DT. Appledog’s Time (the drama) is the sequel to 2019’s Go Go Squid with Yang Zi and Li Xian. Both dramas are adapted from Mo Bao Fei Bao’s novels. And from what I know there are three novels in this series; God’s Left Hand, Fish Playing While Trapped in a Secret Room, and Honey Stewed Squid. Hu Yi Tian’s character, Wu Bai, is Han (Li Xian)’s cousin and he first laid eyes on the love of his life in the drama Go Go Squid (might have been different in the novel), but it was played by a different actress. In its own drama version now called DT. Appledog’s Time (亲爱的挚爱), Li Yi Tong will be playing the heroine. Our hero is a popular player of the national robot competition (different topic from the novel).
From the trailers and stills, this drama gives me vibes similar to Perfect and Casual. Be With You (好想和你在一起) is a romantic comedy featuring three different types of couples. Our leading couple is played by Ji Xiao Bing and Zhang Ya Qin. She’s a enthusiastic comic writer who needs inspiration for her book so she gets close to a cool and collected professor at school, believing he’s the perfect comic book hero. I don’t know why she needs to do that, just turn on the television and there’s inspiration, especially the cold but soft inside hero! Lol.
