Here are some of the stars on the red carpet, including Zhang Ziyi, Carina Lau, Fan Bingbing, Li Bingbing, Yang Mi, Lu Han, Angelababy, Yao Chen, Chris Li Yuchun, Ni Ni, Jing Boran, Zhang Ruoyun, Tang Yixin, Zhang Lanxin, Jiang Xin, Amber Kuo, Bea Hayden, Wang Ziwen, Li Xiaolu, Jia Nailiang, Ying’er, Aarif Lee, Zhao Liying, Qiao Xin, Zhang Yunlong, Zhang Binbin, Li Yundi, Chen Xuedong, Ruby Lin, Wallace Huo, Ady An Yixuan, Shawn Dou Xiao, etc. There were a lot more stars (like Fan Bingbing’s boyfriend Li Chen, Angelababy’s husband Huang Xiaoming), but their outfits were boring.
Clothes identification from : Starstylefashion@Weibo , clothes from the Bazaar Weibo or the star’s own Weibo’s (this is fair because both are PS’ed anyways) .
Rush to the Dead Summer is a coming-of-age drama starring Chen Xuedong (The Great Wall) as a talented artist who is later swamped with accusations of plagiarism, Zheng Shuang (Love O2O) as his love interest and Bai Jingting (recently seen on well-received variety show Who’s the Murderer?) as his best friend who is not in love with his girlfriend.
The 46 episode drama will begin airing tonight.
Could Guo Jingming finally have a decent TV adaptation of his novels? The trailer so far seems lovely, and casting of Zheng Shuang, Chen Xuedong, Bai Jingting, Xia Ziting and Chai Biyun is perfect.
Rush to the Dead Summer follows the main lead Lu Xiaosi (Chen Xuedong). Xiaosi is an introverted but talented illustrator who began publishing under a pseudonym in high school. He finally made it big in college and started his own publishing company, only to be caught in accusations of plagiarism. As if afraid you can’t figure out that this story is about him, Guo Jingming made the main lead’s name (小司) literally being a homophone of his own pseudonym (小四).
This is the second time Chen Xuedong will play Guo Jingming, the last time being when he played Zhou Chongguang, an annoying writer who would never turn in his writings in time, in Tiny Times 1/2/3/4. We get it, guys, you guys are soulmates.
Being a Guo Jingming story, there are also a lot of love triangles. Xiaosi is joined by the extroverted and sunny bff who will literally die for him Lu Zhihang (Bai Jingting), the perfect(ly dull) female lead Lixia (Zheng Shuang) who he dates, the spunky Yujian (Xia Ziting) with dreams of being a rockstar and a love triangle of her own , and the vain Cheng Qiqi (Chai Biyun) who also likes Xiaosi.
