So Young airs after 6 months, 8 cities filming marathon


The costumes are lovely, the actors are cute, and the on-location sets are beautiful for this youthful summer treat.

The longest-filmed modern idol drama I’ve heard of, So Young 致青春 shot in three locations in Italy (Milan, Florence, and Lucca) and five in China (Shanghai, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Beijing, Wuyuan) over a period of six months.   The adaptation also features on-site recording, another bonus.    Starring Chen Yao, Yang Le, Zhang Danfeng, Ma Ke, and Cai Jingwen,  So Young is set to air July 11th, and I’m definitely looking forward to it!

Chen Yao chases after Yang Le in So Young


When people like Chen Yao and Dilireba always play the one who relentlessly chases after some completely unmoved guy, you begin to question what’s wrong with the male race.

Chen Yao, Yang Le, Ma Ke, and Cai Jingwen tackle on Yang Zishan, Mark Zhao, and Han Geng  in  the much brighter(literally) and younger TV adaptation of So Young 致青春.  I’m a fan of both leads, and the trailer actually looks like a lot more fun than the film. No news on broadcasting yet.
