A Girl Like Me 我就是这般女子 stars Guan Xiaotong as Ban Hua, an outgoing and carefree young maiden who was rejected by three potential suitors. Able to see the future through her dreams, she attempts to help her family steer clear of their terrible fates.
Hou Minghao plays the suave young gentleman Rong Xia, who enters court to unravel the mystery behind the massacre of his family and his heritage.
Based on the novel of the same name by Yuexia Dieying, the 36 episode drama is directed by Ji Zhi (Two Idiots) and written by Rao Jun (Journey of Flower, Love Lost in Times).
Guan Xiaotong looks ah-mazing! 🔥🔥 Already from the poster, she looks like the heroine who in the novel is depicted to be a rather wise noble lady who has duped people into thinking that she is all brawn and no brain. I really hope the screenwriter keeps her book personality to the core.
Hmm I wonder if they’re adapting “I Am That Kind of Woman” first because Yue Xia Die Ying’s other popular period novels feature transmigrating heroines (but they’re the type who assimilate to the historical era without imparting their knowledge of the modern world).
There is something about the “heroine, a scorned woman, who knows in advance the bad events that will happen to her and falls in love with black-bellied guy underneath the mask of a gentleman who is the source of her forthcoming misfortune” that I find endearing 😁 (*cough* “The Romance of Tiger and Rose”)
