My Girlfriend is An Alien 2 (外星女生柴小七2) is the sequel to 2019’s modern fantasy My Girlfriend is An Alien, reuniting the same leads. The story follows the hilarious romance between an alien girl and an overbearing boss who has trouble recalling the females around him. Season 2 continues with their adventures on Earth.
I didn’t even watch Season 1 and here they go and begin filming for Season 2. To those who watch S1, did the show warrant a sequel?
Crush (原来我很爱你) is adapted from the novel written by Mu Fu Sheng. When we meet our heroine, she’s a college senior and dreams of becoming radio host. Working as an assistant for a radio station, she admires a songwriter who is known as Yi Jin (male lead’s pseudonym). On a chance encounter, she meets and falls in love with our male lead, a visually-impaired man from a broken family. The two share a brief relationship that is torn apart by a loss. They meet again three years later.
Love Like White Jade (白玉思无瑕) is an upcoming period drama featuring Zhang Yao and Wan Peng. Our female lead is hired to help our male lead’s in literature and martial arts. While they clash due to opposite personalities, she’s secretly looking for her missing twin brother, and he’s investigating the death of his father. He wears a mask while doing furtive investigation, making our heroine fall in love with him in that getup. When the truth is revealed, the same person is the culprit of both cases. The two finally work together to face the hardships and challenges ahead.
As fate would have it they were also in When We Were Young (人不彪悍枉少年) when he was the second male lead and she was the female lead. 🙂
First Romance (初恋了那么多年) is adapted from the novel written by Wei Mian Jun and stars Wang Yi Lun and Wan Peng. In their younger days, our male lead harbors a crush on our heroine but never speaks about it. Years later, both are in college – he’s the popular male student who plays the pianist, and now it’s her turn to be smitten at first sight upon seeing him again. Boy, how much did you change for that effect? Lol.
