Previously known as Brave to Love, the modern drama has since changed its name to Don’t Think Twice Love’s All Right (爱我就别想太多) starring Li Yi Tong and Chen Jian Bin. As you can see the theme of this drama is exactly their big age gap. He’s a golden bachelor trying to find his partner for life and he meets a bubbly, youthful designer. He wants her to love him not for his money so he conceals his “rich” background, which makes it quite an upsetting lie for her to discover after their marriage. She wants a divorce but the two must maintain appearance for a few months for their company’s sake. Will those few months be able to save their blooming garden?
I’m a shallow person alright, but I do believe that love comes in many forms, shapes, sizes, status, and ages (uh, the legal ones). Both are strong actors so let’s hope they can sell their romance and sparkle. ❤
Republican drama Inside Man (局中人) stars Zhang Yi Shan and Pan Yue Ming as brothers who begin their journey in different camps and eventually finding themselves aligned with the same interests in order to survive a game they want no involvement in. Well, the cast is pretty good so there’s one point for the drama. xD
Get Married or Not (谁说我结不了婚) is a modern drama said to be inspired by 2016 Japanese drama It’s Not That I Can’t Marry, But I Don’t Want To dealing with the topic of marriage and age and how our female lead and her friends are pressured and questioned by society on why they are not married in their 30s. YES! Why! Why! Why! Us girls get hit hard and I’m hearing that question so often now that I’m also in my 30s. Why can’t I go at my own pace, leave me be!
