  1. Zhang Yunlong!! He’s so cute. I’m in. I hope the drama would be good though. 40 episodes sounds like a lot of opportunities for the drama to go the wrong way down (especially with a corporate setting)….

    • Yes that’s her! Most likely a guest role – seems like she’s been branching into everything these days, hoping one will work. Didn’t Liu Wen gain more popularity after her Chinese WGM stint with Choi Siwon?

      And haha, you cut off Jing Boran in your dp XD

      • Yeah, Liu Wen is now crazy popular. I don’t think she’s acted much? Xi Mengyao’s face might be more acting-friendly, though, since it’s closer to a conventional actress face than Liu Wen’s.

        I tried but couldn’t get both JBR + NN in :( This was the only photo (and a BTS photo at that) of them that I thought they looked better together than apart.
