Yang Zi and Xu Kai is each other’s Best Choice Ever in upcoming modern drama

Best Choice Ever (承欢记) is adapted from the novel written by Yi Shu.

Synopsis from Tencent: Mai Chenghuan, a girl born in an ordinary family in Shanghai in the 1990s, is urged by her mother, Liu Wanyu, to discuss marriage with her boyfriend, Xin Jialiang. However, the affluent economic conditions of Xin’s family upset the originally equal emotional relationship. At the same time, Mai’s mother’s excessive interference in her daughter’s lifelong affairs accelerates the breakup between Mai Chenghuan and Xin Jialiang. Caught between filial piety and loyalty to oneself, Mai Chenghuan struggles. She gradually breaks free from her mother’s dominant care and becomes more focused and enterprising in her work. Mai Chenghuan’s transformation is recognized by her grandmother, who entrusts her with the important responsibility of managing the family’s most valued hotel business. Yao Zhiming, the grandson of the grandmother and a professional hotel manager, gradually understands and approves of Mai Chenghuan in their cooperation. They become work partners, advancing hand in hand. In their personal lives, Yao Zhiming is surrounded by the warmth beneath the fireworks of the Mai family, and his feelings for Mai Chenghuan gradually heat up. From “beneath Chenghuan’s knees” to “achieving self,” Mai Chenghuan has embarked on an extraordinary journey of growth that is uniquely her own.

Zhang Ling He and Xu Ruo Han begin filming for modern drama The Best Thing

I’m so happy someone’s hairline is getting a break from filming costume dramas. Lol. The Best Thing (爱你) is adapted from the novel Loving You is the Best Thing I Have Done written by Sheng Li. It’s a short and sweet novel, depicting the romance between a workaholic hotel manager suffering from headaches and a patient and gentle doctor. You be my sunshine ☀️ too Ling He?

The novel was being translated by illanovels but looks like progress has stopped for a while. Who knows, maybe with the drama production being kick-started, more translators will be motivated to finish.

Official images and trailer for Blossom with Meng Zi Yi and Li Yun Rui

Blossom is adapted from the novel Jiu Chong Zi/Deep Purple (九重紫) written by Zhi Zhi, who also wrote The Sword and The Brocade. This is another second chance type of novel. After our heroine dies in her first life, she realizes she has overlooked many things. She wakes up in her toddler years. It’s strange to me how a lot of novels want their main characters to go back in time to when they are a baby. Quite useless, no? They don’t even have control of their bladder yet. 🤦 As for our male lead, he has brewing troubles within his own family, hostile relationship with his dad, which results in many deaths.

Youhug’s description: The first daughter of the Dou family, Dou Zhao, who was abandoned by her husband, was accidentally reborn. She gets to know Song Mo, who is carrying a family grudge. Together they save their families from destruction, vindicate the unjust cases of loyal officers and keep the country in peace.

Drama is still filming.
