First of all, I’m kind of impressed by their use of English songs in the two trailers so far. Hopefully this bodes well for their rather large OST (all the girls and maybe Wang Kai have their own song). Second, can everyone but maybe Jiang Xin please get a new stylist? There is absolutely nothing young and hip about any of Wang Kai’s outfits.
I still think Ode to Joy 欢乐颂 could be ground-breaking in being a female-centric modern drama that isn’t solely-focused on romance (despite this trailer), so I have high hopes for this series. I like the end message of the trailer, if anything else. All the leads have signed up for season 2 and 3 for this drama, so that should indicate the script is really good (or they were emotionally blackmailed).
The series has been pushed back for an April 18th release, and still stars Liu Tao, Jiang Xin, Yang Zi, Wang Ziwen, Qiao Xin, Zu Feng, Yang Shuo, Zhang Lu, Wang Kai, Jin Dong, and Zhang Xiaoqian,
I can’t stand Qu Xiaoxiao. The narrator can insist that she’s “good at heart” all he wants, but I find her sense of self-importance incredibly obnoxious. Skipped over almost all of Wang Kai’s scenes because she annoyed me so much.
The only drama I’m actually looking forward to this half of the year. Never going to say no to Wang Kai + the rest of the awesome cast
Looks good, i like this type of drama. The character feel like real people with real events and real emotions.
