Yang Zi, Li Xian, and Hu Yitian’s Go Go Squid! is the first breakout rom-com of the year, topping both TV ratings and internet streaming charts less than two weeks after airing. The drama from Croton Media (O2O, The Boss & Me) may lack any if all logic, but the awkward cuteness and chemistry between the two leads has won over fans. Plus, the male lead’s whole team is super cute. Here are some more posters and stills. You can watch Go Go Squid! on Youtube with English subs here.
Yang Zi, Li Xian, and Hu Yitian’s rom-com Go Go Squid 亲爱的，热爱的 (formerly 蜜汁炖鱿鱼) airs today, July 9th. Yang Zi plays a brilliant IT student who doubles as a cover artist who falls in love with the workaholic competitive gamer played by Li Xian. Hu Yitian joins the mix as a rival gamer. The daily drama is available on Youtube here.
Nowadays dramas can be pulled 10 minutes before airing (ahem Novoland, although that’s probably more to do with the fact that it’s a period drama), so don’t get too excited about the shows with unconfirmed dates.
Shows that dropped with little notice: The Untamed, Love and Destiny, The Longest Day in Chang’an, Novoland: Eagle Flag
Go Go Squid! 蜜汁炖鱿鱼 stars Yang Zi (Ode to Joy 2) as Tong Nian, a cover singer of Japanese songs and a genius IT programming student. Li Xian (Tientsin Mystic) plays Han Shangyan, a legendary professional gamer with a high IQ and EQ who doesn’t take an interest to girls.
