Zhang Xin Cheng and Lin Yun confirm Chinese Remake of Nodame Cantabile

Read about this and thought it was interesting casting of the week. Nodame Cantabile is a manga by Tomoko Ninomiya and has been adapted as live-action television dramas by Japan (with Hiroshi Tamaki and Juri Ueno) and Korea (with Joo Won and Shim Eun Kyung) and now it’s China’s turn to dip its toes in the franchise. Now called Cantabile Youth (让全世界都听见), the main leads are Zhang Xin Cheng of My Huckleberry Friends and Lin Yun of Battle Through The Heaven. I personally haven’t finished either version but have heard of numerous praises for the Japanese version, for capturing and meshing the quirkiness of its characters and classical music seamlessly.

Xu Lu and Yang Le’s Prince Coffee Lab finally gets green light to air!

It’s always nice to see a shelved drama get off the…shelf! In this case, it’s the rom-com remake of Korean series Coffee Prince with Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo. The Chinese remake stars the adorable Xu Lu and Yang Le. Story of the original; a cool rich guy who doesn’t care much for responsibilities and lives life freely, until his grandmother gives him an ultimatum by forcing him to take over a small run-down coffee shop to show her that he’s an adult. He does and hires good-looking young men to charge the place and lure in customers. Our female lead, a tomboy and the sole breadwinner of her family, accepts the job offer and keeps her gender a secret. Thinking that she’s really a male, our hero hires her to play his gay lover to ward off the numerous blind dates his grandma sets him up with. Bickering soon develops into something more and our hero begins to question his sexuality.

Prince Coffee Lab starts airing today 8/29!
