I’m usually not a rom-com person, but the premise for iQiyi rom-com Be My Princess has definitely caught my attention. Xu Zhengxi (The Autumn Ballad) plays an aloof actor who literally embodies his character after getting into a car accident. Zhou Jieqiong(Legend of Fei) stars as his bewildered costar, who must play along and help him recover.
Directed by Huang Tianren (Here To Heart, Someday orOne Day), the drama releases episodes weekly on iQiyi and Mango TV.
iQiyi has released a handful of trailers and posters for its upcoming dramas. The successful Light On programme is back for a second round, and the streaming platform has also lumped its romance dramas into a Sweet On schedule, which is set to begin this month. Which dramas are you looking forward to most?
First up is Luoyang, and the trailer is giving me huge The Longest Day in Chang’an vibes. Huang Xuan‘s character seems pretty similar to Lei Jiayin’s, in that they’re both former government officials who are tasked with solving intriguing mysteries.
