When heiress Chen Qingqing is out of funds after leaving home, she becomes accidentally involved in the life of her classmate and pop idol Situ Feng in Accidentally in Love惹上冷殿下. The series stars Guo Junchen (Go Princess Go) and Sun Yining (The Eternal Love). I haven’t seen neither in leading roles, but the posters and trailers look super cute. The series airs two eps per day on Wednesday, Thursday, and Fridays on Tencent here. It’s not region-blocked for me (US).
