Zhang Yuxi has been a bias of mine since My Dear Princess, and Intense Love 韫色过浓 is definitely her best project since then. While it falls into the age-old trap of losing its spark after the leads confirm their relationship, it’s cute while it lasts. Based on the book of the same name, the 35-episode series stars Zhang Yuxi as an actress trying to get out of her arranged marriage with an equally unwilling doctor played by Ding Yuxi. The marriage was set-up by their grandparents since they were young. However, for some reason their families never had them meet each other until the engagement party at the beginning of the series.
Intense Love stars Zhang Yuxi as Su Jinbei, a brazen actress who falls in love with Zhou Shiyun (Ding Yuxi), a genius doctor who is so engrossed in his career he doesn’t (want to) think any further about the heroine’s light-hearted flirtation.
