I know she’s not nearly popular enough to get a lead role, but Liu Meihan would’ve been perfect for the female lead. She’s cute and a Japanese major.
Yes to Li Xian as Gun but no to Yang zi as Tong Nian, Shen Yue would be more suitable.
I’ve got every finger crossed that this going to be good. And available to watch.
