Symphony’s Romance with Lin Yun and Zhang Xin Cheng finally gets air date

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). The new English title is Symphony’s Romance with leads in 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.

Airing 6/21!

First Impression: What do you think of Skate Into Love with Wu Qian and Zhang Xin Cheng?

Adapted from the novel Rock Sugar And Pear Stew written by Jiu Xiao Qi, Skate Into Love features an adorable romance between two people who are fated to meet again chasing after their dreams on ice. When they were little, our heroine constantly teased our timid and quiet hero. They meet again during college and the table has turned. He’s now a popular hockey player while she’s bumbling along. He’s on a mission for payback but proximity to her sparks a different kind of feeling and in return, he helps her discover her passion for speed-skating again.

Airing 3/19! This looks wicked adorable and I have faith in the leads!
