Love Is All (师爷请自重) is an ancient romcom based on the novel written by a familiar name in Jiu Xiao Qi (My Mr. Mermaid, Skate Into Love) starring Zhang Ruo Nan (Cry Me a Sad River) and Zhang Hao Wei (Joy Of Life). She is a quirky, wealthy miss who frequently quarrels with the county magistrate, our main guy. Using their brains, the two team up to solve cases. Hmm, that is the shortest baidu synopsis I have seen in a while. The author has written quite a lot of light-hearted comedies which mostly translated well onscreen with positive reception. Hoping this is the same!
Wow, what stellar casting, both in the young and older generation of the ensemble! After confirming Zhang Ruo Yun as the male lead a few months back, the production finally releases a bunch of posters for the remaining cast with Li Qin taking the female lead role. Qing Yu Nian or known in English as Joy of Life or Extra life in Qing is a novel written by Mao Ni.
Another case of remakes making its round across Asia. It’s the remake of Japanese drama Operation Love (プロポーズ大作戦) which aired in 2007 with Nagasawa Masami and Tomohisa Yamashita as leads. The Chinese remake stars EXO’s Lay (The Mystic Nine) and movie actress Chen Dou Ling (The Left Ear). I’ll say that I was worried with the news since neither impressed me with their first big acting project, but now the stills and the first trailer show them being adorably harmless and cute, I feel much better! It’s basically a second-chance at happily-ever-after with the hero being given the opportunity to travel back in time and right his regrets.
If only we all have Julian Cheung as our second-chance guardiam angel. Heh.
