Potential cast for Yang Mi’s adaptation of Gossip Girl?
Welcome to Micro Times, the story of ridiculously rich students with nothing better to do with their lives other than date. Let’s be honest, we’re only watching because the cast of all fairly new actors is amazingly good-looking, and Yang Mi pulled in so many sponsorships (Maserati, Bvlgari, Dolce & Gabbana, to name a few) that Micro Times might have a bigger budget than Tiny Times.
Although the cast are never in uniform in the show (contrary to Meteor Shower world belief, college students do not wear uniforms), the cast put on school uniforms just to remind us how much idol dramas have improved in fashion taste and budgets since then. Or maybe it’s just because they look good in uniform.

Hello, Kitty! You might remember Zhang Yunlong as the cute kitty in Ancient Sword, or as the fortune-teller in Paranormal Adonis, but here, he’s the one who signs all his gossip with XOXO.
Dilireba plays the slightly spoiled heiress. She is too cute for words, and I wish she were paired with Gao Weiguang instead in the drama.
Gao Weiguang and Yang Mi are a perfect example of how every heterosexual otp are actually long-lost siblings.
Li Xirui plays the boyish cook who is everybody’s best friend and no one’s true love.
As Yang Mi’s friend from the Beijing Film Academy, Xiao Yuyu is the oldest of the group by a long run. Unfortunately for her, her role is also the most boring.
Zhang Binbin is the least good-looking of the bunch, which is why Yang Mi did not sign him.
Bonus points if you can recognize who Yang Chengcheng plays in Ancient Sword.
