Based on the book of the same name, Revive: SuperStar 重生之名流巨星 tells of a struggling actor’s reincarnation as an younger artist (Ma Ke) and his path to stardom. On the way he is helped by his agent and lover (Xu Haiqiao), a seasoned actor (Pong Nawat), a female actress who fakes a relationship with him ( Zhang Xinyu), and one who fakes a marriage with him (Han Chae-young).
I love that they actually put effort into the teaser, and the cinematography is a huge step-up from most idol dramas. Unfortunately, I’m going to guess this is going to be the second drama after Nirvana in Fire to break up the canon couple and force the male lead to have a heterosexual one. Neither is it the latest one, since that honor goes to Ma Ke, Qiao Zhenyu, and Zhang Xinyu’s Song of Phoenix.
