“You Are My Sunshine” releases trailer

Can you believe it's been ten years since these two acted together?  @Liu Yifei
“If you’ve met the one, you never settle. ”  – Yang Mi’s  Guo Xiang  Zhao Mosheng

I was feeling iffy about the film version of   You Are My Sunshine,  but both the character posters and the trailer have looked so good that  I’m actually really looking forward to this.

The trailer released today focuses mostly on our leads played by Yang Mi and Huang Xiaoming, following them back in time through their seven years apart.  It also has glimpses of the supporting cast of Angelababy, Tong Dawei, model He Sui, EXO’s Huang Zitao, Xie Yilin, Li Chen, Ma Su, Sun Yizhou, and Joan Chen Chong.

“Sorry, I didn’t have an abortion. May 1st, return simplicity to love” – Yang Mi as the idealistic Zhao Mosheng

Unapologetic for the story’s simple and pure love story (I still don’t understand how the TV version managed to drag for 40+ episodes ) and poking fun at the recent surge in films about youth love stories that are a bit too similar,  the film version of Gu Man’s You Are My Sunshine 何以笙箫默 released its first set of stills this week.

The  Enlight film stars Yang Mi, Huang Xiaoming, Angelababy, Tong Dawei, Xie Yilin, and film debuts by EXO’s Huang Zitao and model He Sui. The film is set for a May 1st release.

Tang Yan Takes Over January with Double Drama Release

January marks the release of two highly anticipated dramas starring Tang Yan: My Sunshine (何以笙箫默) and Lady & Liar (千金女贼). My Sunshine will begin airing today, January 10, and is scheduled to finish its run near the end of the month, just in time for the premiere of Lady & Liar, which will start its broadcast on January 27.

Based off a novel of the same name, My Sunshine stars Tang Yan and Wallace Chung as ex-university-sweethearts whose paths have not crossed for seven years. The series recently unveiled its ending theme song, “Why Love” (何以爱情,) performed by Wallace Chung. It’s uploaded to Croton Media’s official YouTube channel, which will hopefully have episodes of My Sunshine available in a timely fashion.

Zhang Jie sings yet another theme song; Tang Yan, Wallace Chung pretty in the sun

If you ever get a jeopardy question “this person sung the theme song for XX drama”, your best bet would be “Who is Zhang Jie?” After singing the themes for Ancient Sword, Cosmetology High, and Romance of the Condor Heroes, he’s also taken over the theme from My Sunshine starring Tang Yan, Wallace Chung.

P.S. I just figured out this series is from the  team that brought you the adorable The Boss & Me.  This means … yep, legal viewing right on YouTube via the official Croton Media channel. It also means we’ll get a speedy release. Some more recent stills below the cut, and theme song MV below:

A set of stills was released for the adaptation of  My Sunshine 何以笙箫默 starring Tang Yan, Wallace Chung.  There’s also a segment released, but if you haven’t read the book (or if you’re like me and can’t remember anything about it) , it’s probably not super interesting.

Also, news came out that Yang Mi and Huang Xiaoming will star in a film version of the book (assuming they get the filming rights sorted out).  I’m not sure how I feel about either Huang Xiaoming or Wallace Chung pretending to be young.  Maybe the Huang Xiaoming/Yang Mi version can use newbies to play their younger selves? 

Here’s the long trailer, mostly of them being emo:
