The Day of Becoming You (变成你的那一天) is an upcoming romantic comedy with Zhang Xin Cheng and Liang Jie. The story follows leader of a popular boyband swapping soul/body with a reporter on the same birthday. Suddenly and unprepared, they begin to navigate their different lives and roles in life, by guiding and covering up for each other. And of course, they gradually become closer. The body-swapping shenanigans remind me of Korean drama Secret Garden except she’s not a stunt-woman who uses her fist but a reporter who uses her pen (words)!
You Are So Sweet (你听起来很甜) is upcoming romcom with a backdrop of voice actors! Looking at the trailers, I’m not sure of how much of the content will be focus on voice actors though. Lol. Our heroine is an aspiring voice actress who is described as average in looks and not that educated (so harsh on us girls?) but she strikes gold and is hired to be our male lead’s assistant, who is supposedly a genius in the field, and also founder of her workplace. However, things get complicated when she inadvertently helps second male lead (Li Xiang Zhe) chase away a dog; now he’s full-on in pursuit mode to steal her. He’s the other co-founder of the same company.
Modern drama I Don’t Like This World, I Only Like You aka Le Coup De Foudre (我不喜欢这世界，我只喜欢你) is based on the short and sweet novel written by Qiao Yi (Joey), where the story is basically her own romance with her husband, written in short, interesting anecdotes from the time they meet in school, how they get separated, reunited, and finally married. She’s a bubbly and optimistic person while he’s the cold on the outside (poisonous tongue to boot) and warm in the inside.
It stars Janice Wu Qian and Zhang Yu Jian as leads.
