Cute Programmer (程序员那么可爱) is an upcoming rom com following the life of our heroine as she falls in love with a genius (again?) programmer and follows his footsteps to becoming a programmer herself. However, after graduation, she finds out his company only hires male programmers (why?), thus she disguises as a man to join. Hiding her identity proves hard and so the two agree to be a contract couple.
None of the stills has her in disguise at all. Lol.
Airing 9/10~ You can read the comics it’s based on here.
Another remake! A popular Kdrama that aired in 2005! I don’t think I have watched this one before but I remember the craze Lee Jun Ki generated from it. Lol.
Synopsis from Wiki: A native of Jeju Island, Joo Yoo-rin lives with her father, who is addicted to gambling. Because of her father’s debts, Yoo-rin has become particularly skilled at lying and grifting. When her father escapes the island to hide from his debtors, Yoo-rin is determined to support herself and clear up the debts. One day, she meets Seol Gong-chan, the sole heir to the L’Avenue Hotel fortune.
To grant his grandfather’s dying wish, Gong-chan employs Yoo-rin to act as his grandfather’s long-lost granddaughter. Offering a monthly salary plus a bonus, he asks her to do what she does best—to put on an act. Not wishing to lie to a dying man, yet desperate for the money, Yoo-rin takes the offer and starts playing the long-lost granddaughter. Through a strange twist of fate, however, finding his granddaughter makes the grandfather so happy that he makes a complete recovery. Since they have claimed to be cousins, Gong-chan and Yoo-rin are forced to live together under one roof, and as time passes, the attraction between them grows. However, love is forbidden for these two, who must pass as cousins…
I didn’t watch the first part or the second part, and now we have the third part! Lol.
Tencent describes The Eternal Love 3 (双世宠妃3): The story took place in a fictional world. In the modern city, Qu Xiaotan, a sales lady, unexpectedly was affected by the power of the mysterious Xuanling Continent and then traveled to the ancient Dongyue Country. She then became Qu Tan’er, the second lady of Minister Qu. With the thinking and habits of modern people, she was extremely uncomfortable with ancient life. And due to her “abnormal” requests one by one, Qu Mansion was in a mess. But an unexpected fall turned Qu Tan’er into a quiet one, which was the same as the real Miss Qu the second. From then on, she was sometimes mad and sometimes quiet, annoying people around her. In this period, she was ordered to marry Mo Liancheng, the eighth prince of Dongyue Country. However, she was ever entangled with the great prince Mo Yihuai. This woman with a changeable personality became the cause of many troubles…
Or WeTV’s synopsis: It tells the story that Qu Xiaotan traveled to the ancient times again after the Soul-suppressing Pearl becomes unstable. She brought back Mo Liancheng, who has lost memory in this life, continuing to chase love…
My mom is too happy about this remake. She has watched the original 10x times and other remakes 10x times. I’m still scratching my head about what is hooking her. Lol. Xing Zhao Lin and Liang Jie reunite for fans of The Eternal Love (Yes they are reuniting for Season 3.)
They have been dropping stills all day today and finally a trailer. Air date anytime now ~
Can we call Xing Zhao Lin the YA Sniper? Young Actresses Sniper. He’s literally making rounds with all the adorable actresses! Standing In The Time is another modern romance where our leads find themselves led away from their dream jobs and how they conquer what life throws at them and make the best of it. She dreams of becoming a fashion editor but is now under the proofreading department, while he wants to become a writer but is now a model. Our two lost souls meet at the same company and provide comfort and support as they strive forward their dreams.
I think the last modern drama I watched was…Li Ying’s Our Glamorous Time and even then I couldn’t finish. Lol. Xing Zhao Lin is steadily making modern dramas his playground; he has starred with most of the younger generation actresses. xD Lucky’s First Love started airing yesterday! Let’s see how Bai Lu make her arrogant boss fall in love!
