Revive: Superstar has a five-star teaser

Finally, a teaser

Finally, a teaser that isn’t just a smash-up of spoilers.

Based on the book of the same name, Revive: SuperStar  重生之名流巨星 tells of a struggling actor’s reincarnation as an younger artist (Ma Ke) and his path to stardom.  On the way he is helped by his agent and lover (Xu Haiqiao), a seasoned actor  (Pong Nawat), a female actress who fakes a relationship with him ( Zhang Xinyu), and one who fakes a marriage with him (Han Chae-young).

I love that they actually put effort into the teaser, and the cinematography is a huge step-up from most idol dramas.   Unfortunately, I’m going to guess this is going to be the second drama after Nirvana in Fire to break up the canon couple and force the male lead to have a heterosexual one.    Neither is it the latest one, since that honor goes to Ma Ke, Qiao Zhenyu, and Zhang Xinyu’s Song of Phoenix.

Buddies Fu Xinbo, Zhang Liang pair up once more for upcoming Republican series 1931 Love Story 1931年的爱情. The series co-starring Han Chae-young, Li Xin’ai is still filming, and released a preliminary trailer last week.   Apparently Fu Xinbo plays a pair of brothers, but I can’t really figure out what the plot is from the trailer, anyone care to enlighten me?
