So I’ve been contemplating whether or not to post this piece of floating news and I’ve decided that speculations are fun (=P). The list of invited cast appears in a manual of possible future investments. So take it with a grain of salt because my (our) girl is kinda booked until June of next year and some of the actors have expressed not knowing about the possible remake. However, with the horrendous remake of Huan Zhu Ge Ge (Princess Pearls) in 2011, anything is possible! For those who are fairly new to Cdramas, Romance In The Rain is the drama adaptation of Qiong Yao’s novel Romance in The Rain in 2001 (there are older adaptations but not my cup of wine). It starred three breakout stars from her previous smashing hits, Princess Pearls in 1998-1999. The story follows the ups and downs of Lu Zhen Hua, a retired general, and his family in Shanghai as the complications of having nine wives and many kids unfold in a melodramatic way. While he has many kids, one is bound to stand out and she is our protagonist; the daughter who shares his volatile personality – Lu Yi Ping.
This is just soooo cute not to be posted and shared. I think anyone who has watched Princess Returning Pearl aka Huan Zhu Ge Ge will always remember the infamous character – Rong Ma Ma, the queen’s loyal servant whose weapons are needles and her nails, played by Li Ming Qi. It has been 17 years and our Rong Ma Ma is 79 going to 80 next year. Anytime Zi Wei would beg the king to spare her life, I was convinced the girl is possessed. LOL. Good memories. Beside her, Romance In The Rain‘s costars – Ruby Lin and Leo Ku were also there to support. Too bad Vicki wasn’t there to round out the reunion.
Woo! Our Pearl Princess has decided to take a break from her directing duties to star in an upcoming cdrama titled aptly as Tiger Mom Cat Dad. This marks her return after 2009’s cdrama A Woman’s Epic. Playing the squeaky husband is none other than film actor, Tong Da Wei.
