  1. Seeing ‘we are all alone’ on the list makes me sad somehow. I have accident come upon this novel before I even knew there was a drama in planning. I am anticipating Godfrey’s last drama.

  2. This is the first time in a long time where I want to check out most of the dramas. I hope at least one of them lives up to their hype. Haven’t finished a drama so far this year.

    Also I really hope Peng Guanying breaks out. He’s super underrated! Tall, handsome, charming, and a solid actor.
