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 ~
Unlike the first trailer, the teasers this time have all the melo parts from the modern drama The Way We Were reuniting Tang Yan and Luo Jin for their Nth project together. Planned car accident, shady fathers, and swearing an oath to serve justice! Lol.
No one is luckier than Luo Jin these days, he gets to work with real life girlfriend Tang Yan (5th time!) in The Way We Were after collaborating with humbling bee Zheng Shuang in My Story For You, both dramas feature the beautiful college days, one overseas and one back in 90s China.
UPDATE: Trailers for the other two unaired dramas: The Gods and modern drama Love’s Lies.
The movie adaptation of Three Lives Three Worlds Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms (三生三世十里桃花) called Once Upon A Time hit theaters in the states on August 11th. It stars the gorgeous visual pair of Yang Yang and Liu Yi Fei.
If you have watched, time to voice your opinions! I ‘ll be tuning in next week!
