Fall In Love With A Scientist (当爱情遇上科学家) with Jasper Liu and Zhou Yu Tong wrapped up filming after 79 days. Adapted from the novel written by Ye Luo Wu Xin, the story follows our heroine’s confusing romance with two guys but he is really just one person. She meets him first as her online friend, supporting and developing feelings (while he’s living in the US) for a long while. Abandoning his bright future, he returns to China, hoping to finally meet her, but she has finally given up on this “online romance” thinking it’s better to live in reality. She blacklists his username in their chatroom. They meet again at a university and he’s now known as a black bellied scientist teaching as a professor, considered a dream man for all the female students. As she spends more time with her professor, learning, doing experiments, her feelings for him grow, rendering her a confused mess – does she still like her online friend? or has her love for her professor grown far more deeper? She finally meets up with her online friend and confronts her feelings for her professor. Same man. Lol. But their teacher-student relationship is frowned upon in society and she quits school, deciding to go study abroad in Japan. And it is there that they resolve all their pent-up feelings over the years.
Begin Again (从结婚开始恋爱) is an upcoming modern cdrama which sets up our domineering female CEO with a warm-hearted doctor. Our female lead has everything – wealth, looks, and talents but as she nears her thirties, she’s pressured to settle down by her family so the handsome and gentle doctor becomes her target. She begins scheming her way into marrying him. The trailers are quite steamyyyyy! Oh boi! Baidu says it’s adapted from a Thai novel which was made into a drama called Samee Ngern Phon in 2001 and a Thai remake again in 2016.
Here you go! Updates on webdramas that release on Valentine’s Day for people who just want to cuddle under a warm blanket like me! I have written about them before so if you want to read the previous posts, just click on the drama name in the tag line.
Adapted from the comic The Distance of Light Between You and Me (我与你的光年距离), the official English title is Long For You, an upcoming youth romance featuring Song Wei Long (Demon Girl 2, Feng Qiu Huang) and Zhou Yu Tong (The Journey). Our heroine is a special girl because she’s an immortal; living for thousand of years has desensitized her compassion and she’s frosty and indifferent in the inside despite the bright smiles that play on her lips. She lives with the goal of finding her first love a thousand years ago… and at the end of 2016, she meets a man carrying her love’s face but his love is different than that of the former, rekindling her passion and enthusiasm for life, and perhaps unraveling the knot many centuries ago. Because she desires an eternal love, their love story adapts and changes accordingly.
The trailers definitely suggest a dark revengey romance. (He stabs her?!)
