Gu Jiacheng, Nonkul dive into Plop of Youth

Thai actor Nonkul ( Bad Genius) dives into Chinese drama with synchronized diving drama  Plop of Youth 扑通扑通的青春.  The series focuses on two pairs of divers – retired diving star Jiang Bailong (Gu Jiacheng), Thai exchange student Veet ( Nonkul), and freshman pair Lu Haoran (Sun Weihao) and Tian Lin (Liu Yingquangang) –  as they   try to save their diving team.  Given how shippy synchronized diving is, I’m going to guess this is yet another bromance drama.
