Another Li Xi Rui‘s drama! She’s currently being wooed by Dylan Xiong in Pretty Man. To Love To Heal is another modern drama where she’s paired up with Jiang Chao (The Fox’s Summer). As the name suggests, it’s a healing romance where our heroine loses her first love in an accident and therefore she lives in the past, doing the things he would want to do, pursuing studies he would want to do. Years pass by just like that until she meets a game CEO at a bar and they engage…in a one night stand that leaves the hero rattled when she cries and calls out his name in pain (he shares the same second character name with her lost love.) Two years pass by before the two meet again and this time, he’s eager to win over her cold heart! Whether or not they keep certain aspects in the drama is another story. 🙂
If anyone is busy, then Dylan Xiong Zi Qi is one to add to the list, busy filming one drama after another. He’s another new face from last year that I haven’t gotten the chance to watch in any projects yet. Seems like a nice kid on variety shows. He will be romancing Li Xi Rui in Pretty Man (国民老公), adapted from Ye Fei Ye‘s novel. It’s a modern love story that starts in high school where our two leads harbor crushes for each other but not brave enough to admit. Events happen and he thinks she likes his younger brother (of a different mother), while she thinks he hates her. And just like that 13 years pass by and now he’s a rich CEO of a company, also an acting god, while she’s a budding new actress in the scene. Behind the scene, they are forced to get married but he’s acting under the name of his younger brother – who’s in a coma after an accident. Now linked together, they will jump through hurdles to the very end. Sweetly.
Hmmmm this sounds melo but readers promise it’s a darn sweet story afterwards ~
I thought this post will never see the light of day. Every time I thought I was done, I turned around and they held a conference, released new pictures and bts videos. Good stuff, but too many news to sort through!
I’m feeling rather lukewarm about this series, mainly because our hero is described many times by novel readers as another version of Jin Yong’s famous character, Wei Xiao Bao, and I’m not fond of him at all! Then they cast Michael Chen He (Run Brother) in the role and that’s kind of a deadly combination – cannot take this man seriously. Lol. I hope he proves me wrong because the only medium I have watched him in is variety shows and that is very different for everyone. Rising new face Gina Jin plays one of the main roses in his life. Noooes!!
I have to say, I didn’t have interest in this drama but as I read reviews from novel fans, I think I will tune in after all. With all the elves, time-traveling, and demons running around in dramaland, it’s nice to have a normal modern drama (yunno, as far as I can see from the trailer, Lol.) I like that the genre is new to cdramaland and the trailer keeps it short and sweet without any physical violence, except for the brief part where Huang Xuan almost pokes Yang Mi in the eye. I wonder whether they have to re-shoot that scene several times to get it right.
In addition, it feels more grounded than your usual fare. Looking good.
