Dilraba and Yang Yang are on a roll with perfectly casted roles. They’ll be playing a big celebrity vs space engineer couple who meets while playing multiplayer game Honor of Kings in the latest Gu Man (Love O2O, The Boss & Me) adaptation, You Are My Honor 你是我的荣耀.
Dilraba plays actress Qiao Jingjing, who takes a crash course in Honor of Kings after signing an endorsement deal. She ends up taking the course from her high school crush Yu Tu, a space engineering grad student. Meanwhile, Yu Tu is debating between pursuing space engineering in the public sector or taking on a much more financially rewarding private sector job.
Yang Yang’s righteous but boyish looks are perfect for Yu Tu, while Dilraba will be able to bring back the slightly-proud but mostly-goofy personality that she does so well into Qiao Jingjing. Plus, she’ll get a bunch of glamourous red carpet looks for the show. Honestly, I think this and The Long Ballad are her best-cast roles since her first breakthrough role as Gao Wen.
On one hand, I’m worried about Yang Yang getting typecast in these gaming dramas, but on the other… I reaaally liked watching him in Love O2O and the King’s Avatar. :P
I mean, there’s a reason he gets typecast in gaming dramas. He’s perfect for all of them.
Can’t wait 😁….I just hope they stick to the source and not drag this too much like silent separation but more like Love O2O as gu man adaptation…
