Ultimately, the culprit is revealed and there’s a heavy price to pay. Everyone grows up in the process, understanding humanity and the value of life, returning to the path of justice.
Luo Jin is working hard this year, ain’t he? Dramas after dramas! He just wrapped up his modern drama with real-life girlfriend Tang Yan and now he’s confirming another modern drama with movie princess Zhou Dong Yu. Behind the Scenes (幕后之王) is about a media student (Zhou Dong Yu) who fosters a dream of becoming an outstanding producer. She aspires after a high-end producer (Luo Jin) and applies to become an intern at his production company. But his cold and unreasonable temper disappoints her. As her hopes diminish, she has an accident on live broadcast which leads to her losing her job and missing the time frame to submit her thesis. But it is the hero who jumps in to save the live broadcast and letting our heroine see another side to his personality. They slowly become closer, fighting side-by-side to overcome difficulties and eventually reaping the results of their hard labor and love.
It sounds….typical….. but with the charms of these two, maybe the drama will be more exciting in motion?
The first official trailer is dropped and My Story For You with Zheng Shuang and Luo Jin feels very different from your usual overly dramatic Chinese modern dramas. It’s hard for me to stomach 90% of modern Cdramas or should I say the mainstream ones with popular actors and actresses. It tends to drag on for a thousand of dog-blood years before reaching an abrupt end. Lol. Maybe because it’s based on a writer’s personal love story with his wife, so he was able to work with the team to create the atmosphere he wanted. I do like what I see ~
