Tears in Heaven Trailer: Li Qin’s devastated between Zhang Yun Long and Shawn Dou

Errgawd. This is so sad (why must they look so happy?!). I was giggling my way through the first trailer until the show reminds me it’s a melodrama, adapted from stepmother Fei Wo Si Cun‘s novel Variety Flowers At Seaside (剧海上繁花) and officially called Tears in Heaven. Li Qin looks so sweet with both male leads, especially with Zhang Yun Long since they have a happy period together before krap hits the fan and he literally goes to heaven. The female lead role is very heavy in the book as she carries heartbreak and devastation from one relationship to another, torn between past love, current love, and future love. Yes, that’s three men in total but one of them is a bag of dirt compared to the other two.

Shawn Dou, Li Qin, and Zhang Yun Long for Tears In Heaven

Ready or not, here comes another melodrama dropped in your laps! Tears In Heaven is the English name for the drama adaptation of novel Variety Flowers At Seaside (剧海上繁花) written by Fei Wo Si Cun. After reading the summary, I now know why Miss Fei’s nickname is Stepmother. She’s very cruel to her characters, especially the female lead, hence I admit to not being a fan of her stories. But it seems like producers are drawn to them, adapting one after another. Some of her novels-to-dramas include Too Late to Say I Love You, Sealed With A Kiss, Chronicle of Life, and Siege in Fog. In the latest project, she has secured the lovely faces of Shawn Dou, Li Qin, and Zhang Yun Long to play out her melodrama. WHYYYYYYYY. I love these kids and so watching them suffer is ideally not the best but it will be a challenge for the boys as I have yet to see them emotionally challenged.

But after reading the drama synopsis, looks like changes have been made, so yay and nay for that…
