Zhao Wei’s 8-Episode Monologue drama, Hear Her, focusing on the struggles of women in today’s society

Hear Her (听见她说) is an upcoming short monologue drama consisting of 8 15-minute episodes starring a line of solid actresses including Bai Bai He, Hao Lei, Qi Xi, Wang Zhi, Xi Mei Juan, Yang Zi, Yong Mei, and Yang Mi. I’m interested to see how Zhao Wei has grown as a director since her debut days and it’s great to see her join the shift of focus to women this year. Some of the struggles include midlife crisis, housewife life, domestic violence, older singles, and being the perfect girl.

Airing 11/17!

Remember the Korean song playing in the background of the trailer? Yea. I was hesitant to click play. Good thing the music director didn’t go down that path again. They enlisted the help of Hawick Lau. The song title, 爱情曾来过, is hard for me to translate so anyone fluent in the language, please help. And if you have been reading AVV, A Wife’s Secret will begin airing on March 2nd. So there’s another week for you to mentally prepare. This baby ain’t short and sweet. I’m still deciding whether I want to upload this project….6-0…..o.o

The 60-episode (gulp, gulp) drama has recently wrapped up filming. Part of me looks forward to its premiere (TBA) but the number of episodes is a daunting element that haunts me. STILL.

Now I wish she could film a modern drama with Chen Xiao. Pwease!
