The Dreaming Man 假如王子睡着了 is Disney’s first Chinese co-production, and stars Jelly Lin Yun (Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back) as a modern-day Cinderella who gets entangled in a love triangle with two brothers, played by Chen Bolin (Surprise) and Zhang Yunlong (Mr. Pride vs Miss Prejudice).
Wang Xiaohe (Lin Yun) works multiple jobs to try and fund a university education, and develops a crush on genius Zheng Tianle (Zhang Yunlong). One day he faints and falls into a coma, and while taking care of Zheng Tianle at the hospital, she is misunderstood to be his fianceé by his parents because of a special diamond ring. Xiaohe gladly plays along, and soon attracts the attention of older brother Zheng Tianchou (Chen Bolin).
Due to premiere on December 8th, the film recently released a promotional theme song (full) sung by JJ Lin.
Disney? Could Chen Bolin be in the running as Captain Shang in Mulan?
Now that you bring it up, I think Zhang Yunlong would actually make a great Shang. Chen Bo-lin looks a bit too old for the role.
I heard the live-action replaces Shang with some other guy, though.
I’m a Zhang Yun Long fan, so would have preferred him as the male lead. I don’t get the Chen Bolin charm, so this movie’s not for me.
How come I think this is similar to while you were sleeping, the hollywood movie?! But I loved that movie so I don’t care haha…
Exactly what I thought when read the synopsis…chinese version of “while you were sleeping” by Sandra Bullock
What about the Chinese version of HSM? Was the not by Disney?
Completely forgot about that one. Disney + SMG seems to spell bad news though. No expectations for this collab.
Someone guessed the same movie as me. It sounds promising.
In other words, a remake of “While You Were Sleeping”…
Thank you! I knew I recognized this, but I couldn’t quite place it.
