Wu Xize, Wang Yuwen, Yu Mengmeng attend a Tang Dynasty academy in new show

How believable is Wang Yuwen’s crossdressing?  

Wang Yuwen, Wu Xize, Xie Bingbing, Liu Yichang, and Qi Peixin become students at a Tang Dynasty academy in currently filming series The Chang’an Youth 长安少年行. Here’s the first set of character posters featuring their various outfits. The series is produced by Tencent Entertainment and directed by Chow Ka-Man (The Wife’s Lie).

Talented chef Shen Yiyi (Wang Yuwen) accidentally becomes a student at the Shangyi Academy in Chang’an.  There, she befriends Yang Zi’an (Wu Xize), who is there undercover for the Emperor, sword master Dugu Muxue, youth Tang Jiuqi, , and Prince Li Xinyuan. The five all have their own secrets in this seemingly normal school. How will they reveal their true selves and feelings to each other?

Zhang Zifeng falls for two different Xiong Ziqi’s in One and Another Him

Following the now common tale of a cold, brilliant soul  and a friendly, goofy soul living in the body of one hot love interest, One and Another Him 我和两个ta looks like a dupe of a bunch of other similar dramas like Fool in Love with You^2 and Two Spirits’ Love. Zhang Zifeng (Chinatown Detective) can be a brilliant actress at times, though, so it might be good.

Xiong Ziqi plays the male lead while  Liu Jianyu, Liu Yichang, and Xia Ruoyan round up the rest of the cast.  I don’t know the supporting cast but they look cute.
