After a disastrous movie that they themselves poked fun at, sit-com iPartment 5 released its first trailer yesterday. The series brings back leads Lou YIxiao, Li Jiahang, Sun Yizhou, Li Jinming, Chen He, and Liu Mengmeng. The series is set for a 2020 release.
First rule of thumb in idol dramas: if you’re the well-to-do daughter of a well-to-do businessman, it’s probably too good to be true. Especially if you’re Qi Wei.
In Love Destiny (爱情自有天意), Qi Wei stars as Cheng Xi, the daughter of the president of Landscape Corporation. In reality, though, her last name is Tang and her real father is the owner of a small restaurant. Due to an accident more than twenty years ago, she got mixed up with Tang Zheng (Malaysian actor Melvin Sia), although I’m not really sure how…? Anyway, this, of course, leads to all sorts of trouble when twenty years later, the now grown-up children meet and fall in love.
I wish I could provide a more informative synopsis, but the trailer is pretty much just people dramatically yelling at each other, while dramatic music plays in the background, so it’s not of much help there. Love Destiny is set to begin airing on February 11th, and it’s helmed by Taiwanese director Chen Hui-ling (Autumn’s Concerto, Material Queen), so at the very least, we’ll be getting a lot of prettiness. Check behind the cut for the recently released preview and for a lot of stills.
