Guess which three of these seven people fight over a “kiss” in the trailer? (hint: Chen Qiao’en is not one of the three)

Tonghua seems to have hit the sweet spot for goofy and fun romances once more with Destined to Love You 偏偏喜欢你, this time starring Chen Qiao’en she tries to put order into the unruly military class of Jia Nailiang, Bosco Wong, Li Zifeng, Zhang Yunlong, Gao Weiguang, Zheng Shuang, etc.

I feel weird about making romantic comedies about the Republican era, but it does look right up my alley.

Love or hate her, you’ve got to admit Liu Yifei was one of the most adorable children ever.

More of cute adorable children behind the cut. I think it’s really rare for Chinese people to do plastic surgery (as of now) so this won’t be one of those “spot the differences” posts. This took a lot of time and effort to put together, so PLEASE DO NOT COPY AND POST ANYWHERE ELSE, w/o permission.
