No one is luckier than Luo Jin these days, he gets to work with real life girlfriend Tang Yan (5th time!) in The Way We Were after collaborating with humbling bee Zheng Shuang in My Story For You, both dramas feature the beautiful college days, one overseas and one back in 90s China.
UPDATE: Trailers for the other two unaired dramas: The Gods and modern drama Love’s Lies.
The English title has been changed from Love The Whole World to My Story For You (为了你，我愿意热爱整个世界), the drama adaptation of the novel written by Tang Jia San Shao about his own uplifting love story with his wife, played by Luo Jin and Zheng Shuang respectively. In the bustling, modern world, their romance hopes to give the younger generation a new, positive look at true love, how to hold each other hand and walk through the obstacles of life. To pursue his wife, our author wrote her 137 letters, and to protect her, he wrote 16 long stories. His love spans over a course of 16 years, from when he was an unemployed individual to a successful writer in his own right.
The sets are lovely to look at~ And our OTP looks like the most down-to-earth couple ever. – Ghost Kap 👻
I just really, really, really, dislike novels that put everyone through the wringer, especially the female lead. This is dog’s blood type of drama that I don’t even want to skim it. It’s so controversial that it needed to be heavily edited before it gets the green light to enter production. They held a press conference a few days ago, confirming Zheng Shuang as their female lead, and just a few hours ago, the drama weibo has officially followed its male lead – Ma Tian Yu (along with GJM and ZS). The original story features…. gang rape (!!), teen abortion, suicide, etc. O_O. It’s a painful love story about four kids in high school. They are in high school…Aigoo… Guo Jing Ming explains he wanted to write about how fast kids are maturing these days and how selfish they are with them not showing gratitude for things, coupled with a growing sense of teenage rebellion. All the emotions escalating into extreme situations, like water gathering into a ditch.
I’m supposed to packing for my trip! Not harrumph-ing over such news. XD
I thought this post will never see the light of day. Every time I thought I was done, I turned around and they held a conference, released new pictures and bts videos. Good stuff, but too many news to sort through!
