When A Snail Falls in Love has released new posters and a trailer, along with an official air date of October 24th. Wang Ziwen (Ode to Joy) stars as the titular ‘snail’ Xu Xu, a physically petite newbie detective learning the ropes with her superior Ji Bai, played by Wang Kai (recently seen in variety show Fighting Man). The two are currently filming Ode to Joy 2.
Most of the weekly dramas this year have had average performances, with only a few reaching the elusive 1% ratings mark. Critical reception has been low for all of them, which wasn’t a surprise given the excessive filler scenes and bloated story arcs. I’m not sure if Snail will be able to turn the ratings around, though I do hope it’ll have better critical success than its predecessors.
The 24 episode drama will air 3 episodes every Monday night on Tencent and Dragon TV.
