Directed by Huang Tianren (Here to Heart, Someday or One Day), the 40 episode drama is the leads’ second collaboration after Love Under the Moon, and began filming today.

Victoria Song, Ou Hao, Danson Tang star in The Moon Knows Not My Heart

 I just hope this film airs before the real estate bubble in China pops or it’s going to be really awkward.

Coming off what I feel like was the best idol drama of the year so far,  His Excelleny’s First Love /Moonshine and Valentine, Victoria Song is filming her next series with Ou Hao and Danson Tang.  The Moon Knows Not My Heart 山月不知心底事, based off the book of the same name by  Xin Yiwu (So Young, Never Gone,  is once more an extended love triangle spanning from school days to the work place.   The synopsis is very spoilery so I’m not going to translate it, but just get that the focus will either be on her journey from a poor girl to a top real estate tycoon, or a love triangle between two rich brothers and a poor girl.
