Well-Intended Love team succeeds again with The Romance of Hua Rong

If you ever wondered what Well-Intended Love would look like with the male lead being a pirate in ancient China, you’re really weird but also in luck.

If your mindless fun rom-com quota is feeling unfulfilled after watching all the new Christmas Hallmark movies, The Romance of Hua Rong 一夜新娘 is here to save the day. From the company and writer behind Well-Intended Love, this rom-com about a pirate and a young lady who wants to be a vigilante is fast-paced and filled with cuteness.

The female lead is super cute and reminds me of Alyssa Chia, while the male lead grows on you (a lot of people have mentioned he looks like a young Chen Daoming). Well-Intended Love supporting leads Yi Bochen and Huang Qianshuo join the cast once more as the rival love interest and the male lead’s assistant.

You can watch the drama on Youtube here. The series updates two episodes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with six extra episodes for MGTV VIP members.

Well-intended Love continues Sohu’s trend of mindless cuteness

Xu Kaicheng is a roll with two small-budget rom-com hits,  I’m a Pet at Dali Temple and this.

Sohu’s exaggerated but so-cute-you-want-to-squeal rom-coms are my guilty pleasure dramas.  The latest hit,  Well-intended Love 奈何boss要娶我, continues that trend.    The series that reportedly is still waiting on payment for many of its staff got popular enough that its host Sohu has changed it from streaming two episodes a week to three and then four episodes per weeks after fans threw a riot.   

When struggling actress Xia Lin  (Wang Shuang) needs a bone marrow transplant to survive, she strikes a deal with the donor to marry him in a contract marriage in exchange for the donation.  As it turns out, she hit the jackpot with  Ling Yizhou (Xu Kaicheng), a wealthy, attractive businessman who is also actually really considerate and sweet. The love quad is joined by fellow actor  (Yi Bochen).  The male lead’s otc assistant (Huang Qianshuo) and the female lead’s over-imaginative best friend (Liu Jiaxi) also make a super cute side couple.

It’s available on Netflix here.
