Promo Round-up: New Meteor Garden

Fun fact: Wishing upon a shooting star is bad luck in Chinese.

The latest rendition of Meteor Garden begins streaming today for two episodes every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.  It airs one day before that.  I haven’t seen it around on Youtube/Viki but I presume it’ll get picked up eventually. It will start streaming on Netflix with English subtitles here beginning July 13th.

The series stars Shen Yue as the spunky female lead Shan Yue  and newcomers Wang Hedi, Guan Hong, Liang Jingkang, and Wu Xize as the bully quartet F4. Dee Hsu, the younger sister of the original Shancai, will be playing the older sister of Daoming Si.
