Well-Intended Love 2 is not a sequel after all, set to release on Feb. 13

Xu Kaicheng and Wang Shuang reunite for another drama that hopefully has all the cuteness of the first one but without the creepy twist.

So it turns out that Well-Intended Love 2 is actually not a direct sequel, but a similar story with the same cast, crew, and character names. The drama is loosely based on novel Heir Games: Private Sweetie 豪门游戏:私宠甜心宝贝 (yeah, it sounds that ridiculous in Chinese, too) and follows your usual rom-com troupes.

The drama is set to stream on Feb. 13 on Sohu and Tencent, no news of whether Netflix will also pick this one up. Here’s the latest trailer and some stills below the cut:

A belated round-up for the drama I’ve surprisingly watched the most episodes of so far this year. Dr. Cutie 甜医宠妻 stars Sun Qian as the cross-dressing doctor Tian Qi sent to the Ji household. When her master, the new fiancee of general Ji Heng dies of poison, she must prove her innocence to keep her job and her head. Her method? Suck up to the household head Ji Heng, of course. The unintended consequences is that both Ji Heng and his cousin fall for the cute doctor in this love triangle.
